What people are saying about Mataram
Unfortunately the day we was supposed to go I was ill during the night, with help from our hotel the guide very kindly offered to reschedule to the following day. Our guide picked us up the following day on time, with his driver, the guide told us so much about the island and about the places we was passing through. First stop was the King's Palace, was a lovely place very peaceful. We declined to go to a local market but saw plenty on our drive, we stopped and had pineapple, drove up through the mountains, taking in all the scenery, once at the top we stopped for photo opportunities, and looked for the black monkeys. Going down through the valley we went strawberry picking. We stopped for lunch at the top of the waterfalls, the restaurant was lovely and a popular spot with more photo opportunities of the views. After going in the waterfall we went to a tribal village, where we could walk through and around, on the way back we stopped for more photos of views of Gili Island & Bali.
This was a great trip, with plenty of snorkelling and variety of fish and turtles at the three different Locations. You also get the chance to explore Gilli Trawangan which is an experience in itself. My guide was very friendly and had plenty of knowledge to share about Lombok and the Gillis. My boatman was also very friendly and helped me with some of the local language. The trip is great value for money, especially as it is just you, the guide and the boatman, no large groups. I was sceptical when I booked as it was the cheapest of the various trips to choose from but I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
We had great communication with this company nearly the whole time. We hired an airport pickup, however; when we missed our flight and emailed them to tell them we would be a few hours late we did not hear back. Our next flight was delayed by an hour, and we hadn't heard back from our driver, so we were sure we would need to hire a new driver, but once we landed there he was! Very pleased that even though plans had changed, we were still picked up

A full day's sight seeing where we had plenty of time to explore and photograph the interesting places we visited. We felt that the guides always had our enjoyment as their top priority. Each location was explained and our questions answered. We were also informed about the local way of life and traditions. Plus we had a very good and safe driver. We were pleased with our day out.
