What people are saying about Elaphiti Islands

Sadly, my wife wasn’t well enough for us to do the trip. The organisers I have to say tried very kindly to give us some more options. They didn’t have to do this as it was last minute that we cancelled. In the end, sadly we couldn’t do the kind options and they even gave us a 50% refund. I have to say this was a very kind gesture. It obviously shows that this company is not all about making the money and more about making experiences for people. I totally and honestly recommend any trips with this company. You won’t be Disappointed. A Big Thanks to Ina

A brilliant trip. You will be picked up, you get very delicious food, soft drinks and wine until you drop. It goes to three different islands, all of which are very quiet and guarantee a great view of the sea. The crew on board was always attentive and concerned about the well-being of the customer. For 50 euros you have a great day in 8 hours.
