Amazing Tour

It was a great tour! Because it is private, we can respond to various occasions according to our tastes, and respond quickly to questions and requests in advance. Sasha, who accompanied me on the day, was a wonderful professional guide and had a lot of interesting experiences unexpectedly in Plitvice. Plitvice is a land park that is much larger than I imagined. It was really nice to arrange this tour.
