review 22 Sep 2015

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The walks (not strenuous) and visit to local family 'restaurant' (using traditional cooking methods) organised by the tour guide.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

This mixture of activities is a good introduction to (lovely) Croatian coast and (very busy/crowded but quite stunning) Split/Dubrovnik tourism.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Certainly good use was made of local family owned restaurants, group transport use reduces impact, two of the hotels were a little 'bland' but presumably used on cost grounds.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Does what it 'says on the tin'. Good introduction to Croatia, made all the better, in our case, by an excellent 'tour leader'.

review 20 Jul 2015

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Just getting a glimpse of the Croatian coast with its scenery and history

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Take a strong insect repellant if you you are walking in the countryside. Be prepared that each day the guide will say where the group is going to have dinner that night and generall it will be in a tourist venue and in Summer in Croatia that is not cheap. You do not have to go with the group but of course it is more social and easier to do so.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Hope so

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

We enjoyed our holiday and the company of our fellow travellers but will probably not return to Croatia.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Take a sweater and an umbrella!

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

review 14 May 2013

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Walking the walls of Dubrovnik - great views and lots of history.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Expect adequate hotels rather than luxury. Take a travel kettle if you want an early morning cuppa - there was no tea or coffee making facilities in any of the rooms.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Tourism is vital to Croatia as this relatively new country finds its place in the world.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Even better than expected. A lovely area to visit.
