One of the best experiences in Dubrovnik: beautiful unspoilt spots on the coast, gorgeous bay for swimming and great hiking trail. Our companion was super friendly, cordial and we talked a lot. The trail is totally doable, a few tiring moments in the midday sun are totally worth it. Clear recommendation!

We booked the tour expecting to be part of a group but ended up being the only ones so had our very own private tour! We met our guide Zjelka in the port ti catch the ferry to Kolocep and once we arrived she got straight into the hike! As there were just the two of us (plus our guide) we were able to see more of the island than we might have done had the group been larger. It is a very beautiful island and the knowledge and passion Zjelka has for the area only enhanced the experience. We stopped for a picnic lunch in a secluded bay and had a swim in the surprisingly chilly sea! Zjelka also showed us a place we could jump from a cliff into a deep pool but I’m afraid that was one feat of adventure too far for me! A throughly recommended activity for anyone wanting to see Kolocep and learn something about the island’s history as you wander through the warren of paths!

Experience at the top! The two guides were lovely and caring. We had magnificent views during the hike, we had a long time to swim and jump off the rocks. We were alone in this heavenly corner. A little advice take your picnic to enjoy the water even more, otherwise the restaurant is possible. If you are passing through Dubrovnik, this is a day not to be missed!
