Private Grand Tour of Croatia

offers the perfect mixture of the Mediterranean, Central Europe and the Balkans with rich history, culture and immense natural beauty.

The first thing which comes to our mind is undoubtedly the Dalmatian Coast with many islands. The most famous is Hvar with its turquoise sea, terracotta roofs, mild climate, surrounded by olive trees, lavender fields and lots of sunshine. The National Park Plitvice with the waterfalls. 

Croatia is a paradise for sailors (with many perfectly equipped marines) and scuba divers (with many dive bases). It is also a paradise for history-enthusiasts for its numerous fortresses and port cities (such as Split, Dubrovnik). And not to forget the healthy mediterranean food – fish and delicacies such as Pag Cheese / Paski sir, made from sheep’s milk, has a distinctively salty taste, reminiscent of its nautical home.

Many epic scenes from Game of Thrones were filmed here: in Dubrovnik, Split and in Trsteno (if you’re GoT fan..).The list could go on. We all love Croatia.

Croatia, officially the Republic of Croatia, in Croatian simply Hrvatska is a country located at the intersections of Central and Southern Europe with borders to Slovenia (northwest), Hungary (northeast), Serbia (east), Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro (southeast) and shares a maritime border with Italy (west, southwest). The capital and the largest city is Zagreb.

Our top Guide-drivers are from our travel team. We have visited every region and have in-depth knowledge of Croatian history, art, architecture, culture, communist Yugoslavia as well as present-day Croatia. We offer high-end private tours (shorter, longer, even 18-20 day long) with focus on exceptional quality – of our guide-drivers, local tour guides, 4 and 5 star carefully chosen hotels as well as the transportation using our Mercedes Benz V class vans.

Built by the Roman emperor Diocletian in 305 AD. Walking through the narrow streets, squares, see churches. Although, it was called a palace, in reality, it was more like a big fortress surrounded by the walls and towers. Sights such as the Cathedral of St.Domnius, which is the oldest (possible to climb to the top of the bell tower to get absolutely stunning views) and almost completely preserved the Golden Gate.
