Krka national park is absolutely beautiful. November is a great time to go because it's much less crowded. The wine tasting part of the tour was especially fun. All the wines and spirits were really delicious. One of the best parts of the tour was our guide Sandra, who was super knowledgeable and fun and energetic. I had such a good time. Highly recommend.

It was the most enjoyable and breathtaking natural scenery I’ve ever seen in Croatia. Our guide Sandra was excellent. Her bubbly personality and abundance of knowledge and jokes made our time at the park goes by so quickly. I highly recommend her to be your tour guide if you ever plan to visit the Plitvice National Park. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The pace and distance was just right for our group. Sandra was a brilliant guide - patient but kept the pace so we were not late and the route was fantastic as we ended with a grand finale view in the lower falls!

A great activity for those in Split that want to visit Krka National Park. Transport from the bus station to the National park and back was provided. Very friendly tour guide!

It was such a nice trip! Extremely beautiful nature, lots of interesting facts from guides!
