This was a well organized activity from start to finish, our guide (Dean) gave clear instructions and guidance before setting off. Never tried kayaking before but quickly got the hang of it, having been paired with a delightful American lady who had kayaked before so just followed her lead. At various pauses along the route Dean gave us an interesting and informative history of Lokrum island and Dubrovnik. The trip lasted approximately 2 1/2 hours , with a half hour beach stop for a sandwich, swimming, snorkeling and for those brave enough cliff jumping (no I didn't, I'm old 67, and don't like heights). A thoroughly enjoyable afternoons activity.

Dubrovnik WALKS and the Walls and Wars Tour had been recommended to us by a friend who recently took the tour. We are so glad we took their advice. Our guide Goran was fantastic. Having grown up locally and experiencing the tragic events of the early 90s gave him a unique perspective on Dubrovnik. His knowledge, delivered with a lot of humor, made the tour one of the best we have taken in many years. During the two hours we spent walking the wall, he became a friend to the entire group. If you're looking for great tours while in Dubrovnik, I strongly urge you to sign up with Dubrovnik WALKS!

Interesting and isightful tour, given by Davor. A litttle bit of historical context of the people and formation of Croatia and the old city as it is today. Definitely recommended.

Amazing tour, views were breathtaking, and great walkthrough of the movie to where the scenes were filmed. Highly recommended!

Amazing experience we will definitely be returning to do again
