Our trip to Croatia, and the entire peninsula, was fantastic, more so than we anticipated, thanks to your special knowledge and attention.  We can’t speak highly enough of Jauntee Travel Group.  And your driver deserves an additional thanks for careful driving.

We recently returned from our European trip including the week we booked through you in Croatia. We want to thank you very much for all the arrangements – they were excellent.

Dear Maya, I just wanted to thank you again for setting up my Croatia tour. It was wonderful. I loved the country and people. The history was fascinating, the landscape spectacular. And wonderful food and wine. Lots of great photos and memories. Everything went according to plan down to the last detail. And you delivered on all that you promised. I will most certainly recommend you if any friends or colleagues consider a Croatia trip. I am happy to provide specific feedback on any aspect of the trip if that would be helpful for you. Thanks again.

Filip – I’m sorry that it has taken this long for me to contact you regarding my trip to Croatia. Perhaps it is because I lack words to properly express how truly exceptional it was. It was such a personal journey for me to visit the place where my Grandparents were born and all I can say is that I wish my Mother could have been there in person, however, I did take pictures of her and her brother with me. Having a small group of people on the tour gave us the opportunity to get to know our driver and the tour director and have great discussions about the history of the country as well as knowing that we were in capable hands. I became very fond of both of them and cannot say enough good things about them each in a different way. He is a very patient and excellent driver and we felt so safe with him at the wheel and Mari was so good natured and helpful. Together they make a great team and we enjoyed them thoroughly. I have done some traveling but this trip was clearly very special in so many ways. I just simply do not have words to describe the feeling that I came away with. I think Croatia is now in my heart. It is a small country with so many natural resources. Great beauty, culture, food, and people.

I am so glad I made this trip.


- Denise Swan

Dear Filip We have just returned from our cruise and just wanted to say that it was excellent, and that all the transfers etc worked OK – the drivers were on time, had good vehicles and drove well. Regards

I just wanted to thank you for all your help arranging our trip to Croatia in May. We were very happy with the trip and would not hesitate to recommend it to any of our friends who may want to take a similar trip. May was a beautiful time to go as the temperatures were around 18-22 degrees each day and we had beautiful blue skies. It was lovely for touring around. Apparently they had a rainy spring this year and up to the week before we arrived the weather was still wet so we got really lucky!

- Chris M.

Flawless! Fabulous! We absolutely loved Croatia. You did an outstanding job in arranging everything and meeting — actually, exceeding — our expectations. We especially enjoyed our tour guides in Split and during our trip to Bosnia. The Hotel Amfora in Hvar was like paradise and the hotel Grand Villa Argentina in Dubrovnik was elegant and conveniently located. Thank you for your attentiveness to my need for details and for your professionalism in working together to plan such a memorable experience for our family. I’ve been raving about your country (and you!) to all of our friends since we returned, urging them to go see for themselves. Many thanks to you and all your colleagues.

Dear Maya,

We are back in SD . Great trip to Croatia. Thank you again for helping us organize it and I wanted to let you know that we had lots of fun and in my opinion it is one if the best trips I have taken .  R/Jack

We went on your Jewish Small Group Tour of Slovenia, Croatia and Bosnia at the end of August and we thoroughly enjoyed our trip.  From the moment our guide and the driver picked us up at the Ljubljana airport until they dropped us off at the Dubrovnik airport, our time in the Adriatic was magical. The old city centers were simply wonderful and even in Split and Dubrovnik, which are overrun with tourists, they were charming.  The gems for us were Plitvice Lakes and Bled; we had not expected such natural beauty outside of the coast.  The local guides, such in Bled and in Dubrovnik, were not only knowledgeable but were very pleasant, articulate and genuinely enthusiastic about their home towns.  We are so glad we went on this trip, and must thank Maya and Filip for setting up all the details for us.  In fact, we referred a friend who was going to Dubrovnik to set up a tour for her and her daughter.  We’re now setting our sights on Istria and will certainly call on Jauntee for the next trip!

- Bruce & Jane Miller

“Wow, what a wonderful tour! Our Croatia & Slovenia small group tour this June was absolutely fantastic! We have traveled extensively over the years, but this tour tops it all.  You guys at Jauntee need to expand to other destination so we can continue traveling with you and having such amazing trips.  Great hiking on Lake Bled and Plitvice Lakes, definitely worth every minute of the time spent there. All the hotels were charming and lovely.  Your driver is such a nice and helpful guy. And the tour director was very warm, personable, and knowledgeable.  She was always doing something special for us.  One day she took us to for lunch to her friend’s house in Samobor.  That was the most delicious meal with great company, and good wine, too! I think I never tasted a better meal in my life!  Zivjeli!”


