Fred A.United States
Nikolina is a first rate, professional tour guide. Our 2 1/2 hour tour with her in Dubrovnik was way more than just Game of Thrones. She explained history, economy, social customs and so much more about Croatia. We saw everything we wanted in old town Dubrovnik and learned more than expected. She had a book with pictures of scenes from GOT that we could compare to actual locations which was great. She gave us helpful tips and suggestions for our free time too. Excellent tour with top rate guide!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Fred, thank you so much for all of your kind words. I'm glad that you have enjoyed the tour and that you will remember your stay in Dubrovnik. I wish all the best to all of you! Nikolina
Trudy RodenUnited Kingdom
An excellent day . Nikolina was very knowledgeable and professional and gave us information we would have missed in a big group tour. It was a good balance of old city , the water mills and then beautiful Cavtat. The pace was just right to absorb everything and look around and not too strenuous if you are slow walker. We had an excellent lunch in Cavtat . I would recommend this tour and Nikolina 100%
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Trudy, thank you so much for your kind words. I'm glad you had a good time on the tour. I wish all the best to you and your sister for the big day...have fun :)
Patricia KerleyUnited States
I sent may emails back and forth with Nikolina trying to set up the perfect customized tour for myself, husband, brother and wife. She was always very responsive and professional. It was so much fun to spend a good part of the day with Nikolina, walking the walls of the old city of Dubrovnik and taking the tour of the old olive press. Nikolina's command of English, her friendliness and enthusiasm made for a very informative, fun and exciting day!!! The family at the old olive press was terrific too!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Patricia, we had a very fun day indeed :) I'm glad you have enjoyed the tour and that you'll have nice memories from Dubrovnik. Thank you for the review and I wish all the best to you and to the rest of your family
Iva B.United States
Nikolina did an amazing job showing us Dubrovnik (we were a group of 10). She is very knowledgable, professional and just a pleasure to be around. She was easily able to modify the 3 hour walking tour to include a 30min coffee break, as it was a hot day in Dubrovnik that day. We were impressed by her ability to lead tours in numerous languages, and despite little cuts in the program initiated by me, the tour felt complete, just the right length and just the right amount of information. Highly recommend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ivelina, thank you very much for such a nice review. I'm glad that you and your clients have enjoyed the tour. I hope that we'll have an opportunity to meet again in the future. Kind regards, Nikolina

Nikolina shared a wonderful day in her city, Dubrovnik, with Nancy and me. The old city is a wonderful experience, from the back streets, historical tales, great views from the top of the impressive walls surrounding the ancient town of old Dubrovnik. Nikolina was a perpetual encyclopedia on Croatia, both historical and today. Nancy and I highly recommend Nikolina and her tour.

Michael BriceUnited States
I cannot sum into words just how special, informative and enjoyable this tour was with Tours by Locals. From the initial inquiry to the booking and arrival was professional. Upon meeting our guide Nikolina, she made our group and myself feel so welcome, we could have not wished for better experience. From the warm welcome port side to the air-conditioned comfort of the new Mercedes van. Nikolina graciously introduced herself to the six of us. From that moment on she brilliantly organized the best tour I

Jorge Gonzalez de CossioMexico
We really enjoyed our tour with Nikolina,because besides telling us where some scenes of Game of Thrones took place, she also told us about the history of each place we visited in Dubrovnik with her, it was like being in a class of History, we learned some very interesting things about this beautiful city and Nikolina was very nice with us, answering all our questions and she was very patient too, if we go back to Dubrovnik someday, I am sure we will call her for another tour.
Nikolina is a fabulous tour guide. She is knowledgeable, speaks English as if it was her mother tongue and you can tell that she is very fond and proud of her beautiful city!! I am so glad I found Tours by Locals on Google. If your guides in other cities are as half as good as Nikolina we will sign up again for sure!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jo, thank you so much for your kind words. I'm also glad that you have found Tours by Locals and that we had the opportunity to meet and to spend some time together. I wish you all the best!

We had a wonderful day with Nickolina. She provided lots of historical as well as Personal impressions and perspective. We had an exceptionally hot day and two active but older members in our group. Nickolina paced the tour well to accomodate them and made sure we had water and kept to the shade as much as possible. The Instructions on getting to the meeting place were excellent and we met up with Nikolina with no problem even though the meeting place was busy. We loved our day in Dubrovnik!

Nicolina was fantastic...not only did she deliver the exact tour purchased, she was professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and a pleasure to meet. She provided a wonderful history of not only Dubrovnik, but also background on the entire history of the region which was imperative in understanding and enjoying the tour.

Nikolina provided my family with a memorable tour of the beautiful walled city of Dubrovnik taking us into small alley ways that we had not experienced during our last trip.

Mark RoffmanUnited States
Nikolina was an excellent tour guide for our visit to Dubrovnik. She met my husband and me at the airport and we started touring as soon as our luggage was put in her car. We first went to Cavtat and Nikolina gave us a history of this village as well as a bit of history of Croatia. Then we went to Dubrovnik. Nikolina is so engaging, and so knowledgeable. She never rushed us. We were very fortunate to have her as a guide and would higly recommend her. Ina R

David SieberUnited States
Simply put, Nikolina is a very good guide and a very good ambassador for Dubrovnik and Croatia. Her olive oil tasting tour was a highlight of our trip. She knows her city well and shares her knowledge with enthusiasm. The olive oil press demonstration was a lot of fun and the owner's hospitality was a special experience that wouldn't have happened without Nikolina's tour. She certainly made these tourists fell like travelers.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You so much! You should taste the oil that we made few days ago :) I wish you all the best, Nikolina

Cheryl KaufmanUnited States
There was nothing about this tour that wasn't 5 stars. We drove into the countryside to Konavle, stopping along the way for beautiful views of Dubrovnik. We visited an old water mill and sampled local brandy and dried fruits. The resort town of Cavtat was a beautiful. After a short walk along the harbor, we had a cool drink. We had an hour tour of the Old Town & 2 hours of free time before we went back to the ship. Nikolina was fantastic. She shared a lot of information and history with us. Perfect!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cheryl, I'm glad that you have enjoyed the tour. I wish all the best to you, your mother and the rest of the "team" :) Nikolina

Tamera BarnesUnited States
Nikolina was wonderful and the old city of Dubrovnik was so beautiful. Nikolina arranged a 2 hour walking tour within the city walls for us. She met us promptly when our bus from our cruise ship arrived at Pile Gate. She was very knowledgeable, spoke fluent English, and made our brief visit to Dubrovnik very special. She recommended we do the walk on the city walls on our own since we did not have any more time with her and that was wonderful as well. Dubrovnik was one of the highlights of our vacation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tamera, thank you for everything. I am glad you did the walls! I wish all the best to you and your family!
Thank you Nikolina for making our day in Dubrovnik both informative and entertaining. You brought the history of Croatia and especially Dubrovnik alive for us all. It was a day we will not forget. I hope other visitors to your fascinating city have the good fortune of having you as their guide. 15 very happy Canadian hikers.
