Would definitely recommend!!

Tina was dynamic, she was so excited to show us her homeland. She had so much knowledge of the area and was great at explaining the history and culture of the area. We learned so much and had a great day!

There were only 6 of us in our group, and Sandra, our guide was terrific.. I thought this tour was the perfect combination of small town beauty and historical sightseeing. Diocletian's palace is most impressive, and the lavender gelato in Trogir is a must! I also enjoyed the drive through the city of Split to get to Trogir.

Enjoyed this tour very much. Our tour guide was excellent. She imparted interesting information relevant to Split and Trogir, and surrounding countryside. Provided interesting historical facts in relation to the country in general. Was impressed with her personality and sense of humor. Made the tour one of the best we have ever taken part in.

Excellent tour because of Tina! She grew up in Split and had a thorough knowledge of the history as well as current culture of both locations. When the 5 hour tour was over, Tina gave us great advice on where to spend the rest of our day in Split. We were very fortunate to be the only two on the tour with Tina and the driver, and the fact that our tour wasn't cancelled reflects very favorably on Viator/ Croatian Trails.

The tour to Split and Trogir was absolutely wonderful. We had a first class tour guide who spoke excellent English and who gave us a historical overview of the country and the regions were were visiting. The sites were beautiful and we had ample time to see all the places as described on the advertised tour. Our guide stayed with us most of the time but we also had time on our own to explore, take photos and shop. We had a comfortable, clean mini van for the four of us and our driver was cautious and considerate. He stopped on numerous occasions to allow us to take photos. We would highly recommend this tour and we plan to return.

We had booked two excursions though Viator Corfu was the other and I can highly recommend them both. There were 20 of us on this excursion and our tour guide Tina was very knowledgeable, patient and funny. The coach was immaculate and everything went to plan. The excursion was organised in such a way as for us to see as much as possible in a short period of time. Infact I had an email to say that due to the amount of traffic the excursion had been swapped around so that we would visit the medieval town of Trogir first and then Split. This gave us more free time to spend in Split where we were able to walk back to the cruise ship. Once again the cost of this excursion worked out less than half the price our cruise company. I would recommend anyone visiting this region to choose this option should you wish to visit Spit and Trogir and have a more intimate experience than those offered by the cruises.

One of the most interesting tour we had. Our tour guide Tina was the best we've ever had. She never left our side at the Split precinct to report my stolen wallet. We're lost w/o her. Btw, my wallet was returned intact but w/o the euros. A miracle indeed. Thanks again to our beloved Tina.

Our tour guide was Tina and she was amazing! The best tour guide we had during our 7 day cruise through Europe. The tour was long enough to get some awesome and very detailed information. We had plenty of time in both Trogir and Split to explore on our own too. If you are going to Split via cruise ship I highly recommend this tour. As I stated before Tina was awesome. She was full of fascinating information and very personable!

Excellent tour of Trogir and Split. Both beautiful to and interesting towns. Trogir was very small but well worth the visit. Split is obviously larger with much more history. Our guide Sandra was very informative and a lovely person.

Trogir was a wonderful surprise and lovely town to visit. Enjoyed our free time there and would like to go back in the future. Split was very interesting and even more so if you were a GOT fan, which we were not. Split was very crowded and we were rushed through the main sites. At the end of the tour, it would have been helpful for directions to transportation back to ship because it was quite a distance away and not the leisurely 10 minute walk we were told. Otherwise our guide, Rocco, was excellent and very knowledgeable.

Our tour guide was Lea and she picked us up from the meeting point exactly on time. She was very knowledgeable and informative throughout the tour both at Trogir and Split itself. I have no reservations in recommending her on this 1/2 day excursion. The only downside was the weather as it consisted of a little sunshine and but heavy showers in-between. Can't do anything about that I'm afraid.

Having Tina as our guide really allowed us to hear the historical background from a well educated local!! She was lovely and kind and informative. The airconditioned van was a bonus as it was 42C that day!!

Everything said that they would meet us after our cruise landed. We landed and we waited, and waited, and called and called to find out where they were and the number said not accepting calls. They were not there and then called hours later and said where are you? from a different number. Not good communication and left us in a foreign country with no plan.
