The trip.me way of travel
Croatia’s glittering coast attracts a range of travelers every year. From the glitz and glamour of Dubrovnik to the backpacker parties of Split to the quiet, quaint coastal villages that punctuate Croatia’s coast, whatever you want from a trip to the Mediterranean you can find in Croatia.
Croatia’s tourism capital is undoubtedly Dubrovnik, which is one of the world’s most beautiful cities and attracts millions of tourists annually. This ancient city has stood, though at times waveringly, for five centuries, and the sense of history as you wander through the cobbled streets isn’t just palpable – it’s impossible to ignore.
Croatia’s actual capital, Zagreb, gets unfairly ignored, dwarfed to the north by Vienna and to the south by the ancient charms of Dubrovnik. Little matter for those on Croatia tours who wish to visit it, since its lack of mass tourism only adds to the appeal. Zagreb is a great center for restaurants, cafes, and nightlife, and several excellent galleries and museums can be found in the city.
Elsewhere inland there is a wealth of national parks to be explored. The most notable of these are the Plitvice Lakes National Park (a UNESCO heritage site) and Paklencia National Park, with its looming mountain-scapes, dramatic lakes, and excellent hiking opportunities.
Of course, most people go on Croatia tours to experience the beautiful islands and coastline, where the traditional Mediterranean life can still be found. The beautiful island of Hvar is another popular tourist destination, popular with trendy professionals and celebrities. Be sure to check out Split if its parties you’re after, or Zadar if you want to avoid the crowds.
Croatia is one of Europe’s unsung heroes in terms of cuisine. On Croatia tours you can’t fail to sample the wealth of fresh meat and seafood. Almost everything is locally sourced and only the finest ingredients are used. Wash that down with a delicious glass of Croatian wine and you may have found your new foodie paradise.
Croatia’s culture goes back centuries and centuries, and you can still find evidence of the ancient Croatian cultures in Diocletian Palace. Today Croatia still revels in its traditional Mediterranean culture, professing to be the last country left that maintains and preserves the languid, relaxed lifestyle inherent in the Mediterranean culture. As you lounge back in a restaurant on Croatia’s coast with some fine wine and delectable cuisine, you’ll be hard-pressed to disagree.
In planning our trip to Bulgaria, communicating with Radoslav was easy. He was polite, prompt, and very informative. He responded to my questions well. We were met at the airport in Sofia but somehow the driver was running late. Finally Radoslav's father came to pick us up and took us to our hotel. Radoslav's girlfriend was waiting for us at the hotel and helped us with the check-in. With the tour service being a family business, it was good to meet those who are running it. Our Bulgaria tour was all inclusive. Food was good and servings were sufficient, more than enough at times. Our hotel was three star so it was what one expected. The rooms were clean but aged. However dinners at the restaurant were excellent. Our local guide Vasil was very informative and helpful. He and our driver (Radoslav's dad) looked after me and my husband well. Radoslav's dad is a careful driver and has a good knowledge of important sites too. The car was in good condition and clean. The program which Radoslav designed for us gave us a very good experience of Bulgaria in the short time we were there. We were able to visit Rila Monastery, Koprivshtitsa, Kazanluk, Plovdiv, and of course, Sofia. We are very happy with our experiences with Radoslav.Read More Read More Less
One of the best trips ever. The rooms were excellent. The coverage of the country was so complete. Great towns and cities we visited with extraordinary beauty. We had the best driver that took us from north to south of Croatia without us lifting a finger. Can't say enough about the country or our package. Thank youRead More Read More Less
We are satisfied with most of the accommodation during our 11 days Croatia-Slovenia trip, but some complaints concerning Two of them. The accommodation over Plitevac lake of Croatia is too remote; it trip takes 20-30 minutes to drive to a restaurant for dinner
Another complaint is Very weak air conditioning in Main Square apartment of Zagreb; causing poor sleeping
Otherwise, the service of Radoslav is good and our driver-guide Kenna is very helpful
The trip was very well organized. We had a competent and pleasant guide Lina and driver Emil. Radoslav was always checking if everything was fine and attentive and flexible with our requests to fine tune details. We were also lucky with the weather, so the trip was a dream come true.Read More Read More Less
