Tom was a mine of interesting information about Dubrovnik and it's History. He managed to avoid the crowds whilst showing us some amazing places within the old town. He was very engaging and humorous. Would recommend 100 %
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Diane! You were a great crowd to tour with and I hope that we'll have a chance to see each other again. Best regards, Tom
Josh BernsteinUnited States
We just had a tour of the old town of Dubrovnik with Tom and can not say enough great things about it. We were a family of 5 with 2 teens and an 11 year old. Our tour was like walking with a virtual history textbook. Tom knew every historical fact and story and was able to make the city come alive with history. We heard about not only ancient history, but also the history of modern times. I would HIGHLY recommend a tour with Tom. You will not be disappointed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Josh. You are very kind. I am happy that the teens and the 11-year-old enjoyed the history lesson as much as the adults did. Give my regards to your lovely family. Tom
Tom was great. The tour was informative and fun we give him 5 stars.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alex, Thank you so much. I also enjoyed touring with you and your lovely wife. I hope that the remainder of your holiday in Dubrovnik will be as fun as our tour from this Sunday. Best regards, Tom
Tomislav è stato perfetto, ottima conoscenza della lingua italiana, simpatico e molto.preparato. Abbiamo passato con lui una mattinata davvero piacevole, lo consiglio in particolare ai miei connazionali italiani.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Caro Alessandro, Grazie mille! Sono molto contento che ti ha piacuto il tour di oggi. Spero che ci vediamo un altra volta in futuro. Cordiali saluti Tom

Hal RouthUnited States
Tom was on time, in exactly the spot we agreed to meet, and was very knowledgeable regarding Croatian and American history. He pointed out some Game of Thrones sights along with our Essentials tour and was accommodating to the teenagers in the group. We highly recommend him as a tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Hal, Thank you for your kind review. I am really happy that my touring style appealed to both adults and teenagers. I have been in this line of work for over a decade so I believe to have learnt how to adapt to different tastes. Should you happen to be in Dubrovnik again, don't hesitate to contact me. Best regards, Tom
Virginia ( Ginger) CasillasUnited States
We thoroughly enjoyed Tomislav's informative tour of Dubrovinik. His fact-filled narration delivered with lots of humorous asides, gave our group lots to discuss after the tour. Tom answered all of our questions and gave suggestions for other activities. It was a privilege to have such an enthusiastic guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ginger Thank you so much for this fine contribution to the reviews section! I am really happy that entire group appreciated the input and style of the tour. Best regards, Tom
Kelly HuelsingUnited States
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Kelly!
Tom deserves top marks for his excellence as a guide. We were a group of 7 with varied interests and perspectives. He managed to keep us all enthralled for the full tour and we all felt as though we had a good understanding and insight into Dubrovnik both historically and from a current point of view. Tom has a lovely way of connecting with his audience and dazzled us with his knowledge, good sense of humour and general personability. We felt like we'd won the lottery!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Barbara, Thanks! It really means a lot to me that you appreciated my guiding style. Give my regards to the rest of the group. Tom
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks!

