Day 1 - Split (D)
Our incredible journey will begin in Split, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed city beside the azure Adriatic. Tonight, we’ll get to know one another better over a delicious welcome dinner. Accommodation: Hotel Jupiter (or similar)

Day 2 - Split – Trogir (B)
Today’s history-filled agenda begins with a walking tour of Split – where a local guide will take us into the white walls of Diocletian’s Palace, a vast fortress filled with centuries of history. We’ll also pay a visit to the Grgur Ninski Statue and the Cathedral of St Domnius, before moving on to medieval Trogir. Here, we’ll be taken around the maze of marble streets and Romanesque buildings by a local guide – before going our separate ways to explore this tiny island town and indulge in some delicious local cuisine. Accommodation: Hotel Tragos (or similar)

Day 3 - Trogir – Krka National Park – Trogir (B)
his morning will see us seeking the crystalline lakes and energetic waterfalls of Krka National Park. We’ll be shown around this mesmerising park by a local guide, before moving on to a local winery. At this quaint establishment we’ll learn the history of winemaking in the region – while being treated to a tasting of selected wines. After that, we’ll round off the day with some free time to relax back in Trogir. Accommodation: Hotel Tragos (or similar)

Day 4 - Trogir – Korcula (B, D)
Today we'll say goodbye to Trogir and move on to Split, where we'll catch the ferry to Korcula – an island that's reputed to be the birthplace of Marco Polo. After checking into the hotel, our Tour Leader will take us on a stroll through the Old Town, before we enjoy some free time to delve deeper into the hidden treasures of this medieval island. Then: time to hone those culinary skills! We’ll uncover the distinct and unique flavours of Croatian cuisine with an included cookery class – and indulge in our creations for dinner this evening. Accommodation: Hotel Korcula De La Ville (or similar)

Day 5 - Korcula (B)
Today you’re free to explore Korcula as you wish. Lounge at a nearby beach or find a café and get better acquainted with the local cuisine. If you’re in the mood for exploration, you can even hop aboard a taxi boat to the tiny island of Vrnik. Accommodation: Hotel Korcula De La Ville (or similar)

Day 6 - Korcula – Pelješac Peninsula – Kotor (Montenegro) (B, D)
After bidding farewell to Korcula, we’ll set sail to the nearby Pelješac Peninsula – a hotspot for winemaking since the days of the Roman Empire. Savour the fruits of this ancient tradition with a visit to a local winery before we leave Croatia for Montenegro. Kotor Bay is a soul-stirring sight – and at the centre lies UNESCO World Heritage-listed Kotor town, seemingly untouched by time. Enjoy some free time to explore the picturesque Old Town at your leisure, before reconvening tonight for sumptuous group dinner. Accommodation: Hotel Vardar (or similar)

Day 7 - Kotor (B)
First today: a guided walking tour of Kotor. Old Kotor was built like a maze for protective purposes – and it’s very easy to get lost here without some local expertise! Following that, we’ll take to the water. A boat will carry us to Our Lady of the Rocks: a small church on a manmade island. After hearing the fascinating legend behind the church, we’ll return to Kotor – where you’ll be free to spend the rest of the afternoon as you please. Accommodation: Hotel Vardar (or similar)

Day 8 - Kotor – Lovcen National Park – Dubrovnik (Croatia) (B)
Today it’s back on the road (taking the scenic route, of course) as we make our way to the picturesque Lovcen National Park. A local guide will show us around as we soak up the incredible views across Montenegro. Then, we’ll pay a visit to the charming village of Njeguai – where we’ll have time to enjoy lunch at our leisure. Moving onto Dubrovnik – the evening will be yours to hunt down more local fare, explore the city’s cobbled streets or simply put your feet up and relax at the hotel. Accommodation: Hotel More (or similar)

Day 9 - Dubrovnik (B, D)
Today’s guided tour of Dubrovnik will see us strolling through the Old Town, where we’ll see the likes of the Franciscan Monastery, Sponza Palace, the Cathedral of Our Lady and the Old Port. If the weather is on our side, we’ll take the opportunity to climb the spectacular Mt Srd on a cable car ride. Tonight, we’ll come together for one last included dinner – and clink glasses to what an incredible nine days it has been. Accommodation: Hotel More (or similar)

Day 10 - Dubrovnik – Trsteno – Dubrovnik (B, L)
Before our journey comes to an end, there’s still plenty of time to round things off with a visit to the beautiful Trsteno Arboretum. After tucking into a delicious lunch at a local oyster farm, we’ll return to Dubrovnik – where we’ll say our goodbyes.

B-Breakfast, L-Lunch, D-Dinner

Our accommodation, whether old country estate, exotic hotel resort or traditional villa, is carefully selected to reflect the character and charm of each Back-Roads destination. Some properties are situated in a stunning setting or have interesting historical and architectural heritage, while others may have been chosen for their owner-hosted welcome or excellent food. Character is not a substitute for quality, however, which is why all of our accommodation throughout Europe and Asia comes complete with ensuite facilities, comfortable furnishings and delicious food. We offer a choice of twin, double or single rooms – and while room sizes in older buildings may vary, each room will have its own unique style and character.

Cast thoughts of long journeys spent zipping up and down motorways from your mind. Whether in Europe or Asia, our tours have a more leisurely style that gives you the freedom of travelling in your own vehicle – but with none of the hassle. Our premium mini-coaches are equipped with comfortable seats, air conditioning and large windows for enjoying the view. With the flexibility to go anywhere a car can, we take the smaller roads, travel through beautiful scenery and get right to the heart of tiny villages and buzzing cities. Along the way, your Tour Leader can offer intriguing insights about the sights we see over the on-board PA system. And, with long drives kept to a minimum, you’ll have plenty of time to stretch your legs and explore our destinations yourself.

