September 2019.

Dear Ivana:

My friends and I had a wonderful time in Croatia. I can’t begin to tell you how much fun we had. It really was a trip of a lifetime for us.

I have thoroughly enjoyed working with you as we planned this trip together. Every detail was planned and executed to perfection. Not one fumble from the day we arrived at the Dubrovnik airport until the day we departed from the Split airport. The logistical challenge was formidable and yet you and your colleagues pulled it off without a hitch. Our travel group of ten people with various and diverse needs and interests is not an easy task to manage. Every one of us was thoroughly impressed and satisfied with the level and quality of service provided by the Secret Dalmatia Team of professionals.

I hope I don’t forget any of the great people who helped make our trip so memorable but they all know how important they were to our experience. Our special thanks to:

Our chauffeurs:

Marco and Mario in Dubrovnik and Peljesac

Anton on Hvar

Robert on Solta and in Split

Our yacht crew:

Ivan and Beppo (so capable, professional and very personable)

Our tour guides:

Maris in Dubrovnik

Lori on the Island of Hvar

Dom on the Island of Solta

Our Activity Hosts:

Mario Bartulovic and his lovely family on the Peljesac Peninsula (wine tour and delicious lunch)

Ivo Dubokovic wine tasting on Hvar near Stari Grad

Matte and his wife Michaela at their Kanoba on Hvar (could have been the most outstanding meal we had in Croatia. Unbelievable food and hospitality in an idyllic countryside setting)

Chef Tatjana and her husband Kaja (This is an activity not to be missed. Tatjana has so much energy and love for her cooking class and her students. Everyone was involved in the preparation of the meal . We met as strangers but left their home as friends!)

Goran Tvrdic and his wife Natasha on Solta (Another activity not to be missed. Goran is so knowledgeable as a beekeeper and their hospitality was extraordinary. What a wonderful educational experience and a very enjoyable day with the Tvrdics.)

I would unreservedly recommend Secret Dalmatia to everyone considering a trip to the region. I felt entirely comfortable during the entire planning process with Ivana and Secret Dalmatia. There was never a reason to doubt my decision to engage your company. Long distance communication was never an issue and your responsiveness to my many questions and queries was reassuring. Upon our arrival in Croatia, your attentiveness and follow through continued until our departure from Split. I am amazed!

Warmest regards,

Ron Smith – USA
