Our guide Bojan was very knowledgeable about the history of Croatia. The trip was very well organized and we were picked up from the hotel right on time and dropped off on the way back at the hotel. We learned a lot about the country and really looking forward to going back. Due to the snow melting water level was high and Bojan didn't encourage us to take the path through the waters. We really now have to arrange another trip to walk through the waters.

Lucija was knowledgable and engaging! She explained everything and answered all of my questions, even helped me learn some of the Croatian language sounds. Above and beyond! Highly recommend this to anyone who comes to Zagreb! For only a 2 hour drive away, it is so worth it! Will be coming back to Croatia for sure!

Our tourguide, Lucia, was amazing! The day started out with an easy location to find her. We stopped at a little village about 30 minutes from the lakes to enjoy the town and grab some food. The lakes tour took about 2 hours as the upper lakes are closed this time of year and certain paths were closed due to weather. Lucia gave an excellent overview of the history of Croatia and good recommendations for places to eat.
