Lori DewetterEl Paso, TX, United States
Marijana was fantastic! She was waiting for us outside our cruise terminal right on time. She drove us to a beautiful spot high above the city of Dubrovnik that had the most spectacular views of the city. She then took us to a charming seaside town and showed us around, giving us the history of the area. We then toured the old town of Dubrovnik and once again she was most informative and knowledgeable about her town and country. It was a great day and we are so glad we had this private tour with her.

Lisa NeumannUnited States
A wonderful but exhausting day walking the walls of Dubrovnik with Marijana. It was an extremely sunny hot day, she had warned us, but you can't understand it unless you do it. We all felt like we deserved a gold star for completing the day. She was passionate and knowledgeable. We asked if there was a Synagogue in the old city, and she completed our walking tour by taking us to it. She made a wonderful suggestion for lunch at Wandas. All and all the day was a great success.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lisa for this great review. I was very happy to be your guide and happy that despite the heat we did the whole Wall. To come to Dubrovnik and not do the Wall would be a shame. I am glad that you enjoyed the lunch recommendation. I wish all of you all the best, Marijana
Norman KleinUnited States
As this was our second visit to Dubrovnik, Marijana put together a great day of touring that included highlights of the Old Town, focusing on the Jewish quarter; a panorama view of the Old Town; a stop in Cavtat, and a visit to an old water-powered grain mill, where we also had a great lunch. Marijana was knowledgeable about all we saw, and also very personable and a delight to be with. We thoroughly enjoyed our second visit to Dubrovnik and would highly recommend Marijana as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Norman! I had a great time with you two and I hope to see you again someday!! Thank you for a beautiful day and I wish you all the best. Hugs to you and Barbara, Marijana
Fairuze SofiaUnited States
I really enjoyed the tour of Dubrovnik that I took with Marijana. She was interesting, personable, and clearly loves sharing the history of her city with visitors. As a tour guide, she was flexible and accommodating and had no problems modifying the tour to fit my specifics requests. I only had an afternoon in Dubrovnik and I feel like I was able to learn and see a lot in that short amount of time. Marijana will keep you entertained and leave you feeling impressed with the history you have just seen.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Fairuze!!! It was my pleasure to have you on tour!! I am sorry you didn't have much time ..good enough reason to come back. When you do, I'll be here.

We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Marijana. Before coming to Dubrovnik, we asked her if we could do the Dubrovnik walls and city tour with the Cavtat tour in the same day. She was quick to respond, combined the tours and we were set. When we met, we immediately felt comfortable with her vivacious personality. It was a very hot day but she never rushed us, answered all our questions and definitely met all our expectations. The afternoon in Cavtat and at the water mill were lovely. Happy tourists!

Tom RiordanUnited States
My family of 4 recently booked an excursion with Marijana of the Peljesac Peninsula. Marijana is extremely outgoing with an excellent command of English. She made us feel welcome in her country and was open to discussing just about any topic. The excursion began with her picking us up in her car and the first stop was an Oyster farm and a tasting of oysters pulled from the sea, after that we visited 3 wineries for tasting and finished with a stop in walled city of Ston. Very enjoyable day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Tom! You have a beautiful family and it was a pleasure to spend the day with you. I hope the rest of your trip was as enjoyable. Please give my best regards to your wife and daughters. Marijana

Marijana is the best tour specialist I had in 30 years of traveling. She is professional, intelligent and very knowledgeable and proud of her heritage and history. My wife and I and 3 kids loved the tour and the wall walk. The town is beautiful and the cost is gorgeous. Marijana was able to engage my 3 younger kids and keep them interested for several hours (not an easy task). I highly recommend her without any hesitation, you will thank me.

Marijana was a fantastic guide. She was very friendly, nice, warm, funny and knowledgeable. It was like hanging out with a best friend ! It was also insightful to hear about life in Croatia from her. If not for Marijana, i would not have enjoyed my first visit to Dubrovnik as much as if i had explored alone. (And also not have gone up the hill for the spectacular views of the Old Town and Harbour) I highly recommend Marijana. You will not regret it.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Marcus!!! I really enjoyed being your best friend in Dubrovnik! I hope you will take great memories home from your vaccation and I hope you come back soon...(before I retire-you promissed��)

Scott PennoyerUnited States
Marijana was amazing!!! Mariana was extremely knowledagable about everything and everywhere she took us. She was also very good and patient with our two children, especially our 6 year old. She was genuine and honest in relating her own experiences and thoughts when we asked questions. I always try to do at least one private guided tour on our trips, so that we can have interactions a local. Marijana is one of my favorites we had. I know we will be back, and I will request Marijana again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi there!!! Thank you so much for this review and more than anything thank you for choosing me to be a part of your family for the day because that is how I felt!!

I hope I see you all next year! Kisses to all and the biggest one to my 'no no no' little friend!
Kenneth L.United States
AMAZING!!! I have been using ToursByLocals for 6 years years now. They have never disappointed me. Marijana was another great guide. I booked a Walking Tour of Dubrovnik and the Walls. We met Marijana at the agreed time and our journey started immediately. I am still in awe of the knowledge these guides have. I booked this tour for approximately 3.5 hours. 4.5 hours later we were still going. She offered great historical knowledge of Dubrovnik while adding new stories of the city. Highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kenneth on behalf of my colleagues and me! It was a pleasure to take the three of you around! I trully enjoyed your company and time just flew by. I wish you all the best and lots of fun trips and great tours!! Give my best to the guys! Kisses from Dubrovnik, Marijana

Our tour of the Dubrovnik area by Marijana could not have been better. Starting with a trip to a spectacular overlook of the old town she then took us to Cavtat, a very lovely old waterside town and then on through the Konavle fields to the old mill. With her knowledge and easy going personality, Marijana discussed the historical, political and social aspects of each area we visited, making our tour so much more enjoyable and a real learning experience. We highly recommend her.

