This review should all be about the guides. Your staff are simply the best I’ve encountered and I work in hospitality. Your guides have so much patience , banter and special abilities of blending with parents and teenagers. Daniel, if you read this, thank you, your funny stories and jokes are still told whenever we gather in the UK. You will not be forgotten.
Robert Lee, Hull
We can’t thank you guys enough for making our 2 week active holiday in Croatia so wonderful. Your patient guides (especially Mario!) were so supportive and helped us to learn the basics of all the activities. Our children really excelled. We could enjoy our day trips more than just chilling, but the accommodation setup is perfect for lazy days aswell. We are so glad we decided to go to Croatia over Greece this year, such a lovely country. If we had to do one week over the other, how preference was Brac Island. We’d grade that week 11/10.
Andrea Gawkins, Huntingdon
The whole family had a BLAST!!! We have 11 year old daughter and our son is 14, both of our kids and my husband and I loved every minute of it!!! River Cetina offers variety of levels, suitable for everyone. We would want to do this again for sure, the only thing is we would come back in July. The guide said that river temperature is much better in summer. We went during the May half term holiday, as part of a family active week.
Carmen Appich, Canterbury
As good as it gets. We are Croatia converts! The nature, the people, the adventures. If you want a family active type holiday in Europe, then try Croatia. Pristine blue waters, great food, and wild river rapids. What a family trip.
Des Simms, Sidbury
Drina, Sara and Russo were fantastic. We particularly enjoyed the speed boat your with Tomo, he was fantastic. Defintely consider extending your stay in Dalmatia, there is lots to do.
Jake Dillinger, South Brent
Activities were great, accommodation was excellent. My kids loved hanging out by the pool. As a parent of two teenagers, I was very relaxed the whole time being with other families and having your caring team there. We had a few teething issues with the WiFi and Aircon, but they got promptly fixed by your staff. But maybe test these things before the season starts. All in All a great Croatia active holiday was had and we would repeat it with you.
Mike Murphy, Ashford
The Adriatic is picture perfect. A vast wonderful blue sea. We had many sublime days relaxing on pristine beaches and snorkelling in calm warm waters. Having a professional company organise everything is so easy and stress free, I have no idea why we hadn’t started doing this three years ago. My boys are 15, 17 and 21 and they all loved it. Canyoning, climbing, cycling, SUP boarding were family favourites. Jump, hike, swim, paddle, splash, laugh, eat, drink, play, chill, repeat. My only problem with the trip, is that we missed the 7.30pm welcome gala meal. I feel we should have been told better about that start time, so we could have found the right flights. Antonella was a great tour leader and we loved Jospia.
Mark Heslin, Hull
This was our first experience of a family adventure holiday and Croatia seemed to be very fitting. Warm weather, gorgeous blue sea, epic canyons, affordable food and friendly locals. Activities were great. River activities were best, but we also loved climbing with Daniel on Brac and the Sup Boarding activity. You cannot miss canyoning and river tubbing, incredible fun. Overall this was a truly memorable vacation. Thank you from the Webber family.
Karen Webber, Bristol
This two week family adventure holiday surpassed expectations. It offered more time and experiences than other similar active holidays abroad. You have a superbly attentive team who all seem to really enjoy what they do. There are no weak moments on this trip. Food during gala meals was traditional and even enjoyed by my fussy 15 and 17 year olds. The cheap beer was appreciated by the dads in the group, and I believe mums loved the fact, that little thinking had to be done. Excellent active vacation in Croatia, many thanks to all of you. Especially Russo and Maria.
Danielle Gower, Leicester
This was a very memorable holiday, possibly our best. Although this is not 5 star accommodation, the apartments are in wonderful locations, very safe, and have all the modern facilities – bu for this families that can afford luxury hotels, please remember this is an adventure Croatia family vacation. The welcomes meals and farewell meals were all in different locations, so we felt like we really getting to see more of Croatia at every twist and turn of the activity holiday. Your staff and guides really go the extra yard, to create an authentic experience. We really appreciated this. Our favourite guide is impossible to say. On the island of Brac we had Russo and Daniel, representing the mainland adventure week (our second week) there was the fabulous Sara and Maria. My boys said the boat trip was their favourite day, but as a family we absolutely loved rafting and SUP boarding. It was nice to connect with my two boys and not to feel like I was cramping their style.
