This European travel company is one of the very best and most personal travel agencies we have experienced, and we have extensive experience with custom travel agents over a more than 25 year period. Our itinerary was carefully planned based on our extensive phone and e-mail conversations. This company truly seemed to understand the type of trip we were looking for. Even more impressive, the recommended itinerary seemed to reflect actual, first hand experiences with the places we visited and the hotels in which we stayed. All of the company's selected guides and drivers were of top quality; as were hotels and suggested restaurants. Our itinerary included a number of special activities, truffle hunting, fresco painting, kayaking, sailing, that allowed us to get a more in depth understanding of and experience with Croatia.
In addition, this company provided several thoughtful touches such as the use of a local cell phone and periodic "check-in" calls to ask about the progress of our trip. When we needed to reschedule some of the events due to weather or other issues, the events were quickly rearranged; during an almost 3 week trip, we never missed a planned event.
Too many to list all but among the highlights:
Rovinj and the Istria peninsula for a view of relatively unspoiled village life
Truffle hunting in Istria
Hiking in Plitvice Lakes
Sailing and kayaking around the Pakleni islands near Hvar
Lunch at Lambik restaurant on Hvar island
Oyster tasting at a picnic lunch in Ston
Bike riding in Konavale
Dining and wine tasting throughout the trip
Not much. If I could spare some extra time I would add an extra day or two of sailing / boating around the islands and would visit another large island in addition to Hvar, perhaps Korcula
