I am a travel specialist for Croatia, profiled in guest relations and recognizing the needs of travelers. I believe that travel is pretty well summed in one quote: " Not all those who wander are lost." Wander and explore.

A TRULY MEMORABLE HOLIDAY — HVALA ANTE!

From the 2 weeks of planning to the duration of our holiday, Ante went well above and beyond his role of local specialist, which we never expected from someone we met for the first time!

He was consistently available to answer any and all questions; providing useful advice and numerous options for all aspects of the trip — activities, dining, transportation & alternatives when the weather presented setbacks. Indeed, despite thunderstorms delaying our transit via Zagreb, he kept us updated via messages on the status of the subsequent flights and ensured our safe arrival. Ante hand-picked our tour guides to best fit our requirements and personality, even guiding us through Split when he could have easily found someone to take his place — putting in extra effort with no hesitance. Throughout our numerous holiday stops, he would send regular messages to ensure our safe arrival and that all transportation and activities went over smoothly; always courteous and never forceful!

This holiday was also very special to me, because of my intention to propose to my girlfriend (now fiancé) — Ante proved a great asset; providing numerous ideas for romantic venues and settings throughout the trip, culminating in a wonderful sunset dinner atop Srđ Mountain overlooking the beautiful city of Dubrovnik where she would say yes! In her words: "the proverbial cherry on top, making an already fantastic holiday... perfect!"

Thanks to Ante's positive attitude, friendly demeanor, willingness to help, and passion for his role gave us peace of mind, but also a truly personal level of attention reserved to family and friends: which is how we both felt after leaving Croatia — we visited a truly beautiful country and wonderful friend!

Hi Andrés, thank you very much for this beautiful review. I am really glad that all of our "secret" planning gave a wonderful result, both in trip experience and the proposal :)

I enjoyed every second we've been able to spend together during your stay and it was a real pleasure and privilege to work and meet both of you. Wonderful, easy going, and a great couple :) ( hope that you managed to talk her into GoT )

Wish you all the best in the future and see you when I come to UAE.
Thank you once again - friend :)

Kind regards,
Ante

Sailing and island hopping the dalmatian coast, Croatia - May 16 - May 22, 2018

Traveler: mike h. - Local specialist: Ante Drmic

Ante did a fantastic job tailoring the trip to our needs. Allen and his wife Natalia the owners of Avocado were amazing as well. The islands we visited ( Mljet, Havar, Korchula, Saipan) and meals cooked on board were so much better than anticipated.
Allen has so many toys (seabob, electric bikes and paddle boards) you do not need to book any tours.

Ante Drmic, local specialist, responded to this review:

Hey Mike, I am really glad you and your lovely family enjoyed Croatia and the trip. Alen and Natalia are really amazing, I definitely agree with that.

I tried to make everything suit your needs, so your great review makes it a great satisfaction. Thank you very much for your kind words.

It would be a pleasure to see you in Croatia again one day since you guys are really nice, lovely and thankful, so feel free to contact me if you ever decide to come back.

Kind regards from sunny Split :)
