  • Excellent value for money, very long day in a speedboat.Blue Caves not enough time spent there, about a 20min tour inside the caves. Lunch stop was too long and not enough time on Hvar only 1hr.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • The boat itself was nice, and the tour was cool, but they put us with a bunch of hungover and later, completely trashed twenty-something year olds. We couldn't even go to the blue or green caves because of the wind, but they didn't really have a back-up plan, which is a little crazy considering these caves are their selling point for this excursion and this wind issue is far from being a rare thing to happen. They instead drove around a little extra and told us that the wine tasting was a treat because we didn't get to go the caves. This of course was a lie since it's supposed to be part of the tour to begin with. We had fun at the few places we actually went, but felt a little underwhelmed by the whole thing. The pack of drunkards on the boat didn't help either and managed to frustrate the wine-tasting lady so much she said she will seriously kill them if they don't shut up.

  • The only things worthwhile on the tour are the blue cave and Hvar Town. There is a stop in the blue lagoon which is ok, but only having 1 hour in Hvar after 3 hours on a small island with 2 restaurants and a beach was frustrating. Wine tasting felt like a sales pitch.

  • This was my favorite thing we did while in Croatia! Our tour guide was friendly and personable. The boat was comfortable and the captain did a great job navigating the seas. The Blue Cave is a must see and Hvar is absolutely exquisite. I highly recommend taking this tour!

  • Great trip, long day but such unbelievable sights to see !

  • Such disappointment. The place is beautiful but Choose different agency. Because of weather the route changed last minute.. but it was not the issue...The guide is the worse Ms Kate should really look for different job...rude English, didn't say any information about the locations was in a rush each stop didn't check how we were doing at all different member in the group had no-polite issues in one of the stop and the guide wasn't even there, the crew didn't respect the elders needs in the return way the boat was in a high speed and scaring people but even with complaining the crew completely ignore us , the guide give wrong payment information in one of mandatory restaurant stop on top of all of that the guide brought in a middle of the day a boyfriend on board and chilly out half of the trip like it was her private day off.... we were not the customers we were a inconvenient guest. My experience was very unpleasant.

  • This trip started off shaky with the blue cave being cancelled which isn't uncommon in September. This was ok as the beaches were amazing and the whole experience had the potential to be beautiful. Our guide Kate was very unhelpful, she was rude, uncommunicative, didn't care and told us minimal information about where to go and how to enjoy our time. She never spoke to use once or asked us how each place was. She pretty much sat at the back of the boat on her phone. We were told lunch destination would have eftpos and it didn't we waited ages for food eating two hours on a very average lunch. When returning to the boat her boyfriend joined us and they spent the remaining 5 hours of the day kissing hugging and sharing food at the back of the boat. There were two elderly people who were on our group. One of them didn't even get a proper seat and was so nervous on a high speed boat and no effort was made to ensure they were feeling safe or cared for. Overall it was highly disappointing and we will be going to the company to complain today as the shop was closed when we returned from the day. The guide was rude, unsympathetic and didn't fulfil what was promised at the beginning of the day as a replacement tour. we were given cheap and yuck wine in plastic cups to skull quickly before our final departure only because a few people complained. Kate said she didn't know about the free wine tasting. They gave us a snack but were four snack short so four people missed out. No effort was made to introduce group members or create a great tour experience. I was very dissapointed and it was essentially a glorified taxi service. there wasn't even any point in kate coming for the day as the skipper could just took us around and it would of been the same

  • We had to reschedule our trip because of high tides.
    Even on the second day, the case was same. An alternate trip was provided.
    It was just a hopping tour without much information on the places we were visiting from the tour guide.
    Most of the time we were on our own.

  • The blue cave is very great to see, but this tour has a lot of waiting around time. Depending on how quickly your tour gets to the blue cave you might be waiting up to 2 hours before your group goes into the cave. Swimming at the blue lagoon is great! I would recommend not to pay for the lunch at the restaurant on the island they take you too, as it is very expensive for what you get and you go to the island of Havr after and you could eat there. It is a very long day!
