Introducing Croatia

Once a secret destination of in-the-know travelers, Croatia is bursting upon the international scene. And for good reason: This small country on the shores of the Adriatic Sea has more than its share of natural wonders, beautiful coastline and picturesque islands.

Highlights of Croatia include beautiful Plitvice Lakes, the historic cities Dubrovnik and Split, and its more than a thousand islands along the beautiful Dalmatian Coast including Hvar, Korcula and many others. Whether you're into local cuisine, natural wonders, history, nightlife or active adventures, Croatia has lots to offer for travelers who seek unique experiences.

Best of croatia in 5 days, Croatia - Oct 18 - Oct 23, 2018

My trip to Croatia went smoothly as planned with the help of Alex. Zero hiccups on all arrangements made. He exactly knew how to select perfect locations and comfortable places to stay. I liked the flexibility of setting the itinerary to fit my preferences or recommendations from Alex. As a solo traveler, the open line between us during the entire trip was definitely a plus! Looking forward to more trips with kimkim's services. 😁

Robert helped us with everything and did an amazing job. Our hotels were just as we had hoped and our itinerary was perfect for our needs. All along our travels, Robert would check on us and make sure there were no glitches. We had a rental car which he had arranged, someone to pick us up at the airport, deliver the rental car, pick up the car when we were done and someone to drive us to the airport. There was no detail left undone! We loved Croatia, especially Dubrovnik. Our vacation was wonderful!

From the start of planning until our return home, Veselka was the most important asset to our amazing time in Croatia. Starting with a general idea of what we wanted to see during our brief 10 day trip overseas, she was able to put together an itinerary that allowed us to see everything we wanted to and so much more. Each question I had during the planning process was answered promptly and thoroughly. She would check in with me at every step of the way to ensure every detail of the itinerary met our goals.

Our car rental pick up upon arrival was smooth and effortless. Each accommodation was pleasant, clean, perfectly located, and memorable. We never had an issue with a reservation or during any check out process. Veselka made herself available during our entire stay and checked in occasionally to ensure all was running smoothly.

Our trip took us by car from Zagreb, to Slovenia, down the coast of Croatia, and even Montenegro. The 3 private, guided tours were the highlight of our adventures, allowing us to get to know each location in a way we wouldn't have been able to on our own. Each guide--Aljaz, Mario, and Edi-- was personable, knowledgeable, and went above and beyond our expectations of each tour.

We made such amazing memories and are so thankful to Veselka for ensuring we could relax and enjoy our time without stressing over any reservation, accommodation, or planning detail. We cannot wait to work with kimkim again and are so pleased with the service provided by Veselka.
