Explore a lot more of Istria
If you wish to fully explore & discover one of the most interresting European microregions, far north of Mediterranean as far as far south of Central Europe, I am offering you a three-day program that will take you through traditions, fascinating landscapes enriched with unique architecture and turbulent history. I will suggest you exquisite gourmet choices with utmost and greatest pleasure as well. . .
For me as a guide, it is and always will be hard to compile a story about Istria in just one day, since I believe that this region definitely deserves more of any curious discoverer's - traveler's attention. No matter which "field of interest" you are interested or appassionated for, I can 100% guarantee you Istria has something of it, or usually even more. . .
Welcome to northernmost part of Mediterranean, Northwest of Balkan, southern corner of Central Europe, Slavic-Romanic-Germanic-balcancanic, bilingual. . . welcome to Istria!

Matijas is simply the best ever. We have used guides for 30 years and Matijas was as good as anyone. We did the three day tour of the Istrian peninsula. Learned history, culture, architure, religion, truffles, olive oil, wine, the people and much more. A shear joyful time. On the business side, Matijas was professional and punctual. It was a pleasure and worth the time and cost. You won't be sorry for using Matijas for any of his tours. Gary and Candace Love Dallas, Texas September 2017
