I publish DiscoverSplit, the city's only free, English language newspaper for tourists which you can see at www. discoversplit. com; as well as the Split Restaurant Guide, www. splitrestaurantguide. com and the 100 plus page TravelGuide to Split and Central Dalmatia, www. splitdalmatiatravelguide. com All of these are supported and approved by the Tourist Board of Split, whom I work with as a consultant. I also created the first and only walking map of all the streets and alleys within the actual Palace of Diocletian--which is part of the newspaper Together with friends who own wineries, restaurants, honey farms and the best professional guides, I have created a suite of intriguing private tours that take you off-the-beaten-track to see places most tourists never see; meet locals; stop by for the best chocolate ice cream you have ever eaten; a gourmet bakery, meet the last remaining filigree silversmith in Split; an iconic local artist and even more. When you walk with me, you not only get the in-depth local expertise of a talented, local professional guide, but the nuance, humor and insight of someone who lives here, loves it and has been working with tourists and tour programming in the US as well as in Russia (where I lived and worked) for many years, but the insight and expertise of a local professional registered guide--TWO of us on every tour!. If there's something you would like to do a bit differently than what we have in our programs, just ask. The answer is usually yes! I look forward to meeting you and helping to show you this really special part of the world! Do take a look at some of my wonderful reviews from travelers and agents who had a great time here!
