One of the best city tours ever. Jakov was great, he is a history and English professor so he knew how to make it interesting. Even though I can not walk much he found a way to see as much as possible with the smallest possible amount of walking.

Excellent tour. 4 of us were in port for the day on a cruise ship and wanted to learn all we can about the history of Split. Friendly helpful experienced local guide. Highly recommended.

A nice and quiet tour through the streets of the old Split, the guide was very good and gave the explanations very clearly.

Had trouble finding the 'Golden Gate'. Northern Gate apparently is the name the locals know it as.

Jakov was fantastic. Really great tour. I'd definitely recommend to anyone visiting.
