Our tour guide was wonderful! He met with us very last minute and waited when we were late (the meeting instructions were not the most clear). He was extremely knowledgeable on much of the history of the area. We were a little nervous because my friend had just taken a history class on this region and we hoped he could give us more information, and he was able to do just that! He had an answer for every single question we had. He even went well past the time of the scheduled tour because we had so much to talk about. I highly recommend this company and this guide!

Great value, interesting and informative tour. Tanya really brought the history of Split to life and it was an excellent introduction to the city on our first day. Really helped us decide what we should go back and look at in more detail later as well as providing great tips for local shops and restaurants and typical Croatian cuisine to order in them.

This tour is a must do in Croatia. From the minute you get on the boat you will be amazed at the stunning scenery. The national park is just beautiful, waterfalls after waterfalls. Our guide was professional, friendly and fun. I would definitely recommend this tour, it’s great value for money

Ivan was an amazing guide! His tour was informative, interesting and a filled with humour. I particularly enjoyed his passion for history and this thought provoking opinions about the Diocletian's Palace being a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I'd highly recommend his tour!
