Zagreb is now one of our favorite cities.
We were in Zagreb as the last stop on our tour of the Balkans. There were 4 of us, and we had learned so much on our trip that we thought this tour might be more of the same. We were wrong. Our guide was Aleksandar, and he was exceptional. We met him in a park that was part of the Green Horseshoe. We did a little general talking about things around Zagreb, like the fact that Zagreb holds the current honor for the best Christmas market in Europe. Aleksandar explained the history of his city, and then we walked to the Ban Josip Jelacic Square to begin our walk through the old town area. From the square we walked up the street toward the Catholic Cathedral of the Assumption. From there we made several stops. In the Dolan Market area, we saw beautiful vegetables, most notably those gorgeous red peppers, paprikas, that were part of every meal. We also went into the fish market. We took the funicular up a level to the upper walls where we saw Lotrscak Tower, one of the old city watch towers. Even higher up we saw St. Mark’s Church (built in the 19th century) with its multicolored tile roof. On that level we saw buildings topped with interesting-looking spiked balls that were designed to be witch catchers so that the hags could not enter the buildings. On the way down we walked through the World War II tunnel used as a bomb shelter during that war and later during the Homeland War. It has a capacity for 5000 people. Our trip down led us back to the square. Before leaving us, Aleksandar accommodated us by walking us to a mall area with a grocery store and ATMs. Aleksandar had been a great guide who gave us a lasting impression of his ancient and modern city. We had arrived expecting Zagreb to simply be a place to fly home from. We left quite sure that it was a place we would love to come back to for a longer stay.

Getting to see Zagreb with Alex was such a treat! You get all the things you expect (history, local recs for food and souvenirs, etc) but Alex also curates the experience to your taste and speed. Beer generous with his knowledge of not only Zagreb but also the other areas of Croatia we were visiting. Super helpful, super friendly. Couldn't ask for a better host!

Do this tour first!
This was a great intro tour to Zagreb! We felt like we needed a tour to see what Zagreb was all about and Alex blew us away with his knowledge. He knows so much about the history and each place. We throughly enjoyed our tour and went to all the hidden gem places he told us about. All have been amazing. He was also very polite and easy to talk! We would book another tour with Alex again.

Perfect from beginning to end
Alex was great from beginning to end. We booked this tour a while ago & he was really helpful in stringing together a transport between Slovenia & Croatia with suggestions of stops along the way including this waking tour. All the tours were fantastic & we had personal attention that made everything smooth & easy. He was very accessible and was immediately available any time I had a question or had to make an adjustment. I would highly recommend him & will use him again if we’re in the neighborhood!

Great Walking Tour!
Sep 2021 • Couples
While visiting Zagreb we wanted to take a walking tour to learn more about the history and culture. Aleksandar was a fantastic guide. He took us around several locations, shared with us the rich history of the country and capitol, and recommended restaurants/cuisine. He even gave us a cute local charm and shared with us the background and local tradition. Thanks, Aleksandar!

Perfect way to learn about the history of the area.
Aleksandar was our tour guide. He was professional, friendly and very knowledgeable. He told us the history of Croatia and Zagreb. If the walls of the bomb shelter could talk… Although it rained some during our tour (he offered us his spare umbrella), it did not dampen the tour. He pointed out other sites to see (not part of the tour) and food to try after our tour. He was very helpful plus sent us WhatsApp messages with information as requested. Thanks for a great tour.

Best City tour EVER
This was easily the best city tour I’ve ever had! I thought I was out of luck as it was starting to rain, but I couldn’t have been luckier having come across this tour and especially Luka! 2 hours went by in the blink of an eye with him, he is super knowledgeable, friendly, easy-going with a great sense of humor! This is not just some monologue tour where the guide goes through his speech and it’s over - it felt really like I was hanging out with a friend while learning lots and lots of interesting details about history, food, culture etc. Thank you Luka and Zagreb - You stole my heart! ❤️

Fabulous Introduction to Croatia

Aleksandar was our guide with deep knowledge for the history of his city and country. We were only in Zagreb for 1 1/2 days and Aleksander provided personalized recommendations for restaurants and activities that fit our timeline and interests. He also provided recommendations for other cities we would be visiting. Fabulous whirlwind tour!
