Great value, interesting and informative tour. Tanya really brought the history of Split to life and it was an excellent introduction to the city on our first day. Really helped us decide what we should go back and look at in more detail later as well as providing great tips for local shops and restaurants and typical Croatian cuisine to order in them.

The tour was excellent. The guide was extremely knowledgeable. There were only four of us on the tour as it was the off season, but we were on a small minibus so even full it would have been a small group. We ended up ahead of schedule so we went to couple of extra spots which were lovely. The food and drink were great too.

we have had a spectacular day krka is wonderful lunch really surprised us very rich everything, we drank traditional liquors, the super friendly guide the truth very good impression of the excursion and the unbeatable guide greetings from marina and Lorena thank you very much

We were there during the Christmas holiday, there were rare other tourists and a bit cold, but the view’s still outstanding. Our guide, Tonci, also super professional.

Great trip with lots of time to do your own thing.
