I completely enjoyed this all-day tour activity. It was only (3) of us, which made it ideal with Vlatka, our Tour Guide, who was absolutely magnificent! She is a wealth of information, very well-versed, passionate, and knowledgeable about the history of her country. The undivided attention we received from Vlatka was superb! The wines were excellent! The freshly baked strukli, a Croatian traditional dish, was delicious! I would definitely recommend this tour and with Vlatka, if possible. Also, it was my first time booking with GetYourGuide, and I must say, the tour company lived up to my expectations. Easy and prompt booking. Reasonable prices. And the immediate response to my inquiries. Thank you!

We had such a wonderful time on our private tour! We booked this tour last minute and it was one of the most enjoyable days on our trip! We enjoyed the castle where Robert personally gave us a tour, and wine tasting in Croatia is just out of this world. Beautiful scenery, the best wine and cheese we’ve had and trying traditional Croatian strudel was amazing. Robert explained everything so well in English and was funny and took so many great photos for us and with us. We could not have asked for a better guide and a better way to end our trip in Croatia. Thank you, Robert!

The overall tour was well organised and informative. Our guide Ned was knowledgeable, took personal interest and made our day truly memorable. Would definitely recommend this tour!
