Our People

THOSE WHO MAKE THE MAGIC

Tomislav Milinović

CEO & Founder

An escapee from the unromantic world of commerce, Tomislav is the lodestar of the company. When a young Bachelor of Business Management started to travel around the world, he never thought that his great passion would eventually become his profession. He put together a team of young well-travelled educated enthusiasts who shared his vision - and the rest is history! Tomislav loves nature, especially the sea - sailing, swimming and exploring Dalmatian islands are his preferred activities. His idea of paradise is sipping famous Pošip wine on Korčula Island while enjoying fresh seafood bites with his family and friends.

Željka Muštra

Director of Sales and Marketing

Željka has been with the company for as long as we can remember and is a real inspiration for our team. Dedicated, fun and outgoing, she enjoys discovering new and special experiences related to local history and traditions. Not only that she chaperons every-day office challenges and maintains good relations with our local providers, but she also travels around the globe promoting the beauties of our region to our world-wide partners. Her ideal vacation is olive picking with her husband and daughter on Šolta Island.

Dolores Jakoliš

Sales Manager

Creative and uplifting, Dolores forged her customer service skills in upscale New York City restaurants. But when she came to Calvados Club, it was like coming home. She finds planning people’s precious leisure time the most rewarding and inspiring job in the world. Classy city girl, she enjoys poetry, ballet dancing, traveling with (or without) her husband and kids and opportunities that a big city offers. That’s why Croatia’s bustling capital of Zagreb is her favorite destination.

Martina Bubalo

Senior Travel Designer

A Culture and Tourism Graduate, Martina has always had her heart set on traveling and organization. Calm and pedantic, but at the same time efficient and creative, she is a role-model to all of us. When she manages to get out of office, she likes to relax with a good book or plan her next travels. Her #1 spot? Paklenica National Park - it’s hard to beat that silence, star gazing and splendid canyon views.

Dražen Radić

Senior Travel Designer

Stuck in a hotel industry for way longer than he had planned, Dražen welcomed the challenges and merits of travel planning. Reliable and hard-working, he is a shining example of diligence that we all look up to. A modern family guy, he likes to wander the streets of his home-town Split, swim by his summer house, do some serious shopping with his wife and spend quality time with his little kids.

Drago Višić

Senior Travel Designer

By profession Drago is an economist, by vocation a travel designer and by character a true sweetheart. Much-loved by colleagues, partners and clients, he takes customer service skills to a whole new level. A history and movie junkie, he likes to relax with a good read or a documentary, in a great company of his wife and son. His top destination is Plitvice Lakes National Park – a green fairy-tale ideal for getting away from it all.

Martina Boduljak

Senior Travel Designer

Our beloved Bo, as we like to call her, brings a smile to our face every time she walks in the office. Her enthusiasm, creativity and imagination make her an irreplaceable member of our team. Visiting film festivals and even participating in some of them is one of Martina’s great passions! Her kind of vacation is traveling with her camera to capture beauties of less explored sceneries hidden on Croatia’s islands such as Lastovo and Mljet.

Branka Milišić

Senior Travel Designer

Our only professor of English and Italian, Branka is far from the image of a starchy college lecturer. Smiling, fun and adventurous, she enjoys tango dancing, hiking and scuba diving. Pursuing her wanderlust, she travelled the world exploring off-the-beaten-track destinations and learning Spanish. She finds great pleasure in introducing her own homeland to its visitors and planning their bespoke trips. Her most-cherished destination is the secluded island of Silba – with no cars and all the beauty of a true Croatian gem.

Igor Gančević

Travel Designer

For our energetic and outdoorsy Igor, a desk job seemed like an odd fit. But after years of sailing the Adriatic, he decided to settle and pass on the fascination for sea adventures to his clients. His experience and dedication made him our boats & charter specialist. In his free time, he loves to get back on the sea and sail around cerulean lagoons of Krknjaši Islands.

Marijana Teklić Tutnjević

Travel Designer

Jolly and creative, Marijana is proud of her geeky side and outside-the-box way of thinking. Always eager and ready to help, she enjoys every minute of the trip planning process for her clients. Peculiarly hating all kinds of sports, her top activity is putting together jigsaw puzzles with her daughter and dolphin-watching on stunning Dugi Otok.

Magdalena Bilić Osmankić

Travel Designer

Magdalena first started as an intern, eager and fresh from Business School. Warm-hearted and hard-working, she quickly became part of the family. A caring mother of two, she enjoys contact sports such as boxing and tae kwon do. In this part of the world, she chooses Sveti Stefan in Montenegro – endless sandy beaches are ideal for the little ones and for ultimate relaxation.

