Once a thriving port town during the Middle Ages, Hvar has since evolved into a chic resort town on the Dalmatian Riviera.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
