Fantastic Holiday to Venice, Croatia and Lake Garda

We have just got back from this trip and had a brilliant time. Ian, one of our drivers, was very knowledgeable on the area. As this was the first time Shearing's has run this trip there were a few slight alterations to the itinerary, however all went completely smoothly. We were treated very well by the staff in the hotels we stayed in and enjoyed all the included trips especially the excursion to the Plitvice Lakes - it had snowed the night before making it especially beautiful.
