          Komodo Dragons, the giant lizards and Manta Ray, the graceful giants of the ocean.
          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.

          Mixed experience
          I booked this trip because it appeared to give the longest time on Komodo of the many advertised. However, we were on Komodo for 90 minutes, 20+ of which were in the market. The ‘trek’ claimed to be 2.5 km but 40 minutes of slow walking does not cover that distance, especially with stops. On the plus side, we saw juvenile and adult dragons, although the latter were surrounded by tourists with guides encouraging the ‘look at me touching a Komodo dragon’ shot. The other stops were mixed: Padar has great views; pink beach has great snorkelling, as does the snorkelling stop after Komodo; Manta Point would probably be great if there were mantas, not if there are not (not complaining, as obviously these are wild animals; and the final stop was unnecessary, especially with rain coming. Staff on the boat were great and lunch, snacks and drinks were good. Overall, pleased I did it but wish there was a trip that went to Komodo only and spent a decent time there.

          A fun Pedal/Paddle/Peak!
          We really enjoyed this! Our driver Ubie (not sure if I have spelled that correctly) picked us up from our hotel in Seminyak at 7:30am and took us on the long drive up to the North Bali area. Only 60-odd kms but it took about 2 hours due to the sheer amount of traffic on the roads (and it gets pretty twisty once you get up into the hills). Once we arrived we met Eddie, our guide for the day. He explained that we'd be doing pedal-paddle-peak rather than peak-paddle-pedal, for reasons that were soon made quite obvious. The first cycling part was practically all downhill, and we're talking some extremely steep declines where we were on the brakes a lot. It would have been extremely difficult to cycle up those hills! After we got to the bottom we continued on the bikes through a lush rainforest (the off-road tyres on the bikes came in handy here) before making our way past a couple of temples and to Tamblingan lake. From there we paddled across the lake (sore arms by the end!) for a quick look at another temple, before starting our trek back up through a different part of the rainforest. Eddie pointed out different plants and trees and happily answered all of our questions as we wandered through a pristine setting, only interrupted by a few other tour groups coming past the other way. After about an hour of walking around on fairly level ground we finally started the last part of the hike, which was pretty much just going up to get back to near where we started. We emerged back onto a main road right near a restaurant where we thankfully were able to sit down and rest and had a delicious meal of chicken and rice. After lunch Ubie drove us all to the nearby waterfall where we spent 15 minutes or so taking pictures (beautiful setting), before dropping off Eddie and driving back to Seminyak. A wonderful day out seeing a different part of Bali. Things to note: - Wear comfortable shoes. Cycling and paddling parts were pretty easy but hiking up the hill was challenging in parts. There are guide ropes/structures in certain places to help but you don't want to do this in sandals/thongs. - Eat a decent breakfast beforehand, or take a snack. We got picked up at 7:30am and ate lunch at around 1pm (Eddie got us some fruit from a local seller which we ate mid-morning). You will be hungry (and sweating) by the time you finish the uphill part of the walk. - Wear sunscreen and take some water. You'll be in the shade for quite a decent part going through the rainforest areas, but you'll still see a lot of sun during the day. Eddie gave us a 600ml bottle of water each, but we went through those plus another 1L bottle between us. - Take a little cash with you. Lunch is included - and really tasty - but drinks were extra. We bought two cokes to have with lunch which was $IDR 20,000 ($AU 2.00). Also it might be nice to tip the canoe pilot/Ubie/Eddie a little something for their work over the day. - Be prepared for a long day. 2 hours in the car to get there, 6 hours of activity + lunch, 2 hours to get back to the hotel (if you are staying in Seminyak). You won't be getting back until 5pm or so.

          Great to see what Labuan Bajo has to offer
          Ok let me start by saying how helpful the team at Explorcation were. My flight was delayed so I was arriving in Labuan a day late. I whatsapped Explorcation and the without hesitation moved the date of my excursion and offered to collect us from airport, with all our luggage, done the day, then dropped us off at the hotel afterwards We started the day with a prompt collection. The tour is private so just my husband and I, a guide and a driver. Our order of schedule was slightly different to advertised. We started with a quick photo stop at the viewpoint. We next headed to batu cermin cave. You have another guide show you around the cave with fossils and history. Unfortunately, we were too early to see the mirror effect. However we still thoroughly enjoyed it as we love geology. We then get a boat over to rangok . We swam inside the lake in the cave and absolutely loved it. There were quite a few tourists when We arrived but once they left we had about 15 mins to ourselves. We then had some time on the beach and swimming in the sea. Our guide was lovely, super helpful. He never rushed us at all. We could safely leave our luggage in the car with the driver. We opted to not stop for lunch as we weren’t hungry and after 3 days of travelling wanted to go to our hotel. This was a great start to our Indonesian trip

          Island hopping
          This tour group provided transportation from and to our resort, has an amazing staff which informed about each island stop and was accomodating throughout the trip. The boat is clean and comfortable. The trip seemed lengthy though. Two of the island stops could be avoided. Instead more time could be spent snorkling at the reefs viewing various fish and sea animals.

          Memorable day on tour with Explorcation
          Such a memorable day with the Explorcation crew. The day was fun, entertaining and educational. This is one of the few tours that views dragons at the closer Rinca island rather than the more distant Komodo island. We were lucky to see multiple dragons in the wild, buffalo, deer and a wild horse. The guide on Rinca was very knowledgeable with a good sense of humour. We felt safe with main guide and a secondary to keep an extra eye out for rogue dragons. Big thanks to our main tour guide Alex who entertained, informed and coordinated the trip. Alex has the personality that can light a room!

