Would definitely recommend this tour! Ivan was awesome. He had great knowledge of the city and history and made the 3hr kayak tour fun with a good pace. Also the thought of wine and crackers at the end helped keep the hanger at bay.

Loved the tour, tour guide Davor was fantastic, he was funny, very knowledgeable. Was just a shame it was far to windy to go on the boat to lokrum island.

We had a fantastic time, our boat skipper and guide was absolutely brilliant, the caves were stunning, just fantastic all round, thanks

A view you won’t forget. Reminds me of lake Como. The guide was excellent in explaining what to do and introductions.

Great day out would highly recommend. So relaxing and loads of food an drink onboard. Very friendly and helpful staff