- Dr. John P.

Jauntee helped me plan an quick value trip to Croatia 2 weeks before leaving. They arranged all the hotels in convenient locations with no problems. In Split, the room had a wonderful little balcony where we enjoyed the fireworks and the bounty from the local farmers market. Also, the extravagant flower show in the basement of the Diocletian’s Palace was gorgeous.
In Dubrovnik, our hotel was on t…he bus route with the Mediterranean across the street. Dubrovnik is a wonderful example of historical restoration. The old fort and the Mediterranean are fabulous. Also, I want to back and tour the islands that I missed like Korcula and Hvar.  On my next trip, would love to see the Plitvice Lakes National Park, and Varaždin.

We’ve just returned from our cruise. It was a wonderful adventure. The ship (Il Mare) and crew were terrific. Our guide, Martin, was extremely knowledge, funny and personable. Food on board was tasty and plentiful. Weather was perfect – sunny and 20 C everyday. Beautiful islands, incredible calm and turquoise seas. Pick up service to and from the cruise was on-time, clean and comfortable. Met lots of new friends on board.

Great vacation! We’ll recommend it to others.

Maya – what a wonderful trip – we so appreciate your help and all the great things you built into our vacation that will have lasting memories. Mariana was a big help too.

Thanks so much!

We just returned early this morning from Croatia. We had a fabulous trip!! Mariana, Damir and Zlatko were terrific and made our trip seamless – we viewed them as our guardian angels!! We were listening to a Croatian music CD this morning and miss it already. Thanks for making our family trip great.


- Rick Bralich

Hi Filip,

We arrived back late last night and wanted to let you know we had a fantastic trip. Your suggestions for activities, accommodations and sights were perfect. In hindsight, i think the itinerary was the perfect way to see a good orientation to your beautiful country. Thank you for all of your efforts. It was an amazing vacation. I thought you might be interested in getting some feedback on some of the specifics of our experience for use with future travelers. As I mentioned, ALL of the connections and logistical considerations were executed flawlessly. The Hotel Astoria in Zagreb is nicely newly renovated and is located within walking distance to everything. The front desk staff were great, especially when I needed some assistance with delayed luggage. A half day in Zagreb was perfect for getting a feel for the city and resting after the long flights. We were all rested and ready to go when the driver picked us up the following morning. Plitvice Lakes was lovely and I am very glad we asked to make it part of our itinerary. I must have taken 200 photos there alone. The drive from there to Split was about 3.5 hours and we were settled in the Hotel Park by 7:00. Enough time to unpack, enjoy a drink outside and walk down to the Riva for dinner. The Hotel Park’s rooms are fine; clean and functional. It looks like a recent investment in the lawn and patio area outside the hotel was a wise investment. It is a beautiful setting for a pre and after dinner drink as well as breakfast.

Choosing an evening walking tour in both Split and Dubrovnik were the right choices. The weather was very very hot and I don’t think we would have been able to enjoy the tour in the heat of the afternoon. The evening walking tour also gave us the chance to scope out places for drinks and dinner afterwards. Hvar was magical and I think I could retire there tomorrow. I am also thrilled we switched from the Hotel Riva to the Amfora. The Riva has more intimate charm that the Amfora but the use of the pool and the beach at the Amfora were ideal. It was nice to be able to get away from the hassle and bustle of the marina area too. The strolls to and from the hotel for dinner were easy and very pleasant. The hike and sailing trip were FANTASTIC. We were lucky to have a cloudy day for the hike which made the six hour hike more pleasurable. Our guide Vese (I think) was a delight and their whole operation seemed great. The sailing trip to Vis was also a ton of fun. Our skipper Ricardo was good fun and the sights and luncheon were truly memorable. He even extended out day and took us to a beach club called carpe diem beach club and then dropped us off at our hotel. A great great day. The 6:30 a.m. ferry from Hvar to Split came early but we were glad we did it because it allowed us to arrive in Dubrovnik around lunch time. We met up with the guide for another evening city tour followed by dinner. She was very good. (Have I mentioned we drank and ate a lot?). We wrapped up the tour with a guided tour around the walls then drinks and dinner in a square. We spoke with Mariana twice while in Dubrovnik. She was very very helpful and a pleasure to deal with. I am glad you provided us with a local contact. She also adjusted our transfer time to the Dubrovnik airport on the last day to allow us to get a bit of extra sleep. Sorry for the long email, but wanted to give you my thoughts before I forget them. As I said, it was a super trip and your work on our itinerary and the seemingly thousands of small logistical details ensured a care-free and very memorable trip. I will be thrilled to recommend you and Jauntee to others who are considering a Croatia trip.

