Semi supported tours by Meridien Ten are the result of our vision to combine tours we already organize for many years (whether guided or self guided), with more support than on our self guided tours and less logistics than on our guided tours. These tours can be best described as tours where customers can travel at their own pace, tours which will give them enough time to experience local gastronomy, cultural attraction and other on-tour attractions. For activities which are more demanding and when there is need for a guide and support – it is provided!
These tours are very similar to self guided tours in several respects. For example, customers can travel at dates they prefer. They do not need to carry along their own luggage while cycling. Meridien Ten team takes care of that, as well as of accommodation, daily logistics, ferries, transfers and other details. When there is a need for a guide and support, Meridien Ten team will be there, but it will also be always “behind the scenes”, making sure logistics run smoothly and offer 24/7 support.
Customers can travel at their own pace, they can choose dining venues each night and in case they are not in the top form, they will still be able to get advantage of supported activities. In other words, when needed transfers will be organized. However, these tours do not offer full time guide.
In general Meridien Ten offers two types of semi-supported tours: hike & kayak and bike & kayak semi-supported tour along the Croatian islands and Dalmatian coast. On these tours customers can enjoy our easy walking suggestions, short and long bike rides as well as guided sea kayaking tours. But this is not the end of it. They can also enjoy in numerous swimming and snorkeling possibilities or sailing, if they want to spice their holiday in that way!
Of course, for those having special wishes regarding their vacation, Meridien Ten is ready to tailor made semi supported tours. This means that duration of customer’s holiday, type of accommodation (sail boat, yacht, hotel, luxury villa or cozy B&B), types of transport between the islands and various extra services can be combined in unique way for customers to experience a perfect holiday in Croatia.
These trips are ideal for our summer months – starting in June and ending sometime in September. Due to the heat, long distance cycling (more than 40 km daily) or hiking (more than 20km) can be exhausting and dangerous. With the small optional “help out” transfers and support you will enjoy more while traveling along the Adriatic coast and exploring our country.
