This experience is not to be missed; led by an extremely knowledgable, engaging and compassionate local guide, Luka, who shared not only his extensive, well researched knowledge but also his humbling personal experience of being a child living through war. He makes a complex series of conflicts easier to understand, he delivers his talk with passion and objectivity. This was by a long way the best thing we did in Zagreb and probably in the whole of our time in Croatia. We wish Luka success in his ambitions to develop further education and learning on these conflicts and their impact.

Le tour était magnifique! Nous avons découvert Zagreb d'un autre côté historique et social. Nous sommes aussi allés jusqu'à la rivière et Bundek parc. Parlons d'Alida! C'est une guide sympatique et pétillante. Elle nous a fait regarder Zagreb de ses yeux, nous a partagé ses points de vue politiques et n'a pas hésité à répondre à nos questions diverses. Nous avons bien rigolé avec elle et nous avons pris de belles photos. Merci Alida!
