Boat, staff and food are great. Rovinj is lovely and our guide was very good, but a she only had 45 mins to take us round I think she felt a bit rushed trying to give us all the information she has. That said, it was very informative and even though we'd been to Rovinj before, we still enjoyed the tour. Lim Fjord is pretty to sail through. Red island is very nice, but there is little to do if you don't want to swim or soak up the sun. There are paths through the woods to walk round both islands, and the mausoleum is pretty to walk up to. The trip was very nice overall, but it makes for a long day and you have to make sure you have all with you that you'll need for the day. You don't have to carry it all round with you all day though as it can all be left on the boat, though this didn't stay moored up in Rovinj, only at Red Island so be aware of that.

A wonderful day, because a perfectly organized trip. Nice people. Service at the highest level. The guide in Rovinj is a hilarious, charming woman, it is worth taking advantage of and learning a little about this beautiful town. Delicious food, we ordered vege and it was grilled vegetables, although it must be admitted that the fish looked amazing on the neighbors' plate. On the ship you can buy coffee, drinks, beer, etc. On the way back, delicious pancakes with chocolate and cookies for HRK 20 were offered. It's worth taking some cash with you. The toilet on the ship is very clean. Beautiful views We highly recommend. Thank you to the crew and we hope to come back someday.

This Trip was just amazing. We were accompanied with live gentle music, the girl sang beautifuly and a nice guitarist. The walk in Rovinj was beautiful and informative. The tourist guide was very interesting while telling the facts and the stories about the city. Then we had relaxing sunbathing on the Island. The food was okay. So I would totally recommend it.
