Gerry and Christine Meijer, Austr.

Secret Dalmatia’s response to our internet query was immediate and personal. Alan asked a few questions to ascertain our interests and within days emailed with an interesting itinerary for us to peruse. He suggested some “secret” places that we had not considered.

From Mostar enjoyed with Michael and on to Split with Florio who was happy to share his family’s war experiences, to Trogir, Sibenik, Zadar and final Zagreb we thoroughly enjoyed the tour planned by Secret Dalmatia. We learned and experienced the culture, history, geography and way of life of the Croatian people. Secret Dalmatia attended to our accommodation reservations in varied old and beautiful hotels, a wonderful way to experience the walled cities. Alan ensured his tour-guiding colleagues were capable, knowledgeable, flexible and always ready to answer our questions. The superb luncheon at the Pelligrini Restaurant in Sibenik, cooked and served by the owner chef, was not to be missed. What fabulous food, wines and personal service! Alan’s walk out to the St John fortress, where there was not another soul in sight and the scenery was breathtaking, was a highlight. Through pouring rain we trudged with Darvo up to the Takoscan Castle close to the Slovenian border; so glad he was not deterred by the weather. His walking tour through the Plitvice Lakes amazed us with the beauty. It was magic. Rada’s happy, informative and friendly walks inside the walled cities of Split, Trogir and Sibenik were fascinating. She was a delight.

If you are looking for an individual tour, without the inaudible tour guide rushing you onto the next spot, then we recommend Secret Dalmatia to you. Our tour was both trouble and incident free. Keep us the good work Alan, and best wishes.
