We had a very memorable tour, just a family of four on our own boat with a very knowledgeable crew and guide. We saw turtles and dragons, as well as some spectacular scenery. We also got quite sunburnt but that was really our own fault. Great value for money and we will always remember our trip.

We are a family of four (two teens) visiting Komodo National Park per boat four days and four nights. We had found Marsi and his business via the internet and had read the very good reviews. The trip was easily booked per WhatsApp: Marsi offered two different boats and two different formats, that we discussed and adjusted to our liking. We choose four days and three nights and had asked if we could stay one extra night on the boat in the port (which we were allowed to). At the starting day, Marsi picked us up at the airport and we immediately knew we were in good hands: after trying on the snorkelling gear, we went to the boat. There was a very nice crew of four, staying aboard for the whole tour. These men deserve a mentioning of their own as they were extremely helpful, friendly and nice to our kids. Food was healthy and tasteful, too. On the first day, we went to turtle beach, manta point and snorkelling (especially the swimming with manta rays is something we will never ever forget - such majestic animals and so many of them visiting us over and over again). The teens enjoyed canoeing the bays. The next day, we watched the dragons, went to pink beach and climbed Padar island for a spectacular view on a white, a pink and a black sanded bay. On day three snorkelling again, incredible amounts of tropical fish - lion fish, clown fish, butterfly fish and many others - in all colours you can imagine and brilliant corals. And just when we thought we had seen it all: the fruit bats flying from the mangroves - amazing us again. On day four, we sighted dolphins feeding and went snorkelling in three different reefs again. All the time we were guided by the wonderful Marsi: knowledgeable, fun and a great friend to our youngest, exploring all the islands, bays and mangroves. Thank you Marsi: we had a truely fabulous tour!

We had an amazing 2 day/1 night trip with Marsy through the islands around Komodo National Park. I contacted him after reading positive reviews and booked a trip. From the moment he picked us up at the airport to the time we left, we had a wonderful experience with him. I would 100% recommend both a trip to Komodo National Park and doing it with Marsy!

We have just come off a 2D/1N tour and all I can say was it was amazing. Fe our initial contact when we booked through a third party online, we found contact easy. Marsy met us at our hotel the night before we set sail and went through all the general info with us and made it clear, as it was just the four of us, we were able to adapt the your if we wanted to. Snorkelling gear was provided and we gave him shoe sizes and flippers were tried on before we set sail to make sure everything fit. On the first day we did 3 rounds of snorkelling and visited link beach with the chance to snorkel more and use the canoe if we so wished. We saw manta rays and turtle, Marsy told us he couldn't guarantee anything but we were lucky and saw plenty of both. He took amazing videos and photos with our GoPro as he has a lot of diving experience and could do better than we ever could. On the second day with visited Komodo, Padar and Rinca island. Had lively views on Padar (be warmed it is a lot of stairs) and saw plenty of dragons on the other islands. The crew were all lovely, food was great and plenty of it. We were well taken care of, felt safe at all times and Marsy explained everything so we knew exactly what was going on. Everything was included in the price except for tips (Rp50,000 for the Komodo and Rinca guides) and anything extra you want to give the crew. We would recommend this to anyone thinking of going to Labuan Bajo and will be talking about this holiday for years to come.
