Jelena was just great and fully responded to our questions and interests. She also gave us a lot of information in addition to the historical data and gave us a picture of the inhabitants. The 1 1/2 hours flew by and she has a great way of conveying facts with humor and examples. We were very happy :-) thank you Jelena!!!

Our day in Split became unforgettable with our city tour by Bernarda. She guided us wonderfully through the city and was able to explain a lot to us. We liked it very much. In addition, she gave us tips for restaurants and bars that we immediately liked to visit.

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.
