Jawdropping Plitvice Lakes Experience
, Oct 2020
This tour is one for the books! We totally enjoyed the whole experience. The tour guide was good at what he does and he accommodated our questions, provides tips, and even volunteered to take our photos. If you love nature, amazing landscapes and serene and environment then you should visit Plitvice Lakes at least once in your life. You’ll never regret it.
Great place, wonderful guide, terrible description of the expectations
, Oct 2020
The lakes are stunning. Our guide was kind, courteous, interesting and knowledgeable. The tour does NOT pick you up like it says it does. Also, I have no idea why they don't warn you about this. But there is only fast food snacks at the break area at the park, and if you're a vegetarian, they have zero choices. But the whole place is idealic for a picnic. Make sure you bring your own lunch! And shame on this company for not mentioning such a thing. Terrible communication and description of the event. Overall, it was a great day with a great guide.
Awesome lakes, bad guide.
, Sep 2020
The Plitvice Lakes itself is wonderful and everyone who travels to Split or nearby should go and visit. The guide we had though was very rude and very very feminist oriented. Nobody liked her!
A regular visit
, Aug 2020
The trip was just OK. I selected this option because I thought it would be a slighter higher end experience. It was not. We were 19 in a minivan which make economy on an airline feel spacious. The visit was fine but very little insightful commentaries. Basically provided a mean Of transportation
Amazing day out, cannot recommend enough
, Aug 2020
Absolutely loved this day tour, Elena was an amazing guide, Ante was a great driver, and could not fault a thing. There was a great balance of talking and sleeping on the bus, and when we arrived in Plitvice, Elena was clear, organised and sooooo patient with waiting for us to take photos, walking slowly, pointing out things we might have missed, being super informative.... It was a long day but it was totally worth it for what we got to see and do - the lakes are STUNNING. Definitely something I'll never forget. Thank you, Elena and Ante!
Great Guide Great Day Out
, Aug 2020
The day was perfect. We were picked up on time and our guide immediately gave us just the right amount of information about Split and the surrounding area. When we arrived our guide continued to be friendly and informative and I noted that he engaged with everyone in the group. It was a perfect experience only marred by not knowing in advance that swimming was not allowed and I had to carry unnecessary items. Perhaps this could be made clear on the website and before guests disembark from the transport vehicle.
Uncomfortable and Unsafe Trip
, Aug 2020
While the tour guide was extremely friendly and knowledgeable, and the lakes are nice to see, the rides to and from the lakes were extremely uncomfortable. We were picked up in an old, crammed, mini van with no space for our legs and no windows. The bus was so old that the suspensions were poor, and we could feel every bump on the road during this 7 hour drive in total. At some point during our return, the driver decided to turn off the A/C and everyone on the bus was sweating; I was so sick by the time we arrived back in Split. On top of that, unlike what was promised, there were no precautions taken for covid-19, including no social distancing (all the seats were booked in the mini-van), no windows on the bus, and no hand-gel provided on board (luckily we had our own, and were of course wearing masks) to name a few. I feel ripped off as it was really not worth 65 euros per person excluding entrance to the lakes, and felt really unsafe during the journey.
Great tour!

Great tour! Elena was a great tour guide and the tour went according to schedule and was very enjoyable.
Great family experience
, Jul 2020
We left Split in a very nice microbus at 7:15. During the almost 3hr drive the guide give us interesting information about the sights the Criation regions and history. The park is indeed unique and beautiful. I think no pictures compare to the real sights. Due to the Corona situation the number of park visitors dropped to less than 10% from the previous years. It helped us to have an even greater time by not facing any crowds. On the way back we stopped for lunch in a place with delicious food and very honest price. Worth mentioning that masks were weared in our microbus and also in closed spaces. I felt very safe during the trip and also while in Split. I definitely recommend this trip!
Great Company
