We know that not everyone has a travel buddy, or, maybe you have a travel buddy but feel more comfortable traveling within a group. Therefore, we are thrilled to announce Trip Trotter Groups! Our first tour travels to the exquisite country of Croatia with day trips to Montenegro and Bosnia & Herzegovina. We noticed that there are many group sailing tours in Croatia, but few that travel to the most popular areas on land. Thus, we've created this exclusive small group tour that combines the best of the best of southern Croatia and its neighboring countries.
