Dalmatian coast self-drive tour - 12 days, Croatia - Jun 7 - Jun 18, 2019
This was an amazing trip. Our itinerary was great with enough time to really get a feel for each place. Our lodgings were great, and all were located close to all major attractions. We spent time in Dubrovnik, Hvar, Split, Zadar, Plitvice Lakes, and Zagreb. All were great. Our personalized tours in Split with Nives and in Zagreb with Vlatka were fantastic and really informative. Our lodging in Hvar was especially great. Our host, Mila, was so welcoming. She invited us in to her kitchen with her and her friends and we shared wine and food and wonderful conversation. Our wine and dinner tour in Hvar was great with a great dinner in an abandoned village above Hvar town, Malo Grablje. What a neat experience strolling through the ruins up to restaurant with great service and great scenery. Though crowded, the national parks we visited (Krka and Plitvice) were beautiful, and I highly recommend them. Veselka planned our trip wonderfully. She was responsive to our questions and concerns. She personally met at us the ferry port in Split to take us to our lodging. There was one minor glitch in trip requiring us to rush to cabs to get to a ferry. Veselka responded rapidly and resolved the issue. When we arrived at our ferry destination three hours later our greeter presented us with an envelop of cash to reimburse our cab fare. I could not have asked for a better vacation and a better planner than Veselka. I highly recommend her and her company. Anyone uncertain about visiting Croatia should get over it. It is a beautiful country with wonderful people, incredible history, great roads, and great food!
