Tour description

Dubrovnik Walking Tour is the best introduction to this unique town. The tour will reveal the most famous attractions of the town, historical facts, legends and curiosities, suggestions on what to do, where to go, hidden highlights...and so much more. This walking tour will take only 1,45 hrs of your time, and I assure you it will be worth.

As your local guide, I will try to impress you with knowledge and enthusiasm and ensure you fully enjoy the tour and this fascinating town. I suggest asking questions as much as you want, as this is what tours are all about. Thank you.

Additional info: Our sightseeing tour involves some walking, but nothing that cannot be handled as there will be only few places with steps. Choose lightweight gear that works equally well in changing weather conditions (Check the weather before you head out for the tour. Also, don't forget to have some water with you and a hat to protect from heavy sun rays, I will do my best to find shade :)

I think that Marco was excellent. His grasp of Croatian history was given with wisdom and wit including personal observations related to his and his family’s experiences from Tito onwards. His grasp of the genesis and development t of Dubrovnik was impressive. He engaged/informed with professionalism and no little humour. We were delighted with his efforts on our behalf.

Marco was great to listen to, provided a lot of information in a very relatable and engaging way. He welcomed as many questions as you could fit in, and mixed history with modern lifestyle of Dubrovnik. It was a great way to become familiar with the city, while also appreciating the history of your surroundings. Highly recommend joining at the start of your Dubrovnik stay. Thank you Marco!
