    Amazing snorkeling experience, very beautiful underwater scenery, I swam with turtles and fish. the coral reefs there are also very beautiful and colorful, the equipment provided is complete and safe so we are comfortable snorkeling, I also watched the Moto Gp race at the Mandalika International Circuit, it was very exciting and stressful, I am very satisfied with this trip, I highly recommend the trip this!

    Excellent......My family and I really enjoyed this trip. It was an experience that I will never forget for the rest of my life. Even though I can't swim, I can still enjoy the beauty of the underwater world. even children aged 10 years can also participate in snorkeling activities safely because they are guided by an experienced crew. The guide and driver are very friendly, kind, experienced, fun, likes to joke so the atmosphere is cheerful. The typical Lombok food served is delicious, the place to eat is comfortable and clean. I highly recommend this BALE LAUT Travel for a vacation with family or friends.👍👍👍👍👍

    For me, this was easily the best day of my trip. This was because;
    - Moderately physical so I got a decent workout
    - Informative - lots of information and local knowledge provided by both our driver guide and walking-tour guide
    - Got to have a little insight into how the locals live
    - Beautiful scenery and immersion in nature

    We got picked up on time by our guide and driver Chandra from our resort in Senggigi. We had great conversations during our drive, learning lots of interesting facts abut local culture that we never would have learnt otherwise, and he filled us with lots of interesting stories - he was also very funny and easy-going.

    Our first stop was a temple - unfortunately we couldn't go inside because there were special prayers happening, however we explored a little of the perimeter and got a small taste of a temple built for both Muslims and Hindu's. Chandra provided us with great facts along the way.

    We then drove to the start of our walking tour and was introduced to our walking guide who took us the rest of the way.
    Our walking guide took us for approx 2.5 hour walk through the rice terraces where he provided us some knowledge on harvesting and the process. Our guide's English was at a basic level, however we were definitely able to understand him and communicate and he was able to communicate with us in explaining some parts of the harvesting processes.

    The views were simply breathtaking - one of those things you really have to see for yourself to fully appreciate.

    There was a coffee break around this point where we got to try some of the local Tete Batu coffee. I love trying anything local, so really appreciated this. also grateful for the boost of energy.

    We then walked for approx another 1.5 hours (approx only as we didn't have watches with us) to 2 separate waterfalls which you could swim at both, we only swam at the second one and the water was so refreshing after walking for so long.

    We had lunch soon after this which is included in the tour price - simple menu with local dishes - in all honesty not sure if it is because it is cooked with fresh and local produce, or because i had such a good day, but this was probably my favorite meal of my whole trip. All in a tiny rickety hut, it was delicious.

    We then walked to Monkey Forrest - so different from Balinese Monkey Forrest where you get your things stolen. Here, the monkeys were happy sitting in their trees and eating their berry's and didn't come near us at all. A much better experience here being able to see them in their habitat, without too much interference from humans. They were happy, i was happy.

    Our driver guide Chandra picked us up from here as it just started to rain, so we didn't have to walk the last part back to the car in the rain.

    It is worth noting that it does state "moderate fitness". It is really true in this case and you might find in slightly challenging in parts if you are not of moderate fitness. Although the pace was slow, there were some inclines, and you really had to keep your balance walking along the rice fields as the areas we walk between the fields were quite narrow, also keep your eyes out for quite a few hidden holes along the rice fields. As we went on the cusp of wet season, it was also very slippery in a few places.

    To get to the waterfalls, a couple of crossings were bamboo poles, some slippery rocks and a couple of bridges that made me nervous - but to me, these were also the best part of this tour, getting me outside my comfort zone, and putting complete trust in our guide - I had so much fun and loved it every step of the way.

    I highly recommend good shoes/trainers as it was slippery when we went - I was also happy with my decision to bring a pair of thongs (flip-flops, slippers) as I have quite sensitive feet and there were some parts requiring to walk along river beds in the water. - Definitely bring your swimmers/bathers and towel if you plan on going for a swim.

    Definitely remember to wear sun-screen and a hat as it is a long tour, although half is in the shade. I didn't bring mosquito repellent and surprisingly didn't get many bites, although i think there is potential for that.

    ALSO - Remember to check for leeches when you get home. My partner had a big one coming out of shoe on the drive back.

    All in all this was an incredible experience and I would have done more tours with Chandra if we had more time. When the world is ready for tourists again and we visit Lombok again, we will definitely call Chandra for all our travel and touring needs. A big thank you to Chandra, our walking tour guide (whose name i have forgotten) and also to all of the local people we met on this tour, they were all so beautiful.

    The work that this team are doing is inspirational. We spent an afternoon learning about the importance of coral reefs and the incredible work being done to rebuild reefs that have died due to global warming and dynamite fishing. We then went on a dive and had the opportunity to plant our own piece of coral on the reef structure! We can’t wait to return in a couple of years to see how the reef has grown. It is an experience that we will never forget! Thank you

    We used Bale Laut Lombok Tour Organizer to go Tanjung aan beach, merese hill, Sasak Village, and pottery village. Chandra and his partner both spoke English. They picked us up from our hotel,

    We had a very busy honeymoon where we went to Beijing, Lanzhou, the Tibet border, Bali then finally Lombok. At that point we were tired and stressed of having to handle everything ourselves so Lombok Tour Organizer was a welcomed change of pace. We didn’t have to think. We just relaxed and the tour guides did everything for us.

    Let me just say that this has been such a magical experience for my partner and I. It was one of his bucket list dreams to snorkel and set eyes in person on the underwater statue. Our pick up time was approx at 0630 *our driver Mr. P was early* which was actually quite nice because we had time to eat breakfast at the fast boat lobby* We were met by Mr. Hady and Mr. Mul who promptly escorted us to our private glass bottom boat. My partner is not a good swimmer at all but we had great snorkeling guides that made sure we were safe at all times. Mr. Sabirin was another snorkeling guide/boatman that accompanied us which was a great thing because it was quite windy and the current was strong. I had difficulty free driving because of the current but the Mr. Mul made sure I was about to get underwater to physically touch the underwater statues. The experience was so surreal, I wanted to cry underwater 😆 The wind was so strong that it blew our drone into the water of which one of the guys dived right in to save it. Forever appreciative of their expertise, guide and kind nature. We can't wait to be back and hopefully experience other tours with Mr. Hady and company!
