This is extension trip is a wonderful addition to the Croatia trip and well worth it, The northern part of the country is totally different from the coast and provides a well-rounded experience. Don't miss it.

I encourage everyone to take this extension to complete an introduction to Croatia. The extraordinary beauty of Plitvice Lakes National Park and Croatia's capital, Zagreb should not be missed.

This is an outstanding program, and I highly recommend it! Our program leader, Mirela, is one of the best program leaders I have ever experienced. Mirela's expertise about Croatia's history, her command of the English language, the personal sharing that she did about contemporary life in Croatia, and her sense of humor- well, all these attributes contributed to her excellence as our leader. Though the weather can be unpredictable no matter when you travel, we enjoyed traveling there in mid to late October. Though we encountered a couple of days of rain, we had some beautiful days, and there were fewer tourists. This is a wonderful program.

I've seen a lot of waterfalls. None are like Plitvice Lakes. It is just beautiful.

If you like waterfalls and history the Croatia extension is wonderful. Its a good addition to the coast.

The extension to the Best of Croatia makes this tour a complete package. Zagreb, its capital is the best place to start, learn about the country's complicated history, sense the rhythm of this Eastern European country. The visit to the UNESCO Plitvice National Park with countless waterfalls, lakes and natural beauty was wondrous. For this portion, bringing along a walking stick should make anyone feel right at home.

If you are going on the Best of Croatia: A coastal Voyage be sure to take the extension to enhance your experience in Croatia and to not miss Plitvice Lakes.

Even before the sun sank on my first day in my grandparents' beloved country of Croatia did I finally understand why it was so hard for them to leave: I fell in love with this magnificent land, its people, its culture, its overwhelming beauty and open loving arms immediately. And because of this love, I immersed myself in everything Croatian, discovered my roots, learned much of the language, and I am so very grateful for being able to share this trip with my 91-yr-old Croatian father & 86-yr-old Scot-Irish mother. It brought me and my father together. NOW I know why my father has loved his 'old country' so well. If I could, I'd move there. I STRONGLY urge everybody to travel to this beautiful land, the mezmerizing crystal pure indigo Adriatic, visit with the kind, interesting, happy, strong, gorgeous Croatian people, savor the tastiest dishes, enjoy delicious local wines, and fill your bursting suitcases with treasures! And then book a return trip!

All of us agreed this was a superb extension. Plitvice Nat' Park is truly a Unesco....Site, well worth seeing. I think Zagreb is the most beautiful city I have ever seen..and I have traveled literally "around the world." Loved the people and our guide. Doris Clevenger
