My name is Goran. Born and raised in Croatia, I do live in the Dubrovnik region and I love it! I have been working in tourism/sales related services for nearly 15 years as well as a guide and a tour leader.
I had a chance to lead many different groups and individuals throughout the regions and nearby foreign countries as well as travelling on my own. Being able to travel and being thankful for that, I was able to explore, "taste", feel and discover many different places nearby and around the world.
Furthermore, I have studied at the university here in Dubrovnik and obtained a degree in tourism/management back in 2004. Uuhh. . . . a long time ago. . .
Right after college, I started to work in tourism and its related services. For a couple of years, I have worked for a big cruise line company in a hotel department. After I settled back here in Dubrovnik, I started to work as a trip leader, cruise manager and as a local guide on my own as well, cooperating with different tour operators and agencies. Since my aim is now to spend more time here in the region, I decided to join ToursByLocals to offer tours to my area.
My goal is to provide you with an experience, not just a product of the destination in a professional, educational, interesting and always friendly & casual way.
I am aware that every person together with every experience of any kind is always a new one and different.
To all my fellow travellers I want to give an opportunity to experience real places and local people. There is no better way to have a great, authentic and inspirational travel experience than to see, touch, hear, taste and feel the places you are visiting.
Regardless of the offered tour experiences, feel free to let me know if you would like to do something additional or different. With knowledge and experience, I could customize a daily trip or a few days tour experience just for you!
I do have a sense for what you as a traveller might be looking for. If you would like to spend some time together, please feel free to contact me. One of the nicest compliment that I recall from one of the guests is that having a tour experience with me was like being with an old friend. Thanks Mark!

A Recent Review of this guide
Great tour. We had fun and enjoyed the day. He took us to places we never would have found on our own. We enjoyed getting our exercise climbing on the fortress and visiting small towns and seeing the beautiful landscape.
