It was a great tour! Because it is private, we can respond to various occasions according to our tastes, and respond quickly to questions and requests in advance. Sasha, who accompanied me on the day, was a wonderful professional guide and had a lot of interesting experiences unexpectedly in Plitvice. Plitvice is a land park that is much larger than I imagined. It was really nice to arrange this tour.

Nice guided tour

I made a reservation for the night before and the rude time, but thank you for taking care of it immediately. The male guide who was indebted on the day was very gentle and kind. It would have been possible for us alone to change the bus and go to Plitvice Lake, but we would talk about the surrounding areas on the way, talk about how to go around Plitvice, talk about nature, and talk about the War of Independence. There were a lot of things that I wouldn't understand if I couldn't tell you from the local people. Depending on the season, the color of the lake and the location where the waterfall flows will change, and the scenery will change. It was a very nice tour I would like to recommend to various people. Thank you for your valuable time.

I was planning my vacations and I suppose that by luck I came across the image of this place and I said to myself 'I am passing by why not' ... To those who are reading me, the best decision ever made. This little hidden place in Croatia is in the top 10 of my favorite places. It was an incredible day in the company of Tanja from Viatica Travel. Really speechless. It is not only about the place with those colors with that beautiful landscape at every step but the fact that Tanja accompanied us throughout the tour giving information and details of the place and why lie as a professional photographer. Then to regain energy, he took us to a cheese tasting at a local farm, the atmosphere was very familiar, the Novokovic, a very nice couple, treated us excellent, and those cheeses, well, I'm already in my country and I'm having breakfast from that which I tried. I can only conclude that it was one of my best experiences and I totally recommend it. A huge thank you from a cou
