    This transfer from Zagreb to Split was perfect! I wanted to see Plitvice Lakes on the way so that’s why I booked this instead of a cheaper bus. The guide picked me up at my hotel and we set off to Plitvice with a shirt coffee stop alike the way. Tin was a wonderful guide and told me so much about the history of the area. He even took me all over the Lakes which I wasn’t expecting so that really helped. I didn’t have to figure out the best ways to go. He showed me! Once in Split he helped me find my hidden little apartment and even carried my bag upstairs for me. Door to door service and such a pleasant guy. I couldn’t have asked for a better day. Thank you!

It was a great tour! Because it is private, we can respond to various occasions according to our tastes, and respond quickly to questions and requests in advance. Sasha, who accompanied me on the day, was a wonderful professional guide and had a lot of interesting experiences unexpectedly in Plitvice. Plitvice is a land park that is much larger than I imagined. It was really nice to arrange this tour.

Fantastic trip! My driver was prompt, friendly, and knowledgeable. Plus, I appreciated all the offers to be my camera man. The convenience of a private drive to Rastoke, Plitvice, and then ending in Split from Zagreb was great. Highly recommend. I would even consider skipping Rastoke and the boat ride to check out the upper lakes also.

The guide Marco was very kind and I was really grateful.
