2. Zadar: Guided City Walking Tour & Zadar Cathedral View Point

Meet us on the Five Wells Square, where you start your journey through the past and present of Zadar. The first stop is the historical entrance to Zadar - the 16th-Century Land Gate with a great look at the UNESCO World Heritage Site fortification system. The next stop is the St. Simeon's Church after which we will stroll down the main street in town - Kalelarga. The People's Square awaits with its historic buildings including the Town Guard and the Town Lodge. We will stop to taste the perfect combination - famous Zadar cherry liqueur Maraskino and world-renown cheese from the island of Pag. We will continue to the Roman Forum covered with archeological remains. In the center is the iconic rotunda - the St. Donatus Church. The highest building in both the Forum and the whole of Zadar is the Bell Tower of St. Anastasia's Cathedral. We will climb the 183 steps to be rewarded with the best view of Zadar! The tour continues with the world's unique Sea Organ played by the waves. Sit down, relax and listen to the music of nature and see why the great Alfred Hitchcock said: "Zadar has the most beautiful sunset in the world, more beautiful than the one in Key West, in Florida, applauded at every evening."

We enjoyed this tour with Sime (Simon). We booked this tour expecting to be part of a small group but we were actually a private tour. Sime was very warm and although he speaks quickly, he is easily understood and his presentation was excellent.

Sime was an excellent guide! Extremely knowledgeable and proud of his hometown he extended the length of the tour at no cost to ensure that the group got the best experience of Zadar. Couldn’t recommend him highly enough!

Due to a ferry cancellation we ended up with a few hours to kill in Zadar. This tour was an excellent introduction to old town Zadar, and Marko was exceptional as a guide.

A must-do tour when you visit Zadar. We were taken through many stages of history on the walk around and learned the most important locations to visit.

Really interesting tour. The guide was very knowledge about Croatian history and seemed to enjoy teaching others about it. Would recommend
