WONDERFUL! Loved this trip in every way! It was the perfect combination of nature, villages, & cities! This region abounds in BEAUTY, & history & political ping pongs! Our guide Biba was excellent! As a native Croatian, her passion & knowledge of the region was a delight! The tour was jam packed with so much variety, & yet never did I feel rushed or that there was not enough time. There was a great balance of free time & structured times; time to wander through villages; take wondrous walks along the island coastlines; or join the Croatians in their sacred custom of gossip, & people watching as they partake of expresso at one of the of the endless sidewalk cafes. My initial concern in signing up for this trip was my propensity to sea sickness. Much to my relief, that concern was quickly put to rest as we were told the boat would not be permitted to depart if Bora(wind)was brewing. Thank goodness we only sailed in very calm waters, & always alternative trips by bus when we could not leave. Having been to Italy several times, I had been ignorant about their neighbor Croatia. Much Italian influence evident as we wandered about & I am grateful to have added beautiful Croatia & Slovenia to my travels!
