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.
