Original: designed together with local chefs, winemakers, food experts, and gourmands.

Exclusive: many available only through Culinary Croatia.

Authentic: showcasing unique traditions, off-the-beaten-path locations, and characterful locals.

Comprehensive: each tour is a full package, inclusive of transfers, tickets, experiences, and guides.

Tailored: completely private tours to be customized to your group, agenda, dietary preferences, and wishes.  

Savory: we see that not one grain of salt is left to chance, as perfection is all about seasoning, is it not?
