Branko, our tour guide was really knowledgable about Dubrovnik and its history. He was personable and funny. The city has a colorful and unique history and Branko made it come alive. Our whole family throughly enjoyed it. It was well worth the time and money.

On a two-week cruise that included many scenic historical ports, Dubrovnik topped our list. The city is beautiful just off the Adriatic with its stunning Old Town and fascinating history. The views from the encircling wall are amazing yet matched by the architectural array of

This is an audio tour so you can follow behind the guide listening through an ear piece to his commentary rather than grouping in huddles to hear him. Our guide started well and was interesting and informative but quickly went off script to quirky stories, his difficult school

Hello Tyranny1057, This a tour with a live local, licensed tour guide, not audio tour, who depending on the group size sometimes uses a microphone and the guests get receivers and earpieces so that they can hear the (live) guide better so they can enjoy the tour better and easier. Now, reading the review where you take things out of context and someone says the guide spoke about "heavy metal music", people reading the review might assume that that guide is crazy (I know I would), but when you put that statement into the context of 1,5 h tour it all begins to make sense. Marko mentions death metal near one small church where after the story about this church he talks about the church today, that surprisingly in that small church classic music concerts are sometimes held there. He then adds that this kind of music in these modern times is not everyone's cup of tea, ie for him death metal music would be a better fit. Normally around 90 % of guests accept this with a smile and carry on. He may have mentioned his music again near fresh market and Gundulić square where that metal sculpture (majority of other sculptures in the city are made of stone, so metal sculpture is interesting for that reason too) of this poet is damaged over the years by pigeon poop, which, since it contains acid would damage every kind of metal, except for his beloved death metal. Again, guests smile and carry on... We can respect that for you the fact where Marko went to school, or his taste in music was too much to know, but majority of our guests love when the guides give some personal information and Marko as a true local sees no harm in that. Marko has been with us since 2007, he is indeed quite a character with unique hairstyle, clothes, quiz, even a style of walking, but a character that majority of our guests absolutely love. We do. We are very proud to have unique Marko with us for so many years. Unfortunately, he is as expected not everyone's cup of tea. Nobody is. Not everyone understands how genius Marko is, and sure, we can understand that. BUT, the reviews range from 1* (the worst) to 5* (the best). We are shocked that you felt the need to rate Marko with 1* (you reviewed Davor's wall tour in another review with 4*), please allow me to explain why: - You got your money's worth, booking process was smooth, everything we promised - we delivered - Marko is a professional, kind, highly educated true local guide, in his early 30s, born and raised in Dubrovnik, that to this day lives in the old town. He is our only guide that lives in the old town, only a handful people do, which is why he was proud to show the group where he went to school - His English is perfect - In 13 years he has not lost one bit of enthusiasm - Marko is the "entertainer" type of a guide, primarily focused on cool, interesting stories, and a few times in the tour he mentions a few of his personal things that he very neatly connects with the tour. Ie. when he talks about schools and education he points out that he also attending that school. He surely didn't talk bother the group about his difficult school days, which were not difficult at all. - Marko is simply said not the type of person that would put himself in the focus of the tour. He likes to add a few small details to remind the guests that they are guided by a true local, convinced that the guests will appreciate this. And they do. Just not always, and this is ok. We are sorry that you were disappointed even though we cannot really understand why. Kind regards, Maris Dubrovnik Walks
