Frane was terrific . Very enjoyable tour. His enthusiasm for his beautiful country comes across from start to finish. Very flexible schedule. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Maurice, thank you for your kind words and thank you for your nice company today... I really enjoyed to show you the history, sites, customs and uniqueness of my region... enjoy in Hvar, Dubrovnik, and Montenegro! You'll like those destinations for sure :-) Hope to meet you all again, maybe in LA or at least on a vacation in Mexico :-) Take care and all the best, Frane
Bruce BowdenUnited States
Frane was a great host, accommodating a start time change the night before without any hesitation. His knowledge of Croatian history is comprehensive as he demonstrated on our visits to Trogir and Diocletian's Palace. He recommended a very nice local restaurant for lunch, and when he learned they did not have any of the interesting Croatian beers that he had been recommending, he went out and bought them for us while we had lunch: we will be tasting them tonight! He is also a big football (soccer) guy!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Bruce, hope you are enjoying the beers ... I’m on the village enjoying the best lamb on the spit :-) Hope you’ll have a great time on your biking tours.... you’ll see why Croatia is so popular in every simple but unique way... All the best to you and your family, Frane
Frane was absolutely brilliant. I was travelling with my elderly parents with reduced mobility and he planned the day accordingly. His knowledge is fantastic and he presents it in a very interesting way. We enjoyed the places we visited and the passion with which Frane "guided" us. He was extremely respectful of my parents which was great. My only slight negative is that the car is not the most comfortable for 4 people. Overall, I would love to tour with Frane again and highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Janet, thank you, my friends, I had a great day too... Hope one day you'll be back here to enjoy more of the Dalmatian coastline... All the best from Split :-)
Carol JohansenUnited States
We had a great day with Frane. He was a history major and so is a fountain of knowledge on Croatian history and has a nice way of connecting that history to the places we visited so it all made sense. The tour visited the coliseum, Trogir, and the highlight, Diocletian's Palace. We saw a lot in one day and felt that we left with an understanding of the history of what we saw. He dropped us off in time to walk around the old town of Split. Frane was a excellent driver and guide and we recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Carol, thank you so much for making the day so pleasent... Hope you learned some history and facts you’ll remember ... Hope one day you’ll have more time and I’ll let you discover more hidden and beautiful sites that are making Croatia so unique ... I wish you all the best to you and your wonderful family... See you soon my friends... Frane

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Gentile signora Virginia, grazie per la recensione da cinque stelle... È stata una giornata fantastica che la ripeterei sempre... Spero che vi siete divertiti durante le tre settimane sull' Mediterraneo che ci ritornerete presto... Per me ci vorrà un po' di tempo di trovare qualche giorno per una vacanza ma spero lo stesso di trovarlo e fare io il turista, magari in Sud Africa :-) Grazie ancora per la bellissima giornata a Spalato e a Traù; Cordiali saluti, Francesco
Robert RiechmannUnited States
frane was knowledgeable and very entertaining; I would certainly book this guide again if I was in split again. The trip to the little island was well worth the drive. We went to a locals only restaurant for lunch and I ate like a Croat.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Mr. Robert, I'm always trying to do my best and to bring my guests all the best of my homeland... don't know why a 4 star rating, but there's always a first time for everything :-) I wish you all the best and I hope we'll meet again...
Kevin BassettSouth Africa
If you miss Frane's traditional lunch you are just going to have to come back again to do it.... i know i am going to!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kevin :-) you all were such a nice company that the food had to taste great! I would repeat everything all again... And the Rakija too... Hope you'll have a great cruising through the Croatian Adriatic and that one day you'll be back again :-) All the best, Frane

Because of this tour we are very much in love with Split and want to go back to spend more time there! It is beautiful and there is so much to enjoy and do!

I want to tell you that Frane V, the guide we had in Split (Croatia), was VERY GOOD.

Janette CatalanoUnited States
Only problem was miscommunication with pick up. Fortunately someone Had a European phone and let us call Frane. After that the tour was wonderful!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Ms. Catalano, it was my pleasure to guide you through the Central Dalmatian region and to show you all the beauty that has to offer... Unfortunately I never received any info about the name of the cruise ship you were suppose to disembark from and that morning we had 3 different cruisers :-( ... in any case, this reminds me of Rebbetzin Dena Weinberg and her quotation: "There are no problems, only opportunities for growth." :-) All the best my friends... Your private guide Frane
Cynthia OlsenEverett, WA, United States
Frane was our first guide and he set the bar very high! On time courteous, knowledgeable, he made our journey so much fun. His knowledge of history is presented in a most interesting manner. He is also a very good listener to the clients stories, tales and jokes. Frane comes with the highest marks. He exceeded my every wish and expectation. Hire him.. You will fund a valuable fun experience in a personalized unique for you fashion and a new friend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mrs. and Mr. Olsen thank you really much for your feedback. I had so wonderful time with you and I also learned something new from you :-) Hope that your staying in Croatia will be pleasant, enjoyable, positively surprising, exited and wonderful as you all are :-) Hope to meet you again, and till then: "Live long and prosper"...
Heidi ThomasUnited States
Upon first meeting Frane we were treated like friends. He helped us in many ways to be comfortable on our first trip to Croatia. As he guided us through Trogie and Split it was clear he knew these cities well. He brought them alive for us. Our tour with Frane in Plivice Lakes National Park was fun and interesting. During our time with him we always felt he was informative and caring and helpful. He told us about himself so we had a connection to our visit. Thank you!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Mrs. and Mr. Thomas, I had a wonderful time too... hope you'll get a chance to visit Croatia again and to bring again the shine of your smile in my town and beyond... All the best, your private guide Frane

We are a family of four and took the Split/ Trogir tour June 6, 2014. Frane met us right outside where our ship was docked , Frane was on time and our tour started in Trogir. it was a wonderful experience , I highly recommend taking a private tour when visiting Split Croatia, we all have learned so much of the history of Split Croatia, and Frane even drove us to the a hill where we can view the entire of city of Solit . I highly recommend using Frane's services when visiting Croatia!! thank you Frane
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ms. Medalla, thank you to all, I had a wonderful time with you :-) Hope to see you again... All the best from Croatia
