This private tour of Croatia features the country's top scenic, cultural and culinary highlights.

Begin in Zagreb, the elegant capital of Croatia. With your private guide, explore the cobblestone streets, small squares, markets, churches and Baroque buildings of the Upper Town, as well as the Secessionist (Art Nouveau) architecture and leafy parks of the Lower Town. Enjoy time to browse local shops, sit at local cafes and stroll through leafy city parks. Also enjoy a private excursion to the bucolic Zagorje region to visit Trakoscan Castle, dine on regional specialties at a local tavern, and sample wine produced in Zagorje.

Next, transfer to Split, stopping en route to visit Plitvice Lakes National Park, a beautiful region of turquoise lakes and cascading waterfalls among forested hills that's been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Continue to the ancient city of Split. Enjoy 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. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can also arrange an excursion to nearby Trogir, a UNESCO-listed island town that preserves atmospheric Romanesque and Renaissance architecture, including the beautiful Cathedral of Saint Lawrence.

One day, enjoy a private boat excursion 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. Also cruise among the Pakleni Islands, an attractive archipelago of rocky shores and fragrant pine forests.

Next, transfer to Dubrovnik, stopping en route for wine tasting at an organic winery on a hillside with panoramic views of the Adriatic coast. Also visit the seaside village of Ston on the Peljesac peninsula to sample fresh oysters harvested from a local bay and see the ancient salt pans and impressive city walls.

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. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can arrange a private cooking class in the home of a local family. Additional activities can also be arranged, such as hiking on Lokrum Island, sea kayaking along the coast, a private boat excursion to the Elaphiti Islands, 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.
