Karmela’s tour was above and beyond just a typical food tour. She constructed the tour as if it was a menu with each stop being a new course (i.e. bakery to taste bread, meat and cheese in the market, coffee break, strukli..etc). In between each food stop there is ample time and walking to enjoy seeing major sights and historical areas of Zagreb. The breaks in between each stop also give you enough time to digest the previous food so you're hungry by the next stop! If you only have 1 day in Zagreb this is the perfect way to spend a full day tasting local cuisine and learning about the history of the city. We opted for the bonus location meeting in the bakery which started at 8 am and all in the tour lasted about 6 hours. We tasted many of the famous continental Croatian foods and wines and had great conversations with many of the local vendors we met along the way. A highlight for us was the strukli and the wine visit to Bornstein. All around it was a great day and I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in learning about the culture of Croatia and Zagreb through food.

My husband and I visited Zagreb for the Christmas market and decided to book a food tour with Karmela to make sure we didn't miss anything special. It was a great decision because her Advent Food Tour was the highlight of our visit. We walked around the different markets in Zagreb, trying food from different regions of Croatia. Not only did we find the best food (and mulled wine!) stalls the Christmas market had to offer, but we also got a great insight into Croatian culture and their Christmas traditions. Karmela was great company and passionate about good food. She made some great suggestions for us to visit for the rest of our time in Zagreb. If you visit Zagreb for the Christmas market, I'd strongly recommend getting the most out of your visit by booking a tour with Karmela. Tip - arrive hungry to this tour because you will leave very full! :)

What a great way to see Zagreb! We did not go hungry.We learned so very much. And we saw all the lovely sights that tourists come to see. We began our tour early to see the bakery which was so interesting! Never had we seen anything like it. Glad we did that. The streets were quiet and calm at that time in the morning. Quite a contrast to the rest of the day. And then we proceeded to tick off all the tasty treats and experiences Karmela has planned. Every stop did not disappoint it only got better! We were four friends traveling on for an additional 2 weeks in Croatia. We could not stop talking about our experience with Karmela in Zagreb. We will never forget the experience. Karmela is a wonderful resource for those that would like to connect and get to know more about the wonderful culture waiting here in Zagreb!

Karmela's Food Tour was a wonderful way for me to absorb the culture of Croatia through a tasting tour in the Dolmac Market and several boutique food places followed by a scrumptious lunch of melt in your mouth 'Strukli' at a hidden garden cafe. Karmela's tour was a great way for me to begin my exploration of Croatia. she followed up with a detailed list of wines and places we'd been and a link to her website for the recipes. Super! Great! for a Foodie like me.
