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.

Me and my girlfriend has a great trip, organised by Jakov and accompanied by Oliver. We were staying a little outside of Split (in Trogir) but that was no trouble to get picked up from there. Oliver was warm and friendly, and had fantastic insights for the journey - there wasn't a boring moment! We got to Mostar, which is a fascinating city, stopping at a great little bakery along the way. We felt completely safe and comfortable the whole way. On the way to Dubrovnik, some of the scenery and views were unbelievable. We stopped at a little wine shop overlooking the Adriatic sea, which was just bliss. Then finally, we stopped to taste some fresh Oysters straight out of the water. I couldn't recommend this trip enough and the whole experience, including Olivers' company was brilliant. Thank you guys!

Our group of 7 friends had a wonderful 13 nights trip, started in Lake Bled and ended in Dubrovnik. The scenery is so beautiful that they look better than the posters. Jakov is always prompt in his reply to my emails, always accommodating to my every request. As he says : it’s your holiday, do whatever you want! He make it a point to meet us in Zagreb, join us for a vineyard lunch and arranged a wonderful lunch at his parents’ house, giving us a taste of the Croatian life. Marko, our guide, is 5 star all round. Very knowledgeable, very friendly, very accommodating and like a friend. He has very good palate too. The restaurants he recommended are all fantastic. Thanks Jakov and Marko, for the wonderful holiday! Super!

We (a group of 7) spent 12 days with Marko on a guided road trip across Slovenia and Croatia. It was wonderful. Every stop was beautiful, the food was fantastic and the people were friendly. Marko was a great guide. He was pleasant and accommodating. Whenever we asked for something, the answer was "no problem", "sure, sure" or "yeah, yeah, yeah". He could talk about anything under the sun. It felt like we were travelling with a friend we had known for years. I used to think guided tours were not much fun but this trip with Marko has completely changed my mind.
