    We were picked up on time and taken up to the lakes by a mini bus being a smaller group. The bus was very comfortable, the guide for the day was very informative and very helpful throughout the day. The lakes didn't disappoint. Stunning. Even at this time it was busy, but comfortable, would hate to think what it is like in July and
    Overall great day, albeit a long one.
    Our 5 year old was exhausted by the end of the day but he did manage to walk all the way.

    We went on quite a hot day so we needed lots of water! The tour operator was very organised and the bus ride was very informative. Once at the park there is no information at all, you are just herded like cattle along the walk way. I felt that there was too much walking at the start and the second part of the day was over too quick. We went on a ferry crossing that lasted about 1 minute then walked for about 2 hours with no breaks. The paths are very conjested and there is not much room for photo taking. We then had a break and caught the bus to go see the water fall. I would definately reccomend not going in summer as there isn't much water and it is extremely hot and busy. The tour was convinient but not necessary. If you have a car drive yourself and get there as soon as the park opens to avoid some of the crowds. The tour was fine but a few more stops to break the day up and some information inside the park would make it better value for money.

    The park itself is amazing, even better than it looks in the photos. The walking paths next to waterfalls and through the forest are simply wonderful. Our guide Zrinka was great!

    Fantastic day out and views that are out of this world! Be prepared that the weather at plitvice is totally different to zadar. You needs to wear comfy shoes and take layers. Totally worth the money.

    This was fantastic! A must do for sure. Just be prepared to walk, walk and walk some more. We were there in 40degree weather which was quite a challenge. Keep hydrated!! Very well organised park. loved it!

    Beautiful and well worth seeing. We the English speakers were combined with German speakers on our tour, so we spent the day with people we couldn't communicate with which was a shame. At best we were mostly with with people we couldn't speak to, and at worst a rude family of 3. The mother of which looked distresssd after a day in the heat and it wasn't possible to even ask if she was ok.

    The Plitvice National Park is an amazingly beautiful place and I would definitely recommend it as a place for a visit if you are visiting Croatia. It is a haven for wildlife and is in such pristine condition. The easiest way of visiting seems to be a coach tour which is what we did via Viator. Our local guide gave us good information on the coach to the Park but provided very little information when we were there, particularly absent was any assistance in identifying the fauna and flora. This was the only negative on what was otherwise a memorable day.

    This is a must do tour when in Zadar region. The tour was an all day affair and well worth it. We looked at bears, walked the falls, had a great lunch, enjoyed the nature. Would do again!
