We’ve travelled a lot and think overall, that this is possibly the best holiday we’ve ever had. You may recall that the Croatia experience that your company organised for us was after a conference that we had in Rome. It worked out perfectly. The time of year was fantastic – before the really crazy busy time in Croatia. The weather was amazing every day. The boat was beautiful and our lower cabin was really good. We checked out the upper ones and we think that ours was more roomy and better laid out. The small crew were very professional, friendly and helpful. We had a great bunch of fellow travellers. Food and wine was excellent and of course plentiful, and there was a lovely balance of relaxing time on board, and activities on shore. It was perfect after the busy time we’d had at the conference in Rome.The arrangements with our rental car worked well. At pick up in Split the agent was very helpful in getting the GPS set to find our village. And at the other end in Zagreb the agent could not have been more helpful, dropping us to our hotel in the inner city after we dropped the car back.The land tour was equally fantastic. Much busier than on the boat, but just perfect. Our bus driver was also the guide and was such a great guy. He was interesting to listen to, and drove that big bus round those little windy coastal roads with such consideration to all the passengers. Again a nice mix of fellow travellers. There was a bit of physical exertion required some days which was great to balance the amazing wine and food. A few of the American guests on the trip were not prepared for this, but Zoran the guide kept the group going and gave options for those who could not keep up. I thought this was good as we’ve been on other trips where the group have had to fall back to the lowest common denominator when it comes to fitness… and this can be frustrating for everyone else. Croatia is stunning and I would go back in a heartbeat, and would use the Katarina line again. I can’t recommend them highly enough, from start to finish. The internal flights you booked were also good – Croatia airlines in particular were great, and even better that they are part of Star Alliance.
