Later, meet up with your guide again and stroll through the forest or choose to go on a train ride (at own expense) through the forest to get a different vantage point of the breathtaking nature. 

Then head back to the comfortable vehicle and relax on the ride back to Dubrovnik where you'll be dropped off at you hotel.

If you don't have the time to spend a few nights up by Plitvice Lakes, and have no other option - that this is a good way to pack in this day trip. It's a long trip about 5 hours each way, and you'll spend about 4 hours hiking through the lakes totally worth it!. Our driver was nice, and efficient - and a bit speedy even got a speeding ticket on the way there. It's basically a driving service, he's not a tour guide, did not come into the park with us, nor had been there before!

The private transfer was a pleasant surprise as we weren't expecting such a personal service. We got on the car and as we were approaching the Park, it started raining really heavily. We asked the driver for advice and all he could say is that he doesn't recommend continue going, it was just a little disappointing as he also mentioned that he had a different car so all the usual equipment like umbrellas were not going to be provided like they normally would. The day went on fine as we explored the Park on our own, but I think this tour is just a chauffeur service instead...
