    A review of Cruise the Islands and Cities of the Dalmatian Coast by Holly & George

    Overall this has been the best holiday I think I have ever been on. Completely stress-free (once I decided to book a taxi to the airport on the UK side rather than get a train!). Before the holiday your agents helped me find cheaper flights and organised food and transport despite the fact that this made us later than the rest of the guests. Incredibly happy with everything, thank you! We have

    never done anything like this before, a boat cruise or Croatia, so didn't really know what to expect. The boat was fairly small (a good thing) with about 30 occupants and therefore it was a small crew of about 6 people which meant you got to talk to them all and get to know them. The chef was Italian and the food we received was absolutely incredible. When we heard we were going to be getting breakfast and lunch each day we thought it would be a sandwich based lunch but in fact, we got three-course meals every day! This meant we didn't really need to buy any extra food (we did though just to try the local cuisine). We normally keep ourselves to ourselves on holiday but we sat with a couple from New Zealand on the first day and ended up making very good friends and we are now planning to travel to New Zealand to stay with them. There was a large variation in age on the boat, my husband and I in our 20's and ranging up to roughly 75 but this was fine as you could plan whatever you fancied on shore - my husband and I opted for higher energy activities each day but you could have easily chosen to wander slowly round the town or stayed on the boat admiring the views. Everything was incredibly easy from travelling to eating to planning our days so no stress. I am so happy I booked this and for the price I paid it has massively exceeded my expectations.

  • The scenery is stunning.

    A review of Discovering the Alentejo from A to Z by Hilary & James Boerio
    13 September 2016

    Loved travelling down the coast. The scenery is stunning. The cliffs are so steep and craggy, with the sea a wonderful turquoise colour. Beaches are clean and beautiful. The "decking" style of pathways makes everywhere really accessible. The jeep tour from our first hotel was excellent. The guide explained about the ways in which the trees in the Natural Parks, inland, are "farmed" and which

  • A relaxing holiday in Croatia

    A review of Cruise the Islands and Cities of the Dalmatian Coast by Kathryn & Nicholas Heirons
    10 September 2016

    It was a relaxing holiday where we got to see some beautiful, quieter parts on the Croatian islands as well as visiting Dubrovnik and the better-known harbours. The crew were very friendly and the chef produced delicious lunches. The cabins were comfortable with good ensuite facilities. Air conditioning was available throughout the night, not just for a couple of hours. It was a cosmopolitan group
