At Better Tours we like to say you will have ANOTHER experience of a lifetime when you explore the REAL Indonesia …. because if you have an inquiring mind it’s likely you have already notched up other special and memorable adventures.
And if you haven’t, then after your first tour with us you will soon be out there looking for more … maybe even joining us once again to explore other fascinating regions of wonderful Indonesia.
We go to places and meet smiling people who are different, intriguing, refreshing, humorous, sometimes surprising, and, above all, warm, welcoming and interesting.
We explain and help you to understand, and truly appreciate and respect the culture, the history, the society and the different outlooks, values and lifestyles.
We create opportunities for you to make connections with some of the Indonesian people you meet. They may even become realationships that endure for years to come.
We see all the key attractions and also wander off the beaten track – but not too far, because we have all worked hard enough and long enough to deserve comfort, security and safety.
But we will be exploring roads less travelled because that’s where the good stuff is … the REAL INDONESIA that most of the rest of the world is yet to discover or too nervous to seek out.
And we do it all easily, safely, securely and in COMFORT!
