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>>>
Discover CroatiaOctober 2019.
Thanks, Ivana. I want to say that we had a fabulous trip. Firstly, all the drivers and tour guides were amazing. They all have the highest respect for you and seem to be honored to be working with you. The history of the country and regions is amazing. It was almost too much to take in in a short period of time. I might recommend that you furnish your clients with a short book about the separate regions and history in advance. I didn't have time on my own to research before the trip but could have read on the plane. The private lunches were incredible not just with respect to the food but the company. They add so much to the experience as you probably know. The hotels were all excellent. The only glitch we had was at the Hotel Bastion where they put our room right next to the elevator. But after I said the next morning that I didnt sleep well because of it, they changed our room to th... >>> read more>>>
Discover Slovenia and Croatia, Private programOctober 2019.
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
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

Discover CroatiaSeptember 2019.
So here are some specifics on my trip:
I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Croatia and hope to return again next year.
Loved the seaside villages and medieval mountaintop villages: Rovinj was delightful, Motovun and Groznjan very special. I could have skipped Pula, there wasn't enough there to capture my attention.
The truffle hunt was a treat, Visnja made it a very complete experience: historical background, hunting with the dogs, delicious food prepared with the truffle we found.
Dinner at Puntulina was a slight disappointment, I thought they were a victim of their own success. Ivan, my driver, suggested Konoba Jure, he knows Jure, who spoiled me with several very nice dishes, very fresh and a friendly atmosphere. I was happy.
Rossana was very pleasant and informative, she's eager to please.
Monte Mulini was a great choice: extremely com... >>> read more>>>
Finest Wines of CroatiaSeptember 2019.
We arrived back home safely, rather tired, but full of wonderful memories of our trip to Croatia that you so skillfully arranged for us. From the first day of hunting and eating truffles to the last day of a delicious lunch with Katja in the arboretum, we successfully ate our way thru your country.
It seemed each day the experience was better than the day before, some of our favorites—exploring an olive grove with a 2000 year old tree (an excellent idea to add this to our trip), lunch with the Diva of Trogir, our private boat trip to Korcula, learning about oyster production and then eating incredibly fresh mussels and oysters, and exploring the old towns of Split and Dubrovnik. Actually the entire trip was our favorite.
As we talked about our time in Croatia we decided that the best part of our trip was the guides, drivers and very talented c... >>> read more>>>
Perfect Honeymoon in CroatiaSeptember 2019.
Dan and I loved our trip to Croatia. We were hesitant to go with a travel agency at first. We initially wanted to plan everything on our own, but I quickly found out how overwhelming of a task that would be.
I found Secret Dalmatia on a travel blog and was impressed with what I saw. When I contacted the company, Dubravka replied. She did an amazing job planning our trip. We traveled to Dubrovnik, Brac, and Split. We also had a day Island hoping - stopping in other popular spots like Hvar. Dubravka was flexible with our budget and thorough in understanding what we wanted to experience. She did a great job suggesting things that I would have never thought of doing - like a wine tour - and provided us with a list restaurants and places to see in each city we visited. I was impressed with her organization and interest in how we were doing. She checked in with ... >>> read more>>>
