I would thoroughly recommend this tour - it is the perfect way to see Croatia as it stops at loads of islands. The crew were fantastic, food was very tasty and the accommodation was great. The boat stopped at coves and inlets so you could swim each day as well as stopping at picturesque towns. We even joined the cycling tour on a few occassions, which was spectacular - definitely worth hiring bikes to explore the islands. Overall, my partner and I had the best vacation so far and would recommend it to everyone!
Great time and the weather favored the whole day of cruising on three islands. I am by myself and joined a large group of fellow tourists thirty five total mainly from the US. Interesting group of mostly baby boomers so there's a palpable tension on the boat because of different personalities. Some were left on the first stop for not adhering to time, but overall, it went great. The three stops were truly amazing, with each Island has its own character. It's a laid back atmosphere, great to spend the day and even the boat ride is really fun-especially feeding the seagulls from the leftovers. I admired the patience of the young crew, keeping everybody happy with their demands like beer which is not included in the beverage. The lunch that was served was amazing and a very pleasant surprise on my pick chicken. I did not expect to taste that chicken that good-that it was cooked so simply. I even got to taste the fish which was also great! All these were cooked on the boat during the excursion and that to me is a very personal touch. I took some pictures of the crew and a couple of selfies with the cook. If there's a way to reach that young crew/cook, I want to personally thank him for his patience accommodating us-it will be greatly appreciated.
Dubrovnik is a fantastic location, we really loved the old town, public transport and food were excellent. Accommodation exceeded our expectations in all of the hotels, though all of the rooms were on the non view side of the hotels. The transfers were really well organised and the walking tours were enjoyable and informative. I'd recommend this tour to others.

All the islands looked the same. Nothing much to do.
The boat was manned by guys who drank the whole time. We weren't told where the life jackets were and when we asked, we found out they were inaccessible. Two islands were boring with not much to offer. The beverages served were crap.
Great tour! relaxing and saw everything I was expecting to of surrounding islands
Great day well spent on this boat trip. Very helpful and charming crew.
Loved this tour!!! The hotels were excellent and the tours that were included. The guides were so professional and very good. Highly recommended!
Excellent tour. The crew were very friendly and, when a thunderstorm broke out at the end of the trip, obviously knew what they were doing. They even rescued another boat. Food was good and it was great having a supply of cold drinks.
A very pleasant and relaxing cruise. The food is delicious and the boat's crew was very friendly. This was a great break from the crowds of Dubrovnik!
I enjoyed this tour, but thought that it was over-marketed. I was told there would be no more than 8 people on my tour, and there were at least 20. There were also some hidden costs that I wasn't expecting, such as taking a golf cart as to not walk the 45 minutes to the beach on the first island, and the wine was truly awful/undrinkable.
The sites were beautiful, so it is hard to give it a bad review, I just had had a lot of prior expectations, such as the small group, and drinking delicious wine all day. The guide was friendly and the lunch on board was very good. A beautiful day excursion! I'd definitely recommend bringing your own water, too, as there is a lot of time off the boat where you would need it.
Everything about the cruise was amazing. The captain was nice and helpful.the island stops two small island and one bigger island. Bring swimmers because you can swim at all of them. The lunch they provide was beautiful and the cruise is so relaxing. Very well worthwhile doing if you are in Dubrovni
Great view of the islands, wonderful staff, and good food. Definitively i will do it again.
The trip / tour is recommended. It was great seeing and relaxing in the islands. I meet new friends, too. The only downside was that the boat was rather small and it was packed, 3 people had to squeeze in a bench which would have only been ideal for 2-person seating.
Prompt and convenient pickup, lovely fish lunch, nice beaches for a fun swim. My 14 year old felt that a greater variety of beverages was needed.
I loved this trip, very good tour guide and food on the boat very good. Only thing I would say is that you can get the same trip much cheaper if you get it there as loads of companies doing the same thing.
We booked this trip at the last minute, the day before and we able to be accommodated. The boat was at full capacity. The captain was very engaging with the group and offered drinks all day. The first two islands were just enough time to explore. There's not much to do. A leisurely walk and some photo ops or a drink.
Lunch was barbecued chicken or fish and a salad and bread. It was very good. The third island was a bit lengthy. It was a hot day and we had nothing planned so we basically looked for a restaurant in the shade to hole up in. We did wade in the Adriatic Sea so bring a swimsuit.
We really liked this tour. Our local contact at EuroAdria Nora Keizer was exceptionally helpful for any last minute changes and coordination. Transfers Airport-Hotel-Train Station were on time and local guides were very knowledgeable. Hotels were generally good but the one in Hvar could surely have been better, overall.
On the whole a very positive experience and would recommend the tour. Also, recommend staying an extra day or two in Zagreb Plitvice trip. Indrajit, Mass, USA
Terrible. Yes, you go island-hopping on a small boat. If you like drinking, sunbathing and swimming, this is for you. If you want more than that, don't bother. It was like being on some sort of party boat rather than how it is described in the blurb, joking about getting drunk constantly and playing cheesy music loudly out of the tinny speakers on-board.
But here is how our trip went. I got a call at 8pm the evening before to say that our pickup time would be two hours later 9:05 instead of 7:05. Nice, a little bit of a lay in. We were told to meet them at the bus stop at the bottom of the road. They provided a map to say exactly where it was, but as we'd been there a few days we knew where it was anyway. We got there at 8:50 so we were nice and early. 9:05 came and went and we waited until about 9:20. I called the office who said the driver was there at 9:00 but didn't see us, so he left nice of them to call me to let me know!. We were there 10mins before then so they definitely didn't come. We were then told they were 5 mins away. 20 minutes went by again, so I called. Again they said they couldn't find us and asked us exactly where we were. We told them where we were according to their map and a few minutes later our air-conditioned coach arrived: a 1993 Opel Corsa with no seat belts and certainly no air conditioning. The driver asked us to get in and didn't say a single word - no apology, not even an explanation. As we drove towards the port she noticed her friend walking along the street who she decided to give a ride down the road. They then decided to talk to each other in Croatian about us! I could work out a few words. When we arrived at the port and got on the boat the captain announced to everyone that one of the minivans had broken down so they were late picking some people up - a story which doesnt add up when they said they couldnt find us twice and apparently arrived 5 minutes before they were even due to pick us up. Far from impressive.
Tour was great! Amazing food and very nice places!! Super nice and friendly crew at the boat!
Great value for money, we were out all day from 10am to 7pm. Collected from hotel and dropped back after t tour. Boat staff were pleasant and lunch was good (go for the fish). All three islands were beautiful.
Quite fun! Good pick-up shuttle service, very nice lunch on board, adequate time to explore islands.
We were worried when no one arrived to pick us up - then a whirlwind arrived - our boat captain. Apparently his driver had picked up the wrong people, so he did what any decent tour operator should do - he took care of his customers. The boat was comfortable. The ride out to the islands and between islands was fun and relaxing with beautiful views. This islands are all small with little villages. Not a great deal going on, but we took advantage on the first two islands to hike. The first island was more populated, while the second we were wandering the road through the hills to a little church. Enjoyed it. The lunch of fish was very good!
The last island we sat down, had some cheese/ham and beer and relaxed on the water front.
Well worth it - a nice diversion from the crowds in Dubrovnik.
Nice tour, shown a lot of countryside and explained history to us
