To start, we got invited to another island before that the tour started, it was nice, we got the opportunity to see the island for 2 hours and then they picked us up to continue the tour. They took care of providing information about every place in different languages. There were many options for drinks all the time. The food was good. We saw the dolphins, but they didn't come so close.

For us, the tour ended up being a personal and private tour of Inner Istria with Sini, and what an exceptional and personable guide he is. He is proud of his country, and rightly so. Spectacular. His area and historical knowledge knows no end, a truly wonderful day, capped off with a wonderful lunch in Montovun.

Everything was well organized, the food tasted very good, the captain tried very hard to show us the dolphins live several times, which he succeeded in doing. Great explanation from the tour guide about the islands and the nature reserve, as well as the buildings on it.

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

It was really a great experience, the crew tried very hard to find dolphins, which was the case. It was so nice.
