Hello! My name is Lea, Split is my hometown and I'm a licensed tour guide for Split-Dalmatia, Dubrovnik-Neretva and Šibenik-Knin county, both in English and Spanish language. I was born in Split, I have been living here for more than 20 years and I'm passionate about sharing its beauty and culture!
I got my Master's degree in Marketing, at Faculty of Economics here in Split. Following my university studies, I moved to Barcelona to do an internship before returning back to Split. I have always enjoyed learning languages, travelling and experiencing different cultures. Soon after graduation I have realised that office job doesn't suit me and I started to work as a tour guide, which was the best decision I have ever made!
When I'm not tour guiding, I love to learn languages - I can speak English, Spanish, Portuguese and French. Yoga is also one of my passions, I am a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT 200) by International Yoga Alliance.
Local gastronomy has always interested me, so I decided to do a course for a wine consultant to get to know more about the rich wine history in Croatia.
In my free time, I love long walks with my dog and reading books.
I absolutely love my job and cannot wait to share with you all the beauties that the city of Split and the region of Dalmatia have to offer! If you were looking for a private guide to experience the region like a true local - you are right where you should be!
No special conditions. You can contact me in order to customize tours according to your wishes.
Thanks Lea for the wonderful tour in Split. You’re an enthusiastic guide. We’ve learned a lot from you. You gave us a lot of interesting information about the city.
Dear Pieter, Thank you for the beautiful review!! It was such a pleasure to meet you and your family! Hope you enjoyed the rest of your holiday! Best regards, Lea
Lea showed us the old city, but is not a cyclist, so she connected us with an amazing colleague who is a cyclist. The whole day was outstanding. Both Lea and Mijo are wonderful local guides , very knowledgeable, great hospitality, and friendly. We are recommending Lea to our friends without hesitation.
Dear Robert, Thank you for the wonderful review! It makes me very happy to know that you enjoyed your vacation in Croatia and that you made some great memories! It's been a pleasure to meet you and show you around! Kind regards, Lea
We highly recommend Lea! She makes you feel very welcome and is highly knowledgeable. She went out of her way to make sure many aspects of our stay in Split met our expectations. In addition to showing us around the ancient city sites, we asked her to recommend a cycling guide in Split and one in Hvar. We are expert cyclists, and both guides she referred us to were absolutely top notch! She also directed us to great restaurants. Thank you Lea for making our stay in Croatia exceed expectations!
Dear Robert, thank you so much for this amazing review! It makes me very happy to know that you had great time in Croatia! I am really glad that I had the opportunity to meet you and your wife and I hope that the next time we will have more time to spend together. I am wishing you all the best! Kind regards, Lea
