This was a great tour! It gave a really good overview of the city and our guide gave a lot of recommendations throughout (like places to eat and best places for pictures but also the ATMs with the best rates and the most efficient way to get to the airport). He was clearly super knowledgeable about the city currently and historically. I would recommend this tour to give you background on the city and help you plan which sites you want to visit during the rest of your trip.

Excellent tour from a charismatic and knowledgeable guide. Ivan told us lots of information about Croatian history as well as the history of the palace. The tour was well paced and didn’t feel dry or drawn out. I would highly recommend this to anyone who has never been to Croatia before or just simply wants to know more about Split’s rich history.

Very worthwhile overview of the historical background of the Diocletian Palace, setting the ground for further exploration on our own. Guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and organized. Group was not too big (it was divided when they realized number of attendants was a bit high) and we could listen to her talk easily.
