The sun-kissed eastern Adriatic
Combine lazy days at a four-star hotel on Croatia's beautiful Markaska Riviera with excursions to the one-time Roman capital, Split, the natural beauty of Krka National Park and the lovely islands of Korcula, Brac and Hvar.
Fly into Dubrovnik and meet your Tour Manager. A coach will be waiting to carry you from the airport to your hotel - the Bluesun Alga - in Tucepi, about four kilometres south of the seaside village of Markaska.
Today you're free to relax on the beach or by the pool, make the most of the hotel's facilities or gently explore your surroundings. Tucepi's gardens, and its bars, cafes and tavernas are close to hand, and the livelier streets of Markaska are just a short drive away.
After a coach trip along the coast, today we'll cross from Orebic to Korcula. Discover the fortifications, narrow streets and long history of the island's main town on a guided tour, which also includes entry to the beautiful cathedral, then simply relax and let local life flow about you until we return to Tucepi in the late afternoon.
Take a boat trip through the waterfalls, lakes and forested valleys of Krka National Park on today's optional excursion, floating gently upriver from the pretty harbour town of Skradin to the foot of the tumbling cascade at Skradinski.
Step back into history on today's included tour. Discover the ruined remains of Diocletian's imperial palace in Split, and explore the labyrinth of narrow streets and hidden courtyards that shelter behind the ancient walls of the island-town of Trogir.
Spend today relaxing on the beach or in your hotel.
Set sail into the blue waters of the Adriatic, today, as our final included excursion reveals the stunning beaches of Brac, Croatia's third largest island, and the vineyards and lavender fields of rocky Hvar. Your captain will host a traditional picnic lunch of fish aboard your boat.
Say good by to the hotel and its staff this morning as we return to Dubrovnik airport to catch your flight home.
The transfer time from the airport to your hotel is approximately three hours.
Hotel transfer times
We sometimes need to combine transfers to and from your hotel. We always try to keep any wait to a minimum, but you may be asked to wait at the airport for up to an hour, while other incoming flights arrive, before the transfer to your hotel. Similarly, we may need to transfer you back to the airport up to three hours before your flight home departs.

If you have notified us of any special requirements, please check that they have been noted and acknowledged. This is especially important with any dietary needs you may have.
The majority of our tours involve a certain amount of walking, including a short walk from the coach stop to the town, attraction or venue you're visiting. If you are bringing a wheelchair, please let us know at the time of booking so that appropriate arrangements can be made.
Occasionally, for operational reasons, we may have to change the order of the excursions on your holiday. The final day-by-day itinerary will be confirmed on your Final Travel Documents, which you will receive approximately three weeks prior to your departure.
Should circumstances require, we reserve the right to accommodate you in alternative hotels, of a similar standard, nearby. Full details of your hotels will be sent with your Final Travel Documents.
