It was an amazing tour. Our guide knew so much about the history of Diocletian's palace and Split. The lunch was an good example of Croatian cuisine. I would highly recommend it
Excellent tour particularly with our guide who was an archaeologist and actually did excavation on the site.
As a travel writer, I have written an indepth article on the tour. If Viator is interested in purchasing, it, get in touch with me.
Excellent, excellent, excellent! wholly due to our excellent guide, Maja Bilic. She is an archaeologist by profession and actually worked on the uncovering/restoration of the actual sites we visited! Maja provided vivid context to everything we saw and touched, bringing ancient artifacts to life with her professional explanations. It helps tremendously that her knowledge of history is impeccable, and could correlate the Diocleatian period with the overall history of Europe.
Highly recommended!! Maja really transported us back 2000 years during the tour!

Maja was a great tour guide---fluent in English, very informative, and patient with our questions. She is also very knowledgeable of the areas of Spilt where Game of Thrones scenes were filmed. Our tour started at 3 p.m. and the traditional lunch did not happen until around 4:30 but it was still very good. We went to Maslina and had the octopus salad and homemade bread.

If you love history you will love this tour! Mya our guide has a wealth of knowledge about the Diocletian's Palace and Split itself. We roamed around the palace and old town taking in the amazing history and soaking up the atmosphere. This was all topped off with lunch at a local cafe, The Olive, where we enjoyed some traditional food and a glass of wine. A great afternoon had by all!
I highly recommend this 3-hour tour. Maya has a wealth of information and the 'snack' at the end of the tour is a large plate full of so many Dalmatian specialties -- it was enough for our dinner! We toured around Diocletian's palace and decided to pay the extra bit to see the basement structure of the palace. We were fortunate enough to be the only 2 people who signed up for the tour, so we got a private one! My only suggestion would be for Maya to focus on a few key pieces of information because it was a lot to take in all at once over the course of 3 hours. But all in all it was great!
tour guide was very knowledgable with good background of the history of not just Split but also the Roman times that are related as well. it was one of the best city tours i ever had.
