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

There were several highlights, but having a simple coffee in a jazz cafe in Bale, a beautiful medieval hill town, stands out.

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

Take plenty T-shirts, including two long-sleeved ones. When kayaking, the T-shirt will get wet with sea water and you will want to rinse it afterwards. So you need another dry one for the next day. Cycling gloves are important as well.

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

Very much so. We ate local food, drank local wine, and stayed in rooms owned by locals.

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

Very enjoyable.

The recommended 150 a day spending money probably is not enough if you want to take additional trips and like to drink.

Yes I think that it increased tourism in parts that may be would not have it.

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

I enjoyed the vacation very much but was disappointed to see it was on offer on woucher for half the money I paid! ps vacation was the Dubrovnik multi sport.

review 1 Oct 2014

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

Views from the mountains across to the Adriatic coast, walking in the Una River National Park in Bosnia, drinking Turkish coffee made on a small fire in the mountains, swimming in the icy clear green water of a small river and the majestic beauty of the Plitvice Lakes.

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

Make sure you have strong supportive footwear-as advised on booking, a lightweight day sac and lightweight kagoule

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

We spent 3 nights staying in rooms in the homes of local people in a very small village. Breakfast and the evening meal were provided cooked by people from the village in a wooden purpose- built barn in the centre. All guests from the different houses ate there together.

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

The walking tour was extremely well organised and our guide helpful, friendly, experienced and knowledgeable. The vacation was a very good combination of the major attractions of the national parks and interesting off the beaten track walks only possible with local knowledge. Although we covered a vast area walking remained the main part of the day. We were a small friendly group-5 plus our guide, and I never felt over-organised (something I dislike). We were met from different parts of Croatia at the beginning of our tour and taken to our choice of airport/bus station (within reason) at the end making it very easy to add a few days of independent travel to the vacation. Our guide incorporated a visit to a brown bear sanctuary which we had expressed an interest in and substituted a walk through some spectacular caves on a day when the weather meant the planned walk was not a good option. The vacation felt relaxed, friendly and adaptable and was a great way to see beautiful unspoiled areas of Croatia. I would not hesitate to choose this company again.
