Testimonials from the Bali Adventure Tour May 1 through 10, 2013

Char, just wanted to thank you for going over and above in making sure that our trip to Bali was one we will never forget.  The whole group really appreciated all you did to ensure every detail was attended to so that we were able to fully enjoy the Balinese culture, breathtaking beauty, and the superb food.  I especially enjoyed the monkey forest, visiting the ancient temples, and just relaxing on the beach.  Great job – I hope to do it again!  Frank

We have just returned from an unforgettable tour of Bali with Charlaine and Akhila. Charlaine’s knowledge of the language, culture and personal experiences of the island added so much to our trip. Each day we practiced gentle yoga and a short mediation with Akhila and it set the mood for the day. We felt very blessed.  The people have a generous and holy spirit that is visible everyday.  The beaches have to be some of the best we’ve seen, super surfers and great waves. The food was excellent, lots of fresh fish, veggies and fruits.  Our hotels were unbelievable, The Mansion in Ubud was magical and a perfect place for a yoga retreat. The Sanur Beach hotel provided access to the sea, swimming pools and shopping. The Balinese dancing is very dramatic and colorful, something we have never seen before and will not forget.  Thank you Charlaine and Akhila for a trip we will always remember.    Patty and John from California

Charlaine Ramsay is truly a  5 star  professional  - best tour guide ever! Her knowledge of Bali and the Indonesian culture is comprehensive and her ability to communicate the language is priceless. Her 10 day itinerary provided ample opportunity to explore and go deep into the beautiful rich culture of the Balinese people.  Her attention to detail was thorough and her thoughtfulness was present each and every day of the tour.  We loved the hotels and meal choices and her planned activities gave us a wide-ranging experience. From Herbal walks, to sunset dinners, animal adventures, to Gamelan and Balinese dance performances, each experience was outstanding! Having a tour guide with you every day saves countless hours of trying to arrange your own transportation and daily activities, plus her ability to speak fluently with the locals helped clear up all possible communication problems and she was able to make unique and special arrangements for our enjoyment. I hope to return to the Indonesian Islands soon with Charlaine. The people of Bali are truly peaceful loving souls who are a pleasure to do business with.   Akhila

In May 2013, I had the pleasure of visiting the island of Bali with small group leader, Charlaine Ramsay.  Charlaine was raised in Indonesia, and speaks the language which was a teriffic asset.  The small group experience, personal touch, and Charlaine’s  desire to have each individual experience the wonders and history of Bali,  helped create memories that will last forever.    Judi
