The riding was diverse and challenging. I loved the thrill of the paths along the volcanic rims but also the trails and country roads through the rice paddies. A great job was done designing the cycling route for each day so that we rode through new landscapes and saw different communities. A great feature of the trip was that some days ended in lovely coastal areas with beaches and snorkeling.

Eddy was an excellent guide. He seemed to know every dirt path on the island of Bali, and he adjusted our route to ensure it was at the appropriate level for our skills. He went far above and beyond his duties to make sure we enjoyed our trip, even inviting us to his home so that we could see first-hand how Balinese families celebrate one of the biggest Hindu holidays of the year. This was one of the highlights of the week. I couldn't recommend Eddy highly enough as a guide--he provided stellar service. I really appreciated having a support van and extra bikes always at the ready, along with snacks. The driver made a special effort to get us local fruit that was in season and that we'd never tried before. I had a very positive experience and am planning to go on another SpiceRoads trip in the future. It was an amazing way to see Bali, and had just the right amount of physical challenge to make the trip into an adventure. I was very pleased with the excellent service provided by our guide, Eddy, and would highly recommend this trip to others. Thanks for making my holiday such a memorable one!

Fantastic trip & you get to see the real beautiful Bali. Eddie was marvous - very friendly & always willing to help - always happy. The highlight was when we had lunch with his family

A fantastic way to experience Bali. SpiceRoads took the worry out of everything and allowed my son and I to experience the beauty of Bali and it's amazing culture up close in the way that only biking would allow. It gave us access to parts of Bali few people see. What an incredible culture and what an incredible way to experience it.
Wayan was everything you'd want a guide to be -- full of enthusiasm and knowledge -- we knew we were in capable hands.
SpiceRoads is a class act from start to finish.

Guides - Lovely people - could not have been more helpful.
Best quality bikes I've had on a Spice Roads tour - looked virtually brand new
Some technical sections were too challenging for us so we got off and pushed - not a problem as we expected this to be the case and the others were happy to wait a few minutes more for us to arrive
