    It was quite an expensive trip and not many inclusions. Lots of free time and few meals provided. Some things on the itinerary were not available for us due to closures etc. I did feel that a few more inclusions would have been good for the money.

    The trip was set up to make us pay for all kinds of "extras," like meals and transport. Especially annoying was that I paid for a single supplement, but at our last hotel, I was told I had to share a room, and had to make separate arrangements for a... Read more

    Intrepid Travel commented on this review
    Hi Joseph, thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We're sorry to hear that you were annoyed at having to pay extra for the final two nights of the trip. This is common of all of our Explore Croatia departures as the final property is very busy and often sold out of single rooms, and it is clearly stated on our website that the single supplement does not include these final two nights. Nevertheless, we are very sorry for any disappointment or stress this caused you. Please feel free to email if you would like to discuss further or share any additional feedback. Kind regards, Intrepid
