Old Zagreb Private Walking Tour is the best way to experience Zagreb, relive its history and feel the pulse of a modern city. Our licensed guides will take you on a stroll through the oldest streets of Zagreb visiting all the main sights while combining historical facts with the everyday life of a big city. The tour takes guests to both Gradec and Kaptol, two medieval settlements Zagreb was founded of.
