Ivo knew his stuff and was beyond sharp and witty. Made us laugh a lot while conveying his vast knowledge. Also a good driver, which on those mountainous roads, was a huge asset. Took us away from the swarm of people in Old City Dubrovnik, but also gave us essential information about Old Town. Very astute. Highly recommend.

Ivo C. was very knowledgeable about the interesting city of Dubrovnik and the history of Croatia. He was sensitive to the diversity of the group (ages 5-75) and the desire of some to walk around and for others to sit and enjoy. He made it possible for both/all to enjoy.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Madeline.I am glad that you all enjoyed and had a wonderful time.I also hope that you will come back to Dubrovnik and stay a little bit longer.

Ivo was an excellent tour guide for Dubrovnik, Croatia. He was very knowledgeable, flexible and had an excellent sense of humor. We book a private tour with Ivo; there were 18 of us mostly seniors with different needs and wants but he was able to shepherd us along with no problem. Our ride was an almost brand new Mercedes Benz with AC that could fit 18/19 people. Everyone in our group totally enjoyed our time with Ivo. We will not hesitate to book with him again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Gloria, I also had a great time.Your group was amazing and you should come more often to Croatia.Next time we will organize a karaoke showdown and get more beer for the guys :-)

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 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!

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.

Please know that we were very pleased with the services Ivo provided to us. He was knowledgeable, charming, and very accommodating. My group would give him the highest rating available.
Malvina NicollUnited States
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.
Dr. Larrie GreenbergUnited States
Ivo was there on time and gave us a terrific tour. He is passionate about his country and provided some political conversations that were interesting, including historical ones. We also saw what was lwft of the Jewish ghetto, which extended the tour. He did not mind. we traveled so comfortably in his air-conditioned car. He is a gem
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Larrie, thank you so much for the kind words. Glad that you had such a great day and that the tour gave you everything you needed. Wish you all the best.
