Waterfall Tour
Becky_V
, Sep 2021
The tour was amazing --- There was only on short "hard" part but the rest was a good walk - our guide was on top of everything kept our group together at a good pace - He offered great suggestions for the balance of our trip and very personable. The waterfalls were beautiful --- there was time for lunch and a bit of shopping at the end. I would bring snacks and water for the bus trip -- but the bus does stop for a bathroom break and you can grab a drink and snack a the service station -- you can buy lunch at the location so no need to pack one

Beautiful place with great guide
Hannah_M

Plitvice lakes were beautiful and Domo our guide did a great job of navigating the group round the park, especially considering the range in abilities to walk. He was full of energy and put a smile on everyone’s face which made the day very enjoyable. The park was very busy and was a long drive from Split, but if you’re prepared for this then it’s a great day out and we would recommend this tour.

Very beautiful park, with amazing colors
Vibeke_Denmark

Very beautiful park, with amazing colors. Definitely worth a visit. Viator offers the trip for EUR 65, but in addition we paid the guide 250 HRK for Park entrance (the Park charge is HRK 180), per person, and self-paid lunch. Lunch is only after 4 pm, on the way back to Split. It would have been preferable with an hour break after the boat trip, so we could have bought lunch there instead. Our guide was experienced (had completed 300 similar tours) but at times did not have the greatest patience.

Well organised and great value

The trip was really well organised and our tour guide Elena was very knowledgeable providing us with interesting facts about Croatia on the journey to and from Plitvice. Whilst at a Plitvice we were able to wander around and take pictures at leisure whilst Elena stopped at key points to share more facts. You do not want to miss this park as the views are incredible and have to be seen to be believed. Great value for money. Highly recommend.

Day trip to Plitvice
Marla_M
, Sep 2021
Great trip to Plitvice Lakes from Split. The driver does all the work while our guide, Elena tells us about the sights we pass and history of the area. Plitvice is an amazing park, well worth the time driving there and back. Elena is an outstanding guide.

Beautiful National Park
SJCuomo
, Sep 2021
The Plitvice Lakes were very beautiful to see, and our tour guide Ilana was wonderful. We had perfect weather and the park was not super busy. We hiked for several hours, but the trails are very easy to walk. The only downside is that the lakes are 3 hours one-way from Split, so it is quite the drive. If you are into hiking and don’t mind the drive, then this is a great tour for you.

Our tour guide Elena was...

Our tour guide Elena was great. Despite a couple unexpected challenges, she was very positive and pleasant. There was a confusion on drop off with me and a few other travelers, she paid her own money to get us a cab to make sure we were taken care of.

Not small group
Kathleen_K
, Sep 2021
The lakes themselves were wonderful albeit crowded and our guide Elena was absolutely a gem. I was very disappointed in Viator when they say the tour is small group and you show up for a bus of 40 people. Not my idea of a small group. Could have payed less for a group tour that didn’t advertise itself as small group.

Lovely trip with lovely guide

Lovely trip with a lovely guide in Ivanka. My only criticism would be to be more informed of the weather conditions and perhaps a text prior to trip to advise on clothing and equipment recommended ie. umbrella/poncho, perhaps some on the bus for hire/but rather than souvenir shop at the venue.
