What to expect
Get an early start with a morning pickup from your select Split hotel. From there, hop inside a minivan and meet your small group for the drive to Plitvice.

Great trip!
Sep 2020 • Friends
This is a great trip, but keep in mind it’s 3 hours away. Our tour guide, whose name I can’t think of right now, tried his best to engage us with the history of Split and the national park, but at 7:30a, everyone was too tired to take much interest. No fault of his though, he was extremely nice and kept us all on time and was available for all the questions we later had. He was a young guy, but really knew his stuff.
As for the park, it’s absolutely gorgeous. Our guide got us there early enough that it wasn’t overly crowded and got us through the park at a leisurely pace that allowed for plenty of pictures. I really enjoyed the trip!

Great Experience, but tour guide could have been more clear on instructions. Also stops on the bus should be shorter to minimize travel times.

Good trip
Early start from split 07:15 with a 20:00 return. 3 hour drive each way but you get a break on each journey to stretch your legs and grab a drink. Fantastic views and a nice steady walk around the lakes and falls. the guide was good and knowledgable.

Although the tour was a long drive it was totally worthwhile. The national Park is one of the most unique and beautiful places I have a have ever experienced. The tour was a small group, mini bus was air-conditioned and had Wi-Fi which definitely helps on such a long ride. Our guide Helena was the highlight of the day, she was outstanding!

A good trip!
We had booked this tour online and I have to say we were a bit skeptical because we had never booked a tour in advance before on tripadvisor and were a bit scared of getting there and seeing other options for the same trip but cheaper. Later we found out there are indeed hundreds of Plitvice trips and maybe for cheaper but the quality of tour definitely changes.

The trip itself was amazing BECAUSE of the place. It’s one of the most beautiful natural parks I have ever visited. Definitely better than Krka and recommend visiting this one if you have to pick one.

However, on the trip itself we had seats right at the back of the minibus and the AC dripped on us the whole way back to Split!! we did not say anything because the bus was full (not very nice during corona times) and there were no places to switch to.
Our guide Elena was lovely, very informative and helpful. Only thing is that she had said that was her 6th consecutive day visiting Plitvice and was a bit tired, also her “excitement” to show the place wasn’t very contagious. She spoke of it like “yeah this is it... enjoy it! I see it everyday so...”
I completely understand that but as a tourist you’re definitely convinced by feeling the guide provides you at the place.

In addition, there was an issue with a couple on the tour coming back which made us wait at the restaurant a bit longer after lunch and we still don’t know what happened, because we weren’t informed of what was going on so we just sat there waiting for the van to come with no information.

OVERALL, nothing that ruined our day and I can guarantee you there are much worse tours. It did not ruin our experience in fact we had a great day, but as I said.. because of the place itself and not the experience. :)

BUT I would recommend this tour.

Undoubtedly a good tour
We were confused between taking a private tour or a group one.
We are glad we took this one. We know there are so many options for plitvice. But this one is really nice. Our guide Elena was good, the best thing was that she took our pictures. Really good ones.

Thanks Sugaman.

Beautiful day

Easiest way to see Plitvice lakes from Split. Didn’t have to worry about getting there and back from Split, Elena sorted our tickets, got a tram ride up, mainly walking down, a boat across the lake, and lots of time for photos (Elena is a great photographer).

Plitvice lakes
The most beautiful national park I have seen and one of the best natural wonders I have experienced in my life. Going during covid meant no queues or crowds. It might not be so enchanting in peak season normally. Do check the weather in Plitvice before you go. It's a completely different climate from Split. So we needed a waterproof and hoody even though it was blisteringly hot in Split. When we went the park was shrowded in mist and it was drizzling with rain nearly all day. The mist did make the park look magical though. Our guide took good care of us and was very informative. A small group as well. Highly recommended.
