We booked the tour to get to know the city a bit at the beginning of our trip. We were not disappointed. There were only two of us so we had our guide all to ourselves. Our luck. Tanya was really great. And answered all of our questions. Even if we don't speak English very well, we were able to follow Tanja's explanations very well. Nice entertaining tour that brought us a little closer to Zadar. At the end, Tanja gave us a few good tips for restaurants and cafes and other excursions. Really great. The weather had been really bad, but Tanja was all the better for it. We can only recommend it.

As expected! Guide speaks great German. We had a dog with us. Wasn't a problem at all. The guide waited patiently when we gave him something to drink or similar. She was also able to answer all questions about Croatia wonderfully. For example why one goes through Bosnia-H. have to drive to get to Dubrovnik... Really worth it! Zadar is really a great city!

Our spanish guide Tanja Zilic was perfect! Her spanish is excellent, she provided us great explanations about the city and she made herself available even the days after to share many useful tips about places to visit, wonderful beaches and the best ice cream in town <3
