Big Waterfall - 78 m high waterfall, the largest in one Croatia, caused by the flow of the creek Plitvica down the steep cliff, while the other falls are created by the flow of the Black and White river. Upper Lakes - a system of 12 lakes separated by travertine barriers. Kozjak - largest and deepest lake in the Plitvice National Park. Lower Lakes - a system of 4 lakes settled in the porous limestone canyon.
Our comfortable, air-conditioned mini-van or bus will pick you up at the pre-arranged location and head up through the countryside towards - the Plitvice Lakes. The unity and harmony of 16 lakes and their rare natural and cultural value is not famous only throughout Croatia, but also worldwide; earning this remarkable national park a coveted place on UNESCO's list of World Heritage sites. Arriving to Plitvice, we'll walk through these ancient woodlands led by our experienced guide. The path takes us first across Gornja Jezera (Upper Lakes), a system of 12 lakes separated by travertine barriers. Then it's time for a peaceful boat ride towards the second area called Donja Jezera (Lower Lakes), placed in a limestone canyon. Wherever you are in Pltivice it's easy to see why its travertine marble formations are such an extraordinary natural phenomenon. The barriers, sills and other forms created in these lakes, karst rivers and streams are stil an ongoing process that shapes the wonderful landscapes that make your walk through the park so enjoyable. It's these same travertine formations that have and are still creating the numerous magnificent waterfalls here. Over time, the water changes its course, leaving some barriers dry as it deposits new layers elsewhere. This constant evolution makes the Plitvice Lakesnever look the same. The best way to actually see this happening is when you are standing in front of the Big Waterfall, 78 meters high. The roaring thunder of the water as it hits the ground is unforgettable! Our journey ends with a tram ride. At the end, we suggest to use the opportunity to taste typical local dishes from this area in a local tavern (optional). After lunch we will drive back to Split along the highway, still excited and full of lasting impressions—make sure your camera has extra batteries!

Thanks for such a wonderful package. Amazing place to visit and thanks for providing us with efficient and friendly tour guide.
It was raining heavily and we were tossing up whether or not to go. We were so glad we did! We had a really great day! The falls were absolutely stunning, even in the rain, and the colour of the water was amazing! Our guide, Peter, was awesome! He was so entertaining, interesting and had such a positive attitude, he kept us all smiling throughout the tour and on the long drive there and back. Don't miss it!
Incredible place and excellent guide. Bus ride from Split was comfortable and a stop along the way helped. Unfortunately it absolutely poured rain while we were in the park, but the rain did make the waterfalls even more spectacular.
The guide was very helpful and friendly. The best part is as he was a student of tourism, he gave a broad view of croatia in general and made the tour very interesting. The pace of the walk through the lake was may be a little to fast but I think that can't be helped when you are in a group tour. Overall I am very much satisfied and will recommend this one for people who are not driving to Plitvice and want an alternative.
BEAUTIFUL AND AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!!
VERY WELL EDUCATED TOUR GUIDE PETAR!!!
AMAZING MAN, MADE TRIP VERY FUN AND ADVENTUROUS!
BEAUTIFUL ABSOLUTELY A MUST SEE IN CROATIA!!!!!
6 OUT OF 6 STARS, BEYOND WORDS, PRICELESS PHOTOS!
CANT WAIT TO RETURN :)
Absolutely excellent andour guide was brilliant I will certainly recommend this tour
Our trip to Plitvice lakes was very nice. We enjoyed the tour of the park and the guidance of Igor very much. We can recommend this trip to everyone.
Very professional service!
Thanks goes to Petar (tour guide for Plitvice Lakes) for being such a friendly guy, good in his work and knowledgeable about the place.
Amazing place to visit!
An excellent tour. Silvio was a fantastic guide who took care of his travellers. We had children and he was great with them. A brilliant tour would highly recommend it.
The tour was excellent, and even worth sitting on a bus for total 8 hours (approx.) The scenery was amazing, like paradise. Our guide could lead us through the huge crowds/queues without loosing anyone from the group as our trip was in the middle of the high-season.
