Don't take our word for it.  See what other tour participants have to say about Balifornian Tours.


Undoubtedly THE event of a lifetime.  It was the trip of our lives and Michael and Maryam are so knowledgable, helpful and fantastic.  We were able to do things that other tours could only dream of- Truly spectacular.- David Florida, USA

You both are fantastic!  Your attention to detail was wonderful and your thoughtfulness of our needs very appreciated.  I have many fond memories and had a wonderful time.  Your emails, information, suggestions and support were very helpful and much appreciated. And the thoughtfulness of both Maryam and Michael to check in with us individually to make sure we were OK, comfortable, needing anything.  Maryam and Michael are very knowledgeable and work hard to make things go smoothly.  They are a great team and led a well organized tour. - Sue, California, USA

Thank you so much for organizing such an amazing trip. Everything was truly special and one I will never forget. You guys are not only an amazing tream, but are truly special people. I very much look forward to returning to Bali once your villas are built. Thank you again!- Alyson D. New York, USA

Anyone want the vacation of your life? Bali is an amazing place and the people running this tour are even more amazing. Balifornian Tours is the best way to experience Bali.-  David M, San Diego, California, USA

Thank you both so much for a great great trip. You were both really thoughtful and accommodating and we learned so much from you about so many layers of Balinese culture and lifestyle. I will recommend your tour to everyone I know and I wish you both the most success and happiness.- April D. Los Angeles, California, USA

Loved the more personal touches-
  Michelle, Paris, France

It was PERFECT. Our driver was superb. We wanted to take him home with us. -Renee

I love the batik I made.I am not a very creative, artistic person but doing this made me feel like one!-
Awesome, relaxing, we felt like Queens!
What a special, spiritual time.  I loved it and felt honored to be a part of it.
I had a wonderful time.  The setting couldn't have been better.  I felt like I was in a movie.  I had the time of my life and will go back again.
You have so much knowledge and wisdom of the most beautiful, spiritual country in the world!
I love the people of Bali and am thankful to have gone with you both.- 
Linda, California, USA

Absolutely the trip of my life.  I don't normally go on tours as I don't want to be a "tourist" but I would not have gotten 1/4 of what I was able to experience on this vacation.  This was easily the best tour I have ever been on but even more importantly, it was the best holiday vacation I have ever dreamed of.  It sounds cliche but it did change my life. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! - Karen

I am not one for tours as I like my freedom but this did not feel at all like a tour.  It felt like a small group of good friends or family.  I know I could not have experienced half of what I was able to without the expert guidance of Michael and Maryam.  I had been to Bali before but looking back, I really missed out the first time and I am so overjoyed that I decided to go with Balifornian Tours, as I know now, I saw the true culture and came away with a deeper understanding of the people, religion and sheer beauty of this magical island paradise.  Highly reccomended!!! - Steve, Spain.

Being from Texas, I'm hard to please but Balifornian Tours was able to make Joanna and I feel so comfortable and happy. We did some amazing adventure travels and I was able to witness mind blowing culture, events, food and natural wonders. If you go to Indonesia and don't travel with Balifornian Tours, you will make a huge mistake. This was an incredible travel experience and Michael and Maryam's guided tour of Bali and Lombok was invaluable.
