I recently had the pleasure of traveling through IVHQ to Bali Indonesia. This company is so reliable so easy to work with and so extremely helpful with the whole process, not to mention affordable. I volunteered teaching kindergarten in Ubud. I had the most amazing experience of my life so far! The culture, the people and every thing about Bali was special. IVHQ helped make the whole experience easy. I would recommend this program to everyone looking to travel abroad.

How can this program be improved?
It amazing, no need for improvement!
