    We liked the tour alot! The serenity, the sense of duty, the competence and the specialist knowledge of Boris were 1A. There was a lot of laughter and, in addition to the many impressions, we also made new friends! Great thing for open people who want to experience something new. Have fun :) Thank you Boris!

    Boris has been one of the best guide we ever had. If I have to recommend 1 activity to do in Korcula, I would definitively go for that one! The circuit to the different islands is easy enough for beginners but still a good work out of 15-30 minutes between the islands. We were on a double kayak and had a lot of fun. The landscape is stunning, the islands are for some of them uninhabited. Boris is a very knowledgeable local guide. Along the way, he gave us a amazing tour (historical, botanical and cultural) and we also had the chance to taste with him, the delicious white wine Grk, which is only grown in Lumbarda. I can't recommend the Half-Day Kayaking tour with Boris strongly enough! This day was the highlight of our honeymoon!
