“Jewels of Dalmatia”
- QLD, Australia Jun 2018 1 Helpful Vote

An excellent tour with a good group of like-minded travellers of a similar age, and an interesting itinerary. The hotels were mostly of a good standard as were the included meals - which catered adequately for me as a vegetarian. Our tour guide Petr did a good job of keeping us informed and the local guides were mostly very good and informative. With a group of sixteen we had plenty of space to spread out on the coach.

“Dalmatia Coast was more interesting and varied than expected”
- NSW, Australia May 2017 1 Helpful Vote

One negative, was lack of information about flight Options. Itinerary provided at last minute indicated only option via Heathrow which added almost a days flight time on both legs. As new Bunnik travellers we were not informed regarding alternative options. We were highly delighted with the tour and considered our tour guide instrumental in achieving a really positive experience. A great time had by all.

The Bunnik 'Jewels of Dalmatia' tour was very enjoyable. It was well organised and the itinerary covered a range of very interesting places and fantastic scenery.

Although the tour group had the...read more
