What a fun and insightful tour! Getting to see the old city on foot while also learning about the amazing history of Dubrovnik was so worth it! If you can request a guide, go for Marin. He's a local and has some pretty cool Game of Thrones related stories in addition to his knowledge of the city!

100% you should do this tour. It's very informative and gives you a taste of all the history. Our guide was brilliant and even opened up about his own personal war experience which was heart wrenching to hear. Dubrovnik is such a beautiful place, I highly recommend this tour. Its a great way to start your holiday.

Good tour guide, he was very knowledgeable, and I learnt a lot of history of Dubrovnik. Tricky to locate start point as Pile Gate area is very busy. Even with an orange umbrella - hard to spot. Would have liked at the end - as finished in the middle of Dubrovnik- was information such as if you want to walk the walls, go here, if you want to go up the cable car go there.
