Finest Wines of Croatia, Private program

September 2019.

Hello Dubravka,

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 chef... >>> read more>>>

Perfect Honeymoon in Croatia

September 2019.

Hi Dubravka,

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 us... >>> read more>>>

Hi Ivana,
We made it home safe and sound! We had a great trip and I'm already dreaming of a return visit with my husband. I know he would love it there. Thank you for all your help, especially with the last minute changes. The tours and drivers were excellent.
Best regards,
Joan
P.S. When I get over the jet lag, I'll send a few pictures!

Dear Mariana and Emina,
I just spent ten perfect days with nine of my favorite people traveling throughout Croatia. I cannot thank you enough for your flawless coordination. From the transportation, to the excursions, to dining, to the hotels, to our drivers and guides, everything was amazing and beyond hoped for. The National Parks were dreamlike in their beauty. Your attention to detail and connections to private field to table dining filled our souls and bellies with Croatian traditions at the finest. We have all recommended your agency to others who have drooled over our photographs and heard our amazing stories. I have also contacted Alan through LinkedIn commending you both for your expertise and professionalism.
All the Best,
Denise

Dear Ivana:

My friends and I had a wonderful time in Croatia. I can’t begin to tell you how much fun we had. It really was a trip of a lifetime for us.

I have thoroughly enjoyed working with you as we planned this trip together. Every detail was planned and executed to perfection. Not one fumble from the day we arrived at the Dubrovnik airport until the day we departed from the Split airport. The logistical challenge was formidable and yet you and your colleagues pulled it off without a hitch. Our travel group of ten people with various and diverse needs and interests is not an easy task to manage. Every one of us was thoroughly impressed and satisfied with the level and quality of service provided by the Secret Dalmatia Team of professionals.

I hope I don’t forget any of the great people who helped make our trip so memorable but they all know how important th... >>> read more>>>

Hello, Ivana,

Yes, we safely returned to the US and I'm back at work (college campus).

Our Croatian adventure was fantastic!!! We have wonderful memories of the country's natural beauty & charming people we met. We learned much from the city tour guides about the Dalmatian region as well as Croatian history & culture. It bears repeating ... Natasa was outstanding ... so was Tomi (kayak leader). Peter, Lea & Marija were also delightful. Chauffeurs were great, too. The only negative glitch was the hike -- in retrospect, I would have eliminated that activity and spent more time on Korcula's gorgeous beaches.

Hotels: 4 of the 5 were fabulous. Hotel Marul was nice & well located, but not the same quality as the others.

Kudos to YOU! The entire itinerary was very well planned and organized. We certainly appreciate your time and attentiveness. I'm ... >>> read more>>>
