Experience the best of Croatia in 12 days


In this thorough tour of Croatia you are to experience most of the best things that Croatia has to offer. You will experience the mixture of Croatian culture, food, and natural beauty. You will see most of its main regions, and mixture of islands, hills, forests, lakes, ancient Roman sites, caves, and more. You will see the place where river merges with the sea, where ancient gods were worshiped, where many dozens of waterfalls create uplifting and high energy-atmosphere, where a city used to be a Republic, where a dragon is supposedly sleeping underneath a castle. You will see the smallest town on Earth, the rainforest-like environment, the birthplace of Marco Polo, the ancient Roman and ancient Venetian towns, the island where Odysseyus was encharmed by the nymphs, and much more. In short, this journey is a mesmerizing combination of culture, natural beauty, food, and magic.

- transportation + private driver.
- some trip expenses for providers of the tour

(NOTE: if one or two people, the price of the tour is 6000 USD)

(NOTE 2: Having a private driver for this type of tour is important. The driver is taking care of the vehicle and picking us up and dropping us off, without us having to worry about parking and managing the vehicle, which saves up huge amount of time. It also enables the guide to fully engage in conversations and explanations, without having to be focused 100% on the road).

- accommodation and food for you (you are taking care of your own accommodation, but if you wish I can help you find it)
- admission fees (aproximately 120 euros per person)
