This company was the perfect agency to help us plan our three-week trip to Venice, Slovenia, and Croatia. Their agent proposed a trip itinerary for us that considered everything on our wish list and even included additional special tours that we wouldn't have known about or been able to organize by ourselves without her help. She then worked with us for weeks, responding promptly to our emails and tweaking the trip itinerary until we managed to fit everything we wanted to do within our time and budgetary constraints. We definitely benefitted from having our agent's local expertise on her recommendations for restaurants and activities. And everything on our trip went smoothly, and every place we stayed exceeded our expectations (seriously, our agent hooked us up with some of the best rooms in each of the 4-5 star hotels we stayed with). We have so many great memories, and best of all, we did very little work on our end to make it happen. I'd definitely recommend this travel agency, particularly for trips in the Adriatic region.
Our full-day private sailing excursion to Vis and the Pakleni Islands for swimming in the crystal waters and the caves was particularly memorable. Our sailing guide and his wife had snacks and sparkling wine for us, and took us to one of their favorite, more secluded beaches that had a restaurant where my boyfriend met a distant relative from his family's Croatian side--such a small world! Second to that would be the lavender and wine-tasting tour in Hvar. We had the funniest tour guide, tasted remarkable wine from some of the best local winemakers on the island; and ended the afternoon with dinner under the stars in the old village of Malo Grablje with a feast cooked for us by a family who had owned that restaurant for generations. I can still taste the freshly roasted candied nuts and grappa we had there for dessert...mmm delicious. Another highlight--this one from Slovenia--are the Postojna caves, because where else in the world are you going to be able to ride a train through some of the biggest caves with the most impressive geologic formations in the world? And we wouldn't have known about or organized any of this without our agent's help.
If we had to do anything differently, besides having more money to stay longer than we did, we probably would have tried to visit Montenegro after Dubrovnik, again per our agent's recommendation. It would have been nice to work in a trip to another beautiful country, but we opted instead to have a more relaxing last day swimming on our hotel's private beach and working up the stamina to handle the long flight back home.
