Gili Getaway is the most professional travel operator we have used throughout Asia. From the seamless booking process, on-time schedule, professional staff and good communication.
It was great to be able and to book a boat that included transfers to our hotels in Seminyak and Ubud.
We travelled from Bali to Gili T.
Tip: if you’re sitting up top, be prepared to get soaked if the sea is rough.

So, you,want to go to The beautiful Gili Islands but there are so many companies to choose from .... Look no further as this company is the most organised and has great service. We were staying in Legian so the price includes pick up and drop off transfers with your fast boat ticket and is only 30 mins to the harbour instead of 3 hours when you leave from up north. When you arrive at the harbour you show your passport and get a lanyard depending on which island you are travelling g to. The direct fast boat took us. 1 hour and 4 mins but times can change depending on the weather. This time I was travelling with. My father who is a recent amputee and the staff wee sensational assisting us. Thank you and your team for making dad's wish to see Gili T one more time possible .... All of the other operators didn't want to know us.

Made traveling to and back from Gili T super easy. They were on time for our arrival and for our departure they emailed us a day in advance to let us know of a 15 min delay. The staff was friendly and professional. They handled our bags with care and even gave us water and candy on the boat. Sitting on the top of the boat was super comfortable and prevented sea sickness. I am so thankful for their business!!

good pickup and drop off service. On time and clean vehicle. Denny, our driver, was the very best. We shared that we were pretty hungry and he dropped us at a little cafe to grab something before getting on the boat. Honestly incredible food, and so considerate of Denny. The checkin staff was helpful and waiting area spacious and easy. Boat was on time, if not early 👀, and was a great service. Be careful if you sit up too though, you’ll get drenched and if you’re light skinned (even with sunscreen) probably Scorched. Ride from Gili T was also smooth with check in and departure time. Sat in the bottom of the boat that time, and woweee was it a bumpy day on the ocean. They had a movie playing though which was very helpful and distracting. Highly recommend this company. Very legit and good at what they do 🙌🏻

We used Gili Getaway for our return trip to Gilli Trawangan as recommended by our hotel on the island. The boat was modern and staff friendly. We had an 'interesting' crossing with high swells but the captain ensured we remained safe. They also collected us from our hotel prior to departure and dropped us at our hotel upon our return all with the booking fee. Recommended.

Great service. We made it from Gili T to Bali on time (actually 15 mins earlier than expected!). Bags were loaded safely and everything ran smoothly. I was impressed with the organisation and efficiency to get everyone onto shuttles to where they needed to go.
It's not a fun ride if you get sea sick, the water is very choppy but that has nothing to do with the company at all, that's just the conditions. I'd use this company again if I ever return to Gili T.

Incredible return trip with these guys! Picked up on time at a hotel for transfer to the boat. Great service while on board with clear information about where we're going and all the stops. They offered water, mentos, sea sick tablets, sunscreen and even wet towels before arrival. The staff were friendly and helpful. They even prioritised me to make sure I catch my flight (which I did!) on the return trip from Gili T to Bali. Will definitely book with them again - hopefully soon ;)

OK, it was not the cheapest available option to go from Gili Trawangan to Bali but it was the best.
Excellent service, friendly staff, not a thing to worry about, professional luggage handling. The boat was clean, and the trip in total was remarkably efficient!!

I had a problem because of the transfer of my payment (neither my fault nor Giligetaway’s). Although I had some stress for more than a week exchanging emails trying to solve the problem, management of Giligetaway finally declared their readiness to absorb the small loss which I greatly appreciated!
This aside, our trip with Giligetaway was an excellent experience from A to Z; starting with the first pickup from our hotel in Bali to our transfer on our return. Their boats our powerful and reliable, their organisation and staff excellent. And they are punctual to the minute.

We were picked up from our hotel on time and the boat left on time too - exactly 9am! Customer service was excellent, the staff were very courteous & always let us know what was going on. We got free water and mentos, cool towels and a movie to watch. Toilet on board the boat was clean. My only criticism is the toilet at their office in Serangan was a bit dirty but nothing horrendous. I would use this service again.
