Exceptional Bee Learning Experience
Jun 2021
What a great experience to learn so much about bees on the charming island of Solta with Tvrdic. Afterwards he and his wife hosted us for a wonderful lunch. We appreciated their hospitality and all information about bees.

Worth the visit!
This is a wonderful and informative program good for people of all ages. A third-generation beekeeper explains the importance of honey bees, how they are kept and why they are different from wasps. I leaned much during this visit from our charming, and frequently funny host.

Visited with our tour guide Josko and other friends. What a great experience, entertaining and educational. You can tell the love Goran has for the bees. Thoroughly recommend and make sure you buy some honey

Waxing on about Bees
Sep 2020
We first visited Tvrdic last year while on the island of Solta, and I was so taken by Goran's passion about bees that I insisted we go again this year -- this time with my sister-in-law. Once again, we were charmed by his humor and fascinated by his knowledge of the wonder of bees. My sister-in-law and I are even considering getting bee tattoos (small)!

This is a must for all visitors to Solta! It is a wonderful example of how the island works together with nature to maintain a bit of paradise.

After five trips to Croatia, one of my favorite experiences!
Sep 2019
Our day at Tvrdic Honey was one of the most special days I've ever experienced! We were staying in Split, so Goran met us at the ferry with a welcome basket of fresh figs -- absolutely delicious! Then, as a favor, he arranged for a friend drive us to the other side of the island, where we enjoyed iced coffees and some beach-strolling time in lovely Maslinica before the driver picked us up and brought us back to Tvrdic Honey's lovely homestead. Goran and his wife are laidback and absolutely lovely. They served us an unrushed lunch that was truly one of the best meals I've ever had -- fresh local cheese, local tomatoes and olives, fish pate, a veggie lasagna, honey-baked chicken, traditional carob cake...all served on a beautiful table with unique dishes, surrounding by all things honey! Then Goran gave us a talk about bees and honey, which I as a foodie and baker, found fascinating! His passion for beekeeping and its benefits shines through, and although I'm sure he's given the presentation 5,000 times, he still shows excitement! We watched Goran open the hive, pulling out some honeycomb that we were able to harvest, centrifuge, and put into jars to take home, along with some other reasonably-priced honey products for sale.
The icing on the cake for me...I had mentioned in passing to Goran's son Tomislav that we were klapa music fans (traditional vocal music of Croatia). Towards the end of the day, Goran excused himself, then came back a few minutes later dressed in a klapa singer's outfit! He himself had planned a surprise performance with his own klapa group for us, and they were waiting outside. They treated us to several beautiful songs, and were absolutely wonderful guys. We then said our goodbyes and Goran drove us back to the ferry, waving to us as we left the dock to return to Split. One of those memories that will be with us forever! Fala lipa, Goran, Natasa, and Klapa Kupanica! (Go Hajduk!)

Passion, knowledge and humour
Sep 2019
Goran clearly knows his stuff, he has a lifetimes worth of knowledge and skill but what is really important is he is able to communicate it.

His passion for beekeeping shines through at every moment. He explains all aspects of beekeeping carefully and in just enough detail for those with a casual interest to be kept engaged and at the same time to be interesting to those of us who keep our own hives.

If you add to this mix a great sense of humor its a first class attraction. Lots of informative displays, a well rehearsed and original talk, loads of stuff to buy, and free advice to the visiting beekeeper.

Don't miss it, you wont regret it.

Awesome insight into life of bees
We visited with 4children and even though should have been closed they opened for us!
What an amazing experience-we even saw the Queen in her hive! A real insight into the life of bees with information not aware of-the kids enthralled!
Amazing honey too-the cosmetics felt lovely and I’m still using on my hands and face!
Definitely must visit if on the island!!!!
