All went well and we left Croatia for Slovenia the day before the border closed. Danny's friends were not so lucky the next day, as their train to Slovenia was stopped and canceled. They had to leave through another country.
Everything for us went perfectly and each of the guides and drivers was exceptional. If I were forced to pick one as the very best, it would be Ivan because of his huge personality (and body). Your recommendations for restaurants were all great and each of the hotels were excellent. Most importantly, we experienced Croatia and all its beauty with minimal effort and stress on our part. As a bonus, our guides and drivers, through their different perspectives, helped us to understand (at least a little) the complexities and tragedies related to the breakup of Yugoslavia.
Our only disappointment was not getting to meet you personally. Perhaps another time.
