Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive Zagreb.

Arrive Zagreb,where we are met at the airport and transferred to our hotel. The balance of the day is at leisure. Enjoy dinner this evening and overnight in Zagreb.

Day 2: A day in Zagreb.

A morning sightseeing tour will take us through the historic Upper Town. See St. Mark’s Church, St. Catherine’s Church, the Cathedral, Parliament, and the Government Palace. The rest of the day is ours to explore the winding streets of the old town at our own pace. Overnight in Zagreb.

Day 3: Zagreb - Plitvice Lakes - Zadar.

We head south for a visit to magnificent Plitvice Lakes National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Enjoy the breathtaking scenery of this natural wonder with its 16 terraced lakes surrounded by forested mountains and lush vegetation. A walking tour takes us around several of the lower lakes. On to Zadar and the port to embark. Later, gather with our fellow “sailors” for a Welcome Reception on board followed by dinner.

Day 4: Zadare - Sali.

Zadar’s historical center is a pedestrian zone, perfect to explore on foot. Set out on a walking tour and admire the 16th-century walls built in by Venetians as a defense from the Turks. On to see the 16th century Port Gate where the Venetian lion still stands guard over the entrance, the Square of the Five Wells, Church of St. Donat, the Roman Forum and the largest cathedral in Dalmatia, St. Anastasia. Returning to the boat, enjoy lunch as we sail to Sali. Explore the town tonight, and have dinner on your own in one of the restaurants.

Day 5: Sali - Sibenik.

Take in the scenic natural beauty of two National Parks today. Start in Kornati, home to more than 140 islands with numerous coves and crystal clear waters. Stop for a swim during our lunchtime cruise. Next is Krka, with its breathtaking waterfalls. After your visit here, coach to Sibenik where our boat is anchored. Our evening is at leisure in town.

Day 6: Sibenik - Trogir - Split.

Take a break for a swim during our morning cruise. Sail through lunch, arriving in the UNESCO-listed city of Trogir this afternoon. Free time before heading to Split. Here, a walking tour of the historic inner city shows off the Roman Emperor Diocletian’s Palace, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site. See the remnants of Split’s Roman heritage, its Renaissance and Gothic structures, Jupiter’s Temple, the Peristyle, and the Cathedral.

Day 7: Split - Bol - Hvar.

Stop in Bol, home to one of the best beaches in Croatia, the Golden Horn. Go for a swim in the clear blue waters before sailing to Hvar. Here, a sightseeing tour includes views of the first public theatre in Europe, the Franciscan Monastery, and many more historic sights. The evening is free to explore Hvar and to dine on our own at one of the excellent restaurants. (Note: Due to the limited capacity of the Hvar harbor (during peak season in July and August) port of call can be substituted for Stari Grad/Jelsa. In that case, transfer by bus will be organized to and from Hvar.)

Day 8: Hvar - Korcula - Mljet.

Relax on deck as we sail to Korcula, with an early afternoon arrival. Korcula is the supposed birthplace of the famed explorer Marco Polo.

We just returned from the Heart of Ireland Tour. The tour was very well organized and we saw a lot of Ireland. But what made the tour really special was our tour guide Mickie. His knowledge of the area and his great personality really put it over the top. He was so friendly and always kept us laughing. This was by far the best vacation we've had in a long time.

Just finished the Seven Day Heart of Ireland Tour. We had a wonderful time and we had the best Tour Guide in the business Dave Spillane. His knowledge and love of his country was evident. I loved the daily lessons ranging from Irish Traditions, Customs, Sayings to the History of Ireland from ancient times to present day. Dave kept us on track and never failed to entertain us with his stories, jokes and sayings! It was a memorable experience with fabulous sights and amazing fun filled days. Dave was an expert driver in the country and in the city. Both have their challenges but we always felt safe with Dave at the wheel. My next tour will be with Celtic because of Dave and when I come back to Ireland for another tour I will look to see which ones Dave will take the lead on. — with Dave Spillane and Dan Cooney.

Just returned from Ireland (7/28/2018). We had a great time. Our tour guide Micky Nolan always entertained, informed, and did whatever it took to give us one of the best vacations we've ever had. Great food and hotels was helpful, but Micky made it special. So glad we chose Celtic tours.
