Beautiful scenery, locations, and water. Friendly staff. They gave us a second meal inbetween the second and third stop, which surprised me since I didn't remember reading it in any description. Bringing your own snacks doesn't hurt, especially being under the sun and on a boat all day.

This kind of guided Tour through Zadar is definitely different to what you are used to. Really funny and interesting. A Mix of standard tour with the virtual reality elements concluded. Absolutely recommend to do this :)

Guide was great (knowledgeable and friendly) lunch was good, great route around the park was chosen. Transportation was good but instructions for pick up were a bit unclear

Great nature and great guide Sandra. She was attentive made sure the pace was good for all of us. Fantastic day. Do it you won’t regret it. Needs good walking shoes.

Wonderful 4 hour boat trip around the islands around Zadar. In between, we took a dip in a beautiful bay. Friendly captain!
