Our guide, I don’t remember the spelling of her name but it sounded like Tanya. She was very professional and thorough and spiced up her narrative with great anecdotal stories. We were very pleased with our tour. One hour and a half was the perfect amount of time to keep the group’s attention.

The tour was fantastic and Sandra was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and was able to share her perspective as a Split local which we really enjoyed. She really went over and above to make sure we enjoyed the tour. Her passion for the history of Split was clearly evident and we loved it.

Very good tour, but it should be longer.

This tour is a very good option if you have a tight schedule. It gives a good overall explanation about the palace but I would have loved it to have a longer version including the Cathedral and Jupiter’s temple. Our tour guide was great though. She was fun and had very good knowledge.
