Itinerary

Expand All
Day 1: Opatija
Location: Opatija, Krk
Meals Included: Lunch

Saturday. Opatija - Krk. Welcome to Opatija in northern Croatia. We set sail at 13:00 and lunch is included onboard. We sail first to Krk, which is the largest of all the Croatian islands. We stop for a swim in the crystal clear sea en route to the harbour at Krk town, where we spend the night. The town is a vibrant one, with loads of great restaurants and bars to enjoy. There are also lots of secluded bays and beaches to discover along the coast.

Day 2: Romantic Rab
Location: Krk, Rab
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch

Krk - Rab. Departing Krk, we head to Rab, an island just off the coast. Rab is known as the "Island of Love" and we'll enjoy a guided tour of the romantic Rab town. Admire Romanesque churches, historic stone walls and ancient streets. You will see many artists working outside in the street, and we enjoy an included tasting of the local delicacy: a cake with a secret recipe known as Rapska torta. If the weather is good, you may wish to walk to the top of Kamenjak Hill to watch a beautiful sunset.

Day 3: Exploring Historic Zadar
Location: Rab, Zadar
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch

Rab - Zadar. Departing Rab, we pass the unusual island of Pag and stop for a swim at the tiny island of Maun. Arriving into Zadar, we join an included guided tour. Zadar is the centre of this region and the oldest continuously inhabited city in Croatia. Marvel at the historic Roman Forum, the medieval basilica of Saint Donatus and the imposing city walls, which date back to the 16th century. The waterfront is a great place to spend this evening, so we recommend you head out for a meal and wander down to the Zadar Sea Organ to listen to the unique sounds it produces.

Day 4: Zadar
Location: Zadar, Molat
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Zadar - Molat or Olib. Today's schedule is flexible, as we begin our northbound journey back to Opatija. We will sail to the islands of either Molat or Olib, depending on which has room for us at the harbour! These islands are close together and fairly similar, both boasting peace and serenity. They are both sparsely inhabited so you could take a nice walk along the coast before our included Captain's Dinner onboard this evening.

Day 5: Exploring Losinj
Location: Molat, Ilovik, Lošinj
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch

Molat or Olib - Ilovik - Mali Losinj. Enjoy breakfast and a swim before we set sail once again for Ilovik, whch is home to just a few hundred people. After a quick stop here, we continue to Losinj. Known for its lush pine forests and long days of sunshine, Losinj is one of the most popular destinations in the northern Adriatic. Docking at the town of Mali Losinj, the rest of the day is free to wander along the waterfront or head to nearby Veli Losinj.

Day 6: The Nature Of Cres
Location: Lošinj, Cres
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch

Mali Losinj - Cres. Today we have a short sail to Cres. This island used to be connected to Mali Losinj, but the Romans separated the two by digging a narrow channel. Cres town is a typical medieval settlement, with narrow streets and beautiful stone architecture. And the wider landscape of Cres is dotted with olive groves, vineyards, and oak forests. There is time for you to head out and explore as you wish.

Day 7: Opatija Sightseeing
Location: Cres, Opatija
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch

Cres - Opatija. Today is our last day of sailing as we make our return to Opatija. The famous Opatija Riviera is best seen from the sea, and we'll take in the best possible views. Arriving in Opatija after lunch, enjoy an included tour of Opatija. For dinner, why not head to the nearby village of Volosko, home to some of the best fish restaurants in the country? Back onboard, we'll enjoy a farewell party.

Day 8: Opatija
Location: Opatija

Wonderful experience

05-Jan-2023

Jamal is our tour guide. Right from the start, he created a group chat in whatsapp and if any issues to make sure we contact him. He was on the ball with every issue thrown at him. Luggage being left behind, stragglers wondered off in a different path, hotel room etc. He explains the various site along our route to give us a better understanding of the local cultures. We had a great time, thanks to Jamal.

Land of the Northern Lights 5 day tour of Iceland

10-Sep-2021

The Land of Northern Lights tour was a triumph! My tour of Southern Iceland was absolutely wonderful. The venues chosen, the timing allotted at each venue and the variety of things to experience was nearly perfect. Our guide, "Thor", was smart, amusing, full of history and anecdotal stories as well as being incredibly hospitable and helpful. This small group experience was my first, but not my last thanks to On the Go.

