Your money's worth with a knowledgeable fun guide Filip is enthusiastic about the places he takes you and wants you to do everything you want to do (and what he wants you to do). He went the extra mile for us which turned into a few long but glorious days. On our first day of three, he picked us in Dubrovnic and we went to Ston, where we climbed a piece of what was, when it was built, the longest defense wall in the world after the great wall of China. After that, a boat to Korcula where he handed us off to a local guide whose family had been stone masons there going back 800 years. After leaving Korcula we stopped for a wine tasting at a local vineyard, where we bought a few bottles. We learned that the area has vines that were original to Croatia, but transplanted to Italy. Our final stop was at a local mussel and oyster farm run by a gentleman who decided to leave banking for a simpler life. Beautiful setting and great food, and my wife and I are not huge seafood fans.On day two he picked us up at 7:30AM and headed to Montenegro. We had breakfast by the water in Parest. We took a quick tour of the town and headed for Kotor. Filip explained that the area has everything, mountains, sea, hiking, biking, swimming, boating, excellent food and history. We walked another wall, this one the third longest in Europe. For dinner, Filip recommended a secluded family restaurant that we would not have found on our own and we had another great meal in a beautiful setting. We got back to Dubruvnic after 12 hours just in time for a dusk swim in the Adriatic near our Airbnb. On day 3 he drove us to Split, where we continued our journey with other guides. After departing ways one of the bottles of wine we had bought leaked through the cork, and we contacted Filip about it. Since we were returning to Dubrovnic for one last night there before flying out, he got us a replacement and arranged to meet us for the handoff. He is knowledgeable, enthusiastic, energetic, and flexible (if you’re not up for 12 hour days, don’t worry). You get your money's worth and will not be disappointed.

You must take this tour! What a great day! Had the best time with Filip enjoying this beautiful country. Filip made sure everything was perfect. Got to walk the walls of Kotor and eat at a local Konoba. Very informative and can’t wait to go back!

Perfect day in Montenegro Filip gave us an absolutely magical day in Montenegro. This was the highlight of a 25-day European trip for our 25th anniversary, which included the Amalfi Coast and Tuscany--yes, it topped even those incredible destinations. Enjoy the comfort of your private sedan and take in the knowledge, history and stories that Filip will share with you. His enthusiasm and passion is contagious! He also made multiple stops specifically to make sure we got all the best photos AND took photos of us.Our day started in the lush farmland of the Konavle Valley. You don't even need to go to Italy to see ancient cypresses dotting the slopes.After we crossed into Montenegro, we had a seaside snack in Perast gazing at turquoise waters, we climbed the fortress walls of Kotor for a spectacular view of the Old Town. and we had one of the best meals EVER at a family restaurant on their 300+ year-old property, which included an old mill and natural spring.Philip is an outstanding guide. I HIGHLY recommend this tour, top-notch quality -- A+. 10/10.Thank you Filip for an incredible day that will be a cherished memory forever!

What an incredible day! Montenegro is a gorgeous country and it was made even more special because of the tour that I took with Filip. Punctual, friendly, humorous and knowledgeable are some of the adjectives that I'd use to describe him.During our day together, I went to Perast and saw Our Lady of the Rocks (where the found the image of the Virgin Mary in 1452) and St. George island. I also had the famous perast torta at a stunning water facing restaurant. We went to Kotor and I hiked up to Our Lady of Remedy Church, which was another location with a gorgeous view. After this, I Filip drove to a truly one of a kind viewpoint above Kotor. We ended the day by having a late lunch at a pristine and antiqued (in the best way possible) restaurant and then drove to a winery overlooking the Bay of Kotor.As a solo female traveler, I always felt safe and respected and that's something I truly appreciate. I'll definitely be back to Montenegro and Croatia and will use this tour company to make my travels more memorable.

