Ditch Dubrovnik for the day and head to Split, the lovely coastal town 140 miles (229 kilometers) up the coast. After meeting your guide, learn about the history of the area during the three-hour drive. Once in town, take a 1.5-hour walking tour of the city. See incredible sights, like Dioclean's Palace, the Riva promenade, and ancient churches and temples. Take free time to do some sightseeing on your own and perhaps enjoy a meal at a local restaurant.
  • Split day trip from Dubrovnik, led by an expert guide
  • See top sights including the UNESCO-listed Diocletian’s Palace during a guided walking tour
  • Explore Split Old Town and stroll along the Riva promenade
  • Make the most of ample free time to explore independently
Get picked up at your hotel in Dubrovnik and hop in the air-conditioned vehicle for the 3-hour journey up the stunning Dalmatian Coast to Split, Croatia's second-largest city. As your meander up the coast, drink in the eye-poppingly beautiful views of the coastline and learn about the history of the area from your guide.
In Split, take a 90-minute walking tour of the city, starting at Diocletian's Palace, a beguiling complex that is today part of the fabric of the city with shops and restaurants inside the former palace grounds. Head inside the palace (at own expense), a UNESCO-listed site, to get a closer look. Visit Peristyle Square and the Cathedral of St. Duje (St. Domnius), an octagonal-shaped structure that was originally meant to be Diocletian's mausoleum.
Listen to your guide regale you with tales of the eccentric Roman emperor, Diocletian, and see some spots where scenes from the hit HBO series Game of Thrones were filmed.
After the tour, take three hours to see Split on your own. Get some tips from your guide or set off to wander the streets, perhaps tuck into a hearty seafood lunch at a local restaurant (at own expense).
Eventually meet up with your guide and begin the ride back to Dubrovnik. The trip concludes with a drop-off back at your hotel.

Mixed thoughts on this.

We travelled 8 hours in total on the day to spend only 3 hours in Split!

I was really looking forward to visiting Split but disappointed by having a poor tour guide. The walking tour was cut to 1 hour rather 90 minutes and we were only given 3 hours altogether in Split instead of 5 hours.

Left me feeling extremely disappointed as the tour guide was very boring and not engaging. We weren't given enough time to explore as free time was reduced to under 2 hours and we had to take time out of that for lunch.

Now looking back it seems the tour company prefers to leave Split by a certain time latest 2.30/3pm and this dictates how long you get in Split rather than what you're sold in the tour description.

It didn't happen. Both Viator and the local operator did not want to know. Monarch airline failed early 2nd October 2017, as a result I had to rebook flights. The earliest I could get was 3rd October 2017. I contacted viator and the local operator on 2nd October and they kept referring me to one another. As a result of which someone pocketed my 150 which I wanted to transfer to other trips.
I suggest you book with with other operators.

Other than the palace, there is not much to see. We did enjoy the marina and lunch. It was a long bus ride from Dubrovnik.

Really good

A long way for a relatively short period of time, but a lovely place to visit, have lunch and see the unique Roman remains still lived in to this day. Views from the cathedral bell tower were great. Our driver, Robert, was excellent - his spoken English was great and he explained lots about the history of Croatia and life there today as we went along.

The trip there was good the driver talked to us because we were in the front with him didn't know you needed passports for this one would have been good to be told not our cup of tea but very popular place

Fantastic tour. Tour guide 5 star. A little disappointed we only had 2 hours in split and looked at description of tour when got back to our hotel and it should have been longer so if you planning on going just be aware.

Day trip to Split 23/08/2016.

Split was a vibrant and touristic harbor town. The Diocletians Palace was a must thing to see!
I wasnt in my best condition that day but thanks to the driver and the guide from Dubrovnik I apologize for not remembering their names who were very accommodating and hospitable that made the whole trip very enjoyable.

Highly recommended!
