We chose the program with two nights at Tabanan in Bali and two nights at Glenmore, East Java. It was a brilliant experience. Everything the other reviews say about Wayan and his family are true and they made us feel as special as they are. At Glenmore, Amir's family were equally welcoming and eager to please. The cultural contrast of staying and eating with a Hindu family and then a Moslem family was fascinating. The highlight was the visit to the former Dutch plantation still fully operational but in a time warp from when the Indonesians reclaimed it in 1947.
