Real Aussie Says:
I had the most amazing time. Adam was an amazing tour rep. Actually he was more than a tour rep, he was a friend. He always made sure everyone was happy and always got everyone involved and was able to take control of any situation he needed to. The accommodation was great, so much better than I expecting for the money we paid. All the local transportation was well managed, never came across any issues and we always had some music going to keep the mood high. All the activities were really fun! Visiting the Indonesian family was a highlight for me. Oh and how can I forget...Gilli T. I wont forget the hangovers though. I have some great new friends from this trip! Bali was a lot easier to travel in than I expected and this had a lot to do with how Adam explained things and how easy this tour made navigating such a new country.
