From Bali: Private 3-Day Gili Islands Tour with Snorkeling

1. From Bali: Private 3-Day Gili Islands Tour with Snorkeling

In between Bali and Lombok, 3 idyllic islands can be found: Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air. These little coral islands have a real laid-back tropical island feel and make perfectly placed hideouts from the hustle and bustle of the mainland. With no traffic and nothing but fresh ocean breeze, this 3-day 2-night tour takes you to see two of these islands for an excursion full of relaxation, and special moments to remember for a lifetime. Your first day starts with a 7:00 AM pick-up from your hotel in Bali, which will take you to the Patagonia Express, a speedboat that will arrive at Gili Trawangan in just a few hours’ time. On the way, catch breathtaking views of Mount Agung and the deep blue sea. Once on the island, spend the day relaxing at a beautiful tropical island resort – lounge by the pool, dive in the sea or hop on a bicycle to explore the coastline. Don’t miss the sunset at one of the beach clubs – it’s a true spectacle of nature you don’t want to miss out on! Your second day features a private snorkeling tour on Gili Trawangan’s quieter but equally beautiful sister island, Gili Air. The 3-hour snorkeling tour takes you to see several amazing spots, beautiful coral reefs and colorful marine life. You’ll also get to swim with giant sea turtles, a magical experience! Spend the rest of the day as you like at another tropical resort – sipping cocktails, swimming, sunbathing – before another magnificent island sunset kicks in. If you’re an early bird, start day 3 early to catch the awe-inspiring sunrise of Gili Air. Otherwise, snoozing in bed to the sound of the sea is a lovely way to spend the first hours of your last morning on the Gili Islands. Enjoy one more swim in the turquoise sea, sit down for breakfast and say goodbye to these gorgeous islands. The Patagonia Express boat will bring you back to the mainland of Bali where you will be transported to your hotel by shuttle bus.

The booking was very easy, Krisna who organizes my tour was very helpful. I booked it only one day in advance, but The Seven Holiday made it possible for me to go the next day. The tour itself was great, the Gilis are a must see if you are nearby. No traffic (only bicycles and horses), clear water, silence beaches and a fun nightlife (many opportunities to meet new people). My pick up in the morning was on time at my hotel, the speed boat was exiting. The snorkeling tour was amazing, there are a lot of different fish, beautiful coral riffs and I even saw two turtles. The whole time I could reach Krisna from The Seven Holiday by WhatsApp, what I appreciated a lot. I would highly recommend the tour and The Seven Holiday and would definitely book with them again. Thank you very much!

This was a nice trip. South Gilis are much nicer comparing to North ones, less crowded. Our guide was competent and with good English. We enjoyed out trip and can recommend it to anyone.

Such a cute place. Super friendly and knowledgeable staff. The animals were well cared for and looked healthy too.

Anton our guide was fabulous, very helpful and knowledgeable. Brilliant day

Really well organised trip with great support would recommend
