Zadar Free Tour with local guide
Hi and welcome to Zadar, my name is Igor and I am a licensed tourist guide. As a history and art lover, I was always asked to show my relatives and friends around the city and that’s probably the reason why I became a tourist guide. I have more than 20 years of experience as a tour leader and guide. I like to travel a lot and I consider myself an experienced traveler, so I always like to show Zadar to my guests so they can experience it in the best way. My hobby is studying the history of the city and collecting old postcards of Zadar and items related to Maraschino, the famous original liqueur from Zadar. I will be very happy to present to you not only the city of Zadar but to give you information about Croatia in general, the region's traditions, local wines, and cuisine.
