“A great Croatian guide”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

Matej provided a wonderful trip for our 25th anniversary. We took a 10 day tour of the country with him and it was great. We planned the entire trip with him before arrival and he listened to our desires and came up with an itinerary that was great. He planned everything including the hotels/bed and breakfasts and almost all of the restaurants. He tailored it to what we wanted and planned an evening for our 25th anniversary that was beyond expectations. He is extremely personable. There were no problems at all and I highly recommend him as a private guide for a trip to Croatia.

“Beautiful country + great guide = ideal vacation”
Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

We found Mattej through recommendations on travel websites and he was just great! Communication prior to the trip was good, allowing us to find an itinerary and hotels that suited us. Do allow for ample travel time and consult with the guide prior to booking your tickets! We purchased return tickets for Split when in hindsight we should have arrived in Split and departed from Dubrovnik...would have saved a lot of travel time.

Croatia is one of the most beautiful, underrated countries I've seen in my life and I can't recommend it together with this group highly enough. You'll have to see it for yourselves.

“Wonderful Tours by Private Guides Team!”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

We used Private Guides Team for our tours in Malta and Split (Croatia) when we were on a cruise in June 2013. This Tour Operator was recommended by someone on CruiseCritic. The communication with Frank before our trip was clear, professional and effective. Every part of the tour was discussed in details. When in port we were met and greeted by Frank himself. The vehicle was absolutely new, clean, with working AC and with bottles of cold water for everyone. The guided tour included the visit of old town of Split and Trogir - a charming little town on a small island. And Frank was fantastic - tons of information, very knowledgeable, very well organized tour! Highly recommend Private Guides Team and Frank for tours in Croatia.

“Great Tour & Guide in Split”
Reviewed 12 November 2013

On Oct 21st we went on a tour through Private Guides Split. Our guide Igor was extremely knowledgeable on the history of Split. We saw many Roman Ruins and lots of the history and architecture of the Dalmatien Coast Diocletian's Palace was amazing and with Igor's timely comments gave us a real feel of this fantastic Palace. For a great excursion contact Private Guidesand ask for Igor!1
