Full description
In this tour you will visit the central spots in Zagreb, expand your knowledge about the city's history and traditions, try different local dishes, and make unforgettable memories with other happy guests. The tour starts on the main city square where you will meet your guide, before heading to the central green market. At the market, you will taste fresh, local ingredients and dishes such as simple a homemade peasant dish, "sir i vrhnje" (cottage cheese), a crusty puffed pastry with fillings ("burek"), and some of the local fish and meat dishes ("srdele i ćevapi"). While in Zagreb, you have to try the unusual authentic dessert, which is best when it's served warm ("štrukli"). As well as this, you will also see how chocolate tastes in Zagreb, since the locals have their own chocolate factory. To provide a good image of what is traditional in Croatia, this tour also includes some of the delicious foods from other Croatian regions such as Dalmatian "pršut" and Istrian olives. To remember the complicated names of the local dishes, you will receive the materials that should make it easy for you to go back to the locations you liked, and try out the additional food recommended by your guide.

A must-do in Zagreb

Kristina was an amazing tour guide. Not only did we eat a lot of delicious food from around the region, she explained the history of Zagreb. Walking the markets with her provided a wonderful view of the local culture and an interesting look at where the food is sourced for many of the restaurants. It was easily the best thing we did in Zagreb! My advice, skip breakfast. You will not leave hungry! Thanks again for a memorable day Kristina.

Great guide (Eva), and nice itinerary. You really get to tase and understand typical local cuisine. Thanks to our guide we also learned a lot about Zagreb and Croatia, both old and recent history. Recommend to do this tour as you arrive to Zagreb, as you get a lot of pointers what to do and see in town.

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour.

There was only my husband and I on the tour so we had a very personalised tour. Vid our guide was considerate, knowledgeable, thoughtful and great fun. As I am gluten intolerant he had organised with the different traders to supply gluten free where possible. He had also purchased a loaf of g/free bread for me to have if needed. Very good value for the 4 1/2 hours we were taken around markets etc. and given all the information we needed regarding the different foods produced in the country. We had a great day with lots of new tasty foods to try.
