What You Can Expect
In the 11th century, the sea channel separating the city from mainland was covered up with earth, so a single wall was built to enclose the present-day Old Town. The city walls have been restored several times in history to resemble their original appearance. With your guide, see Fort Revelin and Minceta Tower within the city walls (entrance fees not included), and learn the strategic position of these forts and their role in Dubrovnik's history. You will also see Fort Lovrijenac in the distance, the only fort that belongs to the city walls but it's physically separated from them, and which you may visit after the tour.
As you wander around Dubrovnik's ancient walls, your guide will explain the defensive and political challenges faced by Dubrovnik in the past. Hear stories of the rivalry and conquest Dubrovnik has faced and learn the secrets of how the country used defensive fortifications and diplomacy to remain an independent republic for several years, before ending your tour near the port.
Awesome tour. To see Dubrovnik whilst learning about the history of the city and Croatia was one of the highlights of my time there. My guide was fantastic, full of knowledge and also very entertaining and funny. I unfortunately can't remember his name but he was brilliant. A must do in Dubrovnik!!
Very good guide
The tour was great! The information given by the guide was so interesting, we learnt so much about Croatian history. Better to book the tour than explore on our own, we wouldn't have known the significance of what we were seeing. Definitely reccommend this tour!!!
Our guide was very knowledgable and created a great expense . This tour is highly recommend.
Recent history is most interesting. Very good tour with lovely photo ops. We did have use of the headsets to hear our guide - worked well. Very lovely, clean town catering well to tourists. Bravo!
Our guide was very caring! Constantly making sure everyone was there so we didn't miss anything. Was very knowledgeable on most questions and we were particularly happy with how good her English was! I'd highly recommend this tour to anyone I know planning a trip to Dubrovnik.
