Zagreb: Taste Zagreb Food Tour

1. Zagreb: Taste Zagreb Food Tour

In this tour you will visit the central spots in Zagreb, expand your knowledge about the city's history and traditions, try different local dishes, and make unforgettable memories with other happy guests. The tour starts on the main city square where you will meet your guide, before heading to the central green market. At the market, you will taste fresh, local ingredients and dishes such as simple a homemade peasant dish, "sir i vrhnje" (cottage cheese), a crusty puffed pastry with fillings ("burek"), and some of the local fish and meat dishes ("srdele i ćevapi"). While in Zagreb, you have to try the unusual authentic dessert, which is best when it's served warm ("štrukli"). As well as this, you will also see how chocolate tastes in Zagreb, since the locals have their own chocolate factory. To provide a good image of what is traditional in Croatia, this tour also includes some of the delicious foods from other Croatian regions such as Dalmatian "pršut" and Istrian olives. To remember the complicated names of the local dishes, you will receive the materials that should make it easy for you to go back to the locations you liked, and try out the additional food recommended by your guide.

Our tour was with Kristina, there were only two of us with our guide and it was really great. The food and the variety was really great and unique. We would book the tour again and again. Also to discover some places that are not immediately obvious. We recommend that you do not eat breakfast or the like beforehand! It's a lot, tasty, diverse.

Kristina is a superstar and tour was fabulous. Not much walking, lots of great conversation about all things Croatian and superb quality of food and wonderful variety. This was the best tour I have ever taken and I know that you'll think its top quality. Terry, USA

Christina was an excellent guide. Tried all types of food from all over Croatia. Brought to really nice local places that I wouldn’t otherwise know about. You get a lot of food so make sure you don’t eat too much beforehand

We tasted traditional foods, explored the local markets, saw sites that we would have missed, and learned some history. Kristina was an awesome guide, made us feel at home and gave us suggestions for dinner that night.
