    It was a great experience. Olga was delightful company and very knowledgeable about the history and the culinary specialities. We started with a walk around the market, stopping for tastes of the delicious local produce, then a further snack. Then a delicious gourmet lunch with wine. Further topped off with a delicious ice cream. I am still eating the leftovers. I thoroughly enjoyed it and definitely recommend!

    Experience Split in a more fun and interesting way!

    First off, our host Olga was amazing! She was prompt, energetic, and always had an answer to our questions. We started off the day navigating a very busy market, enjoying some of the best bread and prosciutto I've ever had. She told us all about the unique differences in all the Croatian foods we had, the tasting notes to look for, and the process behind everything. Walking through town, we got all the history of the old city and how the town has changed throughout the centuries. We ended with a delicious lunch where she took us again through all the unique characteristics to look for. What a fantastic way to start our time in Split! When I go back, I'll know what to look for. Thanks Olga!
