We had the most amazing 10 day trip starting in Dubrovnik, Croatia and ending in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Sarah was our travel specialist who organized and individualized our trip to make it memorable with a great combination of scheduled activities and free time. Sarah chose the most amazing boutique hotels in Dubrovnik, Split, Zadar and Ljubljana in the historic old towns of each city with their own unique charms. You could not pick a better location or more welcoming hotel staff, as each made us feel very welcome and special. We had great tour guides at our destinations, and we especially want to mention Ina. She gave us a very good insight into Croatian life as well as very insightful tour of Split and Trogir. Our personal drivers were very attentive and knowledgeable especially Mario, with vast knowledge and he always exceeded our expectations with his attention to detail. We were very happy to have him two of our days. On our way from Split to Zadar, Sarah organized an authentic Croatian meal at Restoran Vicko, the most amazing family owned farm-to-table restaurant. It is a hidden gem worth the drive. Krka National Park and Plitvice Lakes are definite must sees, the beauty and tranquility of the parks were breathtaking. The Esplanade Hotel in Zagreb was beautiful and did not disappoint. Sarah had nice bottle of wine and chocolates waiting in the room for us, a beautiful touch. On to Slovenia to visit the beautiful Lake Bled, the unbelievable Postojna Caves and interesting Prejama Castle. The weather was perfect in April, we arrived before the summer crowds. We really enjoyed all the places we visited, they were all beautiful with their individual charms. Thank you Sarah for your attention to detail. We will always have our memories of our amazing trip and look forward to returning to explore Croatia and Slovenia more.

Activity Review

Krka was an amazing park of numerous trails and waterfalls. The beautiful blue and turquoise waters were breathtaking. Pictures could not do it justice, you need the sounds and smells of nature to comp;ete the beauty.

Food

Restoran Vicko was an amazing farm to table family restaurant with the most amazing food. The portions were very hearty. This is a hidden gem, where the locals drive an hour on special occasions to eat here. We had a tour of the kitchen, which was very interesting. Highly recommend!
Transport

We had private transportation which was very comfortable.
