All tours on website are private and we provide only private tours. Some Activities in private multi day tours, or private day tours can be group – like Blue Cave entrance where you get into smaller boats and enter the cave or truffle tasting in Istria.
Private tour is a travel package/travel tour for people who don’t want to travel with other people – who want to travel their own way. Private tour also means having private transportation (private car or mini-van with private driver or maybe private boat with private skipper). Other private services can be private guides in cities or at attractions, having private chef etc.
Extension to private tours would be tailor made tours, but again, tailor made tours are also private tours – just adjusted to your special needs and wishes.
Difference can be understood also that Private tour is travel package which is already created while tailor made tour needs to be created based on your wishes and requirements.

Way how we work is that you have private driver / tour guide during your tour. Except driving, you will have person who will help you with logistic issues during the tour. Driver / tour guide will provide you basic information about sights you will visit, coordinate meetings with private local guides and communicate about your needs with Agency. Private guided tours will be held by licensed local guides in areas you will visit. It is actually only and legal way to have guided tours is by using local guides because every region in Croatia requires guides from that region.
Private Drivers / tour guides speak excellent English (C1 level), while private local guides can do guided tours on many other languages depending on availability and possibility.
Hotels can be booked directly by you, with our assistance if needed. Another option is that we book Hotels. Experience Dalmatia works with 4* and 5* Hotels. We do not book apartments for rent or villas for rent.
