Tour Overview

This 8-day small ship sailing adventure takes us to the lesser-known islands, national parks and ancient walled cities of the north Dalmatian coast. Along the way we sail between the uninhabited islands of the Kornati archipelago, marvel at the tumbling cascades of Krka waterfalls and tick off more UNESCO old towns than we can wave a history book at - including the Venetian charms of Zadar, the Roman ruins of Split and the medieval beauty of Trogir. Awash with days cruising on sun-bleached decks, this escorted tour is the perfect balance of relaxation and discovery.

Itinerary

Expand All
Day 1
Location: Trogir

Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your flight to Split. On arrival, we transfer by coach to Trogir and board our ship.

Day 2
Location: Dalmatian coastal, Krka National Park, Skradin

Today we start our journey up the north Dalmatian coast. Where the Krka River flows into the Adriatic, we sail inland - weaving our way beneath steep limestone cliffs and craggy bays to the pretty town of Skradin. The jumping off point for Krka National Park, one of eight national parks in Croatia, Skradin is full of charm - with red-roofed houses, a harbour lined with bobbing sail boats and a backdrop of forested hills.
On arrival we go on a guided walk to the famous Krka waterfalls - a beautiful landscape of seven waterfalls and emerald-green lakes. Carved into the limestone karsts over millennia by the rushing waters of the Krka River, the area is considered a natural phenomenon and has UNESCO status. We stay moored overnight in Skradin.

Day 3
Location: Šibenik, Zadar

Sailing out of the channel, we stop at the historic town of Šibenik for a guided tour. Terracotta-topped houses, elegant Renaissance buildings and Gothic churches stack up on the hillside above the port. We stop to admire architectural gems, including the Bishop’s Palace, Ducal Palace and the town’s crowning and UNESCO-listed glory - the 15th-century cathedral. Surrounded by 71 carved faces and topped by a Renaissance dome that dominates the town’s romantic silhouette, the cathedral is thought to be the world’s largest stone-built church.
Continuing up the coast, we arrive in the ancient city of Zadar where we moor for the night. Someone who knew a few things about suspense and dramatic scenes, Alfred Hitchcock claimed that “Zadar has the most beautiful sunset in the world”.

Day 4
Location: Sea Gate, Telašćica Nature Park

Croatia’s longest continually occupied city openly tells the story of its past, as 16th-century Venetian fortifications sit alongside 9th-century Byzantine churches, ancient Roman forums, and 1960s modernist flats. Referred to as the ‘Dresden of the Adriatic’, the city was heavily bombed in WWII by the Allies - destroying up to 80% of its buildings. Many have been beautifully and sympathetically restored, but the architectural landscape of the city bears both its scars and its spirit. On a guided tour we weave our way through the streets of the old town, stopping to admire the Morska vrata (Sea Gate), the Romanesque-style St Chrysogonus Church and baroque St Simeon Church.
Back on board, we sail to the bay of Telascica on the island of Dugi Otok and dock overnight.

Day 5
Location: Kornati, Vodice, Zlarin

Today we set sail through the Kornati Islands - an archipelago of over 140 uninhabited desert-like islands and islets, peppered with caves and grottoes and wrapped in otherworldly blue waters.
Camera batteries fully exhausted, we sail to Vodice - a popular seaside town where we’ll briefly step ashore before cruising south to the island of Zlarin where we moor for the night. Home to famous coral filled waters and a patchwork interior of pine-clad hills, cypress forests and olive groves - the island has a permanent population of only around 300 people.

