A Recent Review of this tour

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Tonka. She is a natural teacher, as well as being warm, friendly and welcoming. She clearly enjoys her work. We were impressed with her extensive knowledge of the Jewish History of Dubrovnik as well as the city history and her patience in answering our many questions. We were so fascinated by her explanations, the time went by quickly and we felt enriched by the experience. Tonka arrived early to pick us up, was very professional and a delight to be with.
