We did both the full day (May 29) and the half day (May 30) tours and had a great time. Hiking Padar island (part of the full day trip) is a must do. But we actually enjoyed the Komodo dragon experience more on Rinca island (part of the half day trip) than on Komodo island (where we saw dragons also, but our trek seemed to be cut short for some reason?). The pick up and drop off service is nice although they were 30 mins late picking us up early for the full day trip -could have been another 30 mins of sleep! The staff and guides were very professional. Boats were nice—very speedy. Food and snacks were ok but nothing amazing. Overall a great way to see the islands by day trip from Labuan Bajo!

Did both the full and half day cruises..

Full day gives you the opportunity to cover a lot of things and great if on a short time frame. Padar Island is spectacular and best to get their as we early as possible to beat the rush of other tourists. We got there when it was bearable with not too many people around. Komodo Island was great as saw plenty of Komodo Dragons on the medium walk (note, you won't be there long enough to do the long one). The pink beach they take you too is amazing too! (note, the photos attached are from the full day)

Half day covers Rinca which is nice and on the whole a pleasant experience.

The tour guides I had were a pleasure, friendly and helpful where possible! The lunches (rice, some veg and chicken) are not bad and snacks (banana and little cakes) pretty good.

I had only one day to see the Komodo dragons and this gives you the option of an early morning hike (amazing views), komodo dragons and 3 snorkles.

If you have little time and want to pack as much as possible into it then I would highly recommend these guys. It is ofcourse more expensive then getting the slow boat to Komodo but you are paying for a completely different experience.

Had a nice half day tour today. Didn’t see dragons in wild life on Rinca (however saw several near the entrance). Ranger said that it was too hot for them - who knows Snorkeling was fantastic! The last island showed us very nice view of surroundings.
There were only 3 of us on a small boat so it looked more ore less like private tour!
Lunch was nice too. Guide was very friendly.

Definitely recommend them

If you have only 2 days to visit komodo and wants to visit as many site as possible at good pace and guiding, Alba cruise will do this for you by joining their half and full days tours which includes trekking and scuba diving. I had a memorable 2 days by joining Alba cruise. Also, honorable mention to Alberto. Thumbs Up.
