What people are saying about Klis

Great experience with a great guide! I wanted to visit these 3 sites, but by public transport, in a single day, it's mission impossible... This excursion allows you to see everything, with a fully guided visit of Salona, one hour with the guide in Trogir and then two free hours, and finally a fully guided tour of Klis Fortress! With 10 degrees less, the day would have been perfect ^^
