Split is beautiful and this was a great little get away. If you're looking for an in depth tour this isn't it but if you want to go out on the boat with a small intimate group it is a good time. Bring drinks and/or snacks though as sadly no water was available on board as stated in the info. Luca is one heck of a driver and even let our friend help out on the way back!

Maya & Mario were absolutely amazing, the best 2 guides you could ask for. They were fun and entertaining, offered wind breakers which we gladly took! The whole day was fun and cultured with plenty of good recommendations of where to visit and where to eat, couldn’t recommend this enough

The guide’s knowledge of the area and its details, as well as general knowledge of history, was interesting to listen to. The route also provided an appropriate exercise challenge. One can only imagine what the biggest waterfalls will look like in early spring or during the rainy season.

Maggie and Kiki were great guides! We had a great tour, great music, and we even got to see dolphins! The time spent on the boat is quite a bit but that is the only downside to this tour.

We came closer to the history of Mostar with excellent local guide.
