    My partner and I loved our 5D/4N trip!! We saw so many mantas, turtles, sharks and beautiful coral reefs. Our snorkel and dive guides, Erik and Yetno, were exceptional and the briefings were super detailed. There was a good mix of activities with 15 dives (12 snorkels) and multiple island and beach visits including the Komodo Dragon trek on Rinca Island. The Sokaraja team were incredibly accommodating and friendly throughout the entire booking process & onboard. There was always plenty of food, catering well to my dietary requirements. One thing to be aware of is that quite a lot of the crew smoke and the smell can be a bit hard to escape at times - especially if you're not used to being around smokers. Otherwise wonderful diving, snorkelling, good food and good company - highly recommend!

    Just returned from our 4 days and 3 nights of cruising around the Islands on the Situju Tuju and am missing the Island visits and snorkelling already, I’ve never seen such aquatic beauty before….Mantas, turtles, Reef Sharks, big fish, little fish, fish of millions of colours….and the Coral….Wow, every snorkelling site was just amazingly, even saw a solitary Dolphin and Flying fish.
    It helped having an experienced Diver as a guide #vhygimola ….he knew where to find everything.
    Watching the Fruit Bats head for the main island at Dusk was a really cool sight to see.
    And an absolute highlight was the visit to The Loh Liang Kimono Notional Park, it’s an absolute must….nearest living thing to a Dinosaur, and when the Park Ranger takes your photo you’ll see how near I mean😂😂😂
    Oh yes, a big plus was having the boat all to ourselves, but it usually holds 8 to 10 passengers comfortably.
    Although many island cruises cater for diving, these guys cater for both divers and recreational guests, and it’s just the odd guest who may dive and not a boat load, so the day’s itinerary is fully loaded for fun for all.
    The food was an absolute delight and always hot, extremely tasty and beautifully presented…..as well as big portions....A big compliment to the ships chef.
    Our cabin was made up every morning and late afternoon by the cabin steward while we were out on tours which made the stay even more pleasant.
    The whole crew are always happy and extremely friendly and helpful, from the Captain, (Nothing like Jack Sparrow), to the ship’s engineer, everyone of them always had a smile and a polite greeting for us😎
    The ships Tender Pilot who ferried us everywhere for island visits and snorkelling was always attentive and had the most infectious laugh you can imagine.
    Whilst the ship itself may need a little more love and tender care to bring it back to its original beauty, it is nevertheless quite an authentic boat to cruise on and reasonably pleasing to the eye………..We didn’t expect a luxury cruise boat, but with this ship, the crew go out their way to make your stay on board both pleasant and memorable…bring its own bit of luxury with it…..Oh I forgot to thank our guide, Vhygi, for getting me up to the top of Palou Kelor Island……and back down….The views are Incredibly amazing😎…The hike up to the top I’ll leave for you to find out yourself 😎

    Just a trip organised a brilliant tour for us on the lexxy boat. The crew were brilliant, food was delicious and the itinerary was perfect. Most of the spots they take you too are so beautiful they don’t even seem real. Thank you so much for an unforgettable trip

    Booked a 1-day open trip and it was great! This is my first time at Bajo and I'd say their service is worth the price. The boat we were in was solid! It had AC, quite spacious too (especially on the front & upper deck), and the free flow of snacks helped to fuel ourselves - I didn't have to eat the snack I brought. The guides were professionals (I fear the waters and yet I still snorkel 2x) and quite dependable. Plus point, one of the guides took pretty pics with nice angles!

    However, a little note, the on-ground guides and the travel agency need to be more communicative with foreign travelers. I just found out that our lunch have options (chicken/fish/vegetarian) on D-day - it wasn't communicated when I booked. While I was okay with it (since I don't have any allergies), another family complained as they had preferences and were only told that it'd be "Indonesian food" without further description.

    The on-ground lead guide also had a little trouble while collecting money for the island entry ticket (Padar & Komodo). It was stated clearly when I booked, that this trip exclude the island entry ticket, so I was prepared. But the foreigners seemed to be not aware of it, as some of them booked through another 3rd party/local guide, and the on-ground guide couldn't communicate it clearly. When I helped to explain that the entry ticket is separate, they were okay with it. So, foreign tourists don't mind paying as long as the guide/agency can communicate clearly what they're paying for.

    There was also a bit of a mishap, where one tourist from my boat was left behind. I guess the guide missed the headcount, so they didn't realize he had not come back to the boat until they received a call from another boat that was still on the island. I guess both parties took part in the accident, the guide missed the headcount and the tourist snorkeled without being aware of the timeframe given.

    From my view, this is an understandable human error, and as a tourist, we need to also watch for ourselves. The lead guide explained that the boats always travel in groups, so when one tourist from group 1 got left behind accidentally, they can always get a lift from another boat/group. But if you're the only boat on the island when you travel, then please watch for yourselves, bc when I traveled there were lots of other boats & groups.

    Also, please don't expect to have the trip to be exactly as described in the brochure. We're visiting nature, and a lot of things can happen (i.e. rain, mating season). In my trip, I wasn't able to snorkel with Manta bc they're in mating season, so they go down deep. It was also mating season for the komodos, so no guarantee that we'd see one along the walk around the island - but luckily we spotted some.

    Overall, I'd still highly recommend this agency for those who are traveling to Bajo for the first time and want to experience multiple destinations at once while still enjoying every destination!

    A once in a lifetime adventure was beautifully curated by the Wisataku Flores team! From our hotel pickup until we said goodbye, we were well taken care of. I can't say enough about the tour! We saw four Komodo dragons and learned much about their habitat and their habits. The snorkeling Manta Bay was a little rough with few rays, but you can't control sealife! The sandbar was particularly delightful! We were the oldest people on the tour, and they took special care to assure we enjoyed everything without overtaxing ourselves. I can't recommend this tour enough. Don't hesitate, book it!

    We had a 4days/3nights tour around West Sumba and we really loved it!
    In several words : wonderful experiences and breathtaking landscapes...
    The organisation was great, the guide super kind and he could manage perfectly the timing and itinerary so we could see all the spots we wanted to during the trip.
    A big thank you to Waturanda trip for those great memories and this amazing time we had in Sumba!
    We would a 100% recommend this travel company.
    The culture, beauty and people of Sumba will stay in our mind forever...
    We will definitely come back

    We were so fortunate that we got to spend two blissful nights on board this floating boutique boat-el!
    My fiancé and I had just finished a grueling 27-hour commute from Mataram to Labuan Bajo, and it was just a treat to be the only ones there! We couldn’t shake the feeling that we had already spent the perfect honeymoon accommodation and we haven’t even had a wedding!
    Fina, Captain Al Nasid and the rest of the crew were so warm and helpful. There’s always a smile on their faces :)
    The room we booked was Sumba and it was just stunning—dark wood with black iron panels. Warm lighting for lamps and ceiling side lightings, there’s also bright white lighting for practical purposes. The double bed was so comfortable and the pillows were divine! We slept straight out during our stay there, it was difficult to get up as we got so cozy in the bed!
    The linens and towels smelled great. Actually our room and the whole of the boat always smelled great!
    The Indonesian breakfast was just scrumptious! We had our fill of mie goreng and local fruits for breaky—hearty breaky!
    And really just hanging out there on the water, a dingy boat ride away from the hectic (and trashy) port of Labuan Bajo was just the perfect getaway. We spent the nights up on the top deck gazing at the stars and the village lights. A real romantic place to be :>
