A very interesting five day Bali tour – Yes! You have heard it right, we went as a gang of five – me and my college mates, every year we guys plan for a week tour to some amazing places, this year one of my friend wanted to visit Bali – exotic Bali as it is called. The tour covered some of the best places in Bali like Kintamani, Ubud and Tanah. Literally our guide was able to cover many places in these five days including rice terraces, elephant safari, royal temple, holy spring temple, monkey forest, coffee plantation. The rich aroma from this plantation tree is still lingering inside me. Actually I am writing this review mainly to say my view regarding the stay over here, I never expected that Bali would have such marvelous hotels, inns, motels and villa. We basically took for rent one of the villas and the reception that we received here was sumptuous, we explored the rice fields which was excellent and one of its kind. It is heard that these farms are famous for subak system of traditional irrigation in Bali. One of my friends is an agricultural engineer and he was explaining us the benefits of all these things. It is really a matter of pride to see that this small place is not only rich in culture and heritage but it is also contributing a lot to the economic system of the country. On the way we came across many villages like Ubud, Celuk, and Mas. These places are known for wood carvings, art work and gold jewel making. I have also shared some pictures that have been taken from the high road side location that covers the hills, mountains, beaches and more. Overall we learnt loads from this amazing trip to Bali in five day.

A fabulous country with great friendly Balinese – this is the limelight of my trip to Bali for five days, my company had arranged for a five day sightseeing tour abroad, and this is when we all immediately nodded our head for Bali when one my colleague hinted that this is a wonderful place on Earth, so immediately without any second thought our team hired the travel agents for Bali. It was like a dream destination spot for me and my team never expected such a type of output from a foreign state like this. Such a small place but there is many things in store from Bali. What inspired me more in this place apart from sightseeing is the culture of the country, it is simply out of the world experience, as they say big things come in small packages, even though this was a small tour package we were able to cover many things under one roof. The Elephant safari was somehow missed out as we lacked time, but no regrets I am planning to go again next year with my family personally. Some of the best places that I recommend over here are Legian and Sanur. And Guys don’t miss out the rich rice farming vegetation and coffee plantation at Bali. If you plan and jot down the main landmarks you can very well get a chance to cover it all. A little bit of planning is enough to enjoy such a place. Note – if you don’t research and visit there are chances that you will miss out seeing important attractions at Bali. Bali is completely safe for couples and family, so I recommend this tour for people who want some privacy in their trip. A final word – my review is incomplete if I don’t mention my tour to the volcano. Splendid tour!

Bali is indeed a great vacation destination! I went over here along with my husband on our honeymoon, initially I was bit afraid to take up a cycling tour as you need lot of energy to cycle in and around Bali, but the organizers gave us lot of rest time so that we could refresh. Well speaking about the trip – great and fabulous. Cycling to the terraced rice fields and visiting the adjacent landmarks and villages were more than memorable. Jatiluwih is known for its famous rice paddies and I am happy that I saw that for real, well speaking about the real fun – the water rides, the sporting activities and the bonfire were charming. Food was good and we were offered plenty of activities to indulge in. The guides were supportive and had good communication skill. Suggestions – Carry comfy footwear, sunglasses and a good camera (Guys you have loads to capture at Bali). It was an amazing and pleasant stay at the Pacung mountain resort (nice resort experience – I ll write about this a review separately) Well guys if you are planning to take this trip I advise you to take few days of stretching exercise in prior so that you can enjoy to the core!

Well that now I am back from my Bali 6D/5N cycling tour, I have only two words to say – enchantment incarnate! Even though this trip can be a great trip for couples or friends, I feel it is ideal for family vacation too. I took up this trip with my wife and we got that full-to-full enjoyment. The itinerary and the procedures were explained to us well in advance to us by our team and so it was easy for us to stick to it. The whole way cycling to Volcano at Batur and then cycling to Pacung - Mengwi – Ubud was a bit tiresome (but if you have stamina you can very well manage it). Still the night halt at the hotels and the resorts gave us the needed break and took off the tiredness’. My wife loved the cycling to the rice fields and the nearby village. The folk dancers danced well to the local music and we should admit that we got an exhilarating experience, well all that being said, the trip was above average with prices being at par with the services. Lastly I would like to wind this review by saying that I recommend this trip for sure.

