The tour was excellent. The guide was extremely knowledgeable. There were only four of us on the tour as it was the off season, but we were on a small minibus so even full it would have been a small group. We ended up ahead of schedule so we went to couple of extra spots which were lovely. The food and drink were great too.

Our guide Katya is friendly and knowledgeable about The Game of Thrones and its characters. She shows us the sites where certain scenes were filmed, proofed with related pictures in her hand. She saved the best for last - The Walk of Shame,and more... but I'm not gonna spoil it. So book her and find out!

This tour is a must do in Croatia. From the minute you get on the boat you will be amazed at the stunning scenery. The national park is just beautiful, waterfalls after waterfalls. Our guide was professional, friendly and fun. I would definitely recommend this tour, it’s great value for money