          Amazing day, but too many people on trip
          I initially booked with Exploration, but later realized they use a third-party operator, D-Tours, for Komodo tours. Booking directly with D-Tours can save you money. However, the booking process with Exploration was straightforward. Their quick WhatsApp responses, usually within 3 minutes, made it convenient. When we faced unexpected flight delays to Labuan Bajo, they seamlessly rearranged our tours without any hassle. I messaged them on WhatsApp, explained the situation, and they promptly responded with, "No worries, this has been sorted," which greatly eased my stressful situation. I selected this tour based on its advertised group size of 25, which stood out from the other options. However, upon arrival, I was disappointed to find that the actual group size was much larger, ranging from 50 to 60 people (I counted 38 on the lower deck and a full upper deck). This deviation from the expected group size was disheartening, especially because I had hoped for smaller groups during the Komodo Island tour. Instead, we had all 50-60 of us navigating through the jungle together. Despite this setback, I must admit that the day was both terrific and incredibly exhausting. The initial hike, while challenging, featured well-constructed steps and rewarded us with breathtaking views. There were five designated viewpoints, allowing individuals to choose how far they wanted to ascend. The three snorkeling stops along the way were delightful, although some of them had strong currents that might not suit weaker swimmers. Fortunately, life jackets were readily available. To catch a glimpse of manta rays, confidence in the water and quick reactions were essential. Regrettably, a few slow swimmers ahead of me delayed everyone, causing us to miss this incredible sight. It was disappointing that some travelers' inconsiderate actions tainted this experience. The highlight of the day was undoubtedly Komodo Island, and our guide truly excelled. The pink sand beach left me in awe. However, disembarking from the boat often involved climbing across up to five other boats, making it unsuitable for those with limited mobility. The boat staff and guides were exceptional, readily taking photos for us and knowing the best spots to explore. The day was packed to the brim and unquestionably tiring, but the overall experience was undeniably worthwhile Lunch was good I provided my feedback to exploration and they said they will look into this for future trips .

          A view to behold - especially in the early morning
          (+) - The view at the village is magical - By sleeping together with the other travellers, you get to interact and make friends (-) - Hostel style sleeping arrangement - Cold water for shower - Simple dinner/Breakfast (Vege and egg only) - Trekking up to the village is tough, 3hrs uphill

          Check entry fees but the day was good
          Tour guide was excellent and crew very good. There were some hiccups with pick up because agreed to pick up 6.15 but arrived 5.50. We were obviously not ready. Another surprise was the entry tickets that were more expensive then previously told. Check before how much exactly you have to pay in addition. The rest of the day was great.

          Very good trip
          The trip was very nice. Treking early in the morning was a good idea because later in the full sun it would be unbeareble. Pink beach is beautiful, and komodo dragon are majestic :) our tour guide was nice and with good english

          Patience required
          Very chaotic, with many delays. Be prepared for a lack of communication and long hours of waiting in the heat. Sea water came in through the windows, and luggage was stored all over the place. Some companies seem to be better run than others, but impossible to figure out how to get on the safer boats

          Waerebo village sleep with locals
          You need to walk about 2,5-3 hours for hiking depend on on your speed. You need to sleep in the local house with another visitors. At night freezing on December. You can have local people to bring your backpack if you don't want to bring for your own. Don't take any pictures once you arrived at the village. You need to take an honour to the leader of the village who will give you speach and ceremony to welcome you first.

          A long trip that will let your jaw drop!
          From Labuan Bajo, it was a 3-hour drive, after it, we were put on a scooter for a 15-minute drive and then it just all started. 3 hours non-stop hiking up. Quiet hard but totally worth it! A beautiful setting where you see the locals put the hard work in drying the coffee beans every morning, very nice to see. Btw: I would strongly advise you to buy bring some coffee to your home country, it's amazing!

        A bit sad that the first stop to see the fishes was on a spot where most of the corals are dead so not much fishes. Disapointed that we did not stop at the second spot to do snorkeling, so we arrived much earlier on the spot to see the Komodo dragon and could have seen much more of them one hour later as they were begining to go out when we left as the sun was lower. Also if we stopped at the second spot of snorkeling we wouldn't have had to wait 1h30 to see the sunset in a place were there was not much to do as to wait. the staff was barely friendly.

        So i will say, very expensive for what we get.

        Happy in retrospect to have done a half day with a kid in tow. Pick up was at 11.30 and ended at 7 Pm. We did 2 snorkelings, Rinca Island trek to see the Komodo dragons and a final Bat sighting at Kalong island. It was sufficient for a good sight seeing experience. We were also in a speed boat so you’re halving the travel time. The speedboat was new, clean and there’s a toilet onboard. Lunch and pick up at your hotel are provided. I have read reviews that Komodo Island is too commercialised and overrun. Rinca was a good call as it’s still very much in its natural setting, Less touting. We were lucky to have spotted 6 dragons. 5 feasted a poor water buffalo which was a rare sight as they eat once a month. It was all very professional, efficient and friendly service. My 9 year old son was safe and thoroughly enjoyed it! We ran out of batteries by 7 PM so half day was a great idea.

        Was good to be on a smaller boat and not jet around too many islands. We had one stop to do some snorkeling and hiking, saw the Drangons on Rinca and an amazing sunset with swarming bats. Well rounded day that was relaxed.
