    The trip was incredible from start to finish, great balance of activities plus the right amount of free time to relax/shop/explore. Adele as our group leader felt like one of the group from the off, she was very informative and I felt very comfortable to follow her lead and take her advice. Unfortunately, time restraints restricted me to the 9 day tour but I would not hesitate to do the 12 day as I didn't want the tour to end. One change I would make would be the first hotel, it was ok but wasn't on the same level as the other accommodations on the tour which were spectacular (especially the villa!!!).

    I loved Lauren as our group leader. She was kind, outgoing, serious, fun and very including. The best part was that she had the perfect balance between authority and being one of us. Every day she told us what we was going to do the next day and what we needed, so that we would be prepared. I would never choose another group leader if I had the opportunity, and I hope that I will have her the next time I travel with intro travel.

    Loved this tour and Lauren was amazing! She really went above and beyond to make it special for us all. It was my birthday while we were away and Lauren made it the best day playing birthday jams in the morning and arranging a cake for our beach dinner on the evening! Wish she could do all the tours. Ps her dance moves are amazing!! Thank you for the best 9 days!

    This tour was insanely good! It gives you a good taste of everything Bali has to offer, from temples and Balinese traditions to seeing dolphins and turtles. Caidan was lovely and always had us laughing at every opportunity. My favourite part of the trip was the snorkelling around the Gili Islands as we had the amazing opportunity to see a few turtles. Totally worth every penny!
