Amazing Tour

We had a fantastic time on this tour! Our guide was very professional and knowledgeable. We discovered many interesting facts about Plitvice Lakes that we didn’t know about. The village we visited was beautiful and very charming. I loved the atmosphere there. The park itself is much larger than we thought, but thanks to this well-organized tour, everything was taken care of for us. We highly recommend it!


Amazing experience!

There was only myself and one another person on the tour so first of all I was impressed that they still ran the tour and hadn’t contacted us to move to another day to get a van full. We had Bojan as our driver/guide and I completely agree with other reviewers that he clearly enjoys his job and wants his clients to enjoy their day. The two-hour drive there and back went by quickly as he gave us information about the area and the history of Croatia. I had been to the Park in September 2019, so it was interesting to see them in a different season, and as we had blue sky, sunshine, and fresh snow the day I went, they were stunning. I thoroughly enjoyed the day and highly recommend the tour.
