The ride over to Gili T was mostly smooth. They did run into a mechanical issue but had the staff and parts on board the boat so we only had to wait under 20 minutes to have it fixed- very impressed. It was nice to have the same company pick you up from your hotel to take you to the boat loading. Their waiting area was a nice welcome touch instead of sitting out in the sun. Glad we booked this company for transport to Gili T.

We had an awesome day. our driver Komang Agus, was super nice. he knew all the cool places and even the best spots to shoot Fotos. I can absolutely recommend this, we had such a wonderful day, especially because Komang told us so much about the Balinese culture and he was so funny too :)

We had an amazing day full of adventures, Komand was our guide and was very knowledgable and considerate and looked after us throughout the day. Our most favourite part of the day was canyoning, it was very physical but so much fun. We enjoyed every moment of this trip.

Driver was super communicative and helpful. Easy for me to find when exiting airport. It was a long drive from there to the other side of Bali and it was pleasant.

Kuya Etok was really nice and acommodating. He was on time. Very helpful and took care of us. Very safe driver too!
