    Fantastic waterfalls and scenery

    We did the Krka Park the day before and was wondering if this would be as good. It was and it is worth going to both. This is bigger with more of a wooded area. The waterfalls were spectacular and the scenery was magnificent. The boardwalk is not so good as Krka and you have to watch your step. Our guide was helpful especially when he took time with my wife on a steep climb as she has to take rest stops.

    A great daytrip. I was worried that we’d have too little time in Plitvice but it was just the right amount. Our guide Igor told us about the waterfalls and lakes but also showed us flowers, trees and even som insects that we encountered along the way. He even helped me look up some Croatian poetry (thanks for that by the way!).

    The views of the (multiple) waterfalls were absolutely breathtaking. The local restaurant, chosen by our driver, was fabulous. Commentary by the driver, Ivan, was both interesting and entertaining. Having the entry ticket included and a small group made it easier for us, knowing nothing about this place, except that both friends and guide books said it was “not to be missed”!

    Plitvice Lakes Tour.
    Gerald_J
    , Sep 2021
    We had a very nice, energetic guide who encouraged us to complete a long and very beautiful hike. We first rode a small boat across a lake, then walked up a series of drop-dead glorious waterfalls. At the top, we boarded a bus that took us back near where we started. From there we walked down a beautiful sky blue river and saw more waterfalls. At the bottom, we climbed up a sig-sagging trail to our waiting mini-bus. It was a lovely hike, but do not expect a running commentary on the local geology, biology, anthropology, etc.

    Worth the early start!

    We had a wonderful day on this trip. The lakes and waterfalls were stunning. The colour of the water was beautiful- very clear and turquoise blue. It is an early start and a long day but definitely worth it. Toni and Andrei were both very friendly and Toni very knowledgeable. He gave us plenty of time to wander at our leisure and to take photos. We never felt rushed. We started at the top lake and walked down which saved us the uphill walk and also meant we went against the flow that most of the large groups were taking which meant we weren't held up by them. The group size was small as advertised which was great. The restaurant stop at the end was nice and reasonably priced. Great day all round- one of our highlights of our trip.

    A Beautiful Croatian Gem
    Venell_D
    , Sep 2021
    Our tour guide Tony was informative with history and fun facts. Our driver, Andre, safely drove our small group of about 12 people. Plitvice is certainly one of mother nature's gems. Large national forest with what seem to be countless waterfalls, some very grand in volume of water to smaller falls allowing for a closer view. Impressive trails throughout the park lead throughout the park. The trails we took did not require hiking, simply walking, and observing the beauty and serenity of this experience. Viator offers a wonderful experience, at a reasonable price. Tony, our tour guide was gifted with relevant information. The experience was fun and I will cherish it for life!

    Great tour! Having a guide made it so easy to navigate through the park and the restaurant we went to after the park served authentic, country-side Croatian food, exactly what we were looking for.

    Toni and Andrej (hope this spelling is close) were great! I started out getting lost finding the pickup area because its in a forked intersection and the address comes up wrong in google maps if you search it...it is by the actual small bus parking lot though that has a gate. The tour company provided a custom google map but I clicked it late and it was confusing unless you zoom in a lot ...my fault. The ride there is long and it can be a bit hard leaving very early in the morning (necessary because of crowds) but it was scenic and there was a break at a roadway rest stop. If leaving from Split be prepared to be out before cafes and shops open. I did find some of the green market was open though so you can buy fruit... and i think there was a bakery with bad reviews on the riva open. Once at the park it was a very easy process. The tour company purchased tickets, distributed, and had jump the line access. Then you are inside the wonderful park! Toni had us do the recommended paths backwards so we didn't get stuck behind the huge tour groups that are in a single file line. He basically just told us to go at our own pace and keep right or left and followed the group ahead and behind us checking for everyone going the right way. It was very relaxed. We passed other large groups with guides yelling to keep moving and only take 1-2 photos in popular spots which we did not have to deal with. The only awkward downside was squeezing past the large groups on the narrow walkways over the water or waiting for them to pass I didn't find it to be insanely crowded though. The park itself is an easy walk although the rustic narrow boardwalk with no rail is a little questionable but also wonderful. No railings in the way of the view and it is maintained well. This is now my favorite national park I've been to because its so beautiful and comfortable to walk through the main trails (only a small portion of our route was a little uphill and it was like cobblestone). The way back we stopped at a casual outdoor bbq place (grill not sauce in case any Americans are wondering) that was optional to eat at but you could easily just hang out with the group there too or skip if not many people wanted to stay. Very thankful I picked this tour company!

    Our guide was brilliant and helped us to avoid the queues and see the best of everything. He was also just a great guy all round ! Definitely worth paying for a tour rather than going on your own. This place lived up to my expectations and more!
