Reviewed 1 week ago Met all the expectations! Learned about the culture, history and economy of Croatia during the road trip. Our tour guide Goran, stopped in every breathtaking spot in the lakes. He had also provide us with a list of the best restaurants in Zagreb for traditional food and additional tips during our stay.

This was a wonderful tour with great pacing and information. Our guide was amazing and did a great job answering all the question we thought to ask. I highly recommend going in the winter as there will be smaller groups, minimal crowds, and you can truly enjoy the nature!

It's winter but still worth of visit Rastoke & Plitvice Lakes National Park. Less people and different scenery. You could walk slowly and enjoy the time there!

We were accompanied on the visit by Iva, a professional, prepared and nice guide. The location is splendid and the experience is worth it!

Amazing trip, would recommend this activity to everyone looking to explore Plitvice!