Day 6
Location: Split

On our way south to Split, we sail past picturesque Primošten. With crystal-clear waters, golden beaches and a sun-faded old town clinging to the coastline - Primošten is the manifestation of Mediterranean charm.
Arriving in Split, we step ashore for a guided walking tour. Croatia’s second largest city started out life in AD 295 as the retirement palace for the Roman emperor, Diocletian. UNESCO-listed Diocletian’s Palace still stands at the heart of the old town and houses some of the best-preserved Roman ruins in the world. It was also the inspiration for Robert Adam’s neoclassical architectural style.
Over the centuries, the city expanded into a maze of narrow medieval streets and Gothic archways scattered with Roman ruins. An architectural almanac of over 1,700 years of Venetian, Ottoman and Byzantine history - each ruling empire has left its mark on Split’s myriad architectural styles. There’s free time to wander Split’s waterfront or stroll to one of the city’s squares. We stay moored here tonight.

Day 7
Location: Trogir

Sailing back to where we started, we’ll arrive in Trogir. Linked by bridges to the mainland, this beautiful city’s wide seafront promenade of classic Venetian façades hides a maze-like old town of medieval streets dotted with churches and Renaissance buildings. We head out on a guided tour of the UNESCO-listed old town past Romanesque-style cathedrals, Venetian palaces and Benedictine monasteries, before returning to the ship for our final night and farewell dinner.

Day 8
Location: Trogir

We transfer to the airport for your return flight to the UK. Upon arrival, your Titan vehicle will be waiting for the journey home.

Exceptional trip and service by Titan

04-Oct-2022

Just returned from a fabulous tour of California & the golden west. It’s a full on tour with early starts but you see so much varied landscape from the ocean to the desert to Yosemite. My 2nd tour with Titan & my first solo tour. Thoroughly enjoyed it & met some great people. Grand Canyon was amazing would definitely recommend

Not merely a holiday, rather a memorable experience

29-Dec-2022

I have used other travel operators; this was the 1st time of touring with Titan----Israel, The Holy Land, from being collected from home and returned at the end of the holiday this was an unforgettable experience; the Tour Manager, a PhD Archaeology made the whole tour so interesting, he enlightened us throughout each day from an historical, archeological and Biblical viewpoint, bringing each site we visited come to life, and went over and above his remit escorting us for evening trips around the local area; thanks also to our very patient driver who coped with the very busy traffic; our hotels were good, professional and pleasant staff and really good food; I would recommend Titan to anyone looking for a fascinating tour with excellent efficient service thank you Titan nor just for a holiday for a memorable experience

We had a 2 weeks fantastic holiday arranged by Titan to Vietnam and Cambodia. Excellent,well organised Throughly enjoyed. Very good service by Vietnam Airlines, if you could afford book it in premium economy. We had a door to door service , picked up to airport from home and then dropped at home from airport, very convinient. Particular credit goes to our guide THI who is a caring, knolegeable, friendly down to earth man who made our trip a memorable one. I will not hesitate to book another holiday through Titan, their staff are friendly and helpful

We had a fantastic holiday...

26-May-2023

We had a fantastic holiday in Mississippi. Right from our chauffeur driven car picking us up to the return journey, we had a great time. The first hotel The Gaylord was amazing,absolutely huge,first class. The second The Double tree in Memphis unfortunately wasn't, the hotel was tired and very basic, the only plus was where it is situated in the centre of town, we were only there two nights so it wasn't to bad. The American Queen Steam Boat was first class all the way, thoroughly enjoyed the seven nights sailing down the Mississippi. The last hotel the Sheraton New Orleans was very comfortable too. Our guide throughout our time away was Laura Tuttle. she was amazing, very knowledgeable, and helpful. We also had a coach driver Guil, who went over and beyond to give you the best time. Other coach guides included Jim,who was so funny, and also very knowledgeably. Very entertaining throughout. The entire itinerary itinerary was very well thought out, included a huge variety of visits to different Interesting locations. Highly recommend using Titan for all your holiday destinations.

Perfect Italian Holiday…

31-Oct-2022

Just returned from a lovely week in Sorrento at the Grand Hotel Hermitage, we had an excellent guide Peter Macchristopher. we loved the hotel the staff were very nice especially in the dining rooms, the food was good and the room we had was really nice with a wonderful view. Altogether very good value holiday.we felt the trip to Pompei was very good also boat trip to Amalfi. I would recommend a walk to the village of St Agatha and a three hour ride on the Little Blue Train. Great fun.this can be booked at reception.

