What people are saying about Pelješac

This may have been the most amazing excursion I have ever been on. Our driver Goldie made it the best with all the info and truly became a friend. The oyster experience was a once in a lifetime event. Shucked on the boat and put on the table. Wine tasting in a small family venue with a home style welcoming. I hope to do this adventure again.

Great active day out. Mickey our guide very friendly, helpful and fun. Great restaurant for lunch and Mickey very good for giving really good recommendations for food and wine. Highly recommend this tour. An excellent way to see the islands.

Great day to discover the national park on the island of Mljet. The guide was very nice and shared her love of the island with us. Only regret: not enough time spent on site. I would come back to see more

Visiting Mljet is a timeless place of salt lakes and crystal clear water. Too bad the time spent on site is short, but sailing on the catamaran is a unique and meditative experience.

Nice guide. Well organized trip. Beautiful area. Wonderful scenes. A day to remember.
