Unfortunately our tour in Split was not as nice a I had hoped because it rained the entire day. No fault of our tour guide Ana she did a wonderful job considering the conditions. She tried to keep us as dry as possible and still tell us about the history of Split. Would really like to compliment her and also her driver Misha. Both very personable and knowledgeable about the Croatia.

Guide was very professional and informative. He spent time answering all the questions. Would use these folks again. They were a good alterative to the higher priced tours offered on our ship,
We really "lucked out"....when we went to meet our tour it was only us and the guide. I was surprised it wasn't cancelled. Having our guide all to ourselves was great and she was excellent.
Great Tour. Iris our guide was very pleasant and knowledgeable. We took this tour for the opportunity to not only see Diocletian's Palace but Trogir as well. We enjoyed the trip down to Trogir. We only had 45 minutes in Trogir to eat, go to the bathroom, look around and shop-just too short! We had no time to look around the medevil part of Split. I would rate this tour a 5 if it was a little longer. It was very hot in Europe when we were there and Iris gave us the opportunity to get dropped off at the ship or the town. Everyone chose the town. If heat weren't an issue getting dropped off in town would give you the opportunity to visit the old town, but it just wasn't an option for us. I would recommend this tour.
Not too bad, but the tour guide left without us even though we got there on time, so we had to phone someone to come and help us find the group...admittedly the place was extremely crowded, but she should have waited.
Oh MY! Tour group was too big. No headphones/microphones, which would have helped. Site was crowded and difficult to hear or keep up with the "run" through it. People started peeling off until we were down to maybe a dozen; which was almost manageable. Tour guide was not unfriendly, but a bit indifferent. Worst part was on the bus to and from the second site. At beginning of bus-ride we were asked if the temperature was comfortable. We asked that it be cooler; although the AC was apparently on, it didn't seem to be working properly. The guide then proceeded to speak to the bus driver which quickly devolved into a somewhat heated argument. Very unprofessional. The bus did not get cooler. We all suffered in silence until our arrival. While at the second site; minimal attempts were made by the tour guide to assist in locating a restroom before re-embarking. It all seemed to be too much trouble. Upon entering the bus for the return trip it became apparent why the AC had not been working properly as the bus driver had both his front windows open the entire time. When a request was made of the guide to have the driver close the windows, she declined to do so and indicated that it was useless to ask as he would not comply. Again a silent unbearably hot bus-trip back. Since we were assured of an air-conditioned bus, we were gravely disappointed. To summarize: It was awful from start to finish.
