Great tour for someone who likes walking around and trying local food (me!). The tour has very good balance between walking, talking and eating. Vicencia (I hope I spell the name correct, if not, V. don't kill me:) ) have opened my eyes to Split and if I remember one thing is to look up:) Totally recommend!

As someone who doesn't spend that much money on exeriences, this was definitely worth it. It felt like you were spending that much in food, getting insider culture tips and laughs. Thank you so much Olga for a pleasant time :) we really enjoyed all the food you showed us and walking home completely stuffed. Pro-tip: Don't eat before hand. We skipped breakfast and we still walked away full and with leftovers haha

Sehr zu empfehlen wenn man die kroatischen Spezialitäten lokal, frisch und aus eigener Herstellung kennen lernen und probieren möchte. Olga war super nett und hat sich richtig viel Mühe gegeben! Satt, glücklich und mit tollen Erinnerungen und Neuem wissen kommt man von dieser Tour zurück

Our tour with Olga was delightful. We ate lots of little things at different stands in the green market and wandered through the old city learning about its history before having a delicious meal with great wines. Olga is an awesome guide — personable, funny, interesting, and knowledgeable about both Croatian food and Split itself. She also insightfully answered questions we had about the Yugoslav War, and even taught us a bit of the Croatian language. Recommended!

This was a wonderful tour. Olga shared many special stories of cooking and helped us to sample some of the best food and wine in Split. We had a great time and loved every minute of the tour!

Jeg og kjæresten min var de eneste på turen, luksus! Lucija var varm i velkomsten, delte personlige samt kulturelle historier med oss. De forskjellige restaurantene var veldig bra, spesielt det første stoppet likte vi veldig godt. Nydelig mat og en opplevelse vi kommer til å huske lenge. Kan anbefale denne touren på det varmeste :)
