We were picked up by our guide and driver right on time from the hotel. We had an interesting drive through the countryside to get there. First stop was coffee tasting, which was free, although I did feel a bit obliged to buy something and so bought some chocolate. Then it was onto the bikes. When we arrived I was surprised to see that we were the only ones, and that's how it stayed. We had our own private guide for the biking and he also acted as a translator for the cooking lesson.
It was great to be out in the country and see how the local people live. The guide was friendly, spoke good english and was informative.
Loved this tour! Wiyasa was the best guide ever! Just my daughter and I plus our guide. Rode mostly downhill only a couple uphills, through villages and past rice fields. Our guide explained some things along the way. Great way to get out and see the countryside, away from traffic. Stopped to talk to farmers and villagers, and to take photos, of course! After the ride, had an amazing cooking class in a lovely outdoor setting, with our Wiyasa and 2 lovely women. Learned about all the ingredients and helped grate turmeric, grind macadamia nuts, stir rice, etc. Ate our yummy meal after the cooking. I had mentioned that it was my daughter's birthday on the way there, and they surprised us with a beautiful birthday platter and singing. So sweet! Wonderful way to spend time interacting with locals -- we learned so much and had a fantastic time!
What a wonderful way to see the Balinese country side. Our bike ride was so much fun, the cooking class and lunch was wonderful. Our guide was great and very informative.
We would recommend this tour to anyone.

Guide provided great information about Bali/Indonesia on the bus ride there. Downhill track for the most part a couple steep inclines. The track is bumpy at the beginning but gets better. Great tea tasting stop on the way there. Also very nice Balinese cooking and lunch stop! I was the only person on the tour and it still ran. Tour ended early approx. an hour short probably because I was the only one there.
My husband and I enjoyed this tour very much, our guide was very knowledgeable and very friendly. It was nice to see Bali from a different perspective. The food lesson / buffet was amazing it was great to see authentic Balinese cooking and the hosts made us feel very welcome. The food was lovely. We would recommend this trip to anyone from young and old as its not strenuous work as it was mostly down hill :O)
