Hi, I am Jakov, Croatian 3/1 tour/local guide,professional driver and travel professional. Being a people person and very passionate about history and culture, I have always been aspiring for and pursuing new experiences. My greatest pleasure has always been travelling and exploring the world. I have been traveling in different countries getting to know their cultures for more than 15 years now. However, during past few years I have been working as a tour guide and a tour leader throughout Croatia and surrounding region which ultimately became my most favorite occupation. It has been a dream come true when I got the opportunity to pass on my knowledge and passion for my country with my dear guests from all over the world. Sharing the glory and the beauty of Croatia and our region with my future friends continues to be my greatest joy.

Lake Bled and Ljubljana with a difference
for Jakov 'The Guide'’s tour (Day Trip to Slovenia from Zagreb)
A fabulous day for my cousin and I touring two of the highlights of Slovenia yesterday with Jakov! We couldn’t have asked for a better guide to spend the day with!! Jakov’s enthusiasm, humour, personalised attention, knowledge and story telling surpassed our expectations. He made sure the day was what we wanted combined with the best that these two places had to offer, providing information in both English and Croatian.
Thank you from Mare and Lisa for making our day a memorable one with lots of laughs!
Awesome day, one we’ll remember always! ❤️
Private Zagreb City Tour is Great
for Jakov 'The Guide'’s tour (Private Zagreb City Tour)
Don´t miss the opportunity to have your private tour. The beauty of it is that you can stop and ask questions, visit or skip the landmarks, take pictures when you want, buy something without delaying the rest of the tour.

Marco was great, well educated in history and anecdotes of the city. I really enjoyed the tour.

From now on, I will consult first likealocal, before I book a tour.
