Dale NiehausUnited States
Thank you Vjeran for an amazing tour of Trogir and the Diacletian Palace. We had a great time with you and your driver. Your knowledge of the area was incredible. We hope to return again, and would certainly look to do another tour with you! Your restaurant recommendation was "spot on", and loved every bite!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dale (and Brenda, Tom and Donna), Luka and I had an amazing time with you and we are so grateful; for everything... Showing you around was a privilege. And, reading what you wrote here made me so happy (and, again, grateful). So, I'm glad you enjoyed visiting this part of Croatia and I hope this is just one of your many visits to our country. Luka and I would love to tour with you again. We're looking forward to our next "adventure" together. Thanks, again and take care!

Vjeran is a first-rate guide in every way! Clever, informative, helpful, flexible and even knew where to find restrooms. Could not have asked for a better guide or friend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for saying all this! I can only reply the same way; couldn't have asked for nicer, kinder or smarter people to spend time with. It was pure pleasure and such a privilege (to be your guide). I hope we'll meet and tour together again.
Fiona G.United States
Vjeran is an amazing tour guide & host for Croatia!! He is extremely knowledgeable, accommodating & organized. We arrived on celebrity constellation, he picked us up from the port & took us on a brilliant tour of Trogir & Split. We learned so much & had great fun in the process. We wouldn't return to Croatia without booking another tour with Vjeran; we highly recommend him!! Thank you Vjeran!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I can't thank you enough for what you wrote here. But, believe me, I'm very grateful. This means so much to me. What I do would mean nothing without your satisfaction. But, spending time with you was not working; it was having fun in the company of extraordinary people. Thank you for that, too (for being great)! I'm very happy to hear you might return to Croatia and have me as your guide, again. I'm looking forward to that. Take care!

