Superb in Every way

The Croatia bike trip was simply outstanding. First and foremost, we could not have gotten better guides from Croatia to show us the islands of Hvar and Brac. The culture, the scenery, the comraderie could not have been better. Plus we learned how to ascend and descend rather large hills! Would absolutely do it again.


Croatia: The Dalmatian Islands

Great Experience!

This was an absolutely delightful experience. I am very impressed with VBT's way of supporting the local economy by hiring local guides, and setting up dinners with locals. Our hotels were great, the guides were wonderful, and i learned so much about local culture and history. Our guides, Mario and Neven, are just wonderful people and so helpful fun to be around.

Croatia: The Dalmatian Islands

Croatia did not disappoint!

This was our 3rd VBT trip and we loved exploring Crotia which included the pre and post trips. Staying on the Maritino was a great way to visit so many islands. The accommodations in Split and Dubrovnik were outstanding. Very thankful for the e-bike as the territory is quite hilly but spectacular rides. All three of our guides were excellent, each with their own distinct personalities that complimeneted each other. The only disappointment were the dinners on the Maritimo. Breakfast and lunch were great; however, I felt guilty not finishing the dinners which were often bland and/or repetitive with fish.

Croatia Bike & Boat: Split & the Dalmatian Islands by Yacht

A must for experienced VBT travelers

This was our third VBT trip and we chose the boat-biking combination as it appeals to us. The Dalmatian Islands were incredibly beautiful, weather perfect, grape-picking time biking through vineyards at the various islands. Roads were in mint condition, no potholes unlike home and although hilly spouse got competitive with the ebike. Aboard the vessel, the crew and the VBT leaders were wonderful and fulfilled our every wish. Great meals aboard the boat. In summary, this was the best biking tour ever. Croatia is so clean and friendly, a true gem for world travelers.

Croatia Bike & Boat: Split & the Dalmatian Islands, Aboard the Jadranska Kraljica

Croatia is a must-see

What's not to love!!? Spectacular weather (despite the forecast of rain), amazing guides who saw to our every need (Jelena and Mario), smooth sailing on a beautiful ship with an attentive crew, great biking (new bikes even!) on the islands with gorgeous views. It's a good thing we did as much biking as we did since the food was tasty and plentiful! September is definitely the perfect time to visit.

Exploring Croatia

Our self guided trip was fantastic! Terrific in country support provided by Andre made it easy to cycle along the beautiful Croatian roads and explore an amazing country. Great GPS!

Croatia: The Dalmatian Coast, Korčula & Dubrovnik


What an amazing trip! Every. Single. Day. somehow topped the next. Food, people, wine, history, biking, architecture, the Adriatic Sea, small seaside towns, countryside, and so much more - which we knew would all be incredible - exceeded expectations at every turn. Simply said, we cannot say enough good things about the experience we had during this trip. The local support (Andre) was awesome; incredibly helpful, always available, and super knowledgeable. Biking was a great way to see the country, and the app made it very easy to navigate around. Routes were thoughtfully laid out, traversing through beautiful backroads, and to quiet towns. Biking with a non-e-bike was a bit challenging given the hilly terrain, but was still a lot of fun. Hotels were great - some super nice, others quaint - and the flights purchased by VBT maybe could have been a little more direct, but they got us where we needed to be, without any unexpected headaches. Overall, we could not recommend this trip any stronger. It will not disappoint.
