In the words of TMT travelers:

"Merci for the wonderful voyage of discovery, it should read "discoveries" of a fascinating side of Bali and Balinese culture I did not experience fully or find on our first trip by ourselves.
Carol Zemlin

"My experience in Bali was the most memorable and joyous event one could ever imagine. Their knowledge of the island and it's culture was amazing...treating everyone with warmth and respect paved our way to greater adventures. I could never have anticipated all the wonders and beauty I experienced on this trip. I owe it all to Tribal Music Tours, every one should have a Steffi to travel with. "
Toni Rutter

"Bali, what a wondrous adventure. Smiling faces,ancient temples. beautiful music,art, great food and much,much more. This was a memorable trip. I had a great time with a group of fun people. This is a way to experience all that Bali has to offer."
Kathleen Pegliuso

"The trip to Bali exceeded my expectations both musically and spiritually. Your tour leadership was friendly, optimistic and I could tell you really love and respect Bali, its land, culture, and people. Thank you for the wonderful well planned tour. We did and saw so much in the 12 day tour and we even had time for fantastic shopping! Highly recommend."

"I loved the whole trip, but particularly loved the beach at Ahmed and the the ceremony at the beach followed by the visit at the temple across the road. But actually, I had so many favorite scenes, it is hard to single one out.
I liked my accommodations very,very much and would be happy to stay there again. I would recommend traveling with your group to my friends, and consider going again."
Chris Taylor

"I'm having a difficult time deciding what I enjoyed most. Probably my favorite was the visit to the ancient meditation caves, Gunung Kawi. That area was so beautiful!
I was very apprehensive about the drumming when we started, but I really enjoyed and got into the drumming at the soccer field on that last day.
The accommodations which I had were exactly what I had hoped for, very much " Balinese"
I've told everyone about the beauty of Bali and that if you want to learn about the culture of Bali, this is the tour to take."
Don Park

"The Tribal Music Tour to Bali was a life-changing experience for me. The trip itself was way beyond even my expectations. Intimately interacting with the masters of dance and music from the island, witnessing from within the spirituality of the Balinese people, playing drums and being a part of a fund raising for the disabled children on the island, and most profound, meeting an amazing healer who was able to take my pain away. This was more than a vacation! This was a regeneration of my life force!
Should YOU go? Of course you should!"