All the best and thanks.

- John Roberts

Dearest Maya, We all want to thank you for making our vacation an unforgettable experience. Everything was so well planned, on time, smooth, interesting, and just great! Croatia is a wonderful country, and thank you for sharing a taste of it with us. Your choice of hotels, destinations and everything offered is unbeatable! Thanks again,

- Sofia, Roman & Inna

I just wanted to say “thanks, Maya” for all the preparation you did for our “Admiral Jimmy trip” to Croatia. We had a wonderful time—made so much better by your fantastic travel connections and hotels. Every transfer was “on time” or there before the stated time, each hotel was delightful, and, though the trip over and back is exhausting, all flight connections were made. We almost missed the Croatian Air flight on the way over due to a two hour delay in Washington/Dulles but when we arrived in Frankfort, the airlines folks met us as we left the plane, took us by bus to the Croatian Air check-in, got boarding passes and took us back to the steps of the plane for the flight to Split. All told, we were in Frankford less than 30 minutes and the airplane left the ground ten minutes after we boarded. But luggage made it all the way and back. We had a great sail and loved your native land, particularly the islands we saw which included Solta, St. Klement, Korcula, Vis, Sipan, and some others. Again—thank you for a very memorable vacation.


- Barbara & Chip Crumley

Dear Tom, I wanted to let you know that the Mediterranean Society’s trip to Croatia was a great success! Our flights to and from Croatia were uneventful and we arrived on time with our luggage. The hotels you chose for us were excellent. They were all in good locations and the rooms were nice. We especially liked the Hotel Niko in Zadar (our favorite), the Hotel Fontana in Trogir and the Hotel Scaletta in Pula. The food at the hotels ranged from good to excellent. The 40 passenger bus was very comfortable for traveling and the large windows in the bus were especially good for viewing the spectacular scenery and taking pictures. Our guide in Croatia, Branka, and our bus driver, Djani, are both wonderful and contributed greatly to the success of our trip. Branka is a very organized and caring person. She made sure that everything on the trip went smoothly. She would call to make sure the local guides were waiting when we arrived at our destinations and that the hotels were ready for us. She took care of any problems or issues immediately. On our bus rides, she would comment on the parts of the country we passed through and she even taught us some Croatian. She is a joy to work with. Thank you so much for choosing Branka to be our guide. She really made our trip smooth and enjoyable. Our bus driver, Djani, is also excellent. He is a good driver and was very helpful to some of the older people on the trip who needed assistance. Branka and Djani are a good team. Thank you for planning such a great trip!


- J.S.

Dear all at Jauntee — We would just like to thank you for organizing an amazing private tour of Croatia for us. Our driver Zlatko and our guide Mariana showed us the best of Croatia in a very unique way. Zlatko is an excellent driver and he took us to the so many charming places where most tourist never get the change to go. We’ve tasted the authentic Croatian specialties, had the access to the finest local dining, great boutique shops, galleries and great night life. We are so grateful to you that you arranged for them to stay with us throughout the entire trip. My favorite was the island tour of Hvar with a boat ride to Vis and the blue caves in Bisevo. I will never forget Croatia and will recommend it to friends and family, as well as travel services of Jauntee. Thank you!

- Michael V.

My fiancé and I have been planning our honeymoon in Croatia with the help of Maya, one of your staff. Throughout the process she has been tremendously helpful, and we were particularly impressed with her attention to exactly what we wanted. In any case, since Maya’s work for us was exceptional, I thought I’d let you know. We’ll definitely be recommending Jauntee to friends of ours who might also be making the trip to Croatia.

- DJ Manthripragada

Hi Maya,

Two weeks ago we have returned to Santiago (Chile) after a wonderful trip to Rome, Croatia and Prague. We stayed two weeks in the country of my parents. It was my sixth travel. After meeting my relatives in Zagreb and Omis, including a stay in Zadar, we had the Adriatic Breeze Cruise on the Adriatic Dalmatian coast, which was gorgeous. The ship Liberty is brand new, very comfortable (spacious cabins, sundeck and jacuzzi) and the biggest of the company. The crew is very friendly and efficient in their service. The food of the restaurant, mainly Croatian, is of high quality and abundant. The passengers, were nice people for talking, joking and exchange experience of life. The shuttle vehicle to take us to Split airport very early in the morning of September 17 arrived on time to pick us up. Many thanks.

