Universal Travel System (UTS) has created a luxury tour to Croatia and the Dalmatian Coast that features all six UNESCO World Heritage Monuments. Also included is the best preserved Roman amphitheater in the world in city of Pula, which is not under UNESCO protection. Local professors and scholars are recruited as guides to provide an historical perspective on each of the sites. Croatia’s turbulent and rich history has left many traces, symbols and reminders on its past. The small country today has more UNESCO monuments than any other country in the world. Croatia also has the only UNESCO natural monument; Plitvice Lakes.
The tour features these UNESCO monuments:
- Porec (Euphrasian Basilica Complex)
- Sibenik (St. James Cathedral)
- Plitvice (National Park Plitvice)
- Trogir (Old city of Trogir)
- Split (Diocletian Palace Complex) and of course
- Dubrovnik (Old City of Dubrovnik)
The 14-day tour itinerary also includes Zagreb, Bled, Ljubljana, Lipica, Postojna Caves, (in Slovenia), picturesque Rovinj and the charming village of Opatija.
This tour starts by picking up clients by limo at their home to take them to their departure airport for their overseas flight. The limo is supplied with chilled water, a bottle of Champagne and delicious hors d’oeuvres. The driver will collect the luggage at the client’s home. UTS staff will be on hand at the airport to check in the luggage and clients at their specified airline and will handle their bags during the entire trip. Express baggage and check-in service is provided at hotels. Upon arrival at the hotel, clients will be escorted directly to their reserved rooms.
A Personal Tour Director (PTD) is assigned for the duration of trip to oversee handling. Clients are driven around for sightseeing in private shiny limos. Various excursions, visits to museums and galleries are scheduled with the assistance of private guides and interpreters. Breakfasts are served in bed, lunch and dinner open a la carte dining; clients may choose the restaurant and order anything on the menu. Meals are preceded with cocktails and aperitifs. After dinner there is usually a concert, opera or some kind of live show and entertainment. There are Old Europe’s traditional “digestifs” or good-night drinks before retiring. But wait! This is not all. High tea in the afternoon is provided to soothe and relax. This kind of pampering, and more, is repeated every day of the tour.
