Tourism as It Has Become: Meet the Instagram Friendly Hvar Selfie Tour

Total Croatia News

July 21, 2019 – A new tour to meet the needs of the Instagram generation – meet the Hvar Selfie Tour. What do we think?

Back in 1989, as a very naive 19-year-old, I bought a one-way ticket to Caracas to discover South America and ‘find myself.’ South America was incredible, although I am still searching for me. 

I didn’t take a camera. 

I have SO many memories of that trip etched in my mind, as though they happened yesterday. Sights, sounds, smells. Walking an old 85-km Inca Trail in Bolivia with a Swiss guy was three of the best days I ever had on the road. Incredible. 

But I have no photos, apart from those in my head. And there, there are many. 

Times change, and so do tourism habits. I know I am getting old and cranky, and apologies for that, but it seems to me that these days getting the perfect picture to put on Instagram is way more important than taking away a memory which will live in your head forever. 

It is not a criticism, just the reality of the changing world we live in. Google is only 20 years old, and I spent 30 years in a world without, while this is all my kids have ever known. I never use Instagram, but again, it is all my kids have ever known. 

So what to do if you are in tourism? Focus on the theme of the Mediterranean as It Once Was, or embrace the change?

Meet the Hvar Selfie Tour. Now with 16 catamarans a day from Split to Hvar Town, you can tick Hvar off your bucket list. Have your picture taken in all the best places in 2 hours and then head back to Split. This is also good for the numbers, as it will make passenger numbers on the catamarans higher.

It even comes with a clever hashtag #forthegram (For is the local dialect version of Hvar).

Here is what is on offer. 

Private photo-themed tour with a driver-guide to the most beautiful spots of the island, for the perfect Instagram, Facebook or family album photos.
