We spent an amazing day with Darko discovering the Croatian coast and Dubrovnik. In our opinion, Darko is the poster person for the example of an outstanding guide. His enthusiasm and passion for his country captured our hearts. He was willing to share the history of the country with us including the difficulties the country had during the war and has had during recovery. We had a very small window of time for our tour, but despite limited time, time, Darko made sure we left with a love for Croatia. WOW!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs. Karen, Thank you very much for such an amazing words. I am so happy to hear all of this !!! Thank you very much for giving me the chance to meet you and to guide you through my home town. The pleasure was all mine !!! Warmest regards from Dubrovnik !!!

Lina ZelikoffUnited States
Darko was absolutely fantastic, he met us at the port, and drove us around Dubrovnik. He was very flexible, very much in tune with our interests and requests. Our family of four, including 2 teens, thoroughly enjoyed the time and learned quite a bit about the main attractions, and we have lots of photos, since Darko was taking nice shots of us. Darko has an in-depth historical knowledge of Croatia which was much appreciated by my sons. If you want an excellent tour, I highly recommend Darko! Best, Lina

Lynette SheffieldUnited States
We would give Darko additional stars if we could. What a wonderful day we had with him. He picked us up from where our cruise ship tendered and escorted us around Old Town. He is so knowledgeable about Dubrovnik and has so much information to share. He then picked us up in a Mercedes van we enjoyed the views from above of Old Town and it's walls as well as the surrounding coastal areas. We lunched in a restaurant on the water with breathtaking views before being driven back. Definitely recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs. Lynette, Thank you very much for your great review . I am so happy to hear you enjoyed our tour and this small part of the world. It was a true pleasure to meet you all !!! Hope rest of your cruise was great. All the best, Darko
Karl SchmidtUnited States
I wish I could give more than 5 stars! Our tour was wonderful, memorable, meaningful and fun. Darko was informative, had a great sense of humor, and you could really feel his passion for his country. We were a group of 7 from 13 years old to 69 years old and everyone loved it. Our ship changed port at the last minute: so we arrived a day earlier than requested, and somehow Darko was able to do our tour after he finished another. He went way above and beyond to accommodate the change...we were so grateful.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi there !!! Thank you very much for your wonderful review and for being such a GREAT company the other day. I really enjoyed every minute with your family from the moment we shook hands till we said good bye !!! It is nothing but a pleasure to meet such a dear and friendly people like you !!! Hope you enjoyed rest of your vacation and hope to see you some time again. All the best, Darko
Alison OakleyUnited States
Five stars! Darko's tour was the perfect tour for our group of four to get a sense of the nature, history, and beauty of the Dubrovnik area. His English is excellent and is his sense of humor. We especially enjoyed visiting the resort town of Cavtat, a place we would like to stay for a few days. The tour ended in the old town of Dubrovnik. You can tell that Darko loves his home area and really enjoys showing it off to visiting guests. I would book with Darko again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs. Alison, I don't know what to say but thank you vary much. Thank you for your kind words and for your review.

Yong Wei LeeSingapore
Darko is a wonderful and superb Croatia Tour Guide. He made our visit to Dubrovnik a remarkable and memorable trip. We like his beautiful home town very much ! He is a smart, knowledgeable, humble, cool fellow with good personality and full of passion for his work. His explanation was clear and his time management was good. With him, we were able to visit all itineraries as scheduled before return back to our cruise despite my tourmate spent a fair bit of time taking pictures and videos during the trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs. Wei Lee, Thank you very much for your wonderful review. It was my honour to meet both of you and I truly enjoyed your company.

Jan HeyingUnited States
We arrived from our cruise ship and Darko was right on the pier waiting for us. From the minute we shook hands we felt like we had all been friends for a long time. His tour took us through the old town as well as to some other very interesting and fun spots that I know no one on our ship tour were able to see. He was so knowledgable and loved showing us his Dubrovnik. The only problem - we needed more time with Darco -- like a FULL WEEK! Thank you Darco! Hope to be back soon.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jan, I don't know what to say... I am speechless... Thank you very much for the kind words, it really felt like enjoying with my friends. Thank you for that. In a such a great company like yours it is very easy to be a tourist guide !!! Hope to see you again

This was a great 1-day tour, the best in our entire cruise trip! We really liked our guide Darko. He is professional, extremely knowledgeable with historic and recent events, patient, fun, and very considerate. We were a diverse group of 8 people, with two teenagers, three non-English speakers (two of them older than 80), but Darko somehow made all of us enjoyed the tour. He took us to all important sites with one van and certainly went above and beyond with his efforts and time. Highly recommended!