Best Regards,

- Pedro & Marilu Pavlovic


We had an incredible time in Croatia!  What a beautiful place!  We could not have picked a better honeymoon destination for what we both wanted.  Thank you so much for all of your great help with the perfect honeymoon itinerary

Best Regards,

- Kevin Dunn

I loved everything! Thanks so much. Everything went so smoothe. I had the most fun in Hvar, Korcula and Mljet. I loved the small towns with a tour and being on the small yacht so much that we think we would like to vacation in the Mediteranean next summer also. Tom, please prepare a trip for us to Corsica and/or Sardinia with a small yacht or sail boat for 4-7 days. Our timing would probably be the same, leave NY Wed. June 27 and return leave Tuesday July 10. Let me know.


- Jan Riese

Hi Tom,

I just wanted to let you know that we are having an AMAZING time in Croatia! Everything has been fantastic – we have enjoyed the hotels, the tours, the food, and especially just being in a place as beautiful as Croatia.

Thank you so much for your help!

- Michelle Mirandon

Maya, just wanted to say thank you for a fabulous trip to Croatia.  Marijana was an amazing guide and I loved every minute in that beautiful country.  I hope to return next year.

Thank you for all you did to make it happen.


- Brigitte Nieland

Dear Maya,

Thank you for your help planning this amazing trip.  Croatia was so much more wonderful than I expected.

Marianna and Zlatko were absolutely first rate!  They were lovely, patient, knowledgeable and caring, and we felt great sadness in saying our goodbyes to them.

I hope to return to your beautiful country!  Meanwhile, many thanks for connecting us with Marianna.  She and Zlatko are top notch representatives for Jauntee.

Best regards,

- Gale Waldron

Dear Filip,

Thank you so much for planning our wonderful vacation.  We loved every minute.  The towns were lovely and atmospheric, the hotels were great, the sea clear and invigorating and the food fabulous.  I would go back in a heartbeat!

Mariana was charming–I couldn’t believe she drove all the way from Split to get us to our hotel in Dubrovnik.  Someone should give that woman a medal. (And please thank her again for us–she was very, very helpful).

Thanks again for a memorable trip–all due to your knowledge and hard work.


- Mary Gridley

Hi, Maya—

Now that we’re home I want to thank you for the wonderful work you did planning our itinerary in Croatia!  We loved it all—the country, the people, the scenery, the sights, the hotels!  You were right on everything you suggested.  We will definitely tell our friends all about Croatia and you.


- Ruth Keppler

Our trip was wonderful. Croatia is a beautiful country and the people are fabulous. The hotels you found for us were fabulous and I really appreciated you moving us from Amfora, the Ariana was sooo nice and we loved the massages.

We found a lovely beach in Palmizana and had a spectacular lunch at Zori. The rental car worked out perfectly and really appreciated the person awaiting our ferry. It gave us time to stop in Mali Ston, Marjorie and I both crave oysters so we tried them every way possible. Although I thought the best was the cake with the pasta we had at Bota, stonski makaruli, I have to find that recipe (in english). Feel free to send me a source or link. And the Excelsior was just wonderful, I am running out of words to describe.

I hope I can be sending you others in the near future. You really made our trip so easy that all we thought about was food and leisure activities!

Many thanks,

- Jill Kaplan

Hi there,

We are back from Croatia and had a wonderful time!  I just wanted to say thank you for all of your efforts — everything was perfectly planned and completely as advertised.  We really appreciate it!

Please feel free to use me as a reference.  I’d be more than happy to sing your praises and that of our trip.

Thanks again,

We have just returned from the Croatian Islands small group tour. Wow!  Where do we start to describe how awesome this trip was… Spending our summer vacation with a couple of our friends and other fellow travelers on this tour exceeded all of our expectations. There was eleven of us on this tour and we experienced so much through local sightseeing tours and learned about the country from our tour director and through meeting with friendly and warm local people, but we also had enough time to relax on the beach, browse the local markets and do some interesting shopping. The day spent on a sailing trip to Vis island was absolutely gorgeous. We are so glad we chose Jauntee for our trip to Croatia, everything was perfectly organized and everyone was so thoughtful.  Thank you Jauntee for a wonderful experience.

- Lauren & Edward B.

