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.

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! - Kristin & Matt

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 went on the Jewish Heritage tour with Vesna Barisic. She is very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. We appreciate the amount of time she took with us so that we could understand the history.
