Very hot and many people had health issues because of the heat and humidity. This trip was hazardous for many people. I enjoyed seeing the Dragons and other wildlife and would do it again.

Great experience. Dragons are definitely impressive. Due to the weather conditions Viking should have made sure people understood the difficulty of the walk, heat, dirt, uneven ground, etc. There should have been areas setup as water/rest stations. Viking should have taken their passenger group geographic better when planning this and taken that and the unusual weather conditions into consideration when planning/doing any excursion. Read Less

Guides pointed out all the plant, insect and animal species as we walked. Got to the pool that had the Dragons. Amazing.

We chose to snorkel at the pink beach instead of seeing dragons, and we were very happy we did that. The crowds on the pier waiting to march through the jungle in the heat to see the Komodo dragons were daunting, and we learned that several people had more than a little trouble with the heat. However, our beach wasn't crowded and was pleasant. The snorkel equipment available wasn't of the highest quality, but it worked OK. The underwater sights were just OK, but it was great to be in the water! Read Less

We booked ourselves on a tour organised by Carnival. It was to see the dragons and go the the Pink Beach.(you were not allowed to get off on this island unless you had a tour booked). In the tour description provided by the cruise ship there was no mention of fitness level required to do this tour. We have quite a few passengers doing the tour who struggled with the conditions given their physical abilities. Our walk around the island was good (very hot though). We then travelled to Pink Beach by a small boat. The pier and steps to embark on our trip to the beach were broken in parts, slippery and very steep. Once we had spent an hour at the beach we went back to our boat to transfer us back to the Splendours tender. Out small boat broke down and we were transferred to another boat. Unfortunately by the time we returned to the main pier the tide had gone out considerable. This meant there was a 1-1.5 metre drop from the pier to the boat. Passengers were hauled roughly from the boat up onto the pier, with at least 2 people bruising their legs. Read Less

We did a ship tour, saw 6 Dragons including a baby one up in a tree, Timor Deer, & a wild pig. Guides & Ranger were very helpful explaining about dragons & other animals and trees on the island.

One of the things I wanted to see on the Bali leg. Only I took this tour because it required a lot of hiking. There are several park ranger assigned to protect the tour which offered two walking tours - a short and long tour. Both included the gathering point where Komodo Dragons gather. A short distance after it the group was offered a shorter route back. About half opted for it and the rest of us took the longer tour. The longer tour was more rugged and included narrow trails, hill climbing and at some points hikers had to be very careful of slipping on lose gravel hiking downhill. To be honest it really wasn’t worth the hike. Once we we reconnected with the short trail we saw fauna and wild life, including baby Komodo Dragons scampering around avoiding hungry adults. Read Less

Beautiful setting. This tour was also independent. The Komodo Island itself is disappointing. Obvious the 4 komodo dragons we saw were watered and most likely fed to keep them around for the tourist. Reality we only needed to go as far as the dragon watering station. For nobody supposedly living on the island, they need to clean up around the house located there. Take care of the garbage. The Shopping area is horrendous!! I do not appreciate the aggressive in-your-face sales. Read Less
