Testimonial By Heather Groves

I had an unforgettable time exploring the island of the gods with StoryScape in Bali
The stunning hotels we stayed in were so glamorous that we felt like celebrities. We were living our best life with infinity pools overlooking the ocean, gourmet cuisine that made our taste buds sing, and plush bedding that made you feel like you were sleeping on clouds.
The sightseeing; from the iconic rice paddies (with the big swing) that are so picturesque, they should be on postcards to the temples that are so serene they make you feel at peace with the world. We hiked down to view and swim in the amazing waterfalls, took tons of photos and selfies that we’ll have as memories.
Our amazing itinerary. I can only imagine the amount of thought and planning that went into making our Bali trip a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We were given the chance to do all the things we never thought we’d ever try. We got to meet locals and learn about their culture. We had time to relax and just take in the beauty of our surroundings.
Last but not least, our fabulous tour guides. StoryScape’s Nita is a gem. She always made sure that we were comfortable and informed. Our Balinese guides were so knowledgeable about Bali’s history and traditions. They made us laugh and feel like we were traveling with a friend. They helped us navigate the island with ease and made sure we were always safe and comfortable. A great tour guide can make all the difference, and Nita is the best.
All in all, it was such a fabulous trip, worth every cent (Rand) that was spent. It was such good value for money too with the exchange rate.
I can’t wait to do another tour with StoryScape and Nita

Testimonial By Merril Stainton

    Dearest Nita,

    Where do I begin. I cannot describe my recent trip to Bali as nothing but magical.

    The Balanise people are the kindest, loving, humble and strive to please at every level. I have definitely experienced a whole different kind of humanity with these extraordinary people.

    The food was outstanding. The preparation and love that goes into every meal is tangible. Every meal was so beautifully presented and one could taste the different spices as we traveled through the different regions.

    The places we visited just kept getting better. Not only were the views and attractions spectacular, there were many times my heart felt the beauty of Bali, and I had to catch my breath at it’s magnificence. There is no boubt I have brought a piece of Bali back home with me, and left a piece of my heart in beautiful Bali.

    The hotels of choice were perfect. We were certainly treated like royalty at every hotel we encountered. I must congratulate all involved for the research and planning that made Bali far more than I expected

    Our Tour Operator, Nita Payne, pulled out all the stops to accommodate everyone of us. She was kind, thoughtful and extremely professional.

     

    I would never have experienced Bali in all its glory if it wasn’t for Nita. If there is one place in the whole world I would return to its beautiful, magical Bali.

    Once again Nita, thank you for an experience of a lifetime.

    I wish you many more exciting adventures.

    Sending lots of love, appreciation, and gratitude 💚🙏💚

    Merril