Day trip from Dubrovnik to Montenegro This was a decent ride from Dubrovnik to Montenegro by a comfortable 4 door sedan. Filip had provided us a detailed description of the places including Preast, Kotor, etc. and did recommended us a short boat cruise in Preast and this was great. Regarding the lunch, we were introduced to a secret beautiful place. All in all, we did enjoy the whole arrangement by Filip.

Montenegro Day Trip with Filip To tell about this, It was out of the world. One can not defined the beauty of the place until you visit the place personally. I would suggest everyone who is visiting Dubrovnik to go and have a tour of Montenegro. its breathtaking, the mountains, sea, and amazing landscape. This was my first private tour and I was bit skeptical about it, however Filip was just amazing, he so enthusiastic and passionate about his job, that he deserve to be appreciated. He gets so friendly with everyone from border security to a waiter. He loves to interact and talk to people. I will definitely recommend to travel with Filip if you are going to Montenegro. Also, personally he loves the place. Filip You Rock!

We did a private tour with Filip to Kotor Montenegro. Filip is very knowledgeable and easy to communicate with in English. He made us feel comfortable the entire time and showed us hidden gems and great viewing spots. I highly recommend taking a tour with Filip.

We experienced 2 absolutely fantastic tours while staying in Dubrovnik and Filip was our guide for one of them. Filip is extremely patient and we never felt rushed so we were able to truly enjoy every part of the complete Bosnia tour. Honestly, I didn’t have high expectations and wow it was absolutely incredible! Definitely add it to your list, trust me! This was a full-Day filled with so much. We were lucky to have Filip and went to several spots in Bosnia including the waterfalls & Mostar. He was absolutely fantastic! Very kind and patient as well. Filip is truly a fountain of knowledge and very passionate. I was worried I booked too many days in Dubrovnik, but after two 1 day tours with Andro and Filip I feel like I need to stay more time to enjoy more of their tours to see the region. Getting to see 2 new countries was such an unforgettable experience! I will send all of my friends on these tours when they visit Dubrovnik. 5 star service all the way!! Highly recommend! Important Side note that I forgot to mention in my previous review: he has an absolutely beautiful car, well taken care of, so clean and spacious! My husband is very tall 195cm (6’4”) and he fit comfortably in the front seat with plenty of room behind him.

We booked a private tour with Filip from Dubronik to Montenegro. Filip was promptly picking us up from our hotel, gave us many history of local areas, movie locations, tips for photo op. He also stopped at many nice spots along the way to Perast, Kotor Bay, Kotor town, so on for breaks and photo ops. We enjoyed our tour very much and had many beautiful photos. Unfortunately, due to our schedule, we did not get chance to check out the local hidden farm and lunch spot... maybe next time. We definitely will recommend Filip to our friends and family!

Filip is a great guide! We had the best time on our day trip from Dubrovnik to the Bay of Kotor in Montenegro. He was very knowledgeable, engaging and attentive. He made stops so we could take in the beautiful scenery, take photos and have a coffee or a meal. Our trip was at the end of July (so very hot out) and he would start the car early so that the air conditioning would be started for our comfort. Small things like that are greatly appreciated after walking around in the heat. It was a very memorable trip full of learning and laughter. I cannot thank Filip enough for imparting his knowledge and infectious positivity upon our small group. I would highly recommend booking any tour with Filip!

Filip was an amazing guide on our trip from Dubrovnik to Korcula. Very knowledgeable and kind. He went out of his way to make sure we were able to experience all of the sites we were interested in. We hope to visit Croatia again soon and use Filip!

Filip is an exceptional guide, and would recommend him to anybody for a tour in Croatia and beyond. He is truly knowledgeable and passionate about his country, its history and completely up to date with its politics and current events (and is a great conversationalist). Time spent between tour locations / stops flew by, and we learned so much during the day. Filip went above and beyond to make the day exceptional and truly cared about our experience, making sure we had a great time. Thanks, and hope to see you again in future!
