Cycling the Dalmatian Coast
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?
The opportunity to have a group of eight friends from the USA be exposed to this beautiful countryside, the most friendly Croatian people and the exertion and rewards of doing some cycling amidst the fine meals and local wines.
What did you think of your group leader?
Marko Mitic is a gem ! The trip was very well organized, he was a font of knowledge about Croatia, he was incredibly personable and engaged and he was always looking out for the clients. The trip would not have been the same, nor as memorable, without him. His organizing call of "guys, guys, guys" became the rallying cry throughout the trip. The man is a piece of work and he was most appreciated by all.
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?
The trip notes, on reflection, were very accurate. The cycling, at least on the first two days, was more demanding in part than anticipated so it might be helpful to include the length of the "challenging" hills and the grade percentages. In the end it made no difference but it would have been good to have more of an appreciation of the climbs beforehand. My advice: "do this trip !"
Is there anything else you would like to add?
Just a note of thanks.... while we've done a good bit of traveling this was our first guided trip. Everything was done beautifully and the experience was beyond expectations because of the good work done by Exodus staff behind the scenes and Marko out front. We'll be back.
