In most areas, we have Croatia Gems local partners on the ground out in Croatia to help you with booking transfers and organising excursions. They are a brilliant resource to help you to make the most of your holiday in Croatia with all the best contacts for days out and services!
Bozidar – Dubrovnik Based
Our resident Dubrovnik Rep, Bozidar, has been working with us for the best part of 10 years and is very popular with guests and villa owners alike. As a Dubrovnik local who grew up in Dubrovnik, he knows everyone and has worked with most villa owners and local companies over the years. He has a huge local knowledge and is a veritable Dubrovnik expert so whatever you want to do, he is your man! When he is not repping, he is to be found channeling his energies in to designing some of the best excursions and tours in Dubrovnik for his excursion company which we are sure will inspire Croatia Gems guests. We love his fresh, innovative and interesting ideas. Bozidar is also calm and quite unflappable and on hand in case you need him, so an all round great guy to have on side in Dubrovnik. Bozidar is a fully qualified sommelier and tour guide.
Tena – Dubrovnik Based
Tena made Dubrovnik her home 6 years ago and like many others before her fell in love with this enchanting city and its culture of living. She now considers herself a full-fledged local and enjoys exploring every bit of the area. This young professional graduated in Tourism and Hospitality Management in Dubrovnik’s branch of the Rochester Institute of Technology and is a certified Dubrovnik Local Tour Guide as well. Her sunny disposition is matched only by her ability to solve any situation on the fly which is exactly why she managed to obtain an enviable circle of Dubrovnik friends in a relatively short amount of time. Her interests lie in photography, media, communications and history and her favourite thing is hitting the road and discovering new things. She is beloved both by our guests and people she works with locally.
Split & Trogir Riviera
Matko – Trogir Based
Matko has been Croatia Gems's 'man on the ground' in Trogir for the last 10 years and is the main contact for guests on arrival and during their stay in the Trogir, Split area. He co-ordinates all guests and villa arrivals and is in touch with all the villa owners, transfer drivers, car hire suppliers etc, and is on hand for anything guests need during their stay. With an office on Trogir waterfront and an office in Split's old town, he and his team are perfectly placed to help with any requests guests might have! Especially so since he also runs an excursions company providing small group trips, tours and activities which he can advise Croatia Gems guests on. Often to be found speed boating to Hvar Island, Matko grew up in Trogir and is passionate about the area and getting out to explore it. He knows anyone who is anyone and all the best places to visit, eat and experience.
Nives – Split Based
Nives is the veritable back bone of the rep team in Split, running both offices and co-ordinating staff and guest operations alike. A Slovenian in origin she is a cool head in a Mediterannean land! She keeps things running like clockwork. She is Matko's partner and, like Matko, has a high level of professionalism and a passion for showing guests the best the region has to offer.
Milan – Supetar Based
Milan is from Brac Island and having grown up on the island, he knows it very well! He and his team are available to arrange transfers for you to your villa or apartment on Brac or around the island if you fancy a day out and about sight-seeing, and can also arrange a selection of interesting and exciting excursions and tours around the island on your behalf.
