Traverse the islands of Korčula and Hvar, lingering in the ancient villages that are sprinkled around the islands. Learn about the history of each place. Dine on some delicious local dishes. Lounge on the beach and swim in some of the cleanest waters in the Mediterranean. Take walking tours of Dubrovnik, Hvar and Split, plus get hotel accommodation and airport transfers.

Itinerary

Day 1: Dubrovnik
On arrival in Dubrovnik, check in to your hotel and then relax at leisure. Discover the city's pretty pebble beaches or people watch in the beautiful Old Port.

Overnight: Hotel Aquarius, Hotel Ivka or Hotel Lero in Dubrovnik or similar

Day 2: Dubrovnik Old Town (B)
After breakfast in your hotel, meet your guide in the center of town for a leisurely paced 2-hour walking tour around Dubrovnik’s UNESCO World Heritage-listed Old Town. Starting from Pile Gate, walk along elegant Stadrun Street, soaking up its highlights. Pass Onofrio Fountain – a spectacular dome surrounded by 16 taps – and see the Franciscan monastery with its Romanesque-Gothic architecture.

Hear about the city’s history and culture from your guide as you stroll across to Sponza Palace. Easily Dubrovnik’s most stunning monument, the palace comprises a mix of Renaissance and Gothic architecture in a simple yet grand style. While meandering through the pristine streets of Old Town, your guide will point out more notable attractions like the Church of St Blaise and Rector’s Palace. Continue walking to the main square to see the 18th-century Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin, and then stroll back to the start point where your tour ends. Spend the rest of your day at leisure in the town.

Overnight: Hotel Aquarius, Hotel Ivka or Hotel Lero in Dubrovnik or similar

Day 3: Dubrovnik – Korčula (B)
Enjoy breakfast and then check out of your hotel. After a short journey by minibus and ferry, you’ll be dropped off at your Korčula hotel. Spend your day sightseeing independently around this pretty island. Perhaps stroll around the cobbled streets of Korčula Old Town – the hub of the island – and admire sites like the Venetian-inspired Town Museum or St Mark’s Cathedral.

Overnight: Hotel Liburna or Hotel Marko Polo in Korčula or similar

Day 4: Korčula – Hvar (B)
Relax over an early breakfast in your hotel, check out and then head to the port by minibus. From here, hop aboard your ferry for a 2-hour transfer across a stretch of sea to the island of Hvar. After leaving your bags at the hotel, your guide will meet you for a 2-hour walking tour around the island's largest town, also named Hvar.

Popular for its sunny climate, Renaissance architecture and friendly locals, Hvar is a delight to explore with monuments to be found around every twist and turn. Stroll past the Arsenal building that houses one of the oldest European theaters – Hvar Historical Theatre – and then see the Franciscan monastery with its elegant bell tower. Admire the 7th-century city walls and soak up the relaxed vibe around the town’s main square (Hvar Pjaca). Your tour ends in the town center – ideal if you want to continuing sightseeing independently for the rest of your day.

Overnight: Amfora Hotel or Riva Hotel in Hvar or similar

Day 5: Hvar (B)
Enjoy breakfast and then spend the rest of your day in Hvar at leisure. Perhaps relax on a beach in one of the island’s secluded coves, or maybe take a taxi boat (own expense) to the neighboring Pakleni Islands to explore.

Overnight: Amfora Hotel or Riva Hotel in Hvar or similar

Day 6: Hvar – Split (B)
After breakfast, enjoy pick you up from your hotel for the 1.5-hour ferry crossing over the Adriatic Sea to Split – the beautiful city back on Croatia’s mainland. Leave your bags and then set off to explore Split’s enormous Diocletian Palace with your guide.

The largest and oldest city on the Dalmatian Coast, Split emerged as settlement that grew around this magnificent palace complex, built by the Roman Emperor Diocletian. Your tour starts by exploring the cellars in the UNESCO-listed palace to get a glimpse at what life was like here in the Middle Ages. After exploring the massive underground maze, head back up to ground level to see Peristil Square (the ceremonial entrance court) and the Cathedral of St Domnius.

