Ivana our tour guide was very organised and always ready to assist us in anything we needed, he gave us a good lecture on the history of Croatia and the neighbouring countries.
When it was needed due to one day of strong winds, the captain diverted us to other beautiful island and The next day we sailed to the places we missed, we saw and enjoyed all the places in out itinerary. The boat was very conformable, clean and we enjoyed all our friendly passengers.

The weather was perfect and the stops were all interesting. More importantly the boat that we were on and the captain and crew were excellent.

Ivan was an excellent guide. He was very attentive to everyone on board and always made sure that the current agenda was known as well as the next days agenda was available and announced. This helped us to plan for what we would be seeing and doing as well as what was coming up.

Ivan was well schooled on Croatia - geography, history, food, wine, etc. It was enjoyable learning about Croatia.

Ivan was very patient and didn't loose his temper even when some guests were slow to show up at designated places and times.

The boat was better than we expected, very comfortable and the meals and service from all the staff were of a very high standard. Deanna was excellent, she was always available for enquiries, very good humoured and good fun, she understood the needs of everyone on the ship and made sure she was looking after everyone and communicating all the plans each day. She was also good company socially and on board. I would say that she was probably one of the best Guides or Reps we have ever had.

We really enjoyed it. Right mix of free and structured time. We would recommend it to anyone. Boat was as described, facilities of a very high standard.

Weather conditions were variable and the communication b/w the captain and the guide needs improvement. When the whether was influencing the plan it wasn't unusual for there to be 3 different stories circulating on the boat as to what was to happen next depending upon who had talked to Ivan when.

We got the below deck cabin we paid for. We heard that some on the boat rec'd an upgrade from the Premium package to our Deluxe package. I think because they had on deck cabins in the Premium they received on deck in the Deluxe which meant they paid less than us for better cabins. Didn't detract from our holiday.

Drinks were not included in the Captain's dinner on the final night, this needed to be better communicated before the event. They also settled the tab before the Captain's dinner and then we needed to settle the Captains dinner tab the next morning. This is double handling and makes no sense. Tips were handed in before the Captain's dinner, not sure if this influences the above.

We found our own way to and from the harbour in Split. FYI two groups that I know of had transfer problems. One (2 English girls) booked through Flight Centre and I believe this was via yourselves. Mind you the other party saw one of the Games of Thrones stars at the airport and he too appeared to be struggling with his transfer.

Last question below is an n/a as I wouldn't expect such a short tour to achieve this.

He was also extremely knowledgeable, humorous and very patient with everyone. I can't say enough positive things, because of our outstanding experience we would definitely consider another group tour with On The Go. MoMo, you're the best.

He was able to answer all of my questions and his knowledge of Morocco is quite extensive. He shared with us a lot of rich Moroccan and Berber culture and I found it so interesting. His friendly and proactive attitude led everyone in the group to be fond of him and even become friends.
