Incredible trip treating us to the best of the Croatian Islands. Loved the sailing with stops in small bays for swimming, exploring the villages and enjoying the culture & food.
It was a very nice journey, to remember. Very classy cabins on the ship, good and highly organized crew, excellent guides with great knowledge and good food. Weather was also nice and we got to enjoy each and every pearl from our programme. Perfecta handled the tour without any problem.
