"The visit to Plitvisc lakes and falls were absolutely spectacular. Driving on the open roads is simple and easy. Through the towns can a little more nerve raking. Having a couple of nights in each place helped keep the pace realistic. Be prepared for limited ability for laundry other than the hotel services. Having 3 nights in Trogir was a little more than needed and would have been better 3 nights based in or nearer to Split as this was where most sights were. Overall it was a very interesting experience and well worth it. Croatia is a beautiful country with plenty of natural sights. Being just before the tourist season had its benefits with things being less busy. Just a few times things were not yet open. Some wonderful memories, I would not hesitate to recommend it to a friend."

"All arrangements and hotels were excellent. Everything ran smoothly. However, for the benefit of future clients please note that Hotel Derossi in Trogir and Hotel Tuttorosso in Rovinj do not have car parking facilities and public car parks have to be used - this cost 18 for the two nights at Derossi and 30 approx in Rovinj! Also, finding some of the hotels was something of a challenge - even though we had a sat nav in use. Perhaps some more detailed driving directions would be advantageous. Hotel Villa Nova in Hvar is in the complex of old alleyways and a car cannot get near it. We had to do a lot of asking to find it. Anyway, these are just my thoughts, the whole holiday was terrific, and thank you very much for organising it."

"We'd just like to thank you for such a well organised holiday you gave us and from which we have just come back from Croatia. The hotels were well chosen - plenty of variety - the routes were well thought out - very scenic - and the local knowledge and research was evident everywhere."

"Thank you for your assistance with our recent trip to Croatia. It was a terrific experience and one of our best trips to date. We particularly enjoyed the week sailing in the islands near Split and the coast of the south. Mostar was a bit of a tough place but worth the day. The hotel was certainly not a highlight but passable for a single night. We loved Perast. Slovenia was less enjoyable unfortunately. I would suggest that you caution people regarding the mandatory sticker required for all vehicles. It cost us 150 Euros as a fine as well as the 15 Euro fee. There are no signs nor clue of this when entering the country. The tags are available at bus stations and post offices apparently. Zagreb is also a good experience and a fine historic city to visit. Driving in Croatia is good although the towns are challenging as is parking. All in all a wonderful experience. We would visit again and perhaps rent a sailboat ourselves. We would be interested in Portugal as a future destination. We travel frequently so welcome suggestions. We have booked October and December already (Mexico) Turkey, Italy and Greece are near term destinations for us as well."
