We took this tour on our first day in split, we really appreciated the history telling behind the monuments. We saw them before our tour when we searching for our meeting point, and it gave another meaning t OK ne then after the tour. Natasa was the BEST!! So charismatic and knowledgeable. Personally, I’m not a fan of history, but she made so captivating, I would do the tour a second time. Would absolutely recommend.

The tour was thoroughly enjoyable with Natasa as our guide . She made it quite interesting with the history of Diocletian’s Palace . A good introduction to the history of Split and how over centuries the palace remained inhabited and the old town grew to what it is now .
