We got picked up close to where we were staying in Zadar, which was very convenient. We got driven with a few other passengers on a bus straight to the park and explored the park on our own (following route C which I would recommend for seeing the most with the time allocated, 6 hours). As the morning was a bit rainy, there were quite few people in the park so we didn't have to wait in line to buy tickets and got on both the ferry and train in the park right away without much difficulty. At the end of the trip we got picked up by the entrance where we were dropped off and drove back to Zadar. Would definitely recommend this trip to those who are fine exploring the park without a guide.

We booked the night before and straight away had the details of our pick up etc and the number for the driver should there be any problems. We were staying a little outside the city centre but they still picked us up near our air bnb which was so convenient.

The lakes themselves are beautiful. Well worth the trip. We did route c as recommended to us by the driver. A lovely route but we walk fast so we’d done it within 3 hours so if you’re like us you might want to try the longer route.

Also, it hadn’t occurred to us that it would be a different climate 🤣 we ended up buying hoodies from the shop on arrival. It was rainy most of the day too - doesn’t detract from the amazing place just be prepared for the change in weather!

Thanks to Danny and Leo 😊

A beautiful park with large waterfalls and wonderful views. Ticket price is quite expensive. Queues to the cash till was not so long when I visited but it is worth to buy two days tickets because there is a lot of walking. The crossing of the lake by the boat was very relaxing and was included on your tickets. It is also worth visiting the local restaurants serving small grilled pigs.

The national park is nothing short of spectacular and we were so glad to have gone without a guide. Our driver purchased the tickets and sent us on our way, which meant that we didn't have to queue for tickets. Everything is clearly signposted and we were able to see everything we wanted to see within the allocated time (seeing more than the route we were advised to take). We packed a lunch and we were glad to have done that too as we could skip queing at the restaurants in the park. It seemed that the groups in the park with guides were moving very slowly and, from what we overheard, did not give any information that wasn't on the information signs along the routes of the park. We were happy to realise that the boat and train trips were included with our ticket. I had seen some other tours mention boat and train tickets included, which isn't a selling point if every park ticket gives you access...

Elegance Tours is a funny name, as there was nothing elegant about it. We were told to go to a collection point near our apartment at 7:30am and were then driven to the old town entrance of Zadar to sit and wait for someone from Elegance Tours to arrive before we could leave. Nobody told us why we were waiting. We didn't leave until 8:15am or so and we were really annoyed to see the bus drive past where we were picked up 45 minutes prior. The driver also had Croatian music playing really loudly on both journeys, which made us desparte to get off the bus as soon as possible.

I would highly recommend a self guided trip to Plitvice, but I find it hard to recommend Elegance Tours to bring you there.

Very well organised.
Very friendly and informative.
Great prices.
We rented bikes for 24 hours and rode along the harbour which was brilliant.
Danny also pre booked us a taxi for the airport which was cheaper than the usual rate.
Can’t recommend this place enough.
Will be using again on our return to Zadar.

It was a good trip to explore Plitvice Lakes, so beautiful place I had ever been. Astonishing view of nature and waterfall, an amazing scenery and crystal clear water, so lovely. Thanks to Elegance tour operator Mr. Danny and the driver Mr. Leo, they were very kind and helpful with the trips information, explaining all in detail how to make our journey safely and back on time for pick up. Much appreciated guys !!. Thanks.

We did the Krka Waterfall from Zadar and the Plitvice lakes. Very polite and informative with no pressure to buy. Made the travel to and from each place easy and allowed them a perfect amount of time for each place. Thank you very much for all your help. Throughly enjoyed both National Parks with you.

The tour was exactly as described and everything was delivered well. Elegance made the trip very easy - the only things you need to know are the times to meet at each end, and the rest of the day you have free to explore as you like. The lakes themselves are beautiful. Dany at the tour office is a very friendly and helpful guy too! Highly recommended!

We did this excursion and it was ok. The excursion was as described ie a shuttle to and from the Plitvice lakes. We left at 8am and arrived at the Lakes around 10.30. We had not been forewarned that we would need to queue in a disorganised shambles for two hours to get our entry ticket, regularly having to fend off people trying to push in! We would have liked the option to leave at 7am to get there ahead of the masses. The staff at the park seemed unfazed about the crowds and the queuing, and there was no effort to make it easier for anyone. No ropes to make the lines obvious and orderly - no extra shade organised - no information about expected waiting times. As you can see the two hours of queuing to get into the park dampened our experience quite a lot.
However Once In the lakes are beautiful. Would I recommend it ? Yes but only if you went very early in the morning or much later in the day.

Thank you for your feedback. Yes, that day was the worst day ever for getting the Plitvice Lakes entrance ticket. The reason was that for two days before it the weather was bad,rainy and cold, so most people from all over postponed it for the next nice day.Plus it was the peak season day also which made it even worse. Usually waiting time is relatively short for an attraction like that.
