“Fresco painting workshop”

Gral Putovanja - Day Tours
Reviewed September 30, 2013

My partner and I had an absolutely fantastic time at the fresco painting workshop in Roc! Hari the painter could not have been more accommodating or welcoming and with his help, my partner and created some pretty lovely souvenirs (even though neither of us have much artistic talent. .) whilst learning loads about frescoes; their hayday; the town of Roc and Istria/Croatia in general! If you're looking for a fun, interesting and different way to spend an afternoon in Istria, this is it!

Going on a hot air balloon ride with Ivana and company was one of the BEST decision of our trip. We witnessed breathtaking views of Istria and the beautiful sunset during our evening ride, a unique experience and viewpoint which we don’t think any other tours would be able to rival. The team was extremely passionate about hot air ballooning and was constantly engaging us throughout. They were some of the best people; sincere, friendly and fun-loving, we met during out trip, and more often than not, its the people who make the experience a worthwhile one.

The tour comprised of the set-up of the hot-air balloon (fascinating to watch), the ascent (so smooth-sailing that we didn’t even realised we were off the ground), the cruising (lovely beyond words), the descent (exciting to the max!), packing up (thank goodness for the muscular men), little ceremony and champagne (a real surprise and very kitchsy!), and last some drinks at a local cafe where we were presented our certificates and got to interact with the team (yes you get a cert for it!). We couldn’t bear to leave. Big thanks to Ivana for this unforgettable experience!

If you would ever to visit Istria, I urge you to go to the lovely hill-top village Motovun and arrange for a hot-air balloon ride with Gral Putovanja (Ivana was extremely prompt and helpful in the correspondences prior the ride). You won’t regret it!

After a long consideration and planing, my friend and I decided to book a balloon flight over Istria. Finally, all conditions were fulfilled: an existence of a balloon flight in Istria, enough time, money... She did all the communication with Gral Putovanja, and everything was like arranged: time, place, very professional. I didn't think a lot about it in advance, I had no expectations or fears of flying in a basket... A young team of Gral left no place for any doubts: everything was perfect, including a pilot, a flight itself, a ceremony after a flight ... Something that will never be forgotten!
