Flawless Honeymoon

Kevin & I chose Italy and Croatia for our honeymoon, and we thought we would spend months planning it. The companies we were finding online had poor offer and questionable existence. Then a friend from Solana Beach recommended Adriatic Luxury Journeys with office in La Jolla, California which is very close to us. We checked their offer online, called them and made an appointment. We met with Filip at their office and he had our honeymoon itinerary drafted in no time. We just came back from our honeymoon this September, and we had an amazing time. Every single detailed was flawlessly coordinated, and we could finally relax after a few stressful month of planning our wedding. We could not have done it on our own, and Adriatic Luxury Journeys made it possible for us to enjoy the best of both countries that we always wanted to visit. Thank you for taking such a good care of us.

Great Vacation

I cannot begin to say how great the vacation turned out to be. The hotels & land tours that you helped us with were fantastic. Our private driver was unbelievable. His English was perfect & he was with us the entire week. He was not stuck on "his" schedule but worked with us on our timetable & helped Jeanne when she had a passport issue (long story). The private guides were great & the hotels wonderful. Our sailing week was the perfect companion to the land tour you arranged.

Great Trip

Our driver/guide was extraordinary. His English is excellent, his affable personality, knowledge and sense of humor were value added to his excellent driving. We highly recommend him as a driver for all of your English speaking tourists to Croatia. Our itinerary worked out very well and we were happy with all of the places that we visited. We were very glad that we added Mostar to the itinerary. Accommodations ranged from good to fabulous. The Regent Esplanade was excellent and the breakfasts were amazing. The hotel Villa Tuttorotto in Rovinj is a jewel. The ambiance, the food, the service were all outstanding, so having four nights there was wonderful! Also the Hotel Vestibul in Split within the Diocletian Palace was a treat.

Thank you Maya

My fiance and I did a thorough research for the best company specialized in honeymoons to Croatia & the Adriatic coast, and we opted for the Adriatic Luxury Journeys. We spoke with Maya and she had first-hand immense and valuable knowledge of every little thing about Croatia. She was patient, trustworthy, professional and very creative. We had the Dalmatian Romance honeymoon customized for us with private yacht excursions to the islands of Korčula and Mljet, a private tour of Montenegro and wine tasting with picnic lunch on Pelješac Peninsula. We received list of best local restaurants, we visited wineries, olive oil productions, and local fig farms. We have just recommended Adriatic Luxury Journeys to our friends who are getting married in spring of 2012. Matt and I hope to get back to Croatia again, hopefully as a family. Thank you Maya from the bottom of our hearts.

Thank You

Thank you, thank you, thank you. We are on the plane on route back to the States and I wanted to tell you how very much we enjoyed the trip. The guides were absolutely wonderful and we couldn't have asked for more. We were also impressed that every guide, and every transfer, were exactly where they were supposed to be, when they were supposed to be. We know that you guys have your own ground operation in Croatia and, as I've said, we were delighted with the degree of organization which the trip reflected. Maya, you can feel free to use me as a reference if you like. Again, it was a great trip, with great guides and great accommodations, and we thank you.

Croatia was such a great choice

Thank you Adriatic Luxury Journeys for creating an incredible honeymoon itinerary for us. Will and I just returned from Croatia and we still can't believe what an awesome time we had. The Regent Esplanade in Zagreb was grand and we adored the upper town and the charming Tkalčićeva. The couple of days in Lake Bled and Ljubljana was really a good idea. We both like horses so we stopped by at Lipica stud farm. My favorite time was a tour of Istrian countryside with a visit to tiny town of Motovun. I think we had a best dish of pasta with truffles ever! Our private guide in Istria was really great, she spoke perfect English and gave us a very interesting tour of Pula, Poreč and took us to some best art galleries in Rovinj, too. We enjoyed the Le Méridien in Split and loved the time at the pool, there. Our favorite part was our private excursion on yacht to the islands of Hvar and Korčula, then Mljet and Dubrovnik. The Lešić Dimitri Palace is an absolute heaven! We did not want to leave there, ever. Our drivers were great, and the staff from your local office was always warm, friendly and helpful. We took so many wonderful pictures from our hotel room in Dubrovnik. Croatia was such a great choice for our honeymoon, and we are both happy to found your company. Again, thank you.

