What people are saying about Solin

This tour is amazing! An excellent way to learn about the ancient, medieval, and early modern history of Split, Dalmatia, and Croatia as a whole. Jadran’s commentary brought to life the ruins of Salona, the streets of Trogir, and the defenses of Klis fortress. He clearly has a deep knowledge and passion for Croatia’s history and culture, and he was happy to answer all of our questions – both about the particular sites and about Croatia in general. He also has a good sense of humor and made sure to keep us engaged and comfortable. This tour is probably one of the better ways to experience these sites if you are interested in historical details, as the sites themselves don’t contain a huge amount of information. Note that the tour involves a fair bit of walking – so bring water and sunscreen – but there are plenty of breaks, either in the air-conditioned van or on the shady streets of Trogir.

Truly a very pleasant experience ... Organized in such a way as to allow you to see the most important things that a city totally unknown to a traveler can offer ... Our positivity stems from the fact that we also had a guide, Doris, who in her immense passion for his work and for his city, he transmitted to us the love for the places that this very nice tour has offered us ... One more note we want to spend for how it was organized ... Between a tour and the other we also had times in total freedom where we could eat, walk and sip a cocktail .... We highly recommend it and .... THANKS DORIS ... we hope to meet again one day ... Maybe to ... . ROME!
