We want to thank the staff for a wonderful vacation. We come from the Big Apple and are used to exceptional service with the agencies we already know. This time we opted for a local agency and were very pleasantly surprised as they handled every detail with excellent service and made us feel almost like family. Thank you and your team so much. We'll be back in a year or two and will only go thru you to plan our vacation.
We heard lot about Croatia and this year we decided it is worth to visit. We found this agency and asked to put a package for us that would be something to remember. I can tell you one thing, we can be very difficult to please and ask for a lot, but they didn't disapoint us. We first wanted to rent a yacht for 2 weeks, but then we got a more interesting deal – first week on a sailing yacht with the skipper and the second week land destinations, national parks, beautiful cities, wineries, local farms, mountains, hiking...it was magical. There is so much more to Croatia, and we are very happy we discovered it. Our holidays were really amazing. Thank you, we will come again for sure.

This was our 4th trip to Croatia, but the first time with this agency. We were very pleased with them, they organized everything well. We have traveled many times with the big agencies, but what many of them lack is a good customer service. This was not the case here, these people were always available for all our questions, and even when we had some issues they were quick to resolve it. Highly recommended

My friend Sheri and I wanted to take a vacation in Europe and wanted to go somewhere off the beaten path. After some search on the internet we found Croatia, and found out from many travel blogs it was something to see. Zadar was our city of choice, since we heard it just got some prestige award for the best european destination. It really is a beautiful city, but we wanted to see more. As we walked down the street we were handed a postcard from this agency Gold Star Adventures and decided to give it a try since ther seemed to offer many interesting things. They took us to some great day trips around Zadar and we had a blast. I can honestly say Croatia is the most beautiful

I came to Croatia like every year with my family. This time we picked Zadar, but didnt really know what to see except Kornati that we heard so much about. We found this agency and they did a great effort to make plans for our staying. Kornati was beautiful as we expected, but there is so much more to see, we especially loved the mountains and the canyon where we went kayaking. Also tried some really good wines around Zadar. We had a wonderful time!!! Thank you Darko, it was really great. See you next summer
Here in Texas we do stuff big. So when we travel, especially outside USA we want a BIG thrill. My husband Tim told me his coworker just came back from vacation in a country called Croatia. To be honest, I've never even heard of it before, but after his advice I became excited when i googled it. I came across this company and they really did a great job. We were a bit suspicious at first, but when we got there, everything was in order just the way we wanted it. They took care of every detail of our trip, we had a great time. 5 stars for Gold Star, your the best!!!
Croatia was on my bucket list for a long time. I love travelling the world and have learned from past experiences that it is always better to hire a local to find the best deals and the most interesting stuff. I contacted this guy thru his website a few months before my trip. What really got me was the fact he was always available for me, quickly answering all my endless questions. Soon as i booked I knew I was in good hands. Everything there is so beautful, people are friendly and the food...OMG THE FOOD!!! This was by far the best vacation i had in a long time, and coming from someone who really travels a lot, that says a lot.
I have travelled extensively around Europe and can honestly say this was one of the best places I've visited. I've heard of the famous Pag Cheese, and since I have a soft spot for delicacies, I booked one of the wine and cheese tours around island Pag that this agency offered. I was amazed by the tour they made for me and my friends, it was perfect to the tiniest little detail. We tasted some truly amazing wines and olive oils, but what really impressed me was the Pag cheese. Oh, the taste of it, true perfection. After that we even decided to stay a while longer to see some more of this beautiful country and the guys from Gold Star were very helpful. To say i was impressed would be an understatement, they really made our staying something to remember. Thank you thank you THANK YOU!
They had a car and my "personal concierge" waiting for me at the airport, they planned all the itinerary ready for each day i planned to spend in the area, they were always available and above all helpful and kvery friendly. What more could one ask for? Thank you, Gold Star Adventures, you are the best!

