Nice tour
, Jul 2021
Daniela was very helpful and responsable guide. The trip was fun and everything went well except a bit delay due to other tour guests. We were very lucky to have Daniela.
great place to visit, but with the better guide
, Jul 2021
Great place to visit. The problem was that we realistically had a driver and no guide. Also, the hike was poorly supported by the driver who did not direct people on the trail, did not provide commentary. We got left behind on a trail/got somewhat lost. The driver made light jokes about us getting left behind. Again - beautiful place to visit. Viator needs to be more selective when it comes to local operators.

A Day At Plitvice!!
, Jul 2021
This UNESCO site has been on my list of places to visit and I’m so glad I did! I must admit that going in July meant it was much hotter than expected but still worth all the sweat 😅 The tour guide (Domo) knew the lakes really well and it was effortless getting around the park. We made necessary stops along the 3hr car journey from Split for snacks and bathroom breaks. I highly recommend this tour and seeing the beautiful blue waters!!
A MUST see excursion
, Jul 2021
Wonderful tour!!! The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. He gave walking alternatives for people, who couldn’t walk the 6 mile tour. He was not in a rush but told us to slow down and take in all of the beauty.
Best experience

Magical day in Plitvice
, Jul 2021
We had a perfect, magical tour in this special park. This is completely worth the long drive to and from Split to Plitvice. Visitors to Croatia should not leave without experiencing these extraordinary lakes and waterfalls. Our guide Domo was a delight and made the experience even more worthwhile.
