We booked a twelve day trip through Croatia (with a day's drive into Montenegro). It was truly the trip of a lifetime! Andrea did a fabulous job of putting together an itinerary that was action-packed but not too much. It was a perfect mix of exploring and relaxing. She managed all of the legs so they were as hassle-free as possible and everything fit together seamlessly. Our trip launched when we landed in Zagreb and had a very informative personal tour the next day. From there a rental car was delivered to our centrally located and very nice hotel so we could drive to Split-it was a lovely drive along the highway. We stayed in an art deco hotel with a partial ocean view-perfect for taking in the boats in the harbor. The next day, another personal tour of Split and Trogir-just enough to learn about the area and see a quaint and historic seaside village. We jumped onto a catamaran to Hvar-truly one of the jewels of our trip. What a lovely island-so beautiful! We took the ferry back to Split and picked up another car, which we drove along the coastal road to Dubrovnik. From Dubrovnik, and the most picturesque hotel yet (our terrace overlooked the Adriatic-and faced west so perfect sunsets awaited us nightly!), we took the car and drove into Montenegro to Kotor and Budva. The drive around the Bay of Kotor is not to be missed! We were not ready to leave. We did want to change hotels on the last leg of our trip and Andrea answered promptly and ensured her associate in Croatia facilitated the transition with ease. they were completely available for any issue. It was a perfect vacation.
It's difficult to choose! The tours were well worth it-they weren't long and our guides provided us with the context. They were knowledgeable and seemed very engaged. The hotels were exactly what we were looking for-in particular-the Valamar President in Dubrovnik has breathtaking views of the Adriatic-not just from the terraces attached to the rooms, but from the enormous picture windows on the west side of the hotel-two thumbs up!! The Island of Hvar was also unforgettable-we had a junior suite at the Villa Nora and found the room and the staff to be welcoming and wonderful.
Wouldn't change a thing! We would advise anyone taking the trip to be familiar with the air travel quirks: our trip was booked through Croatia airlines with US Airways as the carrier into Amsterdam and out of Frankfurt for travel to and from the US. While all went well, the carriers don't link the flights and you need to check in separately for each. In Frankfurt, US airways does not allow web check in-it must be done at the airport. Not a big issue-but worth knowing if you are an anxious flyer before you go!
