Is this trip right for you?
  • Croatia’s coast is very hilly and mountainous, meaning many steps are an inherent feature of the landscape. Also, stone streets become slippery when wet, so good walking shoes are recommended.
  • Summer temperatures can be extreme in Croatia (over 40°C), which can be uncomfortable. It’s important to use sun protection, wear layers to combat the heat and drink plenty of water. Please carefully consider the time of the year you wish to travel and your suitability to that season.

The Split to Dubrovnik Premium trip was excellent. Our group leader, Franjo, did a super job leading our group and as a native Croat, he provided great insight into the country along with making some wonderful restaurant recommendations. Croatia is a beautiful country and this trip hit all of the right notes.

We really enjoyed our Tour in Croatia. Loved the Old Towns and their connection with history. The people were so friendly. It was great to have only one other couple on the tour with us, and we were so lucky to have The Best Guide - Vladimir. He looked after us so well, it was more like travelling with a friend than a guide.
