We have traveled the World and have lived overseas for 15 years (we are US-based), so have had some pretty amazing travel experiences in our lives. This trip rated among the top we have done.
The travel company was exceptional. Initially, we set up an itinerary and then had to modify dates. They did not mind, working with us to make changes. They gave us a good idea of what we were going to do each day, where we were staying, and worked with us to include additional neighboring countries. They called us ahead of our trip and went over details, with vouchers (we had received via email), answering all our questions. The trip itself went VERY smoothly, with no hiccups, passing from one set of local drivers and guides to the next. All hotels were all excellent, unique and memorable. Guides were interesting and knowledgeable. Drivers were very good. Wine tastings were unique and very well done. The Dinner Under the Stars was one of our most amazing dinners on any tour ever. There wasn't any part of the tour that wasn't well organized and enjoyable.
We loved Dinner Under the Stars, the wine tastings, the olive oil tasting, the historical and cultand ural tours. We liked having the drivers who could speak English well and very much enjoyed discussing history and culture with them. We lived in Germany and toured many castles but thought the Castle near the cave at Postojna was one of the most interesting we have ever seen. The wine tastings were just amazing in the Istrian peninsula and on Hvar. We have mentioned Dinner Under the Stars. No-one should miss that - dinner in a centuries old, abandoned village by the family of the home owner. Amazing. The tour agency highly recommended lunch at an old mill by the sea in Montenegro. This is one of the top restaurant locations we have ever experienced for pure beauty. All the hotels were with sea view or lake view and right on the water. All were full service and very comfortable. We will be discussing this trip for years.
We would add another day or two in Kotor, Montenegro. We had time to see the old city but would have enjoyed staying there, dining and walking the walls as they climbed the hills above the sea.
