Adriatic Destination Expert & Split/Trogir City Host
Antonija was fabulous. She was always available and helped us arrange additional excursions once in country. We were so well taken care of and her advice on what to do was excellent.
Antonija has a long background in the tourism industry, previously working for a tour company in her hometown of Omiš, but her whole family is involved in tourism, so you could say it's hereditary. Her time spent living in the UK has contributed to her excellent command of English and her passion for travel also leads to an excellent understanding of the needs of our guests. Having previously studied for six years in Zagreb, Antonija is now based in Split, not far from her hometown. As a city host for both Trogir and Split, she is responsible for making detailed arrangements for guests' trips as well as meeting them when they arrive and supporting them during their travels.
