This was a great trip for seeing Croatia. You captured the essence of the country and got us away from the crowds between Split and Dubrovnik.

Thank you for offering this trip. It is wonderfully choreographed experience in beautiful countries that includes hiking, expertly guided tours, a national park visit, boat and ferry rides and showcase of local cuisines. We are very grateful to the leaders, Stan and Ingrid, and to the Wilderness staff for all the work it takes to put together this experience. Thank you very much.
