There were only 7 of us and the guide was superb. She knows her job and does it passionately. Very friendly and took the time to explain and gave us time to enjoy the beautiful views. This trip is definitely recommended!

No bad surprises, everything is as described. Food and drinks "basic" but almost at will, small boat a little dated but which gives it all its charm. A great value for money

Fantastic way to see Zadar and the surrounding islands by boat. I would highly recommend it, great staff who were very friendly and kept us well fed and watered. 10/10