If I have to find something negative about the whole trip that would the scented air-conditioning in the bus. But we were extremely grateful for the air-conditioning (even if it was scented) so no worries there.
Loved every moment of it. Went by myself but never felt it for a second! Great experience and would recommend it to anyone.
Our tour guide was absolutely amazing and extremely knowledgable. We had a great group of people and getting to be a part of a smaller group was a fantastic experience. Highly recommend this tour.
A great day out.
Great day at the Plitvice Lakes. Our guide was amazing and gave us lots of valuable tips. Even the price is not expensive if you count the long distance you would have to trip.
Superb. Informative and hilarious tour guide. Many opportunities to eat Croatian food. Stunning water falls. Well organised.
Tour was very well put together, and our guide was just fantastic. He was funny, happy, and taught us quite a few things about Croatia and Plitvice Lakes. I would recommend this tour to anyone looking at exploring this beautiful national park.
Very good trip ! And the guide (sorry I don´t remember his name)
was excellent !
Great tour with amazing views. I could have spent the entire day there. Highly recommended.
Simply awesome. Look no further when booking your tour to Plitvice. I went as a solo traveler and I had a blast. Informative, fun and most of all memorable!
We had a beautiful day and really enjoyed this tour.Split Excursions are the BEST! Very friendly, fun guide, and bus driver. Nice small group and the day could not have been better. Thank you so much. This was the most beautiful park and we WILL be back!
Fabulous Day Tour!
We loved our trip to Plitvice and would reccommend to others
Highly recommend this trip. if you only take one trip in Croatia, do this one. the guide was very knowledgeable and kept the pace around the Lakes just right; giving plenty of time to take photographs.
A bit of confusion with the meeting time for bus. We where told to be at meeting point for 7:45. When we got there the bus had just left. Appear the bus 'leaves' at 7:45 sharp (sometimes earlier) so be there for 7:30. This being said, the organizers got us on at taxi to catch up with the bus. Great tour with very knowledgeable guide. Long day but very enjoyable.
Silvio was very friendly, competent and funny guide. Would recommend to anyone!
I really appreciate the perfect people who are working on this company also the trip with this company was awesome. . Excellent. . Perfect. . As I'm from Saudi Arabia. I really looking forward to come again and use same this company for take a tour again. .. One more important. I would like to appreciate the people who help me about booking the transportation from split airport to split main city. . It was so nice from this company. . Thank you all
The driver and the guide were both very entertaining. The ride was comfortable and the local cuisine they took us to enjoy was delish. The lakes though were out of this world. The superior lakes are endless waterfalls and you then get to the lower lakes which has the most amazing water colour ever and some huge falls. A fantastic day out and a highlight of Croatia :-)
Our guide Peter and driver Timo were absolutely fabulous. The park itself is natures wonder. One has to be there to believe it. Combined with the knowledge of Peter and Timo the trip got very interesting. Just be prepare for long walks and some climbs in between. All on all i can say, if i return to Split i shall take another excursion from the same agency.
Great tour with fantastic driver and guide. Was a shame that it rained on us but was still breathtaking. Well worth the long drive.
The guide was very knowledgeable
Loved this trip. Wasn't just the lakes it self but the tour guide bus driver and how easy it was to book it. The information and guide to the lakes as well as around the lakes were fantastic. Loved the place were we went for dinner. It had the best food and wasn't badly priced. We went on a day that was raining and we were given the opportunity to buy ponchos and our guide went and got them for us which was fantastic. I would recommend this tour group to anyone I know that is going to the lakes. Thankyou so much for such a memorable day.
cannot say enough wonderful things about our guide ernest and the driver. it was a fabulous tour.
Great day trip! Our guide was amazing—friendly, knowledgeable, and kept up the spirit of the group despite bad weather. The restaurant the group stops at after the tour was good as well. Of course, it is a long journey to get there so bring a good book—you're going to be on the bus for awhile!
Had a wonderful time at plitvice. Contact with organization was excellent, even managed to squeeze two extra persons in the tour with just a days notice. Tour at plitvice was fantastic, best experience in Croatia thus far!
