Ivo's "GoT" tour for 6 of us was also spectacular! (See my review of this gracious, charming, spirited, & FUN driver/guide's same day "Dubrovnik Essentials Shore Excursion.") He assisted the GoT crew in a variety of stunning locations, so he had lots of interesting inside info about the many beautiful settings we explored (& photos of GoT enhancements vs. the restored state). The finishing touch: a great dinner at a table he reserved by a natural waterfall at a forest restaurant with local wines & food.

On the very busy national holiday our cruise ship called at Dubrovnik, Ivo managed to avoid most of the heavy traffic & crowds to provide 6 of us (3 couples) an outstanding tour of a great number of different important, interesting sites—both in the city & countryside, where he curated many fabulous photo ops. He was a most gracious, charming, & FUN driver/guide, with passionate, thorough, insightful historical, political, & cultural information. We never felt rushed, even though we saw & learned so much!

My husband and I, along with another couple just returned from an amazing trip to Croatia. We did a tour with Ivo to Ston, Kocula and the wine country. We had a fabulous time. Ivo was hilarious and very personable. He arranged some awesome tastings for us and took us to some spectacular view points. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Ivo.

My family rated Ivo as their favorite guide out of 15 tours on our 3 week trip. My kids said he seemed like a friend by the end of the day. Ivo definitely went beyond the tour description and changed the itinerary when he heard the interests of the group. Really the best!

Our tour guide Ivo was truly wonderful and made our last day in Croatia our best! He went out of his way to customise our tour for us and took us off the beaten track to get away from the crowds which is just what we wanted. From freshly picked oysters to perfectly cooked mussels, to boutique winery visits...this was a truly wonderful day. The cherry on the top was visiting a Mlicini Ano, a little farm in the mountains where we ate freshly made cheese, homemade wine, honey, and the best lamb in Croatia!

Ivo was the best guide we ever had...truly the best!! Book him for everything you do in and around Croatia, including Montenegro and Bosnia. We booked him for 2 days, but saw him for 5. We had more fun than can be described in the allotted space. Ivo went way above and beyond what could be asked as he provided extra care for my wife who has a disability. By the time we left, we felt like we were saying good bye to family. If you book Mostar, have Ivo take you for breakfast & wine tasting at Hotel Bastina!

Ivo C. is the proudest Croatian we have ever experienced. Ivo certainly is a wealth of knowledge. At times his ethnocentrism and ambition could come down a notch or two. We felt safe and comfortable with Ivo. He certainly knows Mostar. Would we use Ivo again - yes.

This was a fantastic tour, of course, we were very fortunate that the weather was perfect! We stopped at several vineyards for wine tasting in addition to the oyster outing. We are experienced travelers and this was one of the most memorable tours ever. if you are thinking about this tour, just do it!

Absolutely fantastic trip!!! Ivor C was a very friendly and informative guide . He tailored the trip to our needs and showed us some of the most beautiful scenery we have ever seen! The wines were favouritism , and the winery owners very informative. As a lover of fine wines I would recommend this trip ( especially the Vinarija Milos . Exceptional !! And the white Risotto at the little restaurant was delicious! Highly recommend this trip it was great from start to finish. Thank you Ivor for a great day

Ivo was a wonderful, knowledgeable guide. He had pictures of scenes from the Game of Thrones which he showed us when we reached the locations where the scenes were filmed. Other tour guides asked to use the pictures to show their guests! He was very enthusiastic and it was apparent that he loved his country and his job. It was a great tour!

Unforgettable and unique adventure with Ivo! Our group of 6 was met right on time by Ivo. The van was clean and air conditioned. As we drove to Ston, Ivo explained about the area and the culture of the Dalmatian coast. We took a little boat to a private island and learned about oyster and mussel farming. Then we sat at a beautifully set outdoor table and were served a heavenly meal of fresh oysters and steamed mussels in white wine and garlic. Homemade wine and bread! So much fun! So unique!

Ivo was fun to talk with and knowledgable. The wine tasting part of the tour was great. The Oyster part of the tour was a little disappointing. We rode around in a boat for about 20 minutes and looked at a couple of oysters. If you want to taste the oysters, you have to buy lunch at the restaurant connected to the oyster farm. (The lunch was delicious.)

Ivo was great! Picked us up promptly from airport & helped coordinate with apartment owner, luggage etc. all with a smile. He picked us up for trip to Montenegro which was an over the top bonus day! Stunning scenery-he provided spectacular photo ops! Drove up a mountain of 25 switchbacks to find a great restaurant with fresh local dishes! He ordered for us with excellent recommendations-all delicious! Climbed 450 steps to the top-stunning . Sunset vistas before taking ferry back. A fantastic day with Ivo!

He gave us excellent restaurant recommendations, most of which we tried with great success. Proto was especially good, the subject of another review, as was Orhan.

We just returned from Dubrovnik, Croatia where we met Ivo. He is a licensed guide and is wonderful. We were able to see all the sights that we wanted to see. He made Dubrovnik come alive. We felt very safe as he drove into the mountains. He clearly explained the history of the area. Ivo dropped us off in Old Town and let us wander on our own and then later picked us up and took us back to the ship. It was fantastic!! His command of English was outstanding. Thank you Ivo and Toursbylocals.

We had a through tour but I would not recommend large groups with any tour guide. Keep it small (6 the most) so that you can move through this area much easier.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Malvina, Dubrovnik essentials tour includes walk through the old town (1,5 km approximately, as it is pedestrian zone only) and it gets very crowded sometimes. Thank you for understanding and wish you all the best.

This was a fabulous tour! Ivo was great - very knowledgable, great English. Our oyster experience ranks as one of our favorites from our 2 week cruise of the Mediterranean. We are from Louisiana and eat plenty of oysters and were told that we may not like the Croatian oysters as much, but they were great size, plenty salty and the whole setup in Ston was fabulous. As a bonus we also ate fresh muscles cooked with local ingredients that may have been one of our best meals on trip. Thanks Ivo!!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much on these compliments. You were great company and I hope your friend is getting better.
