Full description
In this tour you will visit the central spots in Zagreb, expand your knowledge about the city's history and traditions, try different local dishes, and make unforgettable memories with other happy guests. The tour starts on the main city square where you will meet your guide, before heading to the central green market. At the market, you will taste fresh, local ingredients and dishes such as simple a homemade peasant dish, "sir i vrhnje" (cottage cheese), a crusty puffed pastry with fillings ("burek"), and some of the local fish and meat dishes ("srdele i ćevapi"). While in Zagreb, you have to try the unusual authentic dessert, which is best when it's served warm ("štrukli"). As well as this, you will also see how chocolate tastes in Zagreb, since the locals have their own chocolate factory. To provide a good image of what is traditional in Croatia, this tour also includes some of the delicious foods from other Croatian regions such as Dalmatian "pršut" and Istrian olives. To remember the complicated names of the local dishes, you will receive the materials that should make it easy for you to go back to the locations you liked, and try out the additional food recommended by your guide.

Our guide Kristina Bozic was absolutely phenomenal. Although she had a script for this tour, she quickly picked up our personal food preferences and incorporated them seamlessly. Her enthusiasm and knowledge is well above of that you may expect for a guide. She made our day in tastes, knowledge, good conversations and smiles. We both have now acquired a deep appreciation of Croatian people and their food. Hvala vam. Marcus and Kristine from Canada

We decided to book this tour on our first full day in Croatia so we could get acquainted with the food and culture and it did not disappoint! Diana was our guide and she was so kind, knowledgeable, and funny. We had the best time and I can not recommend this tour enough!

Top visit. DIANA was super friendly, smiling and with a lot of humor. She guided us in the market and the restaurants of the city to enjoy all the specialties of Croatian cuisine. Everything we tasted was premium vs other dishes tasted in the rest of the country. As a bonus, an ice cream all together at the end of the visit. In line of progress for the tour: an option with wine or beer tasting to fully enjoy all the pleasures of the Croatian table.
