A great introduction to Indonesia

I had a great time on the 10 Day Bali Adventure. Stu made sure from the get go that we were always having fun and was knowledgeable about the local culture. Learning to surf and partying on the beach were the definite highlights for me. Also the Volcano Trek was amazing, it does involve a 2am wake up call, but it is definitely worth it and one of the most memorable moments from the tour. The tour was quite chilled In terms of activities, there was something planned everyday, but as always they are optional and didn't last the whole day so you had free time to enjoy the different places too. The accommodation was amazing, way better than I expected for the price, no hostels but twin share rooms in decent hotels. Another amazing Tru Travels tour, can't wait for the next one.

Tru to its name

This was my first group tour with Tru Travels having been on a few with other companies and after this one I have already booked another trip with Tru! The 10 day iinerary waa the perfect mix of activities, culture, must see sights and also some relaxation time too. We managed to see monkeys in the forest and swim with turtles whilst snorkeling, get up at the crack of dawn to hike for the most amazing views of Mount Batur, learn to cook Balinese food, see waterfalls, rice terraces, the list just goes on! We did all this with the help of the most amazing tour guide Rianna. Her love and enthusiasm for this tour shine through. She had loads of local recommendations to share with the group such as a good tattoo parlour, where I got my first tattoo, which I totally love!! Each day Rianna would keep us well informed of the next day's activities and plans and she would go out of her way to assist where she could. Overall she made tour as fun as it could be.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Do everything you can, there are a number of additional optional activities such as the volcano hike or paddle boarding, do them!

Amazing trip

The 10 days Bali is experience is one of the best tour i’ve ever come across, it was so well organised, all the activities were well thought through and our tour guide Rianna was absolutely outstanding. This trip had the best balance for relaxation, activities, cultural experience and most importantly so much fun. I would recommend this trip to the whole world! I don’t often use tour agencies but this trip has build so much confidence for my future trips, it has exceeded my expectations on all levels so i can imagine our tours have alot to live up to. I have so much faith in tour organisations now that i am willing to book a tour once a year just for the experience. We only live once so every moment counts, every journey has its story! Enjoy

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
How beautiful all the accommodations were for the price that i’ve paid! Value for money.

First tour experience and wont be my last. From the moment you get picked up at the airport you are made to feel welcome and excited about what is to come. The activities are all included in the price and are absolutely incredible but are also optional to give you that freedom to choose. Swimming with turtles, standing under waterfalls, climbing the volcano (an optional extra) and the Gilli T bike ride had to be my favourite moments as they were all great fun and truly unique experiences. The tour leaders (Eman, Ellias, Ri, Dean and Spicey) just made the trip for me though. I was on a budget and very picky about my meals so they were always on hand with useful tips, advice and to help plan my meals. They were all super nice, a great laugh to be around and helped all keep safe; they even rescued me when I had a monkey climbing on my head. Just cant wait to go back to be honest. Think I've found 'my place'

What would you improve about this program?
Genuinely cant think of anything I would want to change about it

My first traveling experience

I booked this tour at the start of my first experience of traveling hoping it would ease me in to the backpacking life. I never would of expected that this would be the highlight out of my entire travels this year! All of the activities throughout the tour were incredible, snorkeling, exploring the temples and rice fields, visiting some of the cheekiest locals in the monkey forest and even climbing a mountain! It was the craziest experience made perfect by the company. Not only the fellow travellers who I truly believe I have life long friends in now, but the tour guides too were a massive part of the trip. At the start of the tour I was so quiet and nervous from being so far out of my comfort zone but luckily Rianna was there to give me some confidence and push me to do some things I never knew I could and will truly never forget. Sounds cheesy I know but for me this trip was life-changing and I couldn't recommend it more!

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
Before this tour I was scared of heights, not a confident swimmer and couldn't ride a bike to save my life. All of these things I absolutely smashed out in Bali with the support of my fellow travellers and the incredible Tru your guides

Amazing!

Loved this tour so much!
Rianna and Lee were very friendly, informative and attentive, always making sure everyone was ok and having fun. They arranged group dinners/drinks outside of the daily scheduled activities, whilst also giving us free time to explore and relax.
There was a wide range of activities for everyone and my personal favourite was the surfing lesson!
We saw a lot of picturesque scenery and we're always given plenty of time for photo opportunities.
In the evenings we would go for dinner together, helping us to bond with everyone in the group more, and then we would go for drinks in bars/clubs which was a fun way to end the day.
All 3 hotels were truly fantastic, with breakfast and pools.
Would highly recommend TruTravels and this tour!

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Going on the big swing in the rice terraces, what made me overcome the fear was thinking about the pictures I would get for Instagram!

First Experience

This was my first ever tour experience and I have loved every moment. I would definelty do something like this again. Everything was well organised and mostly to time. Rianna our tour guide messaged the group every day to remind us of the daily itinery which I liked. Everyone was made to feel included even though we were all so different. All the hotels were amazing and great quality and I loved having breakfast included which set us up for the day ahead. I loved how knowledgeable Rianna was. She has so many reccomendations such as restaurants and extra activities that only someone who knows the local environment could know about. The extra activities we did included; A 0200am volcano hike, tattoos and having our fortune read by a local spiritualist.

Thank you so much for all these amazing memories Trutravels!

