Andrea and Anika
Thank you very much – we had a wonderful trip to Komodo.
We have thought about pros and cons of the trip.
– The food was absolutely great. Delicious, and nobody got sick.
– The trip was very well organised.
– We felt welcome from the start and there was a good spirit at the boat.
– You where very well prepared with first aid kit at the trekking with the ranger.
– Andrea had a very good time snorkelling with the captain (around the island haha)
We arrived safely back home last night after a very enjoyable weekend.
I wanted to quickly say thanks for everything you did to help organize our trip. It was an incredibly memorable experience. Afri also did a terrific job of organizing the logistics and ensuring that we were always comfortable. He was very knowledgable about Komodo and was able to answer all of our questions. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Hopefully I will find my way back there again someday.
All the best,
My wife and I had took a three-day boat tour to the islands of Rinca and Komodo with KOMODOTOURSADVENTURE in June. We had a wonderful time. Our boat was comfortable and it was a real pleasure to relax on the deck and watch the magnificent scenery go by. Our guide, Arman, and the captain and crew were very pleasant and professional. We felt we were in good hands. On our first day we visited Rinca Island and saw many komodo dragons. The second day we traveled to Komodo Island and saw even more dragons–bigger too. We also went snorkeling at Pink Beach, on Komodo.
The sea life there is quite stunning. Off the coast of Flores Island that night we watched millions of bats fill the sky as part of their nightly exodus. We returned to Labuan Bajo on the third day and flew back to Bali.
Komodo National Park encompasses a vast area of ocean and uninhabited islands. Traveling through this magnificent area with Arman was an exceptional experience. He is an excellent guide and we thoroughly enjoyed his company. Both and he and Hendrick are highly professional and very considerate of their clients. Hendrick was immensely helpful in planning our trip. He even arranged our plane tickets for the flight to and from Bali. All aspects of the trip were handled wonderfully.
KOMODOTOURSADVENTURE provides excellent tours of Komodo National Park. I highly recommend Arman and Hendrick to anyone contemplating a trip to that part of the world.
We are a Belgian family who have just returned from Indonesia where we had the pleasure to do a 6 day Flores overland tour from Maumere to Labuanbajo with Arman and his driver Deus.
The trip started in Maumere and we stayed in Moni (Kelimutu), Riung, Bajawa, Ruteng and Labuanbajo. Along the way we visited traditional villages, beaches (including a day of snorkeling in Riung 17 Islands marine park), a hot spring, the cave of the homo Floriensis, churches, an arak distillery, spider web rice fields, and much more. Along the way we saw some spectacular sceneries and mountain roads to remember.
Arman realy knows the history and culture of the land very well and explains it with professionalism. Deus was the perfect driver who drives as safe and comfortable as the Flores roads allow.
We experienced a great variation of nature, culture, religion and food. Next to that we also had great fun during the long hours driving where Arman entertained us with his jokes. The accomodation during the trip was very good and met our expectations.
When we planned the trip earlier this year, the communication was very good and they were very flexible to adapt the schedule according to our requests. We can surely recommend these guys.
Selamat tinggal & sampai jumpa lagi Leo, Gina & Randy PS. They like Bintang, “lekker kontje” and m(i)e
I enjoyed a wonderful experience with the Komodo Island Adventures tour group. I was greeted at Labuan Bajo airport and then taken to the port to board my ship. My tour guide was Iren. He is a local with a wealth of knowledge about Flores, Komodo, and the surrounding islands.
My tour lasted for 3 days and 2 nights. On the first day we visited Rinca, and this is where we saw the majority of the dragons. We saw 9 in total, ranging from a baby (maybe 2 years old) to a big male, that the guide said was over 40 years old! That night we anchored the boat in a protected cove and I got to see a magnificent sunset and watch masses of fruit bats come home for the night.
Then next day was an early start, and we arrived at Komodo Island at 8am. We walked around the island for 2 hours and we were lucky enough to see 3 dragons. We then headed to the Pink Peach where I was able snorkel. I saw a wide range of exotic corals and tropical fish. After that we headed for Manta Point. The guide warned me that July isn’t the peak season to spot manta rays, but I was super lucky and saw 3 (one was over 2.5 meters wide). That was the highlight of my trip!
The boat met my needs, and both the driver and cook were excellent. Komodo Island Adventures is a professionally run tour group. Their prices are very competitive and the communication while organizing the tour was very prompt and detailed. I have already recommended Komodo Island Adventures to my friends and family!
