You will meet your friendly guide in the city center. At the beginning of the tour you will pass by the cathedral, the highest religious building in the city and perhaps the most recognizable of all. After a thorough tour of the Cathedral interior, proceed by visiting the lively open market of Dolac. Your guide will provide you with some insight about the local cuisine as all the fresh or homemade ingredients are being sold on this market every day, so don't hesitate to ask for tips what would be the best gift for your loved ones back home.
Next stop is Tkalčićeva Street, the busiest street of the city center and the focal point of its nightlife. This narrow street today is filled with trendy bars, clubs and restaurants, but in the past in its place there was a creek, dividing the twin cities of Kaptol and Gradec, Zagreb's predecessors.
The walking tour then takes you through the Blood Stained Bridge, Radićeva street and the Stone Gate as you climb your way up to the Upper Town - Gradec. Among the points of interest located there are the Jesuit baroque church of St Catherine, St Mark’s Church with its distinctive colorful roof, the seats of Croatian Parliament and Government, the City Hall and various museums.
After that, your next stop is the Lotrščak Tower, known for its cannon which goes off at noon every day to mark the exact time. This is also a great spot for a panoramic view of Zagreb and your next selfie. From there take a stroll on the beautiful Strossmayer promenade, the favorite location of the locals for romantic walks and you will take a pleasant ride on the Zagreb funicular, known for being the shortest one in the world (only 66m long) towards the Lower Town.
The last stops on the Zagreb private tour are the Flower Square and the Jelačić Square, named after ban Josip Jelačić, the most prominent figure of Croatia's history. You tour will end with some more interesting stories and curious facts from your insightful guide.

Had a wonderful tour with Vanka "V".
She met us on time and kept tour at great pace. Allotted time for pictures. She gave us not only information about the city but also a great feel for the culture. Would highly suggest this tour.
Completely delightful! We were early and phoned our 5 star guide, Adam. He joined us within 10 minutes and off we went. Well versed in history and local lore ! Very engaging young man.
He pointed out a fun little spot for a very local lunch.
Great tour guide. He spoke Portuguese, so it was easier to connect, and showed me all around. Also gave me some tips where to eat and to drink.
Excellent tour. We learned a lot about the city with many, many fun facts we would have never known about the places and things we saw. Very friendly guide, spoke excellent English. It felt like having a local friend showing you his favorite places around the city.
