Started at a perfect meeting spot. We walked as a group to a minibus. The bus was comfortable. Rode to the national park. Details were given to us about the park and where to meet afterward. The park was so beautiful and relaxing. A boat took us to a cute, small town where we ended the day. There was an optional wine and olive oil tasting, but I did not choose to do that. Had a memorable day and so glad to have done this tour.

Krka is well worth the visit. Beautiful national park. We also visited the town Sibnek which was gorgeous (I would recommend visiting the fortress!) Gabby, our guide was very friendly and gave us great recommendations about what to visit and on both the tour and in Split in general! She is very enthusiastic and clearly loves her job. Overall I would highly recommend this trip

Great experience. Mario was an amazing guide. Waterfalls were stunning and because of Mario organisation we get to avoid the crowds. I was not bold enough to swimm but others did. Olive oil tasting was the perfect ending of the trip.

Very knowledgeable guide (Rudi) who made the trip very enjoyable. Good balance of time spent with the guide and alone. And many thanks to the driver also (G.)!

was such a great day out. the tour guide was fantastic, the scenery was beautiful and the wine tasting tour was well worth it. all in all a great day
