Great. We had a wonderful time.

Croatian coast walking tours, self guided
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
A well balanced interesting trip with fantastic scenery, history, wonderful people, excellent food and a good mix of countryside and city options. (more)sandra pullen

Perfect...The whole holiday was memorable. The kyaking guides were fantastic, accommodation good, food great and I never felt 'herded' around - it was really relaxing and good fun. (more)Pauline Heslop
Lovely week. The group was great with a real mix of ages and experiences. The pace of the week was just right with some pretty challenging paddles some days and really relaxing ones on others. The attitude was laid back with loose plans flexible to suit the needs of the group. (more)jane chaplin
Great fun....the most exciting parts was staying on Sipan and doing a 22k kayak into a 25 km per hour headwind (more)jane brook
From €715 excluding flights
Kayaking weekend in Croatia
First rate, the islands were idyllic, kayaking superb with the team making you feel so welcome. Top holiday. (more)susan bein
The most memorable part was when the guides took our group to a small local farm for an all inclusive 4 course meal where we had abundant home cooked food and drink, all the meat came from the farm and the wine was also made by the family on the farm. It was fantastic! (more)Anna Halter
The most memorable part was the colour of the water! The sea was so clear, you could see to the bottom quite easily. It was especially impressive when we went cave swimming. (more)James Smith

The most memorable part of the holiday - Sitting on the boat in the sun, under sail, with no noise other than the waves! (more)Sonia Reynolds
Having drinks on the boat one evening with the boat under full sail with the sun setting was the most memorable part of the holiday (more)David Dunhill
The holiday was so much better than I expected...It was all so wonderful, stunning views, fantastic food and great activities but I think the real highlight was seeing the pods of dolphins play near our boat. (more)Debbie Maitland
From €620 - €869 excluding flights
Croatia activity holiday, Dubrovnik region
Brilliant definitely one of the best holidays....All the guides and Ivana were great. It was a good variety of activities which kept all the family happy. We stayed in 3 different locations and I liked the fact that we kayaked to the 3rd location, from Sipan to Loped and our luggage was there when we arrived. (more)Susan Lambert
Excellent...The best thing about the holiday was that it matched the description and quality of the brochure. The sea and coastline, really was beautiful, the food was local, fresh and good and people were helpful and friendly, the activities were generous and considerate of the abilities of the participants.

From €765 - €815 excluding flights
Watersports activity holiday in Croatia
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
All the activities were excellent but we really enjoyed the river rafting through clouds of blue dragon flies and our lunch stop at a beautiful pool with a waterfall (more)Caroline McGregor
From €620 - €710 excluding flights
Croatia sea kayaking holidays
Hiking on the island of Lopud was breathtaking and snorkeling in the crystal clear water was delightful. The guides we had were wonderful, especially Ivana who got us where we needed to be and helped us tremendously when our plans changed. (more)Michelle Blackmon
Kayaking around beautiful such shores in beautiful weather - but also kayaking in strong winds and rain, which was exciting and challenging! On the second day, Amir our instructor showed us a fantastic blue lit cave that could only be reached by jumping out of the kayaks and swimming through a small entrance – lots of fun. (more)Christine Louise Angelou
Excellent holiday. Well organised, great group leader (thanks Filip!), stunning scenery, gorgeous weather, good company. Fun and active. Would recommend it. (more)Heidi Applegate
From €485 excluding flights
Family sea kayaking holiday in Croatia
Wonderful...Swimming in the sea caves, the farmhouse dinner...So many happy meals. The silence of kayaking even in a group. Discovering footpaths leading to beautiful rocky places to swim...Too many good memories to have only one favourite! (more)Alison Acton
It was brilliant. The 3 other families in our group were great fun. The guides were really good and worked very hard to make sure everyone enjoyed themselves. The island of Lopud is idyllic. We will certainly be back! (more)Hannah Whibley
Most memorable? The peaceful islands, the warm, clear waters and the relaxed approach... Absolutely fantastic, I only wish it could have lasted longer. I really could not fault the operator. (more)Kate Holloway

