Just had the pleasure of a private guided tour through Split with Jelena in July 2022 with our daughters (10yr & 6yr). She was absolutely incredible with the girls and kept their attention level and engagement up through the entire tour. Our girls loved her and the tour. We all learned a lot and had a great experience, especially because Jelena was adjusting speed, content and fun factors very naturally according to our needs!

Stop searching for other Croatian tour guides and simply work with Jalena. She organized a national park tour, boating trips and walking tour with lunch for our family. All activities proved to be incredible experiences provided by professional and knowledgeable staff.

She was incredibly communicative throughout the entire trip ensuring everything went off without issues and addressing last minute change requests. Jalena took all the stress out of planning a curated vacation experience allowing her clients to fully enjoy their holiday.

We had a wonderful morning with Pedro! He was very attentive as the burning sun slowly melted our energy levels, providing many details and background on Split’s (and Croatia) cultural and political history. A tour with humor and adapted to our group (family of 5, children aged 14-12-8). Would definitely highly recommend! (Pretty sure that without a guide, we probably would have fled the city as it was very busy and very very hot… but Pedro created our own bubble so we felt guarded from the crowds). Jelena was a wonderful communicator prior to the tour, quick on the responses on Whatsapp, which was highly appreciated!

We had two private trips organized by Jelena and they both were amazing! The first: a day trip to the beautiful town of Sibenik followed by a private tasting at the gorgeous Bibich winery. The day was perfect. The driver was great and the van a very nice Mercedes’ that was extremely comfortable. We had a fantastic day beginning to end.
The second day we had a private tour of Split downtown and the palace. This is not to be missed! The tour guide we had, Zeljan was so informative and interesting. He brought the city and palace history to life for us. It’s impossible to get this type of information on your own and we are really glad we spent time on this tour.
I cannot recommend Jelena enough. She picked the perfect tours for our days in Split and even helped us with other suggestions for the rest of our stay in a Croatia. She’s so professional and friendly. She really made our trip to Croatia a joy!

We enjoyed a fabulous tour of Diocletian’s Palace and the Old City of Split with Jelena. She is so knowledgeable and she shared many fascinating insights of the history of Split with us. We explored many hidden parts of the Palace we would never have found without her. Jelena speaks perfectly fluent English and she is so much fun to spend time with. We highly recommend her walking tour of Split.

My wife and I and another couple were very fortunate to have chosen Jelena as our private guide in Split in May. Jelena is enormously knowledgeable, interesting and provided us with a prefect tour. Stylishly dressed and with a calm professional and very engaging manor, she led our fascinating stroll starting in the incredible Diocletian Palace that wraps around much of Split Old Town. There are so many interesting things that you would completely miss (even if you're staring right at them!) without Jelena. The history comes alive with her narrative, in the squares and on the walls and especially below in the wonderfully cool vaults below. Her restaurant recommendations were spot-on; we enjoyed fabulous meals thanks to Jelena. We highly recommend a private tour with Jelena when in Split!

The trip Jelena planned for me was beyond my expectations! She listened to my interests and booked my tours, excursions, guides, drivers, accommodations, and restaurants! The drivers were friendly and professional and the guides so knowledgeable and agreeable to every request to stop and explore something a little longer or even deviate to see something I wanted to look at a little closer. The days Jelena was my guide were so personal and knowledgeable. She really went out of her way to get to know me and my interests and personalize my trip. The accommodations she booked were perfect for my requests of clean, quiet, and perfectly located. She picked great restaurants perfectly suited for the kind of dining experience I wanted. I can’t wait to book another trip with Jelena! I have traveled all over the world and the trip Jelena planned was one of the best I have taken! Sign up, you will not be disappointed!
