An island to love
You know how they say that we sometimes don't see what's right in front of us? Well, the island of Brač is somewhat like that. Just 45min ferry ride from Split there is an island laden with history and rich in natural beauties. Most famous for its radiant white stone (White House in Washington DC is built of it!) and a pebbly, long dream beach (Zlatni Rat) Brač is an attractie destination with many awards.
We'll do a mini-van ride from Supetar to Bol, two main centres on opposite sides of the island. In between, we will explore sleepy stone villages, stopping to see most interesting sights: Škrip, 2000 years old settlement with the most charming museum revealing much about history of Brač and its everyday life, and Pučišća with its stone carving school, one of the few left in Europe.
In Bol, after our walking tour, you can dip in the crystal clear water, enjoy wine tasting in Stina winery or visit Dešković gallery. On our way back we'll stop at the "Roof of Adriatic", for a truly majestic view of Adriatic!
The tour starts at 9am with comfortable ferry ride from Split to Supetar, where we are picked up by our local chauffeur. In the mini-van we enjoy a short drive to Škrip. Visit to the museum of the island of Brač and short walk through this sleepy village. We continue to Pučišća, for a visit to the stone-carving school. We than drive to Bol for a walking tour od the town and some free time for relaxation and swimming.
If you're not into swimming, visit to Stina vinery can be organized (upon request). It is a modern, exclusive vinery where one can try some of the best Croatian wines and have a nice snack (prosciutto, cheese, olives, bread).
At 14:30 we head back to Supetar. On our way back, we drive to the "Roof of Adriatic", at the height of 778m, for a splendid view of the Adriatic sea and many central Dalmatian islands. At 15:30 we take ferry back to Split.
This tour can also include visits to Dragon's cave or Blaca monestery or be done by private speed boat from Split. Pls contact me for tailored programme

Katja was real fun to be with and was a great guide. We took the ferry to Brac, which was a truly wonderful experience. We toured a large part of the island in a very comfortable van. Of particular interest was touring the school for future stone masons - their work is amazing. The most fun we had was wine tasting at Stina Winery. It is a great old building with modern decor. The setting for tasting was relaxed and intimate (we had a group of 4 with Katja) and the wine was excellent!!
