We did a three day (two night) trekking tour on the mount rinjani a couple of days ago with lombok expeditions We have a really good experience with lombok expedition the porters (mr.m and jodi) and guide brought more than enough food (big males, hot tea, fruit, soft drinks, chocolate bars, etc) and took great care of us. Also the tent was quite big and we had good mattresses. Good guide was very friendly is english was good.

The climb is really hard but definitely worth and the view is beatiful. However, bring warm clothes for the night and the top of rinjani because its very cold.

Thankyou lombok expeditions and team

We didn't find him, he found us, Ali came across as honest and reliable for all our laundry and scooter hire needs, Ali is the "go to" guy in Sengiggi, an all round nice guy.

I have used scoter rental service from Lombok Expeditions several times over many years and the service is great ! Always new scooters. Well maintained and clean, so always pleasant, reliable and safe to use, even for longer trips around the island. In addition, a good daily rate that will not break your budget. Lombok Expeditions are easy to find, just right opposite all the restaurants on the main street. Good servce, good deals, well done.

Our trip with Levi was great. He was on time to pick us up, the transport to the river was comfortable, and most of all he was really funny. He looked after us very well and made sure we had everything we needed. The rafting was heaps of fun and lunch was awesome.
We had so much fun with Levi we've asked him to take us out again today. Prices are really affordable.

The hotel was going to charge us a lot for a standard Gili Island tour, we decided to recce what was available in town and chanced upon Lombok Expeditions. Ali was very patient explaining to us our options, then recommended we go somewhere a little more secluded and less touristy. It involved a longer road by land (1hour) and a shorter boat ride (10min). The price was reasonable for a full day tour and we were only required to pay a 50% deposit.

The next day, a new guide, Omar, fetched us promptly at our hotel at Qunci Villas and took us on the scenic drive. It was a beautiful day and there were many opportunities to stop for instagram-worthy pics.

We picked out our equipment at the boatpoint, and took a traditional sampan out to Gili Nanggu. The water was calm, they explained that it was an area protected from the open seas which was soothing to amateur snorkelers like ourselves.

The only problem I have is the amount of trash on Gili Nanggu, we had arrived at low tide and there was durian skins, plastic bottles, plastic bags, diapers lining the shore. It was totally unexpected and very sad to see the state of this 'secluded' beach. The snorkelling equipment was also faulty, I was stranded for awhile before being given a new working set.

The other 2 islands we went were Gili Sudak and Gili Kedis. We had lunch at Gili Sudak in a simple restaurant hut. They served us fresh fish, so fresh the flesh melted in our mouth! Too good. We asked for kicap ABC, coke and coffee Lombok and all were available even though the island looked barely populated. Gili Kedis is a tiny island, with a man-made swing for sunset watching- totally instagram worthy! Again, just ignore the litter and try to avoid them getting into your photos.

Overall I enjoyed the Gilis Island Hop with Lombok Expeditions, we were given the liberty of taking our own time exploring each island, the guides with us were friendly and showed us the wonderful sea creatures like starfishes and jellyfishes (small ones that were not poisonous).

The place has so much potential- its a perfect island escape. Perhaps the fact that it was not touristy meant there was no proper cleaning routine, would have been so much better if it was cleaner and better-maintained.

[Note: I would not recommend this place for families with children, its very secluded with minimal facilities like a toilet or changing rooms.]

Enroute back, Omar acceded to our requests to stop for souvenirs and also a nice Nasi Padang dinner before reaching the hotel around 8pm. He even recommended a place for spa and allowed us to stop there on the way to the hotel to book a slot for the following day. Lombok Expeditions is very professional, flexible and friendly and priced reasonably. We even booked our airport transfer with them!
