What you'll do

Discover with us this city born out of a historic coincidence, whose destiny will be to become the largest, best organized and most populous and prosperous town in medieval Istria.
Together, we will start in the lower town area and slowly make our way through the upper town, traveling back in time as we proceed uphill to Saint Euphemia’s, as people used to during the ancient Holy Week procession.
Why?
Because you should go beyond the bay area with its cafés and restaurants, beyond the beaches and the cocktail bars. Because this place hides secrets that have so far been difficult to discover and explore for the individual traveler as city tours were only available for organized groups.

We are locals. We were born here. We live and breathe Rovinj at its purest. It does matter to us to present it in a genuine and true way. We will tell you where we would buy the best fruits and vegetables, where the best coffee is made, where the cakes are sublime and the gelato leaves you breathless. You will get the local point of view on many topics. And this is something you cannot find in any guidebook. Honest!

Goran’s walking tour was the best! He knew so much about the history and how it linked up to other history. Our favorite part was how well he answered our questions about specific things, able to go on in-depth explanations to things we found particularly interesting. Probably our favorite tour guide of the last 3 months we’ve been in Croatia. Highly recommend!

Goran’s tour was fantastic. He’s incredibly knowledgeable and friendly and accommodating and almost speaks better English than I do as a native speaker. I walked away knowing so much more about Rovinj than I did before.

This was one of the best tours I have ever done. I walked away feeling like I really understand the history of Rovinj & the region from its origins up to what life is like here today. Goran has a true talent for explaining the historical relevance while making it entertaining. Definitely make time for this tour while in Istria!

Great introduction to the city, Goran seems to be an expert when it comes to history of Istria and Croatia. We especially liked that he doesn't just tell you the facts but also why they have come about this way. We definitely recommend booking the tour with Goran for first time visitors of Rovinj!

Parfaitement à l'aise en français, Goran nous a partagé sa passion avec précision et humour. Il s'est adapté à toutes nos questions et a une très bonne connaissance de l'histoire de Rovinj et de l'Istrie en général. C'était un très agréable moment, nous avons beaucoup appris sur la dynamique de cet endroit magique, et apprécié le professionnalisme de Goran.
