Our guide, I don’t remember the spelling of her name but it sounded like Tanya. She was very professional and thorough and spiced up her narrative with great anecdotal stories. We were very pleased with our tour. One hour and a half was the perfect amount of time to keep the group’s attention.

Marko was an amazing tour guide, funny, knowledable and clearly passionate about Split. The tour was originally 1.5 hours long, but he had so much to say that we were there for 2+ hours. Extremly recommended.

The guide Anna was very friendly and explained to us much more many things that we expected, not just only about history but also a lot of cultural background about Croatia.

The guide was very nice, even though it ended up being just us two, he gave us a great tour. We really enjoyed.

Zrinka was a fabulous guide. She was very knowledgeable about the history and reconstruction of the Palace.
