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 !!!

We saw 5 Komodo’s of all sizes as well as wild boar, deer, and assorted birds. The Komodo’s were viewed quite close up with opportunity of videoing them in action. Two were eating a turtle carcass at the beach. Guides were nice and informative about the Komodos life, reproduction, hatching, and early life, diet, etc. Trails were not a challenge thought quite warm. Bathroom facilities are readily available.

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.
