Why M10? - The difference
There are so many cycling and adventure travel companies offering tours in Croatia, so why should you choose Meridien Ten?
Meridien Ten Company is focused on personalized services and tours tailored to the needs of each client! The way that we see travel business is quite simple; each of our guests has to be treated same as how we would like to be treated when on holidays in a new and unknown destination.
Our company and team constantly seek to exceed customer’s expectations; in terms of our service, Croatian attractiveness and the service provided!
We know how it feels to travel to the unknown destination, as we are travellers ourselves! We are here to show you the best Croatia has to offer, in a unique, local and authentic way! We ride bikes, we love paddleboard surfing and windsurf, we hike and spend a lot of time outdoors. We love nature and good food! Our passion was channelled through professional way and now we make living out of it. All of Meridien Ten staff believes and shares same passion for authentic and local values and beauties of Croatia. Being environmental aware, we offer small group tours, where we minimize impact on locals and our nature, while in the same time maximise local experience and satisfaction of our guest.
Meridien Ten has enthusiastic, professional, fun and LOCAL guides! Our tour leaders did a lot of training (in Croatia and abroad) and Meridien Ten will not run trips if our guides are not available at certain date! We completely understand the meaning of holiday, where you want to relax and recharge your “batteries”. Great guide will deliver the “final touch” to the perfect holiday and guest satisfaction, and we like to believe our guides are capable to do so (at least all the feedbacks confirm that).
Since Meridien Ten provides tours for smaller groups our engaging and knowledgeable guides will take care of you while on our active tours, show you local culture and provide personal service to each client!
Our office team consists of young and enthusiastic people who take care of the logistics and handle all the pre and post tour services. During the season office is “online” and offering 24h support, whether you are on a self guided or guided bike tour, or just renting a bike! The team is always happy to help or suggest great dining place or secluded cove where you can have a swim. Office team is also responsible for custom and bespoke tour itinerary development.
With more than 15 years in cycle business we have finally found bikes, which work great for cycle touring in Croatia. Our fleet consist of approximately 250 custom build road, hybrid, tandem, children and e-bikes. We have carefully chosen components, which are lightweight and durable! Whether it is hybrid or road bike, each type comes in 7 different frame sizes and with adjustable stem, so we are quite sure we can make great fit to any person. All the hybrid bikes have triple chainring and wide gear range so you will be able to climb those hills (and there are few on Dalmatian Islands). Road bikes have 2x11 gear system with bigger cassette, so hills are not a problem as well. For your comfort, we offer padded seats and several types of pedals. All of our bikes are equipped with pump, spare tube, tire levers and patch kit, lock, rear rack and cyclo computer. On our self guided trips you will receive small adjustable bag. We do have in our office different size panniers and handle bar bags. With each bike rental we can provide quality helmet, but always suggest to bring your own. Our bikes are serviced regularly by our mechanic, whether it was 1 or 30 day rental.
For all of you that never experienced Meridien Ten services please take a quick look below to realize the difference between traditional travel companies and us. We urge you to visit the reviews section on our web page to see the comments from our previous guests!
Our office team, local guides and local providers; whether it is a small adventure company from Vis, windsurf school in Bol, chef that combines traditional with modern style of cooking on Island Hvar, and of course our team, from Split, have big respect and love for Croatia and one of our missions is to represent and show the best Croatia has to offer in a true and authentic way!
Personal approach to each guest! As we do work really hard and believe you are as well, we are aware how important holidays are! We are very flexible and always make sure you have best possible time in Croatia – in accordance with your wishes and abilities!
Actually, another concern is that you are always having fun, so from breakfast until bed time there is always something going on. And it’s usually very amusing.
Our active holidays can be adjusted to suit your abilities. In Meridien Ten, cycling, surfing, sailing, dinning, and much more are part of our lifestyle, and we make sure you get overdose on the same ones.
24/7 vs traditional?
Meridien Ten offers support 24/7. Our guides do make sure you come safely to your daily destination, but also make sure you know about the places you are staying in, local traditions, great restaurants and cool bars and other activities you have available. We support and, in a way, try to protect traditional culture, as well as present it to you; dinner arranged only at the very best restaurants or ultimate local cultural experiences; guests regularly ask “how on earth did you find this place?!”
Back in our office in Split, our working hours do not stop when we close the office!
Quality and quantity vs cheap and cheerful?
Meridien Ten tours might cost only a fraction more than alternative adventure tours yet can offer twice of the experience! We do encourage small group travel in order to be able to spend time with each guest, not to devastate Croatia and not to have big impact on local scene and lifestyle. Traveling in small groups gives you a chance to experience many things which you cannot see while in tour bus and never to be rushed somewhere while you are having great time.
