Delightful experience! Highly recommended!
After reading reviews on trip advisor, we contacted Hrvoje to begin the planning. He responded quickly to all inquires in all phases of the planning. If you are looking for a trip that is active yet tailored to your interests and needs, he is exceptional!
He is passionate and knowledgeable about his country that makes the trip even more special. Though cycling trips are his primary focus, hiking, walking, swimming, and other related active pursuits are delivered with ease. He is very adapt at coaching you through challenging parts of the tour, e.g. HILLS…
And is always concerned with your enjoyment and safety. He made all arrangements of the trip utilizing and supporting local business and villages. This included visits to vineyards at our request that he sought out in advance. Both exceptional!Judith A. Zdobysz, Annapolis, Maryland, USA,
“Outstanding cycling in Samobor, Croatia”
Very professional from the outset. I contacted our guide Hrovje via e-mail. His response was prompt and informative. We e-mailed back and forth till we had a perfect day planned. The day started with coffee in the quaint square of Samobor, followed by a beautiful ride in the mountains and next to the river in the area surrounding Samobor.
He arranged an interesting tour of an ancient restored coal mine, provided us with an traditional miner’s pie as a snack. More cycling up in the mountains, then the most delicious midday meal, “domestic” food — starter of proscuitto, fresh bread, pickled onions, olives and best ever cream cheese, followed by duck/veal main course and studel for desert. Wine tasting and a sip of bermet completed the visit at the local restaurant and winery. More cycling in the picturesque mountains, back to Samobor for coffee in the square with a taste of traditional creme schnitte cake.
Hrvoje’s knowledge of the area and Croatia is excellent and he speaks fluent English. We were impressed with his attention to detail in every aspect of the tour, including e-mailing us photos after the tour. We would love to do a longer cycling tour ( for a few days) with him in the future. Truely memorable experienceMada Nestel, Bridgewater, Canada,
“A great way to explore Samobor – a Croatian treasure”
Brilliant tour with excellent views and first hand experience of the hills and country side of Samobor, Croatia. The tour was very adaptable to my fitness level and turned out to be a great challange and in the end a great accomplishment. The tour guide, Hrvoje is very friendly, extremely knowledgable of the towns surrounding areas and history, and also speaks excellent english.
He was in contact a few times before the tour and arranged a fantastic bike suitable to my interests and what i already ride. His knowledge of the area was very handy to have all the places pointed out and explained and we often took breaks to appreciated the amazing views. I learnt alot about Croatia but the best part was seeing the way of the Country people first hand.
Hard working and proud Croatians who were so welcoming. The homemade foods were amazing! Something very hard to come by when travelling through cities. Hrvoje also took many photos to make the tour even more memorable.The tour is very adaptable to your interests and fitness levels. We travelled across many different terrains and the whole time Hrvoje had different options on ways to travel based on how i was holding up. I highly recommend this to anyone of any age or fitness level. It is worth doing! Its the type of experience you keep with you.Tani Pavic, Brisbane, Australia,
“Beautiful views, great workout, with a nice tour guide!!”
Hrvoje was a fantastic tour guide. I’m not a cyclist and our one day 28 mile tour was a blast! It really helped to have someone local in Croatia assist us with recommendations and travel plans- he’s excellent and was a very important part in making our trip wonderful!
