We had an AMAZING trip not to mention the weather cooperated with us it had been raining the days leading up to our tour. Mario and Maja were amazing and very friendly and Maja was a WEALTH OF KNOWLEDGE!!!! We almost had a private tour as we only had 2 other people on our tour. Plitvice Lakes was almost empty also with maybe 20 tourists all together that we saw while we were there including the 6 of us (4 tourists and 2 guides). Crazy!!!! Granted it was off season and the grounds were not green and lush but it wasn't short being gorgeous. The lakes and falls just kept getting more and more gorgeous at every turn. We were so lucky as we had front row at every site. Could not have asked for a more perfect day!!!!
Plitvice Lakes are a must see when in Croatia, and this is a brilliant and efficient way to get from Split to Zagreb Andrei our guide was great and kindly chaperoned us right to the door of the hotel in Zagreb, such a great way to transfer between cities with luggage! It felt like we really got to see a good deal of the lakes even though it felt a tad rushed at times (I would suggest slowing down slightly and allotting some time for eating lunch/ stopping to just soak up the atmosphere in the park) - I'd still highly recommend this tour and think there's no better way to transfer.
Fortunately, due to Covid, the lakes are quiet to visit this year. Petar, our guide, was very informative of the area on the drive to the lakes from Split and provided us with lots of information whilst at the lakes. He made time to chat to everyone to and helped with taking photos. It was a long day, but it is an area of natural beauty and was worth the trip.
Our tour guide was Elena and she was funny, lovely and very knowledgeable! Also, she faced a series of misfortunes that day (logistically and Plivitce related due to some heavy rains prior to the day of our visit) and she did not only handled everything amazingly but she was also very honest and kept us informed about what was going on. Totally recommend!
Fantastic trip! My driver was prompt, friendly, and knowledgeable. Plus, I appreciated all the offers to be my camera man. The convenience of a private drive to Rastoke, Plitvice, and then ending in Split from Zagreb was great. Highly recommend. I would even consider skipping Rastoke and the boat ride to check out the upper lakes also.
