Dear Ivana,

We all had a lovely time thanks to you,

All the best,

HI Zoran and Ivana,

Brad and I had such a great time visiting Montenegro.  Our favorite spots were in Kotor and Perast, and we especially enjoyed the swimming and the restaurant at the old mill.  We also took Zoran’s recommendations and had a wonderful dinner at Moby Dick, followed by gelato at Dolce Vita.  Brad and I liked Dolce Vita so much that we had to try their crepes as well!  We had an unforgettable time in Dubrovnik!  Thank you and we wish you the best of luck in your continued business of private tours.  We will definitely reach out to you both again if ever back in this area.

Thank you,

Wendy and Brad

Hi, Ivana,

I wanted to tell you that our trip with Zoran yesterday was very well done.  He showed us some things that I do not think we would have seen on a full bus-type tour and explained many things. He was most pleasant. I would recommend your services.

Hi Ivana,  

Just a quick e-mail to say 'thank you” for looking after us in Dubrovnik.   You made it very easy for us with organizing the taxi to and from the airport and escorting us both ways and providing information on restaurants etc.   We will always have fond memories of our visit to Dubrovnik and the kind Croatian people.

Kindest regard

Dear Zoran,

Thank You so much for our day trip to Pocitelj, Mostar, and the Waterfalls.    We had such a good time.  You are a great guide, we learned alot and enjoyed all the sights.   Thanks for helping to pick out our food in Mostar, it was the best food we ate while on our trip. 

We liked the way you do the tour-- showing us a little of Mostar and the letting us stroll around by ourselves and seeing the sites.

It was so nice to be picked up and returned  almost at our door.

Stopping at the Oyster Farm in Ston on the way back was so much fun, our first Oysters!   They went down smooth!

Phil and Gail - August 2011

Ivana, thank you for the service you have provided it has helped make this stay a very enjoyable and memorable one.

Bozoc - August 2011

Thank you Ivana for making our time in Dubrovnik so enjoyable- we had a wonderful time and your helpfulness and advice played a big part in that. Nothing was too much trouble; Ivana gave us excellent recommendations of where to eat and drink in the Old Town, as well as telling us key bits of local information such as which number bus to get to Cavtat, and most importantly, arranging a day trip for us to Montenegro! Zoran (Ivana's husband and our driver!) was fantastic too; he took us everywhere we wanted to go and to a lovely sandy beach and was great company on the journeys to and from Montenegro, and the airport!

Thanks again for all of your help and we hope to see you again on our new trip to Dubrovnik!

Sian, Katherine, Jules and Hannah - August 2011

Thank you again for all of your help with our Dubrovnik vacation.  Apartment Carmel was absolutely prefect for our getaway.  The apartment was located in an excellent area providing easy access to the best parts of the city.  The apartment itself was beautifully appointed and very comfortable.  We especially enjoyed the balcony.  The well-supplied kitchen was also a wonderful feature and one of our favorite parts of the trip was picking up locally grown mussels and cooking them for dinner!  The wifi in the apartment was also invaluable for helping organize our stay while we were there.  Last, but certainly not least, we appreciate all of your help.  You were extremely responsive to all of our questions, even arranging a tour for us upon our request at the last minute - it was like having our own concierge!! 

Thanks again and we hope to see you soon!

Randall - July 2011

Hi Ivana, I never got the time to email you as when we came back from the wedding had to much to do. I would like to say Thank you for everything that you did for us and the perfect organization at the same time. I have never experienced such a great host like you and so honest about everything. I would like to thank you once more for all the efforts and hard work that you put to make sure we gonna have a great time in Dubrovnik. We are wishing you all the best and hope to see you soon. Have an amazing summer in Croatia. Lots of love

Hi Ivana and Zoran we made it home safe and are just getting back to normal, thanks again for everything you guys were the best.

Hope to see you guys again soon

--Mario and Robin-- July 2011

Thank you so much again for your and Zoran's wonderful hospitality. We loved the apartment and enjoyed everything about our stay in Dubrovnik. 

--Jennifer--April 2011

I wanted to let you know that Zoran and his wife were exceptional!   They were punctual, professional, very customer-service focused, trustworthy and knowledgeable about Dubrovnik & Montenegro.  Zoran went above and beyond to find a horse riding stable for our kids and did an excellent job of incorporating  "kid friendly" venues and activities while on our day excursion to Montenegro.   That small gesture made a huge difference.

