This is the ideal private Croatia tour for travelers wanting an in-depth itinerary along the Dalmatian Coast.

Begin in the ancient city of Split with private touring of Diocletian's Palace, one of the most impressive Roman ruins in the world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. With your private guide, walk through this living archaeological site, and see highlights such as the Peristyle, the Cathedral of Saint Domnius and the bell tower.

Continue by private boat cruise to Hvar, one of the most beautiful and sunniest islands in the Adriatic Sea. During private touring, explore Hvar Town, a picturesque collection of stone buildings around a natural harbor with crystal clear water, including highlights such as the Arsenal and St. Stephen's Cathedral. Perhaps also learn about local lace-making traditions or climb to a hilltop fortress for panoramic views over the town and waterfront. One day, enjoy a private cruise among the Pakleni Islands, an attractive archipelago of rocky shores and pine forests. Also enjoy ample time to relax at your resort on Hvar and browse local shops. Artisans of Leisure can arrange additional activities such as touring the historic town of Stari Grad, tasting local wines and olive oils, and driving into the mountains to visit tavernas and see abandoned villages, olive groves, fruit orchards and lavender fields.

Next, cruise by private boat to Dubrovnik. En route, stop on the island of Korcula to explore the narrow streets and small squares of medieval Korcula Town, which has Greek and Venetian roots. See architectural and cultural highlights such as the Marco Polo House and Cathedral of St. Mark.

Continue to Dubrovnik, a beautiful historic city overlooking the Adriatic Sea. With your expert private guide, explore the highlights of the Old City of Dubrovnik, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with medieval city walls, white limestone streets, and well-preserved Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture. Walk atop the ramparts, visit historic palaces and monasteries, and explore the most interesting neighborhoods and backstreets. Also browse for unique crafts, olive oil and other Croatian specialties at local shops. One afternoon, enjoy a private excursion into the countryside to see village life amid vineyards and olive groves. Another day, enjoy a private boat excursion among the rural Elaphiti Islands, stopping at small coves and beaches to swim in the Adriatic or walk through fragrant forests of pine and cypress. Additional activities can also be arranged, such as a private cooking class in the home of a local family, hiking on Lokrum Island, sea kayaking along the coast, visiting vineyards and oyster farms on the Peljesac Peninsula, or an excursion to Mostar (Bosnia-Herzegovina) or the Bay of Kotor (Montenegro).

This tour can be further customized to include additional time in Croatia or neighboring countries such as Italy, Slovenia and Montenegro.
