Serene and spectacular Bali is only one of Indonesia’s 17,000 islands, but punches above its weight in every way imaginable. Our tours immerse you in this enchanting volcanic island, with leisurely sightseeing and free time to enjoy its gorgeous beaches and seas. Explore the rich culture, forests, and temples of the highlands town of Ubud, and relax on the palm- fringed sands of Seminyak or Kuta, with optional sunset cruises and day trips to idyllic islands to make your stay extra special.
With our Escorted tours, you’ll enjoy the services of guides throughout your vacation to show you around the sights and provide background and context. You’ll benefit from a local guide in each place you travel to—with some trips providing the same local guide throughout and others a different local guide for each city. The guides will be there to answer your questions and provide local insight about your destination during the city orientation and optional tours. When free time is specified on an Escorted itinerary, it means you’ll be left alone to relax and explore as you wish.
Semi-Independent tours are generally medium-paced and often offer more free time than Escorted tours: cue free days and evenings specifically set aside for you to explore alone or join optional excursions. The tours include local guides who offer grassroots recommendations and guiding services on city orientation and optional excursions; with some featuring the same guide throughout their duration, and others using different guides for different cities, days or activities. Airport-hotel transfers may be handled by different representatives, while in other cases, you may need to take airport shuttles and short cab rides independently.
Our Independent tours are designed with freedom and independence in mind, essentially leaving you to do your own thing while you’re in your destination. The tours include all your travel and vacation essentials—return flights, round-trip airport transfers and accommodations—but exclude the services of guides.
