Supetar cemetery

Reviewed By CFEIII - Austin, Texas

On my first day on Brac island, I was looking for a good place to watch the sunset and wandered by the mausoleum. I didn't go in, but was impressed with the structure. I realized it was a cemetery of some sort, but had to go back and read about it to find out what it was.

Supetar Bay

Reviewed By UseR T

Been twice and my second experience of Supetar has been disgusting. Everywhere has no set of customer service, the only smile you get out of anyone is if you hand them money. Have never experienced people so ignorant and rude in my entire life. Restaurants have us qaiting 20 minutes and never returning causing us to get up and leave money on the table or just ignore us. Studenac service do not even acknowledge you and slam change down onto the counter. The people there while rude are also horrid, sitting in a cocktail bar in the evening only to have a bunch of youngsters take several photos of us and laugh. There is also very little to do other than eat and drink and lie on sunbeds it seems, no attractions other than sports, fun!
Everywhere also seems a bit shabby around the edges and the people dont seem to care, there is no pride in anything in Supetar, service a prime example.
You'll only get good service in the hotel, where we have enjoyed a few meals. I could go on, but its really not worth it.

Another brilliant excursion with this company!
The two of us were, once again, collect from the port and returned there after the trip.
What an excellent, interesting way to spend a morning. A drive across the island taking in beautiful countryside and Forests of black pines followed by the walk down to the monastery. The monastery was fascinating, the building itself, it's history, the setting... everything about it. The walk back up again is strenuous, especially in the heat and we were grateful to Dina, our guide for her patience and regular stops in the shade! Next it was a short drive to Vidova gora, the Islands highest peak... this time it's a fairly short walk from the car park to the summit. The view is incredible, looking down into Bol and Zlatni Rat beach, over to the island of Hvar and beyond... jaw-dropping. Dina is a superb guide... she is local and very knowledgeable and passionate the island of Brač. During our time in the car and on the walks Dina pointed out things of interest and answered our questions, her English is excellent and communication was no problem at all... I cannot recommend this company highly enough!

Irante

Reviewed By Wandering-scot_1 - Edinburgh, United Kingdom

This review reflects more on the company than the tour. When we arrived we heard another gentleman asking if the tour was going ahead as it was windier than the previous day and trips had been cancelled due to the weather. The rep assured the man it was fine so the group (14 in total, including 5 kids) trotted along to the boat. After boarding, the skipper informed us that, as it was going to get windier later, it was better to change the tour and go straight to the blue caves. The general consensus was acceptance that the skipper knew best.
As the trip progressed the choppy waters led to many green/grey faces with a couple of adults being physically sick and a small child curling up in to a ball on the deck.
When we eventually arrived at the blue caves and folk staggered on to little port there was a general sense of relief as we thought we'd done the worst bit, little did we know.
The trip progressed, folk starting to recover and, when boarding after lunch, there was quite a jolly mood amongst the group. The boat took off for the final bit of the tour, however as soon as it left port the front was riding up then crashing down with an almighty thunk and water pouring over the front. At the point that a wave crashed over the front of the boat and one of the young girls injured her knee after flying in the air and bouncing back on to the boat even the skipper decided enough was enough and pulled in to a small harbour/cove. After much discussion the skipper decided it wasn't safe to continue and took us back to Hvar, where we had to wait for 3 hours for the catamaran to take us back to Brac, then a taxi back to Supetar.
Although a pretty horrific experience (much worse for those with kids) up to this point it was fairly well managed (organized chaos probably a better way to describe it) with Laura, the skippers mate, trying her best. At this point it was a case of 'sh1t happens' and it seemed like the company were trying their best to make amends, rather naïve thinking. Apparently Laura and the skipper are contracted by the company to do the tour and not actual employees. When we went to the dock to speak to the actual company rep we saw a few fellow passengers were there before us to complain. The tone was set when, after the dutch lady pointed out it was clearly unsafe to send anyone out on the water let alone her family with young kids the rep waved her phone and replied 'look, you are not on the news, it must be all okay'.
There followed a number of back sliding comments, all along the lines of 'we are not responsible for the weather' (we responded that we weren't saying they were, but as a professional boat tour company they should be able to review the forecast and say if it was suitable for a tour to go ahead), 'you did most of the stops' (we did stop at the blue caves and Hvar, but its hard to enjoy these things when you have been thrown around a boat for 1 1/2 hours and been ill. The tour wasn't a checklist but meant to be a fun day excursion) and ' we will not refund you, we need to pay for the petrol and for the crew' (it was pointed out that they wouldn't have incurred that cost if they had cancelled the trip as they should have done).
Overall, the attitude of the two reps was condescending and patronizing bordering on aggresive. They didn't accept any responsibility for the trip or the concerns of any of the passengers, and of the view that as we had been to 3 out of the 5 stops the trip was complete. They did refund the 70 Kuna for the cost of the ferry, and offered a 30 euro refund, which nobody felt was acceptable. During this they did try to contact the manager who had gone AWOL and apparently wasn't answering his phone...
Side note - The skipper said, with 10 years experience, it was the worst conditions he had experienced. The fact he changed the trip before it had started, and that they are told by the company whether to go ahead or not (it is the company's decision not the boat crews) indicate that it was clear the trip shouldn't have gone ahead, but Irante insisted it did rather than cancel and lose the money. You make your own mind up as to why this is, and if you're happy to trust this company with your family's safety.
Brief summary of the tour points
Blue caves - Really are amazing, but a very short trip. You take a small boat in, see the cave, turnaround and come back again. Great to see but I would recommend you tie this up as part of other activities as you might be disappointed doing a couple of hours round trip just for the 5 minutes in the cave.
Green caves - We never actually went in to these. This was due to the general wellbeing of the tour and also the skippers comments 'these are the green caves. You can swim to them if you want, it will cost you 10 euros to go in, but the water is the same as here and its just a hole in the wall'. Made me chuckle :D
Hvar - A nice place and well worth a visit.Much bigger town than Supetar and the fortifications looked impressive. For me, a day trip was enough as seemed more for folk in their twenties with a few stag and Hen partys kicking about
Stiniva - Nice enough. The boat pulls up and you can swim to the shore where you have a pleasant cove. That's about it really, you go, swim a bit, take a few pictures (it is picturesque) and come back again.

Church is small, quaint, and charming. Don't forget to dress appreciates you!
I enjoyed the statue of Mother Theresa on the side of the church.
Also, the bell tower is very pretty. My husband climbed up with our sons and said it was a fantastic view. Be aware that when the bells ring and you are up on the tower, it will be very loud!

This route is truly a one day, whole day speedboat experience. You depart at 8 AM, and go island hopping to 6 Islands. During the day you will see many attractions like the BLUE CAVE, GREEN CAVE, STINIVA, BUDIKOVAC, ST.CLEMENT'S and the well known HVAR town. This is surely the best way to get the most of your vacation :)

Reviewed By Ian M - Darlington, United Kingdom

Having decided to visit Brac, and cycle on the island, had looked up cycles rentals and opted for this one. Surprised to see them at port as well as further round the bay, although think port office is only for motorized transport. Service was efficient and there was no issues with paying once back etc. Bikes ok if well used and while we had our own helmets, these were also available
