Istria Private Tours

Istria tours, Istria private tours, personal tours, ToursByLocals
Sometimes referred to as the "new Tuscany," Istria is a beautiful peninsula in Northern Croatia, whose history and present day are infused with Italian influence. Holiday makers are attracted to its sunny coast, while Istria's medieval hilltop villages attract painters and artisans. Enjoy seeing this charming part of Croatia on a private Istria tour with a friendly local guide.

A leisurely wander through Rovinj is a must: this late medieval town is imbued with Venetian overtones, and the architecture and picturesque harbour setting combine to make it one of the most romantic villages you'll see on your travels. Your guide will be sure you visit the Roman Amphitheatre at Pula, where you can witness a modern performance in the well-preserved ancient setting. In Poreč, you can see the World Heritage-listed Euphrasian Basilica, a superb example of 6th century Byzantine art.

Your guide is happy to accommodate your unique interests on your private Istria tour.

  THE TOURSBYLOCALS DIFFERENCE
  • Choose your own guide. See their photos, read their bios and communicate with them prior to booking your tour.
  • It's more affordable than you might think. Our pricing is per-tour NOT per-person so if there are 3 or more in your group, you'll probably pay less than if you took a big bus tour.
  • Every tour is private. Your guide will spend time only with you and the people you're traveling with.
  • Go at your own pace. See as much as you can or slow things down to a saunter. With your private guide, your day is flexible.
  • Benefit from a local's knowledge. Access more intimate, out of the way spots that have never seen a bus tour.
  • Every tour is customizable. See the sights YOU want, try the food YOU crave, learn about what interests YOU the most.
  • Questions? Talk to a REAL person. Our customer support team offers reliable, friendly service plus a 24 hour emergency hotline.
