The day trip from Split to Dubrovnik was a joy. Dubrovnik is a gorgeous place, which can easily get overcrowded, due to its small size (the Old Town). Even in mid September, it was hot. The Old Town can be enjoyed from the city walls, but this requires a good shape, since it is quite a hike. The cable car ride is very much worth it also. The view from the mountain is amazing. The road trip from Split is also beautiful, especially the second part, as the Dubrovnik area looks amazing. I found the guided tour part too long (1 hour), as a lot of information is available and can be read by those interested. After that I had to run from one place to another in the remaining 3 hours, and I had not enough time left to enjoy a proper lunch, all the more that most places were crowded. Overall, given the context, the trip with Gray Lines was excellent, well organized, in A/C minivans (participants were split in 2 smaller groups). Border crossing went smoothly.

This place is absolutely awesome! A great impressive fortress full of the history of this part of Croatia and Europe. The views from way up there on that clifftop perch are extremely impressive.

More people need to do this tour! My guide was as big a GoT geek as I was. He was also well versed in the history of Croatia as well. He took me to GoT film sites that are not only not on the itinerary, but sites I've not seen anyone on the internet mention. He let me take my time getting the shots I wanted....there was never a rush. He even got me back in plenty of time to catch my bus to Dubrovnik. In one day I saw Bravos, Meereen. Dorne. My guide was even knowledgeable on photography and took angles to match shots from the show. I've taken Got tours in Iceland and Nortern Ireland and this was one of my favorites. BOOK THESE GUYS if you want an awesome Got experience in Split.

This experience was fantastic, and would happily do it again. The first stop was the blue cave which was stunning, the initial speedboat ride to get there was long so be prepared, but fun! The next stops were beautiful and we were there just the right amount of time. The blue lagoon was nice, but overrated I think and the beach is pebbled so a bit rough on the feet. We were lucky as we had perfect weather which made the boat ride perfectly fine but I can imagine it could be pretty rough weather dependant. Would definitely recommend this trip and Mario and Elena were fantastic.
Amazing trip. The timing was perfect for both locations, not too long and not too short. Our guide was very communicative and gave great advice and suggestion. Everything went super smoothly despite the marathon blocking most of the road in Split. I would highly recommend this trip for people young and old.
Great trip with great guide! Would definitely recommend the shoes they offer. Climbing, swimming, rappelling with the ropes were the best. All jumps are optional! I would recommend everyone to challenge themselves!
It was very well organized and our tour guide, Rudi, was fun and knowledgeable. There was plenty of time to walk around and take pictures in Krka National Park and Primošten.
Easy to find pick up point, walking at Krka is on a well made walk way. Does involve climbing up some steps but nothing too strenuous.
