What people are saying about Diocletian's Palace

We wanted to see the Palace and decided to book the Game of Thrones tour as we have both watched the programme and have also seen filming locations in Dubrovnik and Malta. We thought this tour would add an extra element to the Palace tour. Our guide Dean was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable and was keen to answer our questions. Dean showed us some of the locations, reminding us of the storyline with each photo and showed us the exact locations. Once inside the palace we saw where the dragons had been kept and the tour under the palace was fascinating. I did see other people wandering around alone who looked bored and had no clue what they were looking at. To experience the palace tour with a guide is essential to learn about the history.

Jelena is such a sweetheart. Unfortunately, we only had 3 hours until our last ferry left for Solta, but she organized it in such a committed and professional manner that we would have liked more time with her. Her German was so great and the food was a great experience. She even jogs with us to the ferry and we would certainly have thrown herself in front of it before it would have started without us. As always, these private tours are a treasure of our memories that we don't want to miss. But please estimate 4 hours minimum for the experience and charge a little more money for it. It's a great investment for that.

Fantastic trip. Had over an hour at the waterfalls so had time to swim. Mostar was very scenic and had a fantastic guide who gave the right amount of information in a humorous way. Plenty of freebtume to eat and get bargains in the old town of Mostar. Definately would recommend this trip

Franco was an excellent guide. He was very knowledgeable about the city but also sprinkled in some humor and kept the tour fun. Highly recommend on the front end of your trip to split!

Really fun and exciting day out and the guides were great people
