Marko was the most exceptional guide we have ever had on our countless tours of dozens of European cities...he is simply the "best of the best". And the tour was phenomenal ... well organized, informative and a great introduction to Dubrovnik. It exceeded our very high expectations especially for the valued added low cost aspects.

The guide made the (amazing) history of Dubrovnik very interesting and at times als entertaining. He is a good people's person, good at interacting with people and speaks a good English.

If you want a brief history of Dubrovnik and Croatia then this is the one for you. Informative but certainly not boring and very interesting and educational.

Great tour, filled with information about the history of Dubrovnik, when they were a republic, and when they joined Croatia.

Very good information, nice knowledgeable guide! Recommendation!
