Mijo gave is not only a tour of Split in perfect english, but also gave us a information on Game of Thrones scenes filmed in Split and Croatia. He was even an extra in GOT which made it very special (make him show you his video from Season 4 with Khaleesi). His knowledge of Croatian history is great, and he makes it interesting and relevant and entertaining. Go with Mijo, he is a Split native who will take you on the inside track to his amazing city.

This was the best tour we had so far. Our guide Jakov was exceptional. In 3 hours we get to see and hear what we would need days on our own, but since we are from cruise ship, we didn't have that option. His knowledge was impressive. We spent 90min driving around locations which are not accesible by foot and 90min inside the Diocletian's Palace which is perfect amount of time for everything. I recommend it to everyone.

Ivan was a great guide. He met us at the cruise ship with our name on the sign which was nice from him. We had a 3h long tour and we saw the whole city. We saw places we could never see without him and we listened to some amazing stories about the history of the city and the Diocletian's Palace. Viewpoint on Marjan hill and Diocletian's Palace were my favorites.

Mijo made the tour fly so fast in an interesting and relaxed manner, such a captivating story about city Split and local culture. Perfect balance of storytelling and visual details. Would highly recommend ! PS. Mijo thanks for great tour and will be back to try your vegan food tour as well !

The tour was perfect, we enjoyed it very much, would definitely recommend!
