It was a beautiful tour! We loved the small village called Rastoke, that we visited before Plivice lakes! But after we arrived on our final destination we forgot about everything! The view was breathtaking and we enjoyed the transfer from the one side to the other with the boat!! Also our tour guide Goram was extremely friendly and kind! We definetely recommend you this tour!!! It was sure worth it!! It was magic!! Thank you Goran for this amazing experience!

Goran was a great guide and has a great business model. I was lucky enough to be the only participant. Usually, excursions cancel due to only having one person but not this one. It is winter, there is a new variant, and less tourists. But I really wanted to see Plitvice Lakes. It was a fabulous day and I have Goran to thank for all of it.

Tania was a very nice , kind and knowledgeable guide that made our day a very special one . We really recommend this attraction and what made the difference was Tania as a guide

Wonderful tour thanks to Goran who went out of his way to make the trip as enjoyable and informative as possible, highly recommended!

Great guide! Very knowledgeable. We felt like we were on an adventure with a friend. Highly recommend!
