My family enjoyed every aspect of our trip to Croatia. We loved all the places we visited; each place gave us a fuller appreciation of the country and the diversity across regions. Nikola was an absolute pleasure to work with, and he planned a trip that was a perfect fit to our interests and temperament. He was very responsive to our requests in planning the trip.

My family enjoyed every aspect of our trip to Croatia. We loved all the places we visited; each place gave us a fuller appreciation of the country and the diversity across regions. Nikola was an absolute pleasure to work with, and he planned a trip that was a perfect fit to our interests and temperament. He was very responsive to our requests in planning the trip. The itinerary he provided was very detailed, and we never had to second guess where we were going or how to get there. All of our connections and tours went to plan and were extremely well orchestrated. During the trip, Nikola checked in with us daily to make sure things were going well, and he even gave us a surprise visit early in the trip. It was great to meet him in person! He made himself available at all hours and was extremely responsive. He helped negotiate a minor issue when the car we hired was a bit too small for us. And, Nikola went above and beyond to arrange vegan and allergy-free breakfasts for my son at each hotel . We could not have been more pleased with his level of service, attention, and creativity.

All of our walking tours were very good, but we especially enjoyed the ones in Split and Dubrovnik as our guides were very entertaining. The biking and food tour in Korcula was a highlight of the trip. We really enjoyed visiting family farms and orchards and tasting their products and even brought several home with us. Our guide was very fun and adaptable. Highly recommend! We loved all of the boutique hotels; they were well appointed and ideally located to walking the city or town. The Manda Heritage Hotel, La Grisla, and Hotel Camera went out of their way to create vegan breakfasts for my son. They were better than we could have expected - oftentimes, he only gets bread and jam, but each of them either made him special dishes or purchased vegan yogurts or "meats" for him. The Hotel Camera also left us special treats in our room the two nights we were there - it was such a special touch. Hotel Korsal was beautiful, close to Old Town and had a stunning view. We enjoyed many breaks on their terrance. All of the hotels were kind and accommodating and offered us excellent advice.

This was one of our best family trips ever. We highly recommend working with Nikola for anyone wanting to visit Croatia.

La Grisa Bale

Bale-Valle, Istra

Lovely hotel in a location convenient to many of the most interesting towns in Istria. The rooms were very attractive, comfortable, and clean, with new furnishings. The restaurant was also nice, with an attractive outdoor courtyard that was lovely in both the mornings for breakfast and evenings for dinner. The hotel/restaurant and wait staff went out of their way to accommodate my son's dietary restrictions, often cooking him special meals. The desk staff were also helpful and attentive. Highly recommend!

Hotel Camera Split

Split

It was an amazing experience to stay at this charming hotel in an ideal location near to the old town, but in an uncongested and quiet area. It is family run and very personable. The family room was charming and spacious for a family of four. The breakfast went above and beyond to accommodate our son's dietary restrictions. They staff was beyond kind and helpful. And, the nicest touch of all were surprise flowers on our arrival and a surprise fruit tray on our second day of touring. What an amazingly lovely hotel!

Hotel Korsal

Korčula

Stunning views overlooking the water and a fantastic location. The hotel is located only a few minute's walk to the Old Town. It has its own lovely restaurant and there are several others nearby. The hotel staff are very attentive and helpful. The rooms are clean and airy and very comfortable. The outdoor space is a plus; we enjoyed sitting on the terrace overlooking the water between touring and beach visits.

Fantastic personalized tour. This was one of the highlights of our trip. We very much enjoyed visiting the family farms and wineries, hearing their stories, and enjoying tastes of food and drink. We enjoyed the stunning views of the Korcula countryside. Our guide was fun, well connected and well informed of the region. The bike ride was relaxing, with only a few hills for healthy challenge! Our guide was also very flexible and accommodating when one of our family member was not feeling well and needed to end early. Highly recommend!

Hi Shelli, thank you so much for the detailed review! It was great meeting you and hosting you and your family in Croatia, and I am glad to hear this was one of your best family trips! I am also very glad your son was happy with the arranged adjustments to the dietary restrictions.
Hope to see you back in Croatia soon!
