Questions & Answers

Question: Why is Croatia becoming popular? What makes it a great destination other than you can also go to Venice??

Croatia is a beautiful coastal country off the Adriatic Sea and has gained in popularity among travelers partly due to the fact that Game of Thrones heavily filmed here. In addition to that, there are many beautiful cities to visit such has the old town of Dubrovnik with their iconic orange tile roofs, the Diocletian's Palace in Split, and much more.

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.

Globus quality has decreased. The included tours that were led by local guides were too much information. We stood in one spot for 15 minutes listening to history that we wouldn't remember or be interested in. After that we would be turned loose to figure out what to do. At times the weather was raining buckets so we still had to try to find shelter. We didn't need that much shopping time. Hotels were very good to sub standard.

By Deborah C on Sep 15, 2019

Everything went as expected, even better.

By Deepak D on Aug 11, 2019

Rooms changed by Globus at the last minute in Opatia (Villa Continental instead of Grand) were below expected standards. Leaking sink, broken shower handle holder and cup holder in the bathroom. Mold/mildew along the bath tub. In another hotel (President Hotel in Split) no hot water for a while on the day of arrival and next 2 mornings. Some of the day trips were difficult for people with knee, hip or heart issues. No such warnings were given in tour description.

By Johnny S on May 05, 2019

I must admit I was a little disappointed with the Hotel accommodations and Buffet Breakfasts in all but two cities. Based on two prior trips with Globus, both to Spain & Portugal, the Zadar & Dubrovnik Hotels were the only ones that lived up to the Globus standards I had experienced in the past. Everything else about the trip was truly outstanding. I was also disappointed with the last minute changes to my flights. I did not allow me sufficient time to log into the airlines website and pre-select my seating assignments.

By Evangeline T on Sep 17, 2018

Our tour director, Rudolph, was born in Germany so he has first hand knowledge of the country. He is very organized, professional, caring and respectful. He kept us entertained especially during the coach drive with German stories and music that were relevant to the town or city that we were in or driving through. We returned home with a electronic compilation of German stories, poems and music that Rudolph put together. It is a meaningful memento for us. Once again, Globus provided a well thought out vacation experience with first class accommodations and entertainments.

By Lois C on Sep 09, 2018

Fabulous Croatia tour. Highly recommend. Tour guide was wonderful. Great vacation!

By Maria F on Sep 08, 2018

The hotel in Split was the worst we have stayed in Europe, and we've been traveling there 25 years. There is too much emphasis on the optional excursions to the detriment of the included excursions. The day is planned around the optional excursions instead of the other way around. The pace is not moderate. Very fast paced. The local guide in Pula was terrible, we may have well skipped it. The tour director and driver were very professional. All other aspects of the tour, hotels and locations were good. After this experience we realized we will never do an escorted tour again.

By Irene F on Jul 15, 2018

Loved the trip and will use Globus in the future.

By Elizabeth M on Jul 15, 2018

This was a perfect trip to take with my mother.

By Dennis S on Jun 17, 2018

Croatia Tours are a must for all travelers. Beautiful Country and people.

By Janet P on Sep 03, 2017

This is a fast-paced tour with lot of walking & climbing which was fine with us but some on tour had difficulty mobility wise. For us it was an amazing trip through many breathtaking sites. Our tour guide was terrific.

By Huikuang T on May 11, 2015

The "President Hotel" in Split, Croatia, should be removed from Globus's future booking for the reason that there are just too many "deferred maintenance" items. Everyone complained after stayed. For example the AC/Heating Unit must be turned off by the Reception employee. I opened the top cover and found that the filter was full of dirt/dust. It has never been cleaned/replaced.
