As expected! Guide speaks great German. We had a dog with us. Wasn't a problem at all. The guide waited patiently when we gave him something to drink or similar. She was also able to answer all questions about Croatia wonderfully. For example why one goes through Bosnia-H. have to drive to get to Dubrovnik... Really worth it! Zadar is really a great city!
