Our guide was such a great host. He keep the evening educational and fun. Though their were several of us at the table he managed to connect with everyone plus the location was perfect. Simon managed to give detailed explanation of the wines where they came from etc as well as more information about Zadar. Would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Zadar

The tour on Sunday at 10am was fantastic! It had no other people and Zadar was almost empty at this early hour in the morning, despite the high season. Our guide, Sime, was not only a professional and a walking history book, but also very personable. Thanks Sime, we see Zadar & Croatia with different eyes now. Any time! Lv Pe

Brilliant tour from start to finish. A beautiful city whose history was brought to life by an engaging and knowledgeable guide.
