Our guide Daniella was very sweet and funny. She had chosen a very Nice path trough the park, so we Got to see it all! It was a Nice mix between som facts but also just a lot of time walking on your own and enjoying the view.

Great value! Josipa was a great host. She gave us very clear instructions and lots of free time to explore on our own. Less expensive than other options but delivered just as much value. We were back on time. A must see while in Croatia!

The tour peace is great but we didn't felt safe at all in it. When it says a group can be more than 10 people, they mean that the group is 3 times more than that, or at least that was our experience :( (so expect at least 28 people in your tour not wearing masks properly) When we arrive to the check-in, it really felt like we were at the counter of the bus station and certainly it was because later we and other 28 people went straight to a bus (that though private made us feel extremely insecure since a lot of people where not wearing masks and we were seated super close to each other). If Covid safety is not important to you and you treat this tour as just a transfer to the lakes, then is perfectly fine, the lakes are gorgeous and you get enough time in the park to explore a bit around. However if you want to feel safe, this tour is not for you. Sadly the tour guide does nothing to remind people to keep safe distances or to wear masks, everyone in the bus is rather eating or not wearing masks that it makes it pointless, and being packed in a bus or following a group when we didnt know if the people where tested made us feel extremely uncomfortable. The group was so big that we decided to separate ourselves from it in order to keep social distance as well as actually enjoying the time in the park to see and walk around, surprisingly we felt we did more than the other people in the group because we were in our tempo. The tour guide was very lovely, however I felt she was more like a chaperone than a tour guide, very little information provided on our way there with sometimes weird commentaries/jokes (probably because her vocabulary in English was a bit limited). So when we arrived we just decided was better to go by ourselves and meet them at the exit. So overall the experience was good as an affordable way to get a return trip to the Lakes, but the company needs to make sure that covid guidelines are followed, because even if we don't like it, covid is still happening and as a tour provider you need to make sure you follow those guidelines and guaranteed the participants safety. Now all said, if for you wearing masks and safety guidelines are not important, then maybe this tour is great since: - They are punctual - It is very affordable - The bus is very comfortable and new - You get enough time in the park to explore and you are not forced to follow a group of people - You can actually socialise with the group members - They do plenty of toilet stops which is actually important - They get you a discounted price for the Lakes

Very good value for a tour to Plitvice! Josipa was a great tour guide and provided all the explanations one could wish for. Be prepared that the bus ride to Plitvice takes 3 hours, so it’s best to bring some entertainment or a power bank. Or just socialize with your fellow travelers ;-)
