Katja

Split, Splitsko-dalmatinska, Croatia

Hi! My name is Katja and I work as a private travel guide in Split, Croatia.

I've had my license for 8 years now and am a member of the chairmanship of the local tourist guides' association in Split. Since I have university degree in English and German, I also work as a teacher, translator and interprete, as well as cultural manager, since I am really an art lover & big literature fan as well. I also speak French, do yoga and spend my free time mountineering, jogging and trekking. More than 10 years of experience in tourism, as well as my communication skills and most of all - my great interest in people coming from different cultural backgrounds - make me an excellent guide, at least that's what my guests say :)
I love my job as a private guide in Dalmatia, as well as all my other interests, which I think is a great formula to do my tours so passionately over and over again.
Every new group of my guests is a new experience for me and an opportunity to give my best.
Join me for the unique sightseeing experience of Dalmatian cities, national parks, islands and historic sites! Croatia is really an incredible country, very small - but with almost 10% of the territory under some sort of protection, either as National parks, protected resorts or as world famous UNESCO sites (seven of them!).
All my tours are custom made and I am open to all your questions, suggestions and requests.
If you want a professional and reliable guide, with a good sense of humor and willing to make your experience of Croatia unforgettable - contact me.
See you soon!

A Recent Review of this guide

Katja was great. She has a wonderful sense of humor that made us giggle! Her history of the palace is outstanding. We are still quoting some of her comments about the history! We loved seeing the GOT areas. She made the palace walls come alive. At the end of the tour, she gave us ideas for restaurants that we followed and were so happy. Thanks, Katja - you made our trip to split a fabulous experience.