We had a wonderful day with Tomislav. Old Town Dubrovnik is so interesting and he knows everything historical and related to Game of Thrones. It was a wonderful day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Theresa, Give my regards to the rest of the group. Valar Morghulis ;-) Tom
Cheryl AltmanUnited States
Our tour of Dubruvnick with Tom was wonderful. He is so knowledgeable of the area in history, culture, and georgraphy. He made the cites we visited alive because of his passion and love of the own. My whole group would recommend him highly - we, also, had a fun time seeing the sighs around town and Lockrum where Game of Thrones has been filmed. Thank you Tomislav!!!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Cheryl, Believe me the pleasure was all mine. I really enjoyed our time together and I'm truly honored by your kind review. Give my regards to the rest of the group. Tom
Kristie WilsonUnited States
Tomislav was an excellent guide and we very much enjoyed his personality and knowledge of the history of Dubrovnick. He also gave very good suggestions for things to see and do. We are very happy we booked him for our first day as we have many good ideas for the rest of our stay.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kristie, Thank you. I had a great time touring with you and your family and I hope that you found my suggestions on what to see, do and eat while in Dubrovnik useful. Best regards, Tom
Jason HumphriesUnited Kingdom
This was a great way to start our holiday in Dubrovnik. Tom is able to impart his vast historical knowledge of the city in a clear and entertaining way. It's well worth the money to have a private tour rather than to be part of a large group. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jason, I am glad that you enjoyed my personal contribution to your first encounter to Dubrovnik. I hope that my suggestions on what to do and see while here will come in handy. Best regards, Tom
Heidi CanarelliHenderson, NV, United States
Tom was fantastic. He was extremely knowledgable and interesting. We left Croatia with a new understanding and appreciation for this beautiful country. I would highly recommend him as a guide for this area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Heidi. Best regards, Tom
Ward EnglishUnited States
Three of the five of us have trouble walking. Tom did a GREAT job customizing the tour to fit our needs. He "parked" the older folks at a nice restaurant with nearby shopping while two of us walked the wall with him. So much fun. Totally pleased with our tour and our guide! Would ask for him again, for sure.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ward, Thank you for these kind words. Moving around the Old Town of Dubrovnik can be a bit challenging for the persons with limited mobility so I'm glad that the ladies found the tour as enjoyable as much as you did. Please extend my regards to the ladies and tell them that it was a pleasure to tour with them. Tom
Janet ClarkUnited States
Tomislav was very well informed and a lot of fun. Great time was had by all!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Cheers Jinny! Give my regards to the rest of the group. Tom
What can we say about Tomislav. He is the BEST. We were 6 friends on a cruise. His emails to organize were spot on. From the minute we met we knew it was going to be great and it turned out to be the best day. His knowledge, passion and explanation of his country was excellent. I had been to Dubrovnik before but Tom showed us places we should have seen the first time, and explained the history in a way that we could all understand. I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in a tour in Croatia
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Irene, It is a bit challenging to arrange a tour for travelers that have visited the city once before, but since I am a local, I still have few aces up my sleeve. I always make sure that some often overlooked points are covered and am happy to arrange a customized tour. And your review is the best proof that this approach works :-) Give my regards to the rest of the group. Tom
William GarlandSan Francisco, CA, United States
My partner and I toured the Old Town of Dubrovnik with Tom on July 2, 2015. He is an exceptional guide with a wealth of information about the landmarks and history of the Town. Our tour was distinguished by the depth and breadth of his knowledge which he generously shared, especially the historical, political & cultural background of Dubrovnik, the country of Croatia and the region. His English is flawless, his personality well suited for a guide. Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Bill, I hope that the rest of your Croatian holiday will be equally enjoyable and that the information I provided during our tour will help you in understanding and appreciating the country and its people. Happy trails! Tom
Elinor G.United States
Tom was wonderful. Fluent in English and a real expert in the very interesting history of Dubrovnik. We learned a lot from him that we would not have known if we had toured around on our own. He was flexible with our special needs and preferences. His driver was also terrific. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Elinor, Thank you. I am happy to hear that my contribution to your overall enjoyment of Dubrovnik was appreciated. It's history may be complex and difficult to grasp in a few hours time, but if you have the right person to explain it to you, then the result is satisfactory. Until next time, Tom

Tom was an outstanding guide for our group of 14. We arrive on Celebrity Equinox. Tom gave us tour of Cavtat, Scenic Kovanie valley, Ljuta river water mill and Dubrovnik.

Kimberly KalupaUnited States
We loved our time with Tom. We arranged this at the last minute to maximize our time in the wonderful city of Dubrovnik. Tomislav exceeded our expectations in every way. He was very laid back, flexible, ridiculously patient with our 6 year old's many questions, and super knowledgeable about the area. We loved our time in the Old City and on Lokrum. He adapted our plan as the day unfolded based on our needs and circumstances like weather, crowds, etc. Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kimberly, Thank you. I would just like to add that I personally enjoyed the tour as well, including Maya's numerous questions (I was actually amazed how intelligent and well thought these questions were, given the fact that she's only 6). I had a great time touring with your lovely family. Give my regards to the girls and your husband.
Marla ReidUnited States
Tom was our guide yesterday. We found him very personable, knowledgeable, helpful and funny at times. These are all things we look for in a guide. We give him high marks. Sent from my iPad
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Marla, I hope that the rest of your trip through Croatia will be as enjoyable as the tour around Dubrovnik. Please say hello to the rest of the group for me. Best regards, Tom
Judy BatesUnited States
I believe Tom to be the best guide I've ever had. He was so knowledgable about Dubrovnik and made its history come alive. I walk with a cane and Tom was always patient and helpful. My daughter, granddaughter and I had a wonderful day and have many wonderful memories of our tour and tour guide, Tom.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Judy, Thank you very much for your kind comment. The pleasure was actually all mine as I spent a great afternoon with three charming ladies. Please give my regards to your daughter and granddaughter.
