Niksa is a solid GEM of a guide in Croatia. Not only does he have a very friendly and personable demeanor BUT he knows his country, VERY well. Niksa exemplifies just why one chooses ToursByLocals. Niksa was amazing on ALL four of the trips he arranged for us. Dubrovnik, Bosnia , Montenegro and the peninsular. His driving was always safe, in a very comfortable vehicle. Niksa is SO informative on all aspects of his beloved country. His humour never fails! My family LOVED Croatia but LOVED Niksa even more

Niksa gave us an exceptionally fine tour from Dubrovnik to the Bay of Kotor in Montenegro. He kept up a steady, conversational stream of insightful information about the area, the lives of its people, and the changes of the last decades. We especially appreciated hearing his personal experiences and perspectives on the war and recovery. He accommodated our time constraints by designing our trip to fit in as many key sights as possible. We recommend Niksa very highly as he is a guide to the area.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear John, Thank you kindly for your words and I am very pleased to hear that you have enjoy your day with me. Also, thank you so much for all of your question and for showing interest about our heritage and history. I truly hope that now you are able to say that now you know much more about us than what you knew before you arrived here. Once again thank you for your nice words and for visiting Croatia. Sincerely Niksa

The itinerary into Montenegro, ferry to Tivat, visit in Kotor was lovely. A comfortable Mercedes minivan and a very good bus driver - Johnnie. We could have done without the Kotot tour guide who gave a monologue - a walk around by ourselves would have been more fun. We stopped for lunch in Stari Mlini just outside Kotor and although the place was idyllic, we had the most unpleasant, surly waiter. Our guide was pleasant and helpful, but spoke too much, in a confusing way.

Niksa was a great guide. He is passionate about his country, culture and its history. The tour to Montenegro was very special, a highlight of our trip. Stopped for a wonderful lunch on the return. I highly recommend Niksa!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Pamela, Thank you for your kind words. I do apologize that I kept you a bit longer on the tour, hope you had enough time to relax before the dinner. Also, I hope that you have enjoyed in the rest of your Croatian holidays. Thank you for your trust. My sincere and best wishes to you all, it was a great day! Best regards, Niksa

Niksa is a wonderful guide, Montenegro, is OK. we did it because my daughter wanted to have new stamps on her passport. It does not have very much to offer, maybe next time I rather take the wine tour with Niksa, because He is really a great guide. Niksa gave us his prespective of the 90' war in the former Yugoslavia, He is very attentive and entretaining. You can't go wrong with Niksa.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Martha and Alejandra, I am happy to hear that you enjoyed my company and I am sorry to hear that you didn't like Montenegro that much. Wine tour is a different kind of the tour and I hope that one day when and if you will return we will do that wine tour in full size! Thank you for your kindness and I must say that I did enjoy in your company very much! Sincerely, Niksa

We just had the most wonderful day in Montenegro, thanks to our guide, Niksa. Niksa was prompt, friendly and extremely knowledgable. He kept the day moving at a nice pace, while allowing us time to enjoy some exploring. To say that he was concerned about our welfare and whether or not we were enjoying ourselves is an understatement. He asked us about our comfort and was very flexible about changing the plan if we wanted to. Niksa gave us a fantastic memory and we feel like he is a new friend. Thank you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Elisabeth, Jake, Alissa and Bob, I enjoyed every moment that I spend with you. I look forward to your next visit to Dubrovnik. Thank you! Your friend, Niksa

Niksa is an outstanding, enthusiastic,knowledgeable guide. We took the day tour from Dubrovnik to Montenegro. Niksa was prompt in picking us up at our hotel, and helped us out immensely with the Croatian history. Niksa made sure we were comfortable throughout the tour. Everything he did was handled in a professional, gracious, and friendly manner. We would definitely book with Niksa on our next trip to Croatia.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Estelle and Stuart, Thank you for your kind words, and I really hope to meet again soon. It was a pleasure to spend the day with you and I really enjoyed your company so much. Wish you all the joy of life to you and your family.
Niksa provided an excellent tour and service from initial preparation of custom tour to execution. Excellent communications by email and whatsapp before tour. Punctual, very clean and comfortable vehicle (we were given a choice of car or van), informative commentary. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr Colin, Thank you for your kind words and thank you for your interest in my services. I really hope that you enjoyed your visit to Croatia and it was a true pleasure for me to be at your service. Kind regards, Niksa
Daniela RojasUnited States
TWO THUMBS UP!!! We had the best time we could have ever imagined visiting places in Montenegro thanks to our tour guide Niksa!! Not only he was polite, knowledgeable, on time, good driver, funny, he tried to show us as much as he could in the time we had we him. Every time he could he would tell us what to see, of the history behind it. We all came back praising he has been out best guide ever!! And we were people from 6 different countries! We would recommend him without any hesitation!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Daniela, Regardless of all the differences between us, and regardless that we met that day for the first time in our lives, I had a feeling that I was on a vacation with you and not that I am your guide. It was a great pleasure for me and I hope that one day you will come again for longer stay. Truly, Niksa
Terry JohnsonUnited States
Great tour and wonderfully knowledgable and enthusiastic guide. Would heartily recommend to everyone!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Terry & Steve, Thank you for your kind words. I am very happy and pleased to hear that you enjoyed your trip that much. Truly, Niksa
An excellent day - informative and interesting. We had an earlier tour with Niksa to Herzegovina which was great. The trip to Montenegro did not disappoint. If we had more days, we would have visited other areas with him. It was wonderful seeing the country from his perspective. He was also always considerate of our interests and needs.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Andrea, Once again, thank you for your kind words! I am very happy to hear you enjoyed both of the tours. Hopefully you'll return to Dubrovnik so you can explore all the other areas. Regards, Niksa

We would like to thank you for the excellent day trip of the Bay of Kotor. Niksa, you enhanced our appreciation for your part of the world while making our trip fun. Ivan, our driver, we appreciated your humour. Gentlemen, your enthusiasm is a credit to TBL. We even spotted the 'elusive banana trees of Montenegro'!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mary, Thank you for your great comment. It's so good to hear that you enjoyed your trip that much, and sorry for not knowing about bananas in Montenegro. In order to improve our knowledge of plants in Montenegro, this winter we will organize a botanical research tour and to improve our knowledge and who knows, maybe we will find something new what will deny Darwin's theory. We'll keep you informed. :) Thank you once again and for your nice words and for visiting Croatia. Sincerely, Ana, Ivan & Niksa
Bryan GreenUnited States
Niksa and driver Ivan were amazing today! They were very knowledgeable, friendly and extremely courteous. I would recommend them to anyone
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bryan, I Thank you for your kind words, sincerely hoping to see you once again. I wish you, your wife and daughters all the luck and happiness, lots of love and understanding. It was a privilege and joy having you today with us, please don't forget: After pipi, never miss a kviki!!! Warmest regards, Niksa

Niksa did an absolutely great job. We loved all the stops and he was very informative. He set us up with a tour guide to go into Kotor who was also very knowledgeable. We really enjoyed our day and enjoyed seeing Montenegro through Niksa's eyes. Great job, and would highly recommend.
