WILDTHENTIC TRAVELERS TESTIMONIALS
"Beautiful TripWe did the sunset tour, taking in 3 islands over 4 hours. Boris was amazing, he is I love with Lumbarda and the surrounding area and his passion really comes through on the tour. Not only did we get some high-quality kayaks that made everything much easier, but expert tuition and then some really interesting facts about the area and each island as we visited in turn. On the final island Boris unpacked some homemade treats! Lovey canapés with home grown tomatoes, homemade pesto, locally sourced anchovies etc, it was delicious. And to top it off a glass of Grk made by a neighbour. Delicious. It was a pleasure…our family of four would do it all again!"
