Being a fervent traveller, I’ve experienced more than my fair share of dodgy tour operators. Because of poor past experiences I often prefer to travel independently. There are times however when a guide is necessary, especially in developing countries, when I don’t speak the local language, or when access is just not available without a local.Putting the planning in someone else’s hands could either be a wonderful time saving practice, or a long nightmarish day of visiting sites for a few seconds in between extended tortuous hauls in tourist shops, where the guide gets a free lunch and commission, while unsuspecting travellers are paying 10 times the price the artisan actually gets for their work.
I could rant for hours on the misadventures I’ve had at the hand of roguish tour guides, but… fortunately, here I tell of a different experience – an encounter that has given me hope that tours can indeed be wonderful. They can be personalised to my individual desires. They can be painless, and gracious, and truly hassle-free experiences. Asia World Indonesia and their team in Bali have given me that faith.
Asia World Indonesia taught me a lesson about outstanding service on my latest visit to Bali. Tell me if you have ever been greeted by an airport official with your name board the moment you step off the plane, and… then be chaperoned through to arrivals, skipping immigration queues, and delivered safely and swiftly, to the care of your personal butler on the other side? Well, Asia World Indonesia are true ambassadors in their home country in delivering this type of unique assistance. Read in detail about their VIP arrival service via this link. It was during this service that I decided to find out what else they could offer me while on the island.
While being transferred to my villa by a chauffeur and butler in a pristinely clean and gently perfumed vehicle, stocked with mineral water and moist towels, I learned of Asia World Indonesia’s many services.
