Day 1: Depart Dubrovnik
( overnight in Elphanite Islands - onboard)
Saturday. Departure from Dubrovnik harbour Gruz at 1 pm, cruise along the south Dalmatian coast down to the one of the Elaphite islands - Sipan where overnight is planned. Enjoy your evening meal and experience the fantastic sunset in this small fishermen village.

Day 2: Mljet and Korcula
( overnight in Korcula - onboard)
After breakfast we continue toward Mljet where we visit the National Park - two salt lakes connected by a narrow channel to the sea. Includes a boat ride to the St Mary isle in the Great Lake, where the old church and monastery are situated. Swimming in lakes or cycling around them is permitted. After lunch, we continue towards Korcula, the birthplace of famous explorer and adventurer Marco Polo. Surrounded by medieval walls, Korcula resembles a miniature Dubrovnik when approaching from the sea. The town has more legends, tales and monuments than you can find anywhere else. Today, Korcula is the only place in the world where the Spanish medieval knight's game – Moreska is still performed. Before arriving in Korcula in the afternoon hours a swim break in one of the beautiful little bays is planned, and upon arrival enjoy a walk throughout the streets of the old town built in the shape of a fish bone. Visit the numerous konobas/ taverns, restaurants, cocktail bars or night-clubs located within and around the city walls.

Day 3: Hvar Island
( overnight in Hvar - onboard)
This morning we head towards the island of Hvar, the longest and sunniest Adriatic island, a favourite destination for jet setters from all around the world. After lunch, we stop for swimming at nearby Pakleni islands, time for relaxing and refreshment in the clear, crystal blue sea before arrival in Hvar in the afternoon hours. Town offers many cultural and historical sites (Renaissance cathedral, the oldest communal theater in Europe founded in 1612, Franciscan monastery, the Benedictine convent famous for their lace listed on the UNESCO World Heritage List, Spanjola fortress towering above the town ...) and many restaurants and bars and nightclubs open late all night long. Tonight we'll enjoy a scrumptious Captain's Dinner.

Day 4: Vis
( overnight in Vis - onboard)
Our next destination is the island of Vis, which was, because of its unique geographical position, a strategic harbour for the navy and closed to the public until recently. Because of this isolation, Vis has a special charm of ‘the Mediterranean as it once was’ which makes it really interesting to see. Overnight in the town of Vis, situated on the northern side of the island, developed near the remains of the ancient Issa, first urban centre in Croatia. If interested, visit the remains of the Roman thermal place, City museum or simply take a walk enjoying the views of the beautiful villae rusticae situated along the waterfront.

Day 5: Brac and Zlatni Rat
( overnight in Brac - onboard)
This morning we continue our cruise to the island of Brac, more precisely to the town of Bol, a typical Dalmatian fishermen's village turned into tourist destination. Bol is best known for its beautiful Zlatni Rat beach (aka Golden Horn). On a scenic promenade walk (which takes approx 2 hours) from Bol you can reach the highest peak of all Adriatic islands – Vidova gora, under which town lies.

Day 6: Markarska
( overnight in Makarksa - onboard)
Our next destination is the town of Makarska, the famous tourist destination with many restaurants and bars and interesting beach promenade. Enjoy the magic of the central spot of the Makarska Riviera, and be sure to take a walk along the city streets – with abundance of churches and other cultural sites.

Day 7: Omis and Split
( overnight in Split - onboard)
After lunch we cruise towards Omiš, a picturesque town surrounded by steep rocky mountain cliffs, where the river Cetina flows into the Adriatic sea, ideal for river rafting on the streams of the Cetina river. Climb up to the old fortress above the town or simply take a walk through the old town of Omiš and discover the glorious long history through the many historical monuments. Afterwards we continue our cruise towards our last destination – the town of Split, a city under UNESCO protection, and its historical richness and beauty does not belong only to people who live near its walls, but are offered to those that want to experience the centuries-old beauty. Upon arrival we recommend that you join our guided tour of Split with an English speaking guide for walk through the old city center, 1700 year old Diocletian's palace.

Group tours are their speciality. It's what they do well. They started with one trip to Egypt and their Middle East and North Africa portfolio now includes Jordan, Israel and Morocco. Featuring exotic destinations in Europe like Turkey, Iceland, Croatia & Russia, and the colourful countries of India, Sri Lanka and Nepal in the subcontinent, they're now very much a Southeast Asia specialist too, with Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand proving very popular. Japan was recently added as a group touring destination to complement China in the Far East. And Peru, Costa Rica and Mexico are their top picks in Latin America.

Visiting exotic far flung places across the globe, their group tours, which generally consist of between 16-18 people, strike a balance between well-planned itineraries which include key highlights and spare time to do your own thing as well.
