Vesna is a wonderful guide. She is filled with knowledge and deep understanding of her city. Her authenticity is obvious from the get go as is the inspiration she feels for and from Dubrovnik. She presents a thorough and nuanced history of Jewish Dubrovnik through the ages. We highly recommend Vesna for an intelligent, nuanced and engaging tour which will make your trip to Dubrovnik all the richer.

Vesna was the most amazing guide I've met. She's so insightful about every corner in Dubrovnik, what is seen and what is unseen. Her witty sense of humour delights us as we appreciate more about life in medieval times, communist Yugoslavian years, homeland war, and the tourism boom era. She's so graceful with my kids that they enjoyed her company and surprises too. We also engaged Vesna in a private tour to the Konavle region. It was the middle of winter but the picturesque town of Cavtat looked and felt like autumn. During the family farm tour, we've tasted the best veal stew roasted at the open hearth under a special iron lid. You won't want to miss all of these (•‿•)

Dear Julie, Thank you for the opportunity to take you on my tours. I enjoyed every minute spent with you and your family. Definitely, it was better to walk in the countryside without rain. It helped me to present my birthplace and the Konavle region in a much better way. I cherish the photo with your children. I am amazed by how well-behaved they are, as well as how interested they were. Best regards!
