Excellent tour. Well managed so we avoided the crowds completely. The four of us really enjoyed it, learned what we wanted to and felt as though we got a good feel for Debrovnik given the shortness of our stay.

Ivana gave us a fascinating tour of Dubrovnik including a round of the fortified walls. In her flawless English she is able to deliver a full account of this remarkable city and inhabitants and their role in the history of Croatia. Recommend without hesitation.
Bruce LawsonUnited States
I have used Tours by Locals in other cities and continue to be impressed by the quality of the guides. My tour with Ivana in Dubrovnik was among the best tours I have ever taken simply because she was so knowledgeable about the city and the things I wanted to see and she is very articulate. Besides being educational, it was fun and the time flew by. We had planned out a tour in advance but made modifications along the way because of specific interests. Just a great tour and a great guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bruce, thank you so much for choosing my tour and I definitely had a day I will remember in a very very long time. Stay safe and enjoy once you're back in Dubrovnik, you're well prepared to give a tour to anyone from your cruise, we made sure to see all the hidden streets :)
Terry BrowerUnited States
Ivana did a great job. She provided lots of interesting historical background and her passion and energy were terrific. Also Tours by Locals was great to work with overall.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Terry, it was a pleasure to show you all best parts of my city while seeing an honest interest coming from you, it makes my job heavenly, thank you for choosing my tour! I hope to see you again in Dubrovnik :)
Lesley DisbrowUnited States
We can't say enough wonderful things about Ivana and our tour of Dubrovnik, Croatia. Dubrovnik is filled with history and beauty. Ivana shared with us some very interesting and exciting facts about the city. We also enjoyed beautiful panoramic views while she answered all of our many questions. We were also travelling with 2 teenage children who she was able to keep engaged, as well! We would most definitely recommend Ivana.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lesley, thank you for finding time and leaving me a comment, I was honored to be your Dubrovnik's host. Your teens were amazing and I hope to see all of you at least once again in Dubrovnik :)
Steve NollUnited States
Ivana hosted us for a wonderful tour of Dubrovnik. She worked around our schedule and even met us at mass prior to our tour. Once she warmed up she taught us so much. I loved hearing her perspective on the recent war and the breakup of Yugoslavia. It was so personal it brought tears to my eyes. I am glad to see that Croatia is a better place than the country she grew up in. Ivana is very personable, and is easy to converse with. She went out of her way making our tour special for our family. Thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Steve, the day I spent with your family was a blessing for me. Your children are amazing and your family is a role model of what togetherhood stands for. Thank you for all your questions because you made my job easy and you pointed me in the correct direction that the tour needs to take place. I hope to meet all of you at least once again in Dubrovnik :)
Stuart RobertsonUnited States
Ivana was GREAT!!!!!!. She did a custom GoT / traditional history tour for our group of 6. She covered everything we could have asked for. In addition, because she is a true local, we got all of the flavor of her growing up in the city. I would highly recommend her for any tour. She also left us with several recommendations for us for the rest of the day. They were spot on as well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Stuart, thank you for making my day!! I enjoyed your company very much and I hope to see you again in Dubrovnik :)

Ivana did a great job of showing me Dubrovnik and surrounding area. Excellent color on the history of the city and the tour of the Game of Thrones filming sites was first class. Exellent driver ( Pavo) gave me a mini family history as well. I will be going back!
