Wedding Anniversary Trip to Croatia

Private itinerary

October 2023. Dear Ivana, Lisa and I could not have been more pleased with the Secret Dalmatia tour! Every step was very thoughtfully arranged and executed flawlessly. It was for us a wonderful, fun and very relaxing 15th wedding anniversary trip. We were very pleased with each transfer. All of the drivers were prompt, very nice, and got us where we were going safely, and efficiently. All of the tours were great, but the hike with Mirna at the Plitvice Lakes National Park and the walking tour of Split and Trogir with Natasa really stand out because of their knowledge and passion for what they were showing us. We loved the two lunches with Chef Jolanda and Katija, and very much appreciated eating meals prepared with local fish, meats, wines and produce from their gardens. Chef Jolanda graciously showed us how to cook several of the dishes. We certainly plan to take one of her cooki... >>> read more>>>

Perfect holiday in Slovenia Montenegro and Croatia

July 2023. July 4, 2023 If you are investigating Secret Dalmatia for your vacation plans to Croatia and adjoining countries, you are up for a real treat of a lifetime! Just briefly, our journey into our recent trip this May began some 10 years ago. I contacted an agent who worked for Alan Mandic, the owner of Secret Dalmatia. At that time, it was unclear to us whether the company would be able to do a tour to Montnegro and vacation to include Slovenia. We waited until 2020 and spoke with Mariana, our recent travel agent. Due to uncertainty of the pandemic , we opted to not travel until 2023. When I contacted the agency in July 2022, Mariana recalled us and our preferences for our tour immediately and made us feel very comfortable in discussing our trip details over email as well as offering us availability to reach her via WhatsApp. Mariana is joined by Magdalena, another agent... >>> read more>>>

US, Jamieson family (6 pax)

Perfect stay in Croatia & Montenegro

June 2023. Dear Dubravka, What a trip! I wish I had something to complain about, but I don't! You and your team turned me into a celebrity with my family - they couldn't stop thanking me for putting together such an amazing vacation! Thank you so much for steering your team and taking great care of us. Your planning was spot on; the hotels, the boat, the tours - everything was more perfect than I could imagine. The three standouts of the trip were the villa at Masalina, the dinner at Pelegrini, and the hike with Tee in Hvar. Masalina is an amazing place. The team who took care of us made everything so special. We had breakfast in the villa each morning. I'll send you a photo of what they did for us - even my sleepyhead kids got up early to enjoy! We were ready to be pampered by the time we arrived, showered and dressed from our hike, at Pelegini, and the service team there did not le... >>> read more>>>

Perfect stay in Croatia

October 2022. This is my second full day back in Nashville. I am getting settled back into my real life. High on my list was the composition of an email to thank you for a wonderful trip. This was a very important time for us. As you know, we had planned the trip for May, but very soon after receiving the itinerary, I knew that my wife's protracted illness and death would be too raw in our emotions to attempt this trip at that time. The rawness has now dissipated somewhat, but the trip was a way for us to close the book on a really difficult phase of our lives. It was important that it be done right, and it was. Your planning and execution was extraordinary and made the trip everything it needed to be. Allow me to highlight a few things that made the trip special for us. First, the hotels that you chose were exceptional. They were all very different. Each exuded class and elegance in i... >>> read more>>>

Perfect stay in Croatia & Montenegro

September 2022. Dear Dubravka, Thank you very much. We had a great trip! All of our guides and drivers were excellent. Sometimes I felt like I was back in college listening to a lecture on the history of Croatia. You can sense the love of country by these people. It was very refreshing. Of course, like in the US, there were a lot of comments about the government..or perhaps the lack of government. We heard the saying, "There is no crime in Croatia because all the criminals are in Parliament." Much like in the US. Except we still have a lot of crime on the streets. .We felt very safe everywhere we went. The people were exceptional. All of the restaurants we dined at were great.. We had seafood every night. Breakfast at all the hotels was also very good. We enjoyed all the hotels/resorts we stayed at. Our least favorite was perhaps The Grand Hotel in Rovinj. The long corridors that made you feel like y... >>> read more>>>
