        Recommended Way to Gili T
        On the whole, a great way to get to Gili T. You are well looked after from start to finish with your bags taken care of as soon as you arrive. Relatively comfortable inside and you are given the opportunity to sit on the outside roof area, with drinks and snacks available for purchase. The only reason I have not put 5 stars is that it was late both ways when we travelled.

        Recommend every time
        Totally excellent. Handled so well and professionally from pickup in Ubud to drop off in Gili Air we didn’t touch luggage. Water given as we got on. Not crazy crowded. Comfy seats and excellent AC.

        Uluwatu Sunset Kecak Dance & Jimbaran Seafood Dinner
        First, the driver and the tour guide were both Great! BUT the sunset dinner was absolutely horrible, and I believe it was planned! I don’t know if it was planned by the owner or the restaurant. Here’s why: 1. The lobster was super dry and you had to scrape it from the shell with your fork, which was a daunting and extremely messy task to say the least. 2. The fish was EXTREMELY boney. When I say extremely I mean it was the worst fish I have EVER been served in a restaurant, and there was virtually no meat!! I grew up poor and I am not fancy. I am a working class guy, so don’t think this comes from a place of arrogance. I just have never been served such a horrible meal in a restaurant! Never! 3. THERE’S NO WAY that restaurant serves anything like the food they gave us to local people!!! NO WAY or they would be out of business. They chose to give us what appeared to be overcooked boney scraps because either the tour company gave them a spending limit or the restaurant did it behind the tour company’s back. I personally believe it’s the former. I can’t imagine any business would serve that crap to customers! However, I still gave the server a really good tip. Again, the driver and the tour guide were great, but the dinner was an absolute rip off. If you are looking for a good dinning experience, I would avoid this tour with this company. I’ve been on food tours in multiple cities in the United States, Mexico, Malaysia, and Costa Rica. This was the absolute worst food I’ve ever had! Buyer Beware!

        Waste of time and money !
        Just returned from visiting upside down world with my husband and grand daughter.. What a complete and utter waste of money, $25 entrance fee and if you walked really slowly it would take you 5 minutes to go thru the whole experience. Dont waste you money or time, its just a load of crappy furniture screwed to the ceilings.

        Just ok
        Ok and got some good photos. Admission cost expensive for what you get at 100000 per adult. Is a bit out of the way but other things nearby if you combine the trip

        A fun family adventure with a slight twist!
        The light show at the entrance was amazing and my kids absolutely loved it. My son and I took the roller coaster which was terrifying in a good way as well as the rapids ride. Frank's house was very strange and they did well to jump scare us while we were in there. Unfortunately my three year old was so shocked she jumped on my wife and ended up hurting her back! Funny on hindsight but not so great when your back has a twinge. But overall a positive and fun experience.

        Give it a miss...
        The venue was run down with very little visible maintenance. Everything felt dirty, from entering off the street to going through the facility. The rest rooms were disgusting with some functions inaccessible and urine all over the seat, no soap, and no sanitiser. At the end of the 20-minute walk through, we did walk away with some great photos, which was the only positive part of the experience. Also, on the online booking, we were only able to book for 4 adults. On arrival, THEY pointed out that we were 2 adults, 2 children, and children were only 50k each. I explained that booking process did not offer children @ 50k. They refused the 100k refund with a guilty chuckle saying we should have paid at the venue rather than online! After visiting the mens room on our way out, I pointed out that there was no soap or handwash or sanitiser in the men's room. They smiled and said Yes. Lol, what a crock. Photos were good, though. Won't be going back.

        Ten out ten experience
        Perfect crossing to Gili M, on time and straight forward. Air conditioned and comfortable. My pick up went perfectly, with Aristana being on time, polite, professionally dressed and safe driving. Highly recommend

        Do not buy
        Denied refund by East Indonesia Tours. I cancelled these tickets with 3 weeks notice and was still denied a refund. Tripadvisor have also not allowed me to get a refund. Do not buy these - you can get them cheaper at the park anyway.

        Huge potential- but poor info and communication. Still worth the time and money.
        Highlights were food, kind staff, the amazing bats flying over the boat, and of course, the Komodo Dragons. Downside was poor scheduling info (we were told we would be done in time to get a certain flight, but in truth, there was no way it could be done and it cost us a ton to get a private taxi boat back to the airport. We tried for hours to change our flight (had paid extra for flexible option) but did not hear back from nor were we given any option to reschedule by Batik Air. Bad karma!

        Amazing performance
        The dance was very entertaining and unique. I was with my friend and his wife. The show was very beautiful and my guide was able to teach me many things about the Indonesian culture. Dance was like nothing I have ever seen before and I highly recommend this for people that want to learn about cultures around the world.
