Beautiful day in Plitvice Lakes National Park

The entire day was magnificent. We were jet-lagged but didn’t feel our fatigue while on this tour. Our guide, Luca was very helpful and even gave us a lot of very interesting information while traveling to the park. We learned so much about Croatia and Zagreb as well as the park. It was an amazing experience!

Plitvice was so beautiful. Wear comfortable walking shoes cause you are on hiking trails and boardwalks among the lakes and waterfalls. To be away from the city noises and relax in its serenity was wonderful. Our guide Petra was friendly and happy to engage us with her and extensive knowledge.

Our superb guide (Petra) provided us with a wealth of historical knowledge, not only about the lakes, but an abundance of questions were answered regarding Croatian Culture and Lifestyle. The picturesque views were breathtaking. Well worth the money and highly recommend.

The place is amazing!! It’s a great day didn’t in nature with fantastic views and the blue-green color of the water is incredible! There’s a decent amount of walking sometimes on uneven ground - skip the flip flops. Lunch was a nice location but the food was mediocre at best. You’re not there for the food tho - you’re there for the views and experience. I highly recommend this trip!

Incredible day trip!

Incredible day trip! Petra was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and welcoming, and was a great lead for our group. Mario was an excellent driver. Pick up and drop off went smoothly and on time. I appreciate that it was a small group, as I cannot imagine doing this trip with one of those large tours. Rastoke was a nice stop along the way to stretch our legs, and was very pretty. But what can I say about Pltivice Lakes, other than it was one of the the most magical places I've ever been to. Petra paced us well within the time we had, patiently giving us time for photos but also making sure to move us along when needed. There were a few times when it did feel a bit rushed when I wish I could have stopped and really taken in the nature, fresh air and quiet around us, but that is just me and I understand that we really didn't have all the time in the world and we did cover a lot of ground otherwise. Worth every penny and definitely a highlight of my trip so far.

Absolutely lovely tour. Petra, our guide, was fantastic as was our driver Mario. Petra was very informative, took us at a good pace and made sure we had lots of stops for photos. The tour made our trip to both Rastoke and Plitvice completely stress free. Highly recommend this tour.

A memorable day trip

The entire tour was very memorable. We started dot on time and was a small group of 3 girls. Our guide Petra was amazing from the beginning and she was knowledgeable, lively and enthusiastic. She gave us a brief explanation of the important buildings in Zagreb while we were leaving for Rastoke and explained in details about the significance of the buildings. Her stories and legends are very well appreciated. She took time to describe them and her command on English is super good. Our first break was on Rastoke. She offered us coffee and we chatted as a group in a small cafe with a breath taking view. We reached Plitvice around 12.30 pm and started our hike in trail C. She gave a complete outline of our path and set the expectations well. The 16 lakes, innumerable waterfall and the beautiful walk in the lower lake is what we started off with. At about mid point we had our lunch and a nice boat ride followed. Though everyone was not maintaining COVID protocol of wearing masks, Petra reminded us to follow it strictly. After the boat ride, we started on the upper lakes and had lots of photogenic stops. She explained about each plaque along the way and motivated us throughout the steep path (not very long) - moderate fitness will do. After finishing the trail, we got a very good look of the bigger lake from the top. Took about 100 photos and took a bus to drop us at the entrance. By 5 we start for Zagreb and she spoke about the general culture, what to do, tons of stories about war. We reached right after sunset. Had a fantastic day overall and super happy with the group (made some new friends) and Petra. 5 stars for her efforts.
