This was my first time using a travel agency for a trip. I've always been a very independent traveler and felt that using a travel agent would take away some of that spontaneity and freedom. In fact, it only enhanced the trip. Bruno arranged all the hotels and car rental for us, which took a lot of the stress away.

This was my first time using a travel agency for a trip. I've always been a very independent traveler and felt that using a travel agent would take away some of that spontaneity and freedom. In fact, it only enhanced the trip. Bruno arranged all the hotels and car rental for us, which took a lot of the stress away. And he was always there on WhatsApp to send us suggestions (always with easy-to-use directions), even helping us to figure out how to pay for parking, so that we were able to maximize our time enjoying the holiday and not spending wasted hours trying to find a place.
This was our first trip to southern Dalmatia and we saw a lot. I like to think of it as a great "taste" of what Dalmatia has to offer, and I can't wait to go back for more now that I have an idea of all there is to offer there. From Cavtat to Split and back again, it was all wonderful, the food (the oysters!), the sea, the hikes and bike rides of Mljet island, the fortifications of Ston and Dubrovnik, (and all the stairs). Especially lovely (and something I probably wouldn't have found on my own) was the Tristeno Arboretum and its Roman Aqueduct, reminding us just how long people have sailed these shores.
In addition we both really enjoyed our guide Pero's wonderfully detailed tour of the Diocletian's Palace in Split was both informative and filled with dry Dalmatian humor. In short, this could have been a mess of a holiday with us lost and frustrated, but thanks to Bruno and his team, we were able to pack a huge amount into a week.

Hotel Review
Hotel Cavtat
Cavtat

Staff were very helpful and friendly. Room was small but clean with a beautiful view off of our balcony. Only I wish there were more counterspace and a shower that was not one of those tiny boxes that you can't bend down in. The breakfast was the best!

Authenticity & Character
It's a fine modern hotel. I don't know how that is authentic.
Location
View was wonderful. Very easy to get to from the Dubrovnik airport.
Staff
Cleanliness & Comfort
More spaces to put things and a bigger shower would be nice.
