VJ was very knowledgable and was great with our kids. He spent time and care answering all of our questions, and we would definitely recommend him to anyone heading to Split. He is a wonderful guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for recommending me and, even more, for these kind words you wrote. Your kids are great! All of you are! I'm grateful I had the opportunity to meet you and to tour with you. I hope we'll get a chance to repeat that. Take care.

Touring with VJ was GREAT!!! There were four of us, and VJ sat in the middle of the van so everyone could hear. It was a wonderful mix of Croatian history, comments about current events, and the importance of what we were seeing in the various places we went. VJ is very flexible, and will modify any part of a tour to accommodate special needs or varying interest levels. VJ is an interesting person and was a delight to be with.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lew, spending time with the four of you was a great privilege for me. You were so nice and kind (and very smart) and it was pure pleasure showing you around. Thank you for such a great experience. And, thank you, so much, for this comment you wrote; it means a lot to me and makes me love what I do even more. I do believe we'll meet again and I'm really looking forward to that. Take care!

My family had such a terrific time in Split with Vjieran. They could not stop talking about his passion and love for Croatia. How much they learned from him! Thank you. Highly recommend this tour and VJ as the guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cristina, you have one spectacular family! Every moment spent with them was pure fun and pleasure. I felt like a member of the family; an amazing family. Thank you, for everything! I hope we'll get another chance to meet. I will be looking forward to that.

VJ was great. He focused on it being our private tour and was sensitive to our needs and wishes and flexible in what we wanted to see and do. Very knowledgeable and engaging. Could not have been better.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! It's easy to be sensitive and flexible with people like you (so nice and polite) on tour. I really do believe that every guide's goal should be making his guests/clients happy and the way to do so is trying to take care of your needs. I hope I got some of that right, since you wrote such a nice comment. Thanks; I hope we'll meet again.

"VJ" was absolutely incredible! A trip to Split would not be complete without a tour from VJ. He was extremely knowledgeable and so personable - it was as if we were traveling around with our friend of 20 years. We frequently use Tours By Locals and VJ was by far the best guide we've EVER had. We give VJ 6 stars!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Words are not enough to show how much this (your comment/rating) means to me. Really. I felt the same; it was like spending time with great friends. On days like this one it's so easy to be a guide; it's the best job in the world. Thank you! You both made this day a great one!

VJ is very knowledgeable, willing to expand from the basic itinerary, very friendly, professional, and considerate. For example, we were interested in the history of Split but he still made time to give us a short Game of Thrones photo op for a co-worker. He also has excellent English skills. I highly recommend VJ.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Karen and Scott, Thank you! For a great time I had with you, for being so amazing and interested in our history and culture. I enjoyed showing you around and would love to meet you again. Till then, I wish you all the best. Thanks again and take care!

My wife and I had a really good time with Vjeran. He was incredibly nice and pleasant personality. We also loved the tour. He was an enthusiastic tour guide that engaged with us for the entire tour. I would suggest this tour to anyone visiting Split. It was like having the ruins of Rome all to yourself.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You are far too kind. Thank you, Glenn, for writing all this. I'm very grateful. I can only respond saying the same thing; you two are a wonderful couple, it was such a pleasure spending time with you. We'll have to do it again.

We 3 have traveled alot over the years and this is the first time we decided to hire a private guide. We were so lucky to have Vjeran!!! So friendly, easy-going, full of history and local knowledge. He paid attention to us all the time, making sure we didn't trip over ancient steps, showing us amazing little features that we would walked by, answering any question. We usually read guidebooks and go on our own. Now we realize that we have been missing so much by not using a top notch guide like Vjeran.
