Lovely but HUGELY CROWED
, Aug 2019
The group we toured with are lovely, kind helpful however the actual National Park is so packed the you can't enjoy yourself. Good luck taking a selfie the crowds are so big and continual that you can't stop to take a photo. I would avoid going here if you don't mind moving at 1m every 10secs with bodies brushing pass you.
Krka waterfalls is a lovely destination, quite busy in summer months and worthwhile getting away form the crowds onto one of the trails. Our actual trip ended up being a little chaotic, we felt the tour guide could have been clearer in her instructions as half of the group were waiting at a different venue to leave. That along with the guide thinking people were missing (who actually were not!), caused us to be over an hour waiting to leave. In addition, the bus driver lost his wallet and took several phone calls on his mobile while driving the bus back (no hands free at all!)
First off let me say our guide Rocco was awesome. So sweet and informative. The tour was pretty straight forward. Not really a tour they just drop you off at the opening of the park and you walk in and get about 3 hours of time to swim/eat etc and head back. One thing that really really really made the experience unpleasant was the bus ride. There was a lot of talk to AC but I am 100% sure there was no AC on the bus. It was miserably uncomfortably hot for a 2.5 hour bus ride. Not sure if other buses have better AC or if that’s just the expectation on buses here but def something to note.
I loved this tour! It was quite rainy the day we went to the waterfalls but cleared up after our arrival. This did not dampen our day at all and we still managed to squeeze in a swim which was amazingly refreshing. Our guide Darijo was excellent.. funny and so knowledgeable and an all round excellent guide.. he really added to the tour. I literally couldn't praise him enough! The waterfalls themselves are beautiful and well worth the visit plus you get ample free time to enjoy your packed lunch I strongly recommend you bring a packed lunch as there is very little there to buy and a swim as well and further exploring the forest surrounding the waterfall and the few little display areas around the shop. Definitely a tour a would recommend!
Beautiful place to visit. Trip ran smoothly from start to finish.
We met for 9.30am at the Gray Line trip office close to the Diocletian's cellars, where the group was greeted by the tour guide Gaby.
Upon the journey via coach to the national park, Gaby gave a very interesting overview of the history of Split itself, as well as Croatia and the geography of the national park.
We arrived at the park for around 11.30 and had several hours of free time to meander around Skradinski buk at our own pace, taking in all the wonderful sights and smells of the park. Being July, there were a lot of people there but as there was only one woodland trail to the waterfall, this didn't matter too much.
The waterfalls themselves are just wonderful nothing beats having the chance to swim in such a place. The rocks are quite slippy but take it easy and look around as you swim.
Note that the trip does not include entrance fees for the park, so you are essentially paying for the coach trip there and back.... you pay the tour guide whilst on the coach and she/he will purchase the tickets for you. They cost us around 250 kuna for x2 adults.
The group met back at the coach for 3.10pm for the journey back to Split, arriving in the town for 4.30pm.
Would recommend this trip to anyone seeking to get away from the hustle and bustle, and the heat of Split, beautiful place and smooth journey.