How far in advance do I need to book?

Cruises: For our weekly small ship cruises with guaranteed departures we suggest you book as soon as your plans are in motion. All cruises are extremely popular especially during peak season, which is June, July, August, September and these dates can be booked out up to a year in advance, especially September. One-way cruises are particularly sought-after and tend to sell out first, so please speak to us first to ensure your cruise choice is available before booking any flight arrangements.

Escorted Tours: Escorted Group Tours with guaranteed departures are also best booked as early as possible to ensure your place on the tour, as spaces are limited to a set number of passengers. Once the tour is full that departure is closed for new bookings.

Island Hopping, Self-Drive, Self-Guided Cycling/Hiking and Independent or Private Tours: Independent tours are available most days of the week at any time of year, so if you're booking late these are a great option. They can also start or finish on any day of the week, so can be a great alternative to the cruises (that mostly depart only on Saturdays). You can check out our Island Hopper Tours and our active tours for some examples. If you can't find what you are looking for please make an enquiry on any of our tours and let us know what you need. We love creating custom tours with our clients.

What do the different ship categories mean?

Please see our Ship Descriptions page here, for all the information on Ship Categories, Deck and Cabin Descriptions.


What is half-board? What meals are included?

Half-board (HB): This means that 2 meals a day are usually provided, mostly it will be breakfast and lunch on cruises, and breakfast and dinner on escorted tours. Each cruise or tour will have meals listed on the daily itinerary, so that you will know exactly which meals are included. Some lunches or dinners are swapped occasionally, so that you may enjoy a wonderful gourmet experience with your fellow travellers, such as a Captain's Dinner on a cruise, or a wine-tasting and lunch on an escorted tour. For the remainder of your meals you will be able to dine anywhere you choose and you will be responsible for the cost of those meals. Your Cruise or Tour Director will be happy to recommend a good value and trusted eatery nearby at every location, or you can explore on your own.

Bed and Breakfast (BB): This means that only breakfast is included in your holiday. Most of our Independent Tours include breakfast only, so that you are not beholden to going back to your hotel for lunch or dinner as you are going to be exploring on your own. We think that flexibility with lunch and dinner gives you the best option for exploring Croatia and experiencing the local culture and cuisine.

Full-board (FB) is occasionally offered on cruises as an optional extra, but we do not recommend you take the full-board option unless you are really sure about it. A lot of the joy of the cruise and tour experiences is to dine in local restaurants, 'konobas' (traditional pubs) and bars, so that you can meet the people who live and work there. Why come all the way to Croatia only to eat on-board for every meal? There are so many fabulous (and even some famous!) eateries. Get out there and taste them!


What type of transport is used on the Island Hopper Tours? Local ferries and vehicle transfers

Local ferries: Local ferries are used between the mainland and the islands where possible. Most of these ferries are fast ferries (high speed catamarans). Our Island Hopper Tours include all ferry tickets, as well as delivery of the ferry tickets to your hotel, when we come to pick you up to take you to the ferry port. In some towns, where some hotels are in the pedestrian zone close to the ferry port (like Hvar), then you will be met at the ferry and directed to your hotel, with luggage assistance if required. If your hotel is outside the pedestrian zone you will be met at the ferry and taken to your transfer vehicle, with luggage assistance if required.

Transfers: Most Island Hoppers have private airport transfers included, and private transfers to/from the ferry ports on the islands. Some transfers will be shared transfers if there are others going to the exact same hotel at the same time and it is a short distance.

How fit do I need to be for my holiday?

Relaxation/cultural cruises and tours: On-board your cruise ship, you will need to be able to negotiate gangways and stairs and be able to step from ship to ship as the cruise ships are moored next to each other sideways and sometimes you need to step across to the next ship. You will be walking mostly on the cobblestone streets through the iconic cities and towns of the region. The excursions are best-suited to those who are capable of walking on uneven surfaces as many old cities and towns have limited totally flat surfaces that can accommodate wheelchairs or walking-frames. Please contact us to ask about your specific circumstances, as we are happy to help plan for your needs as best we can. Assistance will be provided on cruise ships to help you navigate getting on and off, but there are a few limitations. Please ask.

Cycling tours: Although almost completely flat this cycle tour is graded easy to moderate as the daily distance ranges between approximately 15-50 km. You will be biking mostly on the dedicated cycle paths alongside canals, rivers and through the iconic cities and towns of the region. This tour is well-suited to those who have never taken a cycling holiday before as it is flat and predominantly traffic-free and you also have the option of skipping the cycling and relaxing on board.

What happens if I can't attend an excursion?

It is possible to relax at your hotel, on the tour bus or on the boat at any time.

What happens if I can't cycle or hike a stage on an active holiday?

For cycling cruises: If you don't want to cycle it is possible to relax on the boat as it moves to the next port of call.

For cycling and hiking tours: If you don't want to (or can't due to illness or injury) cycle, hike or walk a stage, then we will make arrangements to have you transferred to the next stop on your itinerary so that you can continue with your holiday. Prices for transfers vary widely, so pricing will be provided on an 'as needed' basis only.

What equipment do I need?

Relaxation/excursion cruises and tours: You will need comfortable walking shoes, clothes for relaxing, your swimming costume, and a sunhat. Most cruises are fairly relaxed and casual clothing is fine for all meals, though you may want to take one nice outfit depending on where you wish to dine onshore.

Cycling cruises and tours: You will need comfortable sports shoes, comfortable clothes for cycling, waterproof jacket and trousers, a helmet and a sunhat. We supply a detailed packing list with your information pack.
