Keep on walking
, Oct 2021
Thoroughly enjoyed the scenic walk. Underestimated the duration and amount of walk involved. Contacted our rep and was picjed up from station 2. Tips: Take contact number of your travel rep. Don't stop. Keep on walking. Toddlers and young kids will need help near the end. Will need extra support. Also, in October will need extra layer as it felt chilly in the morning.
The trip was very smooth,...

The trip was very smooth, back and forth. They pick us up as agreed in old town Zadar (also sent us a lot of reminders before about our preferences) and are there at the exit waiting for us on the agreed time. No need for a guide at the park, follow the path you choose and it feels like a fairy tale surrounded by emerald lakes and falls all around you. It's a good hike, and you will get wet. Raincoat or boots are recommended, sneakers may not be enough.

The driver was very friendly, even let us stay longer in the parc because we arrived late due to traffic
Beautiful place to visit....

Beautiful place to visit. The tour says no guide, but there was a private guide joining the group. It was up to you if you took the walk with the guide ( without extra charges ) or walk around by yourself. Really great experience!!
Great day at plitvice lakes
, Sep 2021
Had a great day at plitvice lakes - beautiful place and a great day out. Multiple different routes to take which is good. We took route C as this was recommend to us. It took us around 4-5 hours to walk around and had absolutely stunning views. We booked this as a no group / guide tour but somehow ended up with both😂 (although I must say you could leave the group if you wanted to but it was nice to have the guidance as it’s such a big place). Entrance tickets were an extra 200 kuna each on top of this which we found reasonable overall for a full day out with transfer. The only thing we found that we weren’t fans of is that even at the end of September when it’s a quieter time it is still very busy & hard to walk at pace particularly around the big waterfall but this is inevitable really with it being such a big point of interest. The upper lake trails were much better and quieter which we enjoyed more. One recommendation would be to check the weather at plitvice lakes before travelling as the weather differed dramatically on our day and we had to buy hoodies from the gift shop. Travelled less that 2 hours from Zadar where it was 25 degrees to the lakes where it was 9 degrees and raining. Overall had a great day and would recommend to anyone!
Once in a lifetime experience

I recommend this trip if you want to feel free to move around the park without any hustle waiting for other people you do not know.

Everything was well organize. I would totally recommend this service. The bus was comfortable and the driver gave us information about the park and routes.
A great place to visit with ELEGANCE TOUR
, Jul 2021
The most beautiful national park that I have ever visited, absolutely amazing. Really a great tour. The driver LEO was very kind and helpful. He explain to us how to do the journey very clearly so we can get back on time for the pick up. A great guy. Also the tour operator DANNY was also very kind and helpful. A very good tour, I really recommended to take ELEGANCE TOUR. Definitely worth the trip.
