“Having heard that the Adriatic countries were beautiful, I expected the typical European charm. However, I was thoroughly surprised by the captivating scenery, the tumultuous history, and the fairytale settings of these countries! This trip greatly exceeded my expectations!”

Pula, Croatia

"My first wow moment of the trip and probably my favorite was upon visiting Pula and seeing the almost intact amphitheater. Walking in and underneath it with our guide, I was transported back to Roman times. To learn that it was still in use for events today was heartwarming."

"This tour has it all: mountains, lakes, the sea, cities small enough to enjoy the unique wonders of each one, and warm and passionate people moving forward from a troubled past. Our guide shared his knowledge of the social and political history in easily digestible servings. Great tour for anyone."

Old Bridge, Mostar, Bosnia-Herzegovina

"We were introduced to wine makers, historians, farmers raising donkeys, war survivors, beautiful nature, architectural delights, and some great people moments. The Rick Steves philosophy of community building and just the right amount of on your own time made the trip."

"Like other RS tours that we have taken, every location, sites, etc. were WOW moments. If we had to select one, it would be the town of Split with its rich history, especially Diocletian's Palace and the St. Domnius Cathedral."
