Dino was OUTSTANDING. We have used Tours by Locals all over the world and he is among the very best. Dino is a history professor, full of knowledge and humor. He gave us a very thorough tour of Split, and a very enjoyable day. Highest recommendation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Keith. I'm so glad to meet you all and especially that you had fun on my tour. Thank you very much!

Outstanding! Although we had expected to see more of the city we were very happy to get the extensive and informative tour of the ancient palace that had only been excavated in the 1950's--Dino is very bright and very knowledgeable but also extremely funny and occasionally irreverent--we had some great discussions about the past as well as the current situation there--the tour does involve a lot of standing. This was our first time there and I would highly recommend Dino.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Chris Thank you so much! It was my personal pleasure that you really enjoyed the tour and especially that you appreciate a good joke. My best regards to y'all :)

Excellent tour--easy to set up and it was a fun day. The Krka waterfalls are very cool and worth the trip! Dino was enjoyable and knows Croatian history extremely well. Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Doug, Thank you very much, it makes me really happy knowing that you had great time. All the best to you and your lovely wife.

We spent two days with Dino, the first in Split focused on Diocletian's Palace and the second day visited Trogir & Klis Fortress. A professional with all the knowledge and a wit as well. We enjoyed our time with Dino and recommend his services to anyone. Not someone who has been in town for a year and hustling extra money, he is born and raised in Split, degreed in history and has years of guiding experience. Lots of choices, but Dino wIll not disappoint!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks again- lucky is the next guide you gonna be his/her clients!!! All the best to all of you- may we meet again!!!

My wife and I along with our adult children and son in law spent 3 hours exploring Split and primarily Diocletian's Palace. We found Dino to be knowledgeable and entertaining - we learned much about the history and culture of the area. We had so much fun we hired him for the next day as well! Dino is a professional and worthy of your time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks John, You and your family are the best!!! All the time I had the feeling that I was with my friends I knew from before. Don't ever change!

We had the best time with Dino. He's hilarious and knowledgeable and really made a point to show us things that we were interested in. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to learn more about Split's history!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Courtney, Thank you very much- the pleasure is mutual
Dino was a great guide. He was very informative and his gregarious, open, engaging and witty personality was a pleasure for the entire tour. His somewhat sarcastic perspective was a treat and lent a grounded and realistic outlook on historic and present day Split.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lesley, Thank you so much for this nice review. It was a real pleasure meeting you and your family. Greetings from scorching traffic jam ;) .

We spent a full day with Dino I. touring Diocletian's Palace, the city of Split and outside sites of Salonna (Roman ruins) and Trogir. He was one of the most educated, articulate (especially in archaeology) and comprehensive guides we have ever had. He has a great sense of humor and his personal insights on Croatian history as well as current life were fascinating. No guide could possibly convey more information on the palace and its underground footprint with more interest. We had a great day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Elisabeth, I couldn't be more fortunate to be a guide to you and your dear husband . Your amazing previous knowledge made my job much easier. As well as your sense of humor too. After our day together the only wish I have is to meet more people like you. Thank you again for everything, both of you are really amazing persons.

Excellent tour of Split. Dino really knows the history of the region which gives his tour far more contextual relevance than just a regurgitation of palace facts. He also blends in his exotic brand of humour which I found very funny! I highly recommend Dino.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Kevin, the pleasure was all mine. I also hope that the weather will be in your favor so that all of you can enjoy the real beauty of the Adriatic sea as you deserve. Greetings to everybody and many thanks again.