This tour was lovely. Ou guide Igor was very knowledgeable and friendly. And the park is just gorgeous!
This excursion is so attractive.
During the trip, our guide is very informative.
When we arrived there it was raining. But, we still get the beauty of Plitvice park.
The tour guide is really nice and friendly.
A wonderful experience, which was made memorable by the guide. Would recommend Split Excursions to everyone. Go for it!
Todo perfecto!! si van a Croacia tiene que ir a Plitvice y hacer la excursión con Split Excursions.
Si van en época de frío tienen que abrigarse mucho, con guantes, gorro, paraguas y piloto. Fundamental llevar botas de lluvia porque cualquier calzado traspasa el agua helada y es mucho peor para hacer el recorrido. Hicimos la excursión un 17 de Abril, nevaba y llovía. La temperatura es muy baja allá arriba.
My tour was in a rainning day. I suggest you to have raincoats and umbrelas with tour logo, to lent for all passengers.
Sylvia our guide was an excellent tour leader, very informative knowledgeable, humorous , good steady driver.
An unforgettable experience, a must see if in Croatia .
No word to say, just perfect
We had a fabulous time at the beautiful lakes. The bus ride did not even seem long because our guide kept us entertained with his extensive knowledge of Croatia's history. A must see!
Thank you for great time, this tour was one of my favorite experience while staying in Croatia. I'd definitely recommend you to anyone interested!
Fantastic Guide and Driver !! Loved the tour to Plivitce Lakes and the amount of time the tour spent exploring the area
I made the Plitvice lake tour on 16 th of july with my friend.
I had great expectations for the trip after seen the photos from the area,
and must say I was not disapointed at all ! The area was one of the most beautiful sceneries ever seen in the world . We had a great group with the ecxellent tour guide Petar ( in finnish " Pekka" ) . He knew a lot about Croatia and ab the area. I highly recommend this tour to everybody who is able to walk and enjoy the wiews !!
Plitvice lakes should definitely be on everyone's itinerary when visiting Croatia. We were so pleased that this trip was offered out of Split and it didn't disappoint, even though the day was unfortunately overcast. It is a beautiful and unique experience. And with Split Excursions, it was well organised, with good pre-trip communication and great guiding on the day by Silvio. The pricing compared favourably to what we paid elsewhere for other trips.
Would recommend participating this trip if you only have a limited time to visit Plitvice and can't take the public transportation/ don't want to rent a car. Trip was well organized and stayed on schedule. Only a strange thing was that you had to book it by giving your credit card details which is a process you shouldn't do anymore due to security reasons!
Plitvice was very beautiful but a little too crowded with tourists because of the high season (31th july).
Had a great day - guide was very personable and knowledgeable, and everything was very well organized. Plitvice Lakes is stunningly beautiful, definitely worth the trip.
The tour was amazing. To date, Plitvice Lakes is truly one of the most beautiful places I've seen in my life. The tour guide was very friendly and very knowledgeable. I already recommended this tour so many friends who have plans to visit Croatia. It was definitely worth the time and money. I miss Croatia!! Hvala! :)
We thoroughly enjoyed this day trip. The tour guide was very informative and friendly and the lakes were an amzing sight to see. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone visiting Croatia.
Plitvice Lakes is the most beautiful place we have ever seen. Our guide made sure that we were going to see and know it all. We could tell he enjoyed his time there as much as we did. We could not have picked a better tour or guide to spend our day. He chose an incredible restaurant for us to eat and made the long ride back to Split fun with singing and jokes. I will remember it forever. Thanks so much for the best day of our lives. Rob and Sue Linder
It was a great way to experience the park! Such a beautiful place!
We were very happy with the service provided from our initial contact with booking, the prompt response to our enquiries, the helpfulness of all office staff & the care afforded to us by our guide & bus driver. Our guide was delightful & very informative. It was a great tour & we were delighted to have the opportunity to enjoy it.
The guide was nice but I think he seemed a bit "tired" of doing the same thing all over again. We didn't stop at "the dramatic viewpoint above the charming village of Skradin on our way to Plitvice" even though it was said in the itinerary.
