Croatia is still excellent value for money, the hotel, drivers and excursions were first class the only downside was the coach which did not have sufficient leg room for overnight travel.

MRS SHEENA WATT, 1 year ago

The resort was first class.and the country is beautiful. Unfortunately the tour coach was appalling...uncomfortable seats...so close together that it was impossible to recline them. For a 31 hour journey Shearings should have provided a decent coach.. The two drivers were great and did their best.
