TOUR GUIDE VS. TOUR LEADER
Tour Guide: 
Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction in which he or she is guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves the group at the end of the tour, they do not travel with the group. 
 
Tour Leader: 
An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides in each stop. A tour leader may provide general guidance around a city or village, and offer information on the place visited on the bus, however they are not required to have specific knowledge on art, architecture, or history. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and if caught doing so, can be fined. 
 
Please note: Tour leaders/guides are not a standard inclusion in all travel offers. Tour leaders/guides will only be made available when particularly required to enhance the experience of the destination featured. 
 
CLIMATE & AVERAGE TEMPERATURES
May
May in Croatia is when temperatures really begin to climb and the summer season truly begins. The town and ports are filling up with tourists, restaurants and bars are alive, museums open and extend their hours, and the weather triumphs it all by warming up considerably.
Average temperatures reach a very pleasant high of around 21°C and reach a low of a very manageable 11°C.
  
June
The weather in Croatia in June is one of the warmest you’ll experience. Daily average temperatures in June are about 22°C, highs reaching up to 27°C and lows plummeting to about 16°C. Over the course of the month, the hours of sunshine remain pretty constant, with an average of about 15 hours per day.
  
July
July in Croatia is hot and dry, and typically the hottest month of the year with average daily temperatures reaching around 28°C and only go as low as 16°C. 
  
August
August in Croatia is hot and dry, and typically the hottest month of the year with average daily temperatures reaching around 28°C and only go as low as 16°C. 
  
September
September is still very warm, with the average daily temperature in September ranging from 16-19°C, the highest still a lovely 24°C, and the lowest temperature is only around 13°C.

October’s average daily temperature is about 18°C over the course of the month, with highs decreasing from 22°C to 18°C and lows from 15°C to 12°C. Of course with temperature being lower at night, it would be wise to pack a few items such as a light jacket just in case.
