After the flight over the lakes, the route takes you to the town of Omiš. Omiš is situated at the Canyon of Cetina River. Omiš is widely known for its glorious pirate history and serves as a reminder of the times when pirates used to control Omiš. The main landmark remaining from the pirates stands proudly over the town – the fortress of Mirabela. Pirates of Omiš used the fortress as a lookout so that merchant ships couldn’t stay unnoticed when sailing along the coastline. The flight continues along the coastline towards the Split suburbs. The west coast of Split is the extension of Split’s Riva to the west. Enjoy a magnificent view of Split and luxury yachts. Next on the route is the Klis fortress, which served as a major source of defense in Dalmatia, especially in the middle ages.

Mijo gave is not only a tour of Split in perfect english, but also gave us a information on Game of Thrones scenes filmed in Split and Croatia. He was even an extra in GOT which made it very special (make him show you his video from Season 4 with Khaleesi). His knowledge of Croatian history is great, and he makes it interesting and relevant and entertaining. Go with Mijo, he is a Split native who will take you on the inside track to his amazing city.

Mijo made the tour fly so fast in an interesting and relaxed manner, such a captivating story about city Split and local culture. Perfect balance of storytelling and visual details. Would highly recommend ! PS. Mijo thanks for great tour and will be back to try your vegan food tour as well !

The tour was perfect, we enjoyed it very much, would definitely recommend!
