Such an amazing experience! Everything was so organised. James our tour guide picked us up and took us to the port where we would climb aboard the boat which we’d be staying on for the night! We both felt like pirates! It was so relaxing and we could chill on top off the roof where they had beanbags for us. We where supplied with plenty off food freshly cooked and also smoothies! We first stopped off at Rinca Island where we could see the Komodo dragons! then we climbed back onto the boat and headed to Kalong island to watch the bats fly from the cave, which there where thousands and wasn’t expecting it! On day 2 we woke up early and went to padar island which was a climb but what an amazing view you had after off the black, pink and white beaches! Then headed off to Komdo island, the pink beach and to the manta point where we went snorkelling with the manta rays! Couldn’t of asked for a better tour guide we both had Such an amazing time! Would definitely recommend!

I had an amazing time on the Komodos. But first things first: My booking and payment was super easy. As it was already my second tour with The Seven Holiday the communication was as expected. Krisna replied directly and gave me all the information I needed. The Komodo islands are a must do! Amazing scenery. The snorkeling tour was very nice. I don't know how to describe it, I'm speechless. The night on the boat was fun, a very cool experience. I would book with The Seven Holiday again, since they've done an amazing job already twice. Highly recommended !!!

It was a lot of fun. Our guide was very funny and the food was simply sensational. We were a little skeptical at the beginning, but were pleasantly surprised! TOP! Would love to do it again!

Its almost perfect if it wasn't rain. Easy to book, acceptable pricing and the guide (sorry forget his name) was very good. Its a tropical paradise. Thanks for the wonderful experience.

Minimal slow converted fishing boat, but a lot of fun for those who do not demand luxury.
