Group Medical Director: 

Dr. Mel Borins, Toronto, On.

We really enjoyed the tour of Bali and we were glad that we could do it with Dr. (Mel & Bonnie) Borins who showed us the real Bali and not the tourist angle. Every moment was an experience of it’s own. Thank you so much for organizing such a unique experience"
