Discover Slovenia and Croatia

July 2022. Dear Emina and Ivona, A million thanks to you both for helping us create a marvellous trip to Croatia and Slovenia. Your planning was perfection, we loved the history, the beauty, the people and the superb activities. It was wonderful to be in such varied environments as the ocean, the dry interior, then the lush green of Plitvice. We so appreciated your flexibility in letting us do portions on our own. It made it all possible. Your phone call check-in’s were great to receive and it was so reassuring to know we could call you if we needed you. The accommodation you booked was excellent and our favourite Villa Nobile, was truly a gem. The tours, as I am sure you know, were truly top-notch and the guides were superb! Maris and Dino made Dubrovnik and Split with their fascinating histories, come alive for us. Our day with Maro, the 17th generation to shepherd their precious vineyar... >>> read more>>>

Croatia Private Group Tour

June 2022. Hello - both Erin and I are back home safely in New Jersey and Maryland respectively! We honestly cannot thank you enough for such an amazing, one-of-a-kind, personalized trip. We are both so overwhelmed with gratitude for the unbelievable experiences that you provided us. Every guide, chauffer, skipper, chef, winemaker was exceptional in their expertise, experience, and warmth. We felt like we became a part of their family - literally! Although we were both a bit tired after the trip, our first day in Croatia was special as our chauffer picked us up at the airport promptly and whisked us off the Split! The Hotel Park was delightful, with two floors of living space, lovely wine and fruit to greet us each day, and such accommodating staff. We enjoyed the local restaurant Dvor that evening, which was such a treat to be dining on the sea with such exceptional food. The next day, the l... >>> read more>>>

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>>>

Private program

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>>>
