Overall, the tour offered a variety of things to do allowing for variations in the schedule for personal preferences. Our hosts, the Mujo family, were gracious; passionate about what they were doing and offering to us. In addition, the staff at the Villa was excellent in imparting quality information about the history of the area and of Croatia, providing delicious meals, conducting a cooking class.

The guide was excellent! The group was a perfect match! We knew no one before and all at the end! Extremely well structured while still having independence.
