The Experience!

To experience a place means learning about its history, heritage, lifestyle, spirit, and state of mind. To do it, there is no better way but to be directed, or accompanied by a well-informed local. It's not about being armed with facts, but it's a willingness to give you an insight into what it is like to live in a place you have visited. As a licensed tour guide, journalist and blogger, born and raised in Dalmatia, and deeply in love with its land, people and way of life, me and my family can provide you with such experience.

Split and Dalmatia - a region which occupies most of Croatia's coast and islands - is by all means a place worth experiencing.

History? It's amazing, dating back to ancient Greek and Roman times, with layers of all following eras.

Heritage? Check out our monuments, old towns, and fortresses, with no less than seven sites from UNESCO's World Heritage List.

Nature? It has everything, from national parks, and hiking and walking spots in the hinterland to one of the most beautiful coasts and islands in the world.

Present? It's about dining, wine, fun, sipping coffee in narrow alleys or on waterfronts of historical cities and towns, and observing life. Also, it's about enjoying the hilltop views, relaxing at the river banks or by the sea.

See you in Dalmatia!



My name is Ivica Profaca, living in Split, Croatia. I am a licensed guide for Split-Dalmatian and Šibenik-Knin Counties in Croatia and a member of the Association of Tourist Guides Split.

Cardo Tours is a small, family-operated travel agency that can provide you with tailor-made day trips created to your taste, interests and time. Our aim is not to bring you from point A to point B, but to make you feel like a part of this region, its people and its heritage.

Our tours include the priceless heritage of Split, from Roman Emperor Diocletian's era to the present day. We can take you to other towns and spots in Dalmatia like Trogir, Šibenik, Hvar, etc. We also offer walking and driving tours for families with children, theme tours like the Jewish heritage of Split, visiting UNESCO World Heritage sites and hiking tours. We can show you underestimated natural and historical treasure of the Dalmatian hinterland, with its fortresses, hills, and rivers.

What you see in the Our Tours section of this website is just a sample, feel free to ask about destinations you want to visit, and we will do all we can to make your wishes come true!
