1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Getting the chance to see so many different parts of Croatia, it was all beautiful and so different. We wouldn't have known where to start if we'd booked it direct, by ourselves.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

The travel agent spent time understanding what we wanted and then suggested an itinerary which suited us perfectly.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Each hotel was different and individual, the locals were incredible friendly and helpful. It as good to get away from the 'resort' style hotels.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Wonderful, it was incredibly relaxing and everything worked like clockwork, all the ferry trips, transfers to different hotels etc was all seamless, so we could just relax and know that we didn't have to worry about where we going next.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The most memorable part was watching Dolphins in a glassy smooth sea in the early evening sun. This was an excursion from Porec recommended by our hotel in Motovun. Magic.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Not everywhere takes credit cards. Be prepared to use some cash. We used Transferwise cards in ATMs which gave a good exchange rate. Euros are accepted in many places. A good second language to have is German as they are the main visitors!

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Our vacation wasn't particularly eco-friendly, mostly because of what we ourselves had asked for I think. Tourism is now a big thing in Croatia and the local people don't really need more visitors to be honest. While out there, we talked about more ecological traveling and one of the things we are going to try to do in future is use the train to visit Europe rather than fly.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

The vacation was well organised by Andy and Dawn of the tour operator, and their Croatian partner. Rab island and town was a great choice for us and the Ariana Hotel is superb. It was a good compromise between getting to see the country and relaxing. The week went very quickly!

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The sea water was crystal clear and lovely to swim in.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

None really; it's all very familiar vacation wise, don't expect a different culture or anything.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

No idea about that; Croatia is highly geared for tourists, but relatively tastefully executed.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

My vacation was very well planned and meticulously organised, all the links in the chain held firm. It gave me a taste of Croatia and next time I may well stray away from the tourist trail a bit more. I enjoyed it and felt relaxed and welcome.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

The beauty and tranquility of the lakes at Mljet.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

The contrast between the tranquility of Mljet and charm of Korcula with the buzz if Hvar made an excellent itinerary for our first visit. In Hvar the hotel was busy and noisy and we would possibly recommend a self catering apartment instead away from the main square if you're hoping for a restful nights sleep. We cycled around the lakes at Mljet, and it was a good way to see more of the park than we could have covered by foot. If you want to walk around the city walls of Dubrovnik old town its best done in the late afternoon once the cruise ships have departed.Visit Krka Park on a day trip from Trogir, the waterfalls are amazing.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Yes.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Excellent.It was a good way to get to see some of the coastline, islands and old towns of Croatia.

There is something for everyone in this vacation - history and culture, variety and lots of adreneline filled activities for our sons aged 16, 15 and 11.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

Definitely helped support the local economy

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?

Fantastic!
