I booked a snorkeling tour with Authentic Lombok Tours because of its consistent 5 stars rating, so I came in with pretty high expectations. At the end of the tour, not only ALT met but exceeded expectations. I brought home such fond memories that I would savor for a long time, the level of care and attention from each member of the team was unmatched to any other excursions that I had. I want to give a shout out to Totok, our driver and person in charge of our tour, Muhktar, the friendly colleague of Totok, and especially Amir and Rizky, scouts, my personal guide and caretaker in snorkeling. They were a phenomenal team, friendly, caring, and attentive. Totok engaged us in conversations, patiently teaching us phrases in Bahasa, sharing with us about his home and life. The others were not as competent in English, but they were just as friendly. Thank you so much, team ALT! You are the best!

We honestly had the best snorkeling day in our entire trip in SE Asia, even though it was an overcast, grey cloudy day, we were taken to 4 Gilis, where our small boat was the only people there. It felt a bit odd actually, because we came off our cruise ship with a couple thousands of people, but throughout the entire trip, starting from the long 40+ min ride from the cruise terminal, it felt like we were the only group on the island. On the way to the starting location, we spotted locals transplanting rice seedlings in a small rice field, I made a request to stop for picture, Totok immediately pulled over by the roadside, took my phone and walked over (in the mud) to snap pictures for us! Later, he stopped at a fruit stall and bought us tasty fruits to eat. He wanted to make sure that we were fed before we go into the water.

Our group of 3 boarded a small, unassuming wooden boat by the beach with all 4 ALT team members. The boat was steady and worked perfectly fine in these calm waters. The Gili islands were only 10-20 minutes away. Altogether we went to 4 islands and 5 snorkeling locations. While the boat was basic, we were provided the absolute best snorkeling gears, and that made a difference!!! The water was crystal clear, it was such a joy to see corals with colors and not just dead brown skeletons, and there were a great variety of sea life, so colorful, swimming in their own habitats, with the sea anemone moving gracefully with the current, I felt like I was swimming in an aquarium! Amir and Rizky took turn being our scouts in finding interesting sea life for us to observe, like turtle and seahorse, among others. Probably observed that I am not a strong swimmer, after our first snorkel, Amir took my hand and led me in the water. I never asked him to do that, and later I discovered why when I attempted to swim on my own — the fact that I could spend so much time in the water, without getting tired, without a care, was because he was doing the swimming for me! No wonder my other 2 friends, a diver and a strong swimmer in our group always went back to the boat first, there was current and swimming was actually tiring! I didn’t even realize that until I started processing my experience. I truly owed this extraordinary snorkeling experience to Amir and Rizky (although he didn’t take me by the hand, he was always nearby, leading the way).

Thank you, ALT, for everything you had done for us from the bottom of my heart.

We had the most incredible day out with Authentic Lombok Tours snorkeling the remote Southern Gilis. We stopped at 5 different stops and saw pristine coral gardens, thousands of fish, a reef shark, turtles, sea horse and so much more. Everywhere we went we were the only boat there and felt like we had the whole ocean to ourselves. Our guides were incredibly knowledgeable and made the tour such an awesome experience. If you’re looking at exploring in Lombok 10/10 recommend.

Having been warned about the mass crowds and almost engineered snorkelling activities around the more famous Gilli T, Air and Meno we wanted to try to snorkel in quieter more natural waters. We chose Chris based on his amazing reviews, which I can honestly say after spending the day with him and his team would be a 6 or 7 stars if they would let me award that many! The Gilli’s Chris uses are down the south of Lombok and we were truly spoilt with the most amazing coral reefs, tropical fish, seahorses and the amazing close up company of turtles! The spots Chris has carefully selected over the years are out of this world, and it truly felt like another world when in the water. His team continually guide you, picking out hidden gems in the reefs, showing you lobsters, sea snakes and an array of underwater wildlife amongst the vast amount of tropical fish. To top it off they film the day for you and send them through at the end as a keepsake of the day. During the day we did not see another snorkeller and it was just us and the ocean throughout. Included was transport to and from hotel, food on route, drinks throughout and an amazing lunch on a tropical island included. Chris, who is such an interesting and charming host who has led such a varied and amazing life to date even stopped off at a market on the way back to help me get spices and other items we had used earlier that week at his cooking class (another amazing day too!!) if you book one trip on Lombok this must be it, but why would you limit it to one on such a beautiful island.

