Overview
Split Foodies Tour - A great overview of the city's history, sights, and sounds whilst focusing, though not exclusively, on its rich gastronomic tradition. The tour takes you to both Split's buzzing fish market and colourful vegetable market whilst passing through Diocletian's palace and learning about Split's fascinating history. You will get to sample a variety of local foods, oils, prosciutto, cheese, chocolate as we wander the streets if Split and meet some of the locals who produce it on this small group tour. You visit a local restaurant to try out four local Split dishes, lovingly prepared just for you, the oldest bakery in Split to try out some delicious pastries and the city's vibrant food markets. Ideal for those with limited time in Split. There are options that can meet almost any dietary restriction and you'll be enjoying a small group size of, at the most, 10 people.

We did the small group food tour and loved it. There was only us and one other couple and we did olive oil tasting, chocolate and wine/cheese/meat tasting. Maya gave us a good walking tour of Split Old town to start which was good background. Because there were only 4 of us

This was an excellent tour and we really enjoyed the experience - My husband and I were the only people on it. Gabrijela Terze was our guide and she was very knowledgeable about the area and we tasted many foods along the way including pastries, sweets, anchovies, prosciutto and

My sister and I took this tour on our first full day in Split with Gabrijela Terze. She was incredibly knowledgable, full of great advice, and clearly cares about sharing Croatian history and traditional foods. Throughout our week stay, we have gone to every restaurant and cafe

We booked our tour months in advance. It was billed as a food tour- it was not a food tour. We received no information about the meeting place, because they were supposed to pick us up at the cruise dock. Instead at the last minute we received an email telling us we had to

Thank you for taking the time to give us a review of your visit with us. We are so sorry that you were disappointed with your experience of the food tour. Unfortunately things got off to a bad start with the expectation that you would be on a food cruise, which is not what we offer and we don’t advertise this service. Our guide took you to the markets because they form such an integral part of food history in Split and did offer you some tastings there, but I understand that you were happy with just a pastry. The chocolate store too, is very much part of Split’s food history. Your point about stopping in more of the konobas is a valid one and we are changing that aspect of the tour. Best regards

After walking aimlessly through the Old Town of Split I came across many walking tour companies. I am so glad I chose Gecko Tours and with perfect timing as the next tour started within 10 mins. I was looking for a personalized tour not a tour in which you have to wear a
