Mario was so helpful from start to finish planning and executing our trip to Croatia. We travelled from Zagreb to Dubrovnik via Plitvice Lakes, Zadar and Split amongst others. Frane was our driver, he was brilliant fun and nothing was too much trouble – he became more like a good friend. All of the hotels that Mario booked were perfect and we enjoyed the private tours in each city. He also arranged horse riding, cycling and trips to Plitvice and Krka which we absolutely loved. Thank you so much to Mario and Frane and we would recommend in a heartbeat such lovely people.
Trip of a lifetime! Our driver Ivo was so polite and patient with us as we tend to be very slow sometimes. Mario met us and we were really pleased with his service. Recommended!
We changed itinerary a bit, as we didn’t want to move often. Everything was great, except those rainy day at Plitvise Lake.
Our driver Ivo took good care of us. The entire tour was comfortable and not hectic at all. Mario gave us the van we requested due to our luggage. The local guides were very good in general. Recommend this agency for private tours.
We can’t describe how happy I’m that I found this agency online. Thank you all, we had a great time, especially in Split!
