Really enjoyed this and would highly recommend! Our guide picked us up promptly, he was so lovely and telling us Croatia history on the way. The tuk tuk felt very safe, fantastic views and really enjoyed feeling the breeze rather than stuck in a bus which I feel would have struggled on those hills. We had interim stops to take photos and have a sherry. The skywalk was incredible views. My mum is very afraid of heights and was very anxious before the activity - however she loved it and went around 4 times! The guides were happy to take photos and we never felt rushed. Would 100% recommend anyone to book and the experience felt well worth the money.

It was a challenging and at the same time the most beautiful holiday experience of my life. Everything went extremely professionally and safely. The guides speak different languages, are cool, have fun and are always fully engaged. Safety is the top priority and the instructions are presented clearly. All participants had a lot of fun. Thank you very much for this unique experience. I can recommend this event to anyone who is not afraid of heights.

It was a great experience, even for completely inexperienced people! Good support, precise explanations, great opportunities to take photos/film yourself!

It was a great trip, with great weather and very entertaining Giudes. Thomas in particular always had a funny saying on his lips.

Last tour for the season, so we where a small group. Coolbox with water, great views and swimmingplaces. 5/5.
