Our group of 8 throughly enjoyed our walking tour of Dubrovnik with Tonka! She is very knowledgeable and her passion for sharing the history of Dubrovnik was apparent. Our 3 hour tour went by so fast. We wished we had more time in port as we could have spent an entire day with Tonka listening and learning about the history of the town and city walls. We would highly recommend Tonka to anyone considering taking a tour, you will not be disappointed!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Colleen, thank you so much for your lovely comment, I am so happy to hear that your group enjoyed time spent with me. It was truly my pleasure to meet you all and to show you Dubrovnik. Best regards and hope to see you all in Dubrovnik soon

Tonka was a fabulous tour guide. She was immensely knowledgeable, interesting in her presentation, friendly, passionate, easy going and fun. There wasn't anything she couldn't answer. What a bright and charming young woman. She was responsible for making Dubrovnik our favorite stop on this cruise!

Tonka was an amazing tour guide. She was very friendly and knowledgeable. Having lived her life here and also working on her doctorate in Archaeology, there are no better qualifications. She answered all our questions and it was obvious she loves her country. Thank you, Tonka, for a great day and for sharing your family's experiences during the Serbian attack on Dubrovnik. The "old city" is so unique and beautiful.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Robert, thank you for your lovely comment, I am glad to hear that you and your family enjoyed time spent with me. It was a pleasure to meet you all and to show you my hometown Dubrovnik. All the best

Tonka met us at the city gates close to our place. She was friendly, professionally knowledgeable, and provided an interesting tour that included Croatia history, Dubrovnik history, the recent war overview, and a lot of details that make the picture alive. She adapted the tour pace to our capabilities. Thank you, Tonka, and we wish you great success in your research project.

I arranged this tour for my son and his wife for their 10th anniversary. Tonka provided a fabulous tour for them to gain a wonderful perspective of the Jewish history as well as the major sites in Dubrovnik. She is charming, knowledgeable and a terrific representation for her country. Having been to Dubrovnik many years earlier (before the crowds), I personally was very impressed with how much they saw in such a short time.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Arlene, thank you so much for your lovely comment, I am so glad Jared and Heather enjoyed my tour. It was truly my pleasure to meet them and to show them my hometown Dubrovnik. All the best

We are very grateful to Tonka for preparing a tour that was just the right combination of Jewish heritage in Dubrovnik and the history and culture of the region in general. Game of Thrones has really impacted on tourism in the city and after Tonka's tour we understand why that's the case. She is a wealth of information and wonderfully flexible in creating a tour that took all of our diverse (we were a group of 6 from 12 to 71 years old) interests into account while inspiring new appreciation of the area

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Joe, Thank you so so much for your lovely comment, I am so happy to hear you enjoyed time spent with me. It was truly my pleasure to meet you all and to show you Dubrovnik. All the best

I would like to thank Tonka for the wonderful tour in Dubrovnik. She was professional, yet warm, thorough, and clearly knew her history. I had taken my tour with Tonka the day before joining a multi- day tour of Croatia starting in Dubrovnik and found myself sharing information with my fellow travelers that I had learned from Tonka! If I ever have the chance to return to Dubrovnik, I'd request a tour from Tonka again. Highly recommended!

Thanks to Tonka's extensive knowledge of Dubrovnik we found the tour very enjoyable and informative. A great tour for the first day of your stay; she gave us ideas of things to do during the remainder of the holiday. Best to go as early as possible as the walls get very crowded and it gets very hot up there in July.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Andrew, thank you for your lovely comment. It was my pleasure to meet you and to show you Dubrovnik. All the best.

Tonka knows her stuff. She was informative and enthusiastic. She is deeply committed to her country and her subject matter. Her pleasant manner and sense of humour, and her sensitivity to our need to pace ourselves, were most welcome. She is a true gem among guides, and we have had many over the years.

Tonka was fabulous. My husband and I wanted a bit of history and a bit of Game of Thrones. Tonka delivered! She was kind, thoughtful, informative, took great pictures of us, and spent the time answering questions, teaching us about the city she loves, and of course, walking us through the different locations of GOT filming. We definitely recommend touring with Tonka!

Our tour with Tonka was exceptional. Tonka is studying for her PHD in archiology. Her knowledge shows in her touring skills. We saw everything that was planned and more. The 3 hours were educational and fun. We will be recommending Tonka to our friends that will be in Dubrovnick next October.

Tonka is extremely knowledgeable about the history of the Old City!! She discussed the incredible rich history of how, when and where the wall was built. Tonka also highlighted what buildings, churches and people (St. Blaise) that were critical in the development of Dubrovnik as well as the 1991-1992 siege on the city when Croatia wanted its independence. I would highly recommend an Old City Dubrovnik tour with Tonka!

Tonka was early to meet us. She smiled and was passionate about her town. She not only covered the Jewish history as requested but the overall history of Dubrovnik. She has a passion for archeology (working on her PHD). She kept an appropriate pace. She was an excellent choice for our tour of Old Town. Oh if you are English speaking..very easy to understand.