Visit the tiny Temple of Jupiter with its eye-catching frieze and sphinx sculpture from Egypt, and then continue ambling around the palace grounds, seeing other intriguing highlights like the ruins of the Golden Gate. Your tour finishes outside Diocletian Palace, and your guide will point you in the right direction for the Green Market -- the largest and liveliest open-air market on the Dalmatian Coast. Spend the rest of your day at leisure.

Overnight: Hotel Globo or Hotel President in Split or similar

Day 7: Split (B)
Enjoy breakfast, and then the morning is yours to spend at leisure in Split – perhaps shopping for souvenirs or sightseeing independently. At a pre-arranged time in the afternoon, check out of your hotel and finish your tour with a transfer to Split Airport or another Split hotel.

On the whole this trip was excellent, we were picked up from the ferry on time and taken back with our tickets also on time, accommodation was very good but there was not much to do in Split once we did the tour of Diocletion's palace. The hotel was out of the way and also we did not have enough time to find anywhere to go but that aside everything else was good and would recommend this tour.

The local tour operator, Elite tours, did a great job of handling logistics. It made the trip so easy to meet someone to take us to our hotel or to the ferry as we moved from one place to another.

We found the independent aspect of this tour really met our expectations. The convenience of the pre-arranged hotels and transfers were very good. We did contact the local tour operator to ensure we understood the hotel arrangements and local pick-up and drop-off locations and times. We recommend all who take this excellent tour to do the same. This tour is well worth your time.

I can unequivocally recommend this travel group, as well as the trip. The company went out of their way to make sure everything ran I I smoothly, to the extent that when one of the ferries was cancelled due to bad weather, they arranged for alternative travel, and continued to provide the pick up and delivery seamlessly. The format of the trip was great, we were met at each location, transferred to our hotel, and provided with a two hour tour of the area. The guides were all knowledgeable of the history of the area, and willing to make recommendations as to restaurants, etc.The remainder of the time was free, giving us plenty of time to choose things of our own interest. The hotels , while slightly out of town central were excellent and you could reach all areas of interest by walking. Wonderful time and great memories.

Really good self driven tour of some wonderful parts of Croatia. The hotels were all great, but our favorite location in the tour was Kocula. What a perfectly idilic location to spend forever ! Dubrovnik was very busy, but loads of sights and restaurants. Mostly for the younger crown. Split was interesting. The Diocletian Palace tours was the best part of Split.

Elite Travel who are the agent in Croatia were fabulous. Airport pickups and drop offs were punctual, even for a 4.15am pickup in Split. Transfers took place with ease. Hotels varied but all were clean and comfortable. Rooms didn't usually have a view but most breakfasts were ample and the location of the hotels were within walking distance of tours/experiences and local restaurants. The included walking tours were great, especially in Hvar. I was a bit reticent about booking this tour but have no hesitation in recommending this package. We extended by arriving earlier in Dubrovnik and staying on in Split. Ivana from Elite Travel was excellent and helped to make everything go smoothly. We loved our stay in Croatia and hope to return one day.

This tour was just the best. The 7 day, 6 night independent tour gives one the chance to get the feel of Croatia. Croatia is just beautiful and the people are friendly and humble Our trip had seamless pickups, transfers and excellent hotels. The guides in Dubrovnik, Hvar and Split were very friendly and knowledgeable. This particular tour gives you plenty of time to explore on your own which is another plus. Thank you,Viator and Elite Travel.

I would recommend this tour to anyone - it was well organized and very efficient - you were able to see all of the history with lots of time to explore on your own. The transportation was always on time and the hotels were great. The only problem with entire trip was the Hotel Globo - hotel was nice, breakfast was amazing but front desk was rude, unhelpful and almost hostile when asked about why the lights in the halls were not on and why our key did not work. Otherwise perfect trip. Will use Viator again.
