We booked the tour to get to know the city a bit at the beginning of our trip. We were not disappointed. There were only two of us so we had our guide all to ourselves. Our luck. Tanya was really great. And answered all of our questions. Even if we don't speak English very well, we were able to follow Tanja's explanations very well. Nice entertaining tour that brought us a little closer to Zadar. At the end, Tanja gave us a few good tips for restaurants and cafes and other excursions. Really great. The weather had been really bad, but Tanja was all the better for it. We can only recommend it.

Tanja is amazing! His English is very good. We were lucky to be alone to make the visit. This visit was superb and it allowed us to understand the history of Zadar but also of the country. History with a capital H because this city still bears the traces of the various wars and in particular the bombings. We would never have seen Zadar from this perspective without this visit and without Tanja. Thanks to Tanja for also sharing HIS story with us… it was very moving. (Tanja if you see this comment we hope to see you again one day to make you discover France and its history with great pleasure ☺️)

The tour guild was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I would highly recommend for anyone looking to learn more about zadars history. Even with the bad weather it was an enjoyable and informative tour.
