Brac Island family activity holiday, Croatia
Memorable parts? The people, the food, the island! We felt at home with the staff of the wonderful Illyrian Resort; Ivan, Maira, Maya, Nino, Maida, and the owners, a wonderful couple. This is a fantastic family owned business that provides the nicest and most soothing atmosphere to relax and enjoy with your family. Tips? This is an excellent holiday destination for families who want to avoid noisy, big resort type of holidays. The island of Brac is absolutely gorgeous, the people... (more)Fernando Colchero

Sea kayaking holiday in Croatia
Perfect...The whole holiday was memorable. The kyaking guides were fantastic, accommodation good, food great and I never felt 'herded' around - it was really relaxing and good fun. (more)Pauline Heslop
Lovely week. The group was great with a real mix of ages and experiences. The pace of the week was just right with some pretty challenging paddles some days and really relaxing ones on others. The attitude was laid back with loose plans flexible to suit the needs of the group. (more)jane chaplin
Great fun....the most exciting parts was staying on Sipan and doing a 22k kayak into a 25 km per hour headwind (more)jane brook

Croatia sea kayaking holidays
Fantastic - looking forward to booking a trip for next year with the same company in a different part of Croatia. Felt very well looked after, and though it was only a short four day kayaking break, felt like a lot was packed into it. (more)kathyan kelly
Hiking on the island of Lopud was breathtaking and snorkeling in the crystal clear water was delightful. The guides we had were wonderful, especially Ivana who got us where we needed to be and helped us tremendously when our plans changed. (more)Michelle Blackmon
Kayaking around beautiful such shores in beautiful weather - but also kayaking in strong winds and rain, which was exciting and challenging! On the second day, Amir our instructor showed us a fantastic blue lit cave that could only be reached by jumping out of the kayaks and swimming through a small entrance lots of fun.

Croatia holiday, activity week
A excellent week - Craig and Xania work extremely hard to give their guests a memorable holiday. (more)Graeme Everard
Excellent, superb, outstanding....the hospitality was outstanding, Vis is absolutely beautiful, and our hosts were wonderful. (more)Nancy Lauby
Totally relaxing yet delightfully active with superb hosts. My wife and I have never experienced any vacation quite like this one. My biggest worry was how long my afternoon nap was going to be. Food was off the chart delicious for every meal. I will recommend this vacation to all my friends. (more)Krist Thodoropoulos
From 800 excluding flights
Croatia activity holiday for families
Fabulous...Canyoning with my family was thrilling and spending time together just messing around in the pool was rejuvenating. (more)jessica wilson
We had a great week - perfect for families who want to do something active everyday, meet lots of like-minded people, and explore a beautiful, untouristy part of Croatia. (more)Jane Irving
It was a terrific holiday, the activities were exciting and challenging without being terrifying. The hotel was fine and the pig roast on the final night was a real treat. (more)Ann Stallard

Sailing in Croatia
The most memorable part of the holiday - Sitting on the boat in the sun, under sail, with no noise other than the waves! (more)Sonia Reynolds
Having drinks on the boat one evening with the boat under full sail with the sun setting was the most memorable part of the holiday (more)David Dunhill
The holiday was so much better than I expected...It was all so wonderful, stunning views, fantastic food and great activities but I think the real highlight was seeing the pods of dolphins play near our boat. (more)Debbie Maitland
From 620 - 869 excluding flights
Watersports activity holiday in Croatia
It was simply the best holiday I have ever been on. I used to think the city was the best place in the world. My world was turned upside down. (more)Julie Stolyarchuk
Amazing! The perfect combination of activities and challenges in pristine settings. Our guides, Nikola and Mario are passionate, knowledgeable guys who spoke openly and honestly. I not only enjoyed the activities, but loved learning more about Croatia. (more)maria falgoust
All the activities were excellent but we really enjoyed the river rafting through clouds of blue dragon flies and our lunch stop at a beautiful pool with a waterfall (more)Caroline McGregor
From 620 - 790 excluding flights
Croatia activity holiday, Dubrovnik region
Brilliant definitely one of the best holidays....All the guides and Ivana were great. It was a good variety of activities which kept all the family happy. We stayed in 3 different locations and I liked the fact that we kayaked to the 3rd location, from Sipan to Loped and our luggage was there when we arrived. (more)Susan Lambert
Excellent...The best thing about the holiday was that it matched the description and quality of the brochure. The sea and coastline, really was beautiful, the food was local, fresh and good and people were helpful and friendly, the activities were generous and considerate of the abilities of the participants. (more)Daniel Bangham
I loved the Quad Biking, horseriding, especially the sea kayaking...I have travelled around the world twice and there are not many places i would visit twice, however i would visit Croatia again. (more)Sarah-Jane Denham

sea kayaking from island to island... (more)Andrew Mok
9 out of 10. An unprecedented success, with one of the nicest local family run businesses out there. The family were incredibly accommodating and were always helping us (more)Dan Zubaida
A really good break which allowed us to kayak extensively each day, at our own pace and with lovely overnight rests in a variety of different places. Excellent maps were provided by the operator (more)Paul Hyland
From 335 excluding flights
Family sea kayaking holiday in Croatia
Wonderful...Swimming in the sea caves, the farmhouse dinner...So many happy meals. The silence of kayaking even in a group. Discovering footpaths leading to beautiful rocky places to swim...Too many good memories to have only one favourite! (more)Alison Acton
It was brilliant. The 3 other families in our group were great fun. The guides were really good and worked very hard to make sure everyone enjoyed themselves. The island of Lopud is idyllic. We will certainly be back! (more)Hannah Whibley
Most memorable? The peaceful islands, the warm, clear waters and the relaxed approach... Absolutely fantastic, I only wish it could have lasted longer. I really could not fault the operator. (more)Kate Holloway
From 615 excluding flights
Kayaking weekend in Croatia
First rate, the islands were idyllic, kayaking superb with the team making you feel so welcome. Top holiday. (more)susan bein
The most memorable part was when the guides took our group to a small local farm for an all inclusive 4 course meal where we had abundant home cooked food and drink, all the meat came from the farm and the wine was also made by the family on the farm. It was fantastic! (more)Anna Halter
The most memorable part was the colour of the water! The sea was so clear, you could see to the bottom quite easily. It was especially impressive when we went cave swimming. (more)James Smith
From 390 excluding flights

