Marko was the most exceptional guide we have ever had on our countless tours of dozens of European cities...he is simply the "best of the best". And the tour was phenomenal ... well organized, informative and a great introduction to Dubrovnik. It exceeded our very high expectations especially for the valued added low cost aspects.

The tour was very informative a real history lesson. It was exactly what I was looking for. The length was also really good and it never felt rushed. My tour guide Branko was articulate and very knowledgeable. He handled all the questions that came his way with humour and clarity.

A great experience! Braco was so knowledgeable, made the tour incredibly interesting, and was willing to go above and beyond to answer more questions and go a little overtime. It’s a great way to get a feel of the city and to get an introduction to its history, I highly recommend it.
