We were picked up by Moon (our friendly guide for the day) and taken by a comfortable air-con mini van from our hotel in Nusa Dua direct to the coffee plantation in Ubud. Short walk throught the plantation where we were shown the many herbs, spices and fruit growing as well as the famous Luwak. We sat overlooking the ricefields and plantations and tasted beautiful coffees and tea while having a light breakfast of crepes (if you are a big breakfast eater make sure you have breakfast before you leave the hotel or take something extra with you).
From there to the mountain for photos and then started our bike tour.
The tour is all down hill, hardly any peddling at all through villages and beautiful rice paddy fields. The roads were quiet, (apart from a small section when Moon and his assistants directed us through a couple of intersections) we always felt very safe while riding on the side of the road.
Lunch was at Bob's house/family compound, cooked by his wife. Delicious indonesian food - included yummy satays and if you're vegetarian there were plenty of great vege dishes too. Beer and sodas were included in the tour price which went down well with our group after a hot day riding in the sun.
This tour is great for anyone wanting to see a bit of Bali - Ubud area and villages especially if it's your first time to Bali. On saying that I lived in Bali many years ago and still enjoyed this tour - great value for money, fun, delicious lunch, great guide. I would def. to this tour again!
Thanks to Moon and B.O.B
