Excellent trip. We really enjoyed our day. The stops gave us just the right amount of free time to explore, and the lunch was really good. The food was perfect and the location excellent. Our driver and guide ‘Dave’ was first class.... really made the trip perfect with his knowledge and his humour. Thank you.

I was with a lovely couple from England and the tour was just perfect. Our guide Davoren was very knowledgable about the history of Istria and kept us informed about even the smallest details. Also, he was flexible with time. He gave us more free time if we wanted and recommended someplace to check out on our own. Also, the lunch included was superb as well. Loved the home-cooked meal paired with wines. The perfect itinerary and perfect guide.Hope you don't miss out on the chance to enjoy Istria.
