I always say, do not consider me only as your guide, but as your friend, who is trying to make your trip more comfortable for you! At the end, it all about you, and if you are happy, I am happy! I will always treat you as any of my friends and with a passion to show the best of Croatia, to share and pass the knowledge, history, memories. Which will hopefully lead to great experiences and long-lasting memories and friendships from Croatia!
What places and activities do you specialize in?
"Croatia is the main destination that we are specialized in, although occasionally we do work in Slovenia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. We do mostly outdoor activities such as; hiking, kayaking, rafting, sailing, cycling, multisport. But we also like to emphasize the cultural side of Croatia, either combined with activities or on its own. There is a lot of cultural and UNESCO heritage in Croatia that is worthy of experiencing. You might say that we do experiential travel!"
How did you get involved in travel?
"I did not get involved in travel, since it was naturally part of me. As the outdoorsman from the early age, I liked to explore. I remember, in elementary school, I would go for hours hiking on neighboring hills, climb the trees, or sit in kayak and paddle out and follow the coastline and explore. Many years afterward, while studying ( Law and Mechanical engineering) one of my friends called me to join him on a rafting trip. Next thing you know, I was rafting, kayaking, hiking, sailing and doing all kind of things that I would do on my own, but now i did it for work! I got licensed for many technical skills, and for classical guiding to be able to officially share my knowledge and local history. I enjoy helping others to experience Croatia."
Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.
"Few years ago, I got Top Guide award, which led me to the USA where I was traveling almost for a month along the West coast. I experienced, Seattle, Mt.Ranier, Portland, Multnomah falls, Redwoods Park, Sacramento, Yosemite, San Francisco and bay area, Napa Valley, Anaheim, West Hollywood Santa Monica, Las Vegas, Zion, Bryce, Grand Canyon, Joshua tree, Disneyland, San Diego, Torrey Pines, Safari park and more...
Beautiful places. Great Experience. There are so many things and places around the world to be seen, and it is not fair to say that one is better than the other, they are just different, and that is the beauty of traveling. However, the thing that I will remember the most, is the beautiful people from all those places that I was traveling to. Although I was a solo traveler, I was never alone. There was always someone who joined me on my adventures. And without those people, my friends, my experience would never be the same. For example, throwing the fish on Pikes market in Seattle or singing with gospel singers.
Overall the whole trip was experience that I will never forget. It felt really good. Great. Warm around my heart! And that is the experience and feeling I want to share and give to others."

Best of the dalmatian coast - 8 days, Croatia - Sep 5 - Sep 11, 2018
Our Croatian trip was excellent. Booking through KimKim went without a hiccup and was very easy, however, the best part of the planning was the impeccable service that Robi and his team offered. Robi was very attentive at our requests and made sure we got what we wanted, for example, hotels and activities away from children.
Goran, our guide and driver was very knowledgeable and kind. He was flexible with the itinerary and accommodating to our requests. He took us to a small, family-owned... read more
Split day trip-island, swimming, snorkeling, Croatia - Aug 7 - Aug 10, 2018
Robi did a wonderful job coordinating a half-day boating trip for us near Split, Croatia. When I inquired about the trip, he was able to find a trip at a price and schedule that fit our family's needs. His turnaround time was great and he had excellent communication with us from the trip planning to following up with us after the trip. Our skipper on the boat, Sime, made the day so fun and relaxing! He took care of everything we needed, was very flexible and kind. I would highly recommend this trip!
Trip to croatia, Croatia - Jul 15 - Jul 27, 2018
Kimkim is a very convenient service, and I am beyond thrilled with the local guide they connected us with in Croatia. Robi of Soul of Croatia (aka ACDC) helped us plan the perfect honeymoon!

He is attentive, responsive, considerate, detail oriented, friendly, professional, and makes amazing recommendations! While we were on the ground, we did tours with his colleague Goran who was also... read more
