En route to Mljet by sea there are stunning views of the coastline and islands that you would not normally see only minor disappointment was that there was no commentary on the boat identifying the islands and coastline. The large island of Mljet has a monastery floating in the lake which after a short boat ride you visit, views from the top of the monastery are stunning. A further short boat ride takes you to another inland lake which you explore at your leisure, walking, cycling, swimming, or just relaxing enjoying the surrounding scenery and wildlife. Would highly recommend this trip.
LOVED this tour. There were only 2 other people besides my daughter and I and I would encourage everyone to do this. Last reviews were from 2014 but this was more than worth every cent - go to Mljet ASAP
Had a wonderful day and everything smooth and easy, picked up at hotel at time stated by a very friendly and helpful driver. Met Ivana tour guide at the port who was also very helpful, friendly and informative. The only small negative point I have is that we were collected at 8.15 and boat to the national park did not leave until 9.15 but other than that not one thing wrong. The national park is very peaceful and beautiful and we are so very glad we went. There were two weddings on the Island and that was nice to see in the tiny historic chapel. Would I recommend this trip 100 percent yes.. Ivana and your driver thank you very much for your hospitality we had a great day.
Great tour! We were picked up at the hotel in a nice Mercedes. It took us to the port where our guide already purchased the tickets for the catamaran. Our transport to the island took approx. 1h. The guide was friendly and made sure she left us enough time to be on our own. When arrived in the national park, we boarded a minivan that took us to a small boat. After a visit with some interesting facts we went to another island. On that island we had free time for 3h to swim and relax.
Excellent guide, organisation. And a wonderfull place to visit.
Shame the weather wasn't up to grabs.
There were only 6 of us with a local guide, Olga on this trip. It was a genuine small group tour. Olga was interesting and entertaining and gave us plenty of free time as well as good explanations of the islands and many other facts about Croatia and its recent past. Mljet itself is a beautiful island and the tour on the lake with lunch on the water's edge by the old monastery was a highlight, marred only by the ubiquitous wasp plague. There is an opportunity to bathe in the lake (take reef shoes or similar for the stony ground!) and then to take a 20 minute flat walk back along the lake edge. For the historians there is an old Roman villa and Byzantine Church at the harbor edge which can also be explored before getting back on the ferry. All-in-all an excellent day out.
I highly recommend this trip. The park was beautiful. Philip and Paula, our guides, were terrific. Philip told us a lot about Dubrovnik in general and recommended things for us to do in our spare time There were only 3 people on the tour. The lake water temperature was warm in Sept, and because it was salty I was able to just relax and float.
Amazing place, very quiet. The swim in the lakes was the highlight. Our guide Olga was fun and managed to negotiate everything with the local service providers so the tour ran smoothly.
This island is really pristine and beautiful. It is well worth the time! Our guide was knowlegeable about the history of the area as well as all of Croatia and his insights added tremendously to the experience. We had a small group of only 3 people on the tour so we got a lot of personal attention.After visiting with the guide I would go back to Mljet and spend a day or two.

Enjoyable good value day-trip to beautiful island. Plenty of free time, monastery tour interesting - and just long enough to allow restaurant next door to prepare choice of fish or meat-based dishes. Drinks are extra but no more expensive than in Dubrovnik old town itself.
The Island of Mljet (Croatia) is a truly wonderful place to visit. It offers beautiful vistas of lush green natural vegetation, absolutely beautiful lakes, the quaint Church of Marija on a dimunitive little island (easy to stroll around the whole island in less than 30 minutes), and a stunning bike route (easy to rent a high quality mountain bike). For Christians, this island has an added attraction as being one of the stop-over places for Paul during his missionary endeavours. I can highly recommend this one-day trip to anyone visiting Dubrovnik or the Dalmatia area in Croatia.

A beautiful day out, with a small group and a knowledgeable and friendly guide.
Great Tour. The service and the tour guide were excellent. Very kind with all the group.
The place was amazing and beautiful. You can ride on bike, walk, swimming in the lakes, so you must to be ready for that.
It's must to do when you visit Dubrovnik
A fun, beautiful day of hiking and nature. A must while here after other tours showing more historical aspects of area, this is strictly nature.

Too much time was spent on the small lake and not enough time on the big lake.
We found the trip was very expensive, but Mljet island really is special, so it was worth visiting. Free time given to swim in the lake or to rent a bike or a kayak was great. Lunch was nice too:)
I was hoping for more information/history of Mljet. It was really just a ferry ride and entry into national park. I would've also liked more information about activities to do on Mljet in the free time allotted.