--Jackie--April 2011

Thank you so much for making our stay in Dubrovnik such a wonderful event.  The apartment was excellent as was your hospitality and thoughtfulness.

--Scott--September 2010

...The last 4 days we stayed in Dubrovnik and met the crowds. We were so spoiled from all the peacefulness of the other islands, that when we got to Dubrovnik we were bumping elbows with everyone. I didn't care for that. But we took 2 day trips to Mostar and Montenegro through a fantastic travel guy named Zoran at Vacation In Dubrovnik  that we forgot about all the crowds. Mostar Bosnia was a treat and Montenegro has beautiful scenery. Zoran our guide answered our two million questions with a smile. I highly recommend him. They also have apartments they rent out and manage as well. We loved walking the wall of Dubrovnik and I would recommend doing it early in the morning or before they close. We loved Croatia and will be going back. Go see Croatia. You won’t be disappointed.

-- Karen August 2010

Thanks to yourself and Zoran for all your assistance. We really enjoyed our visit and will strongly recommend it to our friends. You couldn't have been more helpful, particularly with all our complicated traveling arrangements. We really enjoyed the islands. My particular favorite was Lastovo. We hope to come back to see the rest of the coast.

Our trip to Montenegro was a real highlight.

Our best wishes for the rest of the summer and regards to Zoran.

- Jeanne -June 2010

Thank you so much for your help, it was a joy meeting you and simply a joy to be in Dubrovnik. The few days far exceeded any expectation and the apartment became a home to collapse into after a day of fun. 

Hope to return again soon. 

I will keep your contact details and pass onto anyone interested or inspired by our visit. I think my sister is already speculating a visit. 

Thanks again,

Just emailing to say what a GREAT time we had at your apartment ! Many thanks. It was just perfect.

All the facilities you might ever want and the stunning views! All the girls had the best time. We visited most of the places that were recommended by you or Ivana. Our favorite restaurant was Dubrovka - gorgeous. And we had cocktails three nights running at Gils overlooking the old port- Bliss. We had a cheap meal that night !

But your best assets in Dubrovnik are undoubtedly Ivana and Zoran. They were sooooooo

helpful with information etc. Zoran took us to Montengro for the day and was the perfect guide - he knew everyone ! I had to call Ivana a few times for info, and to book taxis for us and tips on how to get the grill working ! - she was always very happy to help.

Roberto was also a star.

The apartment was spotless and the linen and towels gorgeous. Home from home.

Best Regards

Perhaps the highlight of our vacation was the day we booked with Zoran from . Zoran picked us up at 9:00 for our day trip to Mostar. A native from Dubrovnik, he was an excellent guide and really engaged our sons in the tour - Zoran is a big sports fan! We stopped at picturesque places and small villages along the way where Zoran would explain the local culture. When we arrived in Mostar we walked through both sides and Zoran took us to a small Bosnian restaurant, which we never would have found on our own, for perhaps the best meal of our trip - meat, cheese and spinach pies along with a mixed grill that was absolutely delicious.

Zoran never rushed us and we wandered through the town and the small shops. I forgot to mention that Zoran was a chef for 10 years in Dubrovnik, so he was a great source for recommendations and advice, especially where NOT to go. Because many of our conversations revolved around food, Zoran took us to Ston on our way back to Dubrovnik, where we stopped at a family run oyster farm. My husband and sons ordered nearly 40 oysters (which were then pulled directly from the sea) and the owner provided complimentary home made wine, bread and mineral water as well. Again, this was a small oyster farm that we never would have found or could imagine that a traditional tour group would have encountered. By the end of the day, we felt like old friends.

Just a note to say how much Dave and I enjoyed our stay in dubrovnik and thanks again for your help with getting a taxi to the airport and for offers of other help - would certainly recommend dubrovnik and your apartment and assistance to any friends wishing to travel to Croatia - thanks again Liz and Dave

Thanks Ivana, we had a wonderful visit and the apartment was perfect for us. We appreciated all of your tips on restaurants and points of interest. Let Zoran know that we are appreciative of his role as well as he helped us move around and get a good sense of Dubrovnik on our way in from the airport. Again thanks for helping making this vacation a positive memory.

--Mike September 2010--

We would like to thank you for the service you provided, we could not fault it at all. We had a wonderful time and found the studio to be absolutely delightful and wonderfully located. Once again thank you for making a wonderful occasion even more wonderful. We will return.
