Would recommend to anyone traveling to Indonesia. Very much worth it. Booked for two people and the boat was perfect for us. The boat crew was always attentive and giving us delicious snacks, juices, and food. Sometimes too much food, which is not too bad problem of a problem to have. There was a place to sit in a shaded area and a place to recline under the warm sun. The water and hikes were pristine. After sweating in a hike, we were able to take a dip in the cool water. We were able to see Komodo dragons, bats, birds, deers, and many colorful fish. We were not lucky to see the mantas, but that’s ok, the snorkeling was still amazing. The hotel was nice and big with a nice view of the beach. Clean but beware of mosquitos, which was the case for the whole tour. Remember to bring your mosquito repellent. Overall great experience. Our guide went this us everywhere we went and was also very attentive and gave us great history and information.

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.

guide was excellent. boat crew were excellent. the tour itself and the destinations were excellent. we were well catered for and very well looked after. however the boat facilities we had were substandard for the price of the trip.
