  1. Each group consists of around 10 – 20 travelers. We prefer small group travel because based on our experience, large groups are less easily able to integrate into society and generally have less authentic contact with the locals.

    A small group number also means that tour group members will receive more personal treatment from the guide who can more thoroughly attend to the needs of each person. Small groups are also more mobile and flexible as travel plans can be more easily altered en route.

  2. Most of our travelers are in their late 30s to late 60s/early 70s and most are solo travelers. Generally, we get a good mix of diverse people and every trip is unique thanks to the group dynamic.

    The minimum age on our trips is 18.

    Everyone is welcome on our trips; male/female, LGBTQIA+/straight, and solos/couples.

  3. US, Australian, Canadian, UK, and EU passport holders traveling to Croatia for less than 90 days DO NOT need a visa.

    If you are not a citizen of one of the countries mentioned above, please check with the nearest Croatian embassy or consulate for information on visas and travel to Croatia.

    You may also be required to show proof of exit from Croatia in the form of a departure flight ticket.

    As a general rule, passports should have at least six months of validity when traveling internationally. Most countries will not permit a traveler to enter their country unless the passport is set to expire at least six months after the final day of travel.

  4. While most daily activities are already included in the trip price, you will have some free time and the guide can recommend and/or help arrange any activity that might interest you. Most of the activities can be arranged with little to no notice. Optional activities are not included in the trip cost and will be paid at your own expense.

  5. The official currency of Croatia is the Euro (EUR).

    Find out the live mid-market rate for your currency by using a currency converter online.

  6. We strongly recommend that you use ATMs while in Croatia as they usually offer the best exchange rates. The easiest way is to pull money out from the ATM at the airport upon arrival and throughout your trip.  It is always a good idea to carry some cash on you in case your bank puts a hold on your ATM card.

    You can find ATMs at almost all bank branches as well as at most large supermarkets, some petrol stations, shopping malls, airports, and post offices.

    ATMs are easily found in large cities and airports, although they are less common in rural and remote areas. When traveling outside on remote islands, be prepared by having enough cash as ATMs aren’t always an option.

    It’s important to tell your bank and/or credit card company that you’ll be using your card in Croatia. Some banks block transactions in foreign countries or currencies if they haven’t been forewarned of your travel plans.

    Since euros are a popular currency, most banks in your home town/city will exchange your local currency for them. This a very convenient way to get euros but be aware that some banks might not have favorable exchange rates or charge additional fees to exchange. It is best to check with your bank to see what fees are associated with exchanging money in your home town.

    You can also change currency easily in the major cities and tourist areas of Croatia. The airports have several exchange desks so it’s worth shopping around. If you aren’t happy with the exchange rates offered, then simply change what you need immediately and look for a better deal in town. Keep in mind that airports and hotels often offer poorer currency exchange rates. Upon arrival, the guide can help you find a place to exchange money at a reasonable rate.

  7. Croatia does not have a strong tipping culture. In restaurants, taxis, and for personal services, all tips are at your discretion. If you do decide to tip, around 10-20% of the total bill is appreciated.

    Tipping your trip leader: If you feel he/she did an exceptional job, then you can tip anywhere between 8 – 15 euros a day at the end of the trip based on past travelers’ feedback. 

    Yacht captain: When going on an excursion, a suggested amount to tip your driver and yacht captain is around 5 euros per day.

    Yacht crew: Staff will be there daily to prepare breakfast, clean rooms, etc. We recommend tipping the crew a total of 20 – 30 euros at the end of your stay.

    For more information about tipping your guide, please see our blog on tipping your tour guide.

  8. Based on past travelers’ feedback, an estimated amount to bring for spending is between $500 – 800 USD. WE HIGHLY ADVISE BRINGING OR HAVING ACCESS TO MORE MONEY THAN YOU EXPECT TO SPEND IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY.

    As most components of your trip have been prepaid, you will only need money for some lunches and dinners and any optional activity you may want to participate in. If you are an avid shopper or enjoy a cocktail in the evening, these costs are incurred at your own expense.

    Like most travel destinations, Croatia does not lack in its offerings of unique items. Past travelers have said it was their favorite country for shopping so pack light! You will be visiting a lot of fantastic places that offer unique items. Remember that most places that offer high-end products will often accept credit/debit cards.

  9. When using your phone overseas, be sure to check with your provider to get informed about data and call roaming prices. When you land in Croatia, you will usually get a message from your provider that will give you the price of data, calls, and texts in that country. See the example below:

    Welcome to Croatia! Your plan gives you unlimited data at up to 2G speeds and texts at no extra cost. Calls at 20 cents/min. Want our fastest data and unlimited calls? Get an International Pass for just $5/day. 

    You may contact your service provider to learn about what international plans they offer for calls, texts, and data.

  10. All hotels we will be staying at will offer free Wifi and most restaurants and other public places will offer it as well.

  11. In Croatia, the plug type is C. Croatia operates on a 230V supply voltage and 50Hz. Croatian outlets can fit the round-pin Euro plugs which look like this:

  12. In the spring and autumn, the weather is usually cool to warm during the day and cold at night. A light jacket and/or sweater is recommended for the daytime and a warm jacket and pajamas for nighttime.

    In the summer, the weather is warm to hot during the day and light clothing is recommended. The nights may get cooler so we recommend packing a light jacket just in case.

  13. Even if you travel in the summertime, bring warm clothes to layer for cooler evenings.

    Below are a few things that we suggest bringing to make your trip more comfortable:

    • Comfortable walking shoes
    • Cardigan or light jacket
    • Small across-the-shoulder day bag or small backpack
    • Sunglasses/hat
    • Sunscreen (biodegradable if possible)
    • Swimsuit
    • Flashlight
    • Water shoes
    • Flip flops/sandals
    • Any prescription medication and over-the-counter medicine
  14. Since most of this trip will be on a boat, there are no laundry facilities. Please make sure to bring enough clothing for the trip in the event that you are not able to clean it.

  15. Yes, we can. When making your reservation, please notify us of your specific requests such as gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, etc. Alternative options will always be possible throughout the tour although options might be limited.

  16. Most areas of Croatia have few crimes compared to bigger US and European cities. As with any travel destination, it is important to be aware of your surroundings with a secure over-the-shoulder day pack that closes tightly. This way, your belongings won’t easily become the property of any purse snatchers or pickpockets.

    When going to larger cities such as Dubrovnik or Split, pickpocketing is much more common and we advise not putting anything in your back pockets, especially if you are on a crowded bus/train or at a crowded tourist spot as thieves tend to target these areas.

  17. Please review the CDC Health Information for Travelers Website before traveling to Croatia to see any recommended vaccinations.

    If you suffer from pre-existing medical conditions or are concerned about what vaccinations may be right for you, we strongly advise that you visit a medical professional or your personal physician before your trip.

  18. We offer private tours to Croatia depending on the size of the group and availability.

    Please reach out to us at for more information.


Your arrival city is Dubrovnik (DBV) and the departure city is Split (SPU).
