Jelena - a fantastic way to start our Croatia touring!
Samir_S, Jul 2022
Jelena was a fantastic tour guide and the best way to start our Croatia trip. She showed us around the Palace and surrounding streets, shared the history of Croatia, and gave us lots of tips for our future destinations. I was traveling with kids 13 and 11 years old, and Jelena was incredibly engaging to them as well. She was a teacher in a previous life, and that nurturing/educational way about her comes through. We really enjoyed our trip with her and would recommend her w/o reservation!
An awesome walking tour of Split!
Sonia_C, Jul 2022
Correspondence with my guide prior to tour was excellent, unfortunately, on the day of the tour my planned tour guide, Jelena was unwell, but organised another tour guid. Her name was Ina and she was fantastic. She was very knowledgable and passionate about Split and very considerate to my daughters and I in the heatwave. We enjoyed the tour and learnt a lot Split from her.
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Thank you Sonia for the lovely review. I wish I could have been with you on the day. I am glad you enjoyed the tour with Ina and that you loved Split. Best, Jelena
Don’t miss this one!
PHILIP_G, May 2022
I had such an enjoyable morning with Jelena, touring the maze of streets of Old Split. Jelena’s tour is the sort that leaves you with a satisfaction that you’ve got a proper feel for a place rather than just ticking it off your list. Jelena was great company.
Response from Host, May 2022
Thank you so much for the wonderful review. I really appreciate it. Have a lovely cycling experience on the islands. Jelena
Awesome tour!
Allison_E, Nov 2021
This was my first time in Split and I was so excited to see the Diocletian Palace. This tour did not disappoint! From the moment I booked, Jelena was extremely communicative. I received a text from her right away confirming the tour date and the meeting location and time. She reconfirmed a couple of days prior the tour and she met us promptly at the agreed location. Jelena was very informative and fun. She showed us all of the top spots in the Palace and took us around the beautiful streets of Split. She made sure to point out the best locations for photos and she balanced her narrative with a good bit of history and modern information. At the end of the tour she recommended some great lunch spots and a cool hike. As a cruise ship passenger, this tour was the perfect amount of time. We were able to complete the tour, hike to the top of the Marjan hill and have a leisurely lunch before returning to the ship. I highly recommend booking with Jelena!
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Thank you so much for the review, dear Allison. You were a lovely group and it was a joy to show you the city of Split with its iconic Diocletian's Palace. I am so glad you managed to make most of your day in Split. Best wishes, Jelena
Tons of fun
Thomas_F, Oct 2021
Jelena was fantastic as soon as we booked. She was in constant contact with us and was extremely flexible to fit our schedule. Not only was she extremely knowledgeable about the extensive history of the area, she told us where the best cafes, restaurants, and chocolate places were to go. Additionally she helped us avoid tourist traps and even directed to the place with the best exchange rates. She is very personable and fun to hang out with. We had a great time. I suggest doing this tour early in the trip to get thoroughly aquatinted with city.
Response from Host, Oct 2021
Dear Thomas, such a pleasure to have met you all! I loved showing you the city and it makes me so happy you enjoyed our time together. I really appreciate the review. Thank you. Wishing you all the best! Jelena
Hugely enjoyable morning
Gill_B, Sep 2021
Jelena is a natural storyteller and made the Diocletian palace come to life. But her intellect and curiosity meant she was able to update us on politics and the economy too. Given this was our first trip to Croatia, we really appreciated the breadth of her conversation.

Response from Host, Aug 2021
Thank you so much for your review. It was a pleasure to have the two of you on my tour. Best wishes, Jelena
Vinka was excellent. I would have liked to spend a little more time getting to know the city outside of Diocletian’s Pal
Michael_L, Aug 2021
Hearing Vinka’s perspective on the transformation of Split over the last thirty years and the urban history of the neighborhood that evolved within the walls of Diocletian’s Palace.
Response from Host, Aug 2021
Thank you for the review, dear Michael. We really appreciate the feedback. Wishing you all the best,

Great tour of Split
Valerie_R, Jul 2021
Jelena did a great job of leading us on a tour of Split. She obviously knew her history, was a good communicator, & made the tour interesting and enjoyable. I highly recommend her.
Amusing, informative, helpful intro to Split
Evan_J, Jul 2021
What a relaxed and informative insider tour of the area near the Old City. Jelena is not only a great guide but a new friend in Split! So classy!

A great tour in Split!
JoAnn R, Oct 2019
The private tour made it easier to maneuver through the large crowds and get an appreciation for Split. Jelena is friendly and knowledgeable and does a great job of explaining the history and pointing out things you would have not noticed on your own or in a large group. She also gave great advice on restaurants and other things to do while in Split. Highly recommend.
