My wife and I recently returned from a wonderful visit to Croatia. A friend recommended Marina and Cromotian. From the start Marina was great to work with as she planned a vacation to remember. Every detail was looked after. And it lived up to everything we hoped it would be. Vjeko was our guide, driver and host. He spoiled us rotten and we were sorry to say goodbye to him. I would do it all again! THX Marina and Vjeko.

Wow, what a wonderful holiday! Marina put together a great itinerary for us and Vjeko executed it flawlessly.
We visited beautiful locations along the Adriatic staying at terrific hotels. It was so nice not having to worry about any of the details during our vacation as Vjeko took care of everything (even the umbrellas). Cromotion is every professional and efficient.
Croatia was awesome. The food and the wine were outstanding. Everything exceeded our expectations.
Croatia is the perfect blend of beautiful scenery and fascinating history with beautiful architecture.
We hope to go back one day and when we do we will be calling Marina. We definitely recommend Cromotion.

Ordinarily John and I don't BOTH post reviews of a company or hotel, but for our most recent tour of mainland Croatia as organized by Marina of Juras, Director of GREAT NATURE d.o.o., Cromotion Travel Agency, we're making an exception.

You can read the details of our travels in John's review, directly below my review.

Our experience with Marina in setting up the trip, months in advance, was wonderful. She was thorough, anticipated every need, made great suggestions for places to visit based on what we told her about ourselves, and her responses to questions were always timely and complete.

DURING the trip, it was clear to use that she was on top of everything - she knew where we would be, and kept in good communication with us, throughout.

Vjeko, our driver-guide, was a delight. I felt absolutely comfortable with his driving prowess, knowledge of efficient or beautiful routes depending on what we felt like seeing, and he was somehow able to deliver information, humour and scheduling information to us WHILE we driving!

Vjeko and John enjoyed talking about motorcycles, roads, all types of cars, so that was entertaining to listening to!

He's also a sommelier, so our visits to wineries (did I even MENTION the delicious Croatian wines???!!!) and restaurants (I MAY have gained a little weight) were much enhanced by his knowledge of all of the hedonistic pleasures of gastronomy.

Vjeko looked after all luggage wrangling, parking-finding, and line-ups for tickets. If you've ever travelled, you'll appreciate how much time can be wasted when you're doing that on your own.

Both Marina and Vjeko are fluent in English. This is important because there aren't always English translations of signs in museums, galleries, menus, etc.

WE felt like adopting both Marina and Vjeko when we left Croatia. They both know that if they're ever in Toronto, they have a place to stay. Surely this won't be the last time we see them.

Thank you, Cromotion.

I'm posting photos from only our LAST day with Vjeko, purposefully, to demonstrate how action (and fun) packed every single day of our trip was.

N.B. We only did what we wanted to do. If we wanted some days to be slower, more beach and reading time, then that's what we did. We were in the driver's seat, even though we didn't have to be in the driver's seat!

Marina at Cromotion is wonderful. She set up an eight day private tour for Patti and I. We landed in Zagreb, and Marina arranged transport for us to the coastal islands of Brac and Hvar. Stunning views and beautiful cycling. Then we took the ferry from Hvar to Dubrovnik.

Cromotion put us in a fantastic hotel and arranged a great tour and lunch for us in Dubrovnik. The next day, our driver/guide Vjeko picked us up and we began our eight-day travel by car to Zagreb. Incredible. We traveled up the coast, visiting small towns between Dubrovnik, Split, Zadar, and the Istrian Peninsula. All hotels and city guides were perfect. Truly a lovely part of the world. We also visited the impressive waterfalls of Plitvice Lakes. Then made our way back to Zagreb, with tours of the city and the countryside around Trakoscan Castle.

Vjeko never let us down. Truly a gracious and conscientious host at all times. Very safe driver. Many stories about Croatia, including the history, the life, the politics, the sports, the problems, and, especially, the food and wine!

Oh yes - the food and wine. Olive oil, the wine regions, the specialty liquors and wines, the seafood, the cheese, the meats. Vjeko made sure that we were very well fed every day. He joined us sometimes, but always respected our privacy. He also made sure we had lots of time to swim in the Adriatic. Beautiful.

I cannot say enough about Marina and Vjeko. Patti and could not have had a better vacation, in every way. Thank you!!!!! Highly recommended!!!!!

We have recently returned from a cricket tour to Italy Croatia and Slovenia. There were 22 of us traveling for 3 weeks. The planning for the trip has taken about 18 months.

Marina Juras and Cromotion were our travel organisers for most of the tour. I worked closely with Marina to finalise the custom itinerary. Her knowledge and experience were invaluable, while her attention to detail and willingness to listen to our requests made the planning a painless experience.

Once we arrived in Croatia and until the tour was complete the professionalism of the Cromotion team was evident at every step. Our tour guide, Sanja, attended to all dealings with hotels, local guides and tour venues as necessary. She kept us informed of the timings of our tour programme and was willing to deal with changes that became necessary from time to time. Without such a an experienced guide, our tour would not have gone so smoothly and the inevitable glitches of such an enterprise would have become major crises to be overcome by the tour group. Marina and Sanja freed us to enjoy the tour without the difficulties of attending to the administration of the tour.

Our tour was amazing, and in no small measure was that due to the professional skills of the Cromotion team. If you wish to create a customised itinerary or just need help to book accommodation and travel arrangements in Croatia, get in touch with Marina and Cromotion. They will make your trip the success that you are hoping for.

We would happily use their services again.
