Private Tours & Trips
Discover Split’s charming Old Town and this breathtaking Mediterranean city’s intriguing secrets and anecdotes on foot! Marvel at the walls of Diocletian’s Palace, admire the quaint cobblestone alleyways and embrace the bustling local life that thrives in the historic core of the city today. From the top of Marjan hill to the famous Riva waterfront promenade, there is no better way to feel the heartbeat of Split than by following the footprint of its ancestors.
Split is the central hub of Dalmatia, which is confirmed by its excellent location and proximity to several of Croatia’s standout attractions. Escape from the busy streets for a day to explore the natural wonders and waterfalls of Plitvice Lakes or Krka National Park or delve into Croatia’s vibrant history and UNESCO heritage in the nearby Salona, Trogir, Klis, Šibenik or Sinj. Escape for a day to make memories for a lifetime.
Locals represent the soul of every destination, which you can explore through the many authentic experiences that decorate Croatia. Whether you’re tasting indigenous varieties of wine on Pelješac or indulging in traditional specialities like truffles, Ston oysters or Dubrovnik’s culinary charms, each experience is enhanced by the hands of its inhabitants. And if you are travelling with kids? Our family-friendly itineraries ensure there is something for everyone in the family!
With over 1,000 islands and islets, it’s no surprise that the Croatian coast is best explored by boat. Lucky for you, it has never been easier to hop on board. Let the sun kiss your skin as you explore the scenic beauty of the Split archipelago, swim in enticing sandy-bottom bays and dive into the crystalline underwater world where secluded coves and secret caves mark your travels. All boat tours are available as private or group tours, too!
Because travelling should be painless from the moment you land. Unsure of how you’ll get around in Croatia? Hop in a private transfer led by professional chauffeurs and Mercedes vehicles to guarantee you ride in style wherever you need to go during your Croatian holiday. From the airport to the ferry port and everywhere in between, our private transfers allow you to sit back and relax on your vacation without worrying about how you’ll get from point A to B!
Discover the best of the region – from Slovenia’s picturesque lakes and alpine scenery to Croatia’s UNESCO-protected towns and natural beauties; the diverse landscapes and medieval villages of Bosnia and Herzegovina down to dreamy Montenegro’s fjords and fortified towns. Southeastern Europe is a playground for history buffs, sunseekers and active tourists, with treasures waiting to be discovered at every turn.
Delve into the world of authentic Dalmatian flavours through our food & wine tours! Taste the traditional recipes of the region harnessed by generations of grandmothers, guided by the aromas of olive oil, homemade bread, artisanal meats and cheeses and indigenous wines. All we ask is that you bring your appetite, an open mind and the will to imbibe. Each edible experience is one-of-a-kind.
You Can't Design a More Perfect Guide
We’ve not only taken tours all over the world, but I’m a tour guide myself based in NYC. There’s no advice I can give her. It starts with the personality, then adaptability, and finishes with new friends having coffee on a small square. Actually it finished with a restaurant she recommended that produced the best fish of the trip. Jelena is funny, smart, and may I say even beautiful…

“The Best Ever” Tour Guide
We research for weeks in advance of trips in hopes of finding top-notch private guides or group tours in every city, and we really hit the jackpot with Jelena Vrancic. My very discerning architectural conservator hubby who has spent weeks touring historic sites like Egypt, China’s Silk Road, & Athens called Jelena “perhaps the best ever.” I couldn’t agree more: I booked 7 tours for our 21 days along the Adriatic, and our 2 days with Jelena were the only ones that scored perfect marks with both of us…

Wonderful tour for our family
My family had a 1-day stop in Split as a port of call on our Adriatic cruise in July. As we had already been to Split on a previous cruise, we chose to venture outside the city this time around and visit Krka National Park. From the first time we made contact with her, Jelena had quick responses to our emails and was always informative and detailed about what she could offer us….
