Robert Pinčević

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."

Highlights of croatia: zagreb to dubrovnik - 8 days, Croatia - Sep 25 - Oct 3, 2018

Traveler: Sam Austin W. - Local specialist: Robert Pinčević

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!

Robert Pinčević, local specialist, responded to this review:

Traveler: John W. - Local specialist: Robert Pinčević

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.

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 restaurant next to a mussel farm and it was the best meal we had during the trip.

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.
Thanks, Robi and Goran

Split day trip-island, swimming, snorkeling, Croatia - Aug 7 - Aug 10, 2018

Traveler: Jolinda S. - Local specialist: Robert Pinčević

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!

Robert Pinčević, local specialist, responded to this review:

Hi Jolinda,
thank you very much for visiting Croatia with your family! I appreciate your feedback and kind words very much. It was a pleasure to communicate with you as well!

I am very happy to hear you enjoyed the trip and had a good experience.
Hope to see you in Croatia sometime in the future again!

Many regards from Croatia

I absolutely recommend these guys as the go to expert for any trip to Croatia.
