An absolute must - 10/10 recommend!

I absolutely loved this tour. Katarina was incredibly knowledgeable and did a great job of sharing historical facts in an easy to understand way. I was really blown away with the way she discussed the context of historical events while being very emotionally intelligent and adding her own personal stories. Highly recommend for anyone interested in learning more about Croatia’s complicated history over the past century. 10/10!

Excellent content, masterfully conveyed

Easy-to-follow explanations of the history of the country. Guides have superb command of English and thoughfully applied this throughout. Very direct answers to questions from the participants. A highlight in terms of content, for me, and something I will remember... was the explanation of death camps in Croatia and who was responsible for setting up and running them. I had not considered this point of view before.

This was by far the most informative tour I’ve ever been on. It was nearly 100 history lesson in two amazing hours. Although the subject matter was often dark and downright horrific, Luca managed to reel it in with such calm and clarity. Great history lesson.

A timely tour and great guide.

The history of the Balkans is a period in which I was woefully ignorant UNTIL I took this tour. The guide pulled the pieces of the region's tumultuous history together with many visual props and on-site locations.The tour's emotionally charged conclusion (in a bomb shelter) was particularly poignant, esp. in light of the current situation in Ukraine.

Best historical tour I've had in years.

Excellent guide, perfect story and speed of the tour and talk. Not as other tours, were it takes for ever to get to the point. Very intersting with such a good and well educated guide, with the side of the Croatians. (a little wish, that the end is not that strongly bias, but remain on the objective side, as the rest of the tour) The best 2,5 hours spend, if you come to Zagreb. Take this tour. (Don't go Hop on Hop of bus, town is to little) Note that it is rather cold in the basement the last hour of the tour. Bring sweater.

Brilliant tour! A very knowledgeable and funny tour guide, he brings 20th century Yugoslavia and Croatia to life. If you don't do this while in Zagreb, you haven't experienced the best of this city!

Sensory and informative tour of the geographical, political and social development of Croatia

Our tour guide gave us a fascinating sea of knowledge about Croatian history and culture in a well explained way. Would highly recommend to all tourists as it gives you a lot of background about Croatia’s journey to independence. The stops were well-selected and overall It was also particularly interesting to see history through a different lens that a first-world country could never provide.

I particularly loved the stories of the Croatian War and the very balanced analysis of Tito. Our guide, Luka, brought Croatian history to life and he truly has a passion for the topic. This tour could not have been better, and Luka used humor to keep us attentive.

Fascinating tour. Vid (the guide) was so knowledgeable and thoughtful about the whole history of the country and was happy to answer all my questions. It's incredibly thought provoking and such a vital part of the history of this area of the world.

Our tour guide had an excellent knowledge of the subject since he lived through it. His explanation and stories were very clear and kept me very interested. He did a great job taking participants from loud traffic noise so he was very easy to hear. I highly recommend this tour.

Kristina did an excellent job of explaining the very complicated history of Croatia. Her and her family’s personal experiences during the homeland War really made an impression on us.
