Fabulous Experience

I recently had the pleasure of experiencing a guided tour of Dubrovnik's Old Town, and it was nothing short of extraordinary. Ana super friendly demeanor immediately put us at ease, made this tour an unforgettable experience. From the moment we met her, it was evident that she possessed a depth of knowledge about Dubrovnik's history and culture that was truly remarkable. Her passion for the city shone through as she expertly guided us through the enchanting Old Town. Every corner turned revealed another layer of history and significance that she shared with enthusiasm and precision. The highlight of the tour had to be the breathtaking view from the cable car. As we ascended, our guide provided insights into the city's geography and the stories behind its iconic landmarks. When we reached the top, the panoramic view of Dubrovnik and the Adriatic Sea left us in awe. It was a moment of pure magic, and our guide's commentary made it even more special. Walking the ancient city walls was another highlight. Our guide's storytelling transported us back in time as we traced the footsteps of centuries of history. Her ability to weave together historical facts and captivating anecdotes kept us engaged and eager to learn more. As if the tour itself wasn't incredible enough, our guide surprised us with a lovely gift at the end. It was a thoughtful gesture that made us feel appreciated as visitors to this beautiful city. In the blink of an eye, four hours had flown by. The tour was not only informative but also incredibly enjoyable, thanks to our guide's charisma and expertise. I can't express enough gratitude for the memorable experience she provided. If you're visiting Dubrovnik and want to explore its Old Town, I wholeheartedly recommend this tour. It's an adventure filled with history, stunning views, and the warmth of a superb guide.

Charming and informative

As my wife has limited mobility we would not have been able to keep up with most tour groups and so we booked Ana for a personal guided tour of Dubrovnik. Ana met us on time without difficulty. In practice we didn't spend a lot of time walking - our choice - but we did spend a lot of time talking about life in modern Croatia and its recent interesting and turbulent history. We really enjoyed this and when we walked with Ana it was at a pace with we could manage.
