Jadran (Adrian) was an amazing tour guide! We had a grand time with him and our group. He has in-depth knowledge about the culture and the history of the place plus he presents information in an engaging way. He’s also funny. We learned a lot and enjoyed our tour. Thank you very much! Superb and highly recommended.

Ivana was a great guide. She’s very knowledgeable about the city’s history and is a big fan of Game of Thrones. She has great energy as well. Love both the GOT focus and history focus. I learned a lot. We did finish the tour 30 minutes earlier, probably because we were the only ones in the tour so it moved faster.
