We had a group of four that just visited Croatia. Julija picked us up from our hotel in Split and we made a few stops on our way to Dubrovnik. I am so happy my friend discovered Julija. She was a highlight of our 10 days in Croatia. We made stops for oysters in Mali Ston and visited Ston. We also went to a few other historical spots that day, along with a winery. The next day we had a farm to table experience and visited a mill and an amazing fortress. We had a walking tour of Dubrovnik with Julija on our third day. We had been to Croatia before but we experienced things and learned so much from Julija that we would not have done otherwise. Julija also drove us to the airport so we could get a flight to Zagreb, our last stop. I would highly encourage travel to Croatia. We felt safe at all times and we got to see everything without crowds. Julija is amazing and we gained a friend! Her knowledge is tremendous and the pride she has in Croatia is infectious!

My husband and I traveled to Croatia with my sister and brother in law in June and Julija absolutely made our trip! She was smart, SO knowledgeable, a very safe driver and had a great sense of humor. We were obviously in a great mood due to all of the fantastic food and wine! We went with her suggested itinerary (see below) and very happy that we did! 10:00 departure from Dubrovnik 11:00 approx. arrival to Ston, 1 hour time for exploring the little town 12:10 approx.meeting with a local fisherman in Mali Ston, boat ride, oysters part 13:00 approx. departure from Mali Ston 13:10 approx. arrival to the first winery 14:00 approx. departure from the first winery 14:45 approx. arrival to the second winery 16:15 approx. departure from the second winery (this is if you decide to have a snack there, it would last less if you are not interested in eating and it would last bit more if you decide to have a proper meal there) 16:20 approx. arrival to the third winery 17:00 approx. departure from the third winery 18:30 approx. arrival to Dubrovnik We have all talked about going back and hope she would be able to take us around again. It felt very much that we were touring the country with a friend and NOT a tour guide looking for our money. We started the day in Mali Ston with a local fisherman on a tiny little boat who took us out to try fresh oysters and mussels. The fisherman was an absolute character and really set the tone for such a fun day. The fresh shellfish was delicious! The wineries she took us to were fantastic. She even arranged a homemade lunch at one of the wineries and wow! The owner's mother had spent 2 days slow braising wild boar and hand-making gnocchi for us. It was absolute fantastic! At the end of our trip, we went back to Mali Ston and went to a local wine bar with Julija and were able to ask her even more about the history and culture of Croatia and really just to have some great company and conversation. I could not recommend this tour enough!

Julija is simply the best. Incredibly informed, flexible, and fun to spend time with. We toured with her for two days and could have easily added several more. A wonderful guide in every respect. Can’t recommend her highly enough!

We hired Julija for our holiday to Croatia back in May/June 2019. We were given Julija's contact details by a friend of my wife's father, who had previously booked Julija and had said how amazing she was. Julija is an incredible tour guide, an amazing person, welcoming, and very easy to talk to. Her knowledge of the English language is extensive, and we never had a problem communicating with her. We even asked Julija to teach us some basic Croatian, including the correct pronunciation of words, which we all had lots of fun with. My wife picked it up better than me though! We were lucky enough to spend two full days with Julija, firstly a personal tour around the Old Town in Dubrovnik and then Cavtat later that day, then a full day in Montenegro a few days later. On both days, Julija dropped us off at the most beautiful, scenic places, where we could get some lunch, a drink, and explore the local area, before she came back to pick us up to continue the tours. Julija always made sure we knew where she would be waiting for us, and at what time. These two days with Julija, were two of the best days of our 10 day holiday, and by the end of it, we wished we had booked more time with her. Julija's knowledge is incredible. Everything she told us about, including historical facts, were done in the most amazing and interesting way. I'm certain that without Julija's knowledge, there would have been so many things that we would've missed, or not seen. The vehicle Julija drove us in, was always clean and tidy, and refreshments were always provided. Julija is an excellent driver, and we always felt safe with her. We got the impression that Julija really does like to get to know her clients, and goes out of her way to make sure her clients needs are met in the most professional manner. We both felt so at ease with Julija, that we spoke to her about everything going in our lives, even private stuff, and we had many, amazing, personal conversations with her. We really got a sense that we could say anything to Julija, and we wouldn't be judged, nor would anything be mentioned to anyone else. Whilst we may have only spent two days with Julija, we both feel like we've made a friend for life, and even almost a year later, we're still in regular contact with Julija. I think that shows the kind of person she is, where even after your time with her has finished, she still cares and thinks about the experiences she shares with her clients. We were both genuinely sad when we said goodbye to Julija at the end of our final day with her, that's how much of a positive impression she made on us. For anyone visiting Croatia, who might be looking for day trips with a tour guide, look no further than Julija. We really don't think you'll find a better, more informative, friendly guide. We will definitely be hiring Julija's services when we return to Croatia in the future. Hvala najljepša Julija :)

My wife and I hired Julija for our trip to Croatia in September 2019. We had gotten her name from a friend who had been to Croatia previously. She was incredible in all regards. First, her skills with the English language are amazing both in speaking and writing. She answers all emails promptly and fully and works hard to assure she understands what you need of her and in suggesting things we might be interested in doing. She and a driver picked us up at the high speed ferry dock on our arrival from Split, got us to our apartment on the other side of the city, waited for us to get settled, then took us into Dubrovnik for a personal tour of the old city. She is absolutely delightful to interact with, and her knowledge of the city and her ability to intertwine history with the current situation was extremely well done and interesting. Julija fully looked out for all our needs. We then used her services as both a driver and guide for a day trip to Montenegro. She has a very nice full size automobile and is an excellent driver. I would highly recommend that trip if you have time. On the way, she told us about life in general in Croatia and her experiences in growing up there. This type of personal interaction is what we seek out on all of our trips as it makes it special, and she is the best guide in this regard that we have ever had. We recommend her without reservation. Thank you Julija for making our trip to Dubrovnik a wonderful experience!