Dea Brizić

Travel Designer

When she first started, freshly graduated from Tourism Management University, Dea brought her crisp energy and unique charm to our team. Not so many people find algebra inspirational, but that is not the case with Dea. In her spare time, she enjoys sharing her knowledge with school kids and making math problems solving more fun. Nothing relaxes her more than roaming around Istrian mediaeval towns of Motovun and Grožnjan with her husband and baby son.

Marin Franić

Director of Operations

Antsy and outdoorsy, witty and versatile, Marin is hard to be caught just sitting at the office. Planning, organizing, researching and negotiating are main items on his daily to-do list. His risky hobbies – such as drifting and partying all night long – were temporarily paused when he became a father. Now he mostly enjoys doing some serious fishing around Prvić Island with his loving family.

Milan Harašić

Operations Manager

Our dearest problem solver, Milan is an IT expert with a wide knowledge of computer technology. On a typical day at the office, he is fixing our tech problems (and calming down us that freak out about them!) as well as assisting with all operations-related projects. Outgoing and relaxed, this sports fan loves snowboarding and kitesurfing, but nothing can beat unwinding with his family on idyllic Brač Island.

Anita Primorac

Sales Assistant

A small-town girl at heart, Anita allowed the romance to take her to the big city. Handling the administration of our Zagreb office and coordinating the details of clients’ trips, she is meticulous, organized and responsible. She loves hiking, biking and gardening, but her all-time favorite activity is lavender picking with the family on her beloved Hvar Island.

Dea Dvornik Ćurin

Travel Designer Assistant

Cheerful, speedy and efficient, Dea is truly someone we can count on in the craziness of a “normal” day at the office. A true hedonist, she enjoys good company, good food and wine and dancing the night away. When not pampering the clients, she enjoys boating around hidden beaches of Vis Island with her family.

Snježana Balić

Travel Designer Assistant

Snježana loves the energy and the excitement of the travel industry so she immediately embraced the dynamics of our work environment. When not out in the nature with her husband and son, she likes to relax over a good cocktail. Because of her appreciation of history, nature and panoramic views, historic and scenic Šibenik is her choice of getaway.

Dajana Sardelić Vuletin

Travel Designer Assistant

A runaway from administration and legal counselling, Dajana spent years traveling around the Adriatic and hosting high-end clients on luxury yachts. After becoming a mom, she decided it was time to hang up the sailor uniform and sail in new waters – of travel planning. She knows there’s no place like home, so she loves her birthplace best – quirky Blato village on Korčula Island.

Tihana Žaja

Travel Designer Assistant

Sweet and optimistic, Tihana joined our team after graduating from Faculty of Economics. Traveling, daydreaming about traveling and helping others in their travel planning is how she spends most of her days. Bonus? She plays for the national rugby team so we can use her as a bodyguard too! To get away from it all, she escapes to Bled Lake with her darling Johnny – a cute French bulldog.

Jelena Matković

Travel Designer Assistant

After years in the charter business, Jelena came to us craving for something new. Like a real family girl, she enjoys cooking, baking (delicious!) cakes and relaxing at home with a good book. But what she loves the most is singing out loud where no one can hear her – around pretty coves of Drvenik Island.

Lucijana Milinović

Director of Administration

Lawyer by education but much more imaginative to be working as one, Lucijana fell in love with traveling right about the time she fell in love with our GM, her husband. Meticulous and organized, she takes care of legal and administrative regulations and all those tricky little “behind the scenes” stuff. Infatuated with Mediterranean lifestyle, her preferred destination is Dubrovnik - a historic, charming and relaxed coastal metropolis.

Željka Tukić

Financial Director

Smart, optimistic and always smiling, Željka is a typical bookworm who swims with ease among numerous accounting, legal and tax regulations – and even finds them inspiring! Almost as much as delicate bookkeeping issues, she enjoys traveling to the most secluded corners of the world. Her favorite pastime is listening to outdoor music on starry summer nights among the ancient monuments of Salona.

Željana Prebeg

Accounting Manager

Our most important person on a pay-day, Željana is our “Minister of Finances”. An adventure-seeker and always on the go, she loves getting wonderfully lost in the nature. Her ideal break from accounting, bureaucracy and paperwork is Bohinj Lake - nothing relaxes more than endless greens & blues of this alpine pearl.

