At Gecko Tours, we aim to actively promote your discovery of Croatia’s rich heritage with one of our fully guided, small group cultural tours.
From beautiful beaches with stretches of golden sands on our Brac island tour from Split, historical island towns or locations used in TVs Game of Thrones, there’s a lot of history to discover and the list is almost endless.
Our tours offer a wealth of medieval and Roman history and archaeology and our Salona, Klis and Trogir tour is a must for those with an interest in Roman history.
That’s before you get us started on our many food and wine tours of the area – a key part of any culture in our view – take a wine tour to the Peljesac or stay closer to home with our local wine tour or Split Palace and markets foodie tours.
If you fancy something energetic with your food – why not combine it with Ziplining or white water rafting – see our foodie tours below.
How about a day exploring Krka national park and waterfalls – we take you away from the crowds to allow you to swim, explore the fantastic local flora and fauna and we treat you to some local homemade spirits at a local family Konoba on the way home.
Finally why not see two worlds in one – just a short hop from Split is the Ottoman City of Mostar – you enter another – more Turkish – world all within a few miles of Split. The food is great!
We’ve got it all so take your pick…
SEE WHAT OUR GUESTS THOUGHT OF US …
On my recent trip to Croatia, I booked three separate tours with Gecko: the Split walking tour, Game of Thrones tour and the Krka waterfalls trip.
Marin was the guide for the walking tour. He was extremely knowledgeable, entertaining and was good at involving everyone. It was at night so not everything was visible but much of the palace was lit and made for some really nice photographs. I would recommend going during the day however as there is an opportunity to take pictures of the whole city from a high point.
Game of Thrones tour was led by Tonci. He took us to Klis Fortress (the city of Marreen), the Free City of Bravos and showed us many different places inside of Diocletian’s Palace where scenes had been filmed. He brought photos of scenes that helped to put the locations in perspective and was even nice enough to take photos of group members in those locations.
Ivana took us to Krka waterfalls. What a beautiful and amazing experience. It was a long day out in nature. Climbing the 99 stairs to overlook the silver necklaces at Roski Slop was probably the most physically challenging and rewarding thing I’ve done in a while and the van ride through the countryside incredible. (See Ivana? Different adjectives!)The trip was topped off with a stop to see Baldo’s father. He makes this amazing alcohol (that I cannot spell ) and had put out bottles for each of us to sample as well as some cookies. He even took me inside his house to show me photos of his kids and grandkids. Such a sweet man. It was an honor to meet him. This trip is a very long day so come prepared with water. Maybe even lunch though there are restaurants open at both waterfall sites. And don’t forget sunblock!
All in all, every tour that I took with this company was fantastic. Each was small group, I think we had five at the maximum, Which makes for a very personal tour for everyone involved. There was no time that I thought I did not get my moneys worth or that I felt needed an improving upon. Thank you all for such a great time!
We did the walking tour of split and found it very informative as it covered the old town and the palace. The guide was great and answered any questions we had. Highly recommended. The price was reasonable and they even stored our bags.
This tour was incredible! Ask for Petra. She was very knowledgeable and tailored the tour to what I was interested in and even spent longer with me than the 1.5 hours. I learned so much about split and Croatia in general. Petra is local and her boss lives right in the old town so they are very knowledgeable about life in Split .