For many years Turkey has been my family's favorite vacation spot, but we wanted a change and picked Croatia. I'm glad we did. Had a great time, seen many things thanks to Darko and his team who were so helpful and took us to amazing places. Plitvice lakes were unforgettable. Thank you
As a historian, I love the places with rich history and Croatia certainly falls in that category. Just about everywhere you go in this beautiful country you will find archaeological sites and a marvelous architecture. I wanted to see as many things possible so I contacted this agency that advertised custom made programs. They responded quickly with an exquisite offer - 3 day tour of the "Game of Thrones" filming locations. Started in medieval town of Sibenik and finished in Dubrovnik and I can honestly say this was the best tour I have ever had. This was my first time in Croatia, but I plan many more visits since there are almost daily flights from the UK, so i'ts an ideal spot to spend a weekend. Thank you Gold Star Adventures! ;-)
My vacation started bumpy with a cheap airline which ended up being neither cheap or worth the hassle. There are too many things to list so i'll just try to forget it. Good thing is that as I landed in Zagreb the rental car i ordered already waited for me. I drove to Zadar where I met a representative of the agency Gold Star Adventures who gave me new vouchers for the tours i booked cause i forgot mine at home. No fuss, no stress, no question asked, just a great customer service. These guys really put some extra effort to make there clients happy. It made me forget about the terrible flight experience and enjoy my holidays.

Most people in California are very laid back. I am not. I expect the highest level of service and want to be treated special if I'm spending my money on an organisation. Took a chance on a Croatian agency and I was not disappointed. They were spot on with everything they promised. Very pleased.
Andreas,, Stockholm, Sweden
My family and I usually spend our holidays in France, Germany or UK. My children wanted something different this year, so we decided to try Croatia since we heard that last it was voted the best place in Europe to visit. It seemed worth a try. We contacted Gold Star and they were very friendly and fast to set up our itinerary for the days we spend there. The tours we did were amazing and very well put together. My kids had a blast, and everyone we met was very kind and helpful. Croatia should be on your bucket list and Gold Star Adventures is the agency we absolutely recommend.

Redovito ljetujemo na Jadranu i do sada smo mislili da znamo sva mjesta, ali dečki iz Gold Stara su nas ugodno iznenadili. Kako nam je medeni mjesec, Darko iz agencije nam je složio tjedan koji ćemo sigurno pamtiti do kraja života. 3 dana jedrenja po Kornatima i Dugom otoku 4 dana nezaboravnog kampiranja uz malo aktivnije programe planinarenja i raftinga. Kako smo i muž i ja više sportski tipovi i veliki zaljubljenici u prirodu, ovo nam je bio idealan način za proslaviti medeni mjesec. Veliko hvala Darku i svoj ekipi iz Gold Star! Preporučujemo vas svim našim prijateljima!!!

I love Croatia and i always go on vacation there, mostly Istria or Hvar. This summer I was in Zadar fr the first time and i loved it. I love good wines and found this excursions to wineries around Zadar. You have some very good wines there, I loved the wineyards near Petrcane. Posip was my favorite. We had a great guide and spend some great time on our holidays. Will be bacl next year for sure.
Juli & Karl,, Herrsching, DE
We had such a wonderful time on our first ever sailing week. We have seen so many beautiful places and learned a lot from our skipper, Darko. Started in Sukosan, we did a tour around the islands and all the way to Trogir, which is simply amazing. All the places we visited were wonderful, but Trogir and island Solta left us speechless. We had some bad weather here and there, but altogether it was a week to remember. Now that we learned a thing or two about sailing, we can't wait for the next year. Thank you so much for a wonderful time. See you next summer!

This was my first time in Croatia. It has become somewhat popular in the UK so i decided to give it a try. I was very very pleasantly surprised, it was more than I could ever expect. The nature is breathtaking, people are very nice and local cuisine is delicious, the best i ever tasted. Lamb under "peka" (a traditional way of preparing food under a dome-shaped lid covered in charcoal) was so good it can not be described in words. I can tell you, Croats do know how to enjoy. I booked a one day tour to Plitvice and was amazed by the beauty of the lakes, it is without a doubt one of the most beautiful places I have seen in my life. Thank you for the wonderful experience.
