It was a wonderful trip! Have looked at everything according to the route and had enough time. We could also choose lunch in a nice fish restaurant or a "fast food" restaurant. Looking back, I would opt for the second restaurant, as it took a long time to prepare in the fish restaurant. But food was delicious. The sandy beaches were beautiful and the conclusion along the city walls was a dream. ps you can also get off at the city walls and let the rest of the day end there :) Our guides were extremely personable, I can only recommend them!

Awesome experience. Beautiful sunset. Bit colder than I thought due to slight wind blowing. Slightly smaller group than some of the other tours out at the same time which I think is much better. Definitely bring watershoes as the cave's beach has sharp pebbles and rocks where you get into the water.. Unfortunately not much to see when snorkeling and only goggles available due to covid (no snorkels)

We were looking for a city walls tour but it was confusing especially with the existance of many tour companies, till we found this tour that had a convinient starting time. We enjoyed it and the guid shared with us a lot of the history behind the great walls and made the tour worth it.

Davor was an absolutely brilliant guide! Not only very knowledgeable but so obviously enthused & motivated.about the subject. He went above & beyond what could reasonably have been expected. An outstanding guide, person & experience. Thank you Davor!

Educational, picturesque, fun, physical activity. Great way to see and learn about then old town in a couple of hours.