Probably one of the best experience we've had in a trip. I contacted Chris through WhatsApp and he was very helpful in planning the trip. He goes the extra miles to make sure you're making the most out of the trip. At all times we felt very well taken care of. It was like being hosted by an old friend.

We booked the Rinjani tour and snorkeling tour. The Rinjani tour was very tough. Dedi our guide patiently wait for us each time we need to take a break, at the last and toughest leg of the hike, he even helped me carry my backpack.

The snorkeling tour is really the best I've had so far. Chris and his crews, Amir and Riski took us to all the best spots around Lombok and the Gilis, away from the crowd. The corals and sea life we saw was amazing. The most diverse I've seen among other snorkeling trips I've done.

If you want a memorable experience, you should book the tour with Chris. And yes, he will be a friend, more than just a tour guide.

After doing a lot of research around companies for snorkelling in Lombok, my husband and I made the conscious decision to book with Authentic Lombok Tours.

We were NOT disappointed. Chris and his team ( Amir and another guy ) were really accommodating. Chris took us to the best spots where there are barely any tourists.

The whole tour from start to finish was amazing, Chris is really knowledgable and not only did we go and snorkel in the best locations but we were well informed throughout.

I’ve snorkelled in Egypt, Hawaii, Seychelles, Thailand and Australia, Cairns ( GBR ) and I must say I was hugely surprised and amazed by the reef where Chris took us.
We saw and touched turtles, witnessed seahorses, starfish of different colours, and met nemo and his whole family!

Amir guided us in each location and stayed with my husband who was slightly nervous in the open water. Funnily, my husband said he wouldn’t go in the water but as soon as we reached the first spot for snorkelling Chris guided him and pushed him out of his comfort zone. After this, my husband was the first to jump in the water at each location which shocked me!

If you haven’t already thought about booking with Chris, do it now 😃! This is one experience I absolutely won’t forget about. He’s witty, knowledgable, wise and is also known as Papa Chris.

Fiz (UK)

Well how to start, I don’t even know. Words can’t even sum up how amazing this tour was.

I have been on so many snorkeling trips in the past with my wife and have mostly stayed on the boat whilst my wife has gone off to see the corals, I don’t class myself as a confident swimmer in open water, usually stick to a swimming pool.

After having spent 30mins on the boat with Chris, I decided to give it a go, Chris gave me a personal 1-1 lesson on how to breath and different techniques. He also had one of his colleagues personally follow me to make sure I was ok on my first snorkel stop. I was afraid but jumped straight in after following his guidance.

All I can say, it’s the best thing I have done, after the first swim I feel so confident that I swam the rest of the boat stops. I’m so glad we chose to go with Chris, otherwise I would have never have seen so much coral, fishes and turtles. He takes you to the quieter and unique stops and personalizes the trip so much. The stop for food was brilliant also, some of the best Nasi Goreng I have had.

I would highly recommend this trip rather than go with one of the larger groups as Chris also has so much knowledge of the area.

Snorkeling mania tour. If you visit Lombok, its a must in your journey. Chris, Riski and Amar are an amazing team that help you in everything. Its not a standar tour, its just passion about what they do and its a present that they want to share with you all they knowledge about sealife and where to find the most interest places. The whole day was amazing. You can see some different kind of fishes, star fishes,turtles...
Chris is an amazing person, full of kindness and he took care about us all the time. Thanks Chris and his team for share us a fantastic sealife far of the crowded of the famous Gilis. If we want to keep nice places as Lombok, we have to start to pay attention to nice tours like this one and stop to give money to the other tours that kill the nature and dont give you a real experience. Best wishes, Pedro Calvino
