Those who seek paradise on Earth should come and see Dubrovnik
Name of the tour says it all; Dubrovnik to remember and tell your descendants about. Join me on a 3 hours walking tour along the magnificent city walls and through narrow streets of Dubrovnik (UNESCO world heritage since 1979). Tour gives you an unique opportunity to explore Dubrovnik beyond regular tourist perspective. During the tour you will hear an impressive story about independence of Dubrovnik (Rise&Fall of the Republic), recent war time, extraordinary events and life today while we pass by all major sites in Dubrovnik. After hearing about our customs, traditions, people, lifestyle and curiosities, Dubrovnik will have a special place in your heart forever.
Tour consists of 2 parts;
1) Guided tour of the city walls
2) Walk along the streets of Dubrovnik and visiting major attractions of Dubrovnik.
We could start first with any and as you prefer but also have weather in mind as well. Usual and convenient way of doing the tour is walking the southern part of city walls first. Southern side of city walls is easier to walk than northern one and with nicer views to the city, sea, islands and surrounding area.
While we walk through the city of Dubrovnik we will visit major sites such as; Great and Small Onofrio's fountain, Franciscan and Dominican church, Stradun- main street of Dubrovnik, Orlando's Column, Sponza Pallace, Bell Tower, St. Blaise church , Rector's Palace, Old green Market, Cathedral and Old city Port.
If you prefer to visit one of the museums (Rector's Pallace, Franciscan or Dominican monastery, Sponza Pallace or other) instead of walking the city walls, we could do that as well. Adding more time to the tour is available on request.
Meeting Location + Tour Duration
Meeting location: Meeting point for this tour is Pile Gate which is the western and main entrance to Old City.
If you will be arriving to the port, getting there from the port is very easy.
Just in front of the ship there are many taxi vehicles that are driving from the port to Pile gate for a fixed fee of 13 EUR in one way per vehicle.
I WOULD BE WAITING FOR YOU WITH YOUR NAME-SIGN WHERE THE TAXI AND BUSES STOP, just next to the monument box with mirrors and in front of tourist info office.
If you will staying in Dubrovnik, Pile Plateau or Pile Gate is end station to get to the Old City and Western entrance to Old City.
End location: End location is usually Pile gate but any other location of your interest in Old City area will be fine as well.
Duration: 3 hours

First part of the tour includes walking 1/2 or full tour of city walls-full tour is 2 km long).
We can chose any option, as you prefer.

This tour is private meaning that itinerary depends entirely on your own preferences. If you do not prefer walking the city walls we could visit some of the museums or try some of the Croatian wines; all options are fine by me.

Igor was very professional and organized in walking six of us through the beautiful walls and the old town of Dubrovnik. His knowledge of the history of Croatia, in particular Dubrovnik was outstanding. Igor was very helpful before and during the tour in answering questions on what we can do on our own. We highly recommend Igor.
