We had the most amazing day! Dennis was an excellent guide and driver and all around good sort who told us many interesting facts and stories. Of the places we visited today, we thought Groznjan was the best. Groznjan is such a charming little town and the lunch spot chosen by Dennis was superb. We had a great time getting to know the other travellers on the tour and exploring Istria with Dennis.

Nice comfortable vehicle. Very clean. Excellent communication skills from the guide. Very efficient guide as well. He knew how to help and gave excellent information. The trip was excellent and memorable.

Gordana was a great tour guide. We enjoyed the tour very much. She was the greatest storyteller! I would recommend asking if she is available when booking, you will not be disappointed!

Denis, the tour guide was absolutely fantastic. The agency were remiss in letting the driver know that we needed to be picked up.

Beautiful excursion in the istrian entrotterra with great guide Denis and spectacular scenery of stunning nature!
