We had a fantastic day with Ernest as a guide. As often, the guide makes the whole difference on these tours, and Ernest was super lively, cultivated and passionate. Some might tire of his Dru-esque accent (Despicable Me), but his anecdotes helped us understand not only the history and facts of Split and Krka area, but of the Croatian way of life as well. The tour was impeccably organized and timed, the bus super comfortable and the waterfalls definitely worth the short drive out.

Very good guide. Gives explanations about the city and the life of the country. Take the meal which is optional it is definitely worth it. It is very good. We have time both to have lunch at the inn and to swim. On the other hand, it is important to respect the timetables for returning to the bus. I highly recommend.

we had a wonderfull time. our guide Marco was exceptional and very entertaining. and also a special thanks to the driver.

Tour was excellent. Our guide Ted is a knowledgeable, funny, spirited guy.

A place worth seeing. A well-organized excursion to Krak National Park.
