Our guide, Darko, was incredibly knowledgeable in the rich history of Split. It’s refreshing to feel his passion for the city and its storied history. Having the tour at night is an added bonus as things are less busy and the area has a different feel when compared to the day. Would highly recommend for those who are looking to learn more about how the area came to be by a local expert on all things Split.

Excellent! Our guide Natasha knows a lot about the city, and her English is very fluent.

Our guide was knowledgeable and efficient in showing us the highlights.

A great local guide who injected humour into the tour. Very good talk.

Very good Darko, explaining the history of the city.
