1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Impossible to pick out one highlight, it was a blissful week with a perfect balance of activities and relaxation. Matko and family made us feel part of their lives and did everything to fit the activities and set the pace around what worked best for us.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

You can totally relax knowing everything is arranged and safe. Recommend aqua shoes or similar as the beautiful beach is rocky and you will want to enjoy the clear blue sea.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes supported local, small scale tourist business which encourages enjoyment of the natural beauty of the island with a minimal environmental footprint.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Highly recommended for families of all ages and small groups who want to really get to know Vis and itís people and enjoy a perfect balance of cycling, kayaking, walking, yoga at a flexible pace with plenty of time to relax. Delicious home cooked food.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

For us the most memorable part of the vacation was that we were treated like friends rather than paying guests, showing us the culture, history, sights and wildlife of the Island. We were able to do as much or as little as we wanted with or without a member of the team, all of whom do their upmost to make your vacation one to remember.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Try to get as fit as you can to get the most out of the activities on offer. Pack casual clothes and insect repellent.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

All the team are local, the food is either grown by Matko on his allotment or sourced locally and used to produce local dishes. The wine is also locally produced and like the food is organic. They are openly concerned about their environment and actively promote its improvement and preservation.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Excellent, it was fun, informative, active but relaxing. Nothing is too much trouble for Matko and his team and they made sure our week with them was exactly how we wanted it to be.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

It is difficult to say what the most memorable part of our vacation was because it was so full of variety, with so many great but very different memories. Kayaking to small islands and into a stunning cave, pierced by a single beam of sunlight. Beautiful beaches and coves, snorkelling in crystal clear water. Relaxing and hanging out in the old town. Hiking over hills and delving into a nuclear fallout shelter! And fabulous food!

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Matko and his team are very relaxed and happy for you to do whatever you want. You can use their help or explore alone. They are very good at judging how much you want or need them to be helping or accompanying you. Don't be shy to just say what you want even if it is to be alone or veg out on the beach. You don't have to rock climb a mountain and then freedive to 50 metres, every day! ;-)

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

We were very pleased to be at a place owned and run by local people and everything we did supported local business. The food was all very good, very healthy and locally produced.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

A fantastic, varied vacation that we both enjoyed very much. Matko made everything we wanted to do very easy. Activities were available and they were all great, with as much or as little support and involvement as you want, from Matko and his team. The food was excellent, including some of the best fish I have ever had.
