Trogir, Salona and fortress Klis tour
What a great half day tour. We had plenty of time to explore Klis and check out the amphitheater. Then the short drive to Trogir was very scenic and our time there was perfect. What a beautiful turn on the water. Dani was our host and he was very entertaining and helpful. Would recommend this tour

Private Half-Day Klis Tour with Salona and Trogir

Private Day Trip Split- Klis-Salona-Trogir
We could not have had a better experience than we did with Anthony. From him arriving early prior to the pickup time to let us know he was there waiting for us, to accommodating our schedule up until the very end of the day, Anthony was the best. He enthusiastically modeled the tour according to our group's needs and interests, and he was extremely knowledgeable - we learned so much from him about all the beautiful places we saw. Lunch on the river was a perfect ending to a perfect day. Thank you Anthony!

Salona Klis and Trogir Full Day Tour from Split
I booked this trip because my boyfriend is a huge history buff while admittedly that’s not really my thing. I enjoyed every minute of this tour! Our guide, Marin, was obviously very passionate about what he does and was extremely knowledgable. I would recommend to all for a fun day out of Split!

Trogir, Salona and fortress Klis tour
The guide was very fun, courteous and animated. I wished he knew a bit more of history but we still had a fantastic time. I’d do it again.
