We are very inexperienced at international travel, and nervous about striking out on our own- at the same time totally uninterested in touring with a group- spending more time with other tourists and worrying about schedules then just being in the moment.
Our agent really listened to us and put together exactly the trip we dreamed of. We had a phenomenal holiday in Slovenia & Croatia, with an excursion to Montenegro. This is such a beautiful part of the world, both the scenic beauty and the wonderful little towns and villages. Our driver welcomed us at the airport when we arrived in Ljubliana, the capital of Slovenia- and I think the first words out of his mouth after greeting us were- "Relax- from now on leave everything to us- I will take good care of you". And he did, with the help of our guide in Slovenia and Istria, and the rest of our agent's team. Of course this included leaving us on our own when we wished, for quiet time with a glass of wine and the sunset in Rovinj, or wandering thru the streets of the old town in Dubrovnik. We also were able to spend time with our driver and the others- really learning about these brand new countries, their people, their history, their passion and pride for sharing their homes.
We asked for quality lodging- small, boutique style hotels- wow- did our agent deliver!!. We were upgraded to a suite in Ljubliana, having breakfast under the arches in a palace built in the 14th century- with less than a dozen other guests. Our windows in Rovinj opened to the most beautiful harbor view- I think maybe 6 rooms here. Every place we stayed had it's own personality and charm- with real people you could chat with, that where welcoming and happy to have you as a guest.
If you are looking for a memorable experience in this part of the world- stress free, with phenomenal service and attention to detail, you absolutely MUST reach out to this agent. I PROMISE you will thank us for the recommendation.
Opening the windows our first morning in Ljubliana to sounds of the soprano's practicing in the music school next door to our lodgings.
A private visit to an oyster farm in Ston, complete with a boat trip to a small island with raw oysters and a fabulous mussel stew prepared by the fisherman and his daughter.
A special "extra" drive on a tiny winding one lane road high above Dubrovnik- with the vivid yellow of Spanish Broom covering the hillside, and the walled city bisecting the shimmering reflection of the late afternoon sun on the intensely brilliant blue of the Adriatic. You have to be really nice to this driver if you want to see that view!!
More time in Split- and we would try to fit in the Plitvice lakes.
