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 area. We customize trips that can be made of 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. We love doing honeymoons, which we do more and more, providing foodie experiences, doing wine tours and beer tours! 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."

Recent trip reviews for Robert
Robi is Awesome! · Croatia - Oct 2 - Oct 10, 2021
Robi was an incredible guide from start to finish. He helped manage multiple trips with multiple groups of people, suggested the best activities based on our interests, and was so kind and considerate throughout the trip. Even though we were travelling off-season, he worked with wineries and restaurants to open experiences just for us. One of my favorite meals was going to a local family's house for a traditional lunch. The food was incredible (the best chicken I've ever had) and our hosts... read more
Croatia Oct. 2021 · Croatia - Oct 2 - Oct 10, 2021
Our trip to Croatia was AMAZING! Robi our guide was so knowledgeable and helped us to experience places that we would have never known existed without him. I have never had a guide before, now I don't want to ever travel without one! It is a stress free way to travel. Thank you Robi for making our trip so memorable and fun!

I can't say enough great things about Robi and the experience/memories he provided during our "girls' trip" to Croatia! My niece handled the pre-trip planning directly with Robi and we never worried about anything from the time he picked us up at the airport until when he returned us a week later:). Robi is so personable, knowledgeable and flexible and he definitely went above and beyond to add/modify our trip based on interests, weather and opportunities. I know we experienced Croatia so... read more
Amazing experience ! · Croatia - Oct 1 - Oct 15, 2021
Robi helped plan our 15 day honeymoon in Croatia. He really is the package deal. His great personality, genuine nature, and knowledge of the area is more than we could have asked for during our trip. We really enjoyed every day in Croatia for many different reasons. Robi made everything a breeze from car rentals, planned day trips, tours, and having the security that he is only one phone call away if anything popped up during our trip. If you are looking for a great experience and wonderful person Robi is your guy! You won't be disappointed. He really made our experience special.

Robi was a GREAT guide! Very informative, helpful and available for our trip before and during. We could not have experienced all Croatia has to offer without him!
6 days of adventure, natural beauty and relaxation on the Dalmatian Coast! · Croatia - Sep 18 - Sep 23, 2021
Robi and his team were outstanding throughout the entire process. We spent beautiful days on the Dalmatian coast moving from Split to Dubrovnik, with a new stop each day.
From the planning phase, Robi helped us understand how to pace the trip, what activities to plan for each stop, and most importantly what to book vs. wait for in order to ensure the weather would cooperate. We were able to spend a day touring the islands, visiting the blue cave, paddleboarding, and swimming in the... read more
Croatia with Robi was FABULOUS!!! · Croatia - Sep 15 - Sep 21, 2021
We had Robi from KimKim plan our week in Croatia.
He reserved our car, hotels, guides and itinerary.
Our itinerary was perfectly custom-designed. Everything went smoothly and wasn’t s immensely enjoyable. The itinerary took us to Trogir, Split, Ston, Korcula, and Dubrovnik. We chose 4* hotels & they were very very nice and in perfect locations. The guides were extremely knowledgeable! We had Pero in Split. He was interesting and personable! Robi took us on an unexpected side trip to... read more

Robi did a fantastic job of scheduling our trip. He incorporated every detail that we wanted and would go back and forth with us when we had small changes to the trip. We even decided halfway in our trip to take a boat for day, and Robi took us around to several islands and took us to a local restaurant. He was great at showing us places that we would never have seen without him.
Robi, Mario and Pero all had immense knowledge of their country, and they were very knowledgeable both on the... read more

Robi and team were wonderful! They were very knowledgeable, they made us feel safe, comfortable and they were always ready to help. They even made sure our hotel rooms were ready before we even got there. They were passionate about Croatia and were always available to assist whenever we needed them. They made our trip just fantastic and could not have asked for a better team to help us navigate Croatia for the first time. If I could hire them for every country I want to visit I would.
One thing to note is all the hotel accommodations they chose were just outstanding!!
Best trip experience in Croatia · Croatia - Aug 1 - Aug 14, 2021
Thanks Robi and his colleague Bruno to make our trip in Croatia a such wonderful experience! Not only we visited all the places that we wished for, they took extra effort to take us to the places that we didn't know before but they were definitely worth to visit, such as Trogir, Sibenik, some small villages in Istria region. I like the arrangement to have guide tour at each place then have some free time to explore, we learned so much history and interesting stories about those places. I also... read more
The best of both self guided and guided with Robi · Croatia - Jul 31 - Aug 13, 2021
We asked Robi for a half guided half self guided trip of Croatia. He designed a program with us in mind that hit all the spots. I am good in many languages mostly Germanic but I have no basis of understanding of Croatian so for me a disadvantage. Robi got us immediately. We don't love crowds and love nature at its finest. At one time we thought we might do a boat tour of the islands with a small boat tour. Then we thought a gain. Who does those kind of trips? Older folks with not... read more

