  • From Dubrovnik: Montenegro Tour with Cruise in Kotor Bay

    2. From Dubrovnik: Montenegro Tour with Cruise in Kotor Bay

    Start your tour with complimentary pick-up from your hotel or nearest possible location to your accommodation in Dubrovnik from 07:00 AM to 07:45 AM. Once everyone has been picked up, drive by bus or van to the Croatian/Montenegrin border crossing. After border control is done, enjoy a coffee break, at your own expense, before heading to the port, where you will embark on a boat to start your adventure. The boat will first take you to the artificial island of Our Lady of the Rocks to visit the beautiful monument in the heart of the bay. From there, proceed to the old town of Kotor, the most important Venetian port built on this side of the Adriatic coast with impressive 4.5-kilometer long city walls, that have been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1979. Kotor is unique for several reasons. It is located on the only natural fjord of its kind in the world. Visiting Kotor is about m...

    The bay of Kotor and the cities of Perast and Kotor are wonderful - well worth the trip! It's a long day, and the border crossings make it longer, but I do recommend this excursion.

Admire the terracotta roofs and narrow streets from above. In addition, enjoy the clear vista over the Adriatic sea, revealing just about any boat on the horizon.

    The tour was well worth the money. The guide provided many insights and personal stories which made everything very interesting. So much history but given in chunks easy to digest and keep your attention. I would never want to walk the walls without the input of a local like our guide.

    6. Dubrovnik Full-Day Tour from Split or Trogir

    Explore the walled Old Town of Dubrovnik and learn about the maritime Republic of Ragusa on a guided tour of the monuments of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. Admire Renaissance and Baroque architecture within the 2-kilometer long defensive walls and stroll down the central Stradun. See one of the oldest pharmacies in the world at the Franciscan Church and Monastery and visit the Rector's Palace and Fort Lovrijenac. Get ample photo opportunities on the pedestrianized streets, and use your free time to take the cable car to the top of Srđ Hill. Take in the magnificent views of Dubrovnik and the archipelago, or stroll around the Old Town at leisure. 

    The day trip from Split to Dubrovnik was a joy. Dubrovnik is a gorgeous place, which can easily get overcrowded, due to its small size (the Old Town). Even in mid September, it was hot. The Old Town can be enjoyed from the city walls, but this requires a good shape, since it is quite a hike. The cable car ride is very much worth it also. The view from the mountain is amazing. The road trip from Split is also beautiful, especially the second part, as the Dubrovnik area looks amazing. I found the guided tour part too long (1 hour), as a lot of information is available and can be read by those interested. After that I had to run from one place to another in the remaining 3 hours, and I had not enough time left to enjoy a proper lunch, all the more that most places were crowded. Overall, given the context, the trip with Gray Lines was excellent, well organized, in A/C minivans (participants were split in 2 smaller groups). Border crossing went smoothly.

    We visited Dubrovnik during 2020 coronavirus pandemic. The city had much fewer visitors than ever, therefore me and my husband were the only ones joining the tour. Even so, Sonja was very kind and carried on the tour just for us. She was very knowleadgeable about the GoT movie, but also she offered some historic facts about the city, at our request, and even gave us some tips to help us during our stay. Thank you very much for this experience, it was unique! All the best!

  • Dubrovnik: City Walls Tour for Early Birds or Sunset Chasers

    10. Dubrovnik: City Walls Tour for Early Birds or Sunset Chasers

    A stroll around Dubrovnik’s city walls is a must-do for every visitor to Croatia. The best way to see it is to come before everyone else does — so join this tour to get to the city walls as soon as the gates open, on either a shared or private tour.

Six meters deep in some places, the walls are dotted with forts looking out to both sea and land. Your tour ends on the highest point along the wall, the top of Minceta Tower, where the view i...

    The city walls are a sight to behold! Views are spectacular and we cannot recommend the early tour enough due to fewer visitors and lower temperature (it’s still hot, but nothing compared to midday) We were lucky to have Jelena as our guide as she is really lovely and extremely knowledgeable about the history of the city and Croatia in general. We were able to ask questions as we went along and she gave us tips for places to eat and other sights to visit. It’s definitely worth paying extra for a tour of the walls so that you can find out the history of the buildings across the city.
