Who should consider joining The Bali Experience:

We like to preserve the energy of our small groups to make sure everyone traveling in our squad has an equally great time!  That being said, we welcome travelers into our travel family who are positive, can go with the flow and are eager to try new things, learn different cultures and are cool with interacting with new people.  Truth is – you may not know most of the people in our travel group on day 1, but by the end you will have more cousins in your extended family.

Additionally, one of the requirements is someone who will pinky promise to read the information we send prior to travel. We will have a pre-travel conference call and a Facebook group to answer any questions you have to make this a fun experience for all.

Lastly, there will be a fair amount of walking during our time in Bali, with some of the historic landmarks containing many steps.  Many of the places we’ll visit and the properties where we’re staying aren’t accessible for those who have impaired mobility.  We just want to call this out so you can make the determination if this experience is right for you.
