What people are saying about Zagreb

OMG this was a VERY good tour. With all that is going on in the world right now (COVID) people not traveling as much... It was just my husband (who have not gotten on a bike in over 20yrs) and I. You would think that with just the two of us and he would have shorten or made the tour short. He treated us well. Excellent tour. I would recommend hands down!!

Kristina was a fabulous guide and was very knowledgeable about the food and the history of Zagreb and Croatia. She is clearly very passionate about her job and her country. The food we tried was delicious and if you are going to do this tour, definitely skip breakfast beforehand!

Market visit, sauerkraut experience, Cevabcici, sweet Stuckli, beer and schnapps. Only coffee and wine was missing. It was a very enjoyable and interesting tour with delicious food. Our lively & local guide, Kristina, made the 4 hours a great experience.

A super 3 hour experience. Robert our guide was full of fun filled facts. He tailored the trip to suit all abilities, was considerate and made us feel like we knew Zagreb once we had completed the tour. Highly recommend anyone taking this tour.
