Dear travelers, I welcome you to my hometown of Dubrovnik where I was born and raised. Let me tell you the history and the way of life as a local who has been living and working in the Old City for many years. Even in the hardest of times, during the recent Homeland War in Croatia, I was here, proudly defending the "Grad" and its people, as we, the locals call Dubrovnik with a capital G, meaning: „The City". As a fellow traveler who's traveled to every continent of the world, I know what it's like to be a tourist, so give me the opportunity and pleasure of meeting you and showing you this fascinating and enchanting Old City. As quoted by the famous Irish playwright, George Bernard Shaw: "If you want to see heaven on Earth, come to Dubrovnik". I truly believe that being a local and having many years of experience working in tourism will guarantee you only the best of the service and pleasure during your visit. So, why not choose one of the offered tours and get to know the little hidden secrets only the natives know, that have made Dubrovnik a unique and very special world known city, called „The Pearl of the Adriatic". Be my guest, take a tour and explore the depths of Dubrovnik and its divine surrounding area, dive into the history, culture, gastronomy, language, nature, art, tradition, customs, …. and enrich your knowledge and return home with the desire of coming back again! Looking forward to meeting you. Vlaho

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!

Vlaho was an exceptional tour guide! He is so passionate about this city and has so much knowledge. He’s like a historian! I was hanging on to every word he said as it was so interesting. We had a small group and casually walked through the old town stress free, he didn’t even need a microphone or head sets so it felt quite intimate which was nice. He also willingly spent an extra hour of his time after the tour had finished with my husband and I just answering all of our questions, teaching us more and just generally having a nice chat! We were so thankful. We would 100% recommend Vlaho’s tours if you want and authentic experience from a true local.

Thanks again Vlaho!

We were extremely unlucky to find awful weather in Dubrovnik. The tour was already booked so, despite the weather conditions we showed at the time and location booked and Vlaho was there waiting. He could have cancelled the tour because of the heavy rain since some spots were impossible to visit. Anyway he offered to give us a short version tour through the old city where he taught us about the history of Dubrovnik. And I must say, despite the conditions, was still amazing. His knowledge is beyond other tours we took around Europe. I believe is the weather was fine that five stars wouldn't be enough. I totally recommend.

Response from Vlaho:

Dear Cristiano, Thank you for the outstanding review! I'm so sorry that I couldn't run the standard tour but sometimes you cannot do anything against the force of nature. It is still great that we still managed to cover the shorter orientation tour giving you at least some general knowledge about Dubrovnik. Once again sorry for the bad weather! Wishing you the very best, Vlaho
