HIGHLIGHTS

These one-of-a-kind tasting experiences will introduce you to the world of authentic Dalmatian flavours!

 

OLIVE OIL TASTING

Olive oil is more than just food to the people of the Mediterranean: it’s a foundation of our well-being.

In ancient times, virgin olive oil was called “liquid gold” by Homer and “the great healer” by Hippocrates. It has been produced throughout the Mediterranean for millennia and some of the best types of olive oil can be found here in Croatia.
Learn how to appreciate and distinguish different types of olive oil during this guided tasting.

Learn about the history and cultivation of olive oil. Recognise the olive oil quality and taste three different types of olive oil during this expert-guided tasting. Olive oil is paired with the Fleur de Sel, aceto balsamico and artisan bread with a green olive pâté.

 

WINE & OLIVE OIL TASTING

Enjoy a guided tasting of three types of Croatian wines and find their perfect pair in three types of extra virgin olive oil. Learn all about the ways of recognising the olive oil quality while sipping some of the best Croatian wines. To complete the tasting, olive oil and wine are paired with Fleur de Sel, aceto balsamico, cheese, olive tapenade, and homemade bread.

CHEESE & WINE TASTING

Indulge your taste buds with this full Dalmatian-flavoured experience. During this tasting, three types of locally produced Dalmatian cheese (cottage, cow & goat milk cheese) are paired with three varieties of Croatian wines. Artisan bread drizzled with some high-quality olive oil, fully-bodied aceto balsamico and homemade wine vinegar complete this unique tasting.

 

DALMATIAN TAPAS & WINE TASTING

Croatian region of Dalmatia is well-known for its abundant locally-grown produce, wonderful cheese, world-class wines, and traditional artisanal recipes.


It is no wonder that late Anthony Bourdain, the famous American chef, gourmet, and travel writer, was swept off his feet trying out our food and wine when he visited in 2011. While filming his culinary show “No Reservations” on Croatian cuisine, he was particularly impressed with top-quality Croatian wines, which he said were among the finest in the world.


Indulge in the most appetizing flavours that Dalmatia has to offer during this guided tasting. Try three different tapas (seasonal bruschetta, white fish marinade, anchovies, and honey-dipped cottage cheese) all paired with olive oil and finest Croatian wine.

Jelena's tour of Split was the highlight of our 3-week Balkans road trip

We had a wonderful couple of hours with Jelena in Split. We were so grateful that she was able to fit us in at the last minute. (We actually overheard her giving another couple a tour when we first arrived and were quite impressed. We resolved to track her down, and we got lucky.) What a treat. Not only is she perfectly delightful, she is incredibly knowledgeable and professional, speaks perfect English, and has organized a tour that gives you great groundwork for a stay in Split, It’s so much more rewarding when you know the backstory. Thank you, Jelena, and thank you for turning us on to the candied orange rind. We’ve tracked down a recipe and will be making those at home.

Thoroughly enjoyable and deeply informative walking and foodie tours of Split and Trogir – including Jelena’s secret route onto the walls of the Diocletian Palace for a very privilege cityscape view – supplemented by more Pre-tour advice, and a far higher level of responsiveness, than anybody else I’ve come across in Croatia.

Informative and tasty tour of Split

My husband and I had the pleasure of spending some time in Split during our vacation in October. The day started out with a steady and hard rain but Jelena was undaunted, we switched some things around and made the best of it. By the middle of the day the sun was out and we had spent some quality time with the sights, history and food stuffs of Croatia. We ended the day at the Mestrovic gallery having been exposed to an amazing artist, overlooking a gorgeous view. It was the best of a tour guide experience, learning about a country through its food and culture with an accomplished and flexible guide.
