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.
The best thing about Radoslav was his skill at matching his travelers with the right travel guide. Arina was better than we could have imagined: intelligent, hard working, generous, and passionate about Bulgaria.
This traveller just left a 5-star review.
Our trip to Croatia was amazing, the tour guide,Mohamed, and driver, Ahmed was very good he had to negotiate winding hilly and narrow roads. Mohamed was a good guide and kept us all on time to make sure the tour moved smoothly. They helped make it an enjoyable trip. Thanks to the agent, he was easy to deal with and was very accomodating to our request ,and he responded to our queries with regard to planning our trip. I would definitely use Trip.Me again and would recommend him to our friends,as we had a wonderful experience dealing with Radoslav, the tour guide and driver - Thanks.Read More Read More Less
Our experience with Radoslav can be summed up with one word: WOW!!!
We were looking for a trip to tag along before embarking on a river cruise in August. We searched the web but couldn't find that one would fit perfectly until we saw Radoslav on trip.me. We were a little skeptical at first, but thought to give Radoslav a try. We wrote to him and he came up with a customized itinerary that we thought may work timing wise.
The guides on our Romania and Bulgaria were so GOOD. Dan was our Romania guide/driver and very knowledgeable and flexible and Dani was our Bulgaria guide who was very experience and we liken her to a walking encyclopedia.
As a bonus, we even got to meet his wonderful mom and dad (who also is our Bulgarian driver).
Would definitely do another trip with Radolav and recommend him to anyone who wants flexibility and learn about the Balkans.

Excellent service and arrangements provided by Radoslav. I must also mention our guide Danny and driver Emil were exceptionally good. We had a fantastic time and came back with amazing memories and most of them very good.
