EXTRA DAY IN DUBROVNIK

Recently my parents, friend and I went on a tour of Croatia using this company. It was recommended by a friend. It was a 9-day trip (29th October 2022 till 06th November 2022) starting from Zagreb, Varazdin &Trakoscan tour, Istria, Plitvice lakes, Sibenik, Split, Trogir, Montenegro, and Dubrovnik. The boss, Mr. Aleksandar, provided us with a Mercedes V-Class Avantgarde and a great driver during our tour. The itinerary was great, and not too hectic. The hotels were centrally located and near restaurants and all the happening places. We could easily walk around these places even late at night and it was very safe.
The tour guides provided in every city were very knowledgeable and gave us interesting facts about the places. Thank you for the awesome tour guides Ivana, Mirjana, Frane, Tihomir, and Bojan.
Mr. Kruno, our driver, during the 9 days tour, was a great driver always punctual with a warm smile. My dad admired his patience and careful driving skills.
Mr. Aleksandar kept track of our journey and always enquired about our situations. He even recommended some good traditional food at the restaurant called Peka in Dubrovnik, which we are grateful for, and Mr. Kruno took us there even though it was after his working hours.
The whole tour was awesome, without any hitch, and it was beyond our expectations. Everything was superb and no words can describe the beautiful places that we visited, the fascinating natural scenery of the sea, mountains, historical places, and buildings. We never knew Croatia was such a beautiful country. We highly recommend to all our friends out there to use this company. The services provided are definitely more than 5 stars.
