Gabrijela was a wonderful guide, giving us local insight and intriguing background history for our walking tour of Diocletian's palace. She also had a sense of humor, pointing out ironies and funny parallels from the past that still ring true today. A skilled teacher, her spoken English was excellent and the tour was well planned. Take a stroll with her and you're sure to enjoy it!
Interesting walking tour through Split. We learned a lot about history. Only ten people in our group. We had the 11:30 AM starting time. Unfortunately we were not able to avoid the massive cruise ship tours crossing our path now and then. Not our guides fault, of cause.
The park Krka was incredible, a total must.
An interesting and practical option to visit the park considering the transportation from/to Split is included, the tickets to enter the park and a Croatian liquor tasting.
Very useful and interesting information from our guide during the trip.
It shall be considered that during summer time the park will be extremely crowded, but there is a balance on this trip with the excursion to Roški Slap which is very beautiful also and there is by far, less people.
The trip is worth it.
Please consider that the food is not included and the park food is really overpriced, so better to take some sandwiches with you.
All year: EUR 15 per person
