Ivan was great. Very informative tour. Highly recommended. The meeting point is just next to the Golden Gate; just wait there, and at some point (not early), the blue umbrella will show up. I was under the impression that the tour was taking us to the viewpoint, but that was not part of it, and with the heat and all the walking, maybe it was a good thing. Just be aware the tour is just right there in and around the palace.

Tanya was a brilliant guide. She was very informative and gave an enjoying yet insightful tour of the old city. The tour was the perfect length of time, not too long or short. Would recommend doing the tour as you get a better understanding of the buildings and the history of the palace. The evening tour was nice as it wasn’t too hot.

Natasha was great explaining everything. I would suggest to have time for pictures since we were not given any. Also, the tour is sold as Diocletians palace AND old town, it is my understanding that old town is out of the palace which is out of the 4 gates. We didn’t go there.
