Last week we asked the question – should you explore Croatia by land or sea? Now that we’ve had a look at what its like to travel by sea on a sailing holiday, this week we are focusing on travelling around Croatia by land on a semi-independent or coach tour.
Travelling by land on a group tour
Where will you sleep?
Whether you opt for a semi-independent tour or a couch tour through Croatia, you’ll spend your nights in centrally located hotels of a 3 star standard. Offering everything you need at the end of a long day of sightseeing – a comfy bed, warm shower and a hotel bar, these hotels are the perfect place to unwind in the evening. Plus, their central location means if you’d like to see more of the town you can simply head out and explore the surrounds, find hidden cafes, mingle with the locals or simply watch life pass you by in the town square.
What will you eat?
If travelling on a semi-independent tour all of your morning meals will be taken at the hotel restaurant, with a generous spread of breakfast foods. Then for lunch and dinner you’ll be free to sample the delights of local cuisine at each port of call. On an escorted tour breakfasts, as well as dinners, are included and for lunch you can take your pick of local establishments. Croatia has two distinct varieties of food, depending on whether you are on the coast or further inland – from fresh seafood dishes to more central European fare.
How will you spend your days?
On a semi-independent tour of Croatia travellers enjoy the freedom to independently explore each day, safe with the knowledge that there will be a soft bed to retire to each evening and that all their transportation is taken care of. On the other hand, on a coach tour travellers will be escorted by an expert local tour guide ensuring that they see all the best sites, learn about the history and culture of each city and town, and include many delicious local meals along the way.
