The month long trip throughout Croatia and Slovenia exceeded expectations. The itinerary was Zagreb, northern counties, Lake Bled, Ljubljana, Rovinja, Plitvice lakes, Split, Hvar, Dubrovnik and many points in between and around those areas. The terrain is beautiful, the culture tremendous, the people friendly, and the wine and food exceptional. The planning of our itinerary with this agent was half the fun and her suggestions and recommendations proved very sound. We wanted a combination of self guided and private tours. The arrangements with car rentals and cars, guides, and drivers were great. All the guides were extremely knowledgable, friendly, intelligent, and able to answer all our questions. The vehicles and drivers were first class. The wine tours and cultural tours were great and allowed us the freedom to enjoy without worrying about driving. The country is very easy to travel in and encourages tourism well. We were there from The middle of May to the middle of June. This travel agency was first rate and easily gets a 5 star rating. The 2 hours we spent on the phone with our agent ironing out details was time very well spent.
The people are genuinely friendly and not just there to make a buck. We were impressed with the amount and quality of our arts and cultural experience. The talent level, art and architectural beauty, musical enrichment truly surprised. The area has such a volatile and interesting history that getting impressions and analysis from local well educated guides really enriched the trip and helped us understand how and why things are the way they are. We also didn't meet a wine we disliked. The area's beauty is more than we expected and magical in places. We always felt safe and that things were well ordered.
I think we might take in another wine tour or two. I would plan any guided excursions nearer the middle or earlier parts of our stay in a given area so we would be more familiar with the area. This was done in most cases. I would pass on a self driving trip to Montenegro.
