What people are saying about Dubrovnik

Branko was an exceptional guide. Very good English and he spoke and educated us the entire time on the history of Dubrovnik. Pointed out key historical aspects of the construction and design of this beautiful city! Audio headsets were fantastic and helped us hear when we were a little far away from our guide. I used an earplug in my other ear to block out competing sounds from other people walking by.

Well organized trip. We contacted our tour guide via Whatsapp for the pick up time the evening before the trip. The scenery was beautiful and the towns we visited were nice. Overall I highly recommend this trip.

Favor was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. He shared so much interesting information and fun facts with us. His narrative kept us captivated throughout our tour. The group size of 6 was perfect.

I would recommend this day trip - really good way to discover Montenegro- well organised and all 3 stops were most enjoyable- our guide was very good also with lots of interesting information shared

Very knowledgeable guide who seemed to love his home town and genuinely want us to know about its fascinating past both historic and recent. An essential part of the visit to Dubrovnik.
