Dubrovnik Shore Excursion: Old Town Walking Tour

While you’re in port in Dubrovnik, stroll around the narrow streets of Old Town and soak up the history and culture of this magnificent walled city. On this two-hour walking tour, your local guide will show you the finest sights of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Old Town.

Your shore excursion begins at Pile Gate; walk along the elegant main street and visit the most important attractions along the way. In front of the Pile Gate entrance, you'll see the circular Onofrio's Fountain, which is connected by aqueduct to a spring 7.5 miles (12 km) from town. Then see the Franciscan Monastery, containing a restored sculpture of the Pieta and a gorgeous cloister dating back to the 14th century.

Continue walking to Sponza Palace, a Renaissance palace that now houses the State Archives. Other highlights on this tour include Orlando`s Column, the City Bell Tower, the Rector’s Palace and the Church of St Blaise, the city’s patron saint. Continue across the main square, where you will visit Dubrovnik's baroque Cathedral of the Assumption, built in the 18th century after an earthquake destroyed the original one.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Excellent tour and tour guide. Even in the pouring rain, we saw all the sights and the guide found places for us to shelter while she explained the sights.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

The guide, Vlatka, was very knowledgeable and the tour was a lot of fun. My only suggestion would be perhaps a rest stop at a café-- it was very hot on the day of the tour and a break would have been nice.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

It was fine, as good as we hoped. Very nice, cheery and informative guide (Ana I think) and it was our first experience with Viator and we will recommend Viator to others.

Outstanding tour of Old Town Dubrovnik with an amazing guide. While on a cruise ship stop at Dubrovnik, we decided to arrange our own tour of the Old Town instead of through the cruise line (booked the tour ahead of time). Maybe we lucked out, but instead of being in a large group navigating the tight alleyways of the old city, we, in our party of six (including two children ages 2 and 4), had a tour guide to ourselves. We were really able to dictate the pace of the tour and focus on the areas we wanted more information on. Our guide was extremely pleasant, very helpful and accomodating. Old Town was beautiful and is a "no-brainer" must do when in Croatia. Also recommend a walk along the wall that borders the old town, but I don't personally think it's necessary to do this with a guide. Audio-guides are available for a rental fee, but otherwise, "google" or "wikipedia" some info and walk the wall on your own and at your own pace. The main point for most, is enjoying the stunning views from different spots along the wall anyway.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2012

tour guide was late but she was very good and informative when the tour started. No head sets so was hard to hear at times. Liked the small group, made it much easier to get around.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this October 2014

Cannot review as the tour guide did not show up and have not heard back from them or Viator.
