Hi, my name’s Ante Batarelo, I’m a licensed tour guide / operator & owner of Private Guides in Croatia.

English is my native language as I grew up in Sydney, Australia and graduated English Language & Literature. I’ve been living in Split since 1991 and apart from teaching have been an active tour guide since 2000.

Over the years I’ve shown Croatia’s sights to hundreds of people including many celebrities and internationally acclaimed people, i.e. former Israeli President Shimon Peres, CNN reporter Christiane Amanpour, US Senator Mark Begich & US travel guru Rick Steves.

Some of the tour operators I work with are A&K, The Wayfarers, ROW Adventures and VIP clients for the Croatian Tourist Board.

My itineraries range from walking tours of the 1700 year old Diocletian’s Palace in Split, sites like the UNESCO Island town of Trogir, Croatia’s acclaimed National Parks, ‘Off the beaten track’ destinations, ‘Island Hopping’, Croatia has over 1000 islands, must sees like Dubrovnik and exotic places like Mostar in neighboring Bosnia, Montenegro & other hidden gems.

I’d love to show you the sites of this unique part of the world and tell you all about  the history, culture, customs, trivialities and of course give you plenty of time to indulge in the local cuisine.

Write to me and let me know whether you’re arriving on a port of call or would like a customized multiple day itinerary and I’ll get back to you within 24 hours.

A memorable experience is guaranteed.

Ante Batarelo
