It was my first Backroads trip and my first active travel group tour, and it was everything I hoped it would be. The biking was great, the cultural understanding was wonderful, and I loved my group and leaders. Every day I felt like I was seeing parts of Bali that I never would have seen had I done the typical tourist thing - riding through remote rice paddies, touring a family's compound, or playing with a gamelan orchestra. I can't wait to do my next Backroads trip - the hardest part will be deciding where to go.

This was my first Backroads trip and I was blown away. The level of service is incredible. The idea that I can take an active trip but still be pampered is so cool and I feel, as a person of only 23 years, Backroads will definitely be the first place I look when deciding on future trips. After this experience I almost feel it is the ONLY way to travel.

I appreciated that the biking was for all levels and the van support was fantastic for a novice biker like me! I felt I got a great workout but didn't hold up the more experienced bikers. In addition to the active part of the trip, I appreciated the cultural aspects. The meals and hotels are fantastic... I highly recommend this trip!!!

This was one of the best vacations I have ever taken. Bali is a beautiful island with so much to offer, from its beautiful geography to its culture and spirituality. The trip routes were well thought-out and I was constantly amazed at the wonderful scenery we passed through. In addition, I learned so much about the country itself and its culture through our guides, I felt like I was participating in a Discovery Channel program! A very well-rounded experience, from the great activities (hiking, biking, white-water rafting, snorkeling) to the great places we stayed, to the amazing sights we saw (volcanoes, waterfalls, forests, rice fields, coast!...), to the great food we ate, to the beautiful setting and weather, to the graciousness of the Balinese people, to the excellence of our guides and to the overall cultural experience. Writing about it makes me want to take the trip all over again!

Backroads got it just right! Since we had planned the trip almost a year ago, I was worried that it might not live up to my long developed expectations, but it was truly special.

The best trip I've ever had! The leaders were superb and I greatly appreciated the amount of flexibility built into the trip as well as the enormous variety of activities. The trip greatly surpassed my expectations.

This was a great trip - very well organized with lots of options each day. This was my third Backroads trip and won't be the last! The quality of the trips, people, accommodations, meals, and activities as well as the value are superb.

It was even better than I expected, and I had high expectations! The cycling was great, and I really appreciated having the opportunity to snorkel, raft and cook too.
