Our Travelers

Take a look at what our travelers have to say about their experiences with our travel specialist Wanda S. Radetti and the services of the VisitCroatia.com – Tasteful Croatian Journeys team.

I just wanted to take a moment to add my comments about Wanda Radetti an expert in Croatia. In September 2008 my husband and I spent 2 weeks in Slovenia and Croatia, a wonderful journey planned with the advice of Wanda. She helped us plan our time most effectively and led us to destinations we may not have found on our own. She arranged for car rental when necessary and arranged for guides and drivers when that would be more efficient. Without exception, the personnel she recommended were knowledgeable, courteous, and downright fun. Each accommodation was was wonderful, ranging from large and well known, to small and relatively hidden. Wanda’s restaurant recommendations, along with suggestions for markets, shopping, cultural attractions and sights, enriched our trip immeasurably. I can’t think of a downside to Wanda’s service. Communication with her was excellent and she took the time to understand what we needed from our trip. She was happy to work with our budget while maximizing our experience. I would recommend Wanda and Tasteful Croation Journeys without reservation to anyone planning to travel to this wonderful part of the world.

Whether you are looking for a charter, driver, hotel, restaurant, guide or just about any service in Croatia, Wanda Radetti and staff can arrange it. Wanda’s ability to customize an itinerary/package and explore options with us was superior. She assessed our family’s wants, desires and needs beautifully. The result was an unforgettable customized trip which included hotels, a magnificent boat charter with highly qualified captain and hostess, restaurant recommendations, guides and drivers that were all arranged with flawless precision. Wanda is definitely the “Jewel of the Adriatic” travel agent and on a scale of 1-10, we would rate her and her staff an 11!

I recently completed a wonderful, although time-challenging trip to Croatia. Wanda Radetti of Creative Croatian Journeys did a marvelous job of developing and executing an itenerary that I could have never have done on my own. Our various guides and transportation agents could not have been better and what impressed me most was the fact that Wanda was in continual contact with each of these various entities throughout the entire trip. Her attention to detail is exceptional and I would definitely recommend her to anyone travelling throughout this area.

My wife and I first met with Wanda while we were planning our honeymoon. Though we opted to not travel to Croatia for our wedding trip, we left our meeting with her impressed with her knowledge and enthusiasm for the Dalmatian Coast and determined to plan a trip there for the following summer. In August 2009, the two of (and four friends) contracted Wanda to plan a seven day yacht charter – leaving from Split – to sail the surrounding islands. Every step of the way, Wanda was responsive, courteous and helpful in our planning. She thought of every detail – from the chauffeured transfers to/from the airport/marina, etc. to the choice of captain for our sailing adventure. Wanda took the time to ask us our preferences, and she matched them perfectly. We had a remarkable time on the Adriatic, and have Wanda to thank for all of it. I would HIGHLY recommend her services and look forward to asking her to plan our next journey to the region.

We just returned from our Dalmatian Coast trip arranged by Tasteful Croatian Journeys. Wanda was indeed the expert in the area. Everything she recommended, from hotels, to restaurants, and places to visit worked very well. She also arranged for private transfers and guides in each place we visited- again, everything worked beautifully. We travelled from October 5 through October 21, 2009 and started in Montenegro going North through Dubrovnik, Orebic, Split, Lovran( Istria), Zagreb, Ljubljana, Lake Bled, ending in Trieste. It was a wonderful trip with amazing coastline drives, great historical content, excellent food, very good walks/hikes.

My husband and I were planning our honeymoon and thought Croatia might be the place to go. Boy was it! I consulted the Conde Nast website which recommended Wanda at TCJ. When I called I was greeted with kindness, respect and true interest in our trip, despite the fact we were working on a tight budget. A trip was designed for us around our interests and personalities. Every detail was thought of and we were made to feel like a priority, not just a faceless couple. Upon our arrival in Croatia, we could not have been happier. Every hotel was stellar, every destination was spectacular, and every recommended restaurant was exactly what we wanted. Each hotel and restaurant greeted us with the ultimate of service and care, owing to Wanda’s connections, friendships and reputation in the industry. All of the drivers were outstanding, and took very good care of us, and made sure that we saw all the best sights along the way. Our honeymoon was romantic, exciting, luxurious and truly memorable, all thanks to Wanda and TCJ. Highly recommended!!!

My wife and I used Wanda and Tasteful Croatian Journeys for a week trip to Croatia in September 2009. We were very impressed with the service, attention to detail and itinerary that was put together for us. She listened carefully to what my wife and I wanted to see and do while traveling the Dalmatian coast and made suggestions that were perfect and within our budget. TCJ thought of everything the perfect hotels to stay at in, restaurant recommendations that were right on and excursions that made this trip something we will never forget. The guides, drivers and concierge service TCJ use are fun, knowledgeable and went out of their way to make sure our vacation was as relaxing as possible. Working with Wanda and TCJ was the best decision my wife and I made when planning our trip and I would highly recommend Wanda and Tasteful Croatian Journeys to anyone headed to Croatia.

Wanda Radetti knows it all when in comes to Croatia — Hoteliers, Restaurateurs, Chauffeurs, Tour Guides — only the best tailored to your needs. We enjoyed a wonderful vacation touring from Montenegro through the Dalmatian Coast, the Islands and into Istria. No detail was left to chance. I have never met a travel agent so dedicated to her clients.

Everyone wishes for a vacation to be well planned,trouble free, interesting, and just plain fun. Thanks to Wanda Radetti and Tasteful Croatian Journeys, my sister and I just returned from twelve glorious days in Croatia with all those attributes. Because of Wanda’s planning,we were afforded the opportunity to have extraordinary insightful conversations with knowledgable guides and drivers. We also had the convenience of a Croatian Concierge to check with us daily that all was going smoothly. We truly relaxed, but managed to visit cities, explore the hill towns, drive the coast, and have an adventure at the top of an island on a farm with fresh local food and singing. Wanda is to be highly commended for assisting us in enjoying Croatia to the optimal extent, for her sensitivity to the clients dreams, and for her follow up both at home and in Croatia to be sure those dreams are fulfilled.

My husband and I contacted Wanda to help plan and arrange a special 20 year celebratory adventure to Croatia. It had an exotic/old world appeal and as we knew nothing we looked to put our arrangements in the hands of a seasoned specialist. We were delighted with our trip and highly recommend both the beautiful Croatian coast and the detailed itinerary skillfully planned by Wanda Radetti. Our accomodations, drivers, guides and meals were first-rate. We would love to go back and enthusiatically recommend using Tasteful Croatian Journeys to plan the trip of a lifetime!!
