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

Very informative walk - Vlaho interspersed historical facts with Game of Thrones titbits and the occasional joke. The two hours went by quickly. We would highly recommend this tour and guide.
