really really good

10/10

(Y) A life-changing, beautiful place with kind people working to make the experience a once in a lifetime experience. The biggest highlights were the cooking class, mountain trekking and of course the sunset on Gili island. Sandhi was an especially personable and helpful guide who made us feel like we weren't just tourists in a foreign place for a visit, but instead we were getting a chance to really live parts of the culture with his help and guidance on things like food, things to do and just general knowledge and history on the many amazing things we went to see and do. It was an amazing experience and I will definitely be coming back again soon.

AMAZING experience! I enyojd every minute of it! Our tour guy Sandhy was wonderfull houst, he help us with everything we need always ready to answer any our question! His knowledge about history and colture realy make me feel like I am knowing better the Bali people and learn more interesting things about the island. I am definitely coming back soon with my friends. My favorite place was Gili T island, with amazing beaches, food and people it just felt like the most unique place to be!

UltimateNZ, the perfect intro to traveling in NZ

10/10

I'm SO HAPPY I decided to do the UltimateNZ Tour. While I was traveling in Australia, I decided last minute to take a trip to New Zealand with Ultimate Adventure Travel. Since I participated in their UltimateOz Tour when I first arrived in Australia and had the best time ever in Sydney, I was convinced their UltimateNZ tour would be just as fun! Our tour guide Faye was the best guide I've ever had on a group trip and she just made everything simply awesome. She's super spontaneous and funny, maybe even a little crazy and she just has a great personality. Though we had tons of fun in Auckland, I was glad we got to leave the city and discover the Coromandel, which is the place where I fell in love with New Zealand. Everything, literally EVERYTHING was so unbelievably green and beautiful. We stayed in a small, family-owned lodge which was super cosy and rustic. They had sheep and orange trees, it was just the best. We stayed there for 2 nights and did a lot of hikes to enjoy and take in all the nature the Coromandel has to offer. Our tour group really bonded in the Coromandel, especially during our "family dinners". We all felt sad when the tour had ended and everyone went their separate ways, continuing their travels in NZ. Though some people stuck together in group or ended up meeting each other a week later. UltimateNZ really offered a great start to everyone's travels in NZ. We all felt comfortable starting our big gap year, thanks to the travel and work information session, all the help we got figuring out sim cards and bank accounts and of course the legend Faye that made the week unforgettable! Thanks Ultimate <3 Can't wait to start planning my next Ultimate Tour!

Ultimate Bali

9/10

The tour offers everything for an intro to Bali! I would definitely recommend for solo travellers! A definite highlight was climbing mount batur and watching the sunrise! The early start and hike is well worth it. The tour leader shandy was incredibly friendly, and went to huge lengths to make sure we had a fun time whilst educating us on Balinese culture. The trip has a lot of structure, and everything is organised for you. You literally just meet at the allocated time in the reception of the accommodation you’re staying in and you get driven around in a very well air conditioned mini bus. There are also lots of opportunities for “free time” to spend as you wish. I was quite disappointed when I first heard that there were only 2 other girls starting the trip with me, however it could not have worked out any better as we grew really close and just felt as though I was on holiday with my friends! The trip ends with a few days in the gili isles which were absolutely stunning and lots of fun. We stayed in really nice hotels, followed by a very decent hostel in gili t. It was a great ten days packed with lots of activities! I definitely recommend!

How can this program be improved?

Provide accommodation for the tour leaders in the areas the tour moves to (especially the night before the mount batur hike!).

Hey Georgie,
Thanks for your review. Great to hear you had an awesome time with us on Ultimate Bali! Watching the sunrise from the top of Mount Batur is just amazing isn't it?! We've taken on board your feedback about the tour leader's accommodation and have implemented the changes for upcoming tours. We hope to see you on another Ultimate tour in paradise soon!

10/10

I went on the Ultimate Bali 2017 tour. A huge draw for me to the ultimate tour was that it included both the mt Batur hike and the Gilis and I'm glad I did because they were both amazing!
I think we were all a little surprised that the group was only 5 of us but that turned out to be a really good thing because we became really close! Our trip leader Shandy was the absolute best. So kind and helpful. He would commute from home everyday instead of staying with us so sometimes he didn't get any sleep at all but you wouldn't know it because he was always smiling and happy to answer our questions. The accommodations were incredibly nice, way nicer than expected. We never had anything to worry about everything was always just taken care of including all the major sights/experiences, transfers/schedules and plenty of cold water inbetween sight seeing. Definitely recommend!

How can this program be improved?

Provide lodging for tour leaders if that's not provided already for farther destinations like Ubud so they don't have such long days.

Hey Kierra,
Great to hear you had an awesome time experiencing Bali's beauty! Aren't the Gili Islands just stunning?! Love your pics! Thanks for your feedback. As Bali is relatively small and easy to travel around, some of our tour leaders prefer to return home to sleep however we have taken your feedback on board and will be organising accommodation (for the entire trip) for tour leaders for all future tours. Hope to see you on another Ultimate adventure soon!
