Stu "The cities covered were great and so was the tour length. The size of the group (6 plus the guide) was a really good size. We used local guides a couple of times - the woman (Susie) in Split was fabulous. Peter was a really good tour guide and I wouldn't hesitate to travel with him again on a more intrepid tour. However for Croatia it would have been nice to have a Croatian tour guide who knew..."

    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

    Excellent tour that allowed us to begin to experience and appreciate the culture and natural beauty of Croatia. Our tour leader was fantastic and our small group of 7 got along very well.

    The tour was ok but the ages of most of the people on my tour were much older than me (Im in my 30s and the people were in their 60s mostly). This was disappointing as they had said there would most likely be lots of younger people on it. Also, they would... Read more

    I can't say enough great things about this trip. My group was great, you can't beat ferry transport and the itinerary was fantastic. We had a private dinner at a local's house where the food just kept coming. In Hvar we rented a private boat as a group and... Read more
