Ivo was fantastic. He is incredibly knowledgeable about local areas in both Dubrovnik and Montenegro and had some great off the beaten path restaurant recommendations. He has a tremendous sense of humor and was in great spirits even after we hit an unexpected traffic jam. Highly recommend spending the day with this gem!

Ivo was the best tour guide! He was so engaging in his information. He had a great sense of humor. The island is pretty with red roof houses. He took us to the top of the mtn. The roads are so narrow and he executed them with expert driving! I wanted to go to a specific restaurant and he took us to his favorite local place. The food was beyond wonderful, the place had character and music! We went to old town and he told us about the bldgs. It was the best day!
Donna JohnsonUnited States

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the compliments Donna.Say hello to all of the girls and even to Mary.I miss you all and enjoy in the rest of your vacation.
Rebecca LubitzUnited States
Not very interactive or informative. Showed us pictures of the scenes and video clips. Didn't share any information on area except for scenes shot from show.....waste to not know what we were looking at.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Rebecca My apologies for not giving the best of myself but I had a very tough period those days. I assure you that this tour is way much than just about Got and can be interesting for all ages. Kind regards,

Ivo was a fantastic guide for my family of four for our day tour to Mostar. Ivo's sense of humor and quick wit had us entertained all day. He was also able to answer all questions we had with thorough and knowledgeable answers. Mostar is an interesting visit with lots of history, recent and past. He knows great places for lunch and refreshment stops along the way. We had a great and entertaining day with Ivo and will book with him when we return to Dubrovnik.

Ivo was knowledgeable, accommodating (important with 3 kids!) and friendly. A great experience!

Ivo did an awesome job guiding us through the Peljesac Peninsula. It was easy to change our pickup location to the Old Town instead of the cruise port and we did lunch in Mali Ston. Oyster tasting and wineries visits were perfect. Highly Recommended.
Kimberly EversonUnited States
Awesome guide and lots of fun. I would recommend Ivo with no hesitation.
Kelly HastingsUnited States
I would rate this tour 5 stars!!!! It was wonderful! Ivo was a great tour guide. He drove us from Dubrovnik to Split stopping in Ston at an oyster farm. The best oysters and mussels we have ever eaten. We stopped several places on the way to Split and it was so enjoyable with Ivo! Definitely recommend Ivo for any tours or specialized tour like ours

Ivo was an excellent and informative guide and we had a splendid day. It had long been a wish of ours to visit Mostar and it was fabulous. Thank you.

Ivo is a super guide. We requested a tour into Bosnia, since we had been to Dubrovnik several times before. He is very fluent in English. Knows all the slang. Easy to talk with. He made restroom stops in nice places. He handled the border crossing smoothly. He explained the history and current social attitudes of places we passed. As we are older and struggle with mobility, he minimized our walking and still gave us the viewsHe provided us exactly what we asked for including a lunch of local food.
Bosnia-Herzegovina is a fascinating place and definitely worth a visit from Dubrovnik. The tour was well paced and gave you a wonderful snapshot of the country and its history. Ivo was everything you could hope for in a guide. Funny, charming and responsive to our needs, Ivo provided a unique insight into the area we would not have otherwise had. Our time with him and this tour stands out as a highlight in a holiday full of amazing sites and people. Thank you Ivo.
Ivo was a wonderful guide. He provided valuable, insightful information and personalised service and was happy to answer any questions. He was flexible, allowing us to decide how long to spend in each location based on our needs and interests. He knew exactly how to time things to beat the crowds. Ivo also had a great sense of humour and kept us entertained for the entire car ride. The tour itself was wonderful - Such beautiful scenery, history and wonderful food!
Joseph WrightUnited States
Ivo's tour was one of the highlights of our 14 day cruise. He was great tour guide with plenty of local knowledge coupled with a sense of humor. He kept us active all day. Really enjoyed the visit to Ston and the history behind the town and its version of the great wall. The wine tours were awesome. We did three and he hit the mark with one small, one medium and large. The oyster tasting was outstanding as well. Forgotten to mention the walking tour through Dubrovnik Old Town was a real treat as well. Hig

Ivo was great. Had great information on the Game of Throne's locations. Even if you are not that interested in Game of Thrones, which one of our group was, he made it just as interesting and entertaining for her. No doubt if we ever come back to Dubrovnik, we will definitely check on his availability. Also, Dubrovnik is an unbelievably clean and beautiful city that we all enjoyed - we just didn't have enough time to really enjoy the city.
Ira KasdanUnited States
Ivo was very knowledgeable, personable and engaging. His excitement about Dubrovnik is contagious. We was great about giving us options on where to go & and what to see given our preferences, traffic conditions, etc. So we felt he really helped us to maximize our tour. He also pointed out scenes that would make good photographs and offered to take photos of my wife and I together a number of times throughout the tour. Touring with Ivo was fun.
Theodore KolvaUnited States
Ivo knew his stuff and was beyond sharp and witty. Made us laugh a lot while conveying his vast knowledge. Also a good driver, which on those mountainous roads, was a huge asset. Took us away from the swarm of people in Old City Dubrovnik, but also gave us essential information about Old Town. Very astute. Highly recommend.
Heather BaileyUnited States
Very knowledgeable of the history of the region. Due to his experience with this tour, he was very skillful at avoiding the crowds. He brought the historic sites to life with background stories. He selected a great spot for us to sit and have lunch on the water.
David PalmerUnited States
A good tour to Montenegro. We especially enjoyed the boat ride out to the small church. Kotor is beautiful and we had a interesting tour of a church filled with Roman artifacts. Ivo was a solid guide, punctual, a good driver, and helpful. We did have a bit of a communications snafu about getting some lunch. Luckily we found a pizza stand on our own and were satisfied. We did appreciate that he suggested leaving an hour early to avoid the border crowd. It worked.
We had a lot of fun doing the Game of Thrones Tour with Ivo. It was also good to see outside of Dubrovnik city and learn about the history. Would highly recommend the tour, don't hesitate to book! Linda

Terese ToddUnited States
5 plus stars!!! We booked this tour last minute and we are so glad we did. We went for a Game of Thrones tour and got so much more. Ivo was very engaging, and gave us a lot of information on Croatia. He is a credit to his country. We really enjoyed seeing the Game of Thrones sights, but left being more impressed by this lovely young man. He even helped us plan out the rest of our day! We will definitely go back!!
James KomadinaUnited States
I appreciate that the guides work long hours during the "high" season but it seemed Ivo was exhausted from numerous long days prior to our tour. Not his best effort.
Marta KoczwaraUnited States
Korcula is #1 place to visit while visiting Croatia. Our guide Ivo was great, very polite, informative, helpful. We highly recommend Ivo for all your day trips.
Marta KoczwaraUnited States
Our group of 8 people, had an amazing time visiting Montenegro with Ivo. Ivo is a great guide and driver. We highly recommend him.
Francisco GonzalezUnited States
Ivo is a great guide, very knowledgable about his country's history and current events. We had over 3 hours each way (from Dubrovnik to Split) in the car, and the conversation was filled with fun facts and discussion. Split and Trogir are lovely towns, and Ivo was very flexible in giving us the time we needed to fully enjoy the visit. I can highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Fran, And remember.Your at the first American ever on the Ciovo bridge :-P
