Boris was our host for the afternoon and he didn't disappoint. Chatty, personable and informative, he made the trip. A journey around the local islands with stop-offs for walking, stunning views and swimming. A lovely trip with a final visit to a tavern for a beer before retuning to Zadar as the sun set beautifully over the distant hills. Great experience, good customer service and excellent value.

Our guide was welcoming and full of knowledge about the local area. He also offered the group flexibility in the timings spent at each location, which meant the tour didn't feel rushed. The first stop was a beautiful bay where we were able to swim and snorkel, then we went on to the town of Precko where there were opportunities to swim and get lunch. Finally, we circled round Zadar on the way back. The half day tour suited us as we only had limited time in Zadar, therefore, I would highly recommend.

We really enjoyed our boat trip, despite the storm. Boris was calm, reassuring and skilled at handling the boat. We stayed a little longer on Osljak island to allow the storm to pass however our boat trip then continued as planned and wasn’t cut short at all. Boris gave us some information on the history of the islands and suggested walking routes. It was well worth doing and I would definitely recommend.
