Hi everybody
I'm a professional licensed Split tour guide.
Thanks to my mother my twin brother Oliver and I always loved history, so in natural sequence of things my brother and me become licensed tourist guides in Split.

I love when I can show my city to tourist, show you my city by the eyes of local resident, because I live all my life in old city center (Diocletian Palace) Roman ruins who are 1700 years old. I specialize in Roman history and history of the city Split but I also show filming spots of Game Of Thrones because Split was the Meereen city of slaves.

Book Emil's tour, it's great. We almost booked another tour that was cheaper, but booked with Emil based on his amazing reviews (and us both being twins, of course) and we're so pleased we did. Emil has so much knowledge about Split, and his stories bring it to life. His enthusiasm about it all is wonderful and engaging. He truly loves what he does. If I return to Split, I'd book his tour a second time. It ended up just the two of us on his tour, which was great for us and didn't seem to bother Emil at all. We left with such an amazing appreciation and understanding of Diocletians Palace and the history it's seen. Thanks so much Emil!

Do yourself a favor and book this tour. Emil was amazing and gave us so much information about the Diocletian Palace and it’s inhabitants. We never felt rushed and he extended the tour for us as we had so many questions. He is one of the best tour guides we’ve ever had.

It was the best history tour I’ve ever had! Emil was so well prepared and passionate about all what he explained to me that I was so sorry that I didn’t have a video to be able to record everything he taught me. He does know many interesting things that I couldn’t have known on my own. Besides, I was really lucky that he gave me the tour even if I was the only one there; but I know it would have been the same if there had been more people with us. If you ever go to Split, this is a tour you must do, with him.

Book this! Emil was the best your guide I've ever had (truly). He has a great personality and sense of humor, shares awesome stories that you won't hear elsewhere, and gives you a real sense of story and place. Nothing made me appreciate Split more than the knowledge I learned on this tour. Can't recommend enough.
