Thank you Vjeran for an amazing tour of Trogir and the Diacletian Palace. We had a great time with you and your driver. Your knowledge of the area was incredible. We hope to return again, and would certainly look to do another tour with you! Your restaurant recommendation was "spot on", and loved every bite!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Dale (and Brenda, Tom and Donna), Luka and I had an amazing time with you and we are so grateful; for everything... Showing you around was a privilege. And, reading what you wrote here made me so happy (and, again, grateful). So, I'm glad you enjoyed visiting this part of Croatia and I hope this is just one of your many visits to our country. Luka and I would love to tour with you again. We're looking forward to our next "adventure" together. Thanks, again and take care!

VJ was a WONDERFUL guide - he showed us the major sites in Split and then took us to the beautiful mill. He customized the itinerary for us per our request and he was spot on! He went above and beyond to ensure that everything went well for us - he even had someone reserve a parking spot for us in the old town until we got there! He is VERY personable and VERY knowledgeable! I HIGHLY recommend VJ for all Split area tours!!!!!!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It's so easy to do what I do when your clients are so amazing. It even feels wrong calling you clients; our tour, for me, was like spending time with friends. I can't thank you enough for being so great to me. And, of course, for these kind words. You have no idea how much your comment means to me. It would be great if I had a chance to rate you... You are everything a guide can ask for. It was such a privilege to be your "host" in Split. I hope we'll get another chance to meet. Take care.

Vjeran is a first-rate guide in every way! Clever, informative, helpful, flexible and even knew where to find restrooms. Could not have asked for a better guide or friend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for saying all this! I can only reply the same way; couldn't have asked for nicer, kinder or smarter people to spend time with. It was pure pleasure and such a privilege (to be your guide). I hope we'll meet and tour together again.

Vjeran is an amazing tour guide & host for Croatia!! He is extremely knowledgeable, accommodating & organized. We arrived on celebrity constellation, he picked us up from the port & took us on a brilliant tour of Trogir & Split. We learned so much & had great fun in the process. We wouldn't return to Croatia without booking another tour with Vjeran; we highly recommend him!! Thank you Vjeran!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I can't thank you enough for what you wrote here. But, believe me, I'm very grateful. This means so much to me. What I do would mean nothing without your satisfaction. But, spending time with you was not working; it was having fun in the company of extraordinary people. Thank you for that, too (for being great)! I'm very happy to hear you might return to Croatia and have me as your guide, again. I'm looking forward to that. Take care!

Touring with VJ was GREAT!!! There were four of us, and VJ sat in the middle of the van so everyone could hear. It was a wonderful mix of Croatian history, comments about current events, and the importance of what we were seeing in the various places we went. VJ is very flexible, and will modify any part of a tour to accommodate special needs or varying interest levels. VJ is an interesting person and was a delight to be with.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lew, spending time with the four of you was a great privilege for me. You were so nice and kind (and very smart) and it was pure pleasure showing you around. Thank you for such a great experience. And, thank you, so much, for this comment you wrote; it means a lot to me and makes me love what I do even more. I do believe we'll meet again and I'm really looking forward to that. Take care!

The best guide we've had in dozens of countries visited. VJ was kind to adjust schedules to take us on last minute. He was professional & courteous to us having small children (tour pace/car seat/cold bottled water) & during the tour we felt like we were hanging out with a good family friend who was showing us the city. Luca our driver was great. We were able to speak on more than GoT & discussed history & other topics. He was able to show us locations that large tour groups could not reach. Recommend!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Krishna, what can I say to this wonderful comment?Believe me, you can not imagine how much this (your words) means to me.Thank you for motivating me and making me love my job even more.It was such an amazing experience showing you around and having a chance to meet you.You have a great family and your kids are fabulous.I loved every moment we spent together and it would really be great to meet you again.There are many other things to see in this part of Croatia.May God bless you and your family

Great tour! Vjaran is very nice person, he took us in a minibus to Trogir is a beautiful town and then to Split to the Diocleciano Palace. I he knows a lot and he makes all the history interesting. Highly recommend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Leanne, Thank you for such a great day/tour I had with you and, of course, for these kind words. Being your guide was so easy; it felt like I was on vacation. You were so kind and nice and I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your visit. Needless to say, I hope we'll meet again and, maybe, explore together another part of Croatia/Dalmatia. Until then, I wish you all the best. Thanks, again and take care! Vjeran

Vjeran is a good Croatia Tour Guide. He showed us his beautiful home town city passionately. He took us to Trogir, a lovely settlement with small yachts calling the port. That made our visit to Split a wonderful trip with all good memories. His explanation was clear and he is a patience and polite tour guide. We definitely will recommend our friends and all others to visit Split and book Vjeran as their guide as early as possible ! Once again, we thank you Vj for being our private tour guide in Split.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind words! It was such a great day; I'm the one who is thankful. I enjoyed every moment we spent together; getting to know you was so much fun. I'm looking forward to meeting your friends; thank you, in advance, for recommending me. I also hope I will get another chance to meet you and, maybe, show you another part of Croatia/Dalmatia. Thanks, again, for everything and take care.

