Very good experience with Mirjana. She showed us the best places in Zagreb while also describing really unique and funny aspects of Zagreb's history.

Very interesting tour with a lot of facts you wouldn't discover travelling on your own. Mirjana is a very friendly person, and the 2 1/2 hours tour was very entertaining.
