    I loved the tour and the places that were chosen for us to experience. Everything from the places (Opertij, Stefanic Agrotourismo in Motovun, Makarska, Plitvice, dinner with the musical family outside Dubrovnik - just to name a few, the trip was eye-opening and the history of the land captivating. We're so glad to have taken this trip. We would have. The border crossings were crazy, especially at Montenegro, but we're still glad we got to visit Kotor.

    My best experience was Montenegro because both of the guides had low pitched voices and I was able to hear all they said. My hearing loss does not permit me to hear high pitched tones. Unfortunately, although the main guide was truly a gem, she had a very high pitched voice and I was able to hear only approximately 20% of what she said so a great learning experience was lost.

He was informative, humorous, and pleasant at all times. His suggestions for activities, shopping and dining on free time were helpful. *The sights of Croatia and Slovenia were more beautiful than I had imagined, and the history was far more interesting than (I thought) I knew.

    Overall, the tour, and especially our tour manager, was excellent. However, the meal on the final night (in Zagreb) was not up to expectations- the food was average, at best, and the service slow. Also, baggage handling in several hotels was slow, especially upon arrival. Based upon experiences at previous hotels, many guests felt it necessary to take baggage to their rooms themselves at the final two hotels.

    Croatia as beautiful, but there are a few items your company needs to improve to come up to your standard. Our tour director, Neb, made the tour enjoyable despite the constant change of hotels, etc. I was disappointed that Montenegro was not offered as advertised . Some of the hotels did not have a safe in the room. One of the hotels had a safe that was not secured to a solid surface.. DUH !... Coffee pots were not in every hotel room. The wifi on the bus was inconsistent. Only a limited few were able to log on and use it successfully.

The Welcome Dinner was a wonderful treat, and I enjoyed it immensely. The local guides were all superb, pleasant and informative. I would have to rate the day in Istria with the very hilly terrain, local church and the wonderful, wonderful Agritourism meal as a highlight for me. I also loved the day in Ljubljana, shopping in the local market, and getting to see the little parades in Zagreb. I enjoyed learning the history of the area, and the "old towns" were delightful with the cobblestones and crooked alleys.

    Croatia, Slovenia, and Montenegro are beautiful countries with so much to explore. Collette tour was very nicely done, led by a very capable, professional and fun tour guide. We had excellent local tours, nice meals, and good hotels. The only reason for the 4 star instead of 5 was too much driving time spent in the bus. Highly suggest Collette re-route this tour, so you start in north and simply end in the south.

    We thought the tour was of good quality, and we enjoyed our fellow tour members. Our tour manager was caring and helpful, and our bus driver was excellent. Dubrovnik was spectacular, and the hotel there was lovely, right on the water. But because of severe crowds, visits to Plitvice Lakes and Diocletian's Palace in Split were not very enjoyable. Stops at smaller locations were more fun, like lunch/dinner at agriturismo on Istrian Peninsula, at Ston, Croatia, and at Lake Bled, Slovenia. More time was needed for the additional trip to Montenegro. The tour should have left at 8:00 a.m. to give a longer period of time to explore Kotor. Dealing with passports and border crossings slowed down the trip. It would have been helpful to have a list of tour member names, home town, and email addresses in the tour booklet. We'd prefer to have gratuities included in the price of the tour--it's a nuisance to have the right amount for all the guides, bus driver, and tour manager. Two long days in the bus could have been avoided by planning the itinerary in a different way. Because the Croatian coast is so beautiful, could a portion of the tour be on a small ship, visiting a couple islands?

    The Collette Tour to Discover Croatia, Slovenia & the Adriatic Coast was my first tour with Collette and it far exceeded my expectations. The tour group consisted of 27 adults from the US, UK, Mexico and Australia. All participants were able to fully participate in the outings (lots of walking in the heat & swimming in the Adriatic). Group members were friendly and respectful to the other guests, guides, and locals. The hotel accommodations, travel arrangements, tour bus, food, sights, itinerary and our Tour Guide & the local guides were excellent. Our Dubrovnik Hotel was a 5 star hotel on the Adriatic - magical! tCroatia is a beautiful country, great food, interesting, long history and a first world country. Our Tour Guide was intelligent, articulate, friendly, professional, caring and a wealth of interesting history and stories. He followed up with us to ensure that anything we may have brought to his attention was promptly addressed. I'm looking forward to booking my next Collette tour.

