Your Host for local Balinese cultures and intellectual backgrounds


The Island of Bali indeed presents a modern paradox, an ancient, traditional society that is still incredibly alive and vital.
While the basic conservatism of the balinese has enabled them to preserve many of their past achievements, it has never hindered the acceptance of new and innovative elements, whether home-grown or foreign.
Even today, there is a certain magic about Bali. The longer one stays on the island, the more one impressed by the many exquisite sights and the scores of talented and charming people one encounters.
First and foremost, Bali is extraordinarily blessed by Nature. Lying within a narrow band of the tropics where wet and dry seasons fall roughly into balance, providing both adequate rainfall and long periods of sunshine, the island soils, topography and water resources are all remarkably well-suited to human habitation. As a result, Bali has been civilized since very early times.
Balinese society remains strong and vital, moreover, because it promotes family and communal values.

A Recent Review of this tour

This was our second tour in two days with Wayan. If you have the time, it's a great way to get a taste Bali as there is just too much to do and see. Wayan was totally flexible on everything we did on the tour. It was exciting to go back stage before the Barong and Kris dance to see the props and meet the performers. Had to leave a bit early to do this , but it was worth it. Wayan seems to know everyone. I can't say enough in 510 characters. But let me say, "Thanks!"
