The tour was fabulous. All the hotels were lovely. We were met by representatives as soon as we got off our flight, catamaran et al. All the transportation between destinations was faultless. It was just lovely.

The only change we would have made is one more day in Hvar and one less in Split (we arrived in Split on Wednesday and left Saturday because of flights).
