Guide to Booking a Customized Tour of Croatia

Croatia has a lot to offer as a vacation destination. There is a wealth of things to do, see, and experience. From Zagreb, the food capital, to the lush oasis of national parks, and the sun-kissed islands on the Dalmatian coast, there is something for everyone in Croatia. Booking a bespoke trip promises a one-of-a-kind experience that caters to your individual dreams and desires.

Why book a customized tour of Croatia? 

One of the main advantages of booking a customized tour of Croatia is being able to craft the type of vacation you want, that includes experiences that interest you. A bespoke trip also gives you freedom and flexibility throughout your vacation. You can choose your own departure and return dates as well as the duration of your bespoke tour.

There is no need to rush to keep up with a detailed itinerary and group. Instead, move at your own pace and spend time lingering at places that capture your attention. 

Through customized tours of Croatia, you have opportunities to visit off-the-beaten-path destinations that pre-planned tours don’t typically travel to. You’ll have access to local insider knowledge, which will guide you towards places and activities that suit your needs. 

How to book a bespoke tour of Croatia

Booking any sort of vacation can feel stressful if you don’t know where to begin. That’s why we’ve put together a step-by-step-guide to help you book your customized tour of Croatia.

  1. Determine your vacation preferences 

Start by thinking about what your dream holiday includes.

Are you absorbing sun rays on a private yacht on the sparkling turquoise waters of the Adriatic sea? Are you eating your way through the local culinary delights or perhaps chasing some of the best waterfalls the country has? Maybe you really want to visit where Game of Thrones was filmed.

Understanding what you are looking for in your vacation is the first step to planning your customized tour of Croatia. It is also important to determine technical details such as: 

  • Destinations: Choose your desired destination(s). Maybe you are drawn to particular areas in Croatia, such as inland or perhaps the islands along the Dalmatian coast? 
  • Group details: Determine how many people you will be traveling with and note details such as dietary requirements. 
  • Budget: Establish a budget of how much you’re willing to spend on your tour. 
  • Travel dates: Choose rough dates for your vacation. It is best if your dates are flexible as this allows your tour operator to secure the best options and deals. 
  • Accommodation preferences: Decide on what sort of accommodation you are looking for. Would you prefer to stay in 5-star hotels or maybe locally owned guesthouses?

During this stage, discuss your group’s size, interests, intended trip length and any budget constraints you have for your vacation.

4. Booking and final confirmation  

Once you are satisfied with your itinerary, your tour operator will then book your flights, accommodation, activities, and excursions for you. You will receive confirmation of all the bookings along with a detailed itinerary.  

5. Pre-departure 

The support doesn’t stop once your trip has been confirmed and booked. Your tour operator will continue sending you information, such as packing lists, weather forecasts and more.
