Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We had a wonderful time on this tour within Komodo national park. Everything was organized well and the staff were friendly, patient, and took lovely photos & videos for people that wanted it. It starts early but it’s better that way since you avoid the crowds and climb to the viewpoint earlier in the day (it gets hot quick). Seeing manta rays and turtles while snorkelling was definitely the highlight for me!

    This was an absolute highlight from our month long trip to Indonesia.

    We started with a three day boat trip around Komodo with our amazing guide Ryann (Ary).

    Ryann provided us with great history of the area, the islands and most importantly the people.

    We enjoyed the trip so much that we booked with Ryann again a few days later to take us to Way Rebo Village hiking high into the mountains and staying overnight with the locals who live there.

    An amazing, immersive, local experience. We stopped at many places and collages that Ryann is familiar with and even harvested f
    Some coconut and mango from his family’s trees.

    Great English speaker and if you want to experience Labuan Bajo from a local, non-tourist perspective this is the trip.

    I was apprehensive about this trip. Solo female traveller not keen on boats. Overall I enjoyed it. But the constant noise of the generator was pretty annoying. The trip to see dragons was cool but sooo many people and you get literally minutes with the dragons before your moved on. The snorkeling was pretty amazing. Saw turtles and manta rays. Lot of the coral is dying though.
    Guides give next to no guidance. Nothing is really explained. No care is given.. no questions on if you can swim or how you should treat the environment. Plastic bottles given out each day.
    We lost our steering one evening, staff running all over the place. I had to share cabin with another male traveller. I did enjoy mostly. Food was basic but good..

    Long day, busy day, but ticking a number of boxes on the bucket list. First trip to Indonesia and really wanted to see the amazing Komodo Dragons. Not disappointed, saw about 10 in the National Park. Even better for me on the day, was the snorkelling with 6 or 7 giant Manta Ray, just wish I had an underwater camera. Great memories and stunning scenery. Fantastic coral reefs, teeming with life, at several snorkelling stops that day. Great trip.

    This tour operator took care of us very well. There were several other operators running the same tour itinerary at the same time and this company made sure we were in & out of each location ahead of the groups making it a far better experience for our group by avoiding the crowds. The snorkeling was epic; beautiful coral teeming with sea life. We had very close encounters with sea turtles and manta rays. There were even about six whale sharks but we weren't lucky enough to get close to them. There were 4 tour guides with our group of about 12 trekkers. Given this one to three ratio they were over-top helpful. I highly recommend this bucket-list tour.

    It was one of the best experience for us.
    We booked a private speedboat for our family (6 adults and 5 kids).
    They provided complimentary snacks and enough drinks and snorkeling equipment for the kids as well. So only thing you need is a towel.
    The guide was very kind. He supported my child (3 years old) to the top of Padar Island. and took care of him during the snorkeling.
    We saw komodo dragons and manta rays closely.
    Beautiful scenery, beaches, crystal clear waters,,, everything was amazing beyond description.
    Highly recommended.

    This is my first to Rangko Cave. It's a beautiful limestone cave with crystal clear water where you can swim and enjoy the cool water.

    Me and my wife (USA) have been traveling for 4 months and this 3 day 2 night boat trip was the highlight for me. Bit of a splurge for a backpackers budget but well worth the money for all of the amazing experiences. We saw HUGE manta rays, turtles, Komodo dragons, flying fox bats, and all sorts of fish.

    Our guide, Rian, was very helpful and helped cater the experience so that we avoided big crowds and got the most value for our money. The crew was also very accommodating despite language barriers. Food was fresh and tasty!

    The boat itself wasn't anything too fancy, so if you go in expecting a luxury cruise ship you'll be disappointed. That being said, our bed was comfortable, the A/C worked, all necessities were present, and the experience still felt like a real treat! If you're not picky, you'll love it I promise!

    Words of advice:

    1. Entrance fees came out to around 750k IDR per person and are not included so factor that as you will.

    2. On komodo island there are two accessible locations: the komodo national park & komodo village. Komodo village has a cheaper entrance fee, smaller crowds, dragons that actually move around (not sleepy), and a glimpse at a local community. I'd recommend asking your guide to skip the national park and only go to the komodo village. It's a much better experience in my opinion.

    3. BYOB, they don't serve alcohol on board.

    From my first interaction with them, the support and responsiveness were outstanding. The trip itself was fantastic, with a wonderful crew from KLM Jofiel. Special thanks to Stephanie and Abi from the Bale Laut Tour team for making our trip effortless and memorable.

    The whole experience was fantastic. Our guides Irwin and Alfred were very organised and made sure we all had the best time and were looked after throughout. The food was great, the accommodation was faultless. All the crew were great. I would highly recommend this trip.
