Rafaella was great! I took three tours with her and had a good time in all three. And the drivers Tommy & Draghic were great as well. I highly recommend Rafaella & her team.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Sumanth! Maybe I'll see you again on your next trip.

It is most unfortunate that there are only Five (5) stars to give Rafaella.. Our few hours spent walking the Old Town (and some of the new) was most informative and fun. Rafaella is wise and mature beyond her years and a credit to her Profession. Her personality is engaging and she is a credit not only to her Profession but to her Country and Culture as well. Thank you Rafaella. B&K Vancouver Canada ����

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Kris and Ben! This means a lot. Hope you'll have many great memories here. Including peka and soparnik. ;)

I wish there could be more stars than just five. Rafaella is knowledgeable, friendly, patient, lovely, and everything else you could want in a guide. She gave us the best walking tour of Zagreb we could wish for. After only four hours, we felt like we knew her for years. She knows the history of Zagreb and she has the pulse of the city. If you're lucky enough to book a tour with her, grab it!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Ira! I'm so glad you decided to spend your free time in Zagreb. It was a real pleasure spending a few hours with you.

Rafaella is a marvel with a mastery of English nearly matched by her humor, historical knowledge and general commentary. She was very patient with our tendency to wander (physically and verbally) and accommodated our age and photo op desires very well. The length of the tour was perfect for giving a general overview of the old town so that you can decide on your own what areas to spend more time on later. If you only have 3 hours in Zagreb, spend them with Rafaella.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for this wonderful words! I am really happy you've enjoyed the tour. Big hi to everyone!

Rafaella is a gem She met us in Zagreb for a walking tour and then took us to Split utilizing a driver for that portion of the guided tours. She was pleasant, helpful and accommodating at all times. Unfortunately she couldn't control the weather, but always had a smile on our face. Would gladly use her again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Howard! I'm glad that you liked our tour. If you ever visit again, I'll do my best and try to book at least a week of sun! ;)

Rafaella planned the most wonderful 5 days showing my family and I the beauty of Croatia from Zagreb to Dubrovnik. From the city center in Zagreb, to the coliseum in Pula, to the beautiful seaside town of Split, Rafaella shared with us the rich history and culture of Croatia and gave us a better understanding as to why Croatia has grown in popularity as a vacation destination. It was a pleasure having her plan our entire stay in Croatia.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Susan! I'm very happy that you've enjoyed Croatia. It was a pleasure having you all here. Hope to see you again one day! Take care

Was a last-minute & late evening decision to take a Zagreb Walking Tour. I contacted Rafaella, she immediately replied & by 11:30 pm my following day's trip to Zagreb was organized. Collected early morning from the airport & back to the airport for my late afternoon international flight. Rafaella interestingly explained the extensive city history. Along with her driver, they helped me to purchase a much-needed extra suitcase. Definitely, I made the best choice to contact Rafaella, you will also be happy

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for such nice words! I am very happy that you enjoyed the tour. Looking forward to seeing all the photos! ;) Hope to see you again in Zagreb.

We had a GREAT time with Rafaella. She is very friendly and warm and our family felt comfortable with her right away. She came to our hotel promptly, she accommodated our special requests such as stopping by a market, and she even arranged to have something we left in the tour van be brought back to us after our tour was over.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ernest! I'm really glad that you've enjoyed your tour. Say hi to your family from me, special hi to Sophie and Natalie!

We had an excellent time with Ella! She is one of the best tour guides we ever had. My wife has physical limitations, and Ella was completely accommodating and helpful. Our Plitvice Lakes tour included a city tour of Zadar, which we highly recommend. We wished we had even more time in Zadar. From Zadar we visited Plitvice Lakes. It is even more beautiful in person than in pictures. We spent two full, amazing days touring with Ella. She became like family and it was difficult saying goodbye to her.

We had an excellent time with Ella! She is one of the best tour guides we ever had. My wife has physical limitations, and Ella was completely accommodating and helpful. Our tour included Lake Bled and a city tour of Ljubljana, both of which we highly recommend. We wished we had even more time in Ljubljana. It rained heavily during our tour, but we had so much fun that it didn't matter. We spent two full, amazing days touring with Ella. She became like family and it was difficult saying goodbye to

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the kind words! I'm so glad you had fun those two days. I too wish we had more time... I can say I also enjoyed spending time with you and Ruby. Hope to see you again in Croatia after you tour the world! ;)
