Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Meet a guide at your centrally-located hotel in Zagreb, or at Zrinjevac Park, then make the 54-mile (87-km) trip to Varazdin in a climate-controlled vehicle. As you travel to Varazdin, the guide will share an overview of the city’s fascinating history, with fun stories about Croatian life and culture.

Upon arrival, a local guide in Varazdin will join your group for a walking tour, including the Varazdin Cemetery, where gorgeous tombstones and quiet paths are overshadowed by tall, leafy trees. Follow back streets to architectural gems, and find some of the city's elegant villas—at one time, Varazdin was Croatia's wealthiest city.

Next, continue to Trakoscan Castle, 25 miles (40 km.) west of Varazdin, with a fairytale setting high on a hill. Walk the fortifications with views down to a forested valley, and get a glimpse of Croatia’s tumultuous past in the castle’s displays of weapons and armor. After exploring the castle, walk to the nearby lake, then meet back up with the driver/guide for the return trip to Zagreb.

Excellent tour operator

It was an excellent tour that went ahead when all other tour operators cancelled my tour saying they did not have enough participants. This tour operator always guarantee your tour regardless of anything. Tour guide came precisely in time and I was the only participant on that day. So, it was a private tour for me for the price of a group tour. She was very knowledgeable, I had enough time on each locations, she was taking my photos where ever I wanted. I really had a great day ! I definitely recommend this tour operator.

I was the only participant with Luka as guide. This tour was the third I had unknowingly booked from the same company - Petros - and they were all excellent! Great tours with great guides, and this one was no exception.

I can’t rate this tour, guide, and company high enough! The company specializes in small group day tours, and they really deliver. I was the only person who signed up, and instead of canceling most would have, they sent my guide, Karlo in a car and we had a fantastic day! He was fun and knowledgeable and attentive to my needs, and the timing of the whole trip was perfection. Never did I feel like I didn’t have enough time in any place we visited. Thank you Karlo! I truly hope to see you again when Mark and I return to Zagreb.
