  • This tour was amazing!

  • Our tour guide was one of the best we've ever had. I recommend this tour for a catered experience to Zagreb, it's history, and it's culture.

  • This tour was fantastic, the guide was fantastic!!! I think is name was filip?! His local knowledge and enthusiasm made this such a fantastic tour! 10/10.

  • Tomislav was a fabulous guide who gave us both anecdotal and historical information about the city of Zagreb, which made it come alive. He showed us graphically how the city became bifurcated and thereby known as Upper and Lower Zagreb while sharing amusing stories like the chandelier hanging in Zagreb Cathedral. He took us around to parts of the city that we would have never known about on our own like the city playground walls used by graffiti artists to celebrate the accomplishments of the great inventors of Croatia His mastery of English was exceptional and his personality very winning. Once again, our walking tour of Zagreb was fabulous, and so was Tomislav!

  • Would highly recommend this tour. Our tour guide was great, Petra. Very knowledgeable about her city. Was so lovely walking around and seeing such quaint buildings. We would love to go back some day.

  • Monday 22 May 17 will forever be etched in my mind thanks to a wonderful walking tour of Zagreb with our highly knowledgeable and well informed guide, Tomas. He met us at our hotel and walked us around all of upper Zagreb, patiently explaining all important landmarks and Zagreb's fascinating history. As described in what to expect, Tomas stopped by at all the places mentioned and pointed out all the sights and landmarks. With an in depth knowledge of the history of Croatia in general and Zagreb, in particular, it was a treat to have had him as our guide.

  • This was a great introductory tour to Zagreb. My guide Maya was extremely informative, interesting, and helpful. She fit the tour to my interests and the tour was not rushed at all. Definitely do this tour, especially given the great price for a private tour.

  • Our guide Petros kept us fully engaged during the walk with the history,culture and traditions of people of Zagreb. The walk was not a rushed one. We travelled through centuries, felt the heat and hatred of the Wars and enjoyed the mirth of independent Croatians with her commentaries. Excellent tour

  • Amazing tour with great tour guide Tomislav. Very knowledgeable with great humor added through out.
