There are two entrances, and the bus came to pick us up from one entrance and another entrance, so we were able to enjoy Plitvice as much as possible within the time limit. If I were to go by myself, I would have to make a U-turn to go back to the same parking lot and see the same scenery twice, so I'm really glad I took the tour. The guides were very polite and friendly, and I could feel their love for the locals who wanted to boost tourism in Croatia, and I wanted to support them. Many Japanese people are not familiar with Croatia travel compared to Italy or Spain, but I would like to recommend it to people around me. Plitvice is really beautiful and my heart was cleansed.It was the first time I realized that nature can be so beautiful without human interference. Even though I walked for a long time, I didn't feel tired at all because I was always healed. It may be the number one view that you want to see again before you die.

The transfer went well. Even if the driver's conduct leaves something to be desired... Be careful, you have to pay on the spot before boarding the mini bus, the entrance tickets to the park are not optional. The park is beautiful but there are a lot of people it is very touristy. Several courses are proposed and it is easy to do it without a guide (to pay in addition of course if you wish) To cut a little of the crowd it is better to do the long course: The time is more than enough. There are bars and restaurants on site. Be careful, bring good shoes but also a jacket, you need to be very cool.

It was quite a memorable experience, with the lakes turning out to be every bit as beautiful as it looks on the internet. Do dress warmly though - we visited the park during the last week of September and it was already very cold, with temperatures between 5 and 10 degrees. Very informative and helpful tour guide.

The bus was on time there and back. The driver was super nice. We pay the entrances before leaving and we receive our tickets on the spot. Group ticket therefore cheaper. I recommend this activity, the park is beautiful.

The organization of the trip was excellent. Everything perfectly organized. Punctuality, professionalism and friendliness is their strong point. The park is beautiful, I highly recommend going to see it.
