Tania did such a great job. She is an excellent guide! We were very glad we did this. Definitely worth every Penny. When you go through the palace with a guide, you get to experience it on a completely different level than without. We would absolutely recommend going on a guiding tour of the palace in Split with Tania. She’s very kind, knows many interesting facts, has a clear and loud voice and cares for you (looking for spots in the shade etc.).

Amazing experience Really worth the price ! Our guide, Jelena was amazing! Full of great stories and advices on what to do in Split. It was really well organised, we had some free time also which was great. A special thanks because it was my girlfriend’s birthday and Jelena allowed me to do a special wish on the mic. Definitely recommend this tour to see the amazing waterfalls !

Beautiful natural reserve it was a pleasant walk around the grounds and the waterfalls are breath tacking. The only down side was the fact that we were not give the opportunity to bring our lunch and there were no facilities so it’s a long day. We did stop in a small town on our way back where we had a lovely transitional dish called Peka which was amazing

Fantastic trip. Had over an hour at the waterfalls so had time to swim. Mostar was very scenic and had a fantastic guide who gave the right amount of information in a humorous way. Plenty of freebtume to eat and get bargains in the old town of Mostar. Definately would recommend this trip

Very kind and helpful guide who let us have as much or little guided time as we liked. Answered any questions we had and recommended good food and beaches.
