Northern Croatia: The Istrian Riviera & Zagreb

First visit to Croatia, we loved it all and will return. Our tour guide Tihana was great. Her knowledge of her country and all her recommendations were first rate and given with much humour which made our holiday a very enjoyable one. The Sheraton hotel Zagreb deservedly has 5 stars and is what you expect from Riviera Travel.

Giorgio 11 in Opatija did not quite have Riviera’s usual feel about it and just missed the mark in the dining room, very noisy and busy not a relaxing experience but If you managed to get a table on the balcony over looking the sea it was great nothing better, which we did this 2 evenings. The bedrooms were comfortable and large.

Overall a great holiday and we would recommend it.

Northern Croatia: The Istrian Riviera & Zagreb

Brilliant holiday! Our Tour Manager Tihana was exceptional and went out of her way to look after us all and make sure everything went well. Her knowledge of Croatia and its history and also her knowledge generally was very impressive indeed. Also her humour and warmth.

To stay at the Sheraton in Zagreb was a plus and the city tour was excellent.

We have been to other parts of Croatia previously and chose this holiday as it visited the Plitvice Lakes. We had visited the lakes on a previous holiday but the weather had not been good so chose this holiday in order to see them again and they did not disappoint! A wonderful experience. The Istrian Riviera where we stayed for the latter part of the holiday was also lovely - especially the island cruise and Opatija - we were able to walk there and back again along the coastal path.

If there is to be a slight 'moan' it would only be that it was rather busy with early morning starts. Perhaps when we got to the Saturday Pula with perhaps just Rovynj OR Porec may have been enough with a view to returning earlier to the hotel for the last evening. Other than that, all EXCELLENT thank you.

Northern Croatia: The Istrian Riviera & Zagreb

We throughly enjoyed our time in Croatia, Zagreb was bustling and interesting, Icici was more relaxing.

Dubrovnik Hotel in Zagreb was nice and in a superb central location, Giorgio hotel also in a beautiful location just slightly spoilt by the dining experience which was very noisy and busy!

Our guide Thiana was a credit to Riviera, professional, kind, caring and very interesting.

This was an excellent holiday staying in very good hotels, the one in Zagreb was exceptional. The itinerary was fascinating.

I would like to thank Jelena the Riviera Travel guide who was very professional in her role and a great ambassador for Croatia.
