From Bali: Private 3-Day Gili Islands Tour with Snorkeling
- Pickup available
- Duration: 3 days
I went on this trekking tour with my family of five. The waterfalls were very enjoyable. In the first one I stood under it (not under the heaviest part!) and enjoyed a heavy cold shower. In the second one (the main, bigger one), I was amazed to find a perfect circular rainbow in the spray underneath it, a few metres wide. In terms of the organisation, there were some problems. After we'd been waiting to be picked up for 20 minutes, I called the local partner and was told they had no knowledge of my booking. I called GyG and it was sorted out, but it meant that we left an hour and a half late. Our driver was helpful and friendly, and the guide who took us on the waterfall tour was also helpful and friendly. But to be honest the cost of a local guide plus a driver would have been a lot cheaper than the total price for this trek, if we'd just booked them locally. We didn't have time for the village part of the tour, but that was fine.
We were starting in a villa 30 mins from town so we had to pay extra transport charge but only found out about this after booking the tour. I was able to agree via email beforehand if we could pay transport on the day which was fine. The first island was where we snorkelled and there were so many fish. Such a shame about the pollution. The second island we had lunch and final island we took some great photos and swam.
From the pick up to the drop off this was our stand-out highlight of our trip to Bali and Lombok!! Our guide Ronnie was so friendly and professional and helped my wife who was a little apprehensive as a first time snokeller but after 10 minutes she was away and he helped guide her around.
Great tour, everything was well organized and on time. They picked us up from our hotel and took to the port. Boat ride was very calm, but I assume this depends on weather conditions. Hotel in Gili Air was very nice, and we really enjoyed snorkling tour, so much wild life to see there.
we had a very good day, our guide Uji was super friendly, knew very much about lombok & the culture and was happy to answer all our questions. He also asked if there was anything specific we wanted to see and was happy to customise the tour. Also great music on the drive!
