    hey guys, if you haven’t already booked I would probably recomend doing Sail Croatia instead – its exactly the same tour (run by the same people) but about $400 cheaper. I did this contiki tour and it’s awesome fun but I felt a bit annoyed when I found out how much we got ripped off

    We did already book, but they had a special on at the time so we saved more than enough to make up for the 400. Thanks for the heads up though

    Hello Jacob,
    My friend and I are doing this tour also…coming from Los Angeles…what about yourself/

    We’re coming from Toronto, Canada. We’re going to be in Split a day earlier than the tour calls for and staying a couple blocks away from the hotel we’re all staying for the first night before we take off sailing. We’re staying a extra night when we arrive back in split after sailing too. Have you and your friend booked flights yet?

    Yes, we’ve booked, but we’ll actually be coming from Scandinavia and Rome prior to Split. We arrive around 7 PM on the 7th.

    Hey Jacob. My sister and I will be taking this same cruise and will be arriving in Split two days early and leaving two days after. I have been looking around for accommodations that would stay within our budget and was wondering if you had any suggestions seeing as you and your wife had already booked one??

    Hey LDC sorry I for some reason only saw your post now. We’re booked into HOTEL GAJETA, it was a decent price for the accomodations, proximatey to the water, and to the hotel I believe Contiki puts us on for friday night. I found it on HOTEL.COM. You can search hotels for Split Crotia, then when it comes up wtih a list, at the top right corner just under the website’s red banner there’s a link that says “show map”, and I found that to be really helpful in finding a place in our budget, and in the area we wanted.

    Hey Jacob! Thanks for the response! I have been trying to check out the FB group but the link isn’t working for me.. Any chance you could send me a friend request to the group through Facebook? My email is Thanks again!

    Hey LDC, I can’t invite you to the group without having you as a friend, so i sent you a request. As soon as I get it back I’ll add you onto the group. Do you know what boat you’re on? Apparently there’s two leaving on the same day

    Hey Jacob! I got your friend request. Sorry it took me so long. I’m not sure what boat I’m on.. I got my packet from contiki but couldn’t find anything that indicates which boat?
