Our walking city tour with Lutzia was excellent, making it worth to go out rain and all. She was gracious and very knowledgeable and provided a lot of history and information that made us fall in love with Zagreb and Croatia. We highly recommend this tour!

My first time in traveling to Europe. Must see the City Tour with a guide so you’ll understand the history of the old town. Then dine in there and shop or walk around the Old Town agsin.

The tour was amazing! My tour guide was really knowledgeable and always picked the perfect spot to talk to us and for us to take pictures. I’d highly recommend this tour!

Wonderful tour! The guide did a wonderful job showing us around Zagreb and explaining the history of Croatia.

Lucie wist erg veel te vertellen. Fijne tips! Een aanrader.
