Essence of Dubrovnik in a few hours
Dear guests, if you are interested in discovering the essence of Dubrovnik, also known as the Rock of Freedom, and to enjoy its closest surroundings during the five hours tour, please feel free to contact me.
I will be honored to present you my country and my hometown, its history, culture, tradition and much more through the Dubrovnik area.
You will see the irresistible attractions like the great achievements of Dubrovnik architects, beautiful landscapes, area of the Ombla river (shortest river in Europe) and the panoramic views of the Elaphite islands. Aside from that you will have a chance to visit the magical, medieval town of Cavtat, the southern most Croatian town.
This tour can also be a great opportunity to see how Dubrovnik was affected by the homeland war during the 1990s as some of these points played the vital role in the defense of Southern Croatia.
Our tour starts with picking you up by an A/C vehicle at your preferred location in Dubrovnik. (hotel, accommodation, cruise ship - just in front of the ship, by the gang way ) and driving through the Ombla river area. We will stop at the source of the river for a while so you can hear some details and information about this part of Dubrovnik.
Our driving tour continues to the top of the hill Srđ(same place where the cable car goes)with a few stops at the beautiful sightseeing spots on our way. On top of the hill I will show you the Napoleonic fortress, Fort Imperial and will explain why it was important for Dubrovnik.
From there we continue our drive through picturesque Župa area, south of Dubrovnik, on our way to small medieval town of Cavtat. We are going to do a walking tour through this town of great historical and cultural heritage.
At the end, return back to Dubrovnik and walking tour through the Old town.

We spent an amazing day with Darko discovering the Croatian coast and Dubrovnik. In our opinion, Darko is the poster person for the example of an outstanding guide. His enthusiasm and passion for his country captured our hearts. He was willing to share the history of the country with us including the difficulties the country had during the war and has had during recovery. We had a very small window of time for our tour, but despite limited time, time, Darko made sure we left with a love for Croatia. WOW!
