This walking tour experience at Zagreb was really informative, friendly and enjoyable. I’m so glad that I was able to join this tour to get to know the beautiful city, Zagreb. Im a solo traveler and came without any background knowledge to the meeting point! Our guide was warm welcoming and it was really nice to walk around with a reliable guide despite of the bad weather! I received a full of tips to explore the city further, restaurant, bars and shops- real local recommendations! Thank you so much for the great time!!!

Our tour with Dorotea was great! It was just my husband and I, so it felt like a private tour :) we were already in the city for a few days and the tour was our last day in Zagreb, so it was interesting to hear the history behind places we walked by a few times already. Of course we also saw places we didn't know we missed. We appreciated Dorotea's enthusiasm and are looking forward to using Dorotea's tips to make our next trip to Zagreb even better!

I really had a great time with Dorotea. She is knowledgeable about the history, very friendly and a good story-teller. I had a short stay in Zagreb and I was able to cover all the major tourists spots through this tour. I would highly recommend :)

The private tour with Dorotea was amazing experience. Dorotea is very cheerful and passionate for storytelling about Zagreb. Love her passion and positive energy. Highly recommend!

Matija our guide was excellent and very pationate. Highly recommended!
