A must visit country to explore!
Sep 18 - Sep 25, 2023
We had a wonderful time during our trip to Croatia. The country was beautiful, the people were kind, and the food was delicious. Our itinerary allowed for a good mix of rest and exploring. We enjoyed activities off the beaten path and some classic sites. The island of Korčula was our absolute favorite and would love to spend more time there. Our tour of the island with culinary tastes was amazing. We were so happy to visit Komparak and then have lunch in the country side. All hotels were clean, well located, and a joy to stay in. Our drivers were friendly and we much appreciated being driven around. We had a small issue with 1 ferry ride but Anna Maria was able to quickly resolve and we caught the ferry on time. Would highly recommend booking a trip!
Very spacious, clean and modern room. The host was incredibly kind and made huge, delicious breakfast each morning. The location felt very safe and allowed for quiet sleeping while still being within walking distance of many sites. We would stay here again!
Huge resort which is a bit of a change for us but we ended up enjoying very much. The room was very spacious, modern and clean. It had a nice balcony where we could see boats passing on the water. The pool area was very nice with a small beach nearby. The staff were very nice and helpful. It is a 10min walk from town but easy if you go around the hill (and not up & over it). As this resort is on a hillside there are a lot of stairs and levels. Poolside food and breakfast buffet were delicious and there is something for everyone.
The staff here are SO friendly and helpful. The hotel is an easy walk from the ferry and well located in town. Due to it being a historic building, the rooms are quiet small and it can be noisy but each room is well laid out and earplugs are provided. Breakfast was yummy and the welcome gift of cookies were our favorite.
The rooms at this hotel are very spacious, modern and clean! The welcome cookies were delightful and the staff friendly. There isn't much nearby but don't let that deter you. The food and drinks at the Piano bar were flavorful and the breakfast buffet was huge. We also ate at the attached Taj Mahal restaurant which is an absolute must try. We took a bus back from the old city one day which was only a few minutes long and very easy to navigate.
The waterfalls are breathtaking! Our tour guide was friendly and allowed for ample time to explore the park and then take a short boat ride to Trogir. The park can become crowded so we were happy to have traveled on the edge of peak season and while not overwhelming warm. The walk is several levels but not difficult or too strenuous. The short boat ride was enjoyable and it was nice to explore another small town.
Hands down, our favorite experience during the trip! A short ride to Komparak allowed us to experience a private tour tasting honey, jam, olive oil and gin. Our host was welcoming, friendly, and knowledgeable. We purchased several products to take back home with us. Our driver then picked us up to drive into the countryside for lunch. The lunch was incredible - sitting outside near the garden when our lunch was grown. The staff were friendly, the food was amazing and we relaxed while enjoying the sites, smells and tastes. We took our time and then called our driver when nearing the end of our meal who promptly came to pick us up.
Fun tour tasting wine and experiencing the local culture. Small group was the perfect size and it was nice to meet others from around the world. All winery hosts were kind and inviting; excited to tell us about their culture and treat us to their products. The train ride between wineries was fun even when it started raining. This made our trip even more memorable and we were able to warm up with some spirits in addition to the wine. The bus picked us up and dropped us off directly at our hotel so that was very accommodating.
We really enjoyed this private tour of the old city. Our host was incredibly knowledgeable and gave us an indepth look into the city, beyond what we could have learned simply walking around ourselves. She customized the trip to what we found interesting and gave us tips on where to grab lunch after and tour the city walls.
