Did the tour with a friend in October as a private tour. We had a great guide, Sylvester, who showed us around the Islands. In addition to the guide the boat had a crew of 4 which took good care of all practicalliteis around the boat. Food was traditional indonesian food and was very good. The boat was basic standard but all you need for this kind of trip. We saw Komodos on both Rinca and Komodo Isaland. Komodo had a more rich wild life and here we could also see a lot of birds. In addition to the trecks we did a lot of sorkeling at the amazing reefs around Komodo Islands.
We had an unforgettable trip going on an overnight tour with Komodo trekkers. From start to finish, the customer service was excellent and the owner/guide were both very professional and attentive. The first day, we went snorkeling several times in various spots around the islands about an hour and a half to two hours from Labuan Bajo. At one spot, we saw over a dozen turtles, one was by far the hugest turtle I’ve ever seen! Even the guide mentioned that he had not seen a turtle of that size. We didn’t see any manta-rays, but we attempted a short snorkel to look for them. The food on board was really good and plentiful...they accommodated to our mostly vegetarian family with fish added. The rooms on the boat were basic and clean with bunk beds and one toilet adjacent to the rooms. We set off early the next morning to Padar island for sunrise and then rose the boat about an hour to Rinca Island to see the Komodo dragons. Right away, we spotted about 8-10 of them, mostly around the local kitchen as they were waiting for food. We only saw one on our hour long trek thru the dry walking path. Apparently, between 11-3 is when they are resting, when he was during the time that we were there. On the way back, we stopped at one last beach which had a beautiful sandy atoll and views of the islands. Highly recommend this company!
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time exploring the islands around komodo. We took a 3D2N private trip and this part of our vacation was far and away the best experience in Indonesia. Our boat was clean and comfortable, the cabins were equipped with AC and there was a beautiful deck with chairs and cushions. The entire trip went as smoothly as it possibly could have for which we must give thanks to our amazing guide Louis and his caring and attentive crew who did everything to ensure our experience was memorable. They really went above and beyond our expectations.
Louis is a super smart guy, he was always by our side explaining interesting things about Flores history and their fascinating culture. Moreover he is a very talented photographer and took some great pictures of us... definitely the best shots of our entire trip :D
The boat crew was very friendly and our cook Bunda spoiled us with the best Indonesian dishes from breakfast to dinner. We will never forget the tasty fried bananas she used to prepare after our Snorkling sessions!
The time we had was wonderful, from the reefs to the hikes on the islands, to watching the sun setting with thousand fruit bats flying over our heads.
I can’t emphasize enough how amazing it was, this is an experience we will truly remember for a lifetime.
We had an amazing experience in our boat trip with Komodo Trekker. We chose the 3D/2N trip and during those days we saw beautiful landscape views, islands and animals. We enjoyed
a lot snorkeling surrounded by stunning corals, turtles, star fishes and a huge variaty of beautiful fishes as Fancy, our local guide, lead us really well during all the snorkeling and trekking sessions.The boat crew was really nice with us and they took care of us very well. It was easy and straightforward to book the trip with them as they were very professional and thoughtful. We strongly recommend this trip. It was the best part of our trip to Indonesia.
The guide is really nice and very interactive. He makes sure everything is clear. I am on a business trip but it's like a leisure trip..
