About 20 kilometers with about 100 meters of altitude round trip around Zadar. First right along the sea, with a stop in the bar, then it went up a gentle mountain to a great view of Zadar. Downhill back along the new sports facility to the very beautiful coast and the Kolovare beach. Zadar is not really geared towards cyclists yet, so it was perfect for us to be out and about with a guide who knows their way around. Bruno was a very communicative, personable and competent guide and we felt very comfortable with him. Bicycles were in pristine, very good condition! Tour very entertaining and recommended!

My family and I already knew Zadar quite well from many visits over the past few years and have been able to observe the development of the city for over 40 years. Ivana gave us a lot of background information and details in very good German. It was a very entertaining 2 hours after which we can see Zadar with different eyes in many places.

I recommend. I would never have reached so many charming places by myself. it is worth going 3 km uphill. wonderful sight. our route was over 20 km. only take plenty of water or you will burn some calories. there are stops for stories and wonderful views

very interesting tour about the history of Croatia in general and Zadar in particular ! Alaxandar is a top guide!

Great island, nice staff at the bike rental place.
