Amazing day trip
Oct. 2021 • Friends
A great day trip from split. Tour guide was excellent, and planned the trip well so we got to see the best of the waterfalls and lakes. Take raincoats if going in autumn!

Magical
A fantastic day trip. We received an email the day before with our info for travel, and were able to change our pick up point. We arrived there several minutes early and were immediately greeted by a rep from the company who explained to us what was happening. A clean and tidy Mercedes minibus then collected us all where we introduced to the fabulous Elena and lovely driver (Artur?) Whilst we had a lovely Croatian history as we drove through Split. Elena was funny, intuitive, attentive - but also gave us rest time too. She is an absolute credit to this company, the tour is a very long day and Elena made it so enjoyable and memorable. There is a comfort break half way, and the bus ride was a great opportunity to see other parts of Croatia. Everything was seamless throughout the whole day. Its goes without saying Plitvice Park was incredible, just gorgeous. It was stormy for most the day - its colder there than Split and the weather was totally different! So take layers and waterproofs as we did get cold. The lakes and waterfalls are astounding - the park was so quiet, and the waterfalls were really full of water! Smooth ride home. Only shame is we didn't go back to the gift shop which I had thought we would, so I missed getting a jumper as I wanted, and that there wasn't anytime to sit and enjoy the surroundings - but that's to be expected with a tour. I would highly recommend this informative yet friendly tour, particularly if you haven't visited before, as you have tips to see the best of the park, facilities and someone to answer questions.
Although it is listed, to be aware:
1. This fee doesn't include admission to the park - payable to tour guide in cash when you are picked up
2. It's a long bus ride (but very comfortable)
3. There's a reasonable amount of walking - nothing difficult but ongoing ambling for several hours

A MUST SEE!
Incredible trip. It’s completely worth the three hour trip both ways from Split.

A gorgeous national park. The day we went on it was raining and therefore there was a lot more water than in summer - so it’s actually better to not go in summer time (there was no queues too).

Loved the walk ways, the lakes, the waterfalls, the wildlife - just fascinating. I understand why it’s the main attraction in Croatia.

A MUST see no matter where you go in Croatia and especially from Split. The entrance fee is worth it and the restaurant does great food you get taken too after as well.

Our tour guide was called “Elena” and she was fantastic. Very knowledge and had a good sense of humour. The bus driver was also great but I don’t know his name unfortunately.

I would happily go again to this national park.

Don’t Use This Company!
Oct. 2021 • Solo
ZERO advance notification of details and how to prepare for this trip. I had to contact the company for departure details. They moved the time up 30 minutes. If I hadn’t asked for this info I would have missed the bus. NO attempt to help visitors prepare adequately for this journey. Had I know how enduring this would be I would have dressed accordingly. Furthermore, in the 8 hour roundtrip there was only ONE restroom stop. Very poorly organized and would NEVER use Sugaman again.

Simply Awesome
Sep. 2021
Lakes were awesome. We had Elena for a guide and she was simply fabulous. Very knowledgeable with a dry sense of humour. The tour was very well arranged as we were taken by a bus to the top of the lakes and start walking down. Be prepared though for a long bus ride, having said that, well worth it

Fantastic tour guide, fantastic tour! Would recommend!
Sep. 2021 • Couples
A trip to remember! It was really well organised and our tour guide was very knowledgable, we could just sit back and listen as everything else was taken care of. The journey is long but broken up with a coffee and snack stop off, it went really quickly. We would recommend!

Beautiful scenic national park
Sep. 2021 • Couples
Elena and the driver were lovely people. Elena is funny and very knowledgeable and I have had a tour of Plitvice from her twice now in a 4 year gap and both times were fabulous! She was more than happy to take photos for everyone’s memories. I would definitely recommend this trip with her as your guide :)

Wonderful guide, wonderful views, great day! I would highly recommend this tour, the bus ride is long buuut they fill some with information and then it’s a great time to relax and enjoy the views. We met some wonderful humans on our trip and our guide was very informative about the history and facts of the lakes and the country

The Beauty of Croatia on Display
Sep. 2021 • Couples
This trip gives you another beautiful side of Croatia. Different terrain and climate and so amazing. Just when you think the beauty of Croatia can’t get any better you discover Plitvice Lakes. The tour had easy pick up and a nice charter bus and the guide was excellent. It is a lot of walking and stairs so keep that in mind as you plan. It will also be cooler so dress appropriately. One of the Wonders of the World that you just don’t want to miss!
