1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

We had a very enjoyable holiday on the Island of Sipan near Dubrovnik. The guide was great fun and very enthusiastic, he worked our group out quickly, seeing that we all liked walking, cycling and swimming and were not so keen on big lunches and crowded places. So we had some fabulous days exploring the Islands near Dubrovnik kayaking, swimming, walking and cycling. Although it was very hot we still went out on some great adventures and felt we had really covered all the lesser known local places. When ever we came back from other Islands and places we realised how lucky we were to be staying at Luka Sipanska, by far the most beautiful and unspoilt bay in the Dubrovnik area, wonderful views, clean sea, great little beach and fabulous restaurants and cafes. The Guest house in Luka Sipanska was nice and clean (the air conditioning was a bit temperamental), but the food served to us was rather monotonous so we were grateful that we only had 4 evening meals there and could sample all the other wonderful local restaurants on the other nights. When my husband and myself did not go with the others to Dubrovnik as we had already visited it we were given bicycles to go exploring Sipan. The optional excursion day turned out not to be so successful as our group was too small for a choice to be offered and as we did not all want to go on the one excursion offered we were given no other alternatives.

On the whole it was a lovely week with the right proportion of healthy exercise and exploration with relaxing and down time.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

So much of this trip was memorable--I lucked out with a great tour group and a wonderful guide (Danny). The scenery was beautiful and most places we went were (happily) not overrun with people. Kayaking was definitely my favorite activity, while the most memorable day was when we had lunch at the hilltop farm. I really enjoyed meeting the owners, and knowing that they shared a meal with us that was wholly produced on their land made it that much more special.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Be ready to be active. There is plenty of time to lounge on the beach, but if that is all you want to do this isn't the trip for you!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes--the local places on Sipan definitely got our support, most of the activities (hiking, biking, kayaking) were very environmentally friendly, and the trip to the farm gave a view into local lifestyles outside the towns.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Very good! The accommodations were very comfortable, our guide was great, and the activities were just what I was looking for.
