Jakov is AMAZING! We told him the days we wanted to tour and he planned and executed a wonderful week full of history, historical sites, beautiful parks and natural beauty. It was a great mix of bigger cities and small towns that we may not have ever visited without him. A highlight was staying in his parents house in a small village and eating a most delish meal that his mother prepared. They are lovely people and I can see where Jakov gets his kindness, enthusiasm and general sweetness from. He made the week long trip from Venice to Dubrovnik a trip of a lifetime!

I am a repeat customer for Jakov at The Guide.

I have used private guides in cities all over the world and I can tell you Jakov is the best guide I have ever used. He is 100% professional, extremely knowledgeable about history and geography (which he shares in an engaging and interesting way) and he pampers his guests to make their time with him incredible.

Jakov goes above and beyond normal service to be helpful to his guests. When my family had a travel disruption due to covid testing, Jakov rescued us at the airport, helped us find a quick turnaround testing facility, toured us while we waited, then drove us four hours to help us stay on our original itinerary. Where can you find that kind of service anywhere? Only at The Guide! We're already planning our next visit to Croatia with The Guide.

Jakov's enthusiasm and knowledge of the history of the areas we visited is what makes time with him unique and special. He makes travel easy on his guests, taking them to the closest drop off points and giving clear instructions. He makes connections otherwise unavailable and he is very accommodating about special requests and works around his guests interests (wine, shopping, etc)

Our family (13 of us) had a wonderful and memorable time in Salzburg, Slovenia, Bosnia and Croatia with Jacov(The Guide).
Everything was well planned and Jacov was very knowledgeable, entertaining and fun to be with.
We enjoyed all the places we went to.
He came very highly recommended and we are so glad we had him as our guide throughout our 14 day tour. Thank you very much from all of us.

This tour agency specialise in customisation and came highly recommended from several of my well travelled friends. They lived up to their reputation throughout the trip of being reliable, flexible and caring. Ante our guide was well versed in the history of the area, a good and steady driver and very pleasant and personable. Would highly recommend them anytime.

Did a 10 day tour private tour across Croatia with Jakov. He comes highly recommended and lives up to his reputation. Very good knowledge of the region and very entertaining throughout the trip. Brought us to great foiod places (including a very familial lunch which was sooo yummy) and amazing picture spots. All hotels arrangements were great and his van spacious and comfortable. Very caring guide and good & safe driver. Itinerary planned was interesting and flexible. Definitely THE GUIDE to use if you are looking for one to visit the region.

It was really one of the best wine tours we took. Jakob took us to 2 local wineris that produce local brands that were different from the our wins. The hospitality was generous and perfect. We had a wonderful day with Jakob explaining us a lot about Croatia about the surrounding snd history.

I did a lot of research before selecting a Croatian guide, but you don't have to. Just hire Jakov ! Four elderly ladies could not have asked for a better experience. The tour was a perfect combination of nature, culture, beauty, great food & entertainment. Jakov is both knowledgeable & entertaining .

At the recent NY Times Travel show, I took a break from staffing the Discover Albany/Erie Canal booth to get material for our upcoming trip to Croatia. Fortunately for me they had information about The Guide private tours. I wrote to Jakov who crafted a proposal for our entire week, we tweaked it with certain existing parameters and he revised the proposal to meet our needs.

We ended up choosing 2 of the suggested tours - the first was getting us to split from Dubrovnik via Ston (For Oysters and wine tasting in the Peljesec peninsula) and driving through Bosnia and visiting the old town of Mostar. Our driver and guide, Oliver, a Split Native was warm, enthusiastic, full of great tidbits and very proud Croatian. We had a great day with him and he gave us great tips to get the most out of Split the following day.
