Dubrovnik – Introductory Expedition to the Old City
The moment that you and your family arrive at Dubrovnik airport, your private driver will be waiting to transfer you and your family directly to your luxurious accommodation. After indulging in a bit of downtime to settle in and unpack, you will set out for the Old City, where you will spend an afternoon of exploring with your family on a child-friendly private tour. Your kids will love being unleashed in this pedestrian-only zone, which will satisfy their curiosities amid the labyrinth-like cobblestone streets and quirky alleyways. Adults who are fans of the wildly popular Game of Thrones will especially be thrilled to walk among actual scenes from their favorite episodes, like the Red Keep, the House of the Undying’s dungeon, and the Battle of Blackwater.
Once you and your family have completed your Old City tour, an exciting cable car ride awaits. As you are whisked away to the summit of Mount Srd on a short cable car ride, you will enjoy epic views of the Adriatic Sea and stunning cityscapes. Getting the chance to see Dubrovnik from this dazzling vantage point will be the highlight of the day, while the floor to ceiling windows give every member of the family, no matter what their heights or ages, a perfect view of everything before their eyes. After enjoying a lovely dinner at a local restaurant, you will return to your hotel via private transfer.

Your next stop will be Split, which is where you and your family will hop on a half-day cruise to explore the Islands of Brac and Solta. Then, after exploring the Old Town, including the awe-inspiring Diocletian’s Palace, you can soak up a day in the sun at nearby Marjan Park. You will then then venture to Plitvice National Park, where you and your family will step into a world that is fit for fairies and other mythical creatures, as this is a land of magical waterfalls, enchanted forest paths, and idyllic lakes, one that invites you to marvel over the fact that such an ethereal place actually exists. The theme of fairytale worlds will continue as you stop to spend a morning at the equally wondrous Rastoke Village, where working watermills and a charming main street will steal your hearts.
The final leg of your family adventure will take you to Croatia’s capital city to explore the enchanting Upper Town on your first exciting day. As the next few days unfold, you will hike up nearby Mount Medvednica, witness a world of wonder at the Technical Museum, and even have a private cooking class that will have you tasting and crafting delicious, local cuisine.
