Interview with the owner
Can you introduce yourself and FeelCroatia project?
I'm Marino, born and raised in Dubrovnik, Croatia. A proud father of FeelCroatia project. After 10 years in tourism business and more than 20 years of exploring my country, I decided to build something new in our tourism market. Feel Croatia, as the name suggests, provides a special and unique travel service through Croatia, but above all – it is a private, authentic trip that allows you to truly feel Croatia through an almost tangible, temperamental emotion. Our concept is based on authentic contents, local tradition and customs, warm local people and their stories. Each itinerary is designed according to your wishes and interests.
What inspired you to become a travel agent?
As a child who grew up in Dubrovnik, the biggest tourist product in Croatia, I noticed that the tourism offer lacked exactly something like FeelCroatia. A private guide with whom you will get to know all the beauties of Croatia, but also take a peek at the lesser-known, local, authentic ones! That's what makes a trip the most beautiful memory and that's what I want to provide to each of my guests. I wanted to bring something new to the tourist offer.
I want that when my guest comes to Croatia, he feels that he has a friend
with whom he is going to explore his country. This is precisely what is missing from the
offer in Croatia. Connecting clients with Croatia, showing them
emotions, culture, local customs, real local food - that's the right thing!
I am very proud of the team that makes up FeelCroatia. In a few years, we managed to gather a lot of local enthusiasts who think the same way as me and who make this trip special. So we have a local family with a private oyster farm, a local sommelier who knows the soul of every winemaker in the area, a local family that has been looking for truffles with their dogs for decades, an authentic farm where the host makes us homemade lunches every time we come... and much more similar experiences.
As a travel agent, describe your approach to planning an itinerary
I pay a lot of attention to a personalized approach to the client, listen to wishes, interests and try to put together an overall picture of the client even before the experience begins, all in order to create a perfect fit for him and his group. I always first create an idea in my head and present it to the client at a Zoom meeting. During the meeting, we make changes and make it tailored for the client. In a few simple steps, we create a fantastic product completely personalized for the client.
