What our customers say

  1. Selecting your favourite ice cream is an absolute must

    "Croatia, at this time of year, is just perfect mid Springtime with natural beauty in the countryside and quite monument and heritage sites. As always your chosen guide (Sandra) was knowledgeable and very helpful in all aspects. Natural beauty of Dubrovnik mixed with its rich ever changing history and pride in restoring cultural heritage make it a perfect touring location. Its coastline is not boasted about as it ought to be and the fresh clean and open green spaces are a joy to wonder in at leisure with much easy walking but be sure to remind older visitors about the necessary steps! Selecting your favourite ice cream is an absolute must in Dubrovnik or Tavtat but equally the local seafoods can be very tempting" - Linda Macro