    We did not spend enough time at any one destination giving us few options of what we could do in our free time. Our free time on this trip was minimal. There were too many early morning starts and we drove the length of the country twice. We heard conflicting information from two different tour guides on the same day. We went through Malania Trump's home village and there was no mention of it from the tour guide. She is only the first lady of the United States of America. Our excursion to Montenegro was a big bust. It was a full day's drive and we were there only a short time for a little loop around the city, eating lunch and back on the bus. I liked walking the wall in Dubrovnik and if we had taken the boat ride I would have missed that. We should have been there longer to experience whatever there was to offer no matter the cost.

    The tour should have started in Zagrab and we should have stayed there a few days to rest up after our long journey, sightseeing, museums, etc. Instead we had to get on a bus and travel another two hours only to zig zag back and forth across the countries on the bus. When we got back the last day, hoping to finally spend some time in Zagrab we were in a different hotel than promised because ours was overbooked. The town with the shops were too far away and coming in late afternoon there was not much time once again to see what Zagrab was all about. We did not have enough time to do anything or we would have missed the farewell dinner. Dubrovnik, walking the wall was our favorite experience along with the Plitvice National park and the waterfalls. Stopping at the side of the road to look at lakes was not our idea of sight seeing/touring ...we have 10,000 lakes in Minnesota. The trip was planned very poorly and way tooooooo much time on the bus.

Our tour director was superb, and her vast experience allowed the group to take full advantage of everything possible. Although the weather was colder than expected, the two snowy adventures, i.e. hiking in the snow at Plitvice National Park, and taking an open pletna boat on Lake Bled in the snow (then climbing 99 snowy steps) were unforgettable! Dubrovnik was magical. Every stop could be adapted to individuals' abilities, as needed. The included meals were enjoyable, and offered sufficient variety, and the hotels were all very good.

    When we called before booking, we were told by an agent that we couldn't add a few days in Venice at the front-end of our tour. If we did, we were told that we would miss our transfer to Opatija. When we arrived at the Venice airport, the 32 person group from Edmonton was already on the bus, having been picked up after 3 or 4 days in Venice. This was SO UPSETTING. We missed Venice because of wrong information given by your agent. SO DISAPPOINTED.

    Montenegro trip was a bust. Again a waste of time. Only spent 1.5 hours at the destination. Most of the time we were on the bus. Could have shortened the travel by taking the ferry both ways.

    Bled, Slovenia was the best part of the trip. And we weren't given enough time there - so we could get to the next spot to eat.

    Too many scenic memories to select just one. Coast line was spectacular. Slovenia was unexpectedly fabulous. UNESCO sites are breathtaking. Visits to the family farms are always fun. Overall however it was the tour manager who seamlessly made it all work.*Personal Details removed by Feefo* is outstanding. We hope to travel with him again. One piece of feedback we have re: accommodations is - can you consider placing repeat customers (we've used you 9 times) in the better rooms set aside for Collette. It was not unusual to hear first time travelers getting much larger rooms with larger bathrooms.

    I was so surprised to see how beautiful Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, was. The scenery on the Dalmatian coast is breathtaking, but this beautiful city has charm of its own.

    This was our family's first tour with Collette and we all loved it. Our tour manager was knowledgeable and fun. The bus driver, Bozo, was professional and knew his way around every nook and cranny. Everything ran smoothly with a few minor exceptions, involving weak air conditioning at 2 hotels (we never bothered to complain). Our family arrived a few days early to spend time on the island of Krk where my in laws were born. Opatija was charming...I would spend more time there. Dubrovnik and Slovenia were both stunning. I could live without Split and Montenegro, however. My favorite memory included the optional day trip to Istria and the unforgettable meal we shared deep in the countryside. The final group dinner in Zagreb on our last night together was a lot of fun which included a delicious meal just a short walk from the hotel. We had a delightful group of 34 people from all over the world ranging in age from 18 to 80. We booked our airfare through Collette and received round trip ground transportation from our home to the airport and back home again. Collette even arranged hotel and transportation for us pre-tour for our early arrival to tour Krk. I also appreciated calling Collette and not having to jump through hoops to speak to someone. Everyone in the office is very helpful and sweet. I would not hestitate to book another tour with Collette.
