One of the best tours we have been on...

One of the best tours we have been on!! So much to see in one day. Peka was absolutely delicious !
Blue cave and green cave were excellent! Unfortunately we didn't swim, so can't comment much about the bays and islands we visited as part of the trip. The food peka was one of the best dishes we've tasted in Croatia during our 3 week holiday. We had the Octopus peka. The natural juices were infused into the potatoes, carrots and rice in the peka and every single element in that dish was heavenly!! Lunch comes with 5 different wines. If you enjoy good food and good wine, this tour is for you. Good scenery and swimming for the other parts of the day. Our skipper and guide husband and wife team were also helpful and good.
highly recommend doing this day trip. the blue cave was incredible. our tour guide took us to the hidden beach which was great. lunch was out of this world. we had the octopus and by far it was the best octopus that my wife and I have ever had.
