My husband and I have taken many city walking tours in Europe and the Americas, and we absolutely found this to be THE BEST. Goran, our guide, was incredibly knowledgeable. He gave a brief history of Croatia that was politically balanced, informative, and compelling. This continued throughout the 2.5+ hour tour, where he told us much about Zagreb and Croatia's political and cultural background, folding in various small facts and personal insights. He also has a fantastic personality, answering questions from profound to mundane concisely and with a sincere interest that we grasp the point. The tour itself was structured very well, with a relaxed pace that allowed for questions and discussion and a duration that covered a lot of the city, so I would expect that experiences with other tour guides could also be solid. That said, it was clear that our stellar experience was largely due to Goran's knowledge and personality. Thanks so much!