Leanne SilvaUnited States
Great tour! Vjaran is very nice person, he took us in a minibus to Trogir is a beautiful town and then to Split to the Diocleciano Palace. I he knows a lot and he makes all the history interesting. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Leanne, Thank you for such a great day/tour I had with you and, of course, for these kind words. Being your guide was so easy; it felt like I was on vacation. You were so kind and nice and I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your visit. Needless to say, I hope we'll meet again and, maybe, explore together another part of Croatia/Dalmatia. Until then, I wish you all the best. Thanks, again and take care! Vjeran
Yong Wei LeeSingapore
Vjeran is a good Croatia Tour Guide. He showed us his beautiful home town city passionately. He took us to Trogir, a lovely settlement with small yachts calling the port. That made our visit to Split a wonderful trip with all good memories. His explanation was clear and he is a patience and polite tour guide. We definitely will recommend our friends and all others to visit Split and book Vjeran as their guide as early as possible ! Once again, we thank you Vj for being our private tour guide in Split.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind words! It was such a great day; I'm the one who is thankful. I enjoyed every moment we spent together; getting to know you was so much fun. I'm looking forward to meeting your friends; thank you, in advance, for recommending me. I also hope I will get another chance to meet you and, maybe, show you another part of Croatia/Dalmatia. Thanks, again, for everything and take care.
Stuart S.United States
Excellent guide! Very professional, knowledgeable, accommodating and friendly. With his help we maximized our time on shore and saw all the sites we wanted to see. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for saying this. I try to do my best in order to help people on my tours get the best out of their time in this area. I'm happy if you enjoyed. It was my pleasure to be your guide. I hope we'll meet again; I would like that - there are some other great things to visit in Split area. Take care!
Ann MayUnited Kingdom
Vjeran was a wonderful guide, informative, friendly and it was like visiting Diocletian's Palace and Trojir with a great friend. No question too much and lots of incredible insight and knowledge not only about Split but Croatia and its history from ancient times to date! Thoroughly recommended and thank you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ann, thank you for your kind words. I can say the same; it was like spending time with great friends. And, I'm really happy you felt that. Your interest and kindness were very motivating for me. Thank you for a great experience of being your guide! Till next time (I hope we'll meet again), take care.
David BellMebane, NC, United States
Vjeran was a great tour guide. Very friendly and accommodating. We toured and visited the sites we wanted to see and some he had suggested. Split was beautiful and the history and architecture were wonderful. Very well the time with Vjeran. Hope to see him again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I enjoyed every moment spent with you. You were/are so nice and kind. I loved showing you around; I's great spending time with people that have such interest and passion. I also hope we'll meet again. Thank you, for everything.
Debra CarrionUnited States
VJ was great. He was able to accommodate our time restrictions and gave us some great suggestions for other parts of our trip. He was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and kept the teenagers interested in the tour by providing some interesting anecdotes.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Debra, Thank you for your nice and kind words. It was great being your guide. There are not many teenagers like that; so respectful, smart and interested. All of you were amazing. For me, our tour was one great experience and I hope we'll get a chance to repeat it. Take care.
Eleanor SiegalSan Antonio, Texas, 78230, United States
Vjeran was outstanding in every way---VERY knowlegable, personable, friendly and extremely attentive! Eleanor S, San Antonio, Texas
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Eleanor, I can't thank you enough for your kind words... A comment like this means a lot, especially coming from such a knowlegable, intelligent and kind person (these adjectives apply to your whole group). It was such an honor to meet you and to spend some time with you (hope we'll get a chance to repeat this experience).
Paul FraserUnited Kingdom
I would highly recommend this tour. Vjeran was an excellent guide, we really enjoyed his information and his company for this 4 hour tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for recommending me (my tour). It was great being your guide; your interest and kindness were very motivating for me. I hope we'll meet again. Take care.
Patricia PostilUnited States
We cannot recommend Vjeran highly enough! His intelligence, knowledge and passion for his country and its history is only surpassed by his kind and gentlemanly manner. Vjeran was so considerate of all the members of our group and the challenge of the heat and humidity, while keeping us fully engaged in our surroundings, bringing to life the history of Split and Trogir. We only wish we had more time to spend in Split so that we could take another of his tours! Next trip!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Patricia (and Barbara, Jackie, Mary and Jonathan), It's just not possible to find words that will give you the right idea about how I felt reading your comment. Words like grateful and moved come to my mind. But are not good enough, for sure. What I wanted to say is that you, definitely, gave me a huge boost, you motivated me to try to be a better guide and a better person. Thank you!!! I loved every moment I spent with you. You are one amazing group of people! I do hope we'll meet again. Best
Cynthia ScurlockUnited States
Vjeran was an amazing guide. We were 9 people including 4 kids. He did a great job showing us Split and Trogir. He kept the kids engaged the entire 4 hours!!! It was more like going around the city with a good friend (who knew a lot about Croatia and it's wonderful history) than with a tour guide. Absolutely book a tour with him!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cynthia, First of all, I would like to thank you for your words. It might sound a bit corny but I really do get my motivation from people like you. Your words/comments mean more than you could imagine. I also felt the same; like taking friends on a walk with me. Great feeling! And your kids... I was amazed by them; they are so nice and polite! And they know a lot! Long story short - it was great meeting you and spending time with you! I can only say: Thank you! Take care!

Georgina E.United States
Thank you Vjeran for the wonderful tour! Vjeran is very knowledgeable, patient and accommodating. Would definitely book a tour with Vjeran on a return trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Georgina! Showing you around was one great experience. I'm happy I had a chance to meet you. I'm even happier to hear (to read) that you might come back to Split and have me as your guide again. Till then, take care.
Melinda S.United States
Vjeran was an outstanding guide. If I could give him 10 stars, I would!! He gave us an awesome tour. Thanks, Vjeran!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Melinda, I'm very happy I had a privilege to meet you and to be your guide. If I could rate my guests/travelers, I would give you 10 stars, too. Thank you for your kind words. I hope we'll get a chance to meet again. Take care!!

What a wonderful tour guide and what a fantastic day in Split !!! VJ was absolutely perfect, he was knowledgeable , he was fun and he went above and beyond to make our tour in split so enjoyable.

