What a fascinating city. We booked a walking tour with a private guide, Josko Zovic, who was so knowledgable and pleasant. It included a stroll and tasting through the local market, tour of Diocletian's Palace cellars & the midievel city, and a contemporary history lesson over lunch. It was fabulous. The city is quite a long walk from where the ship docks. Those with mobility issues or who tire easily may want to get the short cab ride. Read Less

Our guide was excellent, had a lot of personal insight and really knew the history of Diocletian’s palace. Very interesting, but a lot of walking which we did not mind, but older couples were having some difficulty keeping up.

One tour for both Trogir and the Old City. Both were pretty awesome! We choose this as we wanted to also make it to the Archaeological Museum on our own, but unfortunately they were closed with no explanation, despite it being during hours they were supposed to be open. When we told our tour guide where we were going, she told us it was awesome, and also believed it was open, so call them first as they might be a little flakey. Read Less

It was very interesting to view the old palace and understand how the lowest level was preserved by trash. The stonework was amazing. It was interesting to see examples to old local handicrafts.

We jumped on the "Hop on Hop Off" bus parked on the dock. We toured the city of Split, we went up to the nature preserve above the city and ended with a walking tour of Diocletian's Palace. Though we were told the bus would take us back to the ship, at first, the tour guide did not want to take us from the Palace back to the ship, but the, grudgingly agreed to do it. Read Less

We were recently on a Viking Ocean Cruise, but could not get a Viking excursion that we wanted. So one of the people in our party found a private tour with Ante Batarelo, We asked for the same agenda as the Viking excursion. When Ante met us at the dock, he suggested that we switch the morning and afternoon tours to avoid crowds this worked out very well. As we were leaving Diocletian's Palace, crowds were arriving. Because road work near Krka Falls would require us to walk more, Ante suggested we take a boat. Again, this worked out very well. We saw people walking along the road as we passed by. I would highly recommend Ante Batarelo. Read Less

We were lucky not have to tender as had been expected. We took a ship's tour to Solarna and Trogir. Solarna was a set of old Roman ruins (not great) and Trogir another mediaeval town – in fairness quite pleasant. It was very hot and crowded so we passed on walking round Split though the main sights did seem to be close to the dock. Read Less

We took a guided tour round Split ((on foot) and the guide was most knowledgeable. We had an hour to spend in Split when the tour had finished. We were then taken by coach to a lovely little town an hour away and were taken on a boat ride down the Gorge. After what was a delightful boat trip we stopped and were given traditional lunch of bean soup, chicken, potatoes and then dinky donuts all washed down with red/white wine. Very good trip and very good value. Read Less

The guide Monica was excellent but the driver wasn't that great. Harsh breaking, answering calls whilst driving was a downer. There was half an hour walking tour which was excellent and then the bus tour which was average as you're given a digital device which plays prerecorded information that is controlled by the guide who did mess up at times.
