“Wonderful day with Ivo”
Reviewed 8 October 2012

My husband and I hired Ivo to pick us up from the cruise port and show us around Dubrovnik. His correspondance via email was timely and helpful. Basically, my husband isn't much for structured long tours, so Ivo was able to tailor it to our wishes. Ivo found us outside the ship and took us first up the mountain for a great view of Dubrovnik. Then he took us down into the Old Town and gave us an in depth tour and history of the region. By lunch, my husband was ready to go back to the ship, so Ivo took him while I did some souvenir shopping and had lunch in town. Ivo then picked me up from Old Town and took me to Cavtat, with a few stops along the way for pictures. After a nice walk around Cavtat, we had a gelato for the road and headed back to the ship. After one more stop on the other side of the new bridge (for a different view of the bay), he took me back to the ship. He was professional, courteous, and a safe driver. The price was extremely reasonable (less expensive than the ship excursions). His English was great. I would highly recommend using Ivo for a personal tour of the region. You will not be disappointed.

“Ivo is excellent!”
Reviewed 4 October 2012

We asked Ivo to give us a private tour of Dubrovnik, and an excellent tour we did get. Picked us up at the port, we were driven through the country, shown all the Best spots, and had a great informative description of the area.....both with ancient and modern history!
I would recommend anyone who would like a more private and intimate tour of Dubrovnik to get a hold of Ivo!

Ivo......don't forget the name sign next time....LOL

“Dubrovnik/ Panarama Point and Ston”
Reviewed 7 September 2012

We highly recommend you take a tour with this organization. We learned a great deal and had a lot of fun. Our guide was Ivo. We started at 8 30 am and finished at 1715. At the beginning Ivo checked what it was that we would like to do. We did a walking tour of Dubrovnik old town and its walkway on the walls and then, after a nice refreshment break, he drove us up to Panorama Point for the view in his car.
We had told him we would ike to see Ston - its walls and its salt production and so we drove out. In Ston after our walk we went for late lunch at a wonderful restaurant he knew of and enjoyed the mussels and a cuttlefish dish with risotto that the area/ restaurant speciallizes in.
More important all through the day Ivo shared his in depth knowledge of history, personal experiences growing up and living in Dubrovnik and reflections on contemporary Croatian life. He volunteered a lot of information and he answered our questions completely and clearly showing a great depth of knowledge. Our tour was in English and his English is excellent. He has a fine sense of humor and is very pleasant coumpany.
We found that this tour was everything that its advertising claimed it to be. We would do the day all over again - we had a great time.

“absolutely beautiful city, DUBROVNIK”
Reviewed 7 September 2012

I read reviews from trip advisor 2 weeks before our cruise and was lucky enough to find Ivo and secured his time to give us a tour of Dubrovnik! First of all, the old city WALLS is a must to see! We're so glad that we did the walk and climbing - the view and experience are just amazing. Ivo is extremely professional and knowledgeable of the city and history. He takes pride of his work and treats his clients with respect and privacy. He brought us to the top of the city with an amazing view of the harbor and city - by the way, we will be using the family picture Ivo took of us for our holiday card this year. Then after lunch, he took us to the next town, Cavtat, a famous resort/city of the rich and famous... Where we enjoyed the harbor view and the walk to some churches. Here my son found some squid traveling along the harbor - water is crystal clear. We were so blessed by beautiful weather - in low 80's with almost no humidity. Dubrovnik is such a great city but I think the old city walls is by far the best walk you would not want to skip. Again, thanks to Ivo for showing my family a great time and sharing his knowledge of the city and history of Croatia with us.

“Private tour of Kotor fiord area”
Reviewed 1 September 2012

Ivo took us on a private day tour of Kotor fiord, Kotor and Budva by car. We were picked up at 8.30am in Dubrovnik and drove over the border to Montenegro. Ivo kept us entertained and had lots of interesting stories and insights into life growing up in Dubrovnik. We drove around the edge of the huge Kotor fiord and enjoyed a small boat trip to the pretty church of our lady of the rocks. This was followed by a lazy lunch at a nice cafe in old Kotor, after which Ivo showed us some of the sites and history. Next stop was a photo opportunity high up a switch-back mountain road overlooking the fiord, for some stunning views! We then drove to Budva for a look at the walled old town and a wander around. The drive back included a trip by car ferry across the fiord. We arrived back 6-7pm time after a really great day. The trip was well planned and good value for money. Ivo obviously has a deep knowledge of local history and kept us entertained the whole trip. The scenery is spectacular and there's lots of medieval history to take in too. Definitely recommend.
