I'd just like to say thank you for arranging the Croatia trip, I had an amazing time and would do it again in a heartbeat :)
Ashvinder Kaur reviewing Dubrovnik Kayaking Short Break
Hotel More was absolutely wonderful. What an incredible place! I think we got lucky with the room in which we stayed (jacuzzi on the balcony overlooking the sea) but we regret not having eaten in the hotel itself as the restaurant we found further down the coast was truly awful (not your fault though, of course!)
Lopud turned out to be our favourite island. It was a sweet place with a lovely, whimsical old dog. It's a pity about the grand monstrosity of a hotel on the other side of the island - totally soulless and so glad we don't go for that type of holiday. We had a few issues with the aircon initially but it was sorted.
Our host was great (forgotten the name now, sorry). We really enjoyed the homecoming at his family house with a little live music. We would have liked a little more time kayaking but the weather was an issue.
The Croatian food wasn't too great so it was definitely worth going to Dubrovnik, if only for just a short while, as the restaurant we went to improved the experience (and Dubrovnik was pretty incredible!). However, easily the best food of the whole trip was Hotel Bozica on Sipan.
A lovely trip on the whole.

We had a super holiday, thank you.

Three 50+ year olds had a fab time on the Croatian Island Hopping Holiday in June 2012. The trip was extremely well organised, but we didn't feel as if we were being over regimented. The kayaks were well maintained and we had the option of singles or doubles. The kayaking was challenging, due to unusually high winds, but was manageable if not a little tiring. We paddled between 12 and 19km/day. On a very windy day, the water activities had to be cancelled, but they were replaced with an equally challenging and enjoyable hike. We had the services of the guide for an extra day at the end of the week, which should have been a free day, this was an unexpected bonus to compensate for the missed day at sea. The accommodation was basic but adequate, our room on Lopud didn't have air-conditioning, which was fine in June, but may be uncomfortable in August. Other rooms in Lopud did have aircon. The food was plentiful, very fresh and lovely.

Brilliant in every respect.
Robert Waddington reviewing Croatia Island Hopping Holiday
I really loved this trip. Croatia is simply stunning and I will certainly go back there. Kayaking is a brilliant way to explore the beautiful coast. The highlights for me were the simple pleasures - exploring caves; playing around with my waterproof camera; the satisfaction of paddling over to the mainland in the heat of the day and once there, diving off the harbor walls.
I was already confident in a kayak so found the pace easy. Our guides were friendly, relaxed and helpful. The only downside for me for a spot of seasickness on the first day, but luckily the waters were much calmer for the remainder of the trip.
The food was typical Mediterranean fare - tasty and simple. My accommodation was just as I expected, a basic, comfortable guest-house with a friendly hug from my landlady at the end of my stay!
Can you please pass on my thanks to the excellent mainland-based tour guide who put himself out to drop me in Dubrovnik old town on Thursday and looked after my bags so I could explore, before driving me the airport that evening. That's the sort of helpful, friendly touch that you wouldn't get with a bigger company.
5 out of 5 for everything!
Anne-Marie Critien reviewing Dubrovnik Kayaking Short Break
Amazing time, 6 of us joined the group, the two guides were so lovely friendly and very helpful. The guest houses on both islands were very traditional and very nice and the owners so welcoming. Ben and Anna at Tourdust made organising this group holiday very easy by constantly keeping in touch and answering questions etc. The kayaks and equipment was very good and each day was an adventure. I would highly recommend Tourdust to others. Thankyou for a very good holiday. Anne's group Norwich

Would rate the trip as 6 out of 5. Don't think I can say anymore than that. Had a fantastic time with great paddling. My only problem was we didn't stay for the week. I will recommend it to as many people as I can and I will return. Great value for money.
Theresa Torrance reviewing Dubrovnik Kayaking Short Break
A great trip. There was a choice of single and double kayaks which were of good quality. The trips included a mix of coastal exploration and short crossings which was a good combination.. A star feature was a trip to a family small holding where we were fed copious quanties of home grown vegetables, goat and chicken reared on the farm and washed down with home made red wine and an interesting selection of liquers. At the end of the meal the guide got out is guitar and played and sang some classic English folky type songs. Accomodation but modest but fine and there was a good selection of restuarants. Obala on Lopad and the hotel on Sipad were very good value for a upmarket meal whilst the other restuarants we visited all had good fish.
Angela Milne reviewing Croatia Island Hopping Holiday
The guides on our trip to Croatia were really fun, knowledgable and helpful. They seemed to know absolutely everyone on the islands which was really nice and they always tried to include everybody in everything, even if their first languages weren't english. The guides were awesome.
The accomodation was very nice and authentic, everything you could ask for was provided and the views from the balcony were quite something
The pace and amount of paddling were good, shame one of the days we couldnt get out because of the bad weather which made the next day a bit harder but still very enjoyable.
The whole holiday as a package was very good. Everything was organised well even when the tourdust van broke down at the start, a replacement form of transport from dubrovnik was straight there. I would thoroughly recommend this trip to anyone interested in kayaking at all, because as a beginner i was slightly nervous at the start but thought i become quite good at the end, which is a testement to the guides and the trip really. I just wish i can get enough money to go again next year!!
David Langley reviewing Dubrovnik Kayaking Short Break
I had a fantastic group, the local knowledge of the guides was invaluable in ensuring the group had the best possible experience. Great paddling, great guides, great good, great time had by all.
TonyLitson reviewing Croatia Island Hopping Holiday
Sea kayaking is the ideal way to explore these beautiful islands. Warm clear seas, fantastic local cuisine and a very helpful company with local knowledge of all the best places to visit and eat.
Maureen Birch reviewing Croatia Island Hopping Holiday
This was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. We enjoyed the kayaking whch was quite manageable even for a couple in their late fifties. The weather was brillinant and we met some really nice people. What more could you want - a bit of white water?
Neil Badger reviewing Croatia Island Hopping Holiday
This is a great experience to see the real Croatia. I had never been on a group holiday before and was a little hesitant, however Filip and Radovan the guides were incredibly patient and I was blessed with a fantastic fun group.
