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.

The weather was nice and the park wasn't crowded. The power plant is something definitely worth seeing. Thank you to our guide Ivan for taking us to Trogir, the food was amazing. Also the drive was very comfortable.

The tour was amazing. We especially liked the view from Marjan, it was beautiful. Guide Jacob was very funny and his English was great, thank you for showing us around!

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

Renato was an excellent guide, knowledgeable and interesting.
