    Your Guided Group Holiday to Croatia's Istrian Coast

    Join us on a trip to Croatia to experience the  Istrian Coast and prepare to be charmed by exquisite churches, tiny village alleyways, and hidden coves with crystal clear waters. Though this region has been welcoming holidaymakers for decades, it still remains relatively untouched from mass tourism, meaning visitors experience the unique Croatian culture and lifestyle first hand. On this guided holiday, we’ll explore charming villages and three of Croatia’s most attractive coastal towns, Pula, Rovinj and Poreč. Your expert guide will delight you with the history of the region and point out traces of the Roman and Venetian influence still evident today. We’ll also discover the beautiful coastline by boat; the best way to take in the rolling green hills that lead to the sparkling Adriatic sea.
