An amazing excursion! Super recommended. The exceptional guide and driver. For the ferry I recommend biography 1 or 2 hours before to avoid unnecessary harm. It is true that you go a little fast, but it is also the most touristic and demanded right now, considering that you have to return on the last ferry. Everything is very well organized and the food is abundant and delicious!

Highly recommended excursion. We saw many highlights and a great tour guide. Unfortunately, our ferry arrived 30 minutes late right at the beginning... so the Serbian excursion was a bit rushed. Still a total recommendation

Unforgettable experience, very well organized, our guide Rosi very professional and friendly, makes you fall in love with the island, highly recommended
