The pace and distance was just right for our group. Sandra was a brilliant guide - patient but kept the pace so we were not late and the route was fantastic as we ended with a grand finale view in the lower falls!

Great day in the nature. Ivan was the best guide we ever had. He came in front of our cruise shipon time in a brand new Mercedes and organised everything perfectly. Thank you for a great day.

National Park was great and the tour was organised perfectly. Ivanpicked us up in a new Mercedes and gave us as much time as we wanted. We even saw Sibenik on the way.
