Volunteer World Reviews
Ubud volunteer experience
Submitted by Jacoba Hucht - Duesseldorf Germany | December 29, 2017
In Mai 2017 I was volunteering in Ubdu, Bali for one month and had the best time of my life! To get everything organised beforehand couldn't have been easier due to the great and helpful people of Volunteer World. They answered to all questions within short time and there is a great choice of different volunteer opportunities on the page to find the perfect fit for anybody.
Spending my time in Bali teaching kids in school english has changed my attitude and gave me the chance to see the world with different eyes. The organisation, transportation, introduction to the program was smooth and I never had the feeling of being in a foreign or insecure country, Volunteer World still was in with me for all questions and checked back if everything is ok.
There was an introduction week with all the other volunteers where we got the chance to get to know the surroundings and the culture of Bali better. We had a cooking course, language courses, city tour, went to the monkey forest, a Balinese temple and rice fields and had lunch together every day. Living on the ground a Balinese family and get to know their lives better has been amazing!
I would recommend to everybody out there to experience such a life changing trip and make the world a little better.
Thank you Volunteer World:)

Quality of culture

I'm Olatosu Gabriel, I was so touched when I travel to Tanzania, with a lots of unexpected surprises, really enjoyed my tour over there, especially in Zanzibar, their masquerades where so fine, they moved out with voodoo, flames of fire coming out of their head, women half naked dancing on their toe. Some strong men holding their masquerades that held cutlasses,
I had a lot of time watching their festival, I enjoyed the way of their greetings, prostration and two hands on their head,
I also visited a port, where I saw some animals, some that I have never seen in my life, also visited Kenya, I enjoyed their meal and their women so cheerful and lovely, most are black but beautiful, also visited Ghana in Accra, really enjoyed the cool place, with lots of fun, clubbing and enjoyed their women hospitality,.

The service was exceptional. I had many technical difficulties and someone was always there to help me out. Thank you so much!
So easy to get in with organisations and tailor a search based on what my interests or travel requirements are for the experience. Love the range of filters and ease of and booking. I especially appreciated the transparent ethical guarantee on the website when looking at programs. Really great site!
I've spent two weeks at a horse sanctuary and I had an amazing time! It is a nice project, you learn a lot horsemanship and respect towards the horses.