Simon Conlan, Belfast
Wow! The week was fabulous thanks. We had so much fun. Favourite activity: SUP boarding closely followed by the sea kayaking tour close to the mainland. Accommodations for both weeks were very good, comfortable beds. We loved the fact everything was there what we needed; ATM, supermarket, swimming pool and free Wifi. Your local staff were always friendly and they catered to all different food requirements for kids very well. Big thank you to Jelena, Kaver & Bolli; organisation was great, guides were brilliant!
Marie Jeamson, Dublin
I was recommended to try Croatia by my neighbour and was certainly enticed by your facebook pictures. This 14 night family adventure was one of the most memorable times of our family lives. Seriously, it was none stop fun for the whole family and not just my restless 17 & 18 year olds. We met some great people along the way (especially the other families booked on). We laughed & screamed throughout the trip. We loved the thrilling bike descents on Brac island, taking on river rapids and sliding down the canyon hot pools. Thank you so much, this was great from start to finish, its a shame you guys only offer Croatia.
Ryan Bennet, Luton
We had a lovely active holiday with you in Croatia and met some very nice families in our group. Croatia was beautiful and the apartments were very good. We probably enjoyed Brac island more, as the beaches were nearer and nicer. We liked the use of the bikes to navigate around the place quicker. The food was marvellous but the selection of Gin & Whiskey drinks isn’t always great (obviously fine for kids, just a little grumble for adults). Our Tour Manager was brilliant. Russo was always there whenever we needed him, not in your face, but always discreetly in the background. On a number of occasions he provided us with extra advice which greatly contributed to the enjoyment of this water sports holiday in Croatia. Russo did mention he would share his pictures, how will he do this ?
Susan Goode, Banbury
If you have never been to Croatia then this 2 week family adventure holiday is an ideal starting place. We felt that the trip offered great value and should not be missed if coming here! Split was fabulous, the streets bustling with life and a great eye opener for my two girls, who aren’t used to big city life. We travelled in a small group of 18 of various ages, and all the families got on really well. It was a shame our 10 year old didn’t have someone her own age, but i guess that’s the luck of the draw. You did explain that this type of trip attracts more teenagers. Accommodation was brilliant and we loved the swimming pool. The food throughout the holiday was stupendous, truly 5 stars – as was our tour manager ‘Maria’. I cannot recommend this holiday enough. Enjoy.
Redmond Family, Canterbury
Croatia is beautiful and we had a delightful experience doing all the arranged activities and enjoyed meeting like-minded families too. My 17 year old son and I especially enjoyed the sea kayaking and also the canyoning. What was great about this water sports holiday is that you don’t need to take too much kit, as quality equipment is provided within the package price. A top tip would be to bring water shoes, as beaches are mainly pebbles in Croatia. The food included was very good and accommodation fantastic, it really added to the occasion. Of course the main event was meeting your tour Leaders, i had to hold back the tears from all the laughter we had every day and night. No hesitation in recommending this holiday to others. Many thanks to Russo and Marija, our amazing guides.
Amy spencer, Derby
This was our first European vacation as a family and Croatia was the last part of our 5 week journey. As a family, we have always loved the outdoors and participating in sports and regularly trying any new adventures but had yet to combine this with a holiday experience. Our first idea was to do this in France, but after comparing the costs against Croatia, there were significant financial advantages. Our first contact with your company was Jakov, very friendly and responsive on e-mails, which gave us the confidence to book with you. We decided not to tailor make a private tour and to join your 2 week adventure holiday. This was a great decision as we met some wonderful families and my 3 teenagers met a lot of like minded boys and girls. Your instructors were very friendly, lively and entertaining. Jelena, Marija and Jalko really went out of their way for the guests. Podstrana was gorgeous, loved the beach and quick access to the Sea and so close to Omis and Split. During the first week, we would say the canyoning cetina tour and mini raft (optional extra we all booked) were the most loved. On Brac Island, Windsurf and SUP boarding was the most challenging but the one we’ll all remember most. Brac island was the perfect contrast for the second week of stay. Again your hosts and reps there are superb. We loved the private apartment block and swimming pool. We are so happy we tried this two week activity vacation in Croatia with you guys, many thanks.
Rachel Kilby, Dallas
Very enjoyable Time thank you Jakov. We are safely home and watching back our GoPro videos. We won’t forget our time in Croatia and will be telling friends to consider your country and company. Best from the rest of us – Jane, little Mark and sea silly Lilly.
