Full description

Your getting-to-know-you session with Dubrovnik, historical diplomatic liaison for the easy and west, begins with a cable car ride from the newly-opened cable cars station in the Old Town of Dubrovnik. You'll be treated to a panoramic view of Dubrovnik, showcasing the greatness of the entire city and its surrounding hills and centuries-old Dubrovnik rooftops. On the return journey to the main Station, your tour guide will lead you by foot to the Old Town of Dubrovnik. Though it has been subject to fires and catastrophic earthquakes, the gorgeous city has always risen again to retain its title as the world-famous treasury of cultural monuments. Choose to spend time within the Walls of Dubrovnik with included entry. Today's walking tour will introduce you to the best of Dubrovnik, one of the largest and most luxurious open-air museum towns in existence. To start off the day, the famous Croatian tourist center awaits you, encircled by its monumental stone ramparts, which have preserved and enhanced Dubrovnik’s Renaissance spirit. Travel down labyrinths of short, narrow stone streets, the marketplace, palaces, towers, monasteries, and houses - each of which is more than 300 years old! This city's harmony, simplicity, and appreciation of beauty have, through the ages, become the basic philosophy of life for the residents of Dubrovnik.

Pile Square next to the fountain by Dubravka bar restaurant (just outside Pile gate, western entrance to Old town). Guests are obligated to come to a tour departure point by themselves.

From this pier, enter Old Town and walk up the main street (Placa Stradun) for approximately 300 meters to the West Side Exit at Pile Square. Here you will exit the Old Town (outside of the city walls) and you will be in Pile Square. Please look for the fountain in Pile Square where you will see your guide holding a sign that says "EuroAdria." If your ship is docked or at anchor in the port of Gruz, guests will have to take a shuttle or taxi to Pile Square. The driving time from the pier to Pile Square is approximately 7 minutes.

Met Sara our guide at 9:00 outside the city walls where our tour begins. We walked around the walls and went to get the cable cars. At the top we stopped for a 30min, you can take panoramic pictures of the whole town and neighbour islands. You can have a rest, grab a coffee and toilets are up there. Then we came down in the cable car and continued our old town tour. You can ask as much questions as possible Sara was knowledgeable and knew her city well. She gave us recommendations where to eat, and see. Tour is only 3h even though the add says 4-5h. You have to do a lot of walking and some stairs so be prepared. If you like to know the history and see the town in detail this is a great activity.

After riding the cable car, you had a fantastic view of Dubrovnik. Then it was a tour and a lot of history to take part in with our guide Katarina who was born and raised in Dubrovnik. She was great! Recommend the guide as you get a better view of the area.

An informative tour, an a very nice guide

The tour started with a walk to the Telepheric under the rain, but because of this, the visit to the top was less crowded. Our guide Mariela was really nice, yet being a very small group, I would have loved a bit more walking around side streets of the old town, instead of long stops in the main squares.
