We thoroughly enjoyed this tour with Davor! There were 4 teens beside myself in our group, and they really liked talking and listening to Davor explain a little about Croatia and our stops. We were able to see the whole park, had two other small stops. Wonderful tour just being us. Not a long day. Prior to arrival, Davor was always in contact and we were well taken care of! Highly recommend Davor!
