Bali, Flores & Komodo Explorer

If youre looking to get in three of the Indonesian islands on a trip that combines proven highlights with off-the-beaten-path gems, youre in the right place. Komodo is obviously well-known for its dragons (gigantic lizards, really, but whos nit-picking?), but theres so much more to the island and neighbouring Flores than just massive fauna. And when it comes to Bali an island steeped in culture, excellent food, and talented artists there are near-limitless pristine beaches, temples, and jungles to explore. With your accommodation and transport arranged by CEOs, this well-packed adventure offers up the perfect blend of the highlights and free time.