The accommodations were absolutely beautiful

I just wanted to thank you for your assistance in planning our recent Croatian trip. As you know, we visited four cities—Zagreb, Opatija, Split and Dubrovnik—and everything about our trip was just perfect! The accommodations were absolutely beautiful. We really enjoyed the Hotel Regent Esplanade in Zagreb (its breakfasts were so elegant) and the Hotel Bellevue in Dubrovnik (which upgraded us to a suite which had a commanding view of the Adriatic Sea). Also, staying at the Hotel Vestibul in Diocletian’s Palace was a truly memorable experience. It was my 60th birthday when we were in Split and we celebrated my birthday by dining in Hotel Vestibul's outdoor café. I can't thank you enough for arranging the drivers, who transported us to each city and the airports. Not only were the drivers always on time, but they were friendly and conversed with us about Croatian sightseeing and cuisine. We also had the opportunity to meet some of my relatives who live in the small town of Smrika, which is near Rijeka. Without your help, our Croatian trip would not have been the memorable experience it was! Once again, thank you for all your help and you can be sure I will be recommending you and your travel agency to my relatives and friends.

I commend you

Now that I am beginning to recover from jet lag, I'd like to share with you some comments and reactions about our recent wonderful trip in Croatia. Despite the frequently inclement weather, we felt the trip was a great success. Your planning for us was efficient - drivers and guides were always prompt and helpful. The choice of hotels was excellent. We felt that all of our private guided tours were well done with knowledgeable guides who spoke excellent English. I think the amount of time we had in Zagreb was abut right - and the hotel was excellent. We had strukli at the hotel and kremsnita at Vincek bakery and they were great. I do want to reiterate that the trip was, on the whole, wonderful despite the weather (we knew October could be iffy). I commend you for virtually all aspects of your tour management and I will be happy to recommend you to others, as I have with my good friend. With thanks and best wishes,

You did an excellent job

We have just returned from our Croatia Trip and it was so very good. You did an excellent job with all the set ups and the days at the different places were perfect. Our driver that took us the last day to Sas and Slovinci was so very very good. He made our first visit with our non English speaking relative very nice. Marianna, the Croatian contact was also very helpful. If you could give me her email I would like to personally thank her also. Do you plan other trips besides Croatia? We were very pleased. Thank you.

Dear Maya-

Thank you so much for the gift of wine and wishes for our anniversary and for planning the most perfect- amazing trip.  As I sure you must realize- we fell in love with Croatia and Slovenia and never wanted to see the trip end.  You took care of every aspect of planning and we appreciate everything that you did.  We can not stop telling people what they are missing out on and hopefully we can refer friends and family to you so that they can experience a trip like this, too.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

All our best-

Ali and Adam Coyne

You have exceeded our expectations

We absolutely loved our private tour of Croatia and Montenegro! You have exceeded our expectations every step of the way!  From luxury accommodations and rooms with best views, awesome drivers and guides, choice of local restaurants and menus…I simply don’t know where to stop.  We learned so much about life and people there and we will cherish this wonderful experience for a very, very long time.

We were sooo happy with your excellent itinerary design and coordination.  Not having to spend long time in the mini bus each day was exactly what we needed, and your team delivered it all to the perfection!

Thank you so much for planning such a thoughtful trip and for taking care of every single details for all six of us!

What an amazing experience!

Wow!  We had an amazing time in Slovenia & Croatia.  Everything went smoothly and we really enjoyed every minute of our vacation. Hotels were exactly what we like, guides and drivers were so friendly, personable and knowledgeable.  Our guide in Ljubljana and Lake Bled was like a family to us.  We never knew Croatia's wine was so good.  Thank you for all of the wine tastings near Split in Hvar and Peljesac.  We had an opportunity to meet with a wine maker that you arranged for us.  I am attaching a few photos that I know use as my bragging rights with friends:)

Thank you, Tom and everyone at Adriatic Luxury Journeys for taking such a great care of us and for offering us the best rate, too!  We have already recommended you to many of our friends.

Cheers,
