When I started the process of planning our trip to Croatia, Slvoenia and Montenegro, I challenged the President of this travel agency with the fact that all of their reviews had 5 stars. I couldn't believe that any normal person/agency had not made a mistake/accident along the way and had someone reflect that in their review. After going on this tour and using Zicasso, and this travel agency for the first time, I too am giving them a Five Star rating.
Once we got on the plane, my biggest concern was that someone would actually meet us in Zagreb. I had booked the flights and tour in December, and was convinced by our travel agency to travel on September instead of June, July, or August, because the weather would be perfect and the crowds smaller. Right in both cases. We were also convinced to go to Slovenia and Montenegro, while the tour was customized for us.
This tour rates as one of the top three we have ever been on. In terms of organization, tour guides, hotel selection, itinerary and weather, this was handled expertly and without any issues.
Let me say, that I am a real person and have traveled professionally my entire life, while now retired I like having my expectations exceeded and our travel agency did this.
The countries are exceptional, each city has a different history and culture. The people are warm and receptive and want to tell their stories. The guides were experts in the local area, spoke English and added remarkably well to our experience.
In reality, while difficult to say, everything. The guides, the drivers, the hotel selections, the restaurants, the sights selected and even the pricing. Also the weather.
The cities of Rovinj, Hvar and Dubrovnik are exceptional. Split is nice but too crowded and with not enough to do for the amount of time spent there. Ston, whiile small is remarkable for the Oyster Farm, and their stories. Lake Bled and the surrounding areas are great. The fresh fish are good, make sure the waiters know to to fillet for you.
Plitveca Lakes is great, but too crowded. The caves are good, and enhanced by the train ride, if you tend to be cold bring a sweatshirt.

Hard to stay honestly, but nothing. Perhaps stay in Rovinj, and the resort hotel longer.
