Reviews for Bali holidays, rice terraces & beaches


review 6 Jul 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The whole holiday was fantastic, I really liked the Hindu temples at Prambanan, the carving are so well preserved and its just beautiful, make sure you have enough time to look at the smaller temples as well. This is even better than Borobudur and 2 hours is not really enough.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Dont miss mount Bromo, the sunrise is spectacular and while we were waiting there was fantastic lightning storm around some more distance mountains. But it does get very cold and you normally get there 1.5 hours before sunrise, however, for around 1.50 you can hire a good quality and clean padded long coat with a hood which kept me so warm. When you get out of your jeep and walk to the look out there are several people hiring them . This is well worth doing as you wont want to pack heavy duty warm clothes just for this. If you are going to Komodo in June - Aug its the mating season, we saw four juvenile dragons but it would be best to get a speedboat there and be there for around 06:30 when they are more active, this would mean missing out the enjoyable traditional much slower boat where you get a very tasty lunch and snorkelling. It just depends what you really want to do.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes, all the guides were local and the guide at Baluran national park was doing really great work on teaching local children about ecology and wildlife preservation. He was so interesting to meet.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

It was a wonderful holiday, all the hotels were lovely and we were so well looked after.
