Beginning Your Journey​

Start in Albania, a secret gem in Europe boasting snowy mountains, fortress towns and sunny Adriatic beaches all in one place. Travel through Montenegro to beautiful Croatia, “the pearl of the Adriatic” because of its well-preserved medieval towns set against the sapphire blue sea. See the most beautiful natural park with thundering waterfalls at Plitvice Lakes, then finish up in Slovenia with ancient castles and plenty of markets to browse!

First Steps In Albania​

Albania’s recently opened doors to tourists make it an enigma within Europe and a definite must-visit. Mountains, fortress towns, and Adriatic beaches were closed to tourists until 1991, and a quarter of a century later, word still hasn’t spread about Albania’s stunning scenery! A lack of tourists and a great economy where everything is pretty cheap make Albania the perfect place to begin your journey.

Your Luxurious Hotels

If you like luxurious accommodation that’s in the heart of each destination then you’ll love the first class accommodation included on this trip. You’ll be staying at 4 star hotels across Europe that are so beautiful you’ll be tempted not to leave your room for the entire tour. Enjoy accommodation at Hotel Argosy in Dubrovnik, located right on the picturesque Babin Kuk peninsula with sea views, and at the Grand Hotel Toplice in Bled, located right on the lake shores with breathtaking views of the Alps and castles.

No matter where you go with Gate 1, every hotel boasts a medium sized room with all the essentials – air conditioning, Wi-Fi, and a large flat screen TV for your enjoyment. Call home on the telephone to gush about the accommodation, or treat yourself to something from the minibar before walking about the city centre, just a few minutes away from your hotel.

First Class Escorted Tour

Accompanied by Gate 1’s world class tour guides, you’ll see the best sites in every destination with a knowledgeable local guide. On your very first day you’ll begin exploring, starting with Tirana, the centre of culture, economics and politics of the country. Take a walking tour through Skanderberg Square, the bustling centre of the city, and explore Albania’s recent and ancient history. In Croatia you’ll visit Plitvice Lakes National Park, one of the most beautiful natural sights in Europe with its primeval forests, thundering waterfalls and 16 interconnected lakes.

It’s impossible to list all the incredible things your tour guide will show you, so bring your camera to remember every magnificent monument! You’ll also be able to ask as many questions as you please, your tour guide will be able to answer anything plus offer knowledge that only a local would know.

Wining & Dining

There are plenty of dining options across Europe, so we provide a range of meals across your itinerary for you to enjoy. Start with breakfast in Dubrovnik at your hotel and end the day with a 3-course Dalmatian cuisine at the family-run Epetium restaurant near Split, if that tickles your taste buds. Try some Black Risotto almost anywhere in Croatia – darkened by squid ink and served with shellfish like clams and mussels. You never know what’s on offer, so chat with your tour manager for their recommendations – they know the most popular, authentic, and unique dining experiences on offer. 

The restaurants included in your itinerary have been tried and tested by previous Gate 1 travellers, and the optional night-time tours provide a culinary experience you might not otherwise get to enjoy. Rest assured that we do everything in our power to offer you the best of the best on tour!

Croatia & Slovenia Reviews

It was sensational! The scenery was spectacular, the tour leader and individual tour guides were amazing. Their knowledge, expertise and sense of humor was exceptional. The way everything was organised was faultless.
Thank you once again to everyone involved in making this trip a truly wonderful and memorable holiday.

This was yet another fun and exciting vacation from Gate 1 Travel in what were some of the most scenic, must-see destinations in Europe. I had an absolute blast walking the ancient walls of Dubrovnik, trekking the paths of Plitvice Lakes, and riding the electric train through the Postojna Caves. This tour was made even more special by our outstanding tour guide Tina, who had a wealth of knowledge about the region and kept us entertained with her singing, stories, and humor. I will enthusiastically recommend Gate 1 Travel to anyone who may ask.

My trip was fantastic! The trip exceeded every expectation I had. Croatia/Slovenia were amazing and our tour guide Sandy was fabulous. I can't say enough about Gate 1 Travel and the attention to detail that was provided. I will definitely be booking more trips with them in the future.
