"My best friend and I absolutely loved this trip. We had no expectations of what this part of the world would be like and were delightfully surprised. This was our second Smartours excursion but certainly not our last, an excellent blend of cultural, natural, and urban elements - incredible beauty, great food, and good company. The hotels were nice, even the government-owned facility in Plitvice Lakes. Our tour guide, Roc, our driver Dijo, the tours, including the optional ones (we took them all), and most of the local guides were quite good, especially with the "whispers" we used, but Dubrovnik was very crowded, even at the beginning of the season. The airlines and connections were better than in India and Nepal. And the price was definitely right! April 13-26,2016"

"Fantastic tour with extremely knowledgeable trip leader. I suggest making the Montenegro tour optional and making the Istrian Peninsula trip option a part of the standard tour."

"An excellent itinerary and tour. The ideal blend of interesting history, architecture and beautiful scenery. Our tour director, Rok, was outstanding. He was very helpful, well organized and enjoyed sharing his vast knowledge of these countries. The optional tours were a great value and very worthwhile, significantly enhancing the experience. I highly recommend this trip."

"We just returned from the Jewels of the Adriatic tour and it was wonderful. This area of the world is very special, historic and so beautiful. The amazing, wonderful, brilliant Rok Kunaver, tour director, was so able to teach us about the history of this places, give us incredible information and share great stories of growing up in the neighborhood. There were a couple of difficult situations which he handled with such great ease and confidence. The hotels were lovely. The air travel, though long on the way home, went smoothly with no disruption and no problems with connections-and we had 4! The food was great and Rok's recommendations for restaurants were top notch and really gave us a sense of the food culture of the area. The optional tours were really well planned and gave you a much more indepth perspective of the country. We felt they were quite a value as well. We had an amazing driver, Tiho, with a very high end and comfortable coach. We really like this tour. It was our first time with SmarTours but we will definitely travel with you again."

"Absolutely fabulous. Escort Rok Rocks! He was smart, funny and very accommodating. A surprise at every turn. With the great vistas, the blending of ancient & 'modern' architectu andof course the history was most interesting. A great value, amazing attractions along with superior lodging. Most people were repeat SmarTour travelers. This is a must see place to visit."

"This Croatia/Slovenia trip offered much travel bliss. The scenaries were great; only that mother nature didn't like us on a couple of days, which we could not do anything about. The guide, Elvis, was wonderful, very informative, kind and caring toward his customer travelers. The drive Draszen (not sure of spelling) was very competent. We enjoyed it very much. However, a couple of "constructive" criticisms are in order to benefit future participants. We (20 of us) felt that the Plitvice National Park leg deserves MORE time. We only had 1/2 day. It certain deserves MORE. SmarTours should consider ensuring that the group arrives at the Park earlier than the current practice of arriving after noontime. Also, should allow more time the next morning. One can argue that as it offers only waterfalls, 1/2 day or so is all that's necessary. Well.... I beg to disagree. I love taking photographs. So, I take some liberty with the time on the trail. So.... more time than what's allotted now is absolutely necessary. It's such a beautiful place; I'm sure more time is justifiable and should be allotted. We were hit with rain, so, more time the next day definitely may give us sunnier times. With respect to the Plitvice Park, the local guide was sub-par. She's not so people-oriented. Don't know if she's too new. She only explained in front of the big map an overall picture, and not so seemed enthusiastic telling much about the park. Also, a couple of our group missed the boat ride. She absolutely didn't show any concern, and made any attempt to help. We got lucky. Somehow the 2 friends re-joined us mysteriously by themselves (taking another boat). Because of her UNfriendless, I suspect she didn't get any tipping from some. Then, the last part of the tour (last sightseeing day) was a full day to Mostar. The place is nice, but it certainly does NOT justify a full day. So, some time should be stolen from Mostar and be given to Plitvice....."

"Thoroughly enjoyable tour with Elvis who was an excellent tour director and Matteo who was a a great bus driver. Croatia and Slovenia are beautiful countries. So much was included in this tour, and the accommodations, meals and local guides were perfect. We saw so much and have wonderful memories. We also learned a lot about the problems that these countries have faced over the years. This is our second trip with Smartours; we look forward to traveling with them again."

"The tour met and exceeded our expectations. The Optional Tours were perfect, the dinners and lunch were exceptional allowing us to experience the traditional food. The hotels were excellent and our tour director Elvis and driver Tony were outstanding. With them at the helm, our group felt like a happy family. Information about each city/town/village was always provided in advance and this made the visit informative and personal allowing us to understand the people, customs and history of each visit. Needless to say, it was a wonderful trip and we would not hesitate to recommend it to others."
