Although the tour is generally suitable for people with disabilities, there are few locations which can be challenging for people using wheelchair or crutches as it may be necessary to climb several steps in order to reach the entrance. This is the case with the Cathedral and the Church of St Blaise, whereas Sponza palace is more easily accessible, but please note that there are also few steps at the entrance.

Meet the Pearl of Adriatic!


Dubrovnik Essentials Tour is designed for first time visitors or tourists that have a limited time on their disposal. The idea behind this tour is to provide precise insight on the main events that have shaped the rich and turbulent history of Dubrovnik, as well as to assure that the clients don't miss any of the most important locations of this marvellous living museum.

This tour could also be organized during the evening hours, when you can truly feel the spirit of this unique town in its own natural setting, away from the daily crowds.

This private tour could also be organized as a part of an extended tour which can include other attractive locations in Dubrovnik surroundings (the town of Cavtat, the fertile Konavle valley, the Arboretum of Trsteno or the ancient walled town of Ston).

Itinerary

As much as my aim is to cover all the main attractions, the itinerary and the pace of the tour would largely depend on the preferences, interests and wishes of the clients.

Possible itinerary: we can start the tour at the Pile Gate, move on to the Large Onofrio's Fountain (15 ct) and Franciscan Monastery (14 ct), where we'll have a sneak peek of the longest running pharmacy in Europe. We continue through the main street Stradun all the way to Luza Square for a photo break of two symbols of Dubrovnik's liberty: the Orlando's column (15 ct) and the Church of St Blaise (18 ct). We will proceed through the old Jewish Quarter (16 ct) and then visit the memorial room in Sponza palace (16 ct). After that we will stop by the Dominican Monastery (14 ct) and go through the medieval port of Dubrovnik to visit the Dubrovnik Cathedral (18 ct). We will have a photo stop at the Rector's Palace (15 ct) and finish the tour at the lively local marketplace where you can sample some of the traditional home-made sweets.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Meeting location is usually at the drawbridge at Pile Gate (western entrance to Old Town of Dubrovnik).

End location: Old Town of Dubrovnik

Duration: 2 hours

Although this tour is estimated to last two hours, I am quite flexible with my time and can extend the tour upon clients' request with no extra charge, providing, of course, that I don't have any other tours scheduled immediately after this one.

This is the tour around the Old Town of Dubrovnik, which is a pedestrian zone so this will be a walking tour.

A Recent Review of this tour

We thoroughly enjoyed Tomislav's informative tour of Dubrovinik. His fact-filled narration delivered with lots of humorous asides, gave our group lots to discuss after the tour. Tom answered all of our questions and gave suggestions for other activities. It was a privilege to have such an enthusiastic guide!
