About me & my work
My name is Ivica Profaca, I'm from Split, Croatia, and I would like to help you experience my hometown, but also the rest of the region of Dalmatia . I am a licensed guide for Split-Dalmatian and Šibenik-Knin Counties in Croatia and member of the Association of Tourist Guides Split. As a guide, I work with some of the most prominent agencies operating in this area, and also offer tours through platforms like Viator and AirBnB.
Besides guiding, I have decades of experience in journalism, in local, national and international news, both for Croatian and foreign media. This kind of experience made me deal with social issues, and gave me an insight into all segments of life in Split, Dalmatia and Croatia. Today, I am an official blogger with the Tourist Board of Split.
Of course, I'm passionately interested in history, heritage and social life of Split and surrounding area. I have never stopped exploring squares, street corners, people, events, stories, secrets, or biking and hiking paths.
My tours include priceless heritage of Split and vicinity, from Roman Emperor Diocletian's era to present days, but also hidden gems and spirit only locals can know about. I also offer tours for families with children, and theme tours on Jewish heritage and hiking tours. What you see in My Tours section of this web site is just a sample.
Welcome to Split, Dalmatia and Croatia!
Another OMG day. I had a tour/discussion about the history of Split this afternoon. Except I was the only one in my group. Therefore an incredible 1:1 transference of information. Ivica was my guide (...) the amount of knowledge about the little niches and little known facts is amazing. 5 stars across the board!
I think tourists know when they have a guide who as just memorized some historical facts and delivers the tour with little gusto. This is not true of Ivica. His passion for history is immediately visible and we felt like a little family group traveling through history with Ivica
