Learn what makes Dubrovnik so special by booking this informative walking tour. Meet your guide just outside Pile Gate.

Walk the 1.2-mile (2-km) walls (entrance fee not included), which were first built in the 12th century, and get a different viewpoint of the city, as the shimmering Adriatic Sea dazzles you from a distance. As you stroll, get an insider’s view of the history of Dubrovnik, from the 11th century when a sea channel, in what is now Stari Grad, was filled in. Learn also about the landmarks Fort Revelin and Minceta Tower. In the distance, you’ll see Fort Lovrijenac, the only fort that belongs to the city walls but is physically separated from them. Listen to your guide regale stories from the city’s long and rich history, about how it was an autonomous republic buttressing both the Ottoman and the Venetian Empires. Your tour then finishes near the port. *Entrance fee to City Walls not included in price.
The walk itself was above the old town on the city walls, a tour you basically can do on your own - which i don’t recommend when you can do it with Davor! His english was excellent, and his knowledge likewise! We had the perfect sunset stroll with him! I highly recommend to book this tour!
Walking the walls was a beautiful and informative experience. My two teenagers and I enjoyed it. I would suggest doing this walk either first thing in the morning or in the late afternoon due to the hot weather.
We visited beautiful Dubrovnik and experienced an excellent tour. Our tour guide Jadranka was extremely knowledgeable of the history of the city and communicated very well with our group. This city walls tour exceeded our expectations and was a highlight of our overall holiday. Recommended
Ivan was a great tour guide, he just started this year, maybe he needs a little bit of adjusting and being a little bit more clear and concise with the information he gives out, although it was really interesting and formative. Just a little bit confusing sometimes, but he did a great job. Worth the time and the heat in the sun 100%
My whole family had gone on the tour. Including my 10 and nine-year-old son both of them along with us enjoyed the tour immensely. We have done lot of tours on our travels. He was among the best we have had. He was very knowledgeable And he was a local and passionate about his history. Our guide was DAVOR I hope I got his spelling right.