Thank you so much for two extraordinary weeks in Croatia, Slovenia, Bosnia & Montenegro! The Palette of the Adriatic tour was impeccable; our driver and tour director were fun and caring, the guides were very knowledgeable and interesting, hotels were luxurious with beautiful rooms and amazing views. We love art and enjoyed the visit to the galleries in Zagreb and Rovinj, as well as the tour of Istrian countryside and the great cooking class in Dubrovnik. The best part was that none of these activities were even on our itinerary. We got to see and do so much more than what was included on this tour. We will definitely recommend the luxury Palette of the Adriatic tour to all of our friends and family.

- Renee & Peter B.

Thank you so much for planning such a wonderful vacation in Slovenia and Croatia for our family!  We almost booked with Kensington, but I came across your site and made a phone call to your office.  Your agent Tom was a treasure of information.  We received your proposal in the same day and WOW, we could not believe that on a party of 6 we saved a total of $5,400 from what Kensington was offering us.  You gave us a better itinerary, upgraded our hotels and we cut on travel time with your destination knowledge. Your choice of activities made every member of our family happy and every single detail was taken care of.  We had 24 hour assistance to your office in Split and Zagreb, but we made only one single call on the last day, just to makes sure that someone would indeed answer. And of course, they did and were extremely courteous.  Everything was perfectly done and we had no need to contact anyone while traveling in both countries.  Your drivers spoke excellent English and were so knowledgeable.  Thank you for the complimentary day on the hidden beach with champagne, fruit, desert and other goodies.  That was so nice of you and we had a blast on a private beach!  We recommended you to the rest of our families and friends and will plan a trip to Spain next year with you, too!

We had the most amazing time.  Thank you to Jauntee and all involved.  We didn’t miss a beat.  Loved Mariana and our guide too.  Will never forget..our first ever cruise and guess who is hooked?  Our best holiday ever!  Going to be hard to top this one.

Need a holiday to recover from the holiday. Be in touch when I have sorted some photos.

We are still delighting in memories of our recent trip to Croatia and Slovenia.  We marvelled at the countries’ beauty and amazing history.    Thanks to you, we did so without a care; every arrangement went flawlessly.

Particularly we appreciated our driver Joseph and Nina, our day guide to Lake Bohinj.  His efficiency and insights into the country were treasures.  Her love of the area and her desire to share not just dates but culture made for an unforgettable day.

You listened well to our needs, for hotel selections were perfectly located, given our concerns about mobility issues.

we are grateful to you for creating the best possible experiences and for your careful planning and execution of a wonderful trip.

Jauntee arranged a fabulous tour for me and my 3 friends last September. When our flights were delayed many hours, the Jauntee rep was still waiting for us at the Zagreb airport to transfer us to our hotel. The hotel fed us a private five course meal, even though their dining room had closed. We were so appreciative after flying 22 hours. Our tour guide Jelena was a wonderful guide who became a friend.  Thank you Jauntee!

- Pamela Polzin

Jauntee helped me plan an quick value trip to Croatia 2 weeks before leaving.

We just returned from our honeymoon & must say WOW! Thank you for ALL of your support & assistance throughout the planning. The hotels were exceptional, the service was wonderful. From our driver in Split to the staff at the Hotel Bellevue, we were incredibly impressed. We had room upgrades & champagne at almost each stop. The half day sailing trip was delightful, each tour guide was very knowledgeable.
- Marie Cadice

We all thank you for making the arrangements for our Baskett group of 22! Everyone had a wonderful time. One of my nephews said he thought the trip would be great, but it was twice that great! Our visit in Prague went as planned. Beverly’s three and Andrew had a great time in Sweden. They all biked and camped on one of the islands. The Kourys enjoyed Italy, and got to hear the Pope speak while they were in Rome. Mariana did a great job, and worked with our schedule. The drivers were all good and took good care of us. We loved the hotel in Split—what views!  Thank you.


- Katie Baskett

The entire vacation was absolutely awesome and went smoothly and so much better
than we even dreamed. Our drivers were all young, handsome, intellligent & entertaining. In short, it was a trip of a lifetime.Every city was so charming & delightful and yet different from each other. The lakes were awesome with many gorgeous waterfalls and lots of road to hike.The entire trip was awesome, awesome!!!

- Gloria Aaron

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful vacation in Croatia. The experience was way above what we expected. The package was perfect. The hotel selections were exceptional and the drivers were on time and very polite. The country must be experienced. Pictures are nice, but don’t do justice for the beauty. We’re looking at a trip to Morocco & would like Jauntee to assist with those vacation plans. Thank you,

- Brian Rooks

I just wanted you to know that we had the time of our lives thanks to you, the wonderful driver, all the guides, and wonderful hotels we stayed in. We enjoyed everything we did and every place we stayed. It is a dream of mine to return one day to explore the islands, and I will certainly contact Jauntee. Most of all, your kindness, courtesy, and helpfulness was greatly appreciated by Rod and me.

