Hvar Hidden Gems Tour

Hvar, Croatia

Experience hosted by Ante

2 hours
Includes drinks, transportation
Up to 8 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

Our meeting point is in Hvar town.
Our first stop is at Malo Grablje, abandoned (ghost) village from 16th century....people left this village because of wine disease and now it is a perfect example of the nature dominating over old stone houses and buildings...
We continue to Velo Grablje, neighbour village, where the story of lavender started, 80 years ago and saved the locals from the poverty...
Road takes us on the top of the island where we can see dry stone walls and terraces of lavender fields., where you can imagine how hard labour meets hard nature...stoping for pictures along the way. Great spot for seeing both sides of the island and amazing view to the Adriatic and the surrounding area.
We will finish our tour at the Napoleon castle, that was built by his army at the beggining of 19th century, where you can enjoy the best view and one of the most amazing sunsets of your life..

It is fascinating how one can become so passionate about a territory. Hvar is not a small island and putting effort into getting to know its in's and out's definitely showed in this experience. Zoran was amazing, very knowledgeable and personable all around. You've got to take the tour in order to get a deeper understanding of the island and its beautiful in and out and kind people.

We didn't do the tour with Ante but with Zoran (they work both for the same company Kvia Tours). Zoran is a nice and local guide, we really enjoyed our tour in Hvar with him. We really recommend him to discover the Island of Hvar. Nick & Suh

Our tour was with the guide Zoran and it was very much appreciated. you get a picture of ancient Hvar and the history nearby. a good complement to the tourist town of Hvar. It's a tour that's great if you like history. I recommend!

If you enjoy escaping from the tourists in town and enjoy an alternative experience learning about the lives of local people past and present , definitely go on this tour. We were taken to an abandoned village and drove along roads to amazing views of Hvar. Interesting, informative and fun!

This tour was perfect for a quick tour around island's hidden spots. Ante was great at communicating with us beforehand. Zoran was our guide and we really enjoyed him and his stories. I would highly suggest going on this tour while you're visiting Hvar.

We had a great time visiting the abandoned villages of Hvar. Our guide Zoran was very professional, who shared insights and stories of a local which we really enjoyed. The vehicle was clean and comfortable. Zoran showed us places which we wouldn’t have found on our own, which was the highlight of our trip in Hvar.
