What people are saying about Diocletian's Palace

The trip to Krka was great! The driver drove gently, so I didn't feel bad on the bus. (I have motion sickness) The bus was air conditioned. Beautiful views. The trip lasted 8 hours. Meeting at 8:15 - you don't have to come 15 minutes earlier to catch the meeting. You must have money paid! An adult ticket costs 85 kuna, children enter for free. Expensive food on site, 40 kuna for a beer. Coffee 25 kuna, the rest I don't know because we had our own food. :) On WhatsApp Marta sent us a map and information. After getting off the bus, everyone explores Krka on their own. You have 5 hours to explore alone. However, at the end there is a 20-minute boat ride. Beautiful views so come and get in line. If you buy tastings, you must arrive early at the end of the tour (12:30) and you cannot swim in the lake at the very end. Bring swimwear and water shoes!

This was such a fun time. Christina was great and very knowledgeable on the city’s history and architecture. The food and drinks were also delicious. Overall super well organized and a memorable experience! 10/10

The tour was a great, very authentic experience; she is definitely recommended. But the guide Olga, who is a really wonderful and remarkable person in every respect, was even greater.

The best tour I’ve ever been on. Clear instructions, great value and the kindest tour guide. I felt very safe too which is something you don’t usually say about these tours!!

Wonderful trip. Highly recommend and great for kids too
