A second time working with Jen and Truly Croatia, and so happy we did! Jen created a private tour for 7 people with an itinerary including city tours, wine tasting, private boat in Hvar to swim and visit the Green and Blue caves, cooking class, and more. Entry fees were taken care of ahead of time. All accommodations were very nice 3 and 4-star hotels. Our drivers were friendly, professional and personable making the rood trip more enjoyable. Communication before, during and after our trip was great- including suggestions, any changes/updates, confirmation of arrivals, including the handy Trip Plans app for everyone to follow. Jen went above and beyond to recognize birthdays and anniversaries, as well as tracking down a forgotten item at a hotel and arranging its return. Our entire trip was very smooth and would highly recommend Truly Croatia tours.
Tina H. and family, September 2023
Our family of five adults just returned from a fabulous 12-day trip to Croatia (Split, Hvar, and Dubrovnik). We can’t say enough good things about Jen Radman of Truly Croatia who did an exceptional job of guiding us through the planning stage of this trip and providing support (with regular check ins) throughout our stay. She pays meticulous attention to details, is incredibly patient, and does her best to help create a memorable trip. Our transfers to various excursions and ferries went off seamlessly. The one time we encountered a potential problem, Jen jumped in and quickly found us a new driver so that there was no delay. Several of the excursions were outstanding (in part due to the high quality of the tour services she books).Croatia is a beautiful country with so much to offer travelers. Besides the terrific scenery and good food, highlights of our trip included truffle hunting, olive oil tasting, and oyster farming. Best of all, we enjoyed connecting to local people who were warm and welcoming. This was an unforgettable trip. Arrived home super late last night and we are already reminiscing in our jet-lagged state !
From beginning to end, our experience with Truly Croatia and Jen was positive, professional and exactly what we had hoped for. She listened to our feedback and curated a fantastic 2 weeks in Croatia for us and our adult children. Our love of culture, food and history was indulged and satisfied with the tours and experiences. All of the drivers and guides were personable and informative. When the weather didn’t cooperate with some of our activities, Jen was terrific and quick to respond. She checked in often on our travels and was accommodating when we wanted to make changes even after we arrived in Croatia. We commented to each other many times how great it was that we didn’t have to arrange for transport or activities while we traveled. Stress free! We recommend TrulyCroatia if you would like a seamless, fulfilling and relaxing vacation!
I came over to Croatia from the USA and have to say that Jen was absolutely incredible! As I was considering doing a sailing trip and some tours, she offered to jump on a call and was able to find something flexible due to some restrictions my travel had. She was not pushy at all and in the end we booked sailing, oyster/wine/olive oil tour, GOT tour, Bosnia tour, and the Plitvice lakes tour through her. The whole time she had everything organized in a super clear app and even put our separately purchased catamaran/ferry tickets into it so everything could easily be found in the same place. She was impressively communicative the whole time. I would 10/10 recommend working with her. I felt incredibly safe and cared for my whole time there and cannot thank her and her team enough! We had such an amazing time I'm sad writing this from back home as I wish I could have stayed. Rock solid person and organization! Thank you!!!
Jen was absolutely wonderful! I can’t say enough. She planned our trip from beginning to end and the partners she use for our tours were absolutely perfect! We got more out of Croatia than we ever would have on our own! We saw and met locals, had some of the absolute best food, and I cannot wait to come back! She checked in daily to make sure our plans meet ups we’re going smoothly. She double checked weather reports and checked opening/meeting times and locations so we didn’t have to worry or think about anything. We just saw the beautiful spots and enjoyed ourselves. I would use her over and over again. She was communicative and friendly and genuinely excited for us to have a good time. I cannot recommend her highly enough!
My husband and I have talked about a trip to Croatia since we met and finally decided to get serious about it a few months ago. We had heard such amazing things about the country, the culture, the beauty, food, islands, history, cities, etc. However, since our first discussions about the potential trip we had our second child, so now we had to figure out how to bring both children (2 and 10) as well as our mother. Ultimately we decided that two weeks, two children and Mom was too much for us to try to plan while working, so we started looking around for travel agencies and spoke to several before settling on TrulyCroatia. The reason we chose them is for one reason: Jen, the owner and our agent. She was instantly responsive from day one of planning. She wasn’t selling some package, but rather wanted to truly customize the trip based on our circumstances and input. I cannot stress enough how thorough she was in accommodating what we wanted, and in a two week summer vacation with kids, we wanted a lot. A dozen cities, private tours, nice hotels, history from knowledgeable guides, speedboats, great food, local experiences, Montenegro and Bosnia day trips, and by the way, make sure it is all accessible to ages 2 through 70, and throw in some one-on-one time for my husband and me. She not only delivered on every single aspect of the trip, she went above and beyond every single day we were in Croatia. Let me just give one example that illustrates her dedication to us: We forgot to bring our stroller. In our haste to get to the airport we simply left it behind by mistake. We tried to find one in the airport and looked on Google maps for baby stores in Zagreb while en route, but ultimately we contacted Jen and asked for advice. She said “No problem, I will buy a stroller and meet you at your hotel in Zagreb.” And she did, and also brought us a bottle of wine and snacks for the kids. I can’t express how much that kindness meant to us, and how much it eased our first days of the trip.The rest of the trip was simply phenomenal. Every good thing you’ve heard about the country is true, so book with Jen and TrulyCroatia if you want the trip of a lifetime.
This trip was perfect - thanks to Jennifer Radman at Truly Croatia Tours. With our input, she took care of every detail from a birthday cake for my son, to transfers, transportation, tours, hotels, everything! This was truly a vacation. My daughter says: "Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful trip! Couldn't have asked for a better time, each day better and better. Swimming in the sea, boating, eating lots of bread, with olive oil, wine, gelato and pizza - wouldn't have wanted to spend this time any other way!" My son says: "Amazing trip! Great food, boating, swimming, sunsets, and on and on... Could grow old catching oysters and making olive oil on these islands!"
We just returned from a wonderful week in Croatia with 12 of our friends. I was referred to Truly Croatia by a friend who had used them previously for a similar trip with a large group. We planned this trip with relatively short notice and Jen was excellent from the outset, offering us different dates and vessels to accommodate our group of 14. We booked “One Way Wonders” Dubrovnik to Split, on M/V Black Swan. She was responsive to questions and assisted with hotel options as well as transportation and excursions post-trip. Jen went above and beyond to ensure all of our needs/ special requests were met and communicated with us throughout the trip. We had a fantastic week despite less than desirable weather the first few days (very unusual for Croatia this time of year). I would highly recommend Truly Croatia!
Just wrapped up an amazing trip to Croatia! Only had a week of vacation time available and wanted to experience as much of the country as possible. Jen with TrulyCroatia Tours guided us towards a small-ship cruise itinerary hopping port to port from Split to Dubrovnik. It was a high-end, intimate experience by sea. Simply put, Jen nailed it! With only 7 days to work with, the cruise helped us take in scenery, food, history, culture and beaches. We packed a lot into the week but didn't feel tired afterwards. It was everything we love in a vacation: combination of sightseeing with some downtime to relax and enjoy the incredible environments a country has to offer.
