One of the best speedboat trips! Our skipper Mathias was very nice, talkative and positive. He was very knowledgeable about the places he visited. The lunch was delicious and the views were unforgettable. When we return to Albania, we will definitely use TripMe.Today services again. Best regards, Magda, Sandra, Karolina and Adam

It is obvious that the guide knows the area. Very good experience to do something relatively inexpensive in the area and take advantage of the day on the beaches of the peninsula, which is so beautiful that it is a shame that it stays for so few hours!

The boat driver was pretty casual and easy going. Explained about the places we went to and was able to answer all our questions

Amazing! Highly recommend tour guide was excellent and swimming in the caves was a real highlight!

Everything was great, the guide was a great guy :)