- Bobbie & Rod Roeske

We took our family vacation to Croatia this summer and we had a blast!  Croatia was more than we ever expected and our kids  (ages 5, 11 and 17) had a great time.  We are an active family so Maya at Jauntee planned an active vacation for us including a lot of biking, river rafting, hiking, kayaking, snorkeling, and sailing.  We started in Venice and took a boat over to Rovinj.  Then we traveled along the Dalmatian coast all the way to Dubrovnik, and even took an excursion to St. Stefan in Montenegro.   Jauntee  organized a private yacht for our island hopping, and that was just  awesome!  We absolutely loved Hvar, Brac and Mljet, and we are so grateful that we found Jauntee.  Their agents have so much knowledge about Croatia, Italy and all of Europe — they all know the countries inside and out and we felt confident booking with them and traveling with them. They were also very friendly and had a lot of patience with us from the day we started planning our trip until we returned home from our vacation!  Their team in Croatia was amazing, too!  We already recommended Jauntee to many of our friends.

Just wanted to give you some feedback on our trip.

I’ve visited 70 countries, some solo, some as my own travel agent. I’ve used Kensington, Abercrombie & Kent, Viking, Windstar, National Geographic (Lindblad), etc. So I’d like to think I have a reference.

Everything was great – lodging, food recommendations, tours. Drivers always on  time. Vlado (Dubrovnik driver) may be the most interesting person I’ve ever meet. Please pass that along to his boss as it was like driving with a relative.

Nice balance of lodging, great location all of three spots, all different. Excellent food, really enjoyed Gariful in Hvar and that casual vegetarian spot in the old city in Dubrovnik. Wine was very good.

We did a great bike ride from Hvar to Star Grad…

Croatians were warmer than Rick Steves had written.

Again many thanks. Well worth the cost.


- Kent Derdivanis

This is just a note to convey my sincere thanks for a great trip.  Just reached home from our Croatia trip.   I am very appreciative and impressed by the quality, excellent and dependable service and gracious people.  Our Hvar trip went well.  Maybe we can see Vis next time.  I would love to go back.  We had perfect weather.

Again lots of thanks for your honest and kind assistance.

Beat regards,

We just returned from Slovenia and wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed the part of our trip that you organized.  All of the arrangements worked very well and we were most impressed with our driver and the various guides, as well as the magnificent scenery of the area.

Our driver, Mirja, was excellent.  She was flexible and agreeable, and made us feel like honored guests in her country.  She deserves a special commendation for picking us up at the hotel at 5:15 am so we could make a 7 am flight to Frankfurt.  We had Nikolas for a city tour and Nina for a tour of Lake Bled (which was absolutely gorgeous).  All of them were professional, pleasant, and very fluent in English, which made chatting with them that much more pleasant.

We had a wonderful time and appreciate your efforts to make that part of our trip comfortable and enjoyable.

Thanks again,

Hi Mariana!

Hello from Chicago!  Wanted to send you a quick email today to share a couple of photos from our trip.  Especially the picture of Sara staring at cats!  One of your favorites, yes?

We’ve been re-enjoying the trip as we’re organizing our pictures and sharing them with family and friends.  And wanted to let you know again how much we appreciated your excellent guidance, and how much we enjoyed spending time with you along the way.  Croatia should feel very proud that there are people like you who are helping visitors appreciate such a wonderful country.

Hope this finds you and your family well.

I am writing to let you know that our cruise aboard the Princess Aloha was better than I could ever have imagined, and you can feel comfortable promoting this ship to anyone. The remarkable crew went all out to make is comfortable, and the accommodations were just that…very comfy. One thing that surprised me was that I imagines the busier ports would be noisy at night, but because our berths were on lower level we never heard a thing. The was a perfect mix of sea time, port time, tour time, swim time etc.

Was not expecting four course lunches. It was quite a bit of food for us, but I realize they have to meet a variety of needs.

Croatia is worth every praise it receives…what a beautiful land and people. I fell in love with Bol and enjoyed our time at Krka national park tremendously. Loved Dubrovnik and the Rixos Libertas was excellent and just a pretty 15 min walk to old city.

Thank you for your help.


