Salona Klis and Trogir Full Day Tour from Split
I booked this trip because my boyfriend is a huge history buff while admittedly that’s not really my thing. I enjoyed every minute of this tour! Our guide, Marin, was obviously very passionate about what he does and was extremely knowledgable. I would recommend to all for a fun day out of Split!

Private Tour of Klis fortress
Small fortress ruins near Split. Amazing views and interesting place to visit if you like history and would like to know more about Split. Lots off hills and rocks so take good shoes. We were on this tour as group of three and tour was great! There was pickup from our hotel, pays little extra if pickup is from outside Split. Quite nice history tour. Really recommend!

Salona Klis and Trogir Full Day Tour from Split
My partner and I did this tour last week with Gecko Tours and would highly recommend it. We both thoroughly enjoyed it and learnt so so much about the three sites and Croatia in general. Our tour guide, Marin, was amazing - we cannot praise him enough. He was extremely professional, knowledgeable about the local area and it’s history and answered any questions we had. He was very welcoming and engaging and also took the time to get to know us and take photos for us whenever we wanted. The tour was well paced and all three areas we visited were very interesting with some great views too - we are so glad we chose to do the tour as would not have found out any of the information (there’s few/no information boards etc. at the sites) otherwise. Overall a fantastic tour and guide - a must do if you’re in Split and want to find out more about the local history.

When to Get There

Klis Fortress is not overly crowded, so anytime is perfect for a visit. Klis is one of the fewGame of Thrones filming locations not jam-packed with tourists, but arrive early when the fortress first opens or later in the afternoon for the best chance of having the place to yourself. Go late in the day if you’re visiting during the winter for the chance to capture incredible panoramas of Split at sunset.
