I would indeed give Mikal a 5-star review. He was organized and very knowledgeable. I have always been interested in Dubrovnik. Mikal handled the camera well and it was almost like being there. We will definitely add Dubrovnik as a future destination. A big part of our desire to travel involves meeting local people and hanging out. This was a good way to do that, albeit briefly, and Mikal was easy to talk with. He obviously loves his city and enjoys describing it.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Stephen.!

Six of us took this tour of the old city of Dubrovnik, telling its history from the 12th century through to the scars from the bombardment of 1991. Our knowledgeable guide, Michael had a friendly manner, answering questions and chatting with us. The virtual nature of the tour gives a chance to see the sights without the crowds and the guide ended by panning round to give an overview of the route we'd taken. Our group considered the tour to be terrific value, encouraging us to visit when travel is allowed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Catriona, thank you so much for your kind comments. It was a pleasure to be your guide and it means a world to me to be able to share my city in these most unusual circumstances for all of us. I look forward to welcome you on your next visit to the city in I hope not too distant future. Please pass my regards to all other members of the group.

Functionally bilingual in English and Croatian, Michael is the ideal guide for the town of Dubrovnik, of which he knows every corner and turn. We also appreciated his flexibility and kindness given our large group. His driver Niko was likewise excellent, and we saw everything we had come to see and a lot more. Though Dubrovnik is small (40,000 inhabitants or so), Michael made it seem bigger by placing in its historical context. A superb half-day -- we cannot recommend a tour guide any more highly.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Hadi, best regards to you and your family, best wishes in the new year !

Michael was a great tour guide, with the unique personal perspective of someone who grew up in the old city of Dubrovnik. He provided an extremely thorough and interesting history of the country, the region and the city, from the middle ages through the wars and into modern times. He even sprinkled in some fun facts and visits to filming locations for “The Game of Thrones” TV series. We very much enjoyed our day with Michael and grew to love Dubrovnik in our short time there. We highly recommend his tour.

From the first email with Michael, I knew we were going to have a terrific experience! Michael made everything so easy for us to have a full tour for our afternoon in Dubrovnik. Michael arranged all the details. He met us at the ferry with a car/driver and brought us to the airport at days endMichael's tour was the best! He covered the history and also current life in Croatia. Most fun was sharing his role as an extra in Game of Thrones! We had a great lunch at the restaurant at the old Naval Yard, too.

Guide Michael met us at the gangplank of our cruise ship in Dubrovnik, and emailed us upon arrival. The van was comfortable. Michael was knowledgeable about the area and gave us just the right amount of information. The wine was wonderful and the restaurant for dinner was fabulous. Every aspect was as smooth as clockwork. I would highly recommend the guide and private tour booking.

Michael was a pleasure to have as our tour guide and I would definitely recommend him. There were 2 of us so we were able to see a lot of his hometown of Dubrovnik. Our goal was to see many of the locations where Game of Thrones was filmed and to be educated on the history of Dubrovnik. Michael had a book with the GoT scenes so we were were able to compare the images to the locations to see what final product was. He was even an extra in some of the scenes! Thank you Michael! We loved visiting your city!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Kim. It was great meeting you and Tom and I am glad you enjoyed our tour !
