What people are saying about Istria County

Great day trip with nice guides, good food and a varied program. For the price, the trip is highly recommended. For lunch on the Lim Canal there was a choice of grilled fish or meat (chicken and bratwurst) with coleslaw, tomatoes and bread, which tasted delicious. They even provided complimentary wine and water. The stops in Rovinj and Vrasar are definitely worth a visit. Both swimming in the sea and shopping were possible. Unfortunately, drinks on board are a bit expensive (small water €2.50), which is usually the case. We liked it very much, gladly again!

Staff very helpful and friendly. Unfortunately there was a lot of wind, but the trip was nice, and the lunch was very good (even the seagulls were attacking us).

The crew does such a great job there! Everyone was super friendly and spread a really good mood. For €31 you absolutely get your money's worth.

Beautiful lovely tour to view the national park and the surrounding areas from the sea. I would highly recommend it.

Was a wonderful day. Everything perfectly arranged
