About Us

WHAT MAKES jan's tours UNIQUE:

jan's tours was amongst the earliest established official tour operators, and was started by Jan, a westerner, rare in Bali inthose days, who was able to see the island through the eyes of a foreigner, and therefore had the edge over other operators, with a completely different perspective and knowledge of what appealed to visitors and what their expectations were,  and her husband Djati, western educated, and one of the few local Balinese able to speak English fluently at that time.   Employing University lecturers as tour guides they explored the island finding the unique corners amd back roads which became their icon.Those were the days when no telex, faxes or emails existed and reservations were by "snail mail" sometimes taking 6 weeks to arrive each way.   

Now propelled into modernity and the technological age, accompanied by the development of high end resorts, great restaurants, a myriad of things to buy, and busier roads and traffic, jan's tours still endeavors wherever possible to utilise quieter back village roads on our excursions, so avoiding as much traffic as possible, and giving the visitor a chance to see the real Bali, less commercialised. The care taken in designing excursions with this in mind makes our services unique.

Our tour guides these days are top award winning guides, carefully selected for their warm and friendly personalities, humour, knowledge and love of their country with a genuine desire to share it with visitors. Many of our guides are requested again and again by repeat visitors, and strike up lasting friendships which continue long after visitors return home. The standard and personality of our guides also makes our services unique.

Our drivers are carefully selected for their expertise, knowledge of road conditions and care taken on excursions. Not all speak English, but make a good team together with the guide, as this allows the driver to focus on road conditions and traffic, so providing comfortable safe excursions, while the guide focuses on giving information and pointing out things of interest en route

Our services are based on "experiential excursions and we endeavor to provide experiences not provided by other companies, and also to give the clients a chance to build up a relationship with the guides and drivers and sometimes their families, so that they return to their homeland feeling they have made friends here.
