I went on this kayak trip on October 18th. It was a clear sky with very calm water. Kayaking beneath the walls of Dubrovnik was an amazing sight and one that you otherwise don't get unless you're out on the water. Kayaking along he cliffs and then around Lokrum island was a nice 3hour trip. I'm in my 30's and would consider myself somewhere between a beginner and an intermediate kayaker. I found this trip to be a comfortable workout, but depending on your experience and especially the weather, this may be different for others. My guide was from Adventure Dubrovnik and her name is Tonka. She was a SUPERB guide! Extremely knowledgeable. Out of the 3 hours on the trip, we spent at least 2.5 hours talking about the history, geography, wine, and culinary traditions of Croatia as we paddled. I love all of those subjects and Tonka was willing to indulge my curiosity. That was probably the best part - learning so much while kayaking in a beautiful place.
If you're looking for a different way to experience Dubrovnik and love a bit of activity rather than just reading a guide book, then this is the trip for you. My husband & I chose a very hot day to escape the city. The guides from the very beginning were helpful, especially as we were complete kayak novices. This trip had everything, a bit of activity, but not too much, wonderful views, interesting facts from our guides, cooling sea, rest stops with the ability to swim (but for my non swimmer husband, it wasn't required) - they even threw in a nice lunch! I think it was a really good duration too - long enough to feel like you'd got good value for money & actually achieved something, but not so much you were exhausted. Honestly I loved it so much I'd definitely go again. I didn't see anyone in our group who didn't enjoy themselves and it was all very well organised and easy for us.
Good day trip to Montenegro. Pick up was on time, however, I wish the company would have contacted me to let me know in advance this was not going to be an english tour (which I booked), but spanish. It was not a pb for me, as I understand spanish and the guide/driver made sure to also translate for me part of the commentary, which is very much appreciated. However, if I would have been with any of my friends, this would be an issue, as none of them understands spanish. Apart from that, everything was wonderful, Montenegro is stunning! I was expecting the boat ride to be a bit longer though, as this is advertised as "boat trip to Kotor and Perast" tour. Small boat was just to Our Lady of the Rocks island and then from there to Perast. Perast and Kotor are both wonderful and have a relaxed athmosphere.
The guide was full of energy and jammed packed with local knowledge. A GOT super fan, he knew all the best places to visit. But most of all, he was hugely knowledgeable of the old city and it’s place in history. One of the best tour guides I’ve ever had the pleasure to listen to.
It was a great day out with our instructor. We learned a lot about Lokrum Island and had a great view of the Dubrovnik walls and the sunset. Will do this again on our next visit to Dubrovnik.