17-Oct-2023

Made a call about an upcoming trip regarding currency trying to get best advice, dont think the guy really understood, i had to lead him from info i had but got there in the end. Felt he could have been a bit more forthcoming than beating about. Shame as we had a previous good rep. Still looking forward to the trip though.

THE GREAT INDIAN RAIL JOURNEY!!!!...

03-Feb-2024

THE GREAT INDIAN RAIL JOURNEY!!!! (Dreadful) Avoid Titan and Saga at all costs. False descriptions of the tour and dreadful administration Returned to the UK last evening with a great sigh of relief after the worst holiday ever. 1. No block booking of airplane seats by Titan. (Husband and I sat apart on the long, overnight flight) 2. Unable to pre-book seats as Titan reference numbers did not coincide with anything. 3. Husband and I not sat together on any of the train journeys! In fact, on one occasion I was sat, alone on a sleeper carriage, a couple of carriages away from the rest of the group who were scattered over two or three carriages. Terrifying as a female to be sat alone in the midst of noisy locals!!!!! (Eventually the guide, Rahi, did come to rescue me and found a seat near the main group) 4. The guide, Rahi, would usually get off the coach and begin walking off without waiting for all the group to disembark the coach. (Spot the guide in the crowd!) 5. The guide, Rahi, refused to use any identifying prop such as a flag, hat, jacket or umbrella. Frightening to be in the manic crowds of Delhi and other crowded places to be unable to see the guide. 6. NO AUDIO HEADSET system on any excursion 7. The guide, Rahi, didn’t face the whole group, but stood sideways on and was unable to be heard by the majority. 8. OUTRAGEOUS behaviour by the guide when he enquired as to the whereabouts of my husband, whom I explained was in bed with an upset stomach and was feeling unwell. Rahi DID A REVERSE AIR PUNCH😳😳. This was in response to an earlier conversation when my husband had complained about our separate seating arrangements. TOTALLY UNPROFESSIONAL 9. When we arrived at Heathrow to find our aircraft seats were not allocated, we were advised to speak to our guide on arrival at Delhi. Rahi merely shrugged his shoulders and said he couldn’t do anything. 10. Tour pace incorrect - gruelling pace and only half a day relaxation due to the guide, Rahi, throwing in visits to shops and factories fie him to earn his commission as I head him tell another!!!!!!! 11. When off loaded the return flight due to illness, we were unable to get in contact with Titan/Saga. Left in Delhi without an hotel or flight!!! Found accommodation but didn’t remove shoes or clothes due to the poor standard. Final summary: Poor, disappointing, inefficient, incompetent, misleading, misrepresentations, are just a few words to describe.

Luxury VIP door to door...

17-Jul-2023

Luxury VIP door to door travel! I don't think so....Titan sent a Toyota Prius uber to Stanstead for a return journey to Newport, S Wales. 4 adults plus luggage! the experience was anything but luxurious. Contacted Titan on the return journey and since return. They simply didn't seem interested and offered us a £300 travel discount off a future trip! After a lot of emails they converted it to a £300 cash refund. Give it a lot of thought before booking !

Booked holiday to Austria late...

23-Jun-2023

Booked holiday to Austria late May. Great speech by tour manager about how good the salads are at the hotel. Funny 8 day tour no salad served.First night weak tasteless chicken soup. Normal tour 25 Saga had added their group to ours so now restaurant which normally sat 25 had 44. Problems for people with mobility issues. Hotel not geared up for people with mobility issues. After complaints food improved slightly. Holiday only saved by tour manager and drivers professional attitude to group For a holiday that cost over £3000 I would NEVER book a holiday with Titan/Saga again.
