Croatia Only Tours

The CroatiaOnly Experience

Our Experience for You...

When you travel with CroatiaOnly, everything is arranged to deliver a personal experience. Unlike many other tours, CroatiaOnly strives to provide a 'home away from home' feeling for our guests.

1. You are not living out of a suitcase and constantly on the move. You ARE settling in to your “home” in Croatia and unpacking once.

2. You will be staying at a 'pension' which is what we call our lodgings. You ARE staying in a home that has been run as a guest house for several generations of Croatians - you are NOT staying in a anonymous hotel.

3. You will have an authentic, real life experience, not a windshield tour. You will have some of your meals with locals in their own homes eating food from their gardens, grown and prepared by the owners.


4. Local guides give you an in-depth, educational experience about their cities... Split, Dubrovnik, Trogir. Historical information is brought to you along with their own experiences.

5. On the 13 day tour, you are afforded 3 Free Days to explore on your own, have a leisurely meal in a local restaurant on the waterfront or just sit on your terrace and soak up the sun, listen to the water lapping the shore and having your favorite beverage.

Croatia only is a Family owned and operated tour company. The business is operated out of Seattle, Washington and Bette and Joe Mandich spend about 5 months of the year living in Croatia.

Joe was born in Croatia and educated at the U.S. Naval Academy and one of the highlights of each trip is when Joe leads a discussion and presentation about Croatia and the history of the region. 

The result is truly a personal connection when you travel with Croatia Only.
