An Amazing trip from Split with an awesome guide Sandra from Booker tour Agency. The office was right in the centre of the town and after a 4 hr jounrey in the bus from Split with a nice stop too, we reached the amazing Lakes. Remember that this is Lakes and not for waterfalls (even though there is a waterfall - It depends on the season too). Anyhow, It is a 9 km easy hike and the guide helps us and have a frequesnt stops and mostly easy hike along the lakes. We cover both the upper lakes ( black) and the white lakes. Along with the stories of Black Queen... The entire tour was awesome and even the people in the tour were amazing

A very well organized trip. The guide walked with us around the park (you could also go alone) and it was great for those who were afraid of getting lost, because the park is huge. On the route there was always a stop in a nice place in terms of food, in the park we also had a break to eat something. Mrs. Clara has a great sense of humor and it was a pleasure to visit this park with her.

Great trip, well worth doing. We decided to go with the option of self-guide while at the park, and that worked great for us. That said, Sandra, our tour guide, took good care of us all through the day. She kept in touch all throughout the day to ensure we kept safe, not lost and on time. At the end both us and the group did program H, which is one of the longest and you see plenty without much hassle. The bus drive was also quite comfortable. As I said, absolutely recommend the trip, even more if Sandra is involved!
