A great introduction to Zagreb, both to spot the interesting locations to find our way around but also to get a good understanding of the Croatian history. Our guide Lucy is very knowledgeable and gave us a very inspiring walk around the city centre, historic places and helped with recommendations for the remaining days of our stay in Zagreb. The tour is highly recommended. And will leave you with a very good understanding of not only the history of Zagreb and Croatia, but also give you the opportunity to take great photos of the beautiful city

Excellent guided tour, with a lot of insight in history, city development and buildings. Our guide, Lucija, is very knowledgeable and you can tell, she loves to share her knowledge, she loves her city and her country. We had sufficient time to ask questions and discuss, get a coffee - and to take pictures. Walking distances were convenient. This tour gave me a new way to see this city. I recommend it to everyone as a start to their Zagreb experience.

Absolutely the best tour of a beautiful city. Lucy was our tour guide and anything she may not have known about Zagreb wasn’t worth knowing. Lovely small friendly group of people from other countries.. it was nice to hear their stories as well. Thoroughly recommend this to you
