Itinerary idea in detail

Private customized tour. Ask us about booking your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • After leaving baggage claim, you’ll be welcomed at Split airport by your private guide who will escort you to your hotel in the city. You’ll have some time to settle in before meeting a local guide at your hotel who will take you around the historic, marble streets of Diocletian’s Palace revealing its hidden history during an afternoon walking tour.

  • Explore north of Split with your private guide visiting Kamerlengo Fortress and the side streets of Trogir. From here, you’ll continue to the 14th-century city of Šibenik to see the Cathedral of Saint James before taking a short drive to Krka National Park. Here, you’ll have a chance to walk the scenic trails and view the park’s waterfalls from a series of viewpoints.

  • After checking out of your hotel, you’ll join a private driver and guide on a ferry to the island Hvar. Arriving in Stari Grad you'll stroll the narrow lanes lined by fortified houses. You'll then drive through the island's hills, passing olive groves and vineyards, before stopping at one of Hvar's best wineries to enjoy a guided tasting of local wines. You'll finish the day in Hvar town, where your hotel is located within the well-preserved historic core.

  • Today you'll have the day at leisure. Choose from exploring nearby bays and beaches, renting a local boat for the day to the islands of Biševo or Vis or spend a relaxing day by the pool at your hotel.

  • In the morning, you’ll join your private guide for a kayaking trip to the nearby Pakleni Islands. Your guide will provide all the equipment needed, as well as refreshments, so you can spend your morning paddling around secluded bays, stopping for a hike through pine forests, swimming in secluded coves or relaxing with a picnic on a pebble beach. In the afternoon, you’ll have time to relax at your hotel or explore some of Hvar’s 16th-century palaces or its Spanish fortress.

  • Leaving Hvar, you’ll take an hour-long ferry journey to the island of Korčula — the 13th and 14th-century walls and towers of Korčula town are particularly impressive when first seen from the water. After checking into your hotel, you’ll meet your private guide for a walking tour of the walled city often referred to as ‘Little Dubrovnik’ thanks to its medieval walls, imposing churches and Venetian palaces.

  • You’ll continue south today after a 15-minute ferry ride to the mainland followed by a scenic drive through the Pelješac Peninsula, one of the country’s top wine regions. You’ll sample a few glasses at two local wineries before a visit to an oyster farm in Ston for a tasting of their celebrated shellfish. From here, it’s a 90-minute scenic drive along the Dalmatian Coast to your hotel in Dubrovnik.

  • Explore the old town of Dubrovnik with your private guide, taking in highlights such as the city walls and the Church of Saint Blaise as well as lesser-known attractions that offer a deeper insight into the history of the city. Then, board the cable car to the top of Mount Srđ for expansive views of the city, coast and islands.

  • Your last full day in Croatia will be yours to enjoy as you please. Perhaps explore the nearby island of Lokrum to see the Royal Fort, visit the Benedictine monastery and its botanical gardens or swim in crystalline waters. Alternatively, you could relax on the popular Sveti Jakov Beach or simply laze by the pool at your hotel.

  • Your private driver will pick you up at your hotel and take you to Dubrovnik airport in plenty of time for your departing flight.
