AMAZING, WAY better than expected!! Dante was our skipper-guide, super friendly and accommodating, spoke good English and was amazing. He would offer to take pictures for us, helped us with steep/rocky paths, gave us facts and indepth history about each place or attraction and he was lovely to be around! Also offered water, jackets and alcohol at the end! DEFINITELY BRING TRAINERS/SNEAKERS a lot of walking, not complaining, but walking up to the top of a steepish island wearing sliders/crocs isnt the best idea haha

A great trip. An old atmospheric ship, food in order, wine and rakija without limits, at the end a delicious watermelon. It is a pity that the breaks on the islands are so short, because the islands are really beautiful. 1 stop, on the island we go to the viewpoint, you can swim in the Mir lake and jump into the sea from the cliffs. On our second stop on another island, we ate a delicious fish and also had a moment to swim. I recommend!

The tour was great and we really enjoyed it! However, you should pack warm and windproof clothing, as the wind combined with the cool morning temperatures can be very uncomfortable.

The sun was hidden behind clouds but the trip was fun and lots of information given

Very nice experience, the guide very nice it's worth it
