Reviews

10 Day Bali Tour With Nurul
Just finished the most amazing 10 day tour around Bali thanks to the best tour guide ever Nurul. I can’t even express the positive impact Nurul had on our tour. She went to a whole nother level to go out of her way to find the best places to go to which never disappointed and went above and beyond to help everyone with whatever they needed. I was ill on the trip and she wouldn’t rest until I had got everything I needed from different doctors and checked up on me so regularly! She by far is the most amazing human I’ve ever met and she made the Tour by far the most memorable tour of my whole 6 months travelling. Definitely do this tour and get Nurul if you can! Thank you so so much to Nurul the amazing trip wouldn’t have been the same without you!!!

Ten days in Bali…
I did the ten day tour in Bali with Nurul the tour guide. She is an amazing character! Made the trip memorable, full of energy and very well organised. Our trip went smoothly, plenty of laughs! I’d recommend Nurul 100%!!

10 day Bali experience
Just finished our tour with Nurul, well what an absolutely amazing woman/tour leader! Nurul went above and beyond to make sure our trip ran smoothly and couldn’t do enough for us, so full of life and positivity our trip definitely wouldn’t have been the same without her! Nurul you are amazing, thank you! Lauren xx

Bali with Nurul
I honestly don’t think I’ve ever met someone like Nurul, she’s incredible! Even before starting the tour Nurul was in contact with us all, checking in and letting us know how much she was looking forward to meeting us, putting us all at ease and making the first night fab! As the tour continued she was always there to offer help, advice or even just a chat, nothing was too much. She was constantly making us all laugh and really helped make the experience what it was. This is one my first solo trips and it’s going to be hard to live up to as Nurul and my group made it pretty unforgettable :) x

komodo island hopper
I joined the tru travels tour in October. This tour entailed joining a group who were on the Bali experience 18 day trip. Our guide was Ovinda. She was amazing as a tour leader! Very welcoming, fun, caring, easy to talk to, well organised and informative about Indonesian culture. She had so much enthusiasm everyday and explained everything we were doing. She would go above and beyond to ensure we were having the best time. In terms of the itinerary I think it needs some tweaking. Those of us that joined the trip for the komodo section had a chill beach day on the second day. This worked ok for those in the group who had also done the prior 10 days in Bali but for us we felt it would be good to have an optional extra to do an activity. Some of us decided to hire a driver and boat to go to Pink Beach. Ovinda ensured she had all the details and contact info so if we needed anything we were not stuck. She always made sure she knew where everyone was. The komodo boat trip was definitely the best part of the 9 days but the boat need some improvement, especially in terms of there being enough food for a larger group like we had. However, the activities we did were incredible. We swam with a group of manta rays, hiked Padar Island at sunrise, chilled on pink beach and saw Komodo dragons.
