Get to know the true essence of Dubrovnik, with transportation included

Get to know the true essence of Dubrovnik through the eyes of local residents. This Tour probably would be just a small part of your overall vacation, but my desire and intention is to offer you the best of me and of my city in one tour itinerary.
With this tour we want to show you all of the great landscapes and historical landmarks, introduce you with rich and intriguing history of Dubrovnik Republic and to take you for a walk you through the Old Town Dubrovnik, its streets and squares where we was born, where we grew up and where we lived. My daughter Ana and me will try to connect the past with the present, modern with traditional in order to give you a full insight about what and who we are. After visiting the Old Town Dubrovnik I would like to take to see the sights outside of the tourist crowd, over the coast and small picturesque places towards to the City of Cavtat, city that is small in size but big in character and charm. Are you curious about local cuisine? Pure sentiment and new flavors of home


This Tour is based on three main parts:
* The Old City of Dubrovnik and the history of the Republic of Dubrovnik
* Panoramic vistas and surrounding areas of Dubrovnik (Hill Srdj, Zupa dubrovacka and Cavtat)
* Past and present days of Dubrovnik

A Recent Review of this tour

Niksa and Ana were amazing guides who brought Dubrovnik alive. They were so knowledgable about the historical significance of Dubrovnik and its Old City, but also gave us added insight about their experiences during the Balkan War and about contemporary Croatian life. Both spoke excellent English, were charming, and adjusted the itinerary to fit our needs. It was a fabulous experience! These tour guides are true gems.
