Word of Mouth
We are 6 mature aged people from Australia. We were looking for a private tour seeing some of the countryside of Croatia with a driver/guide. We were not sure what to expect but I can honestly say our 3 days with you Davor were just magical. You were a most professional guide, providing just the right amount of interaction & leaving us to ourselves. Your knowledge of your country was outstanding and we learnt so much from you. Our history buff Derek loved it. You had a great sense of humour & you even laughed at Pauls corny jokes. The itinerary was fantastic, seeing the mountains, small villages & the wonderful Plitvice Lakes. The accommodation was firstclass & what can I say about the food - we are still talking about it. We even have photos to prove how wonderful it all was. My initial contact with you via e-mail was most informative & professional. We would have no hesitation in recommending you Davor & your company to any person wishing to tour with you. Feel free to pass my email address onto anyone who might want to use me for a reference for your company. Thankyou for the opportunity to speak on your behalf, Barbara Hinchliffe