- Ann Gonzales

We planned our family vacation with Maya at Jauntee, and she was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. She knew every little detail about Croatia, Slovenia and Montenegro and that made our vacation planning so much easier and very affordable, too. Maya was very honest and provided us with such an amazing itinerary that our entire family of six (my husband and myself, and our four kids) enjoyed so much. The hotels she suggested were perfect with the most convenient locations, great views and friendly service. Our driver was adorable and very helpful. Our kids really enjoyed snorkeling and sailing on Brac and Hvar and sea kayaking around Dubrovnik. Jauntee provided us with the list of best local restaurants in each town we visited. That was so convenient and we absolutely loved the seafood there. Thank you Jauntee for being always so kind, friendly and patient with us. We are not the easiest travelers to please, but you exceeded our expectations and we will always remember our family vacation on the Adriatic! Best, Reshma and Raj P.

Hi Maya,

I just wanted to let you know that we had an absolutely amazing trip. We loved everything about Croatia. I think the highlight was the sailing trip to Vis, it was just a perfect day. And I have to compliment you on all the arrangements, we were very happy with all the hotels, and all of our drivers and guides were always on time and very pleasant. We were especially impressed with Marina, our guide in Dubrovnik, who was amazing. I am sure we will be going back to Croatia to see the things we missed!

If you ever need to use us as a reference please do. I will also be forwarding your name to friends who are now expressing an interest in going to Croatia after seeing the pictures I have been posting along the way!

Again, thank you so much.

Everything went really smoothly. Our driver and guides were wonderful. The land tour was great, as we really got to see a lot of Croatia. The bonus of Mostar, Boznia & Herzegovina was very insightful.
Hotels were spectacular. Especially the Mozart.

Even with the weather not co-operating on our cruise, we felt secure that the changes made in the itinerary were for our safety. The staff did a great job improvising.

Thank you for putting together a tour that really showed us what Croatia has to offer. Pre-history, Roman ruin, the Medieval walled cities, country side, lakes and forests, Croatia has a lot to offer.

Very friendly and welcoming. Thank you.

“The boat, the Adriatic Pearl, was way beyond what we had expected.  We’ve been on smaller ships, and figured the accommodations would be like what we had found in the past.  Wrong!  The room was spacious, well set up, enough storage space for what we wanted to unpack and good space under the bed for storing our extra case which we didn’t open on the ship.  The lighting was extra good – we’ve often found reading lights in Europe unsatisfactory, but both the Adriatic Pearl and the Uvala were excellent.  We had a sensational time”

Dear Maya,

We very much enjoyed our group of travelers on the small group tour of Croatia & Slovenia.  Our guides were accommodating and helpful and the hotels were wonderful.  We thanked you in our hearts and minds every day of the trip.  Also, we loved Croatia and Slovenia.  Once again, our heartfelt thanks and apologies for being so tardy in thanking you.  Sincerely, Nancy Anderson in Louisville, KY.

Filip… back last week from Croatia.  What a beautiful country!  The cruise on the Adriatic Pearl was great (weather, staff, guests, food, accomodations, etc), the Croation people were helpful and friendly.  The old coastal towns were very scenic and the lakes were spectacular.  We had a great time.  Thanks for your help in planning.

You did an amazing job coordinating and executing our trip. It was perfect. My family will always remember it and we are telling everyone we know to visit Croatia and Slovenia. Mariana on the phone was always there for us. Please use me for reference.

It was very moving to see the town where my grandfather was born. Hvala

Filip, Cathy and I have just returned from our seven weeks in the Balkans and Adriatic Coast and Italy. Your arrangements for the Balkans (Treasures of the Adriatic and the Adriatic Experience tour), and the Adriatic Coast were just perfect for us and helped to make our travel there one of our most memorable vacations ever!. The extra days you arranged at Hotel Lapad (Dubrovnik) and Bauer Pallido (Giudecca/Venice) were excellent. The weather was good with only a few dull or rainy days on our entire trip. Travel can be about location and timing and we had it all on this trip. Thanks ever so much!  With best regards, Leslie A. Kelly, Huntington Beach, CA

Dear Maya,

I just returned home last night. What more can I say except that my visit to Croatia and Slovenia was fantastic! Loved Croatia, especially Opatijia, the Lakes (I hiked up to Station 4!), and of course, Dubrovnik. All of the hotels were great.

The Tour Director, Kristjian T. was informative, knowledgeable, patient, and entertaining. Our Group was great – not one complainer – and lots of fun. We were so fortunate to have bright sunny weather all the way until we arrived in Zagreb. Light snow greeted us the 2nd day. I wish I had included an extra day in Dubrovnik and Zagreb as I didn’t have time to visit the shops you sent me nor to visit one or two of the many museums. All airline connections were on time; no lost baggage either.

