Gili Air to Bali Destination Reviews

Travelled with Semaya One to Gili Air and back. Both times the boat left on time. The ride takes 2,5 hours included stop at Gili T and Lombok on the way back. First boat was more comfy than the second one, had a very bumpy way back. They could be more communicative about the traveltime, stops and where to put your luggage ( gili T was stored the back of the boat, gili Air in the front)
