My name is Ivica Profaca, owner of Cardo Tours, licensed guide for Split-Dalmatian and Šibenik-Knin Counties in Croatia, and member of the Association of Tourist Guides Split.
Besides guiding, I have decades of experience in journalism, both for Croatian and foreign media. Today, I am a blogger with the Tourist Board of Split.
We are passionately interested in the history, heritage and social life of Split and the surrounding area. I never stop exploring squares, street corners, people, events, stories, secrets, or biking and hiking paths.
Our tours include the priceless heritage of Split and its vicinity. Also, we can take you to any part of Central Dalmatia, from UNESCO World Heritage sites to hidden gems of the Dalmatian hinterland, its natural and historical jewels. We will introduce you to hidden spots, away from beaten paths, very often not less spectacular than those widely known.
We also offer tours for families with children and theme tours, for example about Jewish heritage, as well as some easier hiking tours.
We aim to fulfil all your wishes, interests and goals you might have on your vacation. That's why we called our agency Cardo Tours; just like Romans called their main city routes Cardo, we will take you to our route to Dalmatian history and heritage!
Welcome to Split, Dalmatia
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
