We decided on travelling to Croatia and Slovenia to celebrate our 1st year anniversary and our travel agent provided us with a well curated 16-day tour. We spent 2.5 days in Slovenia and the rest travelling down the coast of Croatia (Istria, Plitvice and Dalmatia). It was a good mix of everything - historical cities, roman ruins, natural wonders and outdoor activities, regional food & wine and plenty of beach and sunshine. We felt that the itinerary crafted understood what we wanted to do with lots of personal touches, and despite the short 2 weeks we had it did not feel rushed or too strictly scheduled. We had plenty of free and easy time for us to explore on our own. The guides and drivers throughout were wonderful and very knowledgeable about the cities we visited and also took great care of us (e.g. helping us get SIM cards for our phones and even finding a cobbler when my husband's shoe gave way). Our agent was also very helpful in including some out of the way requests into the itinerary including a quick pilgramage to Medjugorje in Bosnia Herzogovina and finding a hidden secluded private restaurant in the sleepy town of Buzet which required some off-road travelling. All our activities were also privately arranged for just the two of us so we didn't have to share with other groups and felt very bespoked - e.g. a wine tasting in the cellar of a private winemaker followed by a dinner in an abandoned village and a visit to an oyster farm with lunch cooked personally by the owner on his private island. We'd like to think we are very well travelled, however a lot of the activities were definitely a first for us and very unique to the region.
Too many to single out. We were quite excited about truffle hunting with dogs in Motovun, loved finding the completely off the beaten track restaurant, Toklarija, in Buzet which required a bit of skillful navigation by our driver, enjoyed the relaxed private wine tour on Hvar Island, and had a completely unique hiking experience around the hundreds of waterfalls and lakes at Plitvice
Nothing. The next time we might bring our whole family.
