Very good excursion, the only thing I would have appreciated is a summary at the beginning, to know where we are going to stop and at which stops we can swim, etc. We were very impressed by the skipper's driving skills.

The trip is amazing! There are several stops in amazing beaches and the guide (Luztia) was kind and very helpful. The green cave is amazing and the blue cave also. I would recommend to anyone!

Excellent excursion and organization of the capitão. At the end of the day, we will have lunch at a restaurant at Numa ilha that ended with an excellent experience in the sun.

We had an amazing tour of Split. Exceeded our expectations. Would recommend to my friends. One of my best tours.

Skipper was fantastic and helped a lot with his local knowledge
