This was a very enjoyable trip with our hosts Sunny and Nico. Very informative and we had a blast with the banter. It was about 12 degrees so some advice for others, do not wear shorts and a tshirt. You will be cold! Very interesting places to see. A must to book if you are visiting Split!

Great experience and outstandingly beautiful place to go for the day, we also went to the town of Skradin for a walk and food was amazing Mario our guide was amazing too

No regrest at all after experiencing such magic beauty, plus the guide is a very nice guy, and we were drove safe in a very comforta le bus ... it's totally worth it!

Great activity!! It's worth the detour. We hesitated with Plitvice Park, a little further, but we did not regret our choice!

Adrian was very knowledgeable and witty. It was an amazing tour with lots to learn about the city. Highly recommended!
