An amazing day. Well organised and very interesting.

I would highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide, Vid, was great. We also got lucky and were the only 2 people on the tour, so the pace of the tour was set by us. We met Vid at the port to before taking the ferry to Lopud. Once on Lopud, we got some instruction on kayaking, since neither my husband nor I are avid kayakers. Vid also had a dry bag for us to put our things in and water. We kayaked to a cave where we were able to explore and swim into the cave. This part of the tour was pretty casual and we were allowed to explore for as long as we wanted. Then we kayaked around the island to the port and left our kayaks for the bike ride. The ride was pretty easy with the exception of one hill on the way back we walked up this hill. Not many hills otherwise and actually a pretty flat ride. Lunch was great. We had a platter with grilled veggies, tuna and squid or octopus, can't remember. They we biked for a bit longer around that portion of the island there is a good view not far away. After biking back, we kayaked home back to Lopud. This was the perfect excursion for us as we wanted to be active and see different parts of the Elaphite islands. Vid was also an excellent guide and very personable. The total trip for us was a full day so it was also a great deal.

Our kayaking and Cycling adventure was very fun. Our guide,Vid, was excellent. He was very helpful, personable, informative, and his timing was perfect to avoid the crowds. The lunch that was arranged for us on Saipan was delicious! Highly recommend this tour.

My sister and I had a fantastic day of kayaking, cycling and excellent local food! We rescheduled our day as it was quite a stormy week in may with strong winds and therefore quite high waves, but our guide Zek was really flexible and happy to take us out whenever the weather improved and within a day or two it was perfect conditions. Kayaking was great fun and the bike ride was nice and easy going with great views of what must be the most beautiful island in Croatia - totally unspoiled scenery and idyllic coastline. We had a delicious meal of freshly caught local fish and vegetables/olive oil produced on the island. Thank you! It was a really memorable day and a lot of fun!

Best tour I have ever done!! Great guide. physical effort just right - you are on holiday after all, why exhaust yourself i.e. very comfortable. The ferry stops on all three islands, you walk through the second one on your way to the kayaks, just enough because there is nothing to see really. The first one, or rather the smallest one, we only stopped at on the way back and is really tiny, not even worth visiting. The last island, Sipan, however is really relaxed and nice. I could see myself retiring to this island. This island is also the one you kayak to and cycle on. Time at disposal is great, we had good time for everything, swimming, lunch and even a cup of coffee before the ferry back.

Great day with perfect balance of activity and free time. Good value for money with guide all day and lunch included. Would recommend to any fairly active person. Different to tours on offer from Dubrovnik, really pleased we booked this in advance.
