What You Can Expect
Meet your guide and stroll over to Dubrovnik’s Old Town to experience the history and culture of this magnificent walled city. After admiring Pile Gate (the Old Town’s grand entrance), walk along the elegant main street, stopping to look at the most interesting sites along the way. See the circular Onofrio's Fountain with its huge central dome, and amble past the Franciscan monastery.
Continue walking to Sponza Palace – an attractive building that’s easily the jewel in Dubrovnik’s Renaissance crown. Now housing the country’s extensive state archives, Sponza Palace was once the town’s most opulent palatial building. Other highlights on your walking tour include Orlando`s Column, the City Bell Tower, Rector’s Palace and the Church of St Blaise – a pretty church dedicated to the city’s patron saint.
Next, head across the main square to see the Baroque Cathedral of the Assumption that was rebuilt in the 18th century following an earthquake, and then end your walking tour near the start point. Before your afternoon activity starts, enjoy a break of roughly one hour and 45 minutes. Perhaps have lunch (own expense), or sightsee a little more around town.
Dubrovnik Sea Kayak and Snorkeling Small-Group Tour (3 hours):
Meet your instructor in central Dubrovnik and then head to the waterside for a briefing on how to kayak and snorkel safely using the equipment provided.
Then, it’s ready, steady, paddle! Kayak around the Old Town walls, near St Lawrence Fortress (Lovrijenac) and the city harbor, admiring all the top Dubrovnik sights from the water. Enjoy stops at several check points around the city’s coast, where your instructor will point out places of interest and snippets of history.
Continue paddling over to the lush little island of Lokrum, and stop on Betina Beach for a well-deserved break. Refuel with snacks and water, and then put on your snorkeling gear before swimming off with your instructor to discover the Adriatic’s underwater world. Then kayak back to the start point.
We loved our sea kayak tour! Neither of us are very fit but we managed it well (aching muscles afterwards though!). The kayak guide was brilliant and looked after us really well. When we were told how far we had kayaked we didnt believe it...I wont spoil the surprise for anyone else booking it!
If you don't know where to look it can be hard to find the launch site but you just need to go towards the fort and you will see the jetty down the steps. We would have liked to kayak some more whilst we were in Croatia but the weather turned very stormy and we were too chicken after that!
The walking tour of Dubrovnik was great too. The guide was very knowledgeable and took us around the old town at a comfortable pace. It is hard though to get a good idea of where you are as the old town was SO busy and packed with cruise ships and everyone else doing tours. Perhaps there could be a tour which runs after 4pm when the majority of people have disappeared?
Thanks - I would recommend this particular combination to anyone, it gave us a really enjoyable day in Dubrovnik.
Walking Tour - a must if you have the time. The learning opportunity is incredible. Imagine... the world's first pharmacy in the public domain, water supply piped into the walled city from external acquifer... which you can drink at will. See the 700 year old tradition of feeding the pigeons in the square. Nosh on incredible pizza, gelato, seafood... explore the churches, statues and learn more about the nobility that used to live in the walled city. FANTASTIC!
Sea Kayaking - if you have never been, do not be scared. You will have a guide, a dry place to put your valuables and a dry place for your camera - at the ready, as you paddle around the wall, over to the snorkeling beach. It was a bit rough on my return trip, but my triceps were on fire, my lips chapped (be sure to wear your swimsuit - you WILL get wet). Enjoy the sights featured in Game of Thrones, learn about the first quarantine (they had to keep disease out of the walled city), ancient attacks on the city, and recent memories from the conflict with Bosnia. A highlight of my trip to Dubrovnik. Excellent, friendly guide, with impeccable English, and a love of local history. Fantastic trip - you will not be disappointed!
