I was trained as an Environmental Engineer, so I'm aware that any eco-warrior must first come to terms with his own hypocrisy and mediocrity. Yes, we still burn fossil fuels. We cannot claim to be a carbon-neutral company, as it is not yet technologically possible. We do our best to reduce our carbon footprint while educating our staff, our partners, the communities we work in as well as our honored guests, inviting all of you to join us on a journey towards environment stewardship together. Ubud has been home ground for Bali Eco, and we would like to give back by offering guests local insight through our new "Ubud Morning of the World Living Museum Walk & Spa" journey. We have also introduced a half-day Eco Ubud Cycling tour that takes you on a 19 km route through the rice fields and backroads north and around Ubud, finishing near the Monkey Forest. Both the Ubud morning walk and the afternoon Eco Ubud Cycling are ideal for those who wish to have a local "orientation" of Ubud, as we will point out to you our favorite local eateries that serve the authentic local cuisine.
We have decided to limit the number of people we can accept on our tours on each day to ensure every guest has a quality time. Our staff love doing their jobs well, they take real pride in their achievements, and we would rather suggest guests book on another day than overcrowd any of the tours. To cater to different needs and fitness levels, we continue to come up with variations on our products, especially on the Cycling Tour and Mt Batur Trek. We also remain flexible to requests for tailored tours to suit our guests.
They say there is no greater flattery than imitation. Unfortunately, many companies have tried to use the Bali Eco concepts, ideas, even the name, as well as the published literature without our ideals, ethics, scruples and eye for detail. There are some poor quality "copy cat" operators pretending to be us. When booking a 'Bali Eco' tour whilst in Bali, please ensure you are definitely booked with Bali Eco. As we have run on a trust system and collect final payment at the end of the tour, on occasion we have had other companies show up early at hotels to pick up guests who have booked with us! We are putting procedures in place to avoid this, and appreciate your assistance. Do make sure that the guide picking you up is wearing a bright blue t-shirt with "Bali Eco Tours" logo on his chest and "www.baliecocycling.com" on the back of the t-shirt. We offer a professional and well-trained team, international standards of safety and hygiene, our warmth and genuine desire to please our guests. We trust you share our vision and we promise to make your stay in Bali a memorable one.
Wishing you meaningful adventures, as well as ecological, cultural, culinary and learning experiences while in Bali,
Kadek Adidharma & Team
