Senad is an excellent tour guide, showing us many fascinating aspects of Zagreb. We went to the tunnels, the markets, viewed the cathedral, the Serbian orthodox church, climbed the tower and saw the cannon shoot at noon, and many more sites.

Senad was an excellent tour guide. He exceeded our expectations, taking time to listen to what we wanted and make sure he found it! He was so polite and kind, finding the parish priest to let us into a small town church, when it was locked. So great! It was an enjoyable day.

Senad was a really good guide, and I've experienced many around the world! He made us discover the "real" croatia through a day out of the beaten path. Market in town, mud bath, cooking lesson, eating fish the croatian way, end with free time on the beach like we wanted. It was one of our favorite day and experience we had in Croatia. Thank you so much Senad and wish you a good touristic season!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your response Shadya. How was your tour in Plitvice and Mreznica river so far?

Tour: #225401, Plitvice lakes NP and Rastoke waterfall area, Zagreb, Croatia    view tour
Date: May 26/18

We had two tours with Senad - a Zagreb city tour, and a customized Plitvice Lakes tour where we did almost all the hiking trails, plus a stop in Rastoke for dinner. Both were excellent - the city tour included plenty of current commentary and interesting stops (and a stop for excellent beer and local foods). Plitvice Lakes was spectacular; Senad helped us minimize our exposure to the crowds, and the drive down was an education in the effect of the Balkan war on the country. Highly recommended.

Senad was a fine guide and aside from his parking in a spot where we had to walk through snow to get to the start point at Plitvice Lakes everything was good. Enjoyed the stop at his "secret" place overlooking a town built along a river.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Trakoscan Castle, in spite of an unexpected snowstorm (about 20 cm, I think). Senad dealt with the weather well, and provided us with a nice tour.

Senad is 100% professional. We hired him to take us to four very small villages on both sides of the Slovenia-Croatia border where our ancestors were born. On the day of the tour he came prepared with an excellent plan and a route mapped out. We found all the villages; visited churches & cemeteries. He engaged with residents of the villages. In addition he had researched the history of the area and helped us search through the cemeteries in the rain. Great choices for lunch and cream cakes. Thanks.

Had a fantastic day tour with Senad to Plitvice lakes. Senad was a very knowledgeable and entertaining guide who happily put up with me taking photos every two minutes. He knew so much about the area and how the lakes were created, which was very interesting. I cannot recommend Senad highly enough, he is one of the best tour guides I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

Good tour through a lovely part of Croatia. Senad took us through the castle himself and gave fascinating commentary. Then afterward we were allowed a half hour to walk around the man made lake below the castle. It was interesting and we got some amazing photographs. From there we went to a restaurant on top of a hill for lunch, and both the food and the views were amazing.

My husband who is a travel agent and I generally contact with tour guides in cities throughout the world. Senad was very special and wonderful in guiding us through the historical sites of Zagreb. In advance we asked that he also show us areas off the beaten path and indeed he did taking us into some residential areas of the city. He is very personable and excellent language ability. He was a real delight to spend the day with. Very highly recommended.

The entire day with Senad was fantastic! We enjoyed riding in his car through the most beautiful countryside and learning so much about Croatian history, people and the land. The castles were lovely and the additional private guides in each place were superb. Senad was great in answering so many questions I had and did a great job chosing our lunch location and ordering for us. The entire trip far exceeded my expectations and I would highly recommend this tour!

A fantastic tour with Senad in the beautiful Medvednica Nature Park. If you want to spend time outside of Zagreb but don't want to spend hour's travelling, this is the perfect tour. We had a 6 hour hike across mixed terrain to the highest peak at Sljeme. The forests and scenery are beautiful. A highlight was the guided tour around the Medieval fort of Medvegrad. Senad was the perfect guide. If you want to experience nature a short distance from the city, this is the perfect tour. Highly recommended.

Senad was terrific and we spent a fun and informative day with him. We walked, took the funicular, drove all over Zagreb and left with a in depth understanding of the city and it's people. Senad also gave us much interesting and useful information about Croatia and Slovenia that set the foundation for the remainder of our visit to these countries. He was not only cute to look at but intelligent, well traveled and knowledgeable about this region of the world. I am very glad I chose him to be our guide.

This tour and tour guide, Senad O. were fantastic. There was a lot of rain during our visit, but our guide was able to amazingly adjust our itinerary to mostly dodge the bad weather and maximize our sightseeing experience at the national parks and surrounding areas. Senad is very knowledgeable about Croatian history and culture, which greatly added to the richness of our tour. Our group included two seniors (70+ yrs old) and one other adult; Senad adapted the tour so that everyone could enjoy each day.

Senad was a great correspondent and resource before we even selected our tours, providing loads of helpful advice. As a guide, he was very enthusiastic and made sure we had a good experience. Trakoscan Castle was fascinating, and the walk around the lake was beautiful. Our luncheon and wine tasting at a local winery/guest house was memorable....beautiful setting, good food and wines, nice people and gorgeous sunshine. It's a day we'll remember!

Senard was a fantastic guide for the 4 of us who had a day-trip out of Zagreb to see Trakoscan Castle, eat a Croatian countryside lunch, and visit the Neanderthal Museum. It was a delightful day because of Senard. He was prompt, flexible, knowledgeable, and lots of fun. He gave great recommendations about how to schedule our day, and helped us rearrange as time went by. His English was excellent, and he was attentive to make sure we were happy. We've already recommended him to friends. He's that good.

Had high expectations going into the tour and we weren't disappointed! The parks we went to (missed one due to rain) were beautiful; our guide knew the best routes to take us on and was knowledgeable about the parks. If the weather was bad our guide always had an alternative activity to do. He went above and beyond to give us a more authentic Croatian experience and we couldn't have had a better time. Would recommend this tour if you want to be immersed in the beauty and history Croatia has to offer.
