"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"

Introducing Bali...

...the most magical, and mythical, of all the charismatic archipelago of Indonesia. Breathtaking panoramas of cultivated rice terraces, impressive volcanoes and pristine beaches. Some call it the ‘Island of the Gods’ - a truly beautiful tropical island inhabited by a remarkably artistic and spiritual people who have created a dynamic society with unique arts and ceremonies. Our island adventure will take you to Ubud, the heart of Bali’s arts, dance & music; Amed, with it’s lofty mountains, curving bays & crystalline waters; Mengwi with it’s wonderful views and rural life; Pemuteran and Menjangan Island, an amazing snorkeling and beach experience; and Sanur, a mature beachfront town. Embark on a cultural immersion as you meet with traditional Balinese healers, enjoy private meetings with royal families, explore sacred temples and experience colorful ceremonies. Bali has enchanted visitors for centuries – let it cast it’s spell over you as we take you on an educational journey that you will never forget…..
