Discovering amazing heritage and natural beauty of the 'Mediterranean as it once was'
Island Brac is one of the most tranquil places in Croatia & one of my favorite islands.
It is well known for stone cutting tradition (The White House in Washington & the parliaments in Berlin / Vienna were built of its limestone!). Also, it boasts with the highest mountain - Vidova gora - and the most famous Croatian beach - Golden Cape.
Depending on your preferences, I will take you through the islands' capital Supetar and fascinating 3000 y/o village Skrip - the oldest settlement on the island. Later we would drive to the charming old capital Nerezisca, on the way to the highest mountain peak Vidova gora (2400ft). It's a place with a stunning view at dozens of nearby islands and the mainland.
Our next stop will stonemasons' town Pucisca, where we would tour one of the last remaining stonemasons' schools in Europe.
. . . or instead, we can visit town Bol & its famous Golden Cape beach.
Brac is well known for its excellent seafood/ and lamb restaurants, so I'm sure you will enjoy your lunch on Brac

We were 10 seniors from USA in various stages of health. Matej met all our needs and planned activities that enable all of us to have a wonderful time. He arranged a week of tours and exceeded our expectations. We have traveled the world for several years and Matej rates at the top of our list for tour guides. Our trip was in Sept. 2012 and we begin communicating with Matej several months earlier and he suggested sights and literature to work with us to plan an itinerary. Thank you "Tours by locals".
