Thank you Sun Island Tours

Review for: Venice To Split

Thank you Sun Island Tours Just last week we returned from our 3 week holiday to Venice, Ljubliana (Slovenia) & Croatia. My husband has never really had the desire to travel to Europe and when I asked him if he wanted to go, he responded ‘not really, but you just tell me when & I will have my bag packed’. I was really worried what his thoughts were. Not only could I see that he was having a good time, he told me that it was a great family holiday. Having a background in the building industry, he was amazed with the buildings, the feature, textures and the construction of them. Still being a bit budget conscious, you recommended Hotel Malibran in Venice that was European 3 star. I wasn’t sure what that meant, but it was clean & comfortable. The breakfast was included and was enough to give us a great start to the day. We stayed approx. a 10 min walk from San Marco and I think it was a better location. Loved exploring the back alleys. Although we took up your recommendation of Ljubliana in Slovenia, this was the place I was concerned about. After now ticking this off my list I can only describe Ljubliana as a scene out a romantic move, stunning! Side note – I might have to revisit as we had a half pouring raining afternoon and I didn’t go on the funicular to the Castle. The half day tours to Lake Bled, Postojna cave & Predjama castle were perfect and just the right amount of time. City Hotel was close to the old town, great stay & yummy breakfast. From here we took the train to Zargreb (another experience that I would 100% recommend). Short stop in Zargreb before we went to Split via Plitvice Lakes. Plitvice is worth the visit. We booked a 7 night small boat cruise from Split to Dubrovnik. I loved every single port. The crew were great and the Cruise Director was kind enough to recommend some family friendly restaurants. A travel tip for your clients – they will do your washing on board and it is only approx. $30. A highlight for my daughter was the island of Vis and visiting the locations of were they filmed Mamma Mia 2. At the end of our trip we stayed 2 nights in Dubrovnik. Thank you for booking us into Hotel More! Spectacular in every way. Whilst there we enjoyed an afternoon at the cave bar watching the sunset for my daughter’s birthday. Probably the best day of my holiday. We can’t thank you enough for the fabulous family holiday that we have just had. Your staff looked after every detail and I’m looking forward to booking my next holiday with you.

I booked my last holiday

Review for: Wonders of Croatia & Slovenia

I booked my last holiday to Europe through Sun island tours and had them organise my itinerary in Slovenia and Croatia. We had excellent service in organising dates and quotes for flights and accommodation. We also had very clear and open lines of communication with Sun island tours throughout the trip. In Slovenia, we went on a day trip to Lake Bled and Postanja caves and had a fantastic and knowledgeable tour guide. A+++, would recommend, and I have already booked my next holiday with Sun Island tours.

Hey Rebecca, we're so glad Slovenia is getting the attention it deseves. For such a small country it packs a punch in terms of food, culture, and incredible sightseeing. It's so green too, with over 30% of the country being national park. We hope you enjoy the next trip as much as the last. Regards, The Sun Island Team

Fantastic, trustworthy company. I

Review for: Venice To Opatija

Fantastic, trustworthy company. I went to the UK for work in December and decided to visit Slovenia and Croatia afterwards. I had previously used Sun Island Tours to arrange my Malta, Greece and Cyprus holiday, and so happily used them again. They are lovely to deal with, generous with their time and reliable. Their destination knowledge is exceptional – they recommended lovely hotels in the perfect locations, and the best day tours. I also appreciated that they listened to my requests for mid-range accommodation and did not push expensive hotels on me. I had an amazing, tailor-made holiday visiting the Christmas markets and gorgeous villages and cities of Slovenia and Croatia. Thank you Sun Island Tours yet again for a wonderful holiday!

Reply from Sun Island Tours
Hi Britt, Thank you for your kind review. We are working hard to establish some of the lesser known destinations that you’ve already visited (like Cyprus and Slovenia), and we particularly feel like Slovenia is totally underappreciated. For such a tiny country, it has so much to offer, including some of the nicest and most welcoming people in all of Europe. We look forward to helping create your 3rd trip with us in the future, and thank you again for your time. Kind regards, Sun Island Tours Management