Vjeran was fantastic, not only did we get to see GoT locations, but he added in much history of Split and of Croatia. He went above and beyond to give us a great tour. He is very knowledgeable of GOT and in history. Great tour, if you are in Split, get him for a tour, you will learn much. Thanks!!!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Joel, I couldn't have asked for better people to tour with. After tours like this one I really can say I have a great job. And then, this comment... I don't know how to express my gratitude. Your words mean a lot to me. Thank you!!! Being your guide was an amazing experience; I hope we'll have another chance to tour together.

Vjeran is an incredible tour guide - he has a great sense of humor, he is very knowledgeable, easy going and down to earth. It was a pleasure touring the Old Town with him, and learning about history, local coffee and everyday life in Croatia.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Anna, Thank you! I'm not sure I deserve all the compliments you gave me but you made me very happy. And, you motivated me to try to be more of a person you described. Long story short - I'm so grateful for this review. You are one amazing person. All three of you are fantastic and it was pure pleasure spending time with you. Thanks for everything!

We had such a great time with VJ. He was an excellent guide and had put together a tour that all 5 of us truly enjoyed. The best part about having a tour with him was our ability to be able to ask questions in a small group. He has a great sense of humor which made our tour even more memorable.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cheryl, Thank you for this comment. It might sound like a phrase but your words really mean a lot to me. I had a great time with you - your little group was amazing; so nice and smart. And, talking about sense of humor; I could learn from you. Long story short; thank you for everything. It would be great to meet you again. P.S. I, briefly, "checked" the "Shark Tank guy"... Robert Herjavec is quite "big". Thank you for telling me about him. Take care

Lucky enough to have day 2 with Vjeran. Showed us fabulous Trogir and then took us to a magical lunch outside of Trogir for Peka. This tour is not to be missed if you love food and nature. An unforgettable meal and an unforgettable man. Thank you Vjeran!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm the one who should say: "Thank you!"; we went to one of the most beautiful small towns in Europe (Trogir), ate one of the best Croatian dishes (peka)... And, I did all that together with a great couple that shared some truly interesting and impressive stories with me. The two of you made these 2 days (you used the right word) unforgettable. Again; thank you! I hope we'll meet (and eat) again. Take care!

Vjeran was a wonderful tour guide. Not only did we learn about Split but he was so warm and welcoming and proud of his country. He imparted a true feeling of warmth and kindness. We were glad we had two days with him. Very highly recommended.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: There are moments when I really have the easiest job in the world; when people I'm on tour with are so amazing that it feels like spending time with friends. You made me feel that way these two days and I can't thank you enough for all your kindness. And I'm so happy you felt my love for Croatia - I love my country and want to show it to everyone.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with VJ. Knowing our interest in building, structure and design, he took extra care in sharing his knowledge in this area. We learned so much about the history and culture of this city that he loves so dearly. We have had experience with many guides over the years and find him to be exceptional.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm the one who enjoyed... Thank you for being so nice and kind. This (being a guide) is what I do but, when I have people like you on my tour, it's much more - it's what I love and enjoy. And, I'm glad you felt my love for this city - I do love Split, a lot. Long story short; you made my day - thank you!

No question too much and lots of incredible insight and knowledge not only about Split but Croatia and its history from ancient times to date! Thoroughly recommended and thank you!

Such a beautiful part of the world. VJ knew and showed us all the best views. So many photos and happy memories. The visit to the old water mill was in a lovely, peaceful setting where we sat and enjoyed a glass of wine and we were lucky enough to see the mill working. This guide comes highly recommended

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I love Croatia and it makes me so happy when someone I go on a tour with likes it and enjoys it. It was great exploring some of the "hidden gems" with you. Thank you for this review and for a wonderful day I had with you. I would really love to meet you again and to show you more of this part of Croatia. Take care.

This was our very first time to Split and only limited to one night so we wanted to learn as much as we could about the city. VJ is an excellent guide, very polite and obliging and covered so many topics. We would highly recommend Vjeran :)

We cannot recommend Vjeran highly enough! His intelligence, knowledge and passion for his country and its history is only surpassed by his kind and gentlemanly manner. Vjeran was so considerate of all the members of our group and the challenge of the heat and humidity, while keeping us fully engaged in our surroundings, bringing to life the history of Split and Trogir. We only wish we had more time to spend in Split so that we could take another of his tours! Next trip!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Patricia (and Barbara, Jackie, Mary and Jonathan), It's just not possible to find words that will give you the right idea about how I felt reading your comment. Words like grateful and moved come to my mind. But are not good enough, for sure. What I wanted to say is that you, definitely, gave me a huge boost, you motivated me to try to be a better guide and a better person. Thank you!!! I loved every moment I spent with you. You are one amazing group of people! I do hope we'll meet again. Best
