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.

This walking tour was so much fun and very informative. Our guide was very knowledgeable and sweet. She took us around all of old town. After the tour I felt like I could find my way around the city!

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.

Totally recommended for any tourist, Ana was very nice, she would tell you everything from the point of view of someone from Croatia, which is something very positive.

The guide knew a tremendous amount of information. We greatly enjoyed this tour.
