"We took the one-day guided tour. Our motorcycle was a Kawasaki 250cc enduro. The tour ended up being around 10 hours. We got to see many different locations including a brick-making factory village, various temples, rice paddies. We also had a delicious lunch at village Wurung and ride up the mountain on winding roads to a secret waterfall which was breathtaking. It is highly recommended for anyone who wants to see Bali on 2 wheels. Plus our guide was great and spoke English so he was able to provide insight on all the sites we visited. It was worth it and of the best experiences of my life. I also ended up renting the bike for 2 more days just to get around on my own. Although, I would say it's not a tour for beginner riders."

"It was an excellent service and an awesome one-day guided tour. Kris was extremely accommodating leading up to the tour and made he a great bike suggestion, the Honda CB150R. The tour I selected was a unique mixture of riding the back roads up into the moutains and cultural visits. I thoroughly enjoyed the day especially riding along the winding back roads both tarred and dirt, experiencing the smells of home cooking, dodging dogs who park themselves in the road, and catching glimps of typical Balinese life as we ride through traditional villages. I highly recommend this tour!"

"My rental experience with this company could not have been any better. I did my research and visited other rental agencies and chose this one based on the condition of the bikes and customer service from the owners. I am an avid enduro rider and rent from only the best and these guys went above and beyond the rest. The bike ran flawlessly the entire week and I highly recommended Motor Adventure Bali."
