“THIS WAS THE BEST EXPERIENCE EVER! I didn't have to worry about anything the whole time, all logistics were taken care of for me. I was really able to fully enjoy everything, and this would not have been the case if it wasn't for our amazing group leader Will!”

“This experience was one of the best tours Ive been on. Intro Travel always do an incredible job at creating the best tours in the most stunning countries. The safari and surfing were my highlights. Our group leader Lyndsey was always here to have a laugh and wanted to ensure everyone was happy. Will be recommending this tour to all of my friends!”

Megan's review for another Intro Travel tour
“Being a girl on her first big trip, I didnt know what to expect. However I cant put into words how overjoyed I was with everything. The Bali intro trip allowed us to see Balis most stunning sites and get the chance to enjoy this unique culture with none of the stress of booking or planning anything. The trip was perfectly organised, but Shak made it even better. He is an all round amazing guy, who was a great laugh. But also had a caring streak for any sensitive issues. I booked Vietnam and Japan without hesitation after experiencing INTRO TRAVEL for the first time. Would 10/10 recommend to anyone who wants to travel!”