What would you improve about this program?
Suggestions; Our group was clumsiest group I have even encounter with people falling over or being bit by animals. I think it would be a good idea for the tour leaders to be have basic first aid and wound care training, especially when we are on the more secluded islands such as Gili T with minimal medical access. I can't imagine I would have had such a good time in a much bigger group as I would have felt lost and uncomfortable. Having a smaller group (our group was 10 people) seemed perfect.

I had the most amazing time on this tour! Elias and Dean were amazing, so fun and helpful, they couldn’t have done any more for us. They gave us so much information on each place we visited and answered all our questions. The activities were all well planned and really good fun, with the snorkelling trip on Gili T and surf-day being my favourites. All transport was very organised, in addition the accommodation was all in really nice hotels with pools making this tour really good value for money.Elias and Dean were also always up for a night out too, they took us to some great bars and ensured we all had an amazing time, I couldn’t recommend them more, will definitely be booking another tour with TruTravels soon. Thank you so much for a fab time!!

Amazing

This trip has been amazing, learnt so much about the different culture and the country due to Rianna amazing knowledge! It’s a good trip if you want to do a load of different activities, beach days, hike, bike ride, snorkelling etc. The trip ran really smoothly and had no problem with transport or hotels, everyone was really kind and friendly. Trying the local food has been the best as it’s nothing like what you would ever find in the uk, soo tasty. My favourite part of the trip would have to be the 2 hour hike up a volcano to see the sunrise, it was an amazing experience and soo glad I got to experience it. All the hotels have been soo lovely as well, great location to get to the main town and amazing people working there. I have had an amazing time and don’t want to go home!!

This tour completed our travelling experience!

Myself and my partner booked with TruTravels as the final step of our travels before arriving in Australia. At first we wasn't sure what to expect but this was honestly the best trip we done throughout the whole of our travels in Asia. We loved our tour guides (Eman and Spicey), the hotels were amazing and the locations/ activities were so much fun! The best part for us was visiting Gili Trawangan, the island is amazing, especially when snorkelling and having the chance to swim with turtles! We also loved the cooking class in Ubud (food is amazing) Eman and Spicey were so accommodating and honestly the friendliest people we have met on our journey so far, always making sure we were happy and that we were safe! Would highly recommend this tour!

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
We loved swimming with the turtles at Gili T, it was amazing having the chance to get so close to them) was an amazing experience!

Life changing experience

I had the most insightful, fun and life changing experience ever in this 10day Bali tour! Our tour guide was a ball of fun and it was really refreshing to see how in touch he is with his culture. Met lovely new people from all over the word and experienced such great memories. Swimming with a turtle was the highlight of my tour, oh and learning how to surf was absolutely amazing. Thank you so much to Trutravel for a wonderful itenary! :) *:), shout out to Spicey Spice!!! The Indonesian food was amazing! All activities were a ball of fun and of course the partying was epic. Most importantly Indonesian people are so friendly and warm, definitely something to complement, and its so amazing to see people who are true to their culture and religion, it is definitely something im taking back to South Africa.

What would you improve about this program?
The walk to the last accommodation in Gili Trawangan was extremely dreadful, with huge suit cases, so a heads up would make a huge difference and maybe getting our suitcases collected rather than puahing 20kgs on a humpy trail.

Bali 10 day

Had so much fun on the Bali 10 day tour with trutravels! For my first time travelling it was an amazing experience! The tour was very adventurous and mostly active with some passive moments for rest. Our guide Rianna was AMAZING, and extremely helpful throughout our whole trip! She made everyone feel included ,was extremely flexible and had much knowledge about the Indonesian culture where ever we went. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to explore Bali make new friends and have the time of their life! My favourite activity was the snorkeling, but wear sunscreen and some! Thank you for such an amazing time in Bali trutravels and I am looking forward to using your company again for future trips!

loved this trip!!

this trip has been an amazing experience! i was lucky enough to join a group of 7 wonderful travellers and our superb leader rianna. Each day has something to look forward to which keeps you very busy. there is a great mix of active outings, cultural experiences and fun nights out!! there were also opportunities to experience other activities that were not included on the trip itinerary, such as the mt.batur hike. Meeting a group of people coming from multiple countries was a highlight and a great way to make friends for life. visiting the rice terraces was surreal and surfing was a great way to start out the trip. meeting locals along the way was a great way to immerse yourself in the culture and learn more about bali. I recommend this tour to anyone that’s considering a trip to bali!

What was the most surprising thing you saw or did?
I learned that Bali is a great surfing location!!!

10 day Bali TruTravel

This tour was my second tru travels tour and just like the last, it was amazing. Everything was so well organized from airport pickup to all the activities. The tour was the perfect mix between adventure and chill time. I never felt like the trip was rushed or found myself being bored. Accommodation were always amazing. The hotels all had pools, breakfast included and AC! The tour guide, Rianna was so knowledgeable about all the cities and islands; giving us great food, bar and sit seeing recommendations. She was also very helpful in organizing activities for us that were not included in the tour! Like the volcano trek!!! She was so fun and always made sure we all were enjoying ourselves. I can definitely see myself doing another Tru Travel tour!!!

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Do the volcano trek! Rianna was very helpful in organizing it for us, as it was not included in the tour.
