Secret Dalmatia

We are a group of enthusiastic and passionate professionals. Dedicated to presenting the incredible heritage of our country to the world, in our tours and programs, we try to offer as much as Croatia can give. Our goal is to satisfy your curiosity by designing uniquely creative vacations and to provide first-class service whether it's finding the perfect guide or the perfect villa.

Secret Dalmatia was started in 2005 by Alan, as a result of his lifelong intent to reveal the Croatian heritage to the world. An expert team of travel designers, today Secret Dalmatia introduces remote locations in our region to the travel map and presents the famous jewels in a new manner. Our guests get insight into unique identities of these places through original, and often exclusive, tours.

Several of our offspring projects have proven visionary. Culinary Croatia was the first food and wine travel website in the region. Our Luxury Croatian Villas site was the first collection of ultimately luxurious villas in Croatia and still remains one of the most exclusive ones. Over time, we have made our way into the neighboring region and enjoy welcoming our guests anywhere in the Balkans.

If you are ready to truly experience Croatia, Slovenia, Montenegro and other countries in the region, we're happy to help!

We are now home from the most amazing trip to Croatia! Our sincere thanks to Ivana and Jelena for planning the perfect trip for our family.The task they had was not an easy one, having to consider all of our interests and varying ages and energy levels. The communication during planning was so easy with them responding quickly via email. They came up with an itinerary that was flawless and combined plenty of land and water activities. So delighted you helped rework the program to include two days on the boats so we could experience smaller islands and swim in the sea! ALL of the tour guides (Maris, Anna, Dom), drivers (Steve), hotels, restaurants were top notch. Everyone was where they were supposed to be when they were promised making the trip so effortless. We especially like the special trips planned such as the day with Mario and his family and their winery! What an experience ! Going to the fish/butcher/fresh markets with Tatiana and listening to music while we each worked at preparing the delicious meal with her! Love her and her husband and their lovely home!! Ivana, thanks for arranging the birthday cake with Stuart! You two were very sneaky!!! While I chickened out of the canyoning trip (and glad I did) the rest of the family said it was outstanding in every way. I also want to thank Ivana for being available to us while we on the trip to update us and answer any question. We already miss Croatia! My highest recommendations to your outstanding company!
