The tour is complete and allows you to see both the upper lakes and the upper lakes with a nice walk. I would have preferred to spend a few more minutes in the village of Rastoke which is really quaint and reduce the lunch break by more than an hour that was made on the road to nothing for the return at 3.30).

An exceptional trip from the pick-up point to the return. It was a beautiful clear and warm day. Marko, our guide, was exceptional. He set a gentle pace throughout the park, giving us explanations and points of interest along the way. The restaurant that we stopped at for lunch was beyond expectation. The most delicious mushrooms we have ever tasted and excellent service. Yes! For a truly memorable adventure, book this trip.

Good option to move comfortably and quickly in Plitvice

If you want to get around Plitvice quickly and safely, I highly recommend this tour. The Tour delivers what it promises. Punctuality (at 8 am at the exact location as described in the purchase), comfort and the guide Marcus, good English, experienced and helpful in getting around the park, leading the customer to the most beautiful spots in an organized and planned way. Even during the walk, we found many users inside the park lost among their maps. It's an immensity, several trails, very easy to get lost. Consult the weather forecast. Bring a raincoat and a coat if it's cloudy. Everything inside the park is expensive. Bring water and a snack. There are 7 km of walking, wear comfortable tennis shoes. At the end of the tour, Marcus took us to a very good restaurant, with fair prices.
