Croatia tour reviews

The tour was excellent, the service on the boat was great, crew were excellent and the itinerary was mostly good. The only note for improvement would be some of the ports have restrictions on timing in terms of when you can dock. At these ports we then had to dock close by and stay on the boat. I understand the restriction but it would be great to have had the option to have water taxi's come by and for those who wanted to get to the island earlier to have that option.”
A lovely holiday and Jelena and her colleagues were very good...couldn't fault them.
No real negative feedback except that the breakfasts were a little repetitive.
We noted that the chef did a remarkable job in a very small galley area.
We would certainly look at a repeat cruise but next time a little earlier in the season.....the weather was definirely becoming autumnal in Croatia in early September, which mistakenly we hadn't factored in.”
I am so pleased we booked this boat trip, met some really nice people, food was amazing thanks to the chef and allowed us to visit lots of different places. The boat really made our holiday. Tour guide very helpful and offered lots of options and activities. ”
