If you enjoy being outdoors and in water then this is the holiday for you. (more)Emma Brehony
It was simply the best holiday I have ever been on. I used to think the city was the best place in the world. My world was turned upside down. (more)Julie Stolyarchuk
Amazing! The perfect combination of activities and challenges in pristine settings. Our guides, Nikola and Mario are passionate, knowledgeable guys who spoke openly and honestly. I not only enjoyed the activities, but loved learning more about Croatia. (more)maria falgoust

There were so many highlights - Croatia is such a beautiful country, I genuinely loved every stop on our itinerary. (more)Ewan Hunter
Plitvice Lakes National Park which is simply stunning, but Krka Park is also not to be missed. The drive to Hvar Town on the island of Hvar is similarly stunning. Many beautiful old towns. We liked the smaller towns like Stari Grad as well as magnificent Dubrovnik. (more)Randall Hurd

We enjoyed the kayaking because we were able to get away from the throng of tourists and it was an ideal holiday for the 3 active teenagers we had with us but easy enough for the adults. (more)Louise Solomon

An inspiring holiday from the places visited to the better understanding of Croatian history...The most memorable part was learning from our hostess and guides the impact of the Homeland War. The most exciting was the trip to Mljet. (more)William Laubenstein
We loved it. The walking was relaxed and you could really walk as much or as little as you wanted. By the end of our week, when it was getting quite hot in the afternoon we just sat under an olive tree in the garden, ate a picnic, read a book and watched the yachts go by. Lovely (more)Liz Pritchard
From 485 - 630 excluding flights

Brac Island family activity holiday, Croatia
Memorable parts? The people, the food, the island! We felt at home with the staff of the wonderful Illyrian Resort; Ivan, Maira, Maya, Nino, Maida, and the owners, a wonderful couple.

Memorable parts? The laughs we had & the friendship developed with our 2 guides right from the start of our trip! And whilst walking in Bosnia our Croatian guide received an invite from a local man who had lost 3 family members in the war, to share a glass of grappa with him! Very touching! Tips? Book a trip that covers as much of the country as possible, it really is stunning & so diverse, hard to pick a favourite part, so this way you get the best of both worlds! Local benefits? Definitely,... (more)Karen Day

From 620 excluding flights
Plitvice Lakes family holiday in Croatia
Memorable parts? It was a wonderful week and all the activities were exciting and fun. Being able to leave the hotel to go straight on the river for Stand up Paddle boarding in clear 'cold' water was an excellent way to get used to the water. Both Kayaking days were exhilarating working for young and old alike with good options to take the cascades, jump them or walk down.

Sea kayaking in Croatia
The most memorable or exciting part of your holiday? Kayaking from Lopud to Sunj on day three of the holiday, the wind got up a bit and it was exciting riding through the waves. (more)Roddy MacLeod
I loved almost everything! We had booked the sea-kayaking trip and were upgraded to the catamaran sailing trip for 5 of the 7 days, which was fantastic! I enjoyed seeing the different islands while sailing, biking and kayaking, as well as all the meals the guides organised for us at local people's houses. (more)Astryd Letrud

Croatia river kayaking holiday
The highlight was the River Zrmanja kayak tour. Good, great location, you could virtually swim from the hotel. (more)Lois Simes
All of it was memorable! I guess the day we went on the Zrmanja and Krupa Rivers, - it was simply beautiful. Kayaking down rapids and swimming under waterfalls that we would have only got to because we were taken on the day. (more)Tim and Rachel Atkins
From 620 excluding flights
Balkan adventure holiday
The train ride from Sarajevo to Mostar was the most memorable part. (more)Kwan Lee

From 750 excluding flights
Croatia multi activity holiday
The most memorable part of the holiday was Kayaking to Lokrum and spending time in the beautiful walled city and staying in a beautiful guest house. (more)Kate Vernon-Rees
This was an excellent holiday. The balance of activity, culture and free time / relaxation was perfect for us. We have an active 9 year old with good stamina and she loved it, others as young as this might struggle. (more)Deborah Stapleton

From 670 excluding flights
Slovenia and Croatia photography tour
Memorable parts? Our local guide, Luka, was able to take us to places that were not on the usual tourist routes or at times when each place was at its best, as a result we saw much more than we would have done if we had travelled there on our own. Tips? This was tailored to our specific requirements, the tour company were very flexible, changing plans as we went along due to weather conditions, individual requests etc. So I think if you are flexible to try new experiences and change...
