Katja was great. She has a wonderful sense of humor that made us giggle! Her history of the palace is outstanding. We are still quoting some of her comments about the history! We loved seeing the GOT areas. She made the palace walls come alive. At the end of the tour, she gave us ideas for restaurants that we followed and were so happy. Thanks, Katja - you made our trip to split a fabulous experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Julia, I'm so happy to read this! It was my pleasure to guide you through my home town. Wish you and your family all the best!
Katja had a whirlwind of information that amazed us. We booked her on short notice (<24 Hrs). My mom and dad have difficulty with stairs and she was able to organize the tour in a way they won't be able to miss a thing. I would recommend Katja to everyone!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Andrew, the pleasure was all mine. So happy to hear they enjoyed the tour and will hopefully remember this experience in Split. Wish you and your family all the best!
Katja was a warm and pleasant person and an entirely professional guide who made a lot of effort to be helpful when one of us suffered a minor health problem. She was extremely well informed and very articulate and we gained an understanding of the historical importance of Split and the Diocletion Palace. I can highly recommend her for a wonderful dav in Split. Judith M.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Judith, thank you for your kind words. I hope you all enjoyed the rest of your cruise. All the best! Katja

On very late notice, Katja took over our private tour as our previous guide resigned. What a gem she is! Katja is friendly, fun and very knowledgeable. She tried her best to accommodate all our needs. We fell in love with Split and Omis and will definitely return soon. We recommend Katja to any one who needs someone special.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Annarine, Thank you for your kind words. It was my pleasure to guide you and help you discover some hidden gems of Dalmatia region. All the best to your mom and your sisters! See you in South Africa, Katja
The tour with Katja was just perfect. She was able to inform us about the history of Split and Croatia. She speaks great German and showed us exactly the right places of interest. 5 Stars. Die Tour mit Katja war einfach perfekt. Sie konnte uns umfassend über die Geschichte von Split und Kroatien informieren. Sie spricht super Deutsch und hat uns genau die richtigen Sehenswürdigkeiten gezeigt. 5 Sterne.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Danke liebe Angela! Alles Gute und herzliche Gruesse aus Split! The pleasure was all mine. Thank you for your kind words.
John CookUnited States
Katja gave us an excellent tour, demonstrating both a thorough knowledge of the town and its history, as well as fluency in English. Of our foursome, one had to drop out before reaching the old town due to asthma issues (not helped by the quick paced walk from port to old town). Once in the old town, she addressed expertly all questions and paced the tour wel.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear John, thank you for your kind words. All the best to you and your family.
Drew M.United States
Katja was real fun to be with and was a great guide. We took the ferry to Brac, which was a truly wonderful experience. We toured a large part of the island in a very comfortable van. Of particular interest was touring the school for future stone masons - their work is amazing. The most fun we had was wine tasting at Stina Winery. It is a great old building with modern decor. The setting for tasting was relaxed and intimate (we had a group of 4 with Katja) and the wine was excellent!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Drew, thank you for your review! I'll remember our tour as one of most amusing ones and hope you will too. It was my pleasure to organize this tour for you and see you enjoy it. Best wishes to all of you!

If you are interested in seeing more of Split than the beautiful seaside I would highly recommend this tour with Katja. She planed a perfect day for us. In addition to getting to see and experience Roman ruins we had a local lunch that was delicious in so many ways. Another reason this tour was fantastic was that if gave us time to get to know Katja and hear her explanation about Croatian economy, culture, education, politics. Highly recommend this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Eileen, Thank you for your kind words. It was truly my pleasure. Kind regards, Katja

This tour was a wonderful introduction to the natural beauty of Split and also the creative genius of various artists. Katja was very knowledgeable about her home land and made us feel welcome in so many ways. If you are considering a tour of Split I would highly recommend Katja. Her English language is perfect.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Eineen, thanks again. Greetings to you both. I'm so glad you enjoyed my perspective of Split. It was a great day! Best wishes, Katja
David JacobUnited States
Katja was soooo much fun. She convinced me to visit Split! And, she was right.!! Many people just go to Dubrovnik, but Split deserves a place on everyone's itinerary . Katja took me through the winding streets of the old city, and to places outside the city. She is charming, sweet & very knowledgeable. She is punctual, takes care of all the details.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David! It was sooo much fun. I admit I had a feeling I was not working at all. Wish you all the best! Was great meeting you!

Katja was extremely helpful in organising our itinerary to make the most of our day in Split. Krka National Park was just beautiful and very refreshing, especially after many ports of call which involved long, hot walks through ancient ruins. The side trip to Trogir and walk through the Old Town was most interesting and the views of Split from Marjan Hill were quite spectacular. A wander through Diocletian's Palace finished off our day in Split beautifully. Thanks for a great day Katja
Judy BatesUnited States
Very expensive and disappointing. Katja stated early on that she was very disorganized when planning tours. She asked for $150 American for her driver, then spent 20 minutes changing money. We were only able to fit two sites into our time frame of four hours and finally asked to be taken back to the ship. She spent all of the time in the car on her cell phone or talking to the driver; we were not told any history along the route nor did we have interesting things pointed out to us. Quite terrible.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Since it was impossible to arrange the itinerery with Mrs Bates in advance, eventually I advised her to rent a vehicle and a chauffeur and organize her 4 hours according to her wishes & her walking disability. But she and her daughter couldn't decide what they want even when they arrived to Split. The money was their duty to change before the tour beginning. After only two hours they ended the tour complaining of terrible headache and completely uninterested in any of my suggestions.
