We need your feedback in order to provide the best possible service to our guests.
We believe that tips should reflect good service and your satisfaction with the guide. Therefore with the overall tour. If you feel your guides did an outstanding job and you would like to reward them for their efforts, we suggest tipping them. Tipping is voluntary and completely at the discretion of individual trip participants. Your own currency or Croatian Kuna is acceptable. Usually, group members put all gratuities in an envelope and present it to the guides during dinner on the final evening of the trip.
