I’ve asked myself so often while travelling; “What makes a great, no exceptional, guide?” I don’t believe there is a clear-cut answer. However, a review of Vicencija and her tour makes it easy to label her exceptional. Vicencija enabled us to feel at ease immediately. Her greeting of us at the easy to locate meeting-point was friendly and reassuring. Vicencija is experienced and insightful, as a result we never felt we were being rushed from one location to the next. Her knowledge of her city, it’s people, history and culture was obvious and her enthusiasm for it infectious. Vicencija’s passion for Split, it's people, history and culture is truly captivating, compelling and absorbing. So much so that at the end of our tour we felt our own passion for this exceptional city, its history, food, drink and culture.
Vicencija ended her tour with lunch at the outstanding Makarun. Here we ate sumptuous local fare, including homemade macaroni of exceptional quality, served by a patient and brilliant waiter. The meal, and with it this wonderful tour (including genuinely enjoyable conversation with Vicencija), ended with what my wife described as the “best coffee (latte) I’ve ever had!”
This tour is highly recommended.
