To start off with, I've been a licensed guide for several years now and my experience says that the city itself is doing most of my job: whether it's the astonishing architecture of this unique UNESCO World Heritage site, the rich history or the many opportunities it bares.
Another thing that makes my profession so easy is that I don't look at it as a job. It's more like a holiday I take with people from all over the world in the city I live. So it happens that I am the one knowing where to go and what to show.
Not only as a local but as a traveller, I bring experience to the table.
I've been in different countries in and outside Europe so I know what means trying to get the most out of a visit.
My tours are focusing on Dubrovnik and its close surroundings. A classic are walking tours in Old Town.
The city's over 1400 years history, from the founding through its golden age, over the homeland war up to today, offers many eras with fascinating stories to listen to. Dubrovnik's recent history is drawing much attention as well. Yugoslavia and the Homeland war between 1991 and 1995, still is an enigma for many people. So is the hype about the TV series, Game of Thrones". Given that I partecipated as an extra in the show, it is one of the best tours I offer.
To tell you a little bit more about me, I have a master's degree in Media and Communication. My interests are widespread including history, religion, politics, culture and sports. I wrote earlier that I travelled some places, different continents, countries and cultures, always looking to fulfil one desire - to witness something great and experience something memorable. I'm sure you're looking for the same thing.
Have a look at my tours and hopefully see you soon in Dubrovnik!
A Recent Review of this guide
Was a perfect day for hiking - highest mountain at 1234 m in the area - not too hard to get up or down . Off the beaten track of tourists so very peaceful. Ivo chose a perfect spot by a river - very traditional croatian food to finish off the experience. Highly reccomend this tour.
