Thank you so much to our excellent guide Gabby. Born and raised in Split she was the perfect guide to explain the history of the Old Town and Diocletian’s Palace. Gabby is very well educated and speaks perfect English and she is very committed to educating people about the history of her home town. It was a delight to have Gabby as our guide.

Chose the evening City tour, which under Gaby's guidance, proved to be an excellent way to spend our time. Interesting and new information, hidden details, insights that only a good local guide can cast over such a highly touristic area, made me see Split with different eyes. Totally recommend this experience and Gaby as a guide, who is very knowledgeable and skilful.
Marin is one of your best guides. We enjoyed him very much. Wish we could do more tours with him and stayed longer. Excellent Krka tour. His knowledge about the history of Croatia was very interesting.