Bali is paradise on Earth! But to enjoy this place you surely need to make sure that you hire the proper channel of tourism, I went alone for a four day sightseeing trip to Bali, got the booking done online and started off to take a break. It is an absolute place for relaxation and refreshing; I would surely choose this place and suggest it for any people who are longing for adventurous and memorable trip. The places in and around Bali are pleasant, peaceful and rejuvenating. I fell in love with the Kuta Beach, this beach is far better than the beaches I have been before; the organizers gave ample time to sit and relax here. I am not a great foodie but still I enjoyed the typical seafood that was served here at Jimbaran, and I have no words to say about the boat ride, I was allowed to indulge in plenty of water activities ( parasailing, banana boat and so on were unique and absolute fun). It is an awesome place to visit for couples, family and friends. Above all this trip was like a stress buster to me! Enjoyed it full to full!

WOW TRIP! Some of the highlighting things of the trip are the visit the spring water temple, Balinese coffee plantation and the rice plantation, our last day included visiting the local villages and this showed the living style of the Bali people. If you use the best company for the tour then I am sure that the trip will be a memorable one. Overall I can say that this was an inexpensive and worthy trip. What is worthy to talk is the scenic view of Bali rice fields that are more than amazing! Thumbs up to my organizers for delivering such service!

One of the best experiences of my life is this Bali trip. I have no words to start or end, but then definitely my trip will become incomplete if I don’t write a review of my memorable trip, Had been on this tour with my office people and each bit of the trip is simply superb, the blue waters of the Indian ocean are still in front of my eyes. The tour guide took all efforts to see that our trip covered the entire itinerary. It is surely a must do trip, the tour unfolds many aspects that I never even wondered would happen in my life.

I had always wanted to go on a trip that is full of adventure and yet covers the cultural heritage of the country, and this is when I got to know from my colleague about one such place in Asia – Indonesia – Bali. It is really amazing to know that Bali is filled with such rich cultural heritage, spectacular beaches, nature, spirituality, art and above all the rural villages are off the talk. As soon as I heard of all these things, I couldn’t simply resist booking tickets for me and my family. I planned for a five day tour sightseeing trip to Bali. The multitudes of offerings of Bali are simply overwhelming. Bali has many temples and extraordinary sceneries that will keep you mesmerized in it for the entire lifetime. My kids got a real treat the whole way during the travel period as the roads we travelled covered many picturesque terraced rice fields and many more. My little daughter was in fact saying that she never saw all these in her life for real. The memorable part of our Bali sightseeing tour was the rustic villages that the tour agents covered which included – Ubud and Kintamani. The huge range of mountains, lush forests, wet rice fields and the bountiful vegetation of the country is still in fresh in front of my eyes. My son has captured all these beautiful places on his tab and has uploaded in his social media; the responses were simply great and amazing. My wife loved the historical monuments, art galleries and the museum in particular that is filled with the hidden gems of the country. I feel that this place is personally a great destination for family vacation or tours. If you are looking out to capture some memorable moments that you can cherish for lifetime, then this is it – Bali.

Being a history student what can be more than useful than visiting the famous country Bali. When my parents had arranged for a Bali three day tour, I was more than happy. Bali is a lovely place with beautiful villages, temples, plantation groves, money forest, lakes and more. It is in fact a cluster of many things under one roof. A perfect family holiday destination spot! This is one of the most exciting expeditions that I have ever been before in my life. Our tour started on September 5th (first day) we were dropped in the hotels and we immediately were asked to meet within few hours to head to the Batubulan village, here we enjoyed the Balinese in their best dance form – Barong dance, visited the famous art villages nearby and we halted at the monkey village (great wildlife) this region gave us scope to know about the wildlife and nature of the place. Once we were done with Kintamani region, we went to the Tirta Empul (lovely place); from here we were dropped to our hotels. The second day was a visit to the famous Ayun temple, Ulndanu temple and Bratan lake view. Then we were shown the important plantations and rice terraced fields and again dropped at hotels. The third last day was super fun with visit to Beach and water gaming activity. Though my parents were not able to enjoy much of water sporting games; I and my brother enjoyed to the core. The water games offered here are surely unparalleled to any other water sports in any part of the place. The day ended in a beautiful way with a visit to the Jimbaran bay (don’t miss out the seafood being served here). Only regret is that we were not able to take up the Pandawa beach in this tour.
