“Portal Agency Trogir- Plitvice Lakes & Dubrovnik”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

Our experience of Portal excursions was excellent. We booked through the office in Trogir the day we arrived in Croatia, they were very friendly and helpful- the nicest out of all the travel agency offices we visited.
We decided to go to Plitvice Lakes and then Dubrovnik a few days later.
Our driver (and guide at Plitvice) for both trips was Andrija. He was excellent, very friendly and a careful driver. He is very knowledgeable about Croatia and we enjoyed chatting to him on the way to Dubrovnik.
We thought the excursions were good value, and the stop off points were interesting.
These were two of our favourite days in Croatia.

“Great Experience with Split Excursions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

Split Excursions is a first rate tour agency in many regards. First, they are very professional. I reserved a couple of Day Tours (Hvar/Blue Cave) on-line and they responded almost immediately with confirmation and suggestions of what to bring. Second, they really do look out for their guests' best interests. Once I got to the tour office in Split, Nivas handled my reservations. She called the pilot of the boat going to Hvar to ask for the day with the best weather. So she rearranged the days for the trip to Hvar/Blue Cave to ensure the probably of fair weather. Third, they hire safe drivers and excellent local tour guides. They were all extremely knowledgeable. Fourth, they are flexible and will work with you to get the desired tours on the desired dates when possible. They were able to arrange a Day Tour to Dubrovnik, which was not originally scheduled. They got enough interest in a trip, and so I was able to go to Dubrovnik, which was an unexpected surprise. Lastly, they are a group of really nice and caring people who are sincere in trying to please their guests in Croatia. I took 5 tours with Split Excursions and was quite pleased with each one [Group tours to Hvar/Blue Cave, Plitvice Lakes, Dubrovnik; Private tours of Diocletian's Palace and Trogir].

“A really lovely day!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 19, 2013

Out of six of us we had two 4/5, two 4.5/5 and two 5/5 - overall it was the nicest day we spent out of our whole time so far in Croatia. We want to give it 4.5 stars!

The weather was brilliant, the boat and our skipper Dado couldn't have been nicer, and our lunch at Zori, Palmizana was memorable! The young lady at Portal Tours was exemplary. Just DO IT! However, you could easily do without the guided tour in Hvar.

If any of our Trip Advisor community would like any more information about this wonderful day at Brac, Hvar and Palmizana please feel free to contact me.

“A great day out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

We went on the Blue Caves & Hvar day trip. The trip was on a speedboat with 8 others and the skipper; it was quite bumpy but as expected for this method of transport. It takes around 2 hours to get to the first stop but there are plenty of views to take in on your way there.

The first stop at the blue cave was busy but well worth seeing the brilliant blue glow from the water. We then proceeded to the fishing village of Komiža, which was so quiet and picturesque it seemed a shame to leave. We also were given our lunch packet here which was a good sized sandwich and some extras. Next was Stiniva bay which required swimming in a boats cannot reach the shore, it is an amazing experience. We were given a bit of time for relaxing and sunning here. After the bay we did a visit of the green cave, which I don’t think we saw at the optimum time as it lacked the lustre of the blue cave. No matter, as our proactive skipper altered the itinerary and took us to a wonderful sandy beach, which we shared with no one, it was truly fantastic.

Hvar was pleasant to walk around and we had enough time for dinner and a drink with fellow excursionists on the seafront before the journey home. The journey back was quite rough and at times taxing on the spine due to the jolting waves caused by the winds in the afternoon, but other than that we had a impeccable and memorable day.

“An amazing day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

We did the day trip by speedboat to Hvar and Pakleni islands and it is a day we will never forget- exceptionally well organised with local guides who were brilliant and passionate about Hvar.Unlike most tours,this was at a leisurely pace with heaps of free time to sight see and later swim at Pakleni. The office staff were also great and explained in detail your needs for the day. A word on the return journey,it is not for the faint hearted and when they say bring a sprayjacket,Listen to them! Even the lunch provided was good.
