CME Tour Program Bali
"Excellent! Loved the trip and well worth it. Life changing experience, excellent speakers and very well organized. Met some great people and will keep in touch for future trips. Will definitely book another doctors-on-tour trip in the future."
-- Dr. Janel Gracey, London - Bali, 2012 
"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"

-- Dr. Nilam Clerk & Shobha Amin, Toronto - Bali, 2012

 Introducing BALI...

...the most magical, and mythical, of all the charismatic archipelago of IndonesiaBreathtaking 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 unique 16 day program has been specifically designed in conjunction with the Bali Institute for Global Renewal (BIGR). BIGR has offered medical programs, global conferences, educational programs, cultural immersion/service learning experiences and global leadership training to more than 2000 people of all ages from over 40 countries.  More than 200 NGOs, corporations, organizations, media outlets and private groups have been sponsors, supporters and promoters of these programs. Major global leaders, Nobel Prize awardees, social activists, award-winning authors and film makers, CEOs and heads of large non-profits have participated and helped facilitate well over 200 programs and workshops.  Visiting dignitaries have included former Indonesian President Gus Dur, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Prize honorees Betty Williams and Jody Williams, Afghanistan Red Crescent President Fatima Galani, and the Bhutan Head of Home Affairs.
