WILDTHENTIC TRAVELERS TESTIMONIALS
"Wonderful kayaking trip with fantastic guide.
This was a fantastic day out, without a doubt one of the highlights of our holiday in Croatia. We are a family of 6 ages ranging from 11 to 50-something : -) with just a little bit of kayaking experience and this was pitched at exactly the right level for us, challenging enough to be exciting but still fun and relaxing.
We got the ferry from Zadar to Molat then kayaked out across the bay to a cove in another part of the island where we walked up to explore some tunnels originally from WW2 but also used in the more recent conflicts in Croatia.
Mike was an absolutely brilliant guide who gave us instruction on kayaking and a lot of interesting historical and contemporary information about Croatia.
We also got to sample some local honey, and encountered some wild goats, the source of much hilarity :-)
Mike also gave us recommendations for things to do in Zadar - a nightclub and a walking tour in Zadar... the nightclub was very much enjoyed by the younger adults in our family, and the walking tour enjoyed by all of us - thanks again for a wonderful experience"
