Family Adventure in Croatia

June 2021. Hi Alan, Marija, and Honoria, Thank you for a wonderful trip!! I have really enjoyed the guides, and as a big foodie and wine drinker, I really appreciate the restaurants they have taken us to. It's a pleasure to be able to engage with local owners and see the pride they put into their products. I have brought back over 12 bottles of Croatian wine! I really feel I have unfinished business in Croatia!! Two weeks are not enough. I will try to come back by the end of the year. As a foodie and wine drinker, is there a time that is fun and festive to come back? Thank you!! Elizabeth ... >>> read more>>>

October 2019. Honorina, Thank you so much for the incredible trip you planned for our group. We had such an amazing time with so many original experiences. Your organizational skills and oversight were evident and I appreciate you checking in throughout the week. The hotels were all convenient and allowed us to easily explore on our own. We especially loved the Hotel Judita Palace. The rooms were beautiful but the staff were what made it extra special. They were kind and very helpful when Laura lost her luggage, remembered our breakfast orders, and had a wonderful sense of humor. We felt well taken care of. The food and wine we had all week was incredible! The pairing at Paradox was fabulous. It was such a wonderful introduction to Croatia and the staff were very kind. Our dinner at the abandoned village was so delicious. I will never forget the roasted lamb and veal dish. Such a original exp... >>> read more>>>

Family Trip to Croatia

October 2019.

After three years of attempting to plan our trip to Croatia with two other, highly recommended U.S. based agencies, we found Secret Dalmatia. 
Alan sold us a Peka dome which then turned into the trip of a lifetime for our family.  We entrusted Alan, Mariana and their colleagues with our trip.  Best decision ever.  They went beyond our wildest expectations.
We spent five years planning this trip, two of those years involved Secret Dalmatia.  A lifetime of dreaming, five years of planning  and twenty six days in country became a reality. 
We met people who became family.  We enjoyed foods that have become part of our everyday life.  We walked along the path that our ancestors walked and touched the house that was their home.  We learned the richness and the bounty that is Croatia.  We learned the hardiness and the ... >>> read more>>>

Ronald and Leslie Yoo, USA

Discover Slovenia and Croatia, Private program

October 2019.

Dear Ivana,
Ron and I so thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Dalmatian Coast. Your agency
put together such a personal tour with informative, delightful guides as well as
skilled drivers.We learned so much about the history of these countries and
their difficult years of war and of occupation by other nations. The beauty of
this area was difficult to take in as well as well as thw friendliness of the people
we met.
As I told you Luka, Natasha, Dom and Mario were wonderful. To have had dinner
at Tatjana’s home with her family was so special, and then Mario’s wine tour of Peljesac
and lunch at his home just made this all so personal.
Thank you and everyone else at Secret Dalmatia who worked at putting our trip
together.
Fondly,
Leslie & Ron

Mariana,

Here’s our feedback - sorry for the delay. If you’d like us to post on travel websites, please let us know which ones.

Experience of a Life Time

With the support of Secret Dalmatia and Mariana, our travel designer, we had the experience (not just trip or vacation) of a life time in Croatia. The main purpose of our trip was to find Kathy’s family home in Komiža on the island of Vis - but it turned out to be so much more!

Throughout the planning process for our 18 day trip, Mariana provided excellent suggestions and was very responsive to all our requests. The information provided before the trip was detailed, accurate, complete and extremely useful. We particularly enjoyed the Secret Dalmatia exclusive activities (truffle hunting, cooking class, day with a wine maker) that allowed us to see the country in an intimate way and meet wonderfu... >>> read more>>>
