    Views are amazing!

    Toni was a great tour guide and made sure we got there safely and saw all the important parts of the National Park because it is a huge area. It is a great small group tour so you don't have to wait for such a large group. We were able to speed through the line for the most popular spots which is great.
    Wonderful visit
    , Aug 2022
    Wonderful visit, clearly the place to go if you want to see beautiful landscapes in Croatia. Special thanks to our guide Igor who is very passionate and made us fall in love with the lakes.
    Stunning and beautiful trip
    , Aug 2022
    The guild was very nice and picked beautiful routes. This park is extremely beautiful and a must go.
    Beautiful lakes, not worth 8 hours of driving
    , Aug 2022
    Overall, a fairly positive experience. We took the large 6-row passenger van from Split and it was very comfortable compared to taking a large coach bus which would not have seemed as intimate. We are traveling with our 18 & 15-yr old kids to Croatia from the US. We have been to Iceland, Israel, Dominican Republic, etc so are familiar with group tours, beautiful sites, etc. Plitvice was beautiful with bright blue natural lakes & waterfalls and has planks or packed ground surface so don't need hiking shoes, just comfortable walking shoes. And, quite a bit of it was shaded so even on a hot day it wasn't bad. We took a couple of breaks which helped because it's a lot of long hiking up a lot of stairs and inclines. This trip however was far too long of a drive (over 3.5 hours) for it to be worth it. Plitvice Lakes were beautiful, don't get me wrong. But our entire journey was on a bus where the drive played Croatian music the entire time on a tour of English-speaking people. I love music from other countries, and want to be immersed in the culture when I travel, but this was outdated, old-man music that sounded like we were in a Russian celebration rally. And the driver drove SO slow that everyone was passing us on the highway, and I mean EVERYONE. Our guide, Petar was very nice & knowledgeable, but it didn't seem like he wanted to be there. Focused very much on what could go wrong (long lines, bad traffic, waiting). I like that he prepared us for stuff that could go wrong, but he spoke in a monotone voice, never smiled and kept telling us the bad stuff that might happen. He DID save the day by doing the park in reverse so we didn't have to wait an hour, yes an HOUR in line for an average waterfall. So, I can't understate that enough that Petar made the best of the situation that Plitvice is, which is very long lines. Overall, beautiful lakes. Not worth 8-hours of driving. The meal at the end at the local restaurant was delicious. Huge menu and the portions are enormous, so I recommend sharing. This is coming from an American who knows big portions too! I recommend the meats on the split, as they're prepared right on the spot. Waitstaff was fast and very good.
    Excellent day trip from Split
    , Aug 2022
    The tour guide, Petar, did a very good job of navigating the park and making sure we saw everything without having to wait a long time in line. The parks are definitely worth the drive to go see, would recommend packing your own snacks.

    Amazing day out!
    , Jul 2022
    Tour guide was amazing. He sent a WhatsApp on the day with pinned meet up location. Great knowledge about split for the journey. It’s a 3.5 to 4 hour journey one way with one stop half way through. Cannot complement the tour guide enough, Andre was great. Food options at the park can be limited if you have dietary preferences e.g vegetarian/vegan so take a packed lunch. Lunch ques can be long also. Avoid travel in peak season due to heat and cues in the park but would overall HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
    Wonderful sights and excellent guide
    , Jul 2022
    The park is absolutely gorgeous and unique. Nikolina was an amazing tour guide. She gave lots of facts and knew the park well enough so we were able to skip most lines while still seeing it all. Her upbeat attitude and knowledge really added to the park's natural beauty.
    Stunningly Beautiful
    , Jul 2022
    Plitvice Lakes was one of the highlights of our Croatia trip. It is an all-day trip with about a 5 mile hike (mostly flat with very little inclines). Our guide gave us a brief history of the area and surroundings. He also was good about mixing the hike with a tram back down the mountain. There is no shortage of beautiful waterfalls, lakes, trees and streams. This place is so gorgeous it is worth trip. We took so many pictures, and they really only capture a fraction of the beauty. Bus was comfortable and made stops along the way. Definitely recommend.
    Old bus with no working toilet. Excellent guide.
    , Jul 2022
    Bus with no working toilet. Old and not very confortable bus. Excellent guide with lots of info on history and curiosities about Croatia and the region.
    , Jul 2022
    Beautiful lakes and waterfalls, our guide and driver (both Anthony) were great and allowed us to walk around in our own time so it didn't feel rushed. Would love to have spent more time there.
    Great guide and beautiful views
    , Jul 2022
    Toni was great at explaining the history of Split and then leading us around the park and answering our questions. He was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Our driver also drove steadily despite the winds.
    Totally awe inspiring experience
    , Jun 2022

    Fantastic waterfalls and scenery
    , May 2022
    We did the Krka Park the day before and was wondering if this would be as good. It was and it is worth going to both. This is bigger with more of a wooded area. The waterfalls were spectacular and the scenery was magnificent. The boardwalk is not so good as Krka and you have to watch your step. Our guide was helpful especially when he took time with my wife on a steep climb as she has to take rest stops.
    A great daytrip. I was...
    , May 2022
    A great daytrip. I was worried that we’d have too little time in Plitvice but it was just the right amount. Our guide Igor told us about the waterfalls and lakes but also showed us flowers, trees and even som insects that we encountered along the way. He even helped me look up some Croatian poetry (thanks for that by the way!).
    A must do trip
    , May 2022
    This trip was so great. It really exceeded my exceptions by far. The guide Tony was so informative and so supportive.
    Highlight of our time in Split.
    , May 2022
    The views of the (multiple) waterfalls were absolutely breathtaking. The local restaurant, chosen by our driver, was fabulous. Commentary by the driver, Ivan, was both interesting and entertaining. Having the entry ticket included and a small group made it easier for us, knowing nothing about this place, except that both friends and guide books said it was “not to be missed”!

    Beauty all around.
    , May 2022
    Our group of strangers and Andrew our guide and driver made this a wonderful time in one if the most beautiful places in Croatia. The natural beauty is awe inspiring. The natural flow of water and gorgeous teal color water make this a very special place
    Great day getaway from Split!

    Great tour with an equally great guide :) Everything is absolutely worth seeing. Took this tour in late August/early September.
    Plitvice Lakes Tour.
    , Sep 2021
    We had a very nice, energetic guide who encouraged us to complete a long and very beautiful hike. We first rode a small boat across a lake, then walked up a series of drop-dead glorious waterfalls. At the top, we boarded a bus that took us back near where we started. From there we walked down a beautiful sky blue river and saw more waterfalls. At the bottom, we climbed up a sig-sagging trail to our waiting mini-bus. It was a lovely hike, but do not expect a running commentary on the local geology, biology, anthropology, etc.
