PORTAL GUIDES come from a variety of backgrounds, each contributing a specific knowledge, experience and personality to their enthusiastic work. They are the hart and the soul of our tours.
Meet our incredible team of devoted guides and find out why they are so passionate about sharing the best of Croatia with you!
ERNEST has been Portal's guide from the first day so you can imagine how knowledgeable guy he is. Passionate biker, a true lover of wine and vineyards, family man and father of two girls - are just some of the things this wonderful man has turned his talents to over the years.
Ernest is leading our tours to Krka Waterfalls and Šibenik, as he has been living in Amsterdam for a while, he will be happy to reveal to you his knowledge even in Dutch.
PETAR has studied Culture and Tourism so he is familiar with Croatian history, culture, customs and everything Croatian! Revealing to the guests such a small but valuable things like a nice local restaurants, telling them the sories about our country they can never find in the guidebooks, is a great thing that makes memorable every tour with Petar. Croatian national parks are „in the palm of his hand” so you will meet him on our tours to Plitvice Lakes and Krka Waterfalls.
SILVIO loves history, cultular heritage, natural beauty and phenomena of his homeland and will be thrilled if you give him a chance to represent you his beautiful country. Also if you would like to brag about achivements of your favorite football club you have found the right person to talk to. Althought he is leading tours to Croatian natonal parks almost every day, he is still amazed with its beauty (and the taste of food in local restaurant ) and will be happy to show you the best of Plitvice Lakes and Krka Waterfalls.
ANDRO is our guide and driver on private tours, passionate fisherman with contagious enthusiasm and energy. His family is originally from Bosnia and Hercegovina, therefore his speciality are tours to Mostar, Medjugorje, Dubrovnik… His love for travel, great sense of humour and enormous passion for gastronomy mean just beeing around Andro is great fun. If you want to get on his good side you should talk to him about Anthony Bourdain.
TIHO is our bus driver, according to many of our guests, the funniest and the safest driver ever!
Sometimes on the tour, you might think he is the guide as he is a real storyteller with great sense of humour. Sometimes he even gets to indulge his first love – singing – in front of our groups as he is „klapa singer“ (traditional a cappella singing in Dalmatia).
ANDREJ has been traveling around before deciding to become a guide. He is an expert driver who has traveled almost all European countries. Andrey is extremely professional and helpfull person who will take care of all your needs and wishes on our 2-3 day tours and private tours. He is really enloved with the job he is doing and we are sure he is going to convey his enthusiasm to you.
IVAN has become a part of our company as a driver, but he has found that sharing his knowledge and showing his wonderful country to different people can really be an amazing new experience.
Just as devoted to his job and the guests, so avid fan of his favorite futball team Hajduk he is.
He is a driver and guide on our group and private tours to the south part of our country and surroundings, so let him get you to fall in love with Mostar and Dubrovnik.
MATKO the youngest guy in our team, is a captain on our speed boat tours to the most beautiful Dalmatian islands. He has the energy and hospitality of the cheerful young man and incredible skills of the experienced captain. His mother's family is originally from Solta island so he has always been conected to the sea and will show you that Dalmatia is much more than just sun and sea!
As a young man full of energy he has many hobbies among which are windsurfing, freeclimbing and fishing.
ANTE is a crew member and skipper, right hand to our captain Matko and right hand to all our guests on our speed boat tours. This charming athlete will always make you feel like „in the wright hands“ while on boat as privately he is kinesiologist and physical education teacher. In his free time you will probably meet him somewhere around playing futball or walking with his dog.
