Overall rating

(8,319 reviews)

Really enjoyed our tour of the city walls and Dubrovnik. Our guide (wish I remembered his name) was very friendly, knowledgeable, and easy to talk to. Getting going earlier and doing the morning tour at 8am was perfect because we beat the heat and all the cruise ship crowds and had the walls nearly to ourselves. Our guide also gave us recommendations for restaurants nearby for lunch after the tour. We did end up trying one of them and it was fantastic! The walking was very manageable and the guide paced it well with breaks to talk after areas of lots of steps. Highly recommended and we would book another tour with the same guide without hesitation.

An amazing tour which I would highly recommend. Deša was a fantastic tour guide who provided lots of interesting insights and even recommendations too which was very helpful. It is definitely a tour I would recommend if you want further insights when exploring the City Walls. The morning time slot also meant it wasn’t crowded.

We were the only 2 people on the tour. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, patient, and kind. She provided the perfect balance of taking lead sometimes and letting us wander on our own at certain spots. She took time to answer all our questions and even took photos for us. She gave us lots of great recommendations for the city.

Really really enjoyed this tour. Included 2 cocktails each and yummy snacks, really good value for money and the views are absolutely amazing!!! Sunset was beautiful, staff were really friendly too.

Great tour, our guide Josif was amazing really friendly and loads of knowledge. The tour was really interesting and got to see loads of the sights. Would definitely recommend.
