Game of Thrones

If you’re a Game of Thrones fan, then this is tour should be top of your list of things to do in Croatia. Several classic scenes from the popular TV show were filmed on location in Split, with the Game of Thrones tour being the perfect way to visit them.
You can follow in the footsteps of your favourite actors as you re-enact freeing the slaves for Khaleesi’s army. The City Museum, built in the 15th century and Diocletian’s are just two of the locations visited, before enjoying a feast inspired by Tyrion Lancaster.

Wars, Warriors and Reforms

If it’s real life characters you’re after, then this historical tour of Split follows the rise of the Roman emperor Diocletian to the fall of the former Yugoslavia during the 1990’s.

For many the conflict is still very much part of recent history. During your tour, you will learn how times have changed as you meet a local who remembers communism in Eastern Europe first hand.

Dalmatian Wine and Dine

Ending our top 5 Croatian tours is the Dalmatian Wine Dine experience, again in the town of Split. If you’re thinking of booking both food tours, then don’t worry as Mediterranean cuisine can be pretty healthy. That said you will still get to sample the birthplace of Zinfandel wine with a glass or two and enjoy a plate of local cheese, smoked ham and grilled fish.
