There were only three participants in this tour. The young guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. All organizational aspects worked well, with a fast catamaran ride to and from Dubrovnik, motor van to the lakes, motor boat to the Island of St Mary with a break to look around, another boat to the meeting place of the two lakes, three hours to do one's own thing and then van and ferry back to Dubrovnik.
It is an excursion well worth doing.
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.
Our tour guide, Anna from Spain was wonderful. She was friendly and energetic.
Mljet is a beautiful island. We enjoyed the escape from Dubrovnik. The monastery was nice but not fantastic. Our favorite part was the swim. If you're not planning to swim, you'll find the day long and perhaps boring unless you're an avid hiker. I'd recommend this tour only if you have an extra day in Dubrovnik with time to spare. It's a long day, over 11 hours from pickup to drop off.
The pacing of the tour could be improved. We waited on the dock for about an hour in the morning because of a too early pickup. On the island with the monastery we also had an hour when half would suffice. Our guide didn't know the boat timings well enough we discovered we had an extra 30 minutes on the island but by that time it was too late to eat lunch.
Then we had 2 hours to walk about 1 mile to the swimming hole, swim and get back for transportation back to the port. At the port we had another 75 minutes to kill. This was our opportunity for lunch at 3pm.
Perhaps the tour is constrained by the ferry service, but it would be nice to clump the free time together or give individuals choices about how to use all of the free time. For example, we would have opted to spend more time swimming and then eating lunch nearby and returning to the port later.
There's little imparting of information here by the tour guide, merely shepherding you from point A to point B to point C, etc...
Also as others have said, the two hour ferry ride each way is unimpressive. You can't go out on the deck to snap photos, nor is any narrative provided as to what islands or points of interest you may be passing.

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.
