What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour

Cruising across a glassy-calm sea, drowsily watching the gorgeous scenery slip by. Memorably laid back.

Tour Leader Name

Marija

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

Friendly and competent. Made me feel very old.

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

The Croatians brew some excellent beer. Enjoy it.

Do You Have Anything Else To Add

This has to be one of the most laid back tours in the Explore repertoire. If you want to feel so relaxed you can hardly move, then this is the one for you. Loved it!

What Was The Highlight Or Most Memorable Moment Of Your Tour

The water taxi from the boat to the island of Hvar.

How Was Your Explore Tour Leader

The tour leader was poor. She gave little information about where we were going and when, especially as there was an itinerary change due to high winds. We were not offered the extra activities as listed in the brochure and there was very little communication throughout, she gave information to some travellers and not to others. Our tour leader did not socialise with us and did not encourage group togetherness. This was important to me as a single, female traveller.

What Tips Would You Give To Someone Else Booking This Tour

Try another company.

Do You Have Anything Else To Add

I have been on similar holidays on gulets in Turkey. They were a much better experience, the tour leaders were friendly, helpful, informative and fun. This tour could have been so much better.

Our Response

Thank you for your feedback letter.  We were disappointed with the tour leader feedback from this trip.  Marija had been to our tour leader training in Farnborough earlier this year and had done well, so we were sorry to know that she didn’t meet customer expectations on this departure – the previous tour she led for us had good feedback.  All the points you mention and those on some of the other questionnaires have been addressed, and if matters don’t improve, then we will not continue to use Marija’s services.

The boat was lovely & clean and the crew took great pride in keeping it this way. The food on the boat was really really good, I'm vegetarian and Tony the chef always made me something different. The best part I think was chilling out on the deck chairs on the top deck watching the ocean go by.  Also mooring in a cove for pre-dinner swim, then not having to go anywhere once you had got dressed, you could just sit on deck with a cold beer - heaven!
