Josip was an excellent guide! He was friendly, funny, and very knowledgeable. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Plitvice and Rastoke before transferring to Split. Everything was timed perfectly, communicated well, and we felt safe all along the way. I would recommend Zico and Josip in the future.

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!

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.
