What people are saying about Adriatic Sea

Excellent half-day out, English speaking hosts and very clear instructions during the trip to both islands. The only thing that we had to watch out for was the meeting point - there was no-one there at the specified time, but it was only 100 yards from the boat and easy to spot. There is an hour on each island, plenty of time to see around the area and pick up some souvenirs. Would definitely recommend.

Well arranged Except for no marking for start Some one with flag of tour present would help Every one was lost trying to find the right queue
