Over the past decade, our family (parents and teens) have been fortunate to see most of Europe using the large tour bus companies (Globus, Cosmos, Gate 1, etc.). This year, with the addition of my 86 year old mother on the trip, we decided it would be best to travel by private van instead. After researching and reading the reviews on this site, we worked with Cromotion to create a 7 day land and 7 day sea private tour itinerary. From our first email to their office and throughout our many email conversations, Cromotion Tours were outstanding in creating an itinerary that would work for our family.
Suggestions on Hotels in Venice, Dubronovic, and Rome were excellent and resulted in fantastic rooms, perfect locations, and excellent values.
After three nights in Venice, we were met at our Hotel by our driver/guide-Ivan in Venice, and took a private water taxi to the car park where our large air conditioned van awaited. After a 4 hour drive to Zagreb, Croatia, our 7 day land tour started. We visited over 80% of the country from north to south. The included hotels were excellent and located in the city centers (not always the case on bus tours) and gave us the opportunity to thoroughly explore each destination. The included meals and private wine tours were fantastic and highlights of our trip.
On our second night in Zagreb, we were hosted by Marianna, the owner of Cromotion Tours, at a fabulous feast in one of the top restaurants in town. She explained her philosophy on why she started her own agency, and said that she had personally inspected all of the hotels we would be staying at in Croatia, and the included special events that she had planned for us.
During the week, our guide Ivan was very personable and knowledgeable. With a degree in Tourism and Marketing and his wife in the banking industry, he was able to explain the social, political and historical aspects of his country. He was very helpful with my mother and made sure that she was able to traverse difficult areas of the cobblestone walkways and streets. He suggested and was able to book several dinner reservations for our family throughout the tour that were great values for the money.
For our second week, Ivan picked us up at our Hotel and delivered us to the boat Pape Prvi of Katerina Lines for a 7 day cruise to the many small islands. As a A+ class boat (Air Conditioned, English breakfasts, 3 course lunches, and two dinners included) it was not the most luxurious boat cruise available (Deluxe is $2000 more a week pp), but we felt that it was a Great value for the price. With only 32 passengers aboard, this week was an interesting and very relaxing time.
Returning to Dubrovnik, we stayed at the Hilton Palace Hotel steps from the main entrance to the old city. Our executive class rooms came with full access to the private lounge throughout the day and included a free happy hour nightly from 6pm to 8pm with unlimited open bar and Hors d'oeuvres with a private balcony overlooking the walled city.
A short flight to Rome after 3 nights and we were at another Cromotion recommended Hotel della Conciliazione just 5 blocks from the Vatican.
Working with Cromotion to create an itinerary that our three-generation family would enjoy was a breeze. We appreciated their quick response, flexibility, and devotion to ensure we enjoyed our trip. For the service and price, Cromotion goes beyond what a normal travel agency offers and it will be hard to find this level of service, pride in the product that they offer, and value for our future trips throughout the World.

We had an amazing journey on wonderful Plitvice Lakes, thanks to Cromotion agency and owner Marina Juras. Our guide Ivan took us to the lakes where we enjoyed all day in walking around magnificent lakes. Ivan was so friendly and helpful and we will never forget this day! We recommend this day trip and Cromotion as your trip organizer.

Zagreb, Dubrovnik, Split, Plitvice Lakes, and Rovinj - Interesting history and breathtaking nature; definitely a food and wine country! Cromotion agency organized a 10 day tour which was absolutely astonishing!

From the first moment we met Ivan, our guide, we knew we would have a wonderful time in Croatia. He is very knowledgeable about Croatia and its history, but explains everything with such enthusiasm that I found myself wanting to know more. That being said, I plan on returning next year for an island tour!

Thank you, Marina and Ivan, for an incredible journey and I look forward to booking with you again next year! Hvala ti puno :)

Our tour within Croatia and Slovenia was superb, beautiful and our guide Katarina could not be better. Worship, informative and super dedicated. Thank you Marina and Katarina…. until the next time. You are simply the best!
