"I took the June 19 - July 2nd tour this year. We had a wonderful tour director (Elvis). He has a great sense of humor, patience and his encyclopedic knowledge of the history of the area is admirable. He is quite an asset to SmarTours. The local guides were very good, the hotels good. A wonderful tour all around with great travel companions. The American Airlines flight from Prague to Philadelphia was the worst flight I was ever on in my long history of air travel. Nothing worked and the food was terrible."

"Jewels of the Adriatic was just that. The area is beyond belief beautiful and diverse. Our guide Valentina was such an asset to the tour. In addition to keep everything organized and moving, she brought her culture alive. The hotels were lovely and comfortable. The timing of the progress of the tour was perfect. This is my third trip with Smartours....planning another.."

"The huge organization problem appeared on the back way during the overlay from Croatia Airline to American Airline (on 10/23/18): the time break between flights was one hour only.. The Croatian jet has delayed, and the entire group lost their connection to AA. This event has created very nervous situation for tourists, who mostly are not so young people. This case destroyed good mood after the nice, in general, trip."

"This tour was incredible. What a beautiful part of the world. I was most impressed with Lake Bled, Istria Peninsula and Split. The accommodations and meals were very very good. I would have rated this a "5" except on the first day of the trip when we boarded the bus our guide, Rok, informed us that the bathroom on the bus was not to be used unless it was an extreme emergency and would remained locked. One lady did have an emergency and she had to ask Rok 3 times to unlock the bathroom. He kept saying just wait 5 minutes... There are times when you can't wait 5 minutes (me being one of them), I don't know if this is your policy of disabling the bus bathrooms or if it was the bus company. I would like to know. I would never book another tour with SmarTours if this was your policy. I have taken many tours with other companies and have never run into this. Thank you, Susan Ransier"

"Smartours Croatia exceeded my expectations! Thoroughly enjoyed the tour in every respect. Suggestions-more history & detail of past & current culture by tour guide on bus, several optional tours should be part of the package(Lake Bled boat ride & Istria), More dinners in restaurants and NOT in hotels and more time in Split. Please eliminate your min. 10 characters and welcome all comments!!!!"

"Just returned from an amazing, well organized "Adriatic tour". Had a wonderful time. We would highly recommend this tour to everyone. It is a beautiful, scenic part of the world! Elvis Kidric our Tour Director was phenomenal. He is well informed, relatable, attentive to the needs of all group members, caring and humorous. His attention to detail was remarkable. We had an excellent driver too. We look forward to joining many more smarTours to different destinations. My sister will be going to Egypt with smarTours based on our great experience."

"This was a thoroughly enjoyable and educational group tour made so by our tour guide, Roc. His knowledge of the area and the history of the former Yugoslavia was extraordinary. His best skill was keeping the group under control and on time. Hotels and meals were great and the sights were memorable. We highly recommend this tour."

"The magic began after a very long journey to Zagreb airport on July 12, 2018. We were greeted by Elvis! From that very moment until we said goodbye, he made our Croatian experiance nothing short of SPECTACULAR! Thank you yo Smartours and Elvis for the best adventure ever! Xoxo"

"This was my 19th trip with smarTours in 21 years – and it was absolutely wonderful! My first visit to the area (formerly Yugoslavia) was 41 years ago, and the beauty of the countries brought me back 14 years ago with smarTours. Our guide Rok filled our minds with the incredible history of the area – from ancient times to current. Meanwhile, we absorbed the breathtaking scenery in the care of our most capable driver Sludgen, as he navigated the winding roads through and around the mountains. Someone commented that the Dalmation Coast of Croatia was more beautiful than Italy's Amalfi Coast (or our own California coastline, for that matter). Absolutely true, because the Croatian coast is probably longer. There are 1,000 islands that parallel it, and the mountains seem to tumble into the turquoise waters below. All along the drive, from Zadar to Montenegro, communities with red-tiled rooftops dot the bays and inlets. For anyone who loves culture and history, this is the trip for you – but if you just want to absorb absolute beauty, you won't be disappointed!"

"Our recent "Jewels of the Adriatic" trip was one of our best ever. Our tour guide Valentina was to quote an old saying is "AS GOOD AS IT GETS" She is bright, delightful, knowledgeable person who went far beyond the norm to insure every minute of our tour was safe, interesting and a learning treat. We can't say enough....A JOB WELL DONE."
