Independent travel in Croatia is wonderful but sometimes it's great to have someone take care of the details for you. Taking an organized tour or a package holiday in Croatia allows you to see a great deal in a short amount of time at an unbeatably low price. Purchasing a package holiday that includes flights and hotels can offer remarkable value for money.

Private Guides

Hiring a private guide can be an excellent way to see a lot quickly in a town or region. Private guides can arrange for the best time to visit a museum or monument and give you the kind of in-depth background you could never get from a guidebook or app. They can take you to out-of-the-way places or arrange an itinerary that caters to a special interest such as food, wine or shopping. Not confined to walking tours, a private guide can arrange to accompany you in a car or minibus to see more far flung sites. And it's not much more costly than hiring a car on your own plus you get the convenience of a hassle-free excursion. Just hang back and enjoy the ride.

In Croatia, private guides are licensed and required to undergo regular retraining. Each municipality is in charge of their own guide programs. In Split, I highly recommend Ante Batarelo, a personal and highly knowledgeable local. In other areas, a good place to start is at a local guide organization. Here is a selection:

Dubrovnik Guide Association

Pula Guide Association

Zadar Guide Association

Zagreb Guide Association
