Dubrovnik and the Dalmatian Coast

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

We were fortunate that a Croatian music festival was going on while we were visiting the old city of Dubrovnik, and were able to hear symphonic and operatic music within the old walled city one evening after a dinner.

What did you think of your group leader?

The group leader, Zelko Zarak, was a very knowledgeable leader with superb English skills. In addition to his historical and local knowledge, he was more like a friend than guide, integrating himself into our group dinners and activities. Even though our Dubrovnik dinner ended around midnight, he still encouraged us to listen to the Croatian music festival, while still keeping the group together under very crowded circumstances. Truly, I believe he is a reason why our group of 15 bonded so well.

Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

As our tour included several walks along city walls, a climb up to the top of Montokuc, and many optional climbs up church steeples and minarets, booking the tour in cooler months may be a plus. We went in mid-July.
