What people are saying about Split-Dalmatia County

Meli was fantastic and so was the entire tour from start to finish. My elderly parents and my two young daughters had a fun filled trip. We enjoyed the waterfalls, the trails in the Krka National Park, but also the charming Sibenik town and the crystal clear water. On top of this, our knowledgeable and easy- going guide Mile was fun, patient, and honest. Our day was amazing touring this part of Croatia and it will always be an unforgettable memory. Mariana Silva

This trip was great! Darko was an amazing guide and I thought we had a nice amount of time at each stop. You can choose to take the tour in each place, or you can venture off on your own and meet back at a given time. We mostly explored on our own. Sibenik was charming, Krka is BEAUTIFUL and there was a final stop in Skradin where we had lunch (some of the best and most authentic food we’ve had in Croatia). Trip in total was 8:30am - 7:30pm. Would recommend!!

Everything was very well organized in advance with meeting and transport, the crew was in a good mood and drivers Mario and Thomas drove the medium-sized, air-conditioned buses very safely - despite serpentines I didn't feel sick, Anna-Maria was full of energy and explained and showed us around very much from the area and nature, I found the small refreshment with drinks and pastries great

Super guide, visit at the top! Very warm atmosphere we strongly recommend perfect day to discover the waterfalls and surroundings

The excursion was really fantastic. Darija, our guide for the journey is the best guide of Croatia and absolutely kind :)
