I am Ivana and I am an official licensed guide for Dubrovnik and Dubrovnik-Neretva County.
Before I decided to become a full-time tour guide, I was studying at American College of Management and Technology in Dubrovnik, division of Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) where I majored in Small Business. After graduation, for several years I was working in management of one Croatian hotel chain when I decided to make a big career change and pursue new adventures. I enjoy my job in such extent I stopped considering it a job long time ago. Every day is an opportunity to meet new people from all over the world which is one of the greatest benefits of this job.
During the guiding, I try to depict what life used to be like in old Ragusa and what life is like today in Dubrovnik. Of course, ages, years, architectural styles are all equally important, but without the perspective of any given era, guiding becomes a dull historical class which is definitely not my style. I take advantage of every winter, when business is a bit slower (we are mainly a summer destination), to travel around to wherever and to catch up on my reading. What intrigues me the most are Dubrovnik's legends and stories one cannot easily access on the Internet.
I am not focused only on history, I also do Game of Thrones tours that are vastly popular in Dubrovnik (or should I say, King's Landing) - on this tour I take you to filming sites and locations and share stories from the set. The rest of my tour offers are available on the page here where you can check them out in more detail. If there is anything more you'd like to find out about me or the tours I offer, you can contact me on this page as well.
I am looking forward to meeting you and being your guide here in Dubrovnik!
A Recent Review of this guide
Excellent tour. Well managed so we avoided the crowds completely. The four of us really enjoyed it, learned what we wanted to and felt as though we got a good feel for Debrovnik given the shortness of our stay.
