Exploring Diocletian’s Palace in Split

Heather, USA

When it comes to exploring and discovering the history of an area, Filip’s tour was one of the best experiences that my family has ever had. Filip’s knowledge of the city of Split, and his knowledge of Roman antiquity in general, went way beyond our expectations. Filip took the time to make sure that my family was comfortable, and ok with the extra time he was taking to explain many of the locations. We conversed, laughed and learned for almost 2 hours and we loved it! We can only hope to retain most of the really interesting things that we learned on the tour. This is the only tour we’ve done in Split, but we’d do it again before shopping for another. Split is a beautiful city, and this tour brought it to life even more.

Split at its Best

Sarah, USA

I can’t recommend Filip’s tour highly enough. He has an incredible knowledge of his hometown and was so eager to share. He was willing and able to answer any questions we had. Filip is also very kind and funny, making the tour super comfortable and engaging. He also showed us exactly where GOT scenes were filmed for fans like me. He was kind enough to show us around the farmers market after the tour and even bought us fresh Soparnik which was beyond gracious of him. Split is such beautiful city with a rich history and Filip’s tour is a must!
