    What a great experience! I've traveled in person to Croatia, but had never even heard of Sibenik -it was GORGEOUS! The small winding streets were so charming and Anita was such a gracious and enthusiastic guide. Her love of her city and her country was infectious - I look forward to other tours with her.
