Its hard to put into words how amazing my trip with Bali Intro has been but it is definitely the best trip that I have been on. Most of the activities and experiences on the trip are things that I would never have done if I had taken this trip on my own. Everything is organised for you so you can fully enjoy the trip without having to worry about anything.
From the start of the trip our group leaders Bonnie and Adam were amazing. Bonnie was there to meet us from the airport and gave us all the information we needed about the trip while still making sure that everyone was having the best time. Adam was very knowledgeable about Bali and all of the places that we visited and was there to answer any questions.
The trip takes you to a number of different places all over Bali and the Gili Islands and the accommodation was so much better than expected at each place.
The tour is packed with lots of different activities so that there is something for everyone but you also get to see and learn about the country.
My favourite part of the trip was the volcano trek. It was worth the very early wake up and climb for the views of the beautiful sunrise at the top.

Thank you Bonnie, Adam and Intro travel for an amazing time.

First off, I think it's important to say that yes, it's totally possible to move to Australia alone, without the help of a tour company. It is much cheaper and you're still able to make many friends. That being said, I don't regret participating in Oz Intro whatsoever, as the security, all of the bases and planning being covered, plus the life-long friends I've made (not to mention the ridiculous amount of fun I had!) have made it worth the price.

Oz Intro does a really good job of preparing participants for their time in Australia, whether this is to work, to travel, or a mix of both. On top of this, our leaders have still kept in contact with us (even with it being 9 months later and both of them having moved on from their time with Intro Travel, this says something about the kind of people working there and it not just being about numbers). This week was incredibly fun, with a lot of great group activities and some wild nights out. Adele and Greg were wonderful leaders!

It is important to note that you're going to need a fair bit of spending money to cover the meals not included in the program price, and to cover the (crazy!) cost of alcohol in Sydney. With this, it's good to know that this trip is a bit of a big party for young people. With a party bus to the bar and free drink tickets thrown in here and there, it's good to expect a week long bender (and is probably not a suitable trip if you're looking to relax and quietly explore the city).

I do hate noting this, but as another important tip: at the end of your week, the Intro Travel team is able to plan your travels for the rest of Australia and you can book all excursions and some hostels with them. It's a difficult situation, as you don't want to have plans made before you do this group (as you will meet plenty of new friends and may want to travel with them, as we did), but if you are uninformed about travel in Australia, could end up spending a lot of money and not knowing what you're getting into. Look into the best parts of the East Coast (like the Great Barrier Reef, the Whitsundays, Fraser Island..) and have an idea of the kind of trip you'd like, before just saying "yes" and booking it all through them. ALSO - highly recommend you avoid the Loka bus service and go with Premier or Greyhound, as they are MUCH cheaper with the same level of service.

All in all, I don't regret the group at all. I'm still very close with a lot of my group and look forward to our reunions. Pack some Advil and stay hydrated!

How can this program be improved?
A more clear description of the partying involved, as I believe this may not have been communicated well to some participants, especially where it was a main component of almost every night of the program.

As well, I think it would be beneficial to have the travel talk on the first or second day, before we're facing an 8-day-long hangover and aren't able to absorb anything. Not only would it be better to have a good understanding of travel in Australia earlier on (to have time to think about your options), but I believe it would be useful to have a better explanation of the travel options available (e.g. being told one bus is quieter and one has a more tight-knit group isn't sufficient explaining - it would be more helpful to know that one bus is the largest bus service in Australia with charge ports and lots of legroom and is $300 less than the "tight-knit and fun" bus, which uses very small, poorly ventilated busses with no legroom).

Words can't begin to cover what an absolutely phenomenal experience I've had on this trip. I came away with two of my closest friends and have left with a whole family! The itinery which covers the main highlights in Vietnam was fantastic. In such a small amount of time I was able to experience the true Vietnamese culture and explore some of the most vibrant cities in Vietnam. It was a perfect mix of culture, adventure and of course nightlife. What's Vietnam without a few shots of rice wine hey! Cycling through the stunning Ninh Bihn, kayaking through beautiful Halong Bay, catching a catfish with my bare hands (Bear Grylls eat your heart out) and crawling through war tunnels were just some of the fantastic experiences I encountered. Of course none of this would of been what it was without the fantastic people I met (best friends 4eva) and of course our lovely tour guide Faye. Having been on a few tours in the past with different companies I can honestly say that Faye has been my favourite guide out of everyone. She was friendly, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and made every experience so much fun. Her passion for Vietnam really shone through during the tour. The way in which she became so excited and passionate during every explanation or experience we had, made her a truly amazing tour guide. If you want a true Vietnamese experience I highly urge you to book onto his tour. Intro travel provide such fantastic intineries and it's down to Faye that I have booked another one. Faye you have made this experience unforgettable and I truly hope you are our guide in Sri Lanka! Bring on the next tour. Mot, Hai, Ba, YOOOO!

It's hard to put into words how good this trip has been. There has been beautiful scenery, Amazing people and incredible nights.
Intro travel has obviously put a lot of thought into their trips creating a perfect balance of partying and culture. They've split up the the ways we travel so it's as efficient as possible to tour this beautiful country in the time we had. To tie this whole trip together we have our group leader Faye who was unbelievable, she managed to bring the entire group together as a family pretty much on the first night and keep us together until the last one. She will be out with you having a good time on a night out. She will be haggling down the locals that are maybe a bit too ambitious with their prices. She will be with you when you are ill or down. She will also know when to just leave you to your hangover for a little bit.
The point is you won't regret this trip and you'll be lucky to have Faye with you along the way.

As I was travelling solo for the first time I was really nervous about what to expect, had an absolutely amazing time, met some amazing people and definitely made some lifelong friends. Our tour guide, Faye was brilliant, she got to know us all, constantly looked out for us and helped us with anything we needed as well as being really fun and always happy, she was great to be around! Won't ever forget this trip!
