Great time with Andrea and Mario
My son and I went on the Bacina Lakes kayaking tour with Andrea and Mario in August, and we had an awesome time with them. We were lucky to have both of them for ourselves :-) ... they are such a pleasant company, easy to talk to, they are knowledgeable about the area and answered any question we had. Even showed us some cool things like how to scare hundreds of sea gals away without making any noise at all. That was quite funny :-). The tour took about 3 to 4 hours and we felt like we did not want to part with them :-). If we are ever in the area again, we hope to see them again on another great adventure tour. Edi and Alex

Kayaking nirvana
The weather started off a little unfriendly with rumbles of thunder followed by an exhilarating storm which was timed for our first stop. After a refreshing coffee, the sun came out and everything was ultra fresh. Mario and Andrea our guides were very cheerful and enthusiastic and clearly loved the area. Their enthusiasm was contagious. It was outstandingly beautiful and unspoilt. As we were a small group, we could stop whenever we wanted, enjoy the tranquility and do some swimming along the way. Everything you needed was provided from welcoming drinks, waterproof bags for phones and valuables, band-aids, hammocks even additional warm clothes on offer after the rain. A lot of fun and some lovely photographs taken by our guides, emailed to us the next day. I would heartily recommend this tour. Thanks for a memorable day.

Gorgeous Sunset Kayak Tour
Andrea and Mario are lovely. They communicated promptly. My husband and I and our four kids had a wonderful time kayaking. Mario is an excellent guide. The kayaks are excellent. The kayaking is easy. We stopped twice at two small coves and were provided with snorkeling gear if we wanted. Mario and Andrea thoughtfully took photos of us all throughout the kayaking. It was a beautiful evening and we highly recommend the adventure with Andrea and Mario.

Perfect private tour - great experience
We had really great experience, guide Mario and Andrea were perfect, they took us on a wonderfull private tour on the lakes. We were group of 8 people. I recommend this to everyone, if you want you can take the tour in more relaxing way, or (in our case) you can do it in I would say "sport&fun" way. We enjoyed every part on the tour, from swimming in the lakes, challenge in hidden cold lake, beer/coffe break to kayaking and splashing and overtaking each other on the kayaks.

Best trip ever!
We had the best time with Andrea and Mario! We went on two tours with them, Bacina lakes and Norin river, and they were the highlight of our trip to Croatia! They gave lots of information about the region and also gave us tips on what to do later in the day. We thought there would be some other people on the tour, but it was a trip just for us. They brought fresh fruit from their garden and some home made cherry liquor to taste if we wanted some (I think they picked up that we like to try new things regarding food and drink). They take pictures along the way with a camera and also a drone! All in all it was pretty much the coolest part of our trip and I can’t recommend them enough! We will definitely book more trips with them when we come back to Croatia. 10/10

A wonderful experience
I strongly recommend this excursion. First of all the site is breathtaking, all shades of green, very quiet, grand and relaxing, a natural beauty. Then the welcoming guides Mario and Andrea made this experience magical. My son is 7 and was not going to kayak for hours. But he loved it, they had brought water pistols and other games, he jumped of the kayak in the lakes a few times... They took photos that they shared with us afterwards It’s the perfect family excursion, sporty but nit too much, relaxing in an active way, away from the crowd. We were even offered fresh fruits and juice from their garden. A great memory of our Croatian holidays. Thank you

Great fun on the lakes
A informative and enjoyable morning on Bacina lakes. Mario was a kindly, patient and insightful guide. The lakes are calm, beautiful and uncrowded. We spent a very pleasant circuit of the the lakes stopping here and there for a swim, ice cream or a welcome hammock. Mario shared the history, wildlife and secret location with our family. Great fun!

Excellent private tour
During our stay in Makarska we really wanted to go kayaking. After having read about this tour I sent an email asking for the possibilities to join the tour when staying in Makarska and not having a car. Andrea and Marco immediately arranged a separate tour for us compatible with the bus from Makarska. A private tour for me and my 16-year old son with the two of them, not demanding to be paid extra. It was such a wonderful experience to be out on the lakes and discover the nature surrounding them. Also a nice break from the salty waters of the sea and all the tourists in Makarska. Andrea and Marco are such friendly and humble people and it is obvious that they are not doing this for the money (they charge way to little by the way) but because they love the experience themselves and are generous enough to not only share it with each other but also with us. Do yourselves a favour and go on this trip!

More than just a kayak trip.
The Baćina lakes are a beautiful spot, so any trip there will be worthwhile. Each of the lakes seems to have its own character though, so having an expert guide is definitely a good idea. Mario and Andrea are definitely that, but a lot more besides. To begin with, they were very accommodating in arranging a kayak trip for our family of four after a late cancellation in our planned activity. Not to mention patient when we turned up slightly late. We were welcomed with a bowl of fruit from their garden and then taken out in their (very stable) two person kayaks. For more than three hours we were taken through different lakes, each with a different story told in engaging fashion. There were also regular stops -on one occasion they hung hammocks for us- and opportunities to swim etc. It’s a leisurely trip, ideal for families. Andrea and Mail are excellent guides, but also lovely people. The tour felt like an afternoon spent in the company of friends. Can’t give higher praise than that.

Great Adventure on Bacina Lakes
Today we had the kayak tour on Bacina lakes together with Andrea & Mario. It was really exciting and also interesting to learn more about that wonderful place. Especially for hot days like today it is a „cool“ tour together with family and/ or friends.

Wonderful!
What a wonderful expedition across the Bacina lakes! We were lucky to have Mario and Andrea for ourselves. Great to talk to them, they will tell you about the lakes, about the people and about the history of the surroundings. Kayaking is really relaxing and the water is nice and clear, swimming in the lakes is a must-do!

Paradise!!
Cannot get more perfect than that! Andrea and Mario have designed the best kayak tour possible. Everything already described on the website and in the reviews here is brilliantly organised!!! From welcome drinks to transfer if necessary, to changing rooms and water pistols, from hammock to photos, from water fight to swimming on demand. Every aspect has been thoroughly and careful developed, every details reaching perfection....but Andrea and Mario's strength are their amazing flexibility and ability to connect with their guests and deliver a totally tailored experience... If you love nature and being outdoors, look no further. This was the best day of the holidays! Voted 5* by a family of 7: mum, dad, and big kids of 20, 18, 16 and twins at 13. THANK YOU! We will be back! xx
