“Took a 5 hour tour when cruise ship was in port”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

Damir took us out to a couple islands and a fantastic lunch. Would not hesitate to use him and Opcija tours. He was waiting for us when our cruise ship (Pacific Princess) arrived. We had been to Split for several days the previous year so wanted to see some islands and spend time on the water.Great boat ride, great swimming, fantastic lunch all with a great guide. Did all using tripadvisor reviews and all went as planned with no bad surprises. A Vancouver, BC couple

“Best Tour Ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

I can not begin to recommend Damir and Opcija tours more. Meeting Damir absolutely changed our trip and the way we were able to see behind the scenes places in Croatia we would have never seen without him. We took the wine tour and visit to the waterfalls and later in the week hired him to come over to Hvar for a behind the scene boat tour and amazing day exploring caves, incredible restaurants on small islands and truly experiencing the best of Croatia like a local!

Whatever you do when you take a visit to Croatia make sure you connect and hire Opcija Tours! He knows all there is to know and you will have a ton of fun in the process!

“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

We had planned 4 days in Split, but would have stayed a lot longer due to the fabulous experiences we had with Opcija tours - specifically Damir. Our hotel was by the marina and Damir picked us up on his boat. We travelled to one near-by island and we were having such a great, fun time, that upon our arrival, we decided to charter the boat the entire day for island hopping! Damir took us to several islands including Hvar. Absolutely wonderful and beautiful. The highlight, was a fabulous lunch on an "remote" island where all has to be brought in by boat. The BBQ, scenery, desserts, hospitality was truly memorable. The next day, Damir took us to the Waterfalls and a lovely local rustic restaurant. Delicious succulent local foods were prepared in abundance. People make the trip - much more than monuments and the like. Damir had make this a truly memorable, happy experience. We will return!

“Great spearfishing experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

While backpacking through eastern europe with my friend, we were looking for something interesting to do with our time in split. We needed to stay in a budget and i found opcija tours which would take us spearfishing and sightseeing on his boat. Damir was great at responding my emails and we set up a date that was convenient for us since we were only staying in Split for s few days. Upon meeting him we found that he ran his business very professionally with brand new gear fit for the cold waters of Croatia. We set off in his boat and went spearfishing in several different locations. There was no time rush and my friend and I were very satisfied with the value of the trip. At the end of the day, we ate our catch at a local restaurant and were very satisfied with the excursion. If I ever travel to Split again, I will definately book an adventure with Opcija Tours.

“Fantastic Experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

When we planned an autumn break to Split, we could hardly imagine what a wonderful week we would have, full of unexpected experiences. Thanks to Damir, we had at least 2 unforgettable days : one where he took us on a fishing trip and one on which we visited the beautiful Island of Hvar with its Paklinski Islands.
Because the weather was still great and my husband and the boys’ basic male instincts were roused by the sight of all these fish in the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean shores of Split city, we took a spontaneous decision to go for a sea fishing trip. Very punctually, Damir picked us up close to our apartment and we headed for the marina, from which we had a nice boat trip to a beautiful spot somewhere between Trogir and Ciovo. The first fishing rod was hardly prepared and put in the water, and we had our first catch of the day! Soon a second and third followed, but we also had some ”bites” that could not be secured in time, of course those were the biggest ones, and they grow bigger every time this story is told back home . Although real fishermen tend to claim that women on boats are bad luck, after a couple of hours, the boys had caught 8 medium sized fish - we had to set one free again because it was still too small - and Damir took us to a very nice restaurant where the freshly caught fish were immediately cleaned and prepared in the most delicious way. And even if our catch would have been smaller, no need to worry, the restaurant had excellent shellfish and other sea food and nice local wines to accompany it all.
After a very enjoyable long afternoon lunch, Damir took us safely back home, treating us to some great views to Trogir from the water, and not to forget, a magnificent sunset.
After such a day, you think things cannot get better, but that is where you underestimate the beauty of Dalmatia and Damirs expertise and knowledge of the nicest spots around! Stimulated by their success, the boys wanted to go for another fishing tour, but Damir suggested to take us to Hvar and the Paklinski Islands (fishing still being an option there). This trip was beautiful beyond words, the overwhelming nature, the peacefulness of Senkti Klement and the hospitality of Mister Tonci cannot be expressed, you just have to go and experience that yourself!
