Panoramic Drive and Walking Tour of the City with a Twist

Make the most out of your short stay here by letting me show you some of the city's highlights and introduce the story of its past as well as its present.

After the pick up at the port, you will take a ride to top of Mount Srdj, overlooking the city. Here there will be some time to enjoy the views, do some panoramic photography and learn a few things about the surrounding area. This is a perfect starting point for the city tour which will continue down in the historical city center.

My walking tour of the city's historical centre serves to introduce not only rich history of Dubrovnik, but the way of life and nuances of local culture of its people as well. There is a number of ways in which the tour can be modified to individual guests, so I do enjoy the fact that during the tour I get to learn about my guests as well. You will be given plenty of time for independent exploring before which you will enjoy a refreshing drink in one of the loveliest local restaurants.

A Recent Review of this tour

Four of us toured Dubrovnik with Bozidar "Bo." He was on time; van was very comfortable. To avoid crowds, car headed to top. Bo articulately shared historical, defense, architectural, commercial, etc. facts about the city/Croatia and answered any questions. Returning to city, our walking tour began. We opted to not stop for a drink, but to complete the tour and then go to lunch. Bo lived in Dubrovnik during a sieg and provided personal insight into life at that time. Lunch at KOPUN was GREAT!