After an informative tour around the town, we were off to two nice wineries for tours and tastings.

Marijana is a wealth of information and is an accomplished guide. Our day with her was spent walking the walls and going into the Old Town. She has a quirky personality and is certainly not boring- EVER! We learned a lot from her and had it not been so hot, we would have climbed up Mount Srd. That girl came ready to do it- hiking boots, umbrella and all! We could not have asked for a better guide. Thank you, Marijana! Rain check on Mount Srd.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jolayne! Thank all of you for a great day and the free advices over lemonade :-) !!! I hope to see you again-my hiking boots are waiting! Hugs from Dubrovnik

My father and I came to Dubrovnik at the end of April 2018 as the beginning of our trip across Europe. The tour around Dubrovnik that Marijana gave my father and I was an experience to remember! She gave us a very in depth account of the history of Dubrovnik - both ancient and recent. We got to walk all around the city and visit the gorgeous view from upon the neighboring mountain. Marijana was also extremely understanding of when breaks ... longer time for photos :) ... were needed. Thank you Marijana!!

A big thank you Marijana for a great day, we had many laughs, swapped lots of stories. Susan and I will remember the day spent together for a long time - Thanks you.

Very charming and enthusiastic. Excellent English. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much!! It was a pleasure to be your guide.
We recently had the pleasure of being guided in and around Dubrovnik by Marijana. Not only is she a delightful person, after a few hours we felt that we had known her for years, but she is very knowledgeable and helped to make the history of that beautiful city come alive. She also drove us to several other interesting places out of the city. All in all a wonderful day. If you are going to Dubrovnik we would highly recommend that you use Marijana as your guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Randa! I really enjoyed spending time with you so the pleasure was all mine. I hope we meet again someday. All the best to you, Marijana
Marijana is a fantastic guide, personable, terrific English with a genuine feeling of fun. Extremely knowledgeable, but this tour could probably be modified to concentrate on Korcula and eliminate the fishing village on the other side of the island. Our group had a great time with her in Dubrovnik and here.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Fiorella, it was a pleasure having all of you here. And thank you for the suggestion, suggestions are always more then welcome.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Fiorella! I had a great time with you in Dubrovnik and Korcula. It was like having friends over. Give my best to everyone, Ron especially.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for the review! And thank you for having me as your guide, it was my pleasure!
Collected from our hotel and drove along the beautiful coastline to Ston where we had a walking tour. It was followed by a visit to 2 excellent wineries for tastings and then we asked her to recommend a good restaurant so we could eat before boarding our overnight ferry to Bari. Her personality is so engaging and her knowledge so extensive from local history to aquaculture, that the tour was really enjoyable. Her English is fluent and she tells great jokes!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for this great review! It was a pleasure to have you on tour and I really enjoyed your company. I wish you all the best. Marijana

Thomas OrmsethUnited States
We thoroughly enjoyed the 2 hour walking tour with Marijana of the old town of Dubrovnik. Given we scheduled the tour during our first morning in Dubrovnik and Croatia, Marijana nicely covered the topics of Croatia history, Dubrovnik history and all the specifics of the Old Town area. Marijana is an excellent tour guide, is very well informed and has a nice conversational style to spend time with. We would highly recommend that you select Marijana for a tour while visiting Dubrovnik.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for this wonderful review!! It was a pleasure to be your guide and spend time with you. I wish you all the best, Marijana

Marijana was not only a five-star guide, but the best guide of several which we have had from TBL. She is knowledgeable and entertaining, and she extended herself for us well beyond what we might have expected. If you are in her area, don't miss the chance to select her for a tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much!!! Not only you made me happy with this review but you also made me blush! It was a pleasure, and if you come here ever again...let me know. All the best, Marijana

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the review! Knowing that you enjoyed the tour puts a smile on my face and makes me love my job every day. And it is always nice to see those 5 stars!
Marijana gave us a terrific tour. She is a wonderful guide - very knowledgeable and communicative with a warm personality and superb English. We all (parents and three teenagers) thoroughly enjoyed the tour she gave us of Dubrovnik. She managed the time really well - giving us a bird's eye view first and then the detailed view. If I am lucky enough to return to Dubrovnik I would request her again for a tour. I couldn't recommend her highly enough. Mary, Co. Kildare, Ireland.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much!! It was a pleasure to spend time with your family! I hope I see you in Dubrovnik again . Sincere regards, Marijana

Martha AguilarUnited States
We loved the tour. Dubrovnik is a beautiful city and Marijana is a great guide. She provided all sorts of information about the city and the country and answered all our questions. She was always trying to direct us to the places less crowded (and with more shade) so we would enjoy more the city; she gave us tips about other activities (after our tour) and her tips were spot on.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Martha for your great review! It was a pleasure to be your guide and I am happy that you enjoyed my hometown. All the best, Marijana
Sarah ZaengleUnited States
Marijana was a wonderful guide for our recent visit to Dubrovnik. She took us all around the Old City and told us much of the history. She was both knowledgeable and well-spoken. I would not hesitate to recommend her to any visitors to Dubrovnik.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: And I had two wonderful ladies on tour! Thank you so much for the review, it was my pleasure. Say hi to Leah for me and I hope I see you again in Dubrovnik.
