Loved this trip, very relaxing after an active day for the kids on the waterslide at our resort. Great to see parts of Pula we wouldn’t have without an organised trip - esp loved Red Island for its clear water and quiet beach, and Rovinj was just beautiful, even the kids enjoyed it! Also enjoyed the mackerel meal , and the kids loved the unexpected activity of feeding leftovers to the seagulls Staff very attentive, highly recommended this trip.
