Testimonials about Komodo Travel & Transportation


I just wanted to say how wonderful our tour was with your guide Irfan and driver Astor. We booked the tour through lintangbuanatours.com. We absolutely loved Flores and Irfan was the perfect guide for us, he was very informed and suggested excellent sights, he was relaxed but always professional. Astor was a very careful and considerate driver who was always happy to stop for a photo or a coffee whenever we wanted. Congratulations on running such a great travel company. If ever we return to Flores, we would book with you directly as we know that Irfan has much more to show us.

Thank you

Hi Ali & Randal

Just wanted to send a quick e-mail to “Thank you” for the tour on Komodo Island – loved everything! The snack was exceptional!

We are travelling until Dec 4/16 – so once we are home, I’ll e-mail the video that you took on Komodo Island. Take care & I’ll be sure to pass on your name to any travellers that are interested in visiting Komodo.

Hi Randal,

I’m finally back in the US and catching up on emails, apologies for the delayed response. Thanks again for all of your help setting up both Komodo and Tanjung Puting.

For Tanjung Puting, everyone really thought that was one of the best experiences we’ve ever had! Al and Joe were phenomenal, the klotok and speedboats were great, and the wildlife experiences were truly incredible. Really nothing I can say but positive things.

For Komodo, it was overall a very good day. The experience of seeing the Komodo Dragons on Rinca was really fun, the boat was nice and the staff very friendly.

(Note on Josh's trip...this group wanted a large yacht, chartered for a day trip, to Komodo and Rinca which we organized and accompanied, then we also ran a short trip to Borneo for them. They were traveling by private jet on a whirl wind tour of Indonesia)

Hey Eric

Just to say we're back from another fantastic day with Ali and the guys.

Thanks for everything. My travel companion writes a travel blog and he's sure to mention your services when he posts about Komodo. Wishing you all the best for the future.

Eric and Randal and Ali,

Yes, it was a wonderful experience. And yes, the boat was rustic but I was treated royally and well. If my wife had come, we would have gone up a notch or two.

The trip was all that I had hoped for. Saw an incredible amount in 28 hours on the water and land. Still seems surreal to think that 24 hours ago I was on Komodo Island. Please pass on my very sincere thanks to Karni and Dundee. They were a treat to boat with!

I will recommend you and Komodo Travellers to friends and acquaintances back in Canada. Brrr! Latest reports say still cold and some snow.

I can’t give enough praise for this trip. We were traveling through Indonesia for nearly 6 weeks and the 4 days spent on this boat was easily the best part. Firstly, the area is absolutely beautiful. We saw komodo dragons, hiked to some of the most gorgeous views I had ever seen, snorkeled in beautiful private areas and witnesses spectacular sunsets every night.

My mother, a friend and I had rented the private boat and we were joined by a private chef, captain, tour guide and a couple crew members. Every one of them was kind, respectful, and always prioritized our safety and comfort. The boat itself was clean and well-maintained. The chef was amazing, three full meals a day with snacks in between – the fresh fruit smoothies were the best. Caught fresh fish off the boat and enjoyed it for dinner, the local cuisine is exquisite! The crew members and tour guide accompanied us to the islands to make sure everything went well, showed us the best private spots to snorkel and lie on the beach.

We were three women traveling alone, but our crew made us feel so safe. Our guide, Ali, went above and beyond to make this trip perfect. He spoke English well and was able to translate, was happy to adjust our itinerary to suit our interests and gave us plenty of time to enjoy everything the area had to offer. The value was great; the price covered everything for the full 4 days, even arranged transport to and from the airport. I would definitely recommend booking!
