Krka national park is like heaven on earth and is a must. The tour was great and we learned a lot. Our guide was very helpful and answered all of our questions. The city of Primosten is also very interesting and cute. The only thing I would have to say is that we would have enjoyed more free time in the park than in Primosten to do the tour without having to rush to take the bus. But otherwise it was amazing and would definitely do it again.

Such a great day with skipper Brane - always in good mood - and Lovro - best guide ever! Everything was perfect! Organisation', boat, music, beaches, free walking tour in Trogir with quickest step into history, architecture and good live in Croatia. We enjoyed every single minute of this joyfully trip!
