Croatia tour reviews

We had an absolute fantastic time. Crew were great and other people on board. We were upgraded not sure why which includes a captain's dinner and guided walk in Dubrovnik. Even though my daughter was the youngest by far on board as she is only 20 we couldn't fault a thing. Meals were fantastic and thus is the best way to see Croatia. Would highly recommend it and already planning another trip back”
Jelena on the boat guided us on a day to day basis.... she was utterly wonderful ”
The tour was better then I expected. The crew on Skarda were awesome! They truly cared about the guests and making certain that they had a wonderful holiday. With respect t the boat, the crew did an amazing job of keeping it very clean and in tip top shape.
That being said, I think the next time I would do this trip, I would look into upgrading to another boat which had a bit larger cabins especially the size of the bathroom. ”
