What people are saying about Silver Gate, Split

This walking tour was excellent. Our guide was very knowledgeable and informative. She spoke loudly so all could hear (although I love when guides have headsets and microphones) and kept a good pace and constantly checked that "all were here." I was concerned about finding the starting point, but actually it was fairly apparent. It is a about a 10 minute walk from the port, if you are arriving by cruise ship. No need to take a taxi.

Excellent walking tour of the Diocletian Palace. Our guide Gorjana was experienced and very patient in answering our questions. Highly recommend activity to do while in Split