On The Go Tours Sri Lanka was an incredible experience that was made even better by our tour guide Akthar. He was incredibly knowledgeable about his country and he loved sharing it with us. The tour covers a wide range of activities so you can truly experience what Sri Lanka is all about. The beautiful 4-5 star hotels at the end of every day was an absolute bonus. Thanks for a great trip OTGT I’m sure this won’t be my last

King Tutankhamun 10 day tour of Egypt

16-Sep-2021

I have just returned from my tour with On The Go and it was an amazing trip! From arriving at the airport and meeting the OTG representative, everything was well organised and hassle free.  Our tour guide was Amir. He is awesome!! From the beginning he was so friendly and enthusiastic about showing us around Egypt, giving us loads of information at each place and time to explore ourselves. Learnt so much from him about this fascinating place, and he was always happy to answer more questions.   The trip itself was amazing. There's lots of travelling on this trip, but it's really not too bad, and the sights you see when you get to where you are going are worth it. I'm not a big fan of boats, but the Felluca ride across the Nile was pretty fun too.  On the first day I also did the optional tour of Cairo with Ahmed Helal - another excellent guide from OTG. It's worth doing this add on as you don't spend much time in Cairo, and you go to three very different places.  I'm so glad that I decided to do this trip. It was just ace.  If you're thinking about it too, you should probably just book it. And hopefully you get Amir as your guide.

TOTALLY MOROCCO We booked a 9 day tour of Morocco visiting many main cities and places of interest. The coach was very comfortable and we felt safe with the driver Suliman. The guide was Hicham Touraouine and he was fantastic. He spoke perfect English as well as French, Arabic and Berber. He was so kind and considerate and made a good tour great. We particularly enjoyed ‘glamming in the Sahara Desert. So much to see and do and great food and company. We would definitely use On The Go Tours again, especially if Hicham was the guide.

28-Sep-2023

Gallipoli tour. The guide was awesome. Everything went like clockwork.. My complaint is that you expect 4 people to cramp together on the back seat of the van for 4 hours. That is poverty travel. Not really acceptable for the price paid. So uncomfortable. If was to do this trip again I'd just rent a car. Although the guide was amazing, but that's 3 hours of the trip.

27-Dec-2023

Terrible tour of India. For some reason On the Go hadn't realised that my room mate had booked her own room for the first night of tour. So the hotel in Delhi had tried to put me in her room after midnight, by wheeling in an extra bed. She went Crazy!! I then had to sit in hotel reception for hours. While the tour guide said he couldn't find me a room. Throughout the tour the guide consistently ask me and my room mate for money for my room, causing more friction between us. Don't book with this company had the worst experience ever. Go with Intrepid or G Adventure

09-Aug-2023

I had used them once before and loved them. I decided to try them again for a Baltic tour not knowing that they put me on another Tour group- Baltic vision. Loved that tour but was not impressed they marked up the cost for me over 100%. I understand taking some for yourself because of paperwork, but over double the cost everyone else paid on the tour. Just double check before you book with them that you’re not over paying.

I booked three tours with...

19-Aug-2023

I booked three tours with this agency. While the first two experiences were very nice, with well-thought-out itineraries and knowledgeable guides, the third tour was an absolute nightmare for us. Due to the unavailability of an hotel from the trip notes, the agency opted to replace it with another they claimed was "similar." To our dismay, this alternative was nothing short of a decrepit, filthy establishment that threatened to ruin our entire safari experience in South Africa. But the fiasco didn't end there. This so-called hotel began proposing and organizing activities starkly different from what we were promised in the trip notes, together with an awful services of their guides and vehicles. And when this disaster struck and we desperately needed their support? The agency ghosted us. It took them an entire day to respond, and when they did, they simply shrugged off our concerns, asserting it was too late to fix anything, even though three nights of our trip were still ahead. The level of unprofessionalism was staggering. Forced to salvage our experience, we took matters into our own hands, leaving that awful place to book another hotel and activities for the remainder of our trip—all at my own expense. Based on my experience, I suggest travelers to think twice before considering this agency. Seek out reputable companies known for their commitment to customer service and integrity.
