Bali to Gili Gede Destination Reviews

booking sercice good ,speedboat was very bad
Ferry Speedboat, Semaya One, May 17, 2023
Official time of departure was half hour after the one we booked at 12go Asia. Left actually more than one hour too late. We were not in their list during check in so took them 15 minutes to add us. Boat stoped in the middle of the ocean and the engines were of for five minutes. Arrived at 6 pm instead of 3.30 pm. But the boat was spacious and good AC.
Ferry Speedboat, Golden Queen Fast Boat, Apr 23, 2023
Overall this was good value for the money. The people from Golden Queen did a good job telling you were to go and told us where to pay the harbor fee that was not included in the ticket. Everything was on time, even arrived 15 minutes earlier to Bangsal Pier. No air condition in the boat, so it was a bit warm. The boat was full, but the seats were quite big so no problem.
Ferry Speedboat, Golden Queen Fast Boat, Apr 17, 2023
Wasn't horrendous but it wasn't clear where to change our voucher for a ticket and on the boat the door to the main cabin (where everyone was sat) was locked which was strange especially because that door was labelled as emergency exit! Someone was feeling really hot and faint and they were banging on the door....but no response from any of the crew!
Ferry Speedboat, Kurnia Jaya Fast Boat, Feb 14, 2023
boat ride was good. Information on where and how to check in was lacking.
Ferry Speedboat, Eka Jaya Fast Boat (Eka Jaya Fast Boat), Jan 7, 2023
We were a little skeptical after all the reviews. But have to say in the end that everything went smoothly and we had a good trip to Lombock. However, we went on a boat from Manta Express and not as originally booked with Karuniya Jaya.

A bit delayed, but generally fine and all run pretty smoothly.
Ferry Speedboat, Eka Jaya Fast Boat (Eka Jaya Fast Boat), Sep 22, 2022
Trip was delayed by 20min, then it took 3.5-4 hours instead of claimed 2. staff "adapted" to loud and rude western tourists and behave like such, drinking beer, smoking, and making rude comments at women. Very loud music on the top deck. Luggage is handled very roughly.
Ferry Speedboat, Eka Jaya Fast Boat (Eka Jaya Fast Boat), Aug 30, 2022
When we opened our suitcase in the hotel after our boat ride, everything was wet. It definitly happened on the boat ride, because the luggage was stored in the front of the boat. Very unfortunate. The boat transfer itself was beside this very nice.
Ferry High Speed Ferry, Gili Getaway (Gili Getaway), Jul 31, 2022
I was travelling to Bangsal but the boat stopped off at Gili Island first. My luggage was throw off and I had to ask the guys to put it back on the boat. If I wasn't paying attention, I would have lost my luggage!! Maybe, a sticker placed on the luggage at the time of booking stating the destination would help avoid problems like this.
