Got what I wanted. Bus ride to and from Plitvice. Reliable service, and they gave simple instructions.

Absolutely stunning blue

A must do experience and trip. If you only have time for one day trip, this one is a must. The scenario and lakes are so incredibly beautiful, unlike anything I’ve ever seen. I was worried about the no guide option but quickly realized a guide would be useless. Not as much walking as expected and would have opted for th longer trail if I knew that. Do not leave taking the boat till the last minute as it took over 30mins for waiting in line. Also, the train ride is not a train, it’s a bus so don’t rush to it. Additionally, the first restaurant at gate 1 is the best option for food. The only options throughout the park are trash.

The most beautiful lake
Rijil_T
, Jul 2022
This was the most beautiful experience for us in Zadar/Croatia. Even though the weather was really hot due to the peak of summer in July, we had no trouble enjoying this mesmerising nature and trekking through the trails. There is enough shades and the breathtaking view to keep you amazed all the time. Truly a must visit spot in Croatia. The transport and tickets were very well arranged by the tour operators.

Beautiful place and well organized. Even though it was very busy it didn't feel over crowded. It did feel a bit rushed to fit it all in and get back in time for the bus though.

Straightforward and no fuss! Park is amazing!

Indeed as advertised- simple and straight forward with no much fuss. The transport and tickets were all taken care of so it’s not complicated. The hotel pick-up was good. The bus on the return trip could also crank up the air condition as it was so warm inside after a long ride. The missing star was also due to the much waiting time and the guide could have done slightly better in his minimal instructions of the route at the starting of the park. The park itself is amazing though and not to be missed!

Plitvice is a truly beautiful place, the colours you see are amazing. Though I had a very wet day for my visit it was still worth it. Quite busy but not too bad. The drive up was well organised and a very friendly guy.

Great day

Everything was good, the only thing actual bus didn't really had an air con, so it was warm. They recommended route B which was good. But if you walk quite fast and take minimum breaks defo go for c. We had a few stops, took our time and still had almost 1h spear.

The Falls are outstanding even with our late start
Kari_T

Had an 8:00 am start time and while by ship only docked at 8:00 am I was with the driver promptly at 8:01 am. Our van had 3 other passengers who booked from various other locations. Sadly we waited until 8:30 AM for more passengers who came from yet another company. In reality, we had more than enough time at the park and did route B, boat ride, C, and a bit of K. Our driver did not engage or speak very well English which was OK since all of us in the van spoke amongst ourselves. Also tipping of drivers is not common and with is lack of communication and poor local music choice no one felt obligated to tip.

Wonderful park
Steve_M

Plitvce was amazing in every way. The paths are well marked and easy to understand. The beauty of the waterfalls, seen from so many angles was a wonderland. Our bus ride was safe and in a comfortable small bus, seating wise. However, there were several problems that the driver could change for another group. When we arrived, he very quickly told us to meet back at that spot at 3:30 and then took off over a staircase while our group struggled to keep up and find the rest of the group. Once we arrived at our starting point, I felt disoriented and unsure of how to get back to the bus. The driver showed us the park map and made suggestions and gave us our tickets. We had a wonderful time but had trouble knowing which bus was ours since it was unmarked and we had taken off so fast. There was some confusion about numbers since some people were in the wrong bus. Once we left, there was no airflow and it got stiflingly hot. When I requested air, the temperature went down to 17 Celsius. Burrr. It seems like there’s a middle ground. So to me, my issues are easily fixable and most of the trip was very good.

Worth it!

Pick up and drop off option is quite helpful. Route B is ok in general, but you can choose a longer route D/E (I think) if you have all day as the park is open until 1830. Cafes and restrooms are available at every stop point which is really good. No need to bring food, maybe just light snacks and water if you want to stop and eat by the side of a lake (clean as you go). Boat and bus trips as available within the park, which are included in your entrance ticket price. Really nice view and paths.

Pitvice Lakes is fantantic. I highly recommend it. We aren’t very fond of guided tours. So, this was the perfect option for us. We were allowed to experience the park on our own for 4.5 hours. Longer would have been better, but this was adequate.

Beautiful national park to hike independent
Elke_M
, Apr 2022
We did book the excursion without a guide and we were happy we did. The park is wonderful and it's nice to hike through the park on your own pace. You can choose between different routes, depending on how much time you have. You don't need to be a good hiker or have a great physique :)

Easy transport to the lakes

This is a bus ride to and from nothing more but makes planning easy. TIP Bring headphones/earplugs because the bus driver assistant never stops talking and she is LOUD! Also no English speaking driver or assistant. The man that works at Elegance Tours is great and very helpful. Highly recommend him. The lakes were absolutely spectacular a must see experience.

Keep on walking
Mashud_M

Thoroughly enjoyed the scenic walk. Underestimated the duration and amount of walk involved. Contacted our rep and was picjed up from station 2. Tips: Take contact number of your travel rep. Don't stop. Keep on walking. Toddlers and young kids will need help near the end. Will need extra support. Also, in October will need extra layer as it felt chilly in the morning.
