I LOVED this so much! Met at the spot, took a bus (very comfortable) to Krka from Split and took in the beautiful scenery. Sandra was our tour guide and she was phenomenal. Gave us a bunch of addition info about the park that was very interesting. Mike was our driver and he was excellent! Then went to another little town (forget the name) where we had lunch & then headed to the wine tasting. DEFINITELY DO THE WINE TASTING! SO worth it. Family owned spot and the wonder was an adorable old man super passionate about what he does. Included cheese, bread and olive oil tasting as well. I bought multiple bottles for a great price. Sandra really made this experience incredible - highly recommend!!
