After many travels all around Europe, I realized that many of those trips didn't give me anything more than content of tour manuals so I should have found another way to make that experience unforgettable.
I discovered that tours provide the opportunity to meet local people, learn about their customs, cuisine and way of life. Therefore, the experience is much more complete and the memories stay forever.
I have started to explore my country and found new stories, legends, things that were hidden on a first sight so that I can now show you the best of culture, history, gastronomy and lifestyle of locals.
As a historian, I can give you a wider view and context of all the things that we will see and experience on tours.
Come to this region of Croatia, meet us, learn about us, and maybe at the end you could feel like one of us!
A Recent Review of this guide
On a recent cruise ship vacation we took two "Tours by Locals". We highly recommend Dean. It was nice to have a guide for the two of us instead of being in a group of 40 or more. This was our first trip to the Balkans. Even with my hearing problems Dean's English was easy to understand. We traveled by foot and by bus and covered all the highlights of Rijeka and also some off the radar spots. We enjoyed Dean's knowledgeable and entertaining explanation of the history, culture, politics, etc.
