Testimonials from Travelers

Kim’s years of building relationships with local guides who love this beautiful country and its people made the trip very rewarding. Their knowledge and explanation of the culture, religion, and customs helped us understand the country and fall in love with Bali. We loved the variety of experiences and the ability to have time to explore on our own.  We would recommend this trip.
— Bob and Marilyn Thompson, Bali 2017 Travelers
I highly recommend Kim Hammer’s tours, Travelling to Bali went beyond my expectations and dreams, learning as we travelled about the culture, food, art and meeting the people of Bali was an experience that will always be a happy memory.
