My intention with the travel agency is to show my customers the real and authentic Lombok.

PERSonalised service is always high in a traveller's agenda whereby one is on holiday, especially for me.

Tripadvisor is a common social media app which one normally uses to get reviews for travel matters.

We came across Authentic Lombok Tour in the tripadvisor website. I can understand why this tour agency get such excellent reviews as it definitely fits my first sentence of "PERSonalised service".

Professional: Though he just recovered from his recent flu, he did not cancel our arranged tour. He still made a point to be punctual for our tour and picked us up from our hotel for the tour.

Efficiency: it is always nice to have a tour guide to be efficient (a common indicator for most Singaporean). Being efficient (in my vocabulary) means one is able to achieve the target set for any tour and by having an efficient tour guide helps. Needless for me to say more, Chris definitely exceeds my expectations though mine should be considered low.... However, I have confidence that he has no problems meeting any high expectations set by most people.

Resourceful: Chris has many contacts in Lombok, thus it is effortless for him to make any last minute arrangement if one wants to deviate from the original plan.

Service: Last but most important criteria of a tour guide. His service as a tour guide is top-notch, something which is hard to find for most tour guide. Most of the tour guides will just follow instructions but not give further recommendations or ideas. Being resourceful and knowing that it was our first trip to Lombok, he will share his own personalised recommendations (must do things in Bali) with us. He even went to the extent to arrange dinner at a local, value-for-monies but yet nice ambient restaurant (outside of the agreed tour) for us. The icing of the cake is that he even talked to the boss of the restaurant to arrange transport at the end of the dinner back to our hotel.

Looking back, it is very rare to get such service in Bali and definitely worth that grading mentioned in Tripadvisor.

Lastly, to be honest, Chris deserves better chances and will be waste of talent if there isn't any big tour agencies come by to offer him a deserving position.

* By the way, it is common for most Singaporeans to measure anything based on objectives or outcome.

A few friends and I were in Lombok and chose Chris based on his high Tripadvisor rating. We were not disappointed. He set us up with excellent guides who were punctual and extremely friendly. He knows the island very well and all the hidden gems on the island. He went out of his way to show us the best spots on the island and catered to our interests. Top notch choice. Very professional. You can't go wrong with Chris!

Chris made sure we had a memorable day. He was on time and was fun to be with. He made sure every detail was taken care of from motion sickness medicine, drinks, food and any stop we wanted to make. He made recommendations and got us out of our shell by sharing stories and really meeting our groups' diverse needs. Quite a day on pink beach tour and the best snorkelling in the most relaxed way. Adi the boat guy showed us the best area to snorkel and he made sure we were safe at all times. The fish BBQ was the best ever and we even had a photo op with a puffer fish. You will not be pressured into anything or be disappointed. Chris is an upfront honest guy who just wants you to have a good time.

We find the website of Authentic Lombok Tours and we choose the pink beach tour.
And, we didn't regret it because we got the best snorkelling :)
It was really amazing scenery, we swim in a private beach.
At the same time, Adi, the boat man of authentic lombok tours has prepare for us the best barbeque fish with rice and fresh veggies.
Over all the service for us is Oscar, from the driver (Ono his name) and the boat man (Adi).
Thank you authentic lombok tour :) and for sure we gonna recommend to all of our friends.

We got in touch with Chris after finding his company on Trip Advisor (he had such great reviews!). He gave us some recommendations for things to do and see after asking us what kind of things we wanted to do and off we went! We had the most amazing day and did/saw things we never would have if we'd gone on our own. Chris was so helpful and friendly and gave us so many fantastic tips and explanations! Chris, truly went above and beyond to make our day special and nothing felt rushed or forced. Chris genuinely wanted us to have a good time and get the most of the trip and that we did! It was without a doubt one of the best days of our trip and it was a pleasure to have met him and spend the day with him. We definitely wouldn't hesitate to recommend his tours. Thank you again Chris :-)
