    Our guide Filip was amazing! He had lots of energy, entertaining and was a good skipper. He did everything for us to enjoy this trip. Traveling with a speedboat is definitely an adrenaline boost. Overall the tour was also great, we just wish we had 30 more minutes to complete the visit of Trogir. Other than that we recommend it 100%, such a fun experience!

  • From Split or Trogir: Krka National Park with Entry Ticket

    7. From Split or Trogir: Krka National Park with Entry Ticket

    Begin your day with a drive that takes you between the Dalmatian coast and the hinterland, as you enjoy views of Trogir, Split, and the surrounding landscape that features abundant greenery and picturesque villages. On this full-day excursion your first stop will be in Šibenik to see the sights of the town, including the UNESCO-protected St. Jacob’s Cathedral. As you continue the drive you’ll have great views of the coast and offshore islands, and hear from your guide about the history of the area. The next stop is in Krka National Park, at the Krka waterfalls. Walk along the wooden paths through the park’s stunning scenery, hear the singing of rare birds, and see water mills that have been in action for centuries. See the magnificent Skradinski buk, the biggest waterfall in the park, and one of the most beautiful cliff waterfall in Europe.

    The tour was really nice, it is a good option to go to Krka if you don't have a car. It is a plus that you stop in Sibenik on the way (maybe it would be nice to have some more time there?) and then you go swimming in Primosten. The price is ok, taking into consideration that the entrance to Krka is 200 kunas. The guide Nina was funny and professional. Thanks!

  • From Split: Mostar Tour with Kravica Waterfall

    9. From Split: Mostar Tour with Kravica Waterfall

    A scenic route takes you through picturesque villages of Bosnia and Herzegovina as you approach Počitelj. This small medieval town was built on a rocky cliff on the Neretva River and gives a great overview of the Ottoman Empire. Take a short ride to Mostar – a city from the past. Explore the city with a local guide, find yourself bedazzled at the sight of the famous Stari Most (Old Bridge), connecting two medieval towers, giving the city a widely recognizable visual identity. See young locals showing off their daredevil stunts. Cross the bridge to check out the Ottoman quarter, attractively restored after the War in the nineties. Check out the old Bazar, the Mosque and, after the walking tour, explore the city on your own. This city will inspire you with its oriental structured streets and buildings, friendly people, tasty food, and very distinctive coffee culture, which might remind yo...

    The trip to Mostar was a delight, as the historic city is beautiful, photogenic and provides a colorful change of landscape and culture, compared to Croatia, from the mosques, to the burek pastry and the Turkish coffee, served in cute little cups. In the morning a first stop was mode in Pocitelj, the first opportunity for a short hike, beautiful photos, and an enjoyable coffee break. The next stop was Mostar, where the temperature was really hot compared to Split. The local guide, Ana Maria, was really good at providing interesting and concise information about the history (old and new) of the place, as well as practical tips, and thus covering the introduction that should have been done by the Croatian guide (otherwise a funny guy), presumably. Border crossing was rather time consuming. On the way back to Split, a refreshing stop is made at Kravica waterfall. While the water is too cold for swimming, the scenery is lush and makes one forget about the hike back :-).

  • Dubrovnik Full-Day Tour from Split or Trogir

    10. Dubrovnik Full-Day Tour from Split or Trogir

    Explore the walled Old Town of Dubrovnik and learn about the maritime Republic of Ragusa on a guided tour of the monuments of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Admire Renaissance and Baroque architecture within the 2-kilometer long defensive walls and stroll down the central Stradun. See one of the oldest pharmacies in the world at the Franciscan Church and Monastery and visit the Rector's Palace and Fort Lovrijenac. Get ample photo opportunities on the pedestrianized streets, and use your free time to take the cable car to the top of Srđ Hill. Take in the magnificent views of Dubrovnik and the archipelago, or stroll around the Old Town at leisure. 

    The day trip from Split to Dubrovnik was a joy. Dubrovnik is a gorgeous place, which can easily get overcrowded, due to its small size (the Old Town). Even in mid September, it was hot. The Old Town can be enjoyed from the city walls, but this requires a good shape, since it is quite a hike. The cable car ride is very much worth it also. The view from the mountain is amazing. The road trip from Split is also beautiful, especially the second part, as the Dubrovnik area looks amazing. I found the guided tour part too long (1 hour), as a lot of information is available and can be read by those interested. After that I had to run from one place to another in the remaining 3 hours, and I had not enough time left to enjoy a proper lunch, all the more that most places were crowded. Overall, given the context, the trip with Gray Lines was excellent, well organized, in A/C minivans (participants were split in 2 smaller groups). Border crossing went smoothly.

More people need to do this tour! My guide was as big a GoT geek as I was. He was also well versed in the history of Croatia as well. He took me to GoT film sites that are not only not on the itinerary, but sites I've not seen anyone on the internet mention. He let me take my time getting the shots I wanted....there was never a rush. He even got me back in plenty of time to catch my bus to Dubrovnik. In one day I saw Bravos, Meereen. Dorne. My guide was even knowledgeable on photography and took angles to match shots from the show. I've taken Got tours in Iceland and Nortern Ireland and this was one of my favorites. BOOK THESE GUYS if you want an awesome Got experience in Split.

Really fun! Amazing live music and one the the best atmospheres if felt in split! 10/10 would recommend this activity. Great for everyone, especially anyone who loves to indulge in sparkling wine and beer while taking in the breathtaking sunset!

Luka was a wonderful guide, taking us through the key filming locations of Split/Mereen, but he didn't neglect wider Split history, which can be lacking on this kind of tour

The guide was very nice, even though it ended up being just us two, he gave us a great tour. We really enjoyed.

Amazing day! Daniela was the best host / guide and we’d definitely recommend this tour. 5 stars!!!
