“The trip to Croatia and Slovenia was fantastic! Every detail worked out by AE to perfection. 17 day trip through two countries, and not a single hiccup or disappointment. And my husband and I are very detail oriented and usually plan our own trips, and have very high expectations for everything. And I’m pleased to say that this company was exceptional every step of the planning and the delivery. This travel agent really listens to what you want and like, and plans a trip very catered to your personal desires. Our travel representatives were in touch  with us throughout the trip to check in that everything was going well, and always responded quickly when we wanted to make a change along the way.”

“Our trip to Croatia with a day trip to Bosnia was fantastic. We had some small hiccups with travel plans with a flight that was very late arriving to Split. Our travel agents didn’t bat an eye. They immediately got to work rearranging things for the trip to accommodate the unexpected late arrival. Our skipper and chef were both amazing. We appreciated how flexible the whole staff was in helping us make last minute tweaks to our sailing plans that seemed to work for us better once we got there. The islands are gorgeous. We had one small problem with an entrance fee to the Blue Caves and our agents solved it immediately. I always knew that if any issues came up, the staff was but a phone call away and that level of responsiveness gave us total peace of mind. Every driver/transport was exactly on time. Every person we interacted displayed the utmost in professionalism. I would highly recommend this company for any of your travel plans. Croatia is beautiful and we also enjoyed a day trip to Bosnia where we learned so much about the history of the area from our very informative guide. I really can’t say enough about what a perfect trip this was! My only warning, Croatia has a LOT of stairs!.”

We took a custom itinerary, 2 week  “Croatian Odyssey” this past May/June planned with Adriatic Experience.  From our first email exchange and phone conversation they listened to what we were looking for and made excellent suggestions.  They were prompt in replying and accommodating as we made decisions and even changed our minds a couple of times. 

We are very selective about hotels, preferring small luxury hotels with local character and personal service, our agency made excellent suggestions to us for this.  They are very knowledgeable about hotels, activities and restaurants throughout Croatia.  In advance of our trip  we were provided with a detailed custom itinerary for the arrangements we had agreed on, this itinerary included photos of and background on each of the cites we would be visiting as well as descriptions of the scheduled activities and hotel properties in addition to restaurant suggestions-very helpful.  The driver they arranged was the best, not only a safe driver but a knowledgeable and charming man.  In each city we had local guides for city tours and outings and these were excellent as well, knowledgeable, personable and accommodating.  Some highlights were Truffle hunting in Istria, sailing through the islands on a private catamaran, meals in Croatia’s finest restaurants and the extraordinary beauty of the Dalmatian Coast.   

I think this travel agency must be well regarded by hotels and restaurants in Croatia as we always seemed to get the best rooms or tables.  Our AE host stayed in touch with us during our trip, just to assure everything went smoothly, which it did.   I would highly recommend AE for planning individual/personalized travel in Slovenia and Croatia.   I would certainly use them again if we are fortunate enough to return to Croatia. “

“First day back at work, and I just wanted to say a massive thanks for making our holiday so memorable, we had a fantastic time and lots of fun. The villa was fantastic, and Duboka Bay and Milna were so beautiful.  Also nothing was too much trouble for you.”

“This was definitely one of the best trips we have been on and it was first class service from the planning phase through the actual trip.  Adriatic Experience was the best travel agency that we have ever worked with!  From the planning phase, which they had a large array of services and options; as well as being very transparent in what the trip would entail.  They created an itinerary for us that exhibited everything we would experience.  I have never had a travel agency handle the planning process so thoroughly and professionally.

Then there was the trip….  First class all the way around.  We had luxury cars waiting for us at every destination to take us to our hotel or villa.  Everything was planned by our AE host, we literally didn’t have to worry or think about anything.  We had only one small hiccup with the hotel that we stayed at, with the hotel granting us the wrong room and our host handled the situation to get us an unbelievable upgrade!  The hotel and the villa that the company booked for us were phenomenal; which met our expectations from what they showed us when we were booking the trip.  All the tours and day trips were excellent as well.  Highly recommend their sailing trips and wine tours!!!  

I can’t stress enough how great Adriatic Experience was to us and how I strongly recommend working with them.  While we were on vacation, we heard stories about other people’s bookings in the region that truly proved how fortunate we were to find these agents!

Thank you for making our trip one of the most memorable trips of our life and we hope to see you again!

“We had a fantastic week in Duboka Bay, which actually three generations enjoyed very much. This place is for people seeking peace and quiet luxury”.

Absolutely brilliant (holiday)! Happy to recommend yourself to friends for any future trips.  I know I definitely am up for the Photo Sail trip!

“We had a wonderful vacation, due to your suggestions and tweaks to the itinerary. Every time we made a change I could see the trip coming more and more together. It was great customizing a vacation to the family’s desires rather than having to go along on a generic tour.
— Family from MN, 2013

Whenever we needed a driver, whether it was on land or sea, he was there waiting for us. Whenever we called to change a time for a pickup or cancel a reservation it was done efficiently and happily.
— Group of friends, 2015

We couldn’t ask for better backup. Even though we have traveled often, all the concerns about vacationing in a foreign country were dispelled by your care. I would highly recommend your company to anyone interested in traveling to your beautiful country.

“Adriatic Experience is the best travel agency we have ever worked with!”

“Adriatic Experience planned the trip of a lifetime in Croatia for my husband’s 60th birthday.  The itinerary, attention to detail, the crew on board our lovely catamaran,
the food were all beyond our expectations.”


“[The trip] far exceeded my expectations. Extremely knowledgeable . . . each guide/driver/pretty much any one you interact with has been carefully chosen and coached by Adriatic Experience.”

“It is extremely helpful to be able to ask many questions and trust the answers you receive are based on years of experience.”

“Just when I thought you couldn’t be any more detail-oriented and thoughtful, you went and sent us this brilliant surprise!!! You are truly making this one of our most memorable vacations as a couple! THANK YOU.”
