What our guests are saying

"What an incredible experience! Drishti Journeys did an incredible job at the execution and planning of the Bali Retreat. From being pickup up at the airport to enjoying excursions across the island to being wined and dined at fabulous restaurants in Bali, this was one of the most incredible trips of my lifetime. Reinier, the host did an unbelievable job executing this trip and thinking of every little detail to ensure everyone was happy and comfortable. For me, this is important because of my dietary restrictions. I never had a problem... once. The itinerary was thoughtfully planned out to incorporate the perfect amount of the Balinese culture, outdoor activities, cuisine, downtime, and yoga/meditation. Emily, lead us through yoga and meditation. She is an incredible instructor and these were the best yoga classes that I have taken. She made everyone feel comfortable, beautiful in our own skin and encouraged us to be present in every moment throughout the journey.
If anyone is considering a Yoga Retreat, look no further... Drishti Journeys is an obvious choice. My positive experience was in big part due to the leaders of this program. I will be attending more retreats! Thank you for giving me this experience. I knew on the trip that "Bali is/was working..." and it continues to work in my favor through every new day. Namaste!"
