This is a really great walk through the rice paddies and then to a village to have a blessing. I have done the bike ride which I also enjoyed but we went places that you cant ride a bike like the waterfall. Wayan the guide is very informative and happy to answer any questions you have about his culture. It is an easy 7 km walk and the driver meets you in a few places for refreshments and I guess you could go in the bus if you needed to.I would highly recommend this walk as a must do when in Bali.

Wayang brought us see through the eyes of a Balinese.
Start of the day, we were blessed by the village brama. Irregardless of belief,  i do felt blessed after the ceremony, like a solemn elder who had wished us for a safety  journey.
We had never seen as many vibrant children till we passed by village school where children doing out-door activities, waving at us echoing 'Hello...Hello', seeing them chasing after ice-cream peddler; seems liking of Ice-cream has no border.
We walk through paddy field, off beaten path, fresh woody air filing up our lung.
We crossed narrow plank bridge with river running fast beneath.
all sweat and tracking is worth paid off when we were lead a forest which opens up to a ray of rainbow reflected by terrnous waterfall,  not just 1 but 2 waterfall separate by a narrow path barely wide enough for 2  to pass.
It’s a spectacular sight, i'm glad we chose Wayang.

Wayan's Off-Course Bali walking tour is an excellent way to see the real Bali! I arrived early and was given breakfast before we started to walk. Firstly to a family compound, met the Brahma, and learnt about village life and rules; then through rice fields, via waterfalls etc coupled with an excellent explanation about water allocation. other places visited included a blacksmith's shop, and wood carver; with no suggestion that I might buy anything.
Morning tea and lunch provided.
Wayan is an informative and engaging tour leader, and deserves to be successful.Great value for money!This was the highlight of my ten days in Bali, and I look forward to undertaking one of his other four walking tours.

This was my second trip to Ubud. I had been on a bike tour the first time, but Off Course and walking with Wayan was better. Wayan is an excellent communicator and is happy to answer any question. As others have said, we visited a family compound, received a blessing from the Hindu priest, walked thru rice paddys, waterfalls, etc. All beautiful. Wayan supplies explanations, water, a cool refreshing wash cloth and lunch at a local restaurant. All perfect.

Wayan is a very knowledgeable and friendly guide who shows you the inside of beautiful Balinese culture.

The walk starts of with a blessing by a Hindu priest. This is an easy walk through the outstanding countryside and backstreets of Bali! There are scenes of every day life and historical monuments to take in. Make sure you have plenty of shots available in your camera!! This really was one of the highlights of our family's stay in Bali! The food at the end is also highly recommended!

Thank you Wayan! This is a great tour, and you're a great bloke!!!

This walking tour completed perfectly my visit to Bali : on foot you see different things, Wayan explains very well how traditions and culture are all integrated into modern Bali life. He takes you to places you woud not normally see.

He is friendly, knowledgeable, adapts to the visitors..... not to be missed when you are in Bali !

This is a highly recommended tour to do in Ubud. Wayan is a wonderful guide who has a huge amount of knowledge about the local area and is fun to walk with. He will take you on an off road tour through the paddy fields and villages. Plenty of chat explaining local culture and traditions. At the end of our walk we had a lovely lunch in a local restaurant. Make sure to wear comfortable walking shoes and let Wayan take care of the rest! Don't leave Bali without doing this walking tour with Bali, Off Course.

We've had a nice trip with Wayan through the rice paddy's and small villages. Also the blessings by a Brahman priest is something you'll never forget. If we come to Bali again we will book it again.

Our walking tour with Wayan was one of the highlights of our Bali trip. We really felt like we were going "behind the scenes" as we walked through rice fields, occasionally talking to the farmers and Wayan explaining their irrigation systems up close and personal. We went "off road" to a waterfall we never would've found on our own and we visited the temple in Wayan's village. One highlight was actually going inside a home compound and learning how the Balinese really live and being exposed to their strong sense of family and community. It was so nice to be able to ask Wayan all of the questions we'd had about Bali since our arrival--and he knows all the answers. We highly recommend Bali, Ubud, and Wayan's Bali Off-Course walking tours.