Croatia holiday, activity week
A excellent week - Craig and Xania work extremely hard to give their guests a memorable holiday. (more)Graeme Everard
Excellent, superb, outstanding....the hospitality was outstanding, Vis is absolutely beautiful, and our hosts were wonderful. (more)Nancy Lauby
Totally relaxing yet delightfully active with superb hosts. My wife and I have never experienced any vacation quite like this one. My biggest worry was how long my afternoon nap was going to be. Food was off the chart delicious for every meal. I will recommend this vacation to all my friends. (more)Krist Thodoropoulos
From £800 - £920 excluding flights
Croatia holiday, Dubrovnik and the Dalmation Coast
Excellent trip - would recommend it to others. (more)Ann Williamson
Even better than expected. A lovely area to visit. The most memorable part was walking the walls of Dubrovnik - great views and lots of history. (more)Nick Ward
From £1179 - £1199 including UK flights
Sea kayaking in Croatia
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
Exciting: Kayaking in beautiful crystal clear waters and seeing the islands from a whole different perspective. Memorable: enjoying fantastic home-cooked food every night with a friendly international group. (more)Mandy Hetherton
Most memorable was kayaking around Kolocep Island and visiting the luminous Blue Cave half way around the island, which we could only swim into and out of. (more)Rosie Tanner
From €620 - €790 excluding flights
Multi activity holiday in Croatia
Fantastic! Beautiful country, very peaceful and relaxed but adventurous. Our guides were excellent, informative and relaxed. The whole experience was great. We really enjoyed the activities everyday - rafting, especially - it was beautiful and thrilling! We also enjoyed that we had plenty of downtime during the evening, to relax and soak up the village life. (more)Emma Buckland
Wonderful!...We stayed in a rural hotel and so hope that this provided local jobs in this lovely location, soon to be a conservation area (more)Mary Purton
5 Star. Croatia was wonderful and the tour guides really looked after us.... The best bit? The walk to and climb up Gromavaca (1,675m). I think it is the highest peak I have climbed and the view from the top fantastic. To the west was the Adriatic, with its parched rugged coastline, to the north, south and east back into Croatia with the white limestone mountains and dark green forests. (more)Michael Hasnip
From €620 - €710 excluding flights
Croatia national parks walking holiday
Every day was the most memorable one! If I needed to mention, it would have been a day trip to Bosnia-Herzegovina. A big waterfall in Una River was absolutely worth to see...our lovely and professional guide Zeljka made us feel good. It was a great week! (more)Pirkko Lampinen
very good (more)Alison Culkin
From €620 - €710 excluding flights
Dubrovnik & islands walking holiday, Croatia
The most memorable part was the beauty of Dalmatia... It was fantastic. The guides (my main guide was Irena) were charming, patient, organized, and knowledgeable. (more)Riley Hart
The views of Dubrovnik from the top of Mnt Srj on a perfect day were spectacular...A very professional and supportive company to deal with. The trip notes provided were very accurate and everything went according to plan and more than lived up to our expectations. (more)Joy Field
Very well organised with great attention to detail. Very informative, helpful and friendly guide. Got to parts of Croatia that others wouldn't reach! Thoroughly enjoyable and highly recommended (more)Lynne Arnold
From €620 - €790 excluding flights
Balkan adventure holiday
The train ride from Sarajevo to Mostar was the most memorable part. (more)Kwan Lee
I loved the whole holiday but the people on the holiday were so great that they will remain in my memory for a long time. Sarajevo was perhaps the place I liked best for many reasons. Budva was beautiful. (more)Katie Coates
The most memorable was the Montenegrin coastline (more)Navinder Shergill
From £1458 - £1670 excluding flights
Water multi sport holiday in Croatia
Memorable parts? The river kayaking. Tips? Take water shoes and plenty of sun cream. But also be prepared for some hard work as the kayaking can be very tiring. Local benefits? Not really. Overall rating? It was OK but it would have been a lot better if the group had been made up of at least one or two children of similar age to ours and the guides had a better command of English and a bit more personality. They made no attempt to learn our names or to build any team... (more)Carole Sweeney
From €620 - €710 excluding flights
Walking holiday Croatia
Superb. Well organised with the right balance of structured walks/cultural visits and free time to explore on our own. We cannot speak highly enough of the company and there Croatian guides who made it such a memorable visit. (more)Sue Connolly
Excellent...Take time to explore the parts of Dubrovnik that the tourist masses miss - we loved the sudden quiet down at Pile bay, just metres from the noise and congestion of Pile Gate. (more)Sue McDonald
It was excellent. Tomi picked out great places to stay that were conveniently located, clean and run by great people! (more)Emily Herson
From €700 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
This is the most enjoyable and relaxing family holiday we have had in a while. Croatia is stunningly beautiful. (more)Clare Pallett
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... (more)Amanda Moon
From €2875 excluding flights
Croatia sea kayaking holiday, islands & parks
Brilliant. Our guide Radovan was great - laid back, fun, skilful, knowledgeable and hard working: unlike on UK group kayak trips I've been on, we hardly ever had to portage our own kayaks; he moved them all to and fro at the end of the days (towing, bussing, ferrying them) when we needed to start somewhere new the next day. We hardly ever had to carry our own bags either which was luxurious for this kind of holiday! (more)Nicola Robinson
Besides the great nature, people from Sipan and Miljet are amazing. Specially at the guest house we stayed at Suduradj. (more)Manoela Penna
The most memorable part of the holiday were the local people, in particular the family with whom we stayed on Sipan. (more)Peter Hodgetts
From €790 excluding flights
Dubrovnik villa holidays, Croatia
Memorable parts? The Views from the Villa are stunning! Tips? Not suitable for people who find it difficult to walk up steep hills. The set meal (3 courses with wine) at the Konoba Asterea- Mlini for 85 kuna is extremely good value and well worth the trek up the hill. Local benefits? It definitely benefited local people, as the owner moves out of her home for 4 months of the year in order to repay her mortgage on the Villa. As for the environmental impact, I find it difficult... (more)Daniel Deja
From €110 - €180 per accommodation
Stone house retreat in Croatia
Never before have I been on a holiday where I was made so welcome and my every need was catered for. Shirley and Nigel are wonderful hosts - the exact amount of care and attention but without intruding on my peace and relaxation. (more)June Weston
Most memorable? The Istrian night - a chance to sample some locally produced and prepared food at the neighbours house. We also enjoyed visiting the nearby hilltop towns, especially Groznjan. (more)Dave Horley
My holiday was much much more than I could ever have expected. I was promised a retreat in Croatia and I got a paradise of calm, rest and healing. (more)Freda Newlands
From £900 - £1990 per week
Beach hotel in Croatia
Memorable parts? Ljubo and his father, owners of the accommodation, made our eight day stay a most happy one. They were most welcoming and helpful, providing for our every need. The pansion is clean and the room we stayed in was comfortable with a lovely view out over the bay. Ljubo provided us with great breakfasts with fruit from his own farm. Loviste is a lovely small town of only 200 inhabitants. Tips? We hired a car from Dubrovnik airport, but used it only occasionally,... (more)Caroline Brookes
From €70 - €90 per double room per night
