A fantastic tour. Informative, quirky, very engaging guide - we loved it all. Selecting our fish for lunch was a highlight as was the the food and ambience.

Great recommendations for food and shopping, it was an absolute pleasure to spend time with Robert and we can highly recommend this tour. Amanda & Colin, Australia

Tour: #194865, Authentic private wine tasting where Zinfandel was born, Split, Croatia    view tour
Date: Sep 28/17

We were met promptly at the cruise port & immediately engaged in personable conversation. Both Robert and Jerry, the driver & wine educator, are extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic & comfortable to spend hours with! We were treated as friends! We learned a lot about the wine region, history and what it's like living in Croatia. We fell in love with the wines! The garden was beautiful to walk through too. We felt a world away from the busy cruise schedule. LOVED THE TOUR

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What wonderful guests! Hope to see you and your friends again!

My mom and I visited Split for the day while on a cruise and I have to say it was our FAVORITE day by far! Split was amazing in itself and rich with history, but I have to say the best part of our day was spending it with Robert and his guide. They were SO wonderful and full of passion for history, architecture and their home of Split. We cannot say enough great things about them both and we hope to meet with them again on another trip to Split!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It's really great to have people who come as "clients" become almost instant friends. Brittany and her mom (they MUST be sisters, both gorgeous!) made our day in Split together a dream. We could have spend a week and they would still be happy. We sure hope they visit again!

Robert is an A+ . He knows the city and is proud to show it off. We had a great time with him and his guide and would recommend this tour to everyone!!! As a surprise, he brought along a friend to show us other aspects of this beautiful city. Also, the lunch he arranged was outstanding.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Wonderful to have such a great group that appreciates how special this place is. Your support of the filigree jeweler was really appreciated...they called and wanted to know if you could have a drink with them after they closed! Best of luck on your future travels!.

Our day with Robert was fabulous. His feel for the pulse of Split knows no boundaries. He also brought his wife into our day, who helped us choose our seafood for lunch to be sent to the restaurant that would prepare it, and a licensed guide who shed historical light on Split's rich history. The highlight of our day was going down into a newly discovered Roman aqueduct with the man who discovered it and his son. We were the first tourists to don special gear and climb down into this underground marvel!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What a fabulous day! Ian and you were such a treat. We learned as much from you as you did from us...this is what the joy of travel is all about!

Robert was the perfect guide for us! He arranged for a wonderful young man to drive us to our grandfathers birth place in a quaint village outside of Split, where he was able to find the "family farm" and translate and share the customs! Before we visited the village of Velic, we toured Trogir and Robert's guide has wonderful insights into the church and island,then off to a private wine tasting and private lunch cooked by our fantastic driver "Sirjohn"

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the kind words...sure was great to help find the town of Velic and the Maric ancestral farm!

Expected Split/Trogir to be most important port of trip. Visited Dubrovnik twice before so familiar with Croatia. Robert was effective tailoring a tour to both location based on perceptions of our interests/background . Those on ship's tour didn't compare. Wonderful seeing an historical town vibrant today. Also food of today, fig ice cream stop, and a typical Peka meal (we chose octopus), which we now know how to make at home. As hoped for, this tour definitely met our high expectations.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Randy--clearly excited enough to leave your camera in my car, which is on its way to you in the states!!

I've recommended Robert to many friends visiting Split. Even for those not liking gelato (and Robert treats you to the best spots!) ... great insider view of Split. Great details, taking us into a few stores to see how the building accommodated the ancient structure. Great guide, and we have used Tours By Locals many, many times.

Robert was terrific. Since he is not a native of Croatia his guide explained specific aspects of the history and that was terrific. He arranged a special meal for us that was delicious. He was flexible and well informed. We actually enjoyed having the perspective of someone who is not a native. He has chosen to live in Split so he speaks of his adopted land with great fondness and insight. Highly recommended

Robert & his guide took us through the old city of Split, & also on a tour of Trogir, an amazing seaside city with beautiful ancient ruins & then on to Krka National Park where we toured again & swam in the beautiful waterfalls. We were a large group of 11, so Robert organized the rental of a large van to take us around Croatia. Robert is an extremely intelligent & worldly man who was 100% attentive & provided exceptional customer service for the 5 days we were in Croatia. We highly recommend Robert.

So happy to be with Robert & guide for Day 2. Today we traveled to Trogir-an incredible medieval town an hour north of Split. Their enthusiasm made it come alive as we explored the magnificent church, enjoyed the authentic "peka" lunch, and wandered the city noticing unique and interesting features. That evening we met Robert for a private wine tasting and were amazed by the quality of the Croatian wines-we want them in the US! He had so many interesting suggestions that we want to plan a return trip.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Waiting to send you boat loads of our best wine!! Great time with you folks, hope to see you back because there is SO much more to experience!!

Robert is passionate about Split & communicates that enthusiasm. He & his guide made the history of Split come alive & shared unique information that we wouldn't have discovered on our own. We went to fabulous bakery, had the best gelato in Split, & enjoyed a memorable meal at a local restaurant. We selected fresh fish from the market & Robert had the restaurant prepare it for us-unbelievable! It was like exploring the city with a good friend & he left us with great suggestions for the rest of our day.

Just wanted to drop a note an say how much we enjoyed your tour on June 30th. The biking and swimming was beautiful. Everything went off without a hitch which is no small accomplishment with our large group including kids and teens. Your service was top notch. Thank you again for a great time. Britt Bauguss (Michelle Beloit's group)

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It's always so amazing to me that just a simple 15 minute bike ride away from the center of a 1,700 year old Palace is such gorgeous scenery--islands in the distance, Marjan Hill as it swoops down to the sea and the waiting beaches to enjoy. And hats off to the kids who actually tried octopus and liked it!
