ARCTIC QUEEN June 30, 2018Excellent crew, they accommodated our needs and interests throughout the week making it a memorable week for both adults and kids. We loved how both V&Tom shared with us so much of their knowledge about Dalmatian Coast and Croatia-the food (local meats, chees and cuisine), the wanderful Croatian wines, geography and history of the region. We learned soo much, hand an amazing time and will remember this for a long time!ARCTIC QUEEN June 27, 2018it was an amazing trip we enjoyed every moment we felt we were in professional hands and the food was spectacular

From Suzzanne, ARCTIC QUEEN CHARTER PERIOD: Aug 29 - Sept 5, 2015
Boris, thank you and Petra, we have a wonderful trip.
Best regardsFrom Jorge, ARCTIC QUEEN CHARTER PERIOD: July 25 - Aug 1, 2015…”What made our week so unforgettable in addition to the Arctic Queen and her crew? A combination of unforgettable experiences that cannot be replicated anywhere else in the world. First, the incredible beauty of the Dalmatian Coast is simply stunning. Clean, clear blue water, comfortably swimmable even in October, surrounds the Croatian archipelago. Each island we visited has its own unique culture, landscape and history which Boris recounted in fascinating detail. Second, Boris introduced us to Croatia’s vibrant wine industry and varied local cuisine. We visited four wineries, each unique, but all warmly welcoming us with delicious wines and hors d’oeuvres.”Robert Bunchlas personas con que tuvimos contacto fueron muy gentiles y muy atentas , siempre pendientes de todo y siempre presentes incluso al llegar tarde en la noche atendiendo todos nuestros deseos . Felicitaciones especiales a Boris y a Nera
