Absolutely fantastic trip. Great guide with many interesting facts. Trip covered some great sights as well. Plenty of possibilities to socialize also. All in all a fantastic value for money!

Varied and well organised, with beautiful scenery and villages. Long day as tour ends at the opposite end of the island and it can take a long time to get back.

Easy pick up near accommodation, great crew onboard, great choice of activities or chose to just chill in style. Very enjoyable day for all ages!

Pavel is a very dedicated tour guide who took care of everything and explained well. The composition of the day trip was varied and varied
