We recently did the Bali On Bike tour, because we thought it would be a good way to see the "real" Bali that you can't see from a bus or car. We were not disappointed. After picking us up at our hotel, the first stop was a coffee plantation, where we were treated to breakfast and got to sample a variety of coffees and teas, including the famous Luwak coffee. From there we traveled to view a well known volcano, where the actual bike tour began. The tour was mostly on back country roads, along rice paddies, through villages, and included several stops along the way to visit a Hindu temple, a local family, and more. Our tour guide, Moon, was very helpful and entertaining.

The tour ended at Bob's home near Ubud, where we had an incredible meal of Balinese cuisine prepared by Bob's wife. The entire tour, including admission fees and meals, was only about $35 per person, making it a true bargain. I would highly recommend this to anyone that wants to spend a day off the beaten path.
