WHAT TO EXPECT
If you want to make the most of your time in Bali, this is a must-do tour!
Our local guides know Kerobokan like the back of their hand and will take you to some amazing spots. Keep your eyes and ears open - these are not places you’ll find in a guidebook!
Our tour is designed to give you all the information you need to have an awesome time on Bali. You’ll get to hang out with a fun local guide who will give you expert tips on what to do and where to go. It’s a unique opportunity to tap into local life on Bali and we promise you’re in for an adventure. Feel free to ask as many questions as you’d like - we’re here to help you!
During the tour, we’ll go on an introductory city tour of Kerobokan. Here, we’ll visit some of the locals’ favourite spots including a charming antiques warehouse and a popular Japanese cafe. Kerobokan is world-famous for its stunning rice terraces, so we’ll of course also do a mini tour of this area.
Walk through the rice fields
We’ll kick off this awesome experience with a stroll through Kerobokan’s fantastic rice terraces. The beauty of the rice fields might just be the best-kept secret in the Seminyak Kerobokan region - prepare to be blown away!
The rice terraces were first planted in the 9th century by Hindu priests. They’ve amazed both tourists and locals with their stunning beauty ever since. As the seasons change, you’ll see the terraces take on different looks.
One of the most amazing things about the rice terraces is the local irrigation system called subak. It’s more than 1,200 years old and is a fascinating peek into Bali’s rich agricultural history. You’ll soon see that it’s much more than just a watering system. It creates ecosystems for new life and it’s closely connected to the local communities’ temples.
Explore Kerobokan’s best spots
After all this natural beauty, we’ll head back for an introductory city tour of Kerobokan. As we stroll through the city, we’ll visit the places that the locals like to hang out in. One of the top spots in town is a vegetarian Japanese cafe that’s famous for its yoga classes and delicious food.
Next up is a large antiques warehouse full of interesting knick-knacks. This is the perfect spot to pick up some original souvenirs, so keep your eyes and ears open!
Hang out on our awesome deck
We’ll end this epic tour on our private deck with a view over the rice fields. We want our guests to have as much fun as possible with us. This is why you’re more than welcome to buy a drink and hang around with your lovely new friends after the tour. In fact, we can’t think of a better way to unwind!
Kick back, enjoy the breathtaking views, and start making some awesome plans to explore beautiful Bali!
What to bring
- Comfy running shoes/sand shoes/river sandals that you don’t mind getting wet and muddy in the rice fields
- Please don’t wear any alcohol-branded shirts or singlets/tanktops
Our awesome tour leaves at 5.45 pm from our Bali Urban Adventures office on Jl Raya Kedampang, Kerobokan.
Directions: from Jl Kerobokan heading north, turn right at the lights known as LIO corner (J l. Petitenget is on your left). You’ll now be travelling toward Denpasar on Jl. Tekumar. Turn left at the next lights onto Jl. Mertasari. Continue on this road for 3-4 km and you’ll arrive right at our doorstep.
Oh, and our office is very easy to find - it’s in a shipping container behind Seminyak! We also have a giant VW Kombi facing the street.
Our Locals On Tap tour is more of a meet-and-greet with fellow travellers than a standard tour. This means that there might be more than our typical Urban Adventures limit of 12 people per tour group. It’s what we always say: the more, the merrier!
We need a minimum of 4 people to run a tour. But don’t worry - if there’s less than 4 people booked in for your tour, we’ll contact you two days prior to the departure date with some just as awesome alternative tour options.
Children are more than welcome to join this tour. Children under the age of 6 can come along free of charge while children aged 6-11 pay children’s ticket prices. Please let us know at the time of booking if you’re bringing a child under the age of 6. Note that we’ll walk about 2 km through the rice fields, so your child should be comfortable walking this distance.
This is a child-friendly experience. Children under the age of 6 are permitted to join this tour free of charge. Please inform us at the time of booking if you’ll be bringing a child under the age of 6. You can do so in the special request box on the checkout page. However, please note that we will be walking about two kilometres through the rice fields, so please ensure your child is comfortable walking that distance.
“Locals on Tap” tours are meet-up experiences and therefore require a minimum of four (4) people to be booked on any given tour. Should there be fewer than four (4) travellers booked on your chosen date, you will be notified by email five (5) days prior to the date of your booked tour and provided alternative tour options. Otherwise if you don't hear from us and have your voucher, your booking is confirmed.
