Must do activity while visiting Zagreb. The lakes are picture perfect and beautiful. We visited in the 1st week of November. The Rastoke village is a beautiful, picturesque spot. Our guide, Dino, was nice and provided information on the way about Zagreb and also during the entire tour of the National Park.

Really enjoyed this tour. Our guide Stepjan was fantastic. He was really knowledgeable and patient. He gave us enough time in Rastoke to look around and then on to the lakes. We really got to see a lot without it being too tiring or unmanageable. I had children with me and he never made us feel like we were slowing the tour down and was great with them all day. The lakes were breathtaking and I would definitely recommend this tour. Just for info the shops and cafes in the park only take cards not cash.

Overall a great tour!! Our driver and guide, Marin, was professional and knowledgeable. We felt safe during the long drive, and his guidance through Plitvice Lakes provided for an awesome experience; we went to areas where many tourists didnt seem to go, which was nice. Less crowded and more rustic / more waterfall views. This tour also makes a “pit stop” at Rastoke which makes for a good 20-min walk / leg stretch visiting a quaint and beautiful village that’s filled with natures beauty. It’s almost as if the saying “a fresh breath of air” was named on behalf of Rastoke.
