Wonderful day out, amazing clear water. Beautiful place. Vice was wonderful, lovely friendly chap but the initial walk to the bus was quite fast paced and across town, I felt the guide could have been skuggtky more considerate that all were following and am glad we didn't have anyone who was a slow walker with us, difficult enough with 3 kids. Aside from that I couldn't fault the day or our guide.

Magnificent landscapes await you, the excursion is worth it. We have free time in Krka as well as in the town where we stop next. We are not in timed group outing mode, it is appreciable.

Our host Gaby was absolutely amazing and it was a thoroughly enjoyable day.

It was very organised and on time, good recommendation for food

Had a great time, our guide was helpful and entertaining!
