Dalmatia Highlights Small Group Tour from Dubrovnik to Split


    Save To Wish List

    Adding item to wishlist requires an account


    Visit medieval and cosmopolitan Croatia, ensuring you won’t miss out on any of the wonderful sights and secrets this beautiful country has to offer.

    That’s because we’ll arrange guided tours and book your accommodation and dinners in advance.

    Not only does this save you time, energy and worry, but it also gives you longer to enjoy the country (and which is why you’re there, after all).

    This trip involves three nights in beautiful Dubrovnik and four in the lovely city of Split.

    Both of these cities have so many attractions to visit that it’s not possible to see them all in a limited number of days and that’s why we’ve researched the main sights for you.

    We have mixed it up with a visit to waterfalls, beaches, towns and cities.

    But this holiday isn’t a case of constant sight-seeing.

    You will, of course, have time to spend browsing on your own, sampling the delights of little cafes, restaurants and shopping at bazaars and markets.

    What to Expect

    Join this exciting small group tour, starting in Dubrovnik and finishing in Split. You’ll be accompanied by our experienced English-speaking tour leader and driver. Arrival and departure transfers will be arranged for you. The tour starts with a short meet & greet where you’ll get to know your fellow travellers and your tour leader. Your tour leader will make sure the trip goes smoothly and introduce you to this wonderful country, answering any questions you might have.

    From Dubrovnik’s gorgeous cobbled alleyways and medieval walls to the stunning Krka Waterfalls – Croatia has many hidden secrets just waiting to be explored.

    Some of their star attractions they rightly boast about, such as the amazing wine currently being produced on the Pelješac Peninsula.

    Indeed the island of Korčula’s cliff sides – like its interior – is covered in thousands of vines – hence the reason a wine tour feels almost compulsory while visiting the island.

    In Split you will find the seemingly never-ending fortifications of what must be one of the biggest palace you’ve ever walked around. But better than that, this ancient giant is actually being lived and worked in today. Some 3000 people live and work in and around Diocletian’s Palace, almost seeming to bring the past alive.

    Rest and relaxation are inevitable on Hvar Island, supposedly the sunniest place in Croatia and a home to one of the most beautiful Renaissance cathedrals in the country.

    • Historic City of Trogir where you’ll visit the stunning Cathedral of St Lawrence and the Cipiko Palaces
    • Diocletian’s Palace in Split, the stunning fortifications of one of the biggest palaces ever (and which at one point had a ship sailing through the lower floor)
    • Dubrovnik Old Town and the City Walls. Medieval, narrow, cobbled alleyways, bright bazaars – and all protected by the giant ancient city walls.
    • Korčula Island, the home of the famous explorer Marco Polo
    • Pelješac Peninsula and its amazing wines
    • Hvar Island where the ancient and modern come together

    Dinner and overnight in Dubrovnik / Dubrovnik area.


    Breakfast at hotel.

    Morning guided tour of Dubrovnik Old Town.

    It’s not just the fact that the perfectly preserved medieval Centre of the Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, that secures Dubrovnik Old Town’s place in the list of ‘World Must See’s.’

    No, there’s also the vibrancy and colour such a lived-in area bustles with.

    The fact people live and work amongst these steep and narrow cobbled closes brings the location alive, stirring the imagination and making history itself seem more real.

    This is all achieved against a dramatic landscape sparkling turquoise Adriatic Sea on one side and towering limestone mountains on the other.

    Free time after the tour to explore and enjoy the various bazaars, markets, cafes, restaurants and bars.

    Dinner and overnight in Dubrovnik / Dubrovnik area.


    Breakfast at hotel.

    You’ll visit the island where the famous medieval explorer Marco Polo grew up, sample some of the best wines from Pelješac peninsula and take a look at the stunning rocky landscape straddled with vines and other lush green foliage. After a short walk around Korčula Town with your tour leader, you’ll have plenty of free time to explore the town on your own, perhaps visiting Marco Polo’s house and having lunch at one of the restaurants.

This dates back to 1213 with the bell tower built later I the16th century and which commands a stunning panoramic view from the top. Some of Trogir’s city walls remain standing today, so too does the 300-year-old city gate. You can see where the nobility of the city lived in the nearby Cipiko Palaces.