I participated in all of the optional excursions except for the boat ride in Dubrovnik. All in all, the tour is well organized and offers good value for the price. I had a wonderful time and fulfilled my dream of visiting Croatia. I could live in Dubrovnik!

Thank you ever so much. If you receive any new itineraries in the future, please keep me on your mailing list. Warm regards,  Melvia

Thought I would write you a note to let you know how much we enjoyed our trip to Croatia.  We found the country to be very beautiful, the people are friendly, food is great.  All the local guides and drivers were excellent.

We had a great driver who escorted us throughout the country.  We came to think of him as our friend. We definitely needed his help in navigating a country we had never visited before. We will  recommend your company to all our friends who would like to see Croatia.

Also, we are thinking about another trip there ourselves!

Hi Filip- we got home late yesterday from our trip and just wanted to let you know what a great time we had- the itinerary you put together for us was great and we felt it was just about enough time in all the places. The trip was well organized and all our transfers  were on time. Croatia and Slovenia both have some amazingly beautiful places and we also had some great meals as well! We especially enjoyed the Istria area- visited Rovinj and some hill towns. We lucked out with great weather everywhere except a rainy last day in Zagreb too! All the hotels were great and the front desk personnel accommodating and helpful for the most part.

Thank again for coordinating such a memorable trip!!

Dear Maya,

I want to thank you for creating a wonderful tour for us. Everything went flawlessly. The upgrade to Hotel Dubrovnik made the stay in Zagreb special.

We especially appreciated our driver who picked us up at the Zagreb Airport ancontinued with us until we caught the cataraman at Split. I would like to send him a thank you message if you can send me his email address.

Just wanted to let you know our vacation was terrific!! We had a wonderful time and will highly recommend Jauntee to our friends.

We would also like to point out that our driver from Ljubljana to Zagreb and then to Split was outstanding. And both driver and guide for our Zagreb city tour was awesome.They made the tour even more enjoyable. Both were very professional, while being very pleasant and caring. They seemed to really enjoy showcasing their county.

Thank you and best regards,

Hi Filip!

I’m speaking for the 8 of us women who traveled with Jauntee Travel, September 10th – 16th.  We were thoroughly impressed with our driver.  His English was impeccable & personality & humor suited our group.  Only a “saint” could put up with the idiosyncrasies of 8 women.  He was prompt in picking us up and an excellent driver.

Thanks to you and Mya in answering our questions about the tour.  I would be happy to recommend Jauntee Travel to anyone interested in touring Croatia & Slovenia.

Hi Maya,

We just returned from Slovenia and wanted to tell you how much we enjoyed the trip that you organized.  All of the arrangements worked very well and we were most impressed with our driver and the various guides, as well as the magnificent scenery of the area.

Our driver, Mirja, was excellent.  She was flexible and agreeable, and made us feel like honored guests in her country.  She deserves a special commendation for picking us up at the hotel at 5:15 am so we could make a 7 am flight to Frankfurt.  We had Nikolas for a city tour and Nina for a tour of Lake Bled (which was absolutely gorgeous).  All of them were professional, pleasant, and very fluent in English, which made chatting with them that much more pleasant.

We had a wonderful time and appreciate your efforts to make that part of our trip comfortable and enjoyable.

Thanks again,

Hello Maya,

I know it has been several months since our wonderful trip to Croatia, but the memories have not faded.  For me it was a return to the place where my parents grew up, for our family it was finding our roots, and for our friends it was sharing our heritage.

Thank you so much and to all those that helped us along the way.  The guides ( now friends) that we found are still a part of our memories and happy family. We found our families after all these years! How wonderful is that! Maya, you made this happen for us and we truly appreciate what you did for all of us.

The trip was fabulous and we are and have already recommended you to our friends.  We are ready to book another trip with Jauntee!

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We have learned so much about Croatia, our families and ourselves.

Dear Filip,

We got back home this morning from our trip and I wanted to take a moment to write to you to say a huge thank you from my friends and I. Travelling through the Czech Republic, Croatia and Bosnia with a 6 month baby and on a tight schedule is an adventure to say the least. From hotels to transfers, ferries, tour guides and excursions, every little detail was planned to perfection. We have had the trip of a lifetime, in large part due to all your team’s efforts; from planning the itinerary to our satisfaction, at the best prices, and then onto all the on-ground arrangements in each city, everything was handled as planned. We didn’t meet tour operators, we were looked after by people who treated us like family. Our sincere thanks and gratitude.
