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 honour 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 humour 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 favoured 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
We had an 11 hour tour with Matijas and visited 3 historic towns leaving from Opatija. We greatly enjoyed the whole day. Matijas was a professional, knowledgeable and energetic guide who really knows the Istrian peninsula. We are very interested in history and in photography and he had a depth of knowledge that he readily shared throughout the tour and also identified good photo stops. We would definitely recommend him as a guide.
