Exciting tour - great story telling
Great experience - professional and friendly guide with a lot of background knowledge. We booked a private tour which was amazing, breathless suspense and fabulous way of story telling.

Terrific Tour
A big thank you to Marija for managing to fit us in for a tour. We joined her for the 'Dark Tales of the Old Town on the last night of our holiday and both me and my son thoroughly enjoyed this terrific tour. Dubrovnik is such an atmospheric city with such a long history and Marija is an enigmatic and captivating storyteller, perfectly capturing the mood- weaving in the history with her tales.
It was fabulous to get away from the crowds, explore hidden back streets and discover some fascinating stories- thoroughly recommended.

Captivating
I was captivated by the stories our guide shared and I learned some surprising things! So much History! This tour also took us to some less traveled little areas of town, and added positively to my overall experience of Dubrovnik! I’m so glad we went and I look forward to doing the other two of the three tours that are offered.

Great tour of the Old Dubrovnik at night
Jul 2020
Very enjoyable walk around the old town of Dubrovnik with fantastic historical and creepy stories. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking to explore the old town. I think it's better than touring during the day. Our guide was very knowledgeable and responsive to questions. We never felt rushed, and while there are certainly stairs to climb, we found it manageable for most folks.

Great nighttime activity
We really enjoyed our tour with Marija and exploring Dubrovnik in the off season with a small group felt like a very special experience. We almost had the whole city to ourselves as she told us a bunch of great stories about the history of the Old Town and its residents. It was a fun mix of history and legends, and it’s clear Marija has a lot of knowledge and passion about the topic. She was very kind and answered all of our questions throughout the night. Would definitely recommend the tour, especially since it can be tough to find activities in the evening when attractions are closed. Thank you! - Eden & Dorian

So so great!
This was one of the best tours of my whole journey (which was through Slovenia, Croatia, and Bosnia.) Marija is super knowledgeable and her passion is so obvious! She showed us parts of the city that none of the other tour guides did. And she can answer so many questions that aren’t just “dark take” related but are also just historical facts. I’d go to all of her tours if I lived here! Don’t pass this tour up!

Historic overview of all things dark.
Oct 2019 • Couples
This tour was so cool! Easy to find the meeting spot and Marija has a lantern with a red candle in it. The mood was set. It was perfect. Dark, eerie, and interesting tales of the not so known about Dubrovnik. I wish I had the time to do the other tours she offers because she really enjoys what she does. Her voice and demeanor really makes this a great way start your visit in Old Town. Plus, you get to see pats if the city that you may not have gone into on your own. An added bonus, there are cats all over the place that lend themselves to the ambience of the tour. Thank you very much, Marija. This was superfantastic.
