Boris is very knowledgeable and passionate about this job. He also prepared the materials to help you visualize things better as it's very crowded and it's not easy to see everything. He interacted well with us so we don't feel bored. The group was small (only 8 people). We stopped by Split just for a few hours from our cruise so it was a perfect way to know the city. We are very happy and highly recommend taking his tour!

The park is amazing and our guide Stephan was amazing! He was very informative and went the extra mile to give us good travel tips - highly recommend this tour !
