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."

I recently had a 10 day adventure w a culinary flair trip in Croatia w 1 day in Bled, Slovenia. Our guide, Robert (Robi) Pincevic was awesome. I gave him a list of activities I wanted to do, ( hiking, biking, kayaking) , places I had to see like Plitvice NP and walk the walls in Dubrovnik. He sent a sample itenerary that seemed to have read my mind. A couple tweaks and the trip was a go. We( group of 4) started in Dubrovnik and ended in Zagreb.

I recently had a 10 day adventure w a culinary flair trip in Croatia w 1 day in Bled, Slovenia. Our guide, Robert (Robi) Pincevic was awesome. I gave him a list of activities I wanted to do, ( hiking, biking, kayaking) , places I had to see like Plitvice NP and walk the walls in Dubrovnik. He sent a sample itenerary that seemed to have read my mind. A couple tweaks and the trip was a go. We( group of 4) started in Dubrovnik and ended in Zagreb. Lodging was mostly family run B and B's. 1st place waterfront outside of Dubrovnik w a kayak for early morning paddles and nice trail along the water. Ston wasn't on my list but was suggested by Robi and indeed it is not to be missed. We stayed right in town w the walls in site, the family run Inn even wash our clothes while we went to Mljet NP. Another place not to be missed. After taking the car ferry to the island it was biking, swimming in a seclude cove. Plitvice NP is the reason I planned my trip to Croatia. I wasn't disappointed, we stayed at a local B and B just outside the park do we could beat the crowds, the host Velinka showed us around then asked if we want a rakia tasting. Of course! Good sleep that nite! Then at breakfast, packed us up the leftover homemade bread for our lunch. Not prearranged but inquired about a day on the water, sailing of motorboat. Robi made a few calls and it happened. We went to kolocep in a private boat instead of being on the ferrys schedule, had grilled calamari a specialty of the island. Then was able to go snorkeling in the caves! Nice touch. It was so nice having a private guide/driver who knew the area, didn't need mapquest once. Also seemed to know somebody in every town and was excited to tell us about the areas history. I have been on 5 guided trips and when I get back home I always say that I could have done that trip myself...but not this trip. Robi made the difference, we were able to see and experience so much more than had we been driving ourselves or w a tour bus. One more special touch we had lunch prepared by a local family in their home one day. Oh so good!
Trip was early June, 2019. Weather perfect for everything including swimming in the Adriac sea. Word of advice pack a beach towel there were so many opportunities for quick dips.

Goran, our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. He liked a joke - especially trying to teach us Croatian words! Though our itinerary was planned, Goran was happy to make changes to accommodate our holiday style. His insider knowledge meant we ate at some delicious family restaurants.

Our accommodation was great - a mixture of apartments and hotels, which suited us perfectly. Our hosts were friendly, and our rooms were clean and spacious.

We really enjoyed our trip to Croatian and would highly recommend touring with Robi and Goran.

Dalmatian coast self-drive tour - 12 days, Croatia - Jun 4 - Jun 13, 2019

Traveler: Juliet E. - Local specialist: Robert Pinčević

We had an amazing holiday and a lot of the credit should go to Robi, who was amazingly attentive both in London when we were planning the holiday and also in Croatia. He planned the trip extremely well for us and explained everything we needed to know, provided the best guidance and support but was never pushy. Communication was perfect and all Robi's recommendations were spot on.
We had such a good time, I have no hesitation in giving 5 star praise.

We can't thank Robi enough for helping us plan our trip to Croatia. All the bookings he made on our behalf were great - we were very happy with all our accommodation and our rental car booking. Robi arranged for Goran to drive us one day and that was a highlight for us. Robi kept in contact with us throughout the trip and managed any changes that needed to be made. When we had to leave Korcula unexpectedly early, Robi found us alternative accommodation which we so appreciated - arriving in Split late on a rainy night, it was wonderful that he'd made arrangements for us at short notice.
Our holiday in Croatia was even more wonderful than we could have imagined, and we thank you, Robi, for all your hard work on our behalf. We will recommend Robi and kimkim to any friends who are travelling in the future.

Robert helped us with everything and did an amazing job. Our hotels were just as we had hoped and our itinerary was perfect for our needs. All along our travels, Robert would check on us and make sure there were no glitches. We had a rental car which he had arranged, someone to pick us up at the airport, deliver the rental car, pick up the car when we were done and someone to drive us to the airport. There was no detail left undone! We loved Croatia, especially Dubrovnik. Our vacation was wonderful!

Robi was in daily contact with us to insure that we were enjoying ourselves in Croatia. We felt the itinerary which had been presented provided appropriate opportunities to experience each stop during our 8 days in Croatia yet allowing some time to explore on our own. The suggested accommodations were outstanding. We would certainly recommend Kim Kim and Robert to anyone traveling to Croatia.

We recently returned from two weeks in Croatia. Robi helped ensure we had an amazing trip in this stunning country. He offered the perfect combination of culture and outdoor excursions, and when he was unavailable to be our guide, he set us up with Goran who was knowledgeable and funny. Robi was always quick to respond to email and worked with us to ensure we had a fantastic trip within our budget.

My trip to Croatia was wonderful! It is such a beautiful place :) Our itinerary was very well planned and Robi was always very flexible if we wanted to stay longer at a place. Robi was a great guide, he was always checking on us and made sure we were happy. The accommodations we stayed in were clean and well located. I would definitely consider Robi and Kimkim for future trips.

Robi was always available and happy to help with any issues along the way.

I highly highly recommend booking a trip with Robi and his team. They really do care about your wishes, your needs and they do so with a smile.

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!
