Full description
In between Bali and Lombok, 3 idyllic islands can be found: Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air. These little coral islands have a real laid-back tropical island feel and make perfectly placed hideouts from the hustle and bustle of the mainland. With no traffic and nothing but fresh ocean breeze, this 3-day 2-night tour takes you to see two of these islands for an excursion full of relaxation, and special moments to remember for a lifetime. Your first day starts with a 7:00 AM pick-up from your hotel in Bali, which will take you to the Patagonia Express, a speedboat that will arrive at Gili Trawangan in just a few hours’ time. On the way, catch breathtaking views of Mount Agung and the deep blue sea. Once on the island, spend the day relaxing at a beautiful tropical island resort – lounge by the pool, dive in the sea or hop on a bicycle to explore the coastline. Don’t miss the sunset at one of the beach clubs – it’s a true spectacle of nature you don’t want to miss out on! Your second day features a private snorkeling tour on Gili Trawangan’s quieter but equally beautiful sister island, Gili Air. The 3-hour snorkeling tour takes you to see several amazing spots, beautiful coral reefs and colorful marine life. You’ll also get to swim with giant sea turtles, a magical experience! Spend the rest of the day as you like at another tropical resort – sipping cocktails, swimming, sunbathing – before another magnificent island sunset kicks in. If you’re an early bird, start day 3 early to catch the awe-inspiring sunrise of Gili Air. Otherwise, snoozing in bed to the sound of the sea is a lovely way to spend the first hours of your last morning on the Gili Islands. Enjoy one more swim in the turquoise sea, sit down for breakfast and say goodbye to these gorgeous islands. The Patagonia Express boat will bring you back to the mainland of Bali where you will be transported to your hotel by shuttle bus.

Very responsive customer service

The trip took place as indicated on the program, we had the chance to observe turtles during our snorkeling session. Despite the presence of many other tourists from other boats, the experience was sensational thanks to the supervision of our guides on site. However, we resorted to customer service by phone due to some misunderstanding during the trip including our return to Bali to find our transfer vehicle. Indeed, many taxis claim to be our driver but claim an additional payment, so do not listen! Our driver was waiting for us a few meters further in the harbor.

It was just fantastic!

We would book this trip again and again, the communication was very easy via WhatsApp. Everything is booked in advance and we were informed in good time. The hotel resorts were awesome, we were taken there and back with speed boats. From one island to the other islands, we had a private boat, which made the snorkeling trip with us at the same time. It was perfect all round. Thank you very much.

It was a great experience!

The tour was really very well organized. We were picked up at our hotel in Ubud and the driver, despite being in a difficult place, was on time. The crossing to Gili T was an experience and once we arrived we were nicely met at the harbor and brought to our hotel, where we turned out to have a fantastic beach house. On day 2 the captain also picked us up on time and the snorkeling tour was absolutely great! Also on Gili Air we had a very cool house. This tour is really recommended!
