The tour through Flores Pristine has been the best part of our holiday to Bali & the surrounding islands. The communication via Arthur from our initial queries about the tour through to our collection from the Labuan Bajo airport was excellent. Deposit & payment was painless via PayPal & on reflection definitely value for money. The tour in quick summary included seeing swarms of flying foxes on our first evening. Hiking in the early morning to see the sunrise. Visiting Komodo National Park where we were lucky to see many dragons both adult & young. We also went snorkeling with Manta Rays & on an amazing coral reef on our last morning. Our guide Ryan was brilliant & friendly & made sure we had the best time. It was also nice hearing about all the family customs & culture which is so different to what we are used to in England. The boat crew were great & very friendly. The food they cooked us while on the boat was traditional & so tasty!! Arthur, Ryan & the boat crew also had to put up with us unfortunately having to change pick up & drop off times due to our airline changing the flight schedules at the last minute!!! A pain & a bit stressful for us but they were hugely understanding. We'd definitely recommend these guys if you want a tour, they were brilliant. If we come back, we'll definitely use them again.

We booked a itinerary 5d4n Flores overland and sea package with Flores Pristine. The itinerary was slightly customised to fit our interest and Arthur was relatively accommodating to it. Our guide,Eddie,was responsible and professional - taking good care of us who are first-time snorkellers- ensuring both safety and encouraging us to take the plunge and have fun. The boat crew was also very professional and nice - trying their best to keep the boat clean and comfortable for our stay. Accommodation overland was great and up to standard too.

We recently booked a tour with Flores Pristine, after finding them through Tripadvisor. Arthur was very helpful with providing us with all the information we needed in order to make the decision to book with them. We booked a 2 day/1 night boat trip for the three of us, including a 8 year old. Our experience with Joseph, the guide and the crew on the boat were super friendly, and we felt comfortable as soon as we met them. Joseph provided us with details as to what we would expect on our adventure, and ensured that we were enjoying the experience. We encountered a situation that was not the fault of anyone, and the way that Joseph and Arthur handled it, was extremely professional. We felt that they had our best interest at heart. We saw some amazing Komodo dragons, explored various islands and were lucky enough to see some cool fish while snorkeling. We would recommend Flores Pristine, and be sure to ask for Joseph, he was awesome!

A wonderful 3 day live-aboard boat tour Didn't even know where to begin when I was looking for tours to Komodo National Park (and was skeptical about some websites I saw), but thankfully found reviews on Flores Pristine Tours on Tripadvisor and so decided to try them out. Arthur was great from the get-go—quick to reply, very informative and super patient with my queries and last minute changes. He coordinated everything, arranging for a boat (and crew) as well as a tour guide. The schedule can be tailored to accommodate what you want to do. We found it contained a good variety of activities—island hopping, hiking (x3), beach time, snorkelling (x4), chill time on the boat—and wasn't too packed. Three of us booked a private 3 day-2 night live-aboard boat tour around Komodo National Park. Our boat could actually sleep 6 and had all the basic amenities one would need. The pictures supplied by Arthur were very helpful in getting us mentally prepared for what to expect. Our tour guide, Alex, was wonderful. Learnt a lot about Flores and Indonesia from him. He took us everywhere and hiked all the hills and swam in all the reefs with us too; making sure we were safe, weren't swept away by the currents, and spotted all the sea life the reefs had to offer. The rest of the crew—captain, cook and deckhand—were really friendly (we couldn't speak to them cause of the language barrier but they were always all smiles), efficient and helpful. The food was great—quantity, quality and variety—thanks to the chef Ardi! We were well fed— chicken, vege, soup, egg, calamari, prawns, fish, eggplant, tofu. Heads up to the more cautious people, the practice is to collect the payment a day before the trip (if you arrive at Labuan Bajo that early) so they can buy provisions. So don't be alarmed. No complaints! Our only feedback would be for them to conduct a safety briefing about the boat before setting off, and there was one beach where there were tiny jellyfish that stung (harmless but you feel it) so a heads-up from the guide would have been helpful :) Thank you everyone for a great experience! We had an amazing time :)

Great swift response, professional and well organised. Not cheap but is on par with other services in the area.
