We had a great time on our tour with Ivo! He was personable, professional and full of interesting stories and anecdotes about the areas we travelled through. We enjoyed the boat ride to the oyster farms and the delicious little meal as well as our stops at Ston and the botanical gardens. The drive up the Napoleonic road gave us a great overview of the Elaphiti Islands and the beautiful coastline of Croatia. Ivo also told us about an interesting bar near our hotel. A fun & relaxing day. Highly recommend!
