Daily Life In Croatia, Advantages of Using A Local Guide

Traveling can mean so much more than sightseeing. It can be a way to meet people, understand different cultures, try unique dishes and expose yourself to an entirely new world outside of your comfort zone. That’s why here at Adventures Croatia, when we create tours we keep this in mind. On our tours, we want travelers to experience daily life in Croatia from the perspective of a local. All the charms, quirks and nuances that would normally be missed.

Why is it worth experiencing daily life in Croatia?

Being guided by a local expert is really the best way to break past the surface level of what Croatia has to offer. From local guides you can learn more about Croatia’s rich history, the local delicacies and explore hidden areas that are not popularized by tourist crowds. It’s about discovering the Croatian charms you wouldn’t have considered before. 

Our travel guides come packed with knowledge about Croatia that can help you create the best itineraries for traveling. Most of our team have personally lived in Croatia, so they understand first-hand what daily life in Croatia is like. 

Our team can find the best times to travel to suit your preferences, as well as plan a customized itinerary that ensures everyone in your travel party has something to look forward to. They will personalize your tours according to your preferences and interests. Whether you’re the more adventurous type that wants to get closer to nature or enjoy the bustling cities and learn about their riveting history, our local guides have got you covered.

Why should you use a local guide?

Traveling to Croatia from the US can seem like a daunting task. Firstly, there is the language barrier which can make conversing with locals difficult in certain regions. You’ll be introduced to an entirely new culture and adding a different language into the mix can ultimately make the whole experience a little scary. 

Another factor to consider is the different currency. Sure, when you’re on vacation you want to treat yourself, but having a good understanding of the currency can help with budgeting your spending accordingly. Croatia is in the process of changing to the Euro in 2023, which does have an easier exchange rate to comprehend than the dollar to kuna, but it will still require some calculations to budget properly.

Knowing where to go, what to see and how to get the most out of your trip is where a local guide can step in. Having someone around you who knows the area extensively can enhance your experience and take the pressure off of you so you can make the most of your trip.

Having a local guide with you can reduce your anxieties about being abroad, so all you have to do is sit back and enjoy your holiday. Local guides are there to act as a middleman for language barriers and ensure you get the best deals when bargaining in the local currency. They will even know a thing or two about the best foods to try and which ones you may want to avoid if it doesn’t suit your taste pallet. 

Having a local guide will make your trip completely hassle-free! They will have the best insight into tourist hotspots and the peak times to avoid, as well as hidden spots off the beaten path.
