    Amazing tour of a beautiful part of the world
    Ashleigh_M, Sep 2023
    Dalibor was an amazing guide! He safely drove us through winding mountain roads, while giving us an amazingly detailed history of not only Istria, but Croatia and other surrounding countries. The group had a blast. It's a really beautiful tour of a very unique part of the world. Highly recommend! Small group size too!
    Excellent one day tour of northern Istrian towns
    Kok_N, Aug 2023
    We visited 3 beautiful towns in northern Istria - Porec, Grozjnan and Motovun. Tour was well organised and kept to time (including punctual pick up) Our driver/ guide Dalibor was friendly, knowledgeable and had very good communication skills. We enjoyed ourselves and would recommend this tour !
    Wonders of Histria
    Mihaela_U, Aug 2023
    This was an AMAZING trip!! Besides the wonders of Histria and its unique history we were mesmerized by the natural beauty if this region while Dagomiran entertained us with stories of the places we visited. He is the best of guides!!
    Having a good guide made it a memorable trip
    Kevin_T, Jul 2023
    The guide was very informative and took us to places we couldn’t have been to on our own. We enjoyed the beautiful views across Istria. The guide was very informative & interesting, but also thoughtful by getting the air con going for us at each stop (we took the trip during a heatwave & it was 41 degrees)

    Our first tour of Istria, and what a delight!
    Daniel_M, Jul 2022
    This tour was a great introduction to Istria. Our guide, Dalibor, was very knowledgeable about the history of Istra and the locations we visited. We enjoyed exploring Poreč. The hilltop towns we visited were excellent, very scenic and serene. We enjoyed the truffle tasting in Motovun. Our lunch was fantastic! We had a variety of pastas with cured meats, truffles, and wild boar goulash.
    Response from Host, Jul 2022
    Dear Daniel_M, thank you so much for entrusting us with your first tour of Istria, we are glad that it was a delight for you. We agree with you, that this day trip is an excellent introduction to Istria. Dalibor will be happy to read, and truthfully we believe he is one of the best guides in the region. Visiting Poreč, and both of the hilltop towns (Motovun and Grožnjan) are the highlights of the trip + lunch at a local agrotourism/farm where everything is homemade is a cherry on the top of the cake at this trip. Thank you again for joining us and hope to see you in Istria again. Kind regards, Martin Popit

    Exceptional full day tour.
    ALICE_B, Jul 2022
    We had an excellent local guide, Dalibor who had an extensive knowledge of the history, architecture and customs of the Istrian peninsula. We loved the seaside town of Porec and both of the hilltop towns we visited. Lunch was amazing especially the white truffle pasta, and wines made by the owner. Highly recommended
    Response from Host, Jul 2022

    Fantastic Trip!
    Alan_K, May 2019
    Outstanding tour! Extremely knowledgeable local guide that spoke great English! We were given time at each stop to explore on our own and given choices of what to do during our free time. The lunch provided was incredible! I highly recommend this tour!
    3 Städte mit eigenem Flair
    JensArno_A, Aug 2023
    Stopps in 3 schönen Städten Istriens, jede mit eigenem Flair und Charakter. Guide Dalibor war ein sehr guter, informativer Gastgeber. Die Abholung war pünktlich, der Van sehr bequem und sauber. Ich war sehr zufrieden.
    Empresa muito diferenciada e preocupada em oferecer a melhor experiência para o consumidor
    AlxiaC, Sep 2022
    Meu tour foi cancelado por falta de pessoas! No entanto, a empresa foi excelente: me avisou com antecedência sobre a questão e me ofereceu um tour pelas vinícolas da Ístria com um desconto e o dia foi ótimo! Tivemos um excelente guia que nos levou para 3 vinícolas durante a tarde e nos contou vários fatos interessantes sobre a região. Estávamos em um grupo pequeno e todos eram amigáveis. Foram servidos excelentes vinhos, 3 nas duas primeiras vinícolas (onde também foram servidos antepastos) e 4 na última. Na primeira vinícola fizemos um pequeno tour e vimos o início da temporada de produção dos vinhos. Foi uma tarde muito agradável e eu adorei a preocupação da empresa em entrar em contato comigo e me oferecer esse tour, em vez de simplesmente cancelar o tour em que eu estava antes e "ficar por isso mesmo", que é o que a maior parte das empresas de turismo fazem. Realmente, foi um diferencial.
    Response from Host, Jun 2023
