Wonderful tour and wonderful guide
, Apr 2022
The trip was lovely and our guide Antonio was really good. Our 7 year old son asked a lot of questions and Antonio answered them all and kept our son entertained. The place was beautiful and a must visit if you are visiting Zagreb.
Great trip

Working with wonderful tour guide, Filip..Also the park was amazing, so glad we booked the trip. Everything was handled with no problems
Gorgeous tour!
, Sep 2019
Plitvice Lakes were absolutely gorgeous! We went on a Monday, and our guide said the park was not nearly as busy as during the weekend. There were still a lot of people, so I would recommend going during the week if possible. There are so many trails, so highly recommend using this tour, to have a guide lead you through the park. I would recommend bringing comfortable shoes and also bringing your own lunch - the park has some food but it's expensive and poor quality. Overall, highly recommend and so glad that I did this tour!

not what i was expecting
, Aug 2019
the tour was good, the guide was great, and everyone was super friendly. however, i was expecting a totally different kind of tour. if you like a slow pace and seeing one or two main attractions, this is for you. personally i felt like i could’ve seen twice as much in the same amount of time as the guided tour. but i understand that everyone has different “hiking” abilities, so i’m not knocking them too much. i just want to emphasize that this is VERY slow paced and if you want to see most or even half of the park, you should take a different tour.
