Tomi planned an amazing trip. Everyone we met from the Bed and breakfast hosts to the water taxi driver seemed invested in us having a good time and things going smoothly. They showed us fun things to do in the area and answered all our questions. Communication with tomi and Ivana was prompt throughout and it was overall a wonderful experience. The views on hvar, korcula, and the bike to ston were simply incredible. I would work with tomi again!
