Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
As well as tasting some great local wine, the tasting session gives you an insight into wine production in the area. Learn all about the history of Croatian wine from the bar’s sommelier and get tips for bottles to take home!
What You Can Expect
After walking the entirety of the promenade, perambulate up Marjan Hill, a nature preserve where locals take refuge from the fast pace of Croatia's second most populous city. Learn about the history of the places you're passing from your expert local guide, as you stroll up the hill on a winding trail that goes through a verdant landscape. Stop for a minute to take in the great views of the city and the sea just beyond it.
Once you reach the hill's acme, begin the stroll down hill to the neighborhood of Veli Varoš, a very local part of town and also an aesthetically pleasing swath of historical buildings. Pop into a favorite local wine bar to begin the second half of the tour: sampling some locally made wine and cheese. Sitting among locals, try the wine and discuss the chief characteristics of Dalmatian vino.
After your wine tasting finishes, leave the bar and work off your night’s food and wine with a final stroll back to the start point.
Guide was enthusiast and extremely knowledgeable
Wonderful from start to finish! Our guide Nives was terrific - she covered history, architecture, food, people, could answer every question and was indefatigable, not to mention a lot of fun. The wine tasting was a perfect end to our rambling walkabout, and the Dalmatian cheese platter was delicious. If you want to put what you're seeing walking the streets of Split into any kind of context, you should book this tour.

What a wonderful evening. Our guide Nieves (I hope I am spelling this correctly) took us to the top of Marjan Hill. We really got to see how people live - not just the harbor or the palace. Also some great photo ops. Then onto our wine tasting. So professional and well done. Some great Croatian wines and some wonderful snacks as well. Highly recommend this tour.
Nives was a great guide - knowledgeable and flexible. Also loved Zinfandel, the wine bar and stayed several hours. Only small complaint was that the advertised cheese plate was not included. We paid for it separately.
Disappointing would not recommend.
This tour did not happen. Went to meeting place and no one met us.
