Matijas - Matt

Rovinj - Rovigno, Istra, Croatia

Guiding Tours is something that I consider more than just a profession, part that I like even more is meeting people from all over the world. . . and as long as I will be passionate as I am I will do it best possible way.

Satisfied and well informed guest is my primary goal, and since I am the one representing and presenting this beautiful corner of the world I am coming from, it is always my greatest honor and pleasure to see happy guests after the tour I organize and provide.
According to my "style", it is not that much about the facts you can find and read in classic guidebooks, Internet or any other source, it is according to guests specific interests or needs, no matter if it is about history (which is btw. my eternal hobby nr. 1), lifestyle, nature or anything else. . . I am a guide with answers, eloquent, communicative, sometimes with local humor that spices up the story even more. . . :)
Croatia as my homeland and Adriatic - Mediterranean - Central European - Balkan? Region of Istria is indeed a beautiful corner of the world and I appreciate that more and more visitors are coming to see it and experience it. If you wish to see it with an insider with more than twenty years of experience as a Tour Guide, you have found the right person here.

I am offering you a nice selection of tours that are not only popular and very well accepted by guests, but also favored by me. Otherwise, if you have any specific interests or preferences, I will be more than happy to prepare a custom-tailored tour for you, to enhance your pleasure and experience even more. . .

A Recent Review of this guide

Matt is as good a guide as you can find. Thoroughly professional, extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He tailored a tour for us and we were absolutely thrilled with our day. We told him what we were interested in, what we were not interested in and he listened and delivered. We could not have been more pleased. I recommend him without reservation.
