The tour was wonderful. The islands are beautiful and the water is breathtaking. For those who like diving, at the first stop, jump into the sea. I left it until the last moment and realized that I should have stayed in the water more 😄 The boat was calm and the meals were ok for the cost. It’s an immersion into the local culture, nothing too fancy. I personally thought it was very good, precisely for that reason. The tour lasts all day. Take sunscreen (I thought it was strange because Europeans don't use it lol). Finally, I highly recommend the tour.

everything was perfect, the whole family was happy, the best day of our 10 pumpkin holidays and this was not the only trip, Kornati is beautiful, especially the cliffs, the views are amazing. Greetings from two lovely ladies who took great care of the entire group. best regards and thank you

excellent tour guide, very informative in a range of languages, meal of choice supplied on board the boat, saw dolphins . we had 2.5 hours on saint jerolim island which i could have done without as there was nothing there, would have preferred to get off on brijuni

Very relaxed tour to beautiful bays with the opportunity to swim. The grotto is well worth seeing and we also saw dolphins. The team was very nice and explained everything in several languages. Can definitely recommend the tour.

Great organization. A great experience for my companions who were using this type of attraction for the first time. I recommend.
