We had an excellent kayak tour with our guide, Jay. The kayaking is well-paced, surrounded by natural beauty, and interspersed with interesting tidbits about Croatian history/culture/ecology. Jay has had a fascinating life, including working as an extra in the Game of Thrones franchise. He told us stories from the production and was even able to point out filming locations from the water, which was really cool for GoT fans like us. We spent about 45 minutes of the tour at a rocky beach, swimming, snorkeling and jumping off rocks. Jay provided wetsuits and water shoes for those who wanted them. Upon our return to shore, Jay and his boss (a lovely woman whose name I didn't catch) offered our little kayaking group beer and wine. We stayed on the docks chatting for about an hour as the sun set over the harbor. It was a really lovely experience and I'd highly recommend it for anyone staying in Split.

Climbing is only recommended. It is less than 10 minutes from the city center, so you hardly lose any time with the transfer. The two of us were looked after by a guide, so we got our money's worth. The site offers a variety of routes. So it was possible for us as sporty beginners to get into climbing and to have a sense of achievement. There are also much more difficult routes, for example with overhangs. I would book the activity again at any time, especially since the price-performance ratio is great.

A fantastic tour with Marianne. She catered the route to our preferences, gave us a great insight into Split and surrounding areas, and even offered us food and drink recommendations. We would definitely recommend this tour.

Adrian was very knowledgeable and witty. It was an amazing tour with lots to learn about the city. Highly recommended!

Had great experience with the E-Bike enjoy the 2 hour ride through the park
