Bali to Gili Gede Destination Reviews

Wahana’s staff was super helpful despite an issue encountered with 12Go’s booking management! Thanks to Aldo and his colleagues we were able to board on the boat on a super comfortable ride! (Most comfortable boas ride out of all my trips in SE Asia)

Booked a ticket, arrived and was told it was overbooked, got on the boat in the end but they made it quite stressful. A/C barely worked so it was insanely hot on board.. Cheap though..

Boat was overbooked, seats were extremely cramped with my seat not having a seat back, poor airflow / AC. Friendly enough staff, no safety presentation. Luckily the weather was good enough to sit on the top deck for space and fresh air. Luggage handling was very casual, make sure they don’t offload your luggage at the wrong stop. Harbour ‘donation’ of IDR10k enforced by locals was quite abrupt. Heard other fast boat operators had nicer boats, and better service.

Great boat, great A/C and comfortable seats
Ferry Speedboat, Wahana Virendra Fast Boat, Nov 21, 2023
Good company, nothing much to complain. We took the early ride at 8:30 in the morning and left pretty much on time (+10min). The staff was friendly and professional and - despite what other comments said - we arrived at Bangsal Lombok as the last stop after 2.5 hours. The ferry gets very crammed after Gili T with loud party tourists (as you'd expect from that island) but the first half of the ride was excellent, comfy and calm. What could be improved is the expected check-in time of 1hour prior.. it's a bit much, especially in the morning (there's a kinda pricey restaurant just next to the company's office).

Ferry was totally crowded and it took 3h to get to lombok even though it said it will only take 1,5h online

Smooth organisation, very kind and helpful service. Travel was relaxed, will book Wijaya again!

The pickup worked great for this I would give 5 stars. The journey itself was also no problem. We were at the pier around 8. I booked exactly this transportation because it said I would be in Lombok at 9:30. But then I was very rude to learn that our boat would not leave before 10 am and that we would actually arrive in Lombok at 1:30 pm. I find that 4 hours later than it said on my ticket very cheeky. It's not a problem if everything takes longer, but then the ticket and the information should also include the correct times. We were at the pier in Bali at 8 a.m. - if the boat had left promptly, we would have been in Lombok around 9:30-10. At this point we had only just left Bali. Unfortunately, this is the first time I have given a negative and detailed review. When I asked why the wrong information was being sold on the ticket, I was made to feel very stupid and was told in an unfriendly way that I could stay if the times didn't suit me.
