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.

We had a wonderful experience in Croatia! We loved Medjugorje and our guide, Juliana who was very insightful and informative. She spoke perfect English and was such a great guide. Our drivers all around were excellent. We had great experiences with Tom, Mladen, and Josip on all our private chauffeur driven transfers and excursions. The travel experience was completely first class, extremely professional and overall a terrific itinerary. All of our service providers, the guides, drivers, captain and crew on the yacht were excellent. We had a fabulous trip and strongly recommend using Wanda’s Tasteful Croatian Journeys services!

Dear Wanda,

We have just returned from our Croatian journey, as you know. It was all a delight and the afterglow will linger a long time.

The hotels were fine, the sights glorious, the guides all excellent and – best of all – our sailboat and crew. I cannot recommend our captain and hostess enough (Marena and Verdan.) They were superb sailors and companions; our boat was well outfitted and extremely comfortable.

The entire experience was smooth and reliable. Ernie and I are veteran travelers and know there are often problems that happen behind the scenes, but this was perfectly executed! We look forward to recommending you to others.

All best, Naomi

Dear Wanda,

Just a little note to thank you for planning such a wonderful trip. It was truly an event. All of your people were so knowledgeable and friendly and are a credit to your organization. It was great having your local concierge to rely upon when necessary.

We did speak with Anna Grgic and the food at her Le Bistro was amazing. I did have the strukli.

We did get a real education in those great Croatian wines.

The experience in Prislice was very moving for me. After seeing the names in the cemetery there, it is evident that over half of our parishioners here at St. Nicholas Croatian Church in Pittsburgh have roots in that area.

Also in the Mirgoj Cemetery in Zagreb, we found a plot of Zivic graves.

You definitely should add Ruzmarin in Opatija and a new restaurant in Spit called Zoi to your recommended list. A local recommended Vinodol in Zagreb and arranged a reservation. We were seated in the middle of the restaurant and treated like royalty by the owner/chef Mario Cepak. He is a real showman and the food is spectacular. Visitors to Korcula would also probably enjoy the Maxo Vanka Museum and the spectacular setting of its cafe.

It would have been impossible for us to have duplicated this experience on our own.
We will not hesitate to use your services in planning our next trip.

Wanda did a great job arranging our trip to Croatia. Everything from our lodging to the drivers and tours went off without a hitch. On our next visit to Croatia, we will use Wanda’s services again. Thanks for everything!

Fabulous trip to the southern Dalmatian coast.
Wanda Radetti organized an amazing vacation that we will never forget. What made this trip unique was the availability of the “in-country” Tasteful Croatian Journeys concierge.

She welcomed us at the various hotels, she made restaurant reservations for us, coordinated meeting times with our guides, paid attention to every small detail to make our trip pleasurable, but most importantly, she was available and extremely helpful when my traveling companion got sick.

The in- country concierge is an invaluable service and I am looking forward to booking with Tasteful Croatian Journeys again in the near future to explore other parts of Croatia.

I thought that Visit Croatia Travel was very professional. The staff in New York and Croatia were on top of everything. I would certainly recommend this agency if you are planning a trip to Croatia. Best, Carol

Dear Wanda,

We write to thank you and your team for making our anniversary trip to Croatia even more memorable than we imagined.  As you know, we were concerned about our 2 weeks in Croatia since we have mobility challenges and we were traveling with a folding travel scooter.  Your planning was perfect for us – the hotels were first class, and the drivers and guides were prepared for our special needs.
We visited Zagreb, Split, Orebic/Korcula, and Dubrovnik, with a day trip to Kotor, during our vacation.  The drivers all spoke excellent English, and except for one late pickup, were on time in comfortable and well maintained vehicles.  We especially enjoyed Josip – absolutely delightful!  The tour guides were all extremely informative and followed our lead on what we were most interested in seeing and learning about beautiful Croatia.
We most appreciated your helpful suggestions for dining, shopping and local customs (like tipping).  We referred to them daily!  It is difficult to pick our favorites – end-to-end, the vacation was well planned, organized and executed.  It was always a great comfort to know that we had a local consigner to contact should we need any assistance.
We traveled in each city very well with our mobility limitations.  There were certainly some areas that we could not reach due to numerous steps and lack of ADA access, but it did not diminish our overall experience at all.  We highly recommend travel to Croatia with Wanda’s guidance for those with mobility challenges.
Thank you to you and your team for making our anniversary a memory we will treasure forever!

Dear Wanda,

We had the trip of a lifetime in Croatia and wanted to thank you and Iva for all your help and guidance.  We thought our itinerary was a perfect balance of Dubrovnik/Split as well as Istria and Zagreb – we feel like we had a great overview of Croatia.  In every city your guides and drivers were great – very friendly and knowledgeable. Your suggestion of spending a day on a boat made for an amazing and memorable day.  And all the hotels you suggested were perfect, as were your restaurant suggestions.  We packed in a lot in 10 days but  everything was so well planned we didn’t have to worry and could just relax and enjoy beautiful Croatia.  We can’t wait to go back to Croatia soon!

 

Thanks again

Dear Wanda,

Thank you  for planning a such a great trip for us. We appreciate your diligence in making sure every detail was attended to during our wonderful Croatian vacation. Our drivers and tour guides were perfect, the geography was gorgeous, the walled cities and their history were amazing, the food and wine was divine, and everyone we met was so warm and welcoming – our trip exceeded our expectations!

Croatia and it’s people will have a special place in our hearts, and we will encourage our friends to visit your beautiful country, via “Visit Croatia” of course!
