WAYAN'S TRADITIONAL COOKING CLASS: One of our very best TruExclusives is our legendary temple guide and masterchef Wayan! Friend and TruFam member for years, he’s practically a celebrity when it comes to our Bali tours. After an accidental meeting on a rainy day in Bali we met Wayan, many years later he’s been teaching our TruFam how to master the art of cooking up traditional Indonesian cuisine in his family home. Is there a more authentic experience? Probably not. We’ve worked with Wayan for years, and he only takes us to the best of the best. His infectious smile really is the TruExclusive itself, but to top it off the food is out of this world. We spend the day checking out the markets and visiting the insta worthy rice paddies. Because really have you even been to Bali if you didn’t get a pic at the rice paddies?
MOYO ISLAND: With only 50 tourists allowed to visit a day. It’s paradise. Crystal clear waters, untouched waterfalls. A dream destination. We take you there by boat for the day where we meet a group of locals who take us on a kick ass bike ride into the heart of the island. If you’re looking to go off the beaten path and see Indonesia in all its glory - MOYO IS THE PLACE TO BE. Not many people can say they’ve been to Moyo, but hey, the TruFam can.
LIVE-ABOARD BOAT: A TruExclusive like no other, 3 days 2 nights on our private live-aboard boat bound for the Komodo Islands. We’re taking you to some of the most scenic islands in the whole of Indonesia. Totally off the beaten path. Swim in the salt lake crater on Satonda Island, snorkel at Manta Point, trek up to Gili Lawa for a viewpoint like no other. Visit Pink beach before we enter the prehistoric world of Komodo Dragons. Inhabiting only 4 islands in the world, seeing Komodo Dragons in the wild really is a once in a lifetime experience. Sleep under the stars, sail the seas, dine onboard with your TruFam for 2 nights watching the sunset go down…beer in hand on your own private boat. What’s more exclusive than that?

Are they as pretty as you saw on scrolling through Instagram months before this treat! Baby, they’re BETTER IN PERSON! Don’t forget to pack those elephant pants you bought on your first night travelling and a T-shirt to cover your shoulders to show respect when visiting the temples. After learning a little bit more about Bali and it’s wonders, we head to a funky beach bar lounge. Grab a cocktail or Bintang (That’s Bali’s famous beer) and watch the sun go down.

We’re learning about all the ingredients used in everyday Balinese cooking as well as ‘Canang Sari’ the local offerings made for the Gods. Bali has some of the most delicious foods in the world so it’s only right we learn to rustle up a couple. Will you be a world-renowned chef after this? You better Bali-eve it! Wayan, a TruTravels legend and his family show us the art of cooking Balinese food and of course, we overindulge after. You cooked it, so you deserve those calories of course! We spend the afternoon at Ubud’s sacred monkey forest where it’s believed that hundreds of monkeys live here to protect the ancient temples within. They're cheeky little creatures so keep a hold of your belongings! They're also known to jump in a selfie or two. We know, we know, they’re bananas! ;) After spending our day monkeying around we head back and get ready for dinner and drinks with the TruFam. First, drink to order?

Bali and Beyond tour
I did the 18 day and had the BEST time. Ovinda our tour guide was incredible and I couldn't imagine a better person to explore Indonesia with. She made the group feel like a family, I always felt I could go to her with any questions or issues and she was so enthusiastic. The tour itinerary was amazing, I felt I really got a taste of Indonesian cultures especially as the tour went on. Many of the activities we got to participate in were real pinch-me moments that I will treasure forever!

Bali&Beyond
Ovinda was the BEST tour guide EVER! This was my first group trip and she made everyone feel welcomed and really facilitated a family environment. All the activities were AMAZING and I had a blast snorkeling and exploring the waterfalls.

Bali and Beyond tour
We had an amazing tour, meeting a lot of awesome people, while discovering Indonesia! Ovinda was such a well organized, helpful, funny and kind guide. The best experience was the 3 day boat trip, snorkeling with huge Mantas and seeing the komodo dragons.

