First time on a walking tour in Croatia and it was the best one we have had from all the countries we have been to so far. Trogir and Split are beautiful, esepcially Split, much older than we thought. The ride to Trogir was fast and comfortable, but the best part was our guide Tanja, thank you for a lovely trip!

Lovely tour! The history of the palace is very interesting and our guide Ivan was great at explaining it. Definitely worth going because it is just the right amount of time to see everything so it isn't overwhelming.

We had a tour with Tanja and I have to say that that was the best walking tour we ever had. Perfect pace, perfect English, great sence of humor and just enough time.

Great tour with a great guide. We saw everything in Split and Trogir in just half a day. Ideal for us since we came from cruise ship.

Tanja was one of the best walking tours we ever had. Perfect English, great knowledge.
