Ari was one of the best tour leaders I've had with Intrepid! The trip was great (including food and driver) - I only wish the trip itinerary allowed for more time to enjoy the pools and beaches.

Very informative about the history and geography of Indonesia and Bali In particular. Lots of historical facts to process, and explained well by Ari. He was particularly attentive to my needs, when in motion and otherwise due to my age.

Loved the contrast between Java and Bali on this trip and would definitely recommend it rather than just going to Bali as many people do. Our tour leader Maman was a gem!

This tour was OK but not quite up to expectations. Our leader, Nova, was great. There are some long travel times as local traffic can be very heavy. Jakarta and Canggu were underwhelming but the more rural areas of Yogyakarta and Ubud were much better.

Julie · Traveled May 2023
Had a wonderful trip and got to experience many different sides to Indonesia with each stop offering really unique experiences (Jakarta, Jogya, Bali Mtns, Bali Beach). Our main guide and all the local guides & drivers were great too - friendly and knowledgeable. The hotels were excellent and the food...the food! I couldn't fit enough chili sauce in my suitcase to come home. This was my 1st trip traveling solo and it couldn't have gone better, I felt very safe and made friends with some of the others on the trip. For others' consideration in booking, the itinerary is pretty full and is mostly cultural and religious activities (as opposed to more nature/active activities) but was a wonderful experience.
