CORONA VIRUS ALERT Whilst tourists volumes remain low in Split, we have taken the decision to temporarily close our office premises but we remain very much OPEN FOR BUSINESS.
Due to the Corona Virus, we at Gecko Tours follow advice issued by the Croatian Government and have put in place measures to ensure social distancing and clean, safe travels at all times.
We aim to provide excellent small group, interactive, guided tours of this region, focusing on the varied but undeniably rich cultural and gastronomic traditions that abound throughout this beautiful area. We endeavour to showcase the people, the culture, the music and the rhythm of Croatia and the beautiful Balkans in an authentic and informative manner. We are committed to the community in which we live and those that we pass through. We are also committed to global sustainable tourism despite the obvious challenges that this presents to a business of our nature – please see Our Community

How Do We Travel:
We aim to provide you with a holistic appreciation of the varied lands we travel through. The Balkan region is steeped in history – from the Greeks to the Romans – Venetians to Austro Hungarians, this is a land with a very colourful past – not always peaceful but not short on things to discuss. We visit many of the better known sites along the way but also quite a few places and family restaurants – away from the madding crowds – to give you a truly authentic view of these lands.
As we tour, we not only provide you with the historical, gastronomic and cultural background to the areas we travel through but – through our small group approach – we endeavour to fully engage in specific areas that our guests may be interested in. In this way, we adopt a very interactive and individualistic approach, a very different approach to that taken by many other packaged, more commercial, tours. We can do this because we are “locals” – albeit, well travelled locals. We have spent much time researching and touring the region and identifying these special places so we can be confident in the absolute quality of our product and its delivery.
All our tours are designed to allow our guests some free time to explore places on their own too. We are, of course, always on-hand to deal with all enquiries our guests may have but weunderstand that people may just want some time to explore on their own.
All our tours – by default – are carried out in the English language. All our guides are fluent in English. However, by special request, we are also able to provide private Balkan Experience tours in French, German, French and Mandarin.
