Organized by

Ante

Ante was born on Hvar and like so many Croatians, learned about the sea, olives, Croatian culture and history from a young age. At university, Ante specialized in economics and destination management. After graduating, he began working in the travel industry from the bottom up - first as busboy, dishwasher and then a waiter at some of the best Hvar restaurants learning all about service, quality and destination management at the best hotels on the island. When he decided to start his own firm, Ante combined his personal life-long experiences on Hvar with family friends who are local winemakers, boat owners, olive growers, guides, fishermen, museum custodians, charismatic writers and university professors. In the past five years, Ante has worked with more than one hundred large groups and hundreds of individual, private travellers. “To me, it doesn’t matter if you are a corporate executive or a family on holiday - our goal is that each and every client receives “maximum satisfaction” or we haven’t done our job”.