We recently visited Croatia on short notice and only had about 2 weeks to plan the entire trip. We wanted to see alot of the country and we have done self driving tours in the past, so thought that would be a good way to experience alot. After searching google for " self drive tours in Croatia", I landed on the kimkim site, which put me in touch with one of their parners in Croatia, Robi @ soulofcroatia.com. I can't say enough nice thing about this young man. He was extreamly helpful in... read more
Trip to Zagreb and Split · Croatia - May 14 - May 19, 2021
Robi was incredible from start to finish. I decided to go by myself to Croatia last second and on a budget. I normally do not do guides or tours but since I was trying to have an "aggressive" schedule, I decided to reach out. Robi was very responsive and presented different options to try to fit all of my crazy requests to see everything in such a short amount of time. I was extremely happy to have him as a guide as it made it seem like I was traveling with an old friend and he was flexible... read more
Amazing Trip to Croatia! · Croatia - Oct 25 - Nov 4, 2019
Our trip to Croatia this past fall was amazing! Our guide was extremely helpful with giving us places to see that really fit our personalities! He really was there for us whenever we needed him. The sites and guesthouses we stayed at along the way were very nice...and the hosts were extremely welcoming. Such an amazing and beautiful country to explore...

Robert did a wonderful job listening to our requests and matching us up with accommodations and a guide that fit perfectly. He went over and above in helping us out when we had a little snafu with transportation.
Goran was a knowledgeable, fun and interesting guide. He was able to adjust plans easily based on weather and our schedule.
We hope to spend more time in Croatia and would use both ROBERT and Goran again.
60th birthday trip for one special man named Craig · Croatia - Aug 31 - Sep 14, 2019
My wife and I spent 16 days in Croatia (a country we had never been to) celebrating my 60th birthday. I stumbled across Kimkim and decided to give it a try. This was the best decision we could have made. The booking and payment process was painless and then while on the trip, the checking in and checking out at hotels was completely simple and easy.
But the best thing Kimkim did was connect us to the local Croatian travel specialist Robi. He was a dream to work with. He met us in person... read more
Dalmatian Coast Self-Drive Tour - 12 Days · Croatia - Sep 3 - Sep 10, 2019
I can’t say enough good things about our recent trip to Croatia with the help from Robi at Kimkim.
I’m afraid it was a bit like the movie “If it’s Tuesday it must be Belgium”, but that was only due to our limited time of 8 days. Everything was flawless, I’ve been on previous trips with an escort guide, but Kimkim’s remote guide system was better than having one present. Our day with Gabor on the Peljesac peninsula stopping at wineries on our way to Ston, was a highlight!
Next time we promise to stay longer and we wouldn’t hesitate in using Kimkim again.
Croatia · Croatia - Sep 8 - Sep 15, 2019
We were initially reluctant to reach out to a travel agent to help with this trip (as we never have) but work and life got in the way and we needed local assistance navigating hotels and transportation. We knew from the start, we wanted to see as much of Croatia as possible in a week and did not want to only rely on a car or the ferry service, which complicated things. From the start, Robi was very responsive and patient in providing feedback on various itineraries, as we reached out prior... read more
Dalmatian Coast Self-Drive Tour - 12 Days · Croatia - Sep 3 - Sep 10, 2019
Where do we start!
We were feeling overwhelmed. We only had 8 days and wanted to see as much as possible. My brother contacted Kimkim and Robert got back to him immediately. Between them they crafted a trip that was one of our best ever. Don gave Robert our parameters and he flew with it, choosing the very best accommodations, organising a car rental, planning all of our transfers.........
it worked like a charm, and it was all basically remote control, every evening or the day of, we got... read more

We had a fantastic trip to Croatia. I wish we were there right now. Thank you Robi for planning all the places we wanted to go and adding more places that we didn’t even know we wanted to visit. We enjoyed everywhere we went. Robi helped us quickly plan two days of boating. We loved boating around Hvar and around Dubrovnik! The captains knew really neat places to swim, snorkel, and eat. Robi also found us and delivered all the tickets we needed. I don’t know if we had a favorite place, but... read more

We had a wonderful trip to Croatia. Robi did a great job of showing us the real Croatia. It was beautiful from the north to the south. We had seven people ranging in age from 10 to 68, and Robi was flexible and accommodating, which allowed us to better enjoy the experience.
Best of the Dalmatian Coast - 8 Days · Croatia - Jun 5 - Jun 15, 2019
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.

Croatia is a beautiful country of rocky mountains, clear waters and blue lakes. It was our first time visiting Croatia and we really enjoyed our time spent exploring the coast between Dubrovnik and Split.
Booking through KimKim was an easy platform. Robi and his team put together an itinerary that was a perfect way to explore the Croatian coast, including a good mix of islands and historical towns. We were never too busy and had time to explore on our own.

Dalmatian Coast Self-Drive Tour - 12 Days · Croatia - Jun 4 - Jun 13, 2019
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.

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!
Highlights of Croatia: Zagreb to Dubrovnik - 8 Days · Croatia - Sep 25 - Oct 3, 2018
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.
Highlights of Croatia: Zagreb to Dubrovnik - 8 Days · Croatia - Sep 21 - Sep 21, 2018
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.
Best of the Dalmatian Coast - 8 Days · Croatia - Sep 5 - Sep 11, 2018
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.
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.

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!
