What people are saying about Drvenik Veli

I would definitely recommend this tour! Marko and his crew made the trip incredibly enjoyable! Beautiful location, lots of fun and amazing people (super easy to make friends as a solo traveler!). Thanks to Roko and Marko this was the most fun I’ve had in Croatia yet!

The guides were excellent and took us to fun places with less crowds. Be prepared for a cold ride back given the later time and it’s a speedboat, and bring snacks as lunch isn’t until 3.

Definitely recommend if wanting to explore more of Croatia! the tour was the perfect amount of time and the guides were informative.

Pia and Yellow were fantastic. They were kind, funny and so knowledgeable. This trip was the best part of our whole entire vacation

Great trip! The speedboat was good fun and the islands were beautiful. Solta was our favourite. Would definitely recommend
