I booked this tour with Richard Bon from Top Komodo Tours. Total of 64 passengers from cruise ship booked and all emails from company where handle fast and efficient. I had paper work from Richard to give to Cruise ship and we where able to get on to ships tenders easier (with out having to book tour offered from cruise ship) We where meet ashore by the happy tour guides, all our names ticked off , put into smaller groups, given cold water and then able to leave our large bags while we went for a walk . There where not dragons around as it was mating season, just the a sleeping one. But on our return to ship, just before leaving a group of us where lucky enough to see one walking down the beach! So got some great photo's
Top Komodo Tours took us to pink beach and supplied snorkels. We had snacks on way to pink beach and a lovely lunch on return boat trip. I really enjoyed the lovely group of people I traveled with and we where looked after very well by our tour guides. I would highly recommend contacting Richard Bon from Top Komodo Tours if you are going to Komodo Island

From the minute we arrive the team collected us and started going through the information in regards to the park, its staff and the wildlife. We managed to see some dragons in the first 5 minutes of the walk and the continued commentary was brilliant. The walk went for about 1.5 - 2hrs in total and seemed like it was only 30 minutes. We arrived at a waterhole and had a real opportunity to get up close to more dragons that were basking in the sun. Great trip, great tour, great people.. We recommend Top Komodo Tours to anyone looking to explore a land lost in time.

We did this tour whilst on a cruise ship, Richard Bon and his guides were excellent. I did the komodo dragon tour only, my wife & daughter also did the Pink Beach tour. Richard was one of the guides for the Komodo Dragon tour he was very kmowlegable explaining in detail about the local flora & fauna and answered all our questions.We got to see several dragons the local deer & wild pigs also we were lucky and spotted a baby dragon from a distance. The tour was 1.5 hours but our tour lasted nearly 3 hours so it was great value.The terrain is fairly easy to walk through but hot & humid, there was only one large hill that we had to climb as this is where the Dragon's warm themselves of a morning as they are cold blooded, there where some great views to be seen from the top of the island and back out to sea. Komodo is a national park both the island and the surrounding sea. I found it dissapointing that some cruise companies monopolise the tours and don't allow the locals to compete after all they are the one's that maintain the island and it's facilities.
There is a small market you can visit after the tour with handmade items also some food and drinks. As I said my wife and daughter visited pink beach by boat after the Dragon tour they said it was great but as I did not go I can't elaborate. I organised both tours through Cruise Critic there were 24 people who joined this tour and all there comments were positive.

We were on a princess cruise and arranged a tour of Komodo island and pink beach directly with top Komodo tours. They were fantastic Richard and his team we friendly and helpful. Aaron was our tour guide, he did a great job, we were a small group of 7 far better than the princess tour group we moved quite quickly around Komodo island and received a lot of info, as well as a close up look at the dragons "nest" . We had a good trip over pink beach and the top,tours provided an unexpected lunch, really lovely. Thank you top Komodo tours for being well prepared and the enjoyable experience!

Well organised & informative trip. We spent 2 hours visiting the National park to see the Komodo Dragons. Saw 5 including 1 baby. We also saw their resting place & nest.
Easy walking. We also saw deer & orchids.
we then took a boat to the Pink beach & had a swim & snorkel. Coral OK. We then returned to the boat where we had lunch. Mei Goreng, rice, fried calamai, fried chicken, fried fish, vegetables, mashed potato & watermelon.
