This is a great shout if you need to transfer from Zagreb to Split. We had a private pick up to take us to the lakes, and then we joined onto a lake tour there. On our tour the park entry and private transfer were all included. We took the bus with the tour back to split but felt nice to do something on the day of transfer! Parks are also a must see.

We enjoyed this tour very much for its thoroughness and the competence of the guide. We absolutely recommend it to those who do not have much time to visit the city and want to optimize the time available. The guide can possibly recommend additional visits to museums or other attractions to do independently.

Super convenient! Instead of wasting a day for travelling from Zagreb to Split, you get to see Plitvice Lakes! Our guide, Ivanka, was superb! Very knowledgeable and kind. This tour was perfectly timed! The transportation was very comfortable. The drivers were excellent as well! Plitvice is sooo beautiful.

Rastoke is a short stop on the way to Plitvice. Beautiful village. Then Plitvice was more that i expected. amazing reservation, a lot of walk on a wooden path way. scenery was amazing.

A must-see trip for every visitor who comes to Croatia, a team with experience, excellent and courteous guides, worth the money, great pleasure.
