What people are saying about Zadar County

Waterfalls were quite lovely. It was a nice walk along a board walk with many photo opportunities and points to observe the many smaller waterfalls and fish. The boat ride down the river was also very pleasant, the swim in the river and then the wine tasting. The wine tasting was surprisingly fun and very good wine. We learned quite a bit and bought a bottle of the dessert wine. Overall a great day out and Ante, our driver was very knowledgable and friendly. My adult children also enjoyed the day and we would highly recommend it. Try it!

The tour was really good. It was a good balance of tour, exploration, and wine tasting. Would definitely recommend! I loved walking through the Krka Park and seeing all of the waterfalls and trails. The boat ride to the other side was great had a lot of good views. After seeing the park the family owned winery was amazing.

Very friendly and knowledgeable host and straightforward. All ran to time and well organised. Would definitely recommend - the waterfalls are incredible and the tour drops you off right at the top - all walking is flat or downhill and then boat trip to small town with river beach and coach pickup. Cheers!

Ante made the trip informative and fun! It was a really enjoyable day out and would recommend definitely doing the wine tasting as well, it was delicious! I also went with this agency to kayak and it was faboulus.

Excellent tour, Marco brought comedy and energy to a hot day! Wine tasting and waterfalls are very worth it, and generally it’s a great value day out!
