Visit the historic Diocletian’s Palace with a guide on this 1.5-hour tour of Split. Take in the churches, cathedrals, city walls, gates and bustling squares, noting the diverse architectural influences.

Once you’ve seen the many sights in the city, walk up Marjan Hill, where you can enjoy panoramic views over the city and the Adriatic.

Head back to the old town of Split and your guide will point out a jazz bar where you can enjoy a glass of wine or the best Guinness in town.

Tours operate in the morning and evening when it's cooler, unless you’d rather see the changing of the guard ceremony that occurs around mid-day in high season.

First of all, Gabby was amazing. So well informed and enthusiastic. We felt really lucky to have her as our guide. Also, she is adorable. She looks a lot like Gwyneth Paltrow. She spoke flawless English and had a real grasp on the history of Split in all its complexity. Highly recommended. Thanks, David and Deb-USA.

Our tour guide, Petra, led us on a fact filled tour of the old city and up to the first viewing platform of Marjan Hill. She timed our tour perfectly to catch Diocletian's greeting in the main square of the palace. Though we walked for 1.5 hours, the tour was not exceptionally exertional or challenging.

Great tour guide

Petra was an exceptional tour guide and knew so much history. She patiently answered our questions and shared a lot about modern day life in Croatia today. There is absolutely no signage to find the meeting point. It’s actually called Gecko tours and is in a small office across from the game of thrones store. Highly recommend Petra.