If you wanna buy some souvenirs from Plitvice, the only possibility is when the guide is picking up the tickets before getting into the national park.
When walking in the park, it's mostly "running" after the guide. Not much time to do photos or enjoy peacefully of the lakes. It's just fast walking all day. Anyway, I think I saw more than I would have if I had walked there alone for a day because the guide knew the best views and paths.
Plitvice is truly amazing, never before seen such turquoise water.
Plitvice Lakes is a breathtakingly beautiful place and well worth seeing. It really is exactly as the pictures show! The trip is quite expensive for anyone on a really tight budget but if you are coming to Croatia it is worth budgeting for it. Our guide Igor was helpful and very informative, giving us some insight into Croatian society, religion and politics during the bus journey. He also made sure we didn't get caught up in too many crowds during the visit to the lakes. The only reason for rating 'experience' 4 stars instead of 5 is because we were there in August, height of tourist season, therefore the lakes were very busy. Would recommend visiting outwith peak season if you are not constrained by school holidays. Split Excursions were helpful and professional to deal with at all times.
We absolutely loved it! We're so glad that we made time to do this tour! One of nature's real treasures!
One of the most beautiful places that I've visited! My brother went previously (without a booked tour) and it looked so breathtaking I had to see it for myself. Our guide was great as he took us through a different path than planned based on the volume of tourists that day and where we would get stuck waiting for transportation throughout the park. He also gave us some interesting history of Croatia and the places we were passing on the bus ride there, but there was not much for him to comment on once in the park, I suppose. It would be much cheaper to go to the park on your own and just pay the entrance fee, but I did not have a car and the bus schedules are not at convenient times to do just a day trip, so I had to settle for the price. Definitely worth a trip to this UNESCO World Heritage site!
Plitvice tour is worth the money and travel time. Extremely beautiful and great outdoor activity. Great experience! Split Excursion also went extra mile for us when booking the tour, great service.
Nothing to do with Split Excursions, but it was very crowded. Tour guide did his best to avoid the rush spots, which he succeeded very well considering, but still you were constantly on the move and hardly had the opportunity to stop and wonder.
Pack water and on sunny day a hat and/or other sun protection gear. The walking distance wasn't bad (but it is a walk), I have a bad knee and I managed well.
I would still do it again!
This was a great trip even if it was only 7 degrees. Earnest was a great guide with a good sense of humour.Food good at restaurant at the end if excursion. The only complaint was the lack of airconditioning in the small minibus. Windows fogged up and it was hard to see out.
The trip was good, plitvice was amazing, one of the most beautiful places i've ever seen. My only complaint was that the bus was late getting to the meeting point, and a small group of people were late getting to the meeting point so the bus left without them, but then stopped and waited almost 45 minutes for them. Those two delays caused us to get to the park almost an hour late, but we still left the park on schedule. The walk through the park felt very rushed in order to leave on time.
Great guide - very knowledgeable and entertaining! The trip is not designed to be terribly active as the board-walks are set out throughout the park but there was plenty of walking throughout the day. A really beautiful area and good to be guided through the nicest areas of the park. It's quite difficult to get to the park and stay locally via public transport, and if you only have a few days to visit, this tour is the perfect quick guide! We could have done with missing out the meal on the way back and spending an extra hour in the park to look in the caves and taking the walk a little slower.
Great trip, highly recommended. Stunning sights. Guide was great as well.
I LOVED VISITING PLITVICE! We had a great, passionate tour guide and a very wonderful group. Even though it was a very long day, it was one of the best days of my life.
This was a very enjoyable experience!
This was the first excursion we participated in while in Europe and it was definitely one of the most memorable. The park was absolutely stunning! We stopped at an authentic restaurant on the way back and it was delicious! I would highly this tour to anyone, it was truly an unforgettable day!! Nothing but good things to say.
One of the brilliant trips I had .very close to nature not much commercialisation of the place .lovely experience .
We had a fantastic time. Our guide Silvio was very knowledgeable and went out of his way to make sure we had a great day. Very enjoyable and would recommend to anyone.
