My experience was beyond this world. The guide knew her topic throughout, was nice, funny and eloquent. She spoke excellent English and was more than prepared to answer my questions. I happend to be the only one on the tour and it felt like a friend was explaining me all these wonders of the beautiful and impressive palace. I learned so much and had such a good time. Thank you once again!

The tour was great, we couldn’t find the meeting point however Doris the guide telephoned me and we were able to meet! It was just me and my boyfriend Lloyd on the tour so we felt like we had a private tour! Doris was great and really enthusiastic! She took photos of us and we had a great time! I recommend!

Wonderful experience, highly recommended. The whole trip actually last longer than 45 min, the guide gave me a tour around Diocletian's Palace itself and some other sightseeing points in the city center. He went me through the history highlights of Split in such a short time, by presenting it in a fun and memorable way. Perfect English & Professional knowledge
