Excludes
Flights to and from the destination where your IndoExcursions trip begins and ends Visa and Passport Fees Travel Insurance Excess Baggage Charges Meals and Activities not specified on the Trip Itinerary Alcoholic Beverages Personal Expenses
Cancellation
CANCELLATION BY THE TRAVELLER. Within our industry, travellers typically pay for their entire trips 2 months in advance. Travellers are usually eligible for a 50% refund on trips which are cancelled more than 30 days in advance, and are not eligible any refund on trips which are cancelled less than 30 days in advance. At INDOEXCURSIONS, we operate on a different model. You pay only 50% of your Trip Fee 2 months in advance (which provides us the funds to book domestic airline flights and make deposits for boat charters, hotels rooms and service providers on your behalf). The remaining balance (50%) of your Trip Fee is not due until 30 days prior to your trip departure. Under our model, your initial payment and final payment are both non-refundable, but you pay no monies until it is absolutely necessary. We feel that this is a more "positive" approach, as it eliminates any negativity which might result from you having paid your full Trip Fee 2 months in advance and then needing to pursue a refund later. We hope you agree. CANCELLATION BY US. If, for any reason, we must cancel a trip which you have booked, we will immediately inform you of the cancellation and promptly refund, without delay, any fees which have been paid by you for the given trip. Should you decide to book an alternate INDOEXCURSIONS trip, you may request that monies paid for the cancelled trip be applied to the alternate trip (rather than refunded to you) and we will happily oblige. (Please note that, to-date, INDOEXCURSIONS has never cancelled the trip of a fully paid traveller.) BOOKING AMENDMENTS. We recognise that life is filled with unexpected turns and we try to remain flexible at all times. If you would like to (i) transfer from one trip to another, (ii) transfer your entire booking to a third party, or (iii) make any other changes to your booking, we will make every effort to accommodate your request(s) as painlessly and as economically as possible. For changes made at least 60 days prior to your trip departure date, there will be no additional charges whatsoever. Sadly, however, if you make changes less than 60 days prior to your trip, we may need to charge you for non-recoverable expenses and/or penalties levied by hotels, ground operators and airlines in connection with your trip. However, we will only charge you for 'real expenses.' IndoExcursions will NOT apply any additional surcharges for changes. Except under extenuating circumstances, no amendments are permitted to your booking within 10 days of departure.

Indo Excursions

Imagine flying to the tropical Island of Flores in eastern Indonesia, boarding a luxurious traditional Indonesian sailing vessel, and setting sail for the the famed KOMODO ISLANDS!

Imagine spending 4 glorious days sleeping in opulent quarters and eating meals prepared by a private chef, whilst gliding through crystal blue waters teeming with dolphins, green turtles, giant mantarays and more marine life than anywhere else on earth. 

Imagine snorkeling on pristine white beaches (and a pink one too), and exploring island coastlines in search of a few of the 2,500 Komodo Dragons that inhabit the Komodo Islands. 

Each and every month, IndoExcursions' luxurious vessel raises it sails to take 8 travellers on the voyage of a lifetime.  We hope you'll join us.

Day 1

Selamat datang, welcome to the Island of FLORES and the KOMODO ISLANDS of eastern Indonesia! On Day 1, you and your fellow-travellers will arrive at the airport in Labuan Bajo (the capital of Flores) at various times throughout the day. Regardless of your arrival time, we will have an IndoExcursions driver greet you at the airport and deliver you to our beachfront resort in Labuan Bajo.

At 3:30pm, we'll convene for a very quick Orientation in the resort's beachfront restaurant, where you'll meet your Escort/Tour Leader and travel companions for the first time. The Tour Leader will give each traveller a 6-Day Trip Itinerary and a Mobile Telephone (so we can stay in touch throughout our time together).

Following the Orientation, you'll be free to relax poolside at the resort for a couple of hours, or, if you prefer, you can head into Labuan Bajo with some of your fellow-travellers and have some fun exploring the eclectic mix of shops and cafes that line the single street of this ramshackle port town.

At 5:30pm, all travellers will meet up a lovely cafe on Labuan Bajo's main street, where we'll enjoy a cocktail or coffee as we watch the sun set over the world-renown Komodo Islands just off the west coast of Flores. Then we'll stroll up the street for a sumptuous dinner at a restaurant with more tropical ambiance than any other in Labuan Bajo.

After dinner, we'll return to our resort for a good night's rest before heading out on our Komodo voyage in the morning.

IMPORTANT NOTES :

  • Each month, IndoExcursions conducts at 27-DAY JOURNEY ACROSS INDONESIA which includes the islands of Java, Sulawesi, Bali, Lombok and Flores. You'll be joining for the last stop of the tour, so many of your travel companions will have already been travelling together prior to you meeting up with them in Flores.

  • At no time will the total number of travellers ever exceed 8 persons.

Days 2, 3, 4, 5

Early on Day 2, we'll make our way back to the Labuan Bajo port and board IndoExcursions' large and luxurious phinisi ship - a magnificent traditional Indonesian sailing vessel with "mile-high" sails. With 8 IndoExcursions travellers onboard, a private chef and a full staff, we'll set sail for the Komodo Islands - a UNESCO-protected World Heritage Site and home to the famed Komodo Dragon, the world's largest monitor lizard.

Whilst intrepid travellers and dragon chasers have been coming to the Komodo Islands since the 1980s, it wasn't until 2011, when Komodo National Park was named as one of the NEW SEVEN WONDERS OF NATURE, that the islands caught the attention of the world at large.

For 4 glorious days, we'll glide through the crystal blue waters of the Komodo Islands - an area boasting the greatest marine biodiversity on earth, and teeming with dolphins, green turtles and giant mantarays. During our voyage, you may snorkel on pristine sandy white beaches; or explore the island coasts in search of Komodo Dragons; or, if you prefer, you may spend the entire 4 days relaxing on deck with a margarita in hand. All this, whilst enjoying world-class meals and accommodations on a luxurious sailing vessel. What's not to love?

On Day 5, upon returning from our 4-day cruise, we'll spend one final evening in Labuan Bajo, where we'll enjoy a lavish farewell dinner together and check into our resort for another night.

Day 6

Having spent 5 sun-filled days in Labuan Bajo and the Komodo Islands, you should have restored balance to your mind, body and spirit. We expect you'll be well-tanned, have heaps of photos, and lots of stories to tell when you get back home. But, more importantly, we hope you'll have many fond memories of experiences shared with new friends.

On Day 6, we'll say our goodbyes over breakfast at the resort, then go our separate ways.

Some travellers will depart immediately after breakfast, whilst others may stay until check-out (or even extend their stays a day or 2). Regardless of when you depart the resort, an IndoExcursions driver will be available to deliver you to the airport at no charge (assuming you're leaving the island following the tour).

WE HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US FOR 6 DAYS OF FRIENDSHIP AND CONVERSATION . . .

AND THE ADVENTURE OF A LIFETIME!

WE LOOK FORWARD TO TRAVELLING WITH YOU IN THE WEEKS OR MONTHS AHEAD.
