Dubrovnik Day Tour from Split or Trogir

Dubrovnik Day Tour from Split or Trogir

Enjoy a full-day excursion from Split to Dubrovnik, where you will tour inside the historic city walls and along the limestone streets of the Old Town.  First, enjoy a scenic ride along the Dalmatian Coast, stopping once or twice for panoramic views across the Adriatic Sea. This is the Mediterranean as it used to be, before the onslaught of mass tourism. Upon arrival at the pearl of the Isthmus of Dubrovnik, take an official guided tour of the city’s historic monuments.  Each corner of Dubrovnik is a unique experience, and the 90-minute tour is enough to visit attractions such as the monumental Pile Gate, located at the top of Stradun, Dubrovnik’s famous street of limestone, polished by years of footfall. Go to the Franciscan Monastery, where 30,000 volumes, 216 incunabula, and 1,500 valuable handwritten documents are stored in the library. The cloister is one of the most magnificent monuments in the city and houses the oldest pharmacy in Europe, dating back to 1317. A little further on, encounter the Renaissance splendor of Sponza Palace, notable for its portico and columns, and elaborate stone carvings. Today it is home to Croatia’s State Archives.  Your guided tour ends at St. Blaise Cathedral, dedicated to the city’s patron saint and protector. Built on the ruins of a 12th-century church, it was destroyed by an earthquake in 1667, then rebuilt in a Baroque style.  You are now free to explore the town by yourself. Feel free to climb the city walls and walk the full 1.24-mile (2-kilometer) circuit, offering breathtaking views across a sea of terracotta tiles and the boats and cruise liners in the bustling port.  Try some authentic Croatian dishes in local taverns, or just enjoy a cup of coffee in an al fresco café and watch the world go by. On your way back to Split we will make a short stop for oyster tasting in Ston which is famous for its very well preserved town walls, its salt works, and its oysters.

It was an unforgettable trip to Biokovo/Skywalk!! Everything went so smoothly. The buggy ride was a dream, no waiting time when entering the park. Our guide Ivan timed everything perfectly so that we were alone at the picnic. It consisted of local delicacies and was really delicious!! Ivan speaks perfect German, is very child-friendly, makes the tour educational and takes time for the participants! We would go back anytime!!! Thank you!!

We were really happy with the tuk-tuk tour up to skywalk Biokovo! It was really fun to be driving in an open small vehicle. On the way up we got a shot of some traditional cherry liqueror and traditional chocolate. The guide (Theo/Tony- the 20 years boy) was really nice and funny. We highly recommend this trip!

It was an awesome trip that our kids gave us as a birthday present. The host was great and offered local food from his family. Personal guidance combined with great views. The vehicles are clean and safe. Can't take one highlight out of the trip, the whole trip is a highlight. Br. Einar og Þórunn

It was an indescribably beautiful tour with our guide Ivan and the driver Dobre. We were lucky enough to get a private tour with a picnic and were able to talk to him in German without any restrictions. The buggy ride will remain unforgettable. Thank you very much until next time

tino is a funny guide, he also knows a lot of animals.😂
