Had a lovely historical and cultural tour of the city tour. I must thank Jakov for keeping the appointment even though I was the only one for the tour. His knowledge on the history and culture of Split was invaluable to the experience and made it rich. I was able to discover a lot through this tour.

Karlo was a fun guide and we had a great time. He took us through the city a bit and then around, up, and through the gorgeous Marjan Forest Park. We learned a lot about Split along the way. The bikes were just incredible--easy to learn to ride and really quality e-bikes. Highly recommended!

An amazing way of discovering the story of parts of the city that you usually don't see on many walking tours. Our guide Mario was amazing, he gave us many interesting facts not only about the history but the life of the locals as well.

A wonderful way of discovering the city. Our guide Jakov was great at explaining the story of the city and was very funny. Highly recommend the tour!

Great tour. Jakov was funny and full of knowledge at the same time. We saw some cool things. Poljud stadium was really great.
