Ivana and her team were all just absolutely wonderful! They were super responsive and attentive to us during the duration of the trip. For example, we were so taken by the beauties of the Adriatic and asked Ivana to schedule a sailing tour for us at the last minute -- and she did it! The sailing tour was one of our highlights. We were grateful that Ivana took all our input in from the beginning and designed a special tour to our interests and preferences. A key piece of advice we received was to focus our trip along the south and the coast for the time we had, and we are so grateful we did that as it allowed us to truly enjoy this part of the country.
Ivana took the time to come and meet us in Split which was a pleasant surprise and personal touch. We truly enjoyed our stay in Split. The staff and service at the hotel were simply superb. It was also a treat being so close to the center of Diocletian's palace and walking distance to the waterfront.
Ivana was also very good about ensuring that we were aware of COVID-19 testing and guidelines, especially since we crossed the border to Bosnia-Hercegovina. And, even though we had travelled with our own COVID-19 testing kits to return to the US, she was ready to facilitate our COVID tests while still in the country.
We absolutely LOVED the loved our experience at Truffle Hunting Dalmatia. We did not know what to expect as far as truffle hunting but Ivana and her father made this an absolute memorable part of our trip to Croatia. Starting from the beginning, Ivana was flexible with timing and made accommodations to our tour so our oldest daughter could return to the hotel for a virtual conference.
Ivana is so personable, engaging, and friendly that we not only enjoyed truffle hunting with the beautifully trained dogs but also enjoyed listening and learning from Ivana and her life story. She is a gem in the narrative of our story -- and on top of that, she made the most AMAZING meal with truffles right there in the middle of the forest. This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip.
We also truly enjoyed the Hvar tour -- our guide was simply terrific -- knowledgeable and very personable. Highly recommend taking his Hvar tour. We were also grateful to have such a well-informed driver, as well -- he was also extremely knowledgeable and dependable.
The trip exceeded our expectations. Zicasso and the local team did an absolute 5-star job in making this one of our most enjoyable trips. Thank you!
Really hard to think of this because the trip was really 5-star in all respects. Looking back, we're not sure the Trogir tour - although charming and nice - was totally worth it. We drove through a lot of traffic to get to Trogir to only have a quick tour and lunch and then drove through that same traffic again back to Split to change clothes and then go through the same traffic again to go to the truffle hunting. Our driver mentioned that if we had simply taken our clothes for truffle hunting we could have avoided this roundabout way in traffic.
Also, had we known a bit more detail about our kayaking tour, we would have been more prepared. For example, we didn't know if we should bring towels or not. On the other hand, they had waterproof bags there, so we could have brought food, phones, etc.
