Spilja Vranjaca

Reviewed By mindsetxxx - Richmond, Virginia

What a wonderful experience. This was our most memorable experience in the Split area. We had the caves all to our selves and the man who runs them was full of information about the area. Google maps may take you on a very strange way to get there though!

Klis Fortress

Reviewed By KeenPhotographer-11 - Brisbane, Australia

Very little to see and the very visible electric cables and flood lamps across fortress views only detract from the experience.
Our Tom Tom GPS was not happy with the www supplied street address but the road signage is good. Older guide books are also out of date with the current road and public transport access.
Only opens at 09:30 in winter.
40 Kn pp entry fee is not worth it.
No working toilets.
GOT fans may get a thrill but there are far more interesting old fortifications in Croatia.

Even though It is named outlet prices are too high, for example Adidas outlet has same prices as main Adidas store in Zagreb.

Reviewed By RJCN8 - Dublin, Ireland

We were a family of four with teenagers and we all thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Our boatman was Vladimir, who we found out later was the owner of the tour company. We were the only ones on the speedboat so it was really like a private charter. We enjoyed snorkeling in the two secluded coves that Vladimir brought us to. He also gave us lots of interesting information throughout our trip. The water was very clear and teaming with lots of marine life. We also stopped off at Milna on the island of Brac for an hour so we had refreshments and a look around. Great trip would highly recommend it.

Opensea Diving

Reviewed By GoedBezig - Belgium

Ivan and Ivica both speak English very well and put a lot of emphasis on diver safety. Rather than take the level on your certification card for granted, they place more value in the number of dives you've made and the time since the last one, which I think is a good approach. The rental equipment was generally in good shape, except for some worn out fins with broken foot pockets. You don't have to lug tanks around or even put the sets together; they were already prepared upfront in the boat. The boat ride can be about 45 minutes to the Islands. The boat is open so take care to avoid sunburn.
The dives are very relaxed but rather short and shallow: about 30 to 40 minutes bottom time, average depth around 7 to 12 meters. If you have experience (and your own dive computer), you can sometimes go a bit deeper, for example at the wrecks. The upshot is that you surface with half your tank remaining and a feeling of wasted opportunity. On the other hand, the crystal-clear waters will chill you down after a while in the 5 mm suits, so the dive plans are probably a reasonable tradeoff between adventure and comfort. There are some nice wrecks and caves in the area; interesting marine life is harder to spot.
All in all, an OK diving experience for all skill levels, with a friendly and trustworthy team!

You will have the opportunity learn about the preparation and characteristics of top-quality olive oil, taste award-winning extra virgin olive oil and other Dalmatian delicacies (a variety of cheeses, olive tapenade, fig and prune cake, traditional sweets...).You will also tour our production area and see how our products are being handmade on the spot and taste some of them. There is also a possibilty of purchase at affordable factory prices.

We were taken to this rather out of the way vendor of local home made and locally produced products on out tour. I am sure the guides or their bosses get a small thank you in one way or another. It is a pleasant stop where one can taste locally produced food products, drinks sweets, jams, preserves, olive paste etc. It is clean and well presented, you can try before you buy all on display, so we did. We gave our young daughter a free hand saying she can get one thing for herself, after all it was her holiday as well, you would never believe she it, she chose the Olive paste she said she loved it, (like us she tried all bar the alcoholic drinks). On getting to our room in the hotel she gave me strict instructions to keep the olive paste in the safe of our room and no one was to eat it without her permission. The guide was astounded that she has never seen a child so young given a free hand to choose what she wanted and she chose olive paste over the beautiful sweets on offer, including almonds in sugar and candied orange peel. Well worth a stop we spent over 200 kuna, the products are not cheap but of high quality..

Ruins of the Solin Amphitheatre

Reviewed By 908Laura - San Francisco, California

We stopped here after Sibenik on our way to Split. Very close by.
Interesting that this ruin is literally in someone's backyard. Definitely not a place for tourist groups. The family who lives there is nice enough to offer their bathroom for visitors to use.
There are still some structures standing, but the ruin is extensive. My kids enjoyed climbing up and down the rocks.
Definitely worth a stop.

Croatia Family Holidays

We organise adventure & culture day trips for families in the Dalmatia region in Croatia. We are based in Podstrana, on the Split Riviera. So we can offer the local prices with the best support. All our tours include express transfers, English speaking guides, local taxes and equipment. Where possible we are trying to create like minded family groups, with similar aged children and teenagers

Reviewed By Lynne B - Royal Tunbridge Wells, United Kingdom

Had an amazing time in Podstrana with Green World Holidays. We travelled with our 15 year old daughter who, for the first time, experienced a holiday without her big brother or cousins. She was a little apprehensive beforehand but needn't have been. She bonded fantastically from the start with the other teenagers (as did we with the parents) and this absolutely made our holiday. We met some lovely people who we will hope to keep in touch with. Both reps, Maria and Barisa went over and above ensuring all events were well organised, communicated and made fun!!. One of the benefits for us was the door to door service provided by Green World drivers for all activities, including sometimes waiting for us at restaurants after activities. Having organised events independently in the past, this really took the stress away. We have come away with some lovely memories and would not hesitate to recommend this holiday. Well done Green World.

Ancient Salona

Ancient ruins of the city of Salona.

Reviewed By Ksenija M

Because it is still not exploited for tourism like other destinations. You can touch and feel how Ancient Romans lived 2000 years ago. Walk through ruins without boundaries and security yelling where not to go. Take a bus to Solin and explore the history.
