REVIEW ABOUT THIS TOUR (2016 JULY)
Thanks for an awesome mountain bike trip. Infinity were fantastic, totally reliable and easy to deal with. The guide Ming was absolutely great. So friendly, informative, fun and just a really top bloke. The driver Lila was also fantastic. Every time we pulled up he was magically there with cold drinks, bananas, energy bars and other treats, plus an ice cold towel which was just outstanding. The trip was well thought out and planned. The accommodation was good and the best thing about your choices is location right at the beaches and accessible to nearby warungs, bars & shops. It is great to experience the 'other' side of Bali and real Indonesian culture in the little villages we visited in the mountains and on the coast. I'm back in Australia now in the cold winter weather and already missing Bali and its friendly people. I'd definitely ride with Infinity again and I hope to be back next year, probably with more friends. Regards, Mark
