"Having been on the Island of Krk Tour a couple of years ago, we agreed that we wanted to explore more of Croatia. The Dubrovnik and the Dalmatian Coast tour appealed to us, as it has a great itinerary visiting new and interesting places. We had a seamless journey from our joining point to Stop 24 Services, Folkestone, to where we joined our tour coach. This is when we met our tour drivers John and Tony.

John and Tony immediately made everyone welcome and before we knew it, we were chatting to fellow travellers looking forward to our holiday ahead.

Whilst on the holiday we saw absolutely stunning scenery and interesting architecture, taking many photographs to remind us of our fantastic tour. The tour guides used were always very informative on their talks, which made our excursions all the more interesting.

When we visited Dubrovnik in our free time we took a ride on the cable car and a walk around the wall. Seeing the medieval town from different heights and locations was truly memorable.

Krka National Park and Plitvice Lakes National Park were breathe taking. Mostar, Korcula, Montenegro, Split, Trogir and Optatija are all beautiful places to visit, no doubt at some point we will return.

On this tour we travelled through no less than 10 countries, stayed at 8 hotels and had an overnight ferry from Italy to Croatia. The hotels were a good quality and offered a varied selection of food. John and Tony were superb drivers, nothing was too much trouble for them.

To date, in our opinion this is our best Leger holiday yet!

"We chose this holiday because we had never been to this area before and we thought the itinerary was perfect for us, especially as we could travel Silver Service which we knew, from past experience, was extremely comfortable.

After a very scenic journey through France, Germany and Switzerland we had a pleasant overnight stay in Cremona. We stayed in a very nice hotel and had a few hours free to explore this elegant town; famous for violin making (we have 4 violinists in the family), before travelling to Ancona the following morning for the ferry to Split.

En route to Dubrovnik we were taken to Mostar and had a very interesting guided tour of the town which has been re- built and is now a flourishing after the conflicts of the 1990s. The Turkish house and Muslim mosque were both included in this tour.

Dubrovnik did not disappoint in any way! After the guided tour we had plenty of free time to explore this lovely medieval town and had a very nice lunch sitting outside in the warm air.

The optional excursions to Korcula and Kotor were both excellent with fascinating narrow streets and squares and again, the guided tours of these old towns were interesting and informative.

Split was a another great experience - this fascinating place with the Palace of Diocletian and a highlight of a Capella group waiting to sing for us. By complete contrast we were taken next to the lovely Krka National Park with its woods and waterfalls and plenty of time to walk around and enjoy the scenery.

The fortified town of Zadar was a real highlight with the unique sea organ, the wonderful sunset which we were taken to see and the solar lights on the promenade. Why had we never heard of Zadar? It is a real gem with an interesting history.

Plitvice Lakes National Park is also truly magnificent with its 16 lakes and many spectacular waterfalls. It rained the day we were there but this was something of a bonus, as there was a lot of water cascading down which added to the overall impact. There is a long walk in this national park but it is very well worth the effort.

Our last day in Croatia was in the attractive resort of Opatija where we had a free day to walk along the sea front and around the the Botanical Gardens before finding the indoor market and using our remaining kuna. 

The journey home can be something of an anti-climax after such an interesting and enjoyable holiday but this was not the case on this trip, as we were driven through some wonderful scenery in Slovenia and Austria, had a very nice overnight stop in Niederau and then another memorable lunch in Kork Germany, where we were lucky enough to see a stork on her nest.

This was a memorable holiday for all the right reasons and the experience much enhanced by the very helpful and very pleasant drivers, Paul and Simon. Paul has made this trip many times and was a mine of information and local knowledge and they were both always on hand to give help and advice with good humour.

We also had some exceptionally good guides on this trip who were able to combine facts with humour and who added greatly to the overall enjoyment. 

We have travelled with Leger in the past and have already booked a holiday for 2016. We are taking a friend with us on the next trip - she is coming on our recommendation and we know she won't be disappointed. All the hotels we stayed in were good and the pace of the holiday suited us perfectly, as the long journeys were broken up with leisurely stops in towns on the way or coffee/ lunch stops.

In conclusion, we consider this holiday to be exceptional value for money .
