Well organised tour with friendly guide. Comfortable boat ride ( We didn’t have the skinny horse that others have described!), lots of great sights with ample time to visit around. Good value for money. We even saw some dolphins.

Epic day touring the islands with Philip.! He’s a masterful and fun skipper. We got to see all the amazing sites with time to explore independently on 3 islands. My husband HATES being on boats and even he had a blast!!!

Great experience with a very pleasant skipper and guide. The blue cave on the island of Bisevo is one of the must-sees and the exploration of the islands like Hvar, Vis,… are little gems. We recommend this excursion.

It was awesome! Weather wasn’t great but made the most of it and had cool, interesting stops. Boat ride was a lot of fun! Our guides Phillip and Lea were awesome!

The blue waters, the islands, the fortress.... worth every penny!! My tour was with the Providence crew -- great team.
