“Excellent service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

See my review of our full day sailing trip we booked through Opcija Tours here:
http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g295370-i2753-k6564674-One_day_sailing_trip_from_Split-Split_Split_Dalmatia_County_Dalmatia.html#51334897

It was fantastic, but note that Opcija is a tour company which does not themselves operate the sailing excursion. They paired us with a great sailing provider.

In addition, our experience with Opcija itself was fantastic. Damir was very responsive to all of our emails. The deposit process (via credit card authorization form) was simple and went smoothly. On the day of our tour, we found our way to Opcija's office inside the old town (a little tricky through twisty narrow not-always-clearly-signed streets, but use the map on their website!) about half an hour before our tour in order to pay the balance of our cost. They were super-nice, and even let us borrow their printer to print one important document that we needed for the next day. (Thanks Damir, and sorry for the paper jam!). They told us about a very interesting wine-pairing course for that evening, but we didn't end up having the time to do so. I believe it was about 230 kuna to sample wine from 4 different Dalmatian regions and have appetizers paired with each wine. Contact them for more details as we did not actually end up booking that tour.

“Sommelier wine tour Hvar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Opcija tours took us on a fabulous trip to island Hvar. First we went snorkeling around one of the rocks near Hvar where we saw some great fish, the transparency of the Adriatic sea here is astonishing! Later we went to Hvar to meet their sommelier who drove us inside the island, we tried so many astounding wines and local delicacies I can´t even remember everything, the wineries are original and unforgettable (especially Tomic winery). Their sommelier is very knowledgeable and fun and the wine paired lunch is also spectacular. We drove back to Split in a sunset, what a day! Island Hvar is definitely a must see place in Croatia, our big thanks to Opcija tours again for showing us it´s best parts.

“Fun day at the sea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

I've been in Split many times, but this time we wanted to do something completely different and that's where Opcija Tours helped us a lot. We didn't even know there was something like spearfishing down there but thanks to Damir (owner of the agency), we managed to experience this exciting adventure. Neither of us had that much diving experience but then again, thanks to Damir we managed to learn a lot. It was very easy comunicating with him before we got there. We met at the shop, rented the gear we needed and spent almost all day at the sea. He tried to teach us how to spearfish, but in the end we didn't catch any fish. Luckily Damir did. After almost 8 hours at the sea, we went back at the restaurant where we grilled the fish. I could only say great things about Damir and Opcija tours since because of his great knowlegde of spearfishing we managed to learn a lot and also had so much fun. We definitely got an excelent service and I would recommend Damir to anyone who's ready for a great adventure.

“A+ tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

This came as a complete surprise to us, we couldn´t even imagine the beauty that surrounds Split. We booked 3 caves tour and Hvar town at Opcija tours travel agency, although we didn´t know what to expect, our initial idea was maybe Hvar only or some closer islands. The owner of Opcija tours Damir talked us into cave diving so we went all the way to the open sea to Bisevo island and then it started, Blue Cave, Sea Monk´s Cave, a small fishermen town Komiza, Stiniva Bay, Green cave, Paklinski islands with the most charming restaurant in the woods (they make their own wine and olive oil, artichokes from the garden.... amazing food), and Hvar town for the dessert. Damir filmed us diving inside the caves with a HD underwater camera, the pictures and videos are fantastic. They say the best things in life come unexpected!

“O:-)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Awesome boat trip to “Pakleni Otoci” just outside of Hvar, even with the not so perfect weather, Damir, our host and owner of Opcija managed everything perfectly….he was knowledgeable, well-spoken and fun, we took another trip to Krka falls with him couple of days after and it was even more spectacular, he is truly passionate about what he does and has my wholehearted endorsement….
