El tour por el casco antiguo nos encantó, vale la pena recorrerlo acompañados por una guía que pueda ir contando la historia. Patricia es argentina, lo cual fue una grata sorpresa, resultó muy agradable, contestando todas nuestras preguntas y contándonos un poco de historia. También trajo material para que nos lleváramos, eso me pareció un lindísimo gesto. Es una actividad altamente recomendable.

Mikayla did a great job!!! We were between doing a cruise tour or this private tour and we are SO happy we did this. If you want to see Old Town doing this tour is the best way to see all of it and still have time (and extra money) for a nice lunch, the aerial view with the cable car, and sit down coffee, and shopping. AMAZING!

Maro was amazing and was flexible due to the bad weather! We started late but spend more than 4 hours, all my friends were happy! We explored many islands and Caves along with the swimming in the beach! He was very helpful knowing things in Dubrovnik and Would definitely visit again!

Evo was fabulous. He was on time, very knowledgeable, very personable and FUN. We got more than we ever imagined from this tour. Imagine your tour guide talking about Game of Thrones and than showing you a picture of where he was in a scene.

We enjoyed the trip and Peter was so nice answering all our questions. He is highly recommended for this kind of Tour
