I’d highly recommend this as a great way to see some of the surrounding areas of Ubud. Fantastic guides who know their stuff and speak English. You essentially feel like you’re being adopted into the family for the day! We were picked up at 8am and headed straight to the Tegallalang rice terraces before the crowds. Here we got some good knowledge on the growing and harvesting of the rice. We then went to an organic spice and coffee farm. The place was very well run and we learned a lot about the local food and their ingredients.
Then we headed off cycling! Almost all downhill, the 3 short uphills are fine. Our guide gave us ample warning and made them into playful challenges. We had no problem with traffic and the sights and villages are lovely. We stopped at a Temple to talk about the local culture, families and traditions. Very interesting. We also had a nice water/banana refuelling stop. After a great couple of hours cycling we visited a family home where we were greeted really warmly and learnt about life in a traditional Balinese home. All in all I can’t fault it and would recommend it to anyone. Chris L
