Best of Dalmatia in three steps with a private local guide

Tour that will literally take you up and down Dalmatia, starting in Split, the famous UNESCO location. After we discover the old town and impressive Diocletian's Palace, we drive to the pittoresque inland of Dalmatia region, where 100 meters under the ground one of the best kept secrets is hidden, the amazing Vranjača cave. Afterwards we drive up, more precisely to the hight of 360 meters, where the Kliss fortification is built, one of the crucial points in the time of the wars with Ottomans and also a famous Game of Thrones site! On top of it, you will be amazed with the breathtaking view of Split and nearby islands that stretches from here.


First we get on the mini van and enjoy 40 minutes drive through Dalmatian hinterland.

A Recent Review of this tour

If you are interested in seeing more of Split than the beautiful seaside I would highly recommend this tour with Katja. She planed a perfect day for us. In addition to getting to see and experience Roman ruins we had a local lunch that was delicious in so many ways. Another reason this tour was fantastic was that if gave us time to get to know Katja and hear her explanation about Croatian economy, culture, education, politics. Highly recommend this tour.
