This experience is not to be missed; led by an extremely knowledgable, engaging and compassionate local guide, Luka, who shared not only his extensive, well researched knowledge but also his humbling personal experience of being a child living through war. He makes a complex series of conflicts easier to understand, he delivers his talk with passion and objectivity. This was by a long way the best thing we did in Zagreb and probably in the whole of our time in Croatia. We wish Luka success in his ambitions to develop further education and learning on these conflicts and their impact.

This tour surpassed our expectations in every way. Luca not only gives educated and well-spoken information, he also shares is personal experience and thoughts on the theme and the world. He is great and his project is worth your time, money and support. Don’t miss it. Jess and Ellis from Lisbon

This was one of the best and most important tours I have taken. Lucca designed and gives a tour that opens your eyes to the history of Croatia and the recent wars by showing you as well as telling you what it was like for him and his family. Most of us never lived through a war, and I came away with a deeper understanding and thought Lucca was super informative and a great guide, who kept my attention throughout. Don't miss this tour! It will bring Zagreb to life for you with a deeper understanding. A real 5 star tour!
