My husband Steve and I visited the Falklands as part of our expedition cruise to Antartica and South Georgia following Shackleton's incredible journey. We were met at the ship by our guide Zoran who was simply incredible. He was friendly, knowledgeable and full of interesting stories. In the short time we had available (because we had to be back on the boat) he really gave us an insight into this beautiful part of the world, as well as his detailed local knowledge about the history of the islands, most especially the Falklands War.
We went to Malvina for lunch and I have honestly never had fresh squid that tasted so good (it's my all time favorite dish)
My only complaint is that we didn't have enough time on the Falklands. We will definitely be back, and if anyone visiting needs a guide that knows his stuff and will go that extra mile for you, than do get in touch with Zoran. I could not recommend him highly enough.
There's so much to see and do especially if you love history, wildlife and want to visit somewhere friendly and safe. People here leave the cars unlocked and their doors open.
It's a very special place, and it was lovely to feel so "at home" when we were so far away.

My family and I had the best day out with Zoran Zuvic, a young enthusiastic Falkland Islander, on Mount Longdon, battle field of the 1982 Falklands war. Zoran could not have been more helpful - and everything he told us was so informative, interesting and well researched. Mount Longdon itself was beautiful and it was so moving to be taken to where both English and Argentines made such sacrifices and understand the background of the battle. I cannot recommend Zoran Zuvic enough to others.

The Mt Longdon Battlefield Tour with Zoran Zuvic was extremely well researched, very informative and deeply moving. Zoran's passion for the Falkland Islands and their history really shone through. His presentation which included reading out medal citations and matching up photographs taken during the 1982 conflict with locations where we stood really brought home the reality of what happened on this remote peak and the sacrifices that were made there. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Had a wonderful tour of the Mt Longdon battlefield. As a teacher he is very articulate and able to describe the events of the battle in vivid detail. He has obviously has done a lot of research this time period. He didn't just share facts and figures but made the battle come alive describing the exploits of individual participants and what they all faced as we walked through the battlefield. He shared photographs and maps that brought history to life. It was an amazing way to spend four hours on the Island. Definitely a tour to do!

We are now back in UK after our cruise to so many interesting places in Argentina, Uruguay and Chile - but the highlight was the time we spent with you in and around Stanley.
Thank you so much for making the reality and understanding of what the invasion was like for you as Falkland Islanders so vivid, and for taking us up Mt Longdon- a truly inspiring and humbling experience to be there where 3 Para achieved and suffered so much.
We hugely appreciated your knowledge, and empathy for such events, and for getting some feeling for the conditions which affected both our own forces as well as the Argentinians. We were pleased to see your contribution to the Thatcher memorial as well as your photo on the display on Ross Road- and found the Museum after you left extremely interesting also.
All in all, an experience we shall look back on with great respect, and with a feeling that we now have at least a inkling of what was such a turbulent, dangerous and seminal time in Falklands history.

I can’t recommend this tour highly enough. Our friendly guide Zoran was exceptionally good at recounting the events of the battle and answering our questions in incredible detail. Having taken veterans around the site he has been able to establish the route of various individual soldiers on the night in question and is able to put you in their footsteps. It’s a powerful, humbling and moving experience. We had good weather for our hike and the views were spectacular, by the end we had a strong grasp of the overall tactical situation as well as being able to see the conflict through the eyes of soldiers on both sides. There are many relics left behind that Zoran showed us which really brought the humanity of the situation home. An unforgettable day.
