There was a great experience and time with Gila travels team. Was on New Year trip to Bali 2018/2019. All program and activities were created to get maximum from culture and location for 2 weeks. To summarize, just want to tell that I get a lot of emotions and impressions and recommend to travel with Gila anywhere they go.

Amazing, breathtaking, deep, unforgettable, mind blowing, delicious - I run out of words to describe how lit it was to travel with Gila Travels. Say buh bye to cliche Balinese photos, and say hello to the places which you can’t find on map 🌝

I recently came back from the GilaTravels Wild Indonesia tour. I waited a few weeks to collect my thoughts before writing this review. If you are looking for a lazy relaxing vacation, this is probably not the tour for you. Go take a cruise or book a week at a beach resort. BUT, if you are getting bored of typical vacations, and you want to challenge yourself, intellectually, culturally, physically, and emotionally, you will LOVE this tour. The tour was split into 3 parts: Part 1: Wildlife. You will visit natural sanctuaries of elephants and orangutans. This is very different from visiting the zoo. This is their home, and you are visiting them as a guest. Part 2: Mentawai tribe. You can read about the Mentawai people on Wikipedia. They are native people of the Mentawai islands. You spend 2 nights living with a Mentawai family. If you are like me, who grew up in the western world, this will fascinate you. You will also experience the clash of civilizations - many Mentawai people are leaving the tribes to live and work in nearby towns. This part will test you physically (hiking in mud), mentally (the guest house is not a 4-star hotel). But you will come out with an expanded understanding of the world, and perhaps yourself. Part 3: Wild beaches of Sumatra. This is the final part of tour. You relax at an amazing and pristine private beach resort. Away from the crowds. I needed this to decompress and process my emotions from Part 1 & 2. It's much needed before I return to the "real world" In summary, if you want something different, exciting, and challenging, this is the tour for you. You will come away a more "complete" person, and wanting to explore the world more. In fact, this is the reason why I am a GilaTravels fan. Its tours stimulate your 5 senses and leaving you with a renewed sense of adventure and curiosity. Highly recommend!!!
