Pearl of Adriatic (Dubrovnik) meets pine paradise (Lokrum Island)


This tour is a perfect combination of rich history and magnificent nature of the Old Town of Dubrovnik and the exotic island in its vicinity, the island of Lokrum.

We will thoroughly cover the most astonishing sites of the medieval Old Town of Dubrovnik as well as some points that are located off the beaten track.

After seeing the historic sites of the 1400-year-old Dubrovnik we will take a regular boat line from Old Town port to Lokrum. This charming island is ideal way to spend your afternoon away from the crowds.

Lokrum island has plenty of interesting points that you can explore (Botanical gardens, ruins of Benedictine Monastery and Hapsburg castle, fortress from Napoleonic wars that offers magnificent panoramic views from the highest peak on the island. . . ) and enjoy some beach time.

You can either do some cliff diving from the southern part of the island or just enjoy a drink by the salt water lake watching the lazy peacocks as they prance around.

Itinerary

- meeting at Pile Gate (or some other location in the vicinity of the Old Town)
- tour around the Old Town of Dubrovnik
- catching the boat for Lokrum island
- tour around the island
- end of tour followed by free time for lunch and beach activities

Meeting Point + Tour Duration

Meeting Point Options: Suggested by Guide: Our standard meeting point for the tour is the Pile Gate (western entrance to the Old Town of Dubrovnik) or some other location at the Old Town or in near vicinity (please advise where you will be staying so I can suggest the most suitable meeting point for the tour). If the Pile Gate is the nearest option, I will be waiting near the tree on the right hand side just before the Pile Gate bridge that leads to the Old Town of Dubrovnik (near Dubravka restaurant and the OTP bank ATM)

Duration: 4 hours

The Lokrum island boat line might get cancelled due to the rough weather or high waves. Normally this rarely happens and is more common in the low season (Oct or April).

IMPORTANT: The tour is unavailable from November to March as the boat line for Lokrum island isn't running.

Transportation

The Old Town of Dubrovnik as well as the Lokrum island are pedestrian zones so this tour will be a walking tour.

In case you require transportation, please contact me for the new quotation.

A Recent Review of this tour

Tom was an excellent guide and made our trip to Dubrovnik very special. He has an amazing amount of knowledge on the history of the city, Croatia and the entire region, which made this part of the world so much more fascinating. We did not opt for the GOT tour as only 1 of the four were fans but he added a few tidbits of this epic show to the tour (Yes, I was the only fan!!), which satisfied my need. Overall, Tom was entirely delightful, well spoken and full of interesting facts and stories. AWESOME!!
