A couple of hour on the olive groves trails was superb. We loved bike riding on the trail with my friends when we visited the place. Well labelled trails with refreshing feeling on the trail. Unforgettable moments to live for and great friends to go cycling with. we were completely grateful for the guide
Everything was as the guide stated. My kids loved the Rova Beach especially for its beautiful pebbles. We visited the Moon Trail and it was as if we were on the moon!
I love islands and when I saw this on the guide I was eager to try it out. The City of Krk is rich of history and the City Walls justifies it. It is an amazing place to visit tour.
I really thank myself for using the guide. It was so efficient. I got so curious after reading this guide. It gave a well detailed information about the places to visit in the Island of Krk. I discovered the Moon trail through the guide and its beauty and creativity was mind blowing. It made my trip here very exceptional.
I'm glad we used this guide to tour this place, The green island as it is popularly known was one of the places that we visited on our trip to the place and it was worth the wait. The place is ideal for hikes and walks and even meditations. We went as a group and even enjoyed team building activities.
The beach was the only place i was eager to go to and it didn't disappoint me at all. The atmosphere at the beach was 'out of this world' and i enjoyed surfing at the sea on the windy days. Could not stop thinking of my time at the beach when we left and would love to return.
The guide features an iconic narration of how this Island represents the remains of a bling brother preserved by God as he punished his deceitful brother. It is a fun and peaceful island that i was thrilled to tour.
