Short variant because there is a character limit? Absolute recommendation! 10/10 satisfied! Get a WhatsApp on the day of the event for the consultation and with a Google Maps link. Received very friendly on site. Clean and dry kayaks despite previous group. Super friendly, professional and funny guides (Katarina and Tihana). Very good and understandable English from both of them. On the tour: Very relaxed ride - no rushing or chasing. Pleasant conversations and great entertainment from Katarina. Few fish (because they are active during the day) but beautiful landscapes at night with a mystical unique effect due to the glowing boats! To drink you could choose between beer, wine and water (ice-cold). Pictures were taken by the guide while driving and sent via Dropbox link immediately after the end. All in all we are very satisfied and will definitely visit the two girls again for one of their tours!

The tour was really super nice. Our guide was very friendly and everything went well from an organizational point of view. It was a great route with many beautiful opportunities to observe the underwater world. The absolute highlight was the cave at the end of the tour. We recommend.

It was a great experience, would recommend it everybody!! Even for beginners:-) The tour guide Thiana was very friendly! I would do it again

A wonderful experience with great caves and lots of fish. Tip: take the 7pm tour because the fish are even more active there.

An unbelievably great experience with great guides