Ariane Maxhuni

Senior Accountant

An accounting junkie, perky Ariane effortlessly juggles invoices, deadlines and numbers – with a big smile on her face! Caring and helpful, she guides us patiently through the complicated area of auditing. When her nose is out of the books, she enjoys clubbing, traveling and beach-bumming. Proud of her Albanian descent, she adores the exotic Kosovo – remote, relaxing and unspoiled.

Anita Markulin

Administrative Support Manager

A movie addict and an art aficionado, Anita is as versatile as one can get. A former interior designer and development engineer, she always wanted to work in travel. Her recipe for curing the wanderlust? Rambling the streets of colorful Lošinj Island – nothing compares to those azure beaches, immense heritage and laid-back atmosphere.

    Thank you, Queensberry and Calvados for all support we received during this unforgettable trip!

    Today we had a little problem when we were travelling from Hvar to Dubrovnik: a Mercedes that was providing a shuttle broke in the road... The driver (…) called Calvados and around 10 - 20 minutes, we were inside another Mercedes going to Dubrovnik! (…). When we arrived at the hotel, there were a massage voucher waiting for us, apologizing for the problem. I need to thank Calvados and say that this kind of problems can happen, and they are so professional, putting the client before everything! (…)

    Thank you, Calvados Club, for the trip of a lifetime! I will be sure to recommend your services to anyone looking to travel to Croatia and the Balkans. Hopefully one day I will have another opportunity to travel with you again myself.

  • Linda and Randy

    California, USA

    It is difficult to say what we enjoyed the most as we found Croatia beautiful, friendly and lots of fun. The food was terrific and the people even better.

    Using the transfer services made everything so smooth and easy. Everyone was on time, the vehicles were top of the line, and we felt very confident. (…) Thank you so much.

  • Rachel

    UK

    Gorgeous scenery of Croatia, the boat trip around the islands was great - we had lunch in a lovely little place on one of the smaller islands - one of the prettiest places I've ever had lunch!

    Our holiday to Croatia was smooth less and effortless. Every detail was taken care of, the hotels were great (most of the UK tour operators could not get us bookings in the hotels that we wanted) the transfers were all on time and very comfortable. Everyone was lovely and really helpful. I will be recommending the Calvados club!

  • Young Couple

    Singapore

    Today is the last day and we're very sad to go! We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Croatia and with Calvados - will definitely be recommending Calvados to our friends and family.

    While all the guides took good care of us, we thought the guides in Slovenia, Rovinj, Split were exceptional as well as the drivers. Also, we loved Monte Mulini and the restaurant recommendations for Zori and Posat.

    Already thinking about our next trip to Croatia - many thanks for such good recommendations and well thought out itinerary!

  • Joan and Stan

    USA

    Planning the trip with you, was always a real pleasure. Your “welcome to the Balkans” phone call to us meant a lot. The trip went perfectly. (…)

    What I am attempting to convey is that we always felt a warm and welcoming personal touch from Calvados, which is why when we decided to go to the Balkans, Calvados was, of course, the people with whom we wanted to deal.

    Thank you for arranging a truly wonderful and memorable trip. What a great impression you have left with us!

  • Nanik

    India

    Thank you for your kind note and thank you for organising THE perfect trip for us. Everything was perfect, the hotels, the transport, the drivers, the guides - everything.

    It sounds like an impossible dream except that it is true. My friends and I kept marvelling at how perfect everything was. The guides were all knowledgeable, friendly and eager to make it a pleasurable experience.

    We are very grateful to you for making it an unforgettable experience. (…)

If they are any indication as to the quality of your services, you will be glad to know I have highly recommended Calvados Club to all the Go Travel offices whenever our valued clients travel to Croatia and beyond. (…)

  • Damla

    UK

    Absolutely amazing service. Highly suited to our needs. Tomo was very very pleasant to deal with as he was very prompt in his answers and right to the point. For our group, who had never been to Croatia, the whole planning seemed like a huge task and with Calvados Club, couldn’t have been easier. Since our holiday, I have recommended Calvados Club to 4-5 friends of mine and I’ll surely be one of the permanent ambassadors of Calvados Club going forward.

  • Maripat

    USA

    It’s our last night in Croatia and I’m starting to pack up (while drinking a glass of wine from a bottle we purchased from our excursion today). I’m not even sure where to start. This truly, has been the best vacation I’ve ever had. I tend to be such a “doer” in my day to day life and to sit back and know that someone else has taken charge has been amazingly relaxing, yet the most educational and pleasant trip ever. (…) There wasn’t one thing I would change.

  • Stuart

    Boston - USA

    Service: From the moment of our first contact, the service that we received was friendly, timely, and well informed. (…)
