Fabulous time, with a lot of unexpected surprises.

I had a great time on my tour. FIrst the tour organizer was absolutely amazing in keeping with contact with me. I never had an organizer text me that the driver was literally outside my door waiting for me. All was semless. My guide, Anzi was fabulous. Not only was he knowledgeable about the dragons and area (frequently adding to the komodo guides in more depth), he also was so excited about things, it made e excited. When we weren't able to see manta rays because I arrived unexpectedly late in the day, it disappointed him. The snorkeling was fantastic, and a good cool off in between dragons. The food was the best I had in Indonesia, which is really saying something, considering it was made on a small swaying boat. Also, the hotel I stayed in on the second night was great, relaxing, and just what I needed. Overall, a really great, exciting yet relaxing trip. Only negative- on the boat I was on there was no toilet seat, which I understand is the norm, but can be a little cha

Such an amazing experience! Everything was so organised. James our tour guide picked us up and took us to the port where we would climb aboard the boat which we’d be staying on for the night! We both felt like pirates! It was so relaxing and we could chill on top off the roof where they had beanbags for us. We where supplied with plenty off food freshly cooked and also smoothies! We first stopped off at Rinca Island where we could see the Komodo dragons! then we climbed back onto the boat and headed to Kalong island to watch the bats fly from the cave, which there where thousands and wasn’t expecting it! On day 2 we woke up early and went to padar island which was a climb but what an amazing view you had after off the black, pink and white beaches! Then headed off to Komdo island, the pink beach and to the manta point where we went snorkelling with the manta rays! Couldn’t of asked for a better tour guide we both had Such an amazing time! Would definitely recommend!

We saw 5 Komodo’s of all sizes as well as wild boar, deer, and assorted birds. The Komodo’s were viewed quite close up with opportunity of videoing them in action. Two were eating a turtle carcass at the beach. Guides were nice and informative about the Komodos life, reproduction, hatching, and early life, diet, etc. Trails were not a challenge thought quite warm. Bathroom facilities are readily available.

It was very well planned and structured. The guide was very nice, as was the boat crew and the food was very tasty.

Everything perfect. Good bed for a ship. Great food. Everything well organized. Small deviations from the plan.
