The tour was short but fantastic. Dubrovnik a gem and what a beautiful city. The only concern is to much tourists might have a negative impact on the experience in future. Marijana a wonderful and friendly guide. The best guide we ever made use off. We will never forget her kindness. She did her best to relay the history to us in a limited time frame. Marijana is a engaging and bubbly guide with strong communication skills. We wish her the best for the future.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Johannes!! Thank you all for being such wonderful guests. Hopefully you'll visit us again and stay a bit longer. All the best to all of you, Marijana
The tour fit all my criteria : looking for Dubrovnik tour without climbing up the wall, not too much stairs, want tour with drive around town. This tour with Marijana fit them all. We are 2 middle age and 1 grandma. Got all the wrapped up history of Croatia finally ( on my 5th day in croatia ). First comfortable walk in old town, then take her car to Panoramic point. I was lucky, in Dubrovnik on no cruise ship day. Drive up hill was exciting and the view was just amazing. Thanks for unforgettable tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure Jun!! And thank you for teaching me about your culture too-that's why I love my job! All the best to you all and hopefully you'll visit us again. Kind regards, Marijana
Deborah HeizerUnited States
Marijana was absolutely wonderful. She was very proactive about getting in touch with us a couple of days before the tour. When our ship arrival time was delayed, she made sure we knew that everything was fine, and we would still get our full tour. She knew all about the history, culture, architecture, and anything else I asked about Dubrovnik. I will definitely book another tour with her if we come back here.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Deborah for taking the time to write a review! It means a lot to me to read this. You were wonderful guests and it would be my pleasure to be your guide again! Hugs from Dubrovnik! Sincerely, Marijana
Julie GrossUnited States
We loved our tour with Marijana S! A friend recommended her in particular, and she lived up to the great reviews! She drove us to Mt Srd and then we had a tour of Old Town. Great personality, very funny and engaging and very knowledgeable about Dubrovnik and Croatia's history. We felt like we really got to know her during our 3 to 4 hour tour. Marijana also gave us advice regarding our stay in Dubrovnik and recommended we go to Cavtat, which was a great idea. She also provided us with restaurant ideas.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Julie!! Thank you for taking the time to write this - it means a lot and for being such wonderful guests! It will be my pleasure to take you on a tour again on your next visit. Say hi to Jayne for me and thank Mary for the recommendation. All the best, Marijana

James SchwarzUnited States
We've arranged tours all around the world with Tours By Locals, but can honestly say that Marijana was the BEST guide we've every had. She is knowledgable, smart, funny, and is very proud of her country. Her commentary, not just on the tourist sites in Dubrovnik, but on Croatian culture, was interesting and fascinating. Anyone, traveling to Dubrovnik -- especially on a cruise ship where time is limited -- should ask for Marijana to be their guide. She was awesome!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear James, What can I say to this?! Big THANK YOU for choosing me to be your guide!! I loved the energy on our tour and that is not only my doing. I had a great day with the two of you and I hope you will come here again. Next time stay longer! You know where to find me. Hugs, Marijana

Darlene KernerUnited States
A wonderful historical tour. Marijana is knowledgeable and keeps the tour interesting. She was so accommodating with the seniors in our group. The traffic was backed up from where we were parked and looked like we would miss our ship. She found a taxi not caught up in the traffic and paid for it herself just to make sure we were on time. A great day and tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Darlene, I enjoyed taking you on tour and thank you for a wonderful day and for a great review. Best regards, Marijana

We are so thankful for her personal touch, attentiveness to each of us, sense of humor, honesty, generosity, and extensive knowledge of the history of the region. She mixed formal history with personal experiences which gave us unique insights into Croatian culture. Marijana brought Dubrovnik to life and made our first experience in Croatia wonderful and unforgettable. We highly recommend taking a tour with Marijana!

We were blessed when we chose Marijana to be our guide for Dubrovnik. She was funny, interesting and very knowlagable about the history, both past and recent, the politics and culture of her beloved Dubrovnik. We felt that we had gained some understanding of what it is to be a Croatian and had made a new friend. I can highly recommend Marijana as the guide for Dubrovnik.

Don SouterUnited Kingdom
Marijana was friendly knowledgeable and an excellent tour guide. Throughout the tour she showed true passion and commitment to ensuring her clients were informed in all aspects of Dubrovniks history. We booked Marijana for our last day of our holiday and I have to say it was the highlights of the seven day stay. I would highly recommend Marijana for a private tour of Dubrovnik and if we did return we would not hesitate to book her again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Don for your kind words. It was a pleasure to have you two with me! I had a great day with you, trully enjoyed our conversation and I hope we meet again some day. I wish you all the best, Marijana

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your kind words but it was not very hard to be like that with guests like you! Enjoy your stay in Dubrovnik and 'sitting parties' you may attend. Marijana
