    Wonderful Walk with Vesna!
    Do yourself a favor and enjoy an informative Jewish Heritage tour with Vesna! She was waiting for us outside the Pile gate with our name on a sign. We did a very easy loop, ending at the Jewish synagogue which also has a small museum. We’re so glad we did the tour with Vesna. 😊

    Jewish Heritage Tour Highlight of Dubrovnik
    Vesna was wonderful and so informative about the Jewish history in Dubrovnik. She detailed every aspect of the Jewish contribution to Dubrovnik. Her empathy and descriptions made us feel that she was a member of our mispacha. She was one of the highlights of our visit to Dubrovnik.

    Highly Recommend if Considering this Tour!!
    I could not recommend his tour more, I would give 10 stars if possible!!! Vesna warmly welcomed us with some basic history of the city and gave such a beautiful and informative tour on the Jewish heritage in Croatia. She answered all of our questions and was very personable. A true local, she knew everything and you can’t get a tour more authentic than hers. Thank you so much Vesna!!!

    Outstanding Walking Tour of Dubrovnik
    Our walking tour with Vesna was outstanding. We took the Jewish Heritage Tour and it was a complete tour of Dubrovnik as well as sights and history of Jewish interest. Vesna provided a tremendous amount of information in a very well-organized and fun walking tour. Honestly, her tour was the highlight of our trip to Dubrovnik. Don't miss it.

    Fantastic tour of Dubrovnik.
    We took a 4 hour tour of Dubrovnik with Vesna, walking the walls together (which was very worthwhile- I was initially going to do them on our own but I’m so glad we had the guide), and of the city and it’s Jewish history, including a stop at the Synagogue and it’s museum, one of the oldest communities in Europe. It was a fascinating day seeing a place that has long been on my bucket list. Fantastic.

    Terrific private tour with Vesna!
    If you’re looking for a comprehensive tour of the old city of Dubruvnik, with perspective on living within the city walls both centuries ago and modern life today, I highly recommend scheduling a tour with Vesna. As a resident of the old city she has great insight into modern challenges, history of the city and the current Jewish population of today and yesteryear. We found our private tour with Vesna both enjoyable and very informative.

    Thanks a lot Vesna
    Vesna has studied the Dubrovnic jewish comunity for many years and she is very knowledgeable on this matter. Also she transmits in an easy way the long and beautiful story of the people of Dubrovnik. It was really a pleasure to enjoy the hours we spent with her. We learned a lot. Sandra and Samy

    Vesna is the best!
    I can't say enough great things about Vesna! We went on the Jewish Heritage tour, and I learned so much. She is so knowledgeable about Dubrovnik and then to layer in the Jewish history- it was excellent. I particularly like when she showed us the Hebrew writing on the wall above the synagogue. In a million years we would have never seen that on our own! If I ever get the chance to go back to Dubrovnik I plan to walk more with Vesna!

    Amazing Tour of Dubrovnik!!
    We did a 2-hour tour of Old Town with Vesna as the first part of our trip to Dubrovnik. This was the perfect way to be introduced to the city and learn about the rich history. Vesna was very personable and knowledgable, we had a great experience! She also provided us with wonderful recommendations for the rest of our trip! Highly recommend booking a tour with Vesna while in Dubrovnik!

    Excellent walking tour!
    Our tour today with Vesna was excellent. We received a full history of the Jewish community in Dubrovnik, as well as an overview of the city’s history. The story of Jews in Dubrovnik was very touching, and it meant a lot how non-Jewish Dubrovnik community members supported the Jews and helped protect our artifacts throughout rocky times. Thank you, Vesna for carrying on our traditions!

    Fantastic Learning Experience
    Vesna was a fabulous tour guide. She is extremely knowledgeable about both the history of the old city and the history of Jews in the city. We learned so much from her! She was also very friendly and personable. We highly recommend touring with Vesna. You won’t regret it!

    Outstanding tour
    We are so fortunate to have found Vesna. My wife and I like to learn about the Jewish community wherever we travel, but the agency we used do not offer such a tour in Dubrovnik. After doing some research, I booked the Jewish Heritage Tour with Vesna. She was pleasant and so full of knowledge about the history of the city, and of course the Jewish community there, which she shared with us nonstop as we walked through the old city of Dubrovnik. Earlier that day we took another Dubrovnik tour which emphasized the Game of Thrones sites and Dubrovnik history in general, and so we were worried that there might be overlap. There was almost none. Her knowledge of the city was so amazing, it was as if we were seeing the place through new eyes a few hours later. I highly recommend taking a tour with Vesna.

    "The Scent of a Woman" Tour is Outstanding!
    We visited Dubrovnik recently and we took the "Scent of a Woman" tour with Vesna. This walk was the best and most informative out of the several that we took throughout the country! The subject matter pertains to the history, or lack of recored history, of women in this city during the early centuries of its development and historical relevance. Vesna is so completely knowledgable about so many things that most people would miss on a normal city tour. It was not only about the buildings and town center, but also about the people, mainly women, and how they played a part in its vast history. Our tour was small (only three visitors) and I would recommend that. Vesna was easy to ask questions, her pacing was great, and we covered a lot of history in a short period of time, but it was not overwhelming. This tour is worth every penny. If you are looking for something that is a little more "off the beaten path" then this is the tour and tour guide for you. Vesna also gave us amazing recommendations about restaurants and activities to do during our stay. I would not miss the chance to be led around the city by her! 5+ STARS!

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Vesna. I am a travelguide myself so I can identify outstanding guiding experience when experiencing one. Vesna has great knowledge of Dubrovnik and spices interesting stories with her great sense of humour. Whenever returning to Dubrovnik I would book Vesna for more tours without hesitation. Thank you for making our tour so memorable, Vesna! Looking forward to seeing you again next time :-)

What a wonderful way to start our day! We recently did a “Dark side of Medieval Dubrovnik” tour with Vesna and had such a great time! Vesna was so knowledgeable about the subject area and answered all of our questions throughout the tour. She lives in the Old Town herself and knows so much about the city’s history. We walked and stopped at many historical sites where she told us about significant events that happened there and went into great detail! This helped guide us on different places we wanted to continue exploring on our own throughout our time in the Old Town. The focus of our tour was on crime and punishment in Dubrovnik throughout history, but she also spoke about and answered any questions we had regarding the city today! Vesna was aware that we were on our honeymoon and even gave us a handmade gift, it was such a sweet, personal gesture that we really appreciated! We highly recommend doing any walking tour with Vesna, she is fantastic!!

Thank you Vesna!
