Hello everyone! My name is Deša, and I am a local tour guide for Dubrovnik. I was born and raised here, I spent my childhood playing in the streets of this beautiful Old Town. Growing up in this centuries-old city encouraged me to study history and now, I am more than happy to share my knowledge with everyone interested. If you want to know more about life in the middle ages, book a tour with me!

We arrived 10 minutes before the tour time and waited until 10 minutes after the tour was to start. I messaged Desa on the GuruWalk app at the tour time. No response and no Desa. We were definitely in the correct spot. Very disappointing.

Not sure what happened but Desa didn’t show up. Messaged her 4 times, no answer. Better off not booking a tour with her like the previous reviews suggested (and we dumbly ignored)

One of the best tours in Dubrovnik. We saw parts of the city that we would have never discovered on our own. Thanks, Deša!
