Tour operator opinions please...

Hello there everyone. We are planning a tour of Flores and Komodo in July this year and we have had contact with 2 tour operators that can do our trip in full.

Does anyone know or used "Flores adventure tours" or their sister company "Komodo Flores tours"?

They specialize in volcano trekking and that is why we are wanting to use them, as well as to see the dragons of course....

Any opinions would be great and even better, other recommendations?

Thanks again and look forward to your replies.

Hi jeff.

I never hear about good for volcano trekking. I have friend in Flores he specialist for volcano adventure in flores. but I lost the phone number. name is Heri. he can speak french also

I ever visit some Volcano in flores some year ago if you want to climb Mt Egon, please come to Wodong bungalow, some of people there can arrange days trip to Mt egon. for others volcano eg. Mt ebulobo, ineria.. you can do by your self.

In Bajawa, don't miss trek to wao muda Volcano. it's very beatifull with small color lake.

Thanks for the advice guys and for the suggestions. We have decided to give the original mentioned operator a try and see how we go. Tell you the truth it does not matter who takes us up to the volcanoes....I am terrified of heights so either way I will be in to much in shock I guess to care!!! ha ha ha....

Seriously though, we just have to bite the bullet and take a chance on this one since it appears that the whole infrastructure in Flores is still underdeveloped for tours of this kind.

I will post my findings never the less upon our return.

Cheers

Hi,

I am looking forward to hearing which tour you took. We are in the process of booking trip to Flores/Komodo. Our two choices (there are 15 of us - 4 families!) are a private charter via Perama tours one way and fly back, or one with Jeffrey Buana. Both similar prices. I am wondering which boat will be better comfort wise. Both companies seem well regarded. So let us know. My husband is keen to see an active volcano too.

Thanks Louise.

Hi Everyone. Could someone who has used Jeffrey Buana as a guide let me know more about him and the tour? I am potentially booking a tour with him and want to make sure he is legit.

Thanks!

Hi, there

if you want to using a Private guide for tour, the important think is you Must Know where is Address, email, Mobile Phone, Testimony or some of tourist ever used before!
