Croatia and Montenegro Tour

Croatia and Montenegro Tour

DubrovnikMany of the places you’ll visit on this 9-day tour of Croatia and Montenegro line the coast of the Adriatic Sea.

An important place for sea travel since before Roman times, some of the ancient man-made structures – like the Pula Amphitheatre – you’ll see here are worth the visit alone.

But they’re almost nothing compared to the natural beauty of the coast – as well as that of inshore areas like Zagreb and the Plitvice lakes…

Of course, like any Balkan Tales tour, you are in full control of the itinerary.

Your friendly, fully licensed guide will be there to make you familiar with the locals and their culture. They’ll also give you real insight into the fascinating history of Croatia, Montenegro and the rest of the Balkans.
