Tegallalang Rice Terraces Tour
The tour travels through rice fields, going to local villages, temples, and UNESCO World Heritage site Tegalalang Rice terraces. We also stop at your choice of a coffee plantation where you can have some free tasting coffee or visit the Balinese family home where you will meet a Balinese family and see what the traditional life in a Balinese compound is like.
At each stop, our local guide will explain to you all about what you are seeing including many items of cultural interest and Balinese life. If you travel during the rice harvesting season, we can stop and participate in the harvest.
The entire tour is done on our amazing electric bicycles which allow you to pedal as much or as little as you want. We make frequent stops and have a support vehicle following you at all times. Our guides also take pictures along the way.
