The best tour guide in Croatia!
karolinew770, 07-11-2022
If you want to see the best Split has to offer I highly recommend Jelena as your travel designer and tour guide. She is knowledgeable, responsive, highly organised and knows all the great places in this unesco world heritage rich city including hidden gems like the best coffee house in Diocletian’s Palace. Jelena made our stay in Split memorable and we had a great time enjoying all that the Dalmatian region has to offer from the island hopping to world heritage national parks. We spent a week in Split and Jelena made our holiday fuss free from the moment we arrived to the transfer to Dubrovnik. Jelena arranged everything from airport
transfers to private tours of Trogir, Krka, Plitvice Lakes and Hvar in September 2022. I highly recommend this awesome woman to anyone who is looking for a great experience touring Split and the surrounding areas.
Could not have been better!

Jelena took her time, was very informative, answered all of our questions, even took a soda break with us when we asked! She was like having a new best friend for 4 hours in Split and then another hour and a half dedicated to Trogir. There is nothing that we can suggest that would have made our tour better - thanks, Jelena!
Great tour of Diocletian’s Palace and old town Split
Kitty448, 23-07-2021
On July 1 we had a fantastic tour with Jelena. She was so informative about the history of Split and the palace. She explained all the different rooms of the palace and what they were like during the Roman period and then showed how the old town grew and changed over the next centuries. Jelena was so personable and readily answered all our questions. I would strongly recommend her for a tour guide!
Exceptional tour guide!

Jelena is exceptional! She is a plethora of knowledge; she is a great historical educator, gives great insight into local living, gives great tourist tips to save time and money, and ultimately becomes a friend to anyone she works with! She is the main reason we loved Croatia so dang much!

Wonderful experience with Jelena! Very personable and knowlegable. We did a very well rounded tour of Diocletian's Palace and visited the charming location of Trogir afterwards for a quick tour and lunch. We all enjoyed our time and learned so much. Thank you Jelena!
