Panoramic and walking tour
The panoramic and walking tour combines the flexibility and comfort of a car or bus with the experience of a walking tour. The panoramic tour shows You all the remote places near the city center with the lower town and the walking tour shows Zagreb’s upper town with all the historic sights and the city’s vibe.
If you have your own vehicle or if you need them to arrange a vehicle for you (we can provide a car, minivan or a bus) they can combine walking and panoramic tours. The panoramic tour by a vehicle, will show you the highlights of Zagreb’s Lower Town. You’ll be driving by the Mimara museum that hosts more than 3500 pieces of art collected by Ante and Wiltrud Topić Mimara, Museum of Arts and Crafts, 19th century neo-baroque building of Croatian National Theatre, and the headquarter of the biggest University in Croatia – University of Zagreb. Continuing our drive among Zagreb’s Green Horseshoe, sequence of 8 connected parks and squares, you get a chance to see one of the stations where famous Orient Express train used to stop at – Zagreb's main train station and the hotel built for its passengers – Hotel Esplanade. Just opposite of the train station is the square named after first Croatian king with the statue of King Tomislav, and a breathtaking Art Pavilion behind it. Panoramic tour by vehicle usually approximately lasts 30 minutes, before the walking tour.
After the panoramic tour, you’re usually dropped off in front of Zagreb’s Cathedral where we continue our walking tour and the visit of two historic settlements – Kaptoland Gradec – from which Zagreb, as a capital city, developed. On Kaptol you will not only learn about the biggest Cathedral in Croatia and Croatian Catholic Church but you will also get a chance to discover our picturesque farmer’s market Dolac. After crossing the border between the two hills, today the loveliest walking street in Zagreb, we will climb up to Gradec, better known as Zagreb’s Upper Town, and enter it through medieval Stone Gate.
