Sensational tour with Sandra. Great food and learned a lot about Croatian culture and Zadar. This tour is recommended for everyone at the beginning of their holiday. we didn't know what great things were hidden in the narrow streets.

The tour was interesting and our tourguide radiated expertise and excitement for the subject. It was a pleasure listening as our tourguide explained city's various history from ancient Rome through Veteniese empire to modern day.

Aangename gids die ons naar adresjes bracht die we anders zeker nooit hadden gevonden. Een aanrader als je lokale lekkernijen wilt ontdekken.
