We really had lots of fun and the food we tasted was very diverse! Kristina is a super friendly and funny guide who gave us a personal tour of the local foods and shared lots of insight into the history and Croatian culture, we felt very welcomed by her. She kept in mind your personal food preferences and/or allergies, etc. as well. Furthermore, there really is NO need to have breakfast beforehand! We started off with a breakfast type of food and all the portions were quite large, so come with an empty stomach if possible. It is also a good idea to bring a small bag, some "samples" could be saved for later.

Vid was an extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. We were most impressed that he even researched our country facts, to compare against his local facts… very cool. We ate so much we never ate again for the rest of the day. DON’T have breakfast beforehand. A culinary tour and time well spent in Zagreb, we also got many tips on what to do for the rest of our trip…

Kristina was a fabulous guide and was very knowledgeable about the food and the history of Zagreb and Croatia. She is clearly very passionate about her job and her country. The food we tried was delicious and if you are going to do this tour, definitely skip breakfast beforehand!

Market visit, sauerkraut experience, Cevabcici, sweet Stuckli, beer and schnapps. Only coffee and wine was missing. It was a very enjoyable and interesting tour with delicious food. Our lively & local guide, Kristina, made the 4 hours a great experience.

Dino was great! Very informative and helpful. The 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed the evening…wonderful selection of traditional foods, wines, history and informative stories.
