    Our guide was very caring and knowledgeable. He provided a snapshot of the history of Croatia and he gave us clear information on the next day's events and what to expect. Some of the hiking was more difficult than we expected for Level 3 moderate. Transport and accommodation were very good and better than expected. The group gelled well together and we had some excellent meals as a group in the evenings. We saw quite a lot of the beautiful countryside and the people we had contact with were very helpful and friendly. The week passed very quickly. Due to the physical nature of the trip we would recommend it to active people only. We are 70 and 75, so many of our friends would be unable to participate.

    Another excellent walking holiday with Exodus, with a friendly group in lovely surroundings.  The leader Zeljko was an inspiring and enthusiastic guide, and the holiday exceeded my expectations. What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?Can't decide between walking the walls of Dubrovnik or exploring Diocletian's Palace at Split - but the waterfalls at Krka were pretty good too.What did you think of your group leader?A great friend as well as being thoroughly professional in everything he did.  He enabled the group to come together and enjoy ourselves, even with those early starts!  A real champion for Croatia.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?The walking is correctly graded as Moderate, since the actual distances are not that great.  The climbs are on rougher ground than I was expecting, however, but I'm 70 and I managed them all without holding the party back in any way.The final ascent of Bojin Kuk on the last day is NOT Moderate and should be offered only as an option in the Trip Notes  -  as Zeljko very sensibly did.  5 of us out of 12, including me, elected to let the others go on at this point.

    A fantastic trip with stunning scenery, amazing walks, and beautiful towns. Quite full on with the walking times not leaving loads of time to relax, but fabulous nonetheless. A really noce country.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?The first mountain top with amazing views after a hot walk up (it was unusally hot even for June). The waterfalls at Krak NP. The beatiful ilsand of Brac. Dubrovnik and Split were lovely with a really noce ambience.What did you think of your group leader?He couldn't do enough to help, went out of his way to take on board any questions or comments and help everyone, and was fantastic at developing a pace and rhythm of walking and breaks which suited everyone and made sure we could all complete the walks enjoyably.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?Maybe we were a slower thas usual group and maybe the very hot weather was a factor in that, but we had very little timw left for the promised relaxation. The walks are fantastic, but not strolls on open countryside - they are proper mountain walks as the title and trip note walk details suggest!Is there anything else you would like to add?A great trip.

    I found the footpath's in Krk very stoney and rockey which was hard going for me to keep up with the younger members in the group; the cumulative effect of this was on the last day when the lip of my walking boot was making my ankle hurt and I decided not to do the walk; despite this and a previous tummy upset I enjoyed the holiday.What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?The stay in Trogir was inspiring..What did you think of your group leader?Edu is a good and reliable leader with a sound knowledge of plant/flowers and wildlife in Croatia.Do you have any advice for potential travellers?None except the overnight stay in the mountain hut where, if the temperature drops, be prepared to go without a change of clothing for twenty four hours or so.
