Zagreb Tourist Guides Organisation: Providing Service to Tourists for 50 Years
If you want to get to know the sights, historical figures and the lifestyle of Zagreb, licensed tourist guides are here for you. Their expertise is guaranteed by their organisation, which is celebrating half a century since its foundation.
In early February the Zagreb Tourist Guides Organisation, the oldest such association in Croatia, marked fifty years since its foundation. The Organisation has 80 members, who are licensed tourist guides. It continuously improves the quality of their work through additional training, upgrading knowledge and raising awareness about the local heritage and organising guided tours. The organisation also participates in improving the legislative framework which governs their profession and advances their trade and cooperates with schools and other organisations such as the association for the blind or visually impaired.
Owing to all this, the Zagreb Tourist Guides Organisation is a guarantee of a high quality, professional guided tours for which its members are daily praised by many tourists.
Zagreb tourist guides offer standard tours and familiarise visitors with numerous city sights and lifestyle and advise them on what else to see, taste, purchase and how to live in the rhythm of the city while staying in it. There is a lot of interest for topic tours which take tourists though various historical periods, present well – known figures and consist of places which are linked to them always adding interesting tales. In addition to many existing topic tours, every year new ones are devised to give a closer look of the history of Zagreb, its famous citizens and events to visitors in order for them to get to know life in the city and, of course, grow to love it.
