This was a well organized activity from start to finish, our guide (Dean) gave clear instructions and guidance before setting off. Never tried kayaking before but quickly got the hang of it, having been paired with a delightful American lady who had kayaked before so just followed her lead. At various pauses along the route Dean gave us an interesting and informative history of Lokrum island and Dubrovnik. The trip lasted approximately 2 1/2 hours , with a half hour beach stop for a sandwich, swimming, snorkeling and for those brave enough cliff jumping (no I didn't, I'm old 67, and don't like heights). A thoroughly enjoyable afternoons activity.

Good: Nives, our tour guider was very informative and knowledgeable for the area. Bad: Bear in mind, there will be three border crossings each way, and it took a long time to complete all

Disco was a great tour guide, sharing interesting stories and history during our drive. Mostar was very interesting and the falls were beautiful. Would definitely recommend!

Great service, well cared for horses. Sure-footed, willing to run and well-behaved. You can tell the animals are doing very well.

Amazing experience we will definitely be returning to do again