Michael HiattUnited States
Vjeran was wonderful. Very knowledgeable went above and beyond. We had three children on our tour and he made sure it was interesting for them as well. I highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I had such an amzing time with you! You made me feel like I was a part of your family. And, you have one great family! So, coming from you, these kind words mean even more. Thank you! I do hope we'll meet again.
Absolutely top notch - could not have imagined a better person to spend time with in Split and Trogir. Vjeran is everything you'd want in a guide: intelligent, friendly, deeply knowledgeable, considerate, flexible and - very important for our kids - funny. He kept the history light and entertaining to engage them on a hot day. Thank you Vjeran! (The kids are still laughing about the tuna...)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You made me blush... You are one great family; being your guide was as easy as it gets (in the best possible way). And your kids... Such a hot day, but they were so amazing; patient, polite... and so smart. Thank you! For a great experience of being your guide and for these nice words. Till our next tour together, take care.
Anna BahnsonUnited States
We had a wonderful tour with Vjeran today. We could not have asked for a better guide. He was extremely knowledgable about the history of the area as well as current events. It was a pleasure to spend the morning with him and he gave us an excellent recommendation for lunch and the best ice cream in Split at the end of our tour. We are headed out to see the local soccer match-ups this evening that he told us about. Our son is thrilled! Thank you, VJ!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Anna, you have a great family. It was a privilege spending time with you. Thank you for these words; it means a lot to me and makes me love my job even more. I enjoyed talking to your son about soccer (I love it, too). Actually, I enjoyed every single moment of our tour. Thanks again and take care!
David SavetzUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Great customers!!! Thanks for everything!
Jaime NasajonUnited States
Vjeran was excellent!! He was very knowledgeable, very easy going and he explained everything in detail to help us understand the rich history of the city. It was one of our best tours and he's highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for these kind words. You were excellent!!! I have to say I'm blessed, being able to do what I love. And, I love it because of the people I meet and tour with. People like you; fun, knowledgeable , nice... I hope we'll do something like this again. Thank you for a great morning (and a bit of the afternoon). Take care.
Derrick KnightUnited States
Vjeran was an excellent guide for our tour in Croatia! We had a group of 4 persons, he was very responsive to all our questions and very passionate about his home country of Croatia. The pace he set for us was just right, we covered a lot of areas but didn't feel rushed. He also made sure we knew we could stay longer in areas we liked and move a little faster in areas we wanted to spend less time. Overall thumbs up from the entire group, great job VJ, we really enjoyed the tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure! Thank you for writing all this, it really means a lot to me. I'm very happy you felt my passion about Croatia. I love my country with all my heart. And I enjoy showing it to people like you (interested, well travelled, enthusiastic...). Your group was great and being your guide was pure enjoyment. I hope you'll come to Croatia again and we'll do some more "exploring" together.
Anne HollyUnited States
Great tour VJ!!!! We had a great day with you! You are very knowledgeable and fun to have as our guide. We all really enjoyed Trogir and the highlights is Split. I hope my son enjoys his time in Croatia as much as we did. Hoping to return again some day! Thanks for making our time in Split so enjoyable!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Anne!!! It was my pleasure. And, I had an amazing day being your guide. It's great to hear you enjoyed your time here. I know your son will bring back home the same emotion. Thank you for everything. I hope we'll meet again. Take care.
Catherine RobertsANCASTER, ON, Canada
Wonderful day with a super guide. Was there early, ready to show us his lovely city. A wealth of knowledge given in a professional but fun way. I would book him again without hesitation. He is an asset to Tours by Locals. Flexible and good at suggesting other places we may like to see. Easy to tour with.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: These kind words mean a lot, especially coming from a person with so much knowledge and experience in tourism. I could learn many things from you. I loved your group. It was a great pleasure to be your guide. I do hope we'll work together again.
Fred MunichUnited States
Excellent tour our tour guide even adjusted the tour on the fly to meet our needs.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for an amazing day! I truly hope we'll meet again. You are such a great couple!
Norman BrickmanUnited States
Vjeran was a great guide. We toured both Split and Trogir and we learned and saw a lot of both cities. Vjeran has a wealth of knowledge that he did an excellent job of sharing. We are happy to rate his tour as five stars.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am very happy and grateful you gave me such a nice comment. And, I am so happy I met you and had a chance to show you these places. It was great spending time with you. We should do that again. Thanks for everything!