Absolutely wonderful day. Views were so beautiful as they are in google pictures. Very international group in the bus and Ernest was perhaps the best guide ever. We really enjoyed and fully recommend this trip for all.
It was raininng so we couldn´t enjoy as much as we wanted the big waterfall
One of the most beautiful places we've ever been! Had a great time! Our tour guide was amazing! Thank you
A must go. The place is fantastic
it wasn't easy to find the location to get the vouchers - apart from that everything was great and would recommend it
The tour guide was excellent!
Went on excursion as part of our three month holiday to Europe. From making enquiries and then bookings on the internet to the trip itself we had first class service. Great communication and value. The lakes and surrounding park are amazing, and we would do it again in a blink. Our guide Ernie was outstanding. Overall one of our highlights and I would recommend without hesitation.
Despite the terrible weather, we had a great day! Special thanks to Ernest our guide, who brought a personal touch to the experience and to Tico our driver, who was as good as they come. Absolutely magnificent park! I loved it and I am telling all my friends to go. The small group makes all the difference, no more large buses for me! It's been 4 months and I still look at my videoclips and pictures.
Awesome. Thoroughly recommend this trip. Not to be missed, nature at its spectacular best.
Note however, there is quite a bit of walking up and down the valley, so a reasonable degree of fitness is required (for older people.) Guide was switched on, and the drive there and back was also quite an experience. (Speed limit... what speed limit?)
Mike and Christine
Ernest was an amazing guide, good sense of humor and very knowledgable!
Very well organized. Beautiful destination. Perhaps a bit too long of a stay at rest stations to/from Plitvice. Guide was exceptionally attentive and friendly.
Tour guide was fantastic experience to discover region, culture and history. Silvio`s professionalism and kindness is super!
This is an absolute must trip if you go anywhere in Croatia. The group was small enough to be able to enjoy it and get the chance to meet / speak to the others in the group. I would have hoped the trip to be slightly better organised, in terms of specifying meeting point and dropping point as it was not very clear from my experience, otherwise highly recommend this tour!
Ernest was an excellent guide who made for a great experience
they is areas that need impruvment specialy in comentry on the way and back from plitvice like explaining the area we going thrue thanks for asking will book othe tuars in the future with no hesetation
Excellent tour and guide.
A good day was had by all.
Ernest was awesome and we had a wonderful time! Especially enjoyed our trip to the tavern afterward where we sampled local craft beers and meats including lamb and cevapi. Thank you for a great experience!
We had a great day at The beautiful Plitvice lakes, the service we received from split excursions was great. Our guide was very knowledgable about Croatia & we learnt a lot!
I really loved this tour and was one of the highlights of my 5 week trip to Europe. Plitvice Lakes is truly a beautiful and remarkable place.
Split Excursions were a professional company and Silvio our guide was friendly, helpful and spoke excellent English.
I would highly recommend this tour to anyone thinking of going to the lakes...and although it is a long day from Split - you can see the park in a day and no real need to stay in the park overnight. I chose this tour above others as it gave more time in the park - around 4 hours...and that seemed to be enough. Thanks to Silvio and Split excursions for a really memorable day! Sally Watson, Australia
Plitvice Lakes is easily one of the most amazing and beautiful places we have ever seen! A trip here is highly recommended!!
The trip is less of a guided tour than led to believe. The company picks you up in a van, drives you to the park, coordinates purchase of tickets, and then walks around the park with you. There isn't really any "guiding" or educatio about the area to speak of. However, the company is very friendly and easy to work with, our guide was very personable, and the convenience of not needing to find our own way to the park made the trip well worth it!
It was well worth the trip. The Plitvice Lakes were absolutely amazing. I thought the guide did a great job in keeping us engaged (sorry, I believe his name was Ernesto). He was very knowledgeable and friendly and you can see that he really enjoyed his job as a tour guide. I would highly recommend this excursion to anyone.
The tour of Plitvice lakes was incredible. First of all, our guide Ernesto was the absolute best. He was fun, engaging, and very knowledgeable about the lakes. The tour was a highlight of our honeymoon and we are so happy we did it!!
An amazing tour. The national park was awesome!! :)
