We had a fantastic day out. The tour was well organised and allowed us to spend the day relaxing. The National Park is a must see and was even better in the Autumn time with the change of season showing in the trees and the low season meant it was nice and quiet! Ivanna, our tour guide, was very knowledgable and always available for any questions we had. She also offered local recommendations for food which we really appreciated. All in all a fantastic tour and I would definitely recommend!

Our guide Katya is friendly and knowledgeable about The Game of Thrones and its characters. She shows us the sites where certain scenes were filmed, proofed with related pictures in her hand. She saved the best for last - The Walk of Shame,and more... but I'm not gonna spoil it. So book her and find out!

A nice experience - at least in the off-season. It was a wonderful tour, during which you learned a lot, which was due to the dedicated guide Ines, who talked about her home country with a lot of humor and heart. Everything went very reliably.

Ljubo was an excellent guide - knowledgable, engaging and kept to the time. Overall an amazing experience, would definitely recommend!

Fantastic experience. Beautiful natural wonder. Guide was informative and very hospitable.
