The Bali on Bike tour was the highlight of our stay in Bali - we arranged this trip with Bob with no problems.We gave him a ring and the rest was sorted! We were collected in a very clean air-conditioned car and taken to meet Bob. He greeted us with a big smile and an even bigger personality! We started our trip by visiting a coffee plantation and sampling different coffees. Here we were also given delicious pancakes which had been prepared by Bob's wife. The staff at the coffee plantation were also very friendly- there was no pressure to buy anything but we did anyway, just because the coffee was so good! After this we were taken to see Mount Batur which is spectacular. We then drove a short way to commence our bike ride: amazing! The bikes were in really good condition and sized correctly, Bob ensured we each had a bottle of water, he provided helmets and cycled along the way with us telling us all about Bali and the Balinese way of life. The route was beautiful with mainly very quiet roads going through villages and paddy fields. Bob was very accommodating allowing us to stop to take photos at any opportunity. The cycle is easy and mainly downhill but even if you did have enough of cycling the car was following behind as support. The trip ended at Bob's home where his wife had Bintang and a spectacular lunch waiting for us. The food was delicious and VERY plentiful.Bob had lunch with us and told us about his family and their traditions. We were made to feel really welcome. After lunch and a chat we were driven back to our hotel. We cannot recommend this trip enough - more than just a bike trip and Bob and his family were wonderful. Don't leave Bali until you've had the Bali on Bike experience! Thank you again Bob!
