We have carefully hand-picked a selection of boutique hotels which will help to make your stay that bit more memorable.

  • Service rating : Jayne was very quick to respond to our initial enquiries. Once we had booked, she was also extremely helpful with a few hiccups we had - we had difficulties with the online check-in for our outbound flights, which she resolved for us. Then our outbound flight (on a Saturday, outside the company's office hours) was hugely delayed, and the details for our Istanbul hotel stated that they didn't have 24 hour reception, so Jayne contacted them to let them know we were arriving late and rearranged the airport transfer. The whole trip was well organised and ran very smoothly.
    Product : Hotels extremely well chosen and located for families - we were travelling with our 12 year old son and 8 year old daughter. The Istanbul hotel was a few minutes walk from the Blue Mosque, and the Cappadocia cave hotel was just stunning. The guide and driver in Cappadocia were excellent and went out of their way to make our time in their region as enjoyable as possible. And the sights and scenery were just breathtaking.

  • On the first week the guides and staff were really flexible on times to transfer to and from Lopud which was really helpful. We were due to leave Dubrovnik on the 6 pm ferry on the Sunday but as it was so hot we decided to take the earlier ferry as suggested by the Adria rep.

    Accommodation in Dubrovnik was comfortable. We explored a little outside Dubrovnik city and wondered if it might have been nicer to stay nearer one of the little coves, five minutes from the city gates to get out the city.

    The sea kayaking week was excellent. Great guides and good trips. The accommodation was really comfortable - lovely family and the air condition was rather essential! I think we had booked a family trip but the guides asked if we would like to join a larger group which we did and this worked really well. Kayak trips were superb - about the right length and a good mix of destinations including the botanical gardens and lots of time to swim and snorkel. It was surprisingly manageable despite the heat. At the end we wished we had booked the 5 day tour. The farm evening meal was great fun.

    The two nights at Hotel More were a lovely bit of luxury. Really liked the hotel - quite small and slightly away from the main areas of activity in the bay. Again good advice on how to get around from staff.

    The second week with Huck Finn was also excellent. A good mix of activities - the rafting day in Bosnia was particularly good as we got to see a different country - quite a contrast with Croatia. Guides were again really good - very well informed and all trips were well organised. All transfers good. We had breakfast and evening meals with a local family which were lovely - lots of traditional cooking and they catered really well for different dietary requirements. The accommodation was rather more basic. We had two rooms on an upper floor with a shared bathroom so not our own space. It seemed that the accommodation varied quite a lot with others having small apartments with kitchens and fridges, which would have been helpful. Weather had cooled a little by then which was good as we would have had no means to cool the rooms down at night. Having said that our owner was a lovely lady - made us cakes and apple strudel when we came home at the end of the day.

    All in all an excellent trip!

  • My kayak tour with Tour dust is an experience I will treasure forever. I believe Johnny is exactly the type of guide everyone hopes for on a trip like this. Upbeat, funny, enthusiastic, and an incredible level of skill in this sport. I have been kayaking for many years, but, being over 60 years old now, I certainly appreciated knowing we were in such very, very capable hands.
    And the other people who took part in the trip? What a great bunch! It's hard to believe we were mostly complete strangers just one week ago. I will treasure those friendships forever as well.
