Igor was great ( which was challenging in 90 degree heat). He was able to combine some game of thrones anecdotes as we had a few fans in our group, with the history of Dubrovnik for first time visitors. He gave us some good suggestions on what we should do with the rest of the time we were spending in the city and made sure we saw the highlights in the time frame we requested.

OUr tour of the old town and city walls with Igor was one of the highlights of our two week trip in Europe. He engaged our teenage children, including highlights of the Game of Thrones locations we came across. Igor is a Dubrovnik native who is very proud of his city and country. That comes across in his tours. I would recommend Igor to anyone wanting an insightful tour of Dubrovnik.

Igor is very polite, knowledgeable and walked us thru the city walls and old city of Dubrovik. He showed us all the great place and photos. Very impressive tour

Igor was very professional and organized in walking six of us through the beautiful walls and the old town of Dubrovnik. His knowledge of the history of Croatia, in particular Dubrovnik was outstanding. Igor was very helpful before and during the tour in answering questions on what we can do on our own. We highly recommend Igor.
Teresa WhiteUnited States
Igor met us promptly at our meeting point and after introducing herself, quickly asked what we wanted to get out of the tour! He did his best to answer all our questions and adjusted the pace of the tour to my husbands bad knee! Igor is extremely knowledgeable and thorough. We would recommend him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Teresa, Thank you for your review. On all of my tours I try to meet expectations of my guests and really give my best to entertain guests during the tour with info they want to hear about. I have enjoyed our pace and was happy that you found my stories interesting :) Thanks for booking my tour and hope to see you again. Igor

Igor structured the tour to fit our interests & pace not his. While he is clearly a Game of Thrones expert, his knowledge goes much further than the show and it's scene shot locations. He grew up in the city and knows the locations and places you can access that only that real life history can provide. He is knowledgeable of the people, government & economic system. He is passionate about the cities past and present. As a bonus he can tell you where to find the best ice cream the city has to offer!
John BigosUnited States
Igor is a great guide who knows his city and history very well. He does what you want to do and offers good suggestions on what to do. We enjoyed his tour greatly
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Bigos, I have enjoyed meeting you and our tour. I hope to see you again in Dubrovnik :) Igor

Igor was very knowledgeable about Dubrovnik's history, especially the history of the Republic. Also, he was a very enjoyable person.
Igor provided us with an excellent, informative, personally tailored tour that exactly met our needs. He understood what we were looking for perfectly and gave us a mix of local knowledge, Dubrovnik and Croatian history from the 11th century through to the present day and also provided some Game of Thrones location insights as we had requested. I would highly recommend booking Igor for your private your in Dubrovnik as you would get so much more out of it than an impersonal, large group tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Petsa, Thanks for your review. I have enjoyed meeting you and doing a combo tour of history of Dubrovnik with some details of Game of Thrones. I hope to see you again in Dubrovnik or in Australia :) Wish you all the best Igor
Excellent tour of Dubrovnik. Igor gave us an insight into the city and chatted with us about a wide range of topics. It was great to be in a small group (we were a group of 4 friends), rather than part of a large tour group. Igor was flexible with the tour, which allowed us to continue the wall walk at the end by ourselves. Excellent English, highly recommended.
Nic GrandUnited Kingdom
Igor our guide was excellent. The tour gave us a wonderful sight into the history of the city and was supported with photographs. Igor was able to give us recommendations for places to eat and drink and advise us as to the ferry crossings to see the islands. Would highly recommend.
Igor was very personable & informative. We were anxious to visit all the important sites & learn about the history of Dubrovnik & Croatia & we were not disappointed! He readily answered all of our questions and as a bonus gave us some restaurant recommendations. We would definitely recommend him as a guide to anyone visiting Dubrovnik!

John WhiteUnited States
Igor was well-informed and shared with us not only the ancient history of Dubrovnik, but some of the recent political history as well. He impressed us with his pop-cultural knowledge as well as the struggles seen by this area. A highly recommended tour guide!
Ilya GrigorikUnited States
Great experience from start to finish: prompt communication, educational tour, and lots of great side-stories about life (and history) in Croatia. Thanks Igor!
Graeme BerrySouth Africa
Igor adapted the tour perfectly to our pace and capacity. When we wanted to stop and rest or stop and shop, he patiently waited and explained something interesting to whoever stayed with him. This tour was a perfect overview of the Old Town. Igor's knowledge and his love of the place (having been born here and lived here ever since) is great. Also he gave us a great local tip to go watch the final of the amateur water polo summer league in the old Barbour the next day - a brilliant experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Berry, Thank you for your kind words. Unfortunately I could not watch the game as well but have heard about it and saw some pictures :) it was a crazy atmosphere as usual :) I am happy to hear that you have enjoyed our tour and Dubrovnik, it is a great place for holidays. I hope I will see you again here or maybe even i SA. Igor

Igor was an amazing guide! In addition to providing lots of historical details on Dubrovnik and its sites, he tailored the tour for our family so that my children ages 14/16 were able to get as much out of it as we did. I have no hesitation in recommending the great tours that Igor offers.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Friedman, thank you for your kind words. I am happy to hear that you and your family have enjoyed our tour, especially after a long day and early flight. I have enjoyed meeting you and hope to see you again in Dubrovnik.
Igor is a great guide with so much information, making our visit very interesting. He made sure that we saw all of the best there was to see. I have been so impressed with Tours By Locals that I will certainly book with the company in the future when visiting unfamiliar places.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs. Sparrey, thank you for your kind words, i am happy to hear that you have enjoyed my tour. It was my pleasure to meet you and show you my beloved city, hopefully I will see you again in Dubrovnik :)
