Here is a selection of the most recent reviews of the Bali Cycling Eco Tour with Buffet Lunch submitted by actual travelers. Read what travelers liked, what they loved, and what they thought could be improved.
We really enjoyed this cycling tour. It is easy cycling, and except at the beginning and end, it is all down hill. Bikes were great, easy to use gears, and good breaks. There are stops to be told about the surroundings, and also for a morning tea snack. You finish with a cooking lesson and lunch.Reviewed by: Peter H, November 2012
Cycling tour was great. Highly recommended. Just get the hotel staff to call the tour company as I had trouble dialing locally ( I was probably dialling wrong codes). The tour guide was really good.Reviewed by: Ashish D, November 2010

Tour guide was very professional and considerate, possibly could have supplied additional water, maybe riders could have a bottle attached to bicycle so they can gain access when requiredReviewed by: Graeme B, Australia, March 2010
A fantastic trip during which you get to see the 'real' Bali. I would definitely recommend this trip as it is one of the best trips I have ever done.Reviewed by: Anonymous, Australia, September 2009
We were surprised to find out that we were the only ones on this tour which was brilliant. Our local guide, Darta, was really fabulous and willing to answer our many questions and was able to speak English well. He provided us with heaps of knowledge about the Balinese culture on our way to the cycling starting point. The mountain bikes were in reasonable condition and the roads were "interesting" providing us with a bit of an obstacle course at times which was a great challenge. It was very rewarding to be away from the hustle and bustle. The cycling through rice paddies and many villages was absolutely fabulous. In total we rode about 15km but it was mostly all a gentle down hill ride. We finished up at this lovely place where we learned about the Balinese cuisine including demonstrations and we also participated in the preparation of the food. We finished off with a lovely lunch consisting of the food we helped prepare.
We would certainly recommend this tour to anyone!!!Reviewed by: Coopwell, Australia, May 2011
This is a really nice tour and a good way to get out and about and see some more of Bali. The cycling is on bikes which may have seen better days but they were well maintained with good brakes. The cycling was a little bit start and stop as the guide would point a lot of things out. It would have been nice to be on a route with more riding, I think we rode for a hour and a half. At the place we stopped, we were given drinks and local snacks which was nice. We then went to watch a cooking demonstration of the local foods and were able to have a go, which was fun! Our lunch consisted of the things we had made which was nice! After lunch we were taken to a plantation onin the bus, where we saw coffee being produced and then were given 7 or 8 different coffees and teas to try which was interesting! Then it was the end of the tour. It is worth doing but if you want a cycling tour, this maybe isn't the one for you. If you want a tour with cycling, cooking, seeing lots of sights etc, this is great!Reviewed by: SUSANNAH R, November 2010
Excellent bike tour through the real Bali, where people work their farms in order to survive. After a 1.5 hour mini van trip through Bali, the 2 hour bike ride commenced, down a gentle sloping gradient. During the whole ride, I think I peddled 5 times, and that was only after I stopped. There was a bit of a hill to peddle up, but this was not a drama. We were given an authentic Bali lunch, where all the herbs and spices were ground up fresh and mixed with the meats. A Great experience. Our tour guide seemed a little uncomfortable at first, but soon warmed to us. After lunch, we boarded the mini van, and headed to a jewellery warehousefactory that specialised in hand made silver jewellery decorations. We then reboarded the min van and experienced different sights of Bali for approx 1.5 hours ride back to our accommodation.over all well worth seeing and experiencing.Reviewed by: NeilC, Australia, August 2010
Enjoyable, however the ride only took one and a half hours not three.
The guide, did not give us any info on how the bikes worked or about the country etc we travelled through.
Still a very enjoyable experience.