The holiday was brilliant. Activity balanced with proper relaxation. We have come back really rejuvenated. Craig and Xania (and Zora-the dog) work very well together to pull the experience together so you can just get on and enjoy your break. (more)Paul Irving
Excellent! The best parts were actively exploring the Island of Vis, on bikes, kayaks and foot. Beautiful place, beautiful people. (more)Diane Johnson
Our kids, aged 5 and 11 had a terrific time and really loved the activities as well as mucking about in the sea, snorkelling and swimming...Great! "Fantastic, awesome, really good!" (comments from the kids). (more)Diana Lloyd

Croatia activity holiday, Gorski Kotar region
Memorable parts? Views from the mountains across to the Adriatic coast, walking in the Una River National Park in Bosnia, drinking Turkish coffee made on a small fire in the mountains, swimming in the icy clear green water of a small river and the majestic beauty of the Plitvice Lakes. Tips? Make sure you have strong supportive footwear-as advised on booking, a lightweight day sac and lightweight kagoule Local benefits? We spent 3 nights staying in rooms in the homes of local...

Multi activity holiday in Croatia
Fantastic! Beautiful country, very peaceful and relaxed but adventurous. Our guides were excellent, informative and relaxed. The whole experience was great. We really enjoyed the activities everyday - rafting, especially - it was beautiful and thrilling! We also enjoyed that we had plenty of downtime during the evening, to relax and soak up the village life. (more)Emma Buckland
Wonderful!...We stayed in a rural hotel and so hope that this provided local jobs in this lovely location, soon to be a conservation area (more)Mary Purton
5 Star. Croatia was wonderful and the tour guides really looked after us.... The best bit? The walk to and climb up Gromavaca (1,675m). I think it is the highest peak I have climbed and the view from the top fantastic. To the west was the Adriatic, with its parched rugged coastline, to the north, south and east back into Croatia with the white limestone mountains and dark green forests. (more)Michael Hasnip
From 620 - 790 excluding flights
Sea kayaking in Croatia
I loved almost everything! We had booked the sea-kayaking trip and were upgraded to the catamaran sailing trip for 5 of the 7 days, which was fantastic! I enjoyed seeing the different islands while sailing, biking and kayaking, as well as all the meals the guides organised for us at local people's houses. (more)Astryd Letrud
Exciting: Kayaking in beautiful crystal clear waters and seeing the islands from a whole different perspective. Memorable: enjoying fantastic home-cooked food every night with a friendly international group. (more)Mandy Hetherton
Most memorable was kayaking around Kolocep Island and visiting the luminous Blue Cave half way around the island, which we could only swim into and out of. (more)Rosie Tanner
From 620 - 790 excluding flights
Croatia holiday, Dubrovnik and the Dalmation Coast
Excellent trip - would recommend it to others. (more)Ann Williamson
Even better than expected. A lovely area to visit. The most memorable part was walking the walls of Dubrovnik - great views and lots of history. (more)Nick Ward
From 1179 including UK flights
Balkan adventure holiday
The train ride from Sarajevo to Mostar was the most memorable part. (more)Kwan Lee
I loved the whole holiday but the people on the holiday were so great that they will remain in my memory for a long time. Sarajevo was perhaps the place I liked best for many reasons. Budva was beautiful. (more)Katie Coates
The most memorable was the Montenegrin coastline (more)Navinder Shergill
From 1415 - 1550 excluding flights
Water multi sport holiday in Croatia
Memorable parts? The river kayaking. Tips? Take water shoes and plenty of sun cream. But also be prepared for some hard work as the kayaking can be very tiring. Local benefits? Not really. Overall rating? It was OK but it would have been a lot better if the group had been made up of at least one or two children of similar age to ours and the guides had a better command of English and a bit more personality. They made no attempt to learn our names or to build any team... (more)Carole Sweeney
From 620 - 790 excluding flights
Croatia multi activity holiday
The most memorable part of the holiday was Kayaking to Lokrum and spending time in the beautiful walled city and staying in a beautiful guest house. (more)Kate Vernon-Rees
This was an excellent holiday. The balance of activity, culture and free time / relaxation was perfect for us. We have an active 9 year old with good stamina and she loved it, others as young as this might struggle. (more)Deborah Stapleton
This is the most enjoyable and relaxing family holiday we have had in a while. Croatia is stunningly beautiful. (more)Clare Pallett
From 670 excluding flights
Croatia sea kayaking holiday, islands & parks
Brilliant. Our guide Radovan was great - laid back, fun, skilful, knowledgeable and hard working: unlike on UK group kayak trips I've been on, we hardly ever had to portage our own kayaks; he moved them all to and fro at the end of the days (towing, bussing, ferrying them) when we needed to start somewhere new the next day. We hardly ever had to carry our own bags either which was luxurious for this kind of holiday! (more)Nicola Robinson
Besides the great nature, people from Sipan and Miljet are amazing. Specially at the guest house we stayed at Suduradj. (more)Manoela Penna
The most memorable part of the holiday were the local people, in particular the family with whom we stayed on Sipan. (more)Peter Hodgetts
From 790 excluding flights
