What people are saying about Stone Gate, Zagreb

absolutely fantastic way to see the city 🙂🙂 Ned was a brilliant guide and although it was just me on the tour it didn't seem to phase him. He explained the history of the city really well, was really funny and had excellent suggestions for restaurants and things to do after the tour was over. made sure I knew where I was and how to get to the places I wanted to see before ending the tour. absolutely cannot recommend him highly enough. lovely guy, great city, great tour.

Our Guide Adam, who is also the owner was excellent in all aspects. His interaction with us, knowledge about the city, humour, friendliness and helpful nature is just a few things to speak positive about. he even treated us to a coffee among the locals at a local coffee shop. it enhanced the feel and vibe of the tour. I would recommend this to anybody who has a short time in zagreb and wants to know the highlights of the city. Thank you.
