We had a wonderful day in Dubrovnik, thanks to Marijana! We really appreciated her knowledge and sense of humor. She is an amazing tour guide, and provided wonderful insight to the sights we were seeing! The weather did not cooperate with us, but that did not diminish the time we spent with her learning about Dubrovnik and Cavtat. Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Dale!! It was my pleasure to be your guide although the weather was not pleasurable at all, to say the least. Next time no rain, I promise! :-) All the best to you all! Sincerely, Marijana

Four of us booked a overview tour with Marijana. It was outstanding!!!! Marijana was so informative and a pleasure to learn from. She provided the perfect combination of history and current perspectives on Croatia and Croatian life. She readily adapted her comments and tour to our questions and desires. We recommend her without reservation..the best!!! One of the highlights of our Croatian visit.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Craig!! It was my pleasure! Hopefully memories you carried home will bring you back to my country. All the best to you all, Marijana

I feel sorry for other tour guides who have to be compared to Marijana. Her humor and friendliness are unmatched. She immediately made us feel welcome and we soon left like we were visiting with an old friend. She is extremely knowledgeable about Dubrovnik and was able to handle any question we had -- whether about ancient history or the modern events of the city and country. Consider yourself lucky if you are able to book this guide... she is one of the best I have ever used.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jason, I can't thank you enough for your kind words! I am glad to hear you enjoyed my tour because I enjoyed your company. Thank you for choosing me to be your guide and for taking time to share your experience. All the best, Marijana

I highly recommend Marijana for the following reasons: she ensures that you have the best experience on the Dubrovnik tour (she herself knows how to fun with travelers); provides a balanced itinerary and highlights the best attractions/sceneries that one has been dreaming of in Croatia. Very good driving skills along the one-way streets in Dubrovnik - good concentration while providing history/facts about the town. You really feel like you are with a local welcoming you to her home. Hvala, Marijana!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hvala Elizabeth, For the review, for your company and for being great guests!! I hope one day you come back! Hugs to you both, all the best and many more travels ahead. Sincerely, Marijana

The tour was short but fantastic. Dubrovnik a gem and what a beautiful city. The only concern is to much tourists might have a negative impact on the experience in future. Marijana a wonderful and friendly guide. The best guide we ever made use off. We will never forget her kindness. She did her best to relay the history to us in a limited time frame. Marijana is a engaging and bubbly guide with strong communication skills. We wish her the best for the future.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Johannes!! Thank you all for being such wonderful guests. Hopefully you'll visit us again and stay a bit longer. All the best to all of you, Marijana

The tour fit all my criteria : looking for Dubrovnik tour without climbing up the wall, not too much stairs, want tour with drive around town. This tour with Marijana fit them all. We are 2 middle age and 1 grandma. Got all the wrapped up history of Croatia finally ( on my 5th day in croatia ). First comfortable walk in old town, then take her car to Panoramic point. I was lucky, in Dubrovnik on no cruise ship day. Drive up hill was exciting and the view was just amazing. Thanks for unforgettable tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure Jun!! And thank you for teaching me about your culture too-that's why I love my job! All the best to you all and hopefully you'll visit us again. Kind regards, Marijana

Marijana was absolutely wonderful. She was very proactive about getting in touch with us a couple of days before the tour. When our ship arrival time was delayed, she made sure we knew that everything was fine, and we would still get our full tour. She knew all about the history, culture, architecture, and anything else I asked about Dubrovnik. I will definitely book another tour with her if we come back here.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Deborah for taking the time to write a review! It means a lot to me to read this. You were wonderful guests and it would be my pleasure to be your guide again! Hugs from Dubrovnik! Sincerely, Marijana

We loved our tour with Marijana S! A friend recommended her in particular, and she lived up to the great reviews! She drove us to Mt Srd and then we had a tour of Old Town. Great personality, very funny and engaging and very knowledgeable about Dubrovnik and Croatia's history. We felt like we really got to know her during our 3 to 4 hour tour. Marijana also gave us advice regarding our stay in Dubrovnik and recommended we go to Cavtat, which was a great idea. She also provided us with restaurant ideas.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Julie!! Thank you for taking the time to write this - it means a lot and for being such wonderful guests! It will be my pleasure to take you on a tour again on your next visit. Say hi to Jayne for me and thank Mary for the recommendation. All the best, Marijana

Tour: #353101, Bernard Glienke's Peljesac Peninsula Wine Tour, Oyster farm & Ston, Dubrovnik, Croatia    view tour
Date: Sep 18/19

On our second day tour with Mariana she took us to an incredible oyster farm tasting on Ston Bay with a lovely couple that were 7th generation oyster farmers. A definite must do! From there we went to another fortressed pair of towns, the salt beds of Ston, two wine tastings and a beautiful drive through the Dalmatia wine region. My only slight negative is that Mariana in her gregariousness is very opinionated and has no hesitation in sharing.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so muh Bernard for taking the time to write the review and for being my guests. It was a pleasure to share my country with you. I hope you come back one day. All the best to you, Kathy,Pam and Jim. Sincerely, Marijana

Mariana was completely conversational and ready to share personal stories. She definitely has a gift of gab and likes to be relational, she approached our tour as a whole experience giving us the historical facts as well as the impact of today's atmosphere of Dubrovnik. Once we let Mariana know we wanted the real history, it became a better overall tour. We enjoyed the fortress wall walk and learned a great deal about how they achieved success against their enemies.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Bernard, for choosing me to be your guide and for taking the time to write this review. It was a pleasure to take you on tour and to share our history with you. I hope you carried beautiful memories home and that those will bring you back someday. Sincerely, Marijana

Marijana was an excellent guide!! She was very knowledgeable and personable. Her suggestions were spot on, especially the oyster farm visit! She convinced us that it was worth the time and she was, without a doubt, right! We talked about that visit the remainder of our time in Croatia. I would highly recommend her as a guide and would use her again when we return to the area.

Marijana was friendly, funny & engaging. Her knowledge of the history of Dubrovnik & surrounding areas was impressive to say the least. Her first hand experience of the conflicts in her homeland was an eye opener for someone who has been lucky enough not to experience anything like that. If I could give more than 5 stars I would!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Geoff!! I hope the memories you took home with you will bring you back one day!! Until then all the best to you and your family. Sincerely, Marijana

Marijana gave us the most amazing day trip to Korcula, the largest of Croatia's many islands. Marijana was very informative, giving us a great insight into the history of Croatia, places along the route such as Ston and of course the island of Korcula itself. But that is only half of it. As well as being so informative and never tiring of answering our many questions Marijana was great company. Fun and amusing, full of great tales and simply made it a most enjoyable day out. Highly recommend

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: THANK YOU NIC!!! You two were amazing company and I am lucky you picked me as your guide! I hope you will come here again ..I'll have more tales! I promise! Hugs to both of you, M.

My fiance and I did a wine tour to Peljesac with my Marijana and we couldn't say better things about our experience! She picked us up near where we were staying and drove us to Ston and then took us to 3 wineries. Along our drive, she told us history about the areas we were driving through and Dubrovnik as a whole. She was so personable and we spoke to her the entire ride! I would highly recommend Marijana! She is personable, knowledgable, kind, and an experienced tour guide/driver. Thanks Marijana!!

We had a wonderful tour of Old Town Dubrovnik with Marijana, including walking the wall and she did a fabulous job on the tour. She is very knowledgeable, but more importantly she has a great personality which made for such a fun time with her. We also had a second tour with Marijana the next day which was equally excellent! I would highly recommend her.
