"I went on the Bus2alps trip to Croatia and couldn't be happier I chose this company! The trip was well organized and the guides super knowledgeable about all the places we visited. The pre-organized activities like white water rafting and island hopping were a lot of fun, while still leaving us with enough time to explore the cities of Split and Trogir in our free time! The hostel we stayed at was super nice with a breakfast buffet already included and right in the center of town. I will definitely be traveling with Bus2alps again and would recommend their services to anyone studying abroad!!!" - Klara A.
