We've used the service from the company a couple of days ago. No, that's not right there was NO SERVICE at all. NO organization. They made a hundred people standing under the sun for two hours before you can get in. The boat arrived 1 hour late according to the schedule. The staff doesn't speak English. Keep saying "yeah, later,... More

Our journey over to the gili islands were pretty smooth, although leaving all our bags/suitcases out in the rain while they waited to load them on the boat was a little bit annoying, we got over it! Our journey back to Bali was what I could only describe as a nightmare. I have never feared for my life so much.... More

Very disappointing. The way to Gili from Kuta was okay, but when we wanted to came back, they said there are no fastboats, only public ferry. Our whole day was ruined with the long trip and when we arrived to Padang Bai, there was no transfer back to Kuta. They took our tickets away in Lombok, and without tickets the... More

Was picked up on time in a new clean and comfortable van. Arrived early to Padang Bai. Checked in no problem and waited for about a half hour before we boarded. Boat was a bit warm but to be expected as it's Bali. Staff were helpful and friendly. Go upstairs on the boat if you want a nice breeze and... More

You get screwed on the transfers and they will take your tickets, tell you they will give them back and then hurry you onto the next shuttle or boat without giving you your tickets back. You are then forced to spend more money on transports to the next town or city. Absolute scam and they do it everyday. The cab... More

Stumbled on these reviews and I'm quite shocked at how bad people thought this quick boat ride was. My experience was much much less painful than everyone is making it sound. Ticket price from ubud to gili islands and back for 3 was very cheap. Ride there and back - both quick (I think we were lucky with perfect weather... More

We booked in advance and paid 600,000 each for two passengers. The whole booking system is a farce, staff aggressive and rude and we just about made it in one piece back to Bali. We were promised transfers from our hotel to the boat and the same on the return journey. The transfer there was late, and the check in... More

Save yourself a lot of annoyance and go with another tour company, we got the 10:30 boat from Gili T, we were told the boat transfer to Padang would take 1.5 hours and from there an hour to the airport. Three and a half hours later we arrive at Padang where we are met by the shuttle bus drivers who... More
