Split, Split-Dalmatia county, Croatia

"The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page. " - Saint Augustine __________________________________________________________________ Welcome/Dobrodošli, I am pleased to extend my warmest greetings to everyone attending my tours.

The tours I'm providing are a celebration of Croatian cultural and natural heritage, and endless beauties and classic tales that go with it.

Dalmatia, it's the name of my region where I was born and raised. Thousands of attributes try to define Dalmatia, to grasp its nature, but none of them fully succeed, since this part of Croatia, situated on Eastern Adriatic Coast, with all its richness, complexity and diversity refuse to be reduced to one notion, to be defined with a mere word. Dalmatia has been the subject of and an inspiration for a wide range of research, from exact sciences to popular music; scientists, artists, and journalists have all been trying to fathom its essence, to express the gist of it, and the attributes have been arising daily. However, Dalmatia, this spring of inspiration whose incomparable beauty remains unfathomed, still resists the reduction of a few words. How could mere words express all the abundance of spirit accumulated during the course of millennia? How could the magnificent scenic beauty that has adorned Dalmatia from time immemorial be depicted by means of several letters?

There is no single attribute that can comprehend all its facets, for its protean character surprises not only travelers but its inhabitants as well. Dalmatia is more ravishing and more beautiful than the most imaginative conceptions of it, more than any words with which one tries to describe it. Experience a magical journey through past, present and future. . .

. . . from the natural heritage of Plitvice lakes and Krka waterfalls National Parks to the cultural heritage of Split, Trogir, Šibenik. . .

. . . across the allure of Hvar island to the Golden Horn beach of Brač island. . .

. . . emerging from the deep Blue lake of Imotski to the time-travel through the ancient Roman ruins of Salona, Tilurium, Narona . . .

. . . through the paved alleys of the former maritime Republic of Ragusa (today's Dubrovnik) followed by speedboat extravaganza of the Blue Lagoon . . .

. . . over the Mostar bridge in Bosnia-Herzegovina to the wine tasting of autochthonous Dalmatian grapevine varieties . . .

. . . visit Medjugorje, a special place reached by pilgrims in search of the spirituality and serenity . . .

. . . join me to the unique endless journey tailored just for you. . .

A Recent Review of this guide

Frane was an excellent guide. The entire trip was relaxed, fun and informative. From start to finish it was a perfect day and with an awesome guide. We did the Mostar tour from Split and it was great. There is nothing Frane wasn't happy to help with, from a history lesson to simply taking a photo - Frane was always happy and laid back. I highly recommend a tour with Frane, it is well worth the cost to avoid a large group tour. The laid back feel of the private tour was worth every penny. Absolutely great!
