What people are saying about Rovinj

Great day trip with nice guides, good food and a varied program. For the price, the trip is highly recommended. For lunch on the Lim Canal there was a choice of grilled fish or meat (chicken and bratwurst) with coleslaw, tomatoes and bread, which tasted delicious. They even provided complimentary wine and water. The stops in Rovinj and Vrasar are definitely worth a visit. Both swimming in the sea and shopping were possible. Unfortunately, drinks on board are a bit expensive (small water €2.50), which is usually the case. We liked it very much, gladly again!

Very good guide who could tell well and had a lot of information overalles, but dress warmly, it is a lot colder! It is also better to take an umbrella with you, which saves a lot of costs there. It rained for a while. Nice to have done and to see more of Croatia! It was a very long day but worth discovering something new.

I liked that the kayak had comfortable seats. it was easy going. I would suggest bringing a snack as well as own snorkel :)

Fantastic trip - lovely refreshments - very friendly staff - saw lots of dolphins and had a lovely swim

Die Tour hat Spaß gemacht. Auf den Inseln hatte man Zeit sich diese anzuschauen oder baden zu gehen.