Epic guides. Ovinda is incredible!
I'm currently half way through the 18 day Bali and Beyond trip with Ovinda and I cannot rave about the trip and Ovinda enough. Having been on other group tours, I can safely say Ovinda has been the most incredible tour guide I've ever had, and I cannot overstate how much of a difference it has made. She is so much fun and keen to be involved with us in every aspect of the trip (activities dinners etc) and she's made a real effort to get to know us. She's gone above and beyond to make sure we all have the most incredible time. Ovinda recognised how important it was to me to see the Bali Bombing memorial in Kuta as I lost a family member in the attack, and she managed to shift and move plans around to get me there without disrupting everyone's trip. She even came with me to see it which was extremely kind and thoughtful. She did all this without me asking (I offered to get myself there and miss an activity to do so) because she could see how much it meant to me, and she didn't want me to miss out. There have been times on this trip when Ovinda has had to deal with some difficult characters and she's done so with incredible kindness and composure. I was a teacher in a previous career, and even I admire her patience and empathy for others. She truly has gone above and beyond for us every step of the way. I can't wait to spend our last few days together out on the boat in Komodo!

Komodo Island Hopper
Had an amazing 18 days on the Komodo Island hopper. Oner and Monk were fantastic guides. All the activities were well organised and the highlight of me was the 2 night boat trip in the Komodo Islands!

I had Luki as a tour guide for tru…
I had Luki as a tour guide for tru travels Bali and beyond 18 days tour. He was an amazing tour leader as he made sure the whole group was having the best experience possible in Indonesia. He catered specifically to each individual as some people wanted to party more so he would take us to the best bars in the area and some people were interested in the cultural aspect of the tour so he would be very informative in the religions and traditions of Indonesia for example languages, songs, beliefs, and the everyday life of the locals, he really made sure everyone was getting the most out of the tour. He was very professional by being on time for everything and being very organised and informative with the itinerary. He answered any questions and always helped with any inconvenience for example changing peoples rooms if they weren’t happy with them. We had a big tour group of 17 however he made an extreme effort to get to know everyone and I know we all think of him as a good friend now which we have shared the best experiences with. One evening my friend lost her bag and Luki made an effort to look for it with us even though it was 1am in the morning and we were looking for it for hours, this shows he really cares about the safety of his group and we will forever be thankful for him. I would recommend Luki as a tour guide to anyone who is interested in travelling Indonesia.

Bali and Beyond and Total Thailand
I have recently been on the Bali and Beyond trip and the Total Thailand trip and overall my experience was amazing. I had a great time and really got to experience different cultures and see some beautiful places. It was great as a solo traveller to be in a group with people in the same situation and having tour guides and a set itinerary took all the stress out of travelling. I would recommend these tours to other people however there are a couple of things for people to keep in mind when booking. If you book a trip to Thailand in rainy season activities can be cancelled with no replacement or refund - this wasn’t the end of the world and I still had a great trip but my group did end up missing things such as bamboo rafting and exploring some of the caves, and I know of another group who missed some boat trips. Also, on some trips, for example the northern part of my Thailand trip it felt very much like we were being pressured into writing good reviews particularly about the tour guides as they wanted everybody writing reviews there and then in front of them whilst we still had another day on tour with them. This is just something to keep in mind when reading reviews! The accommodation was okay, some better than others but generally nice enough, and the range of activities was good. For how easy the tour makes solo travelling I would consider using the company again. My Bali tour guide Nurul was great and did her best to help everyone, was really fun and generally just suited the role brilliantly, this is similar to my southern Thailand tour guides Arthur and Scotty. They all did their best to make everyone comfortable and ensure everyone had a great time.

The tour was amazing
, it covered everything you would want to experience in Bali. Our tour guide Nurul was the highlight though and I feel incredible lucky to have met such a kind, fun, dedicated person. She was incredibly attentive to every person on the tour and was helped in any way she could to make each individuals experience of Bali special!
