Your getting-to-know-you session with Dubrovnik, historical diplomatic liason for the easy and west, begins with a cable car ride from the newly-opened cable cars station in the Old Town of Dubrovnik. You'll be treated to a panoramic view of Dubrovnik, showcasing the greatness of the entire city and its surrounding hills and centuries-old Dubrovnik rooftops.

On the return journey to the main Station, your tour guide will lead you by foot to the Old Town of Dubrovnik. Though it has been subject to fires and catastrophic earthquakes, the gorgeous city has always risen again to retain its title as the world famous treasury of cultural monuments.

To start off the day, the famous Croatian tourist centre awaits you, encircled by its monumental stone ramparts, which have preserved and enhanced Dubrovnik’s Renaissance spirit.

This city's harmony, simplicity and apprecation of beauty have, through the ages, become the basic philosophy of life for the residents of Dubrovnik.

Meeting point

Pile Square next to the fountain by Dubravka bar restaurant (just outside Pile gate, western entrance to Old town). Guests are obligated to come to a tour departure point by themselves. For guests coming from cruise ships: if the ship is at Dubrovnik Old Town Anchorage, guests will have to walk through Dubrovnik Old Town, you will take a tender from your ship to the Old Town Pier. From this pier, enter Old Town and walk up the main street (Placa Stradun) for approximately 300 meters to the West Side Exit at Pile Square. Here you will exit the Old Town (outside of the city walls) and you will be in Pile Square. Please look for the fountain in Pile Square where you will see your guide holding a sign that says "EuroAdria." If your ship is docked or at anchor in the port of Gruz, guests will have to take a shuttle or taxi to Pile Square. The driving time from the pier to Pile Square is approximately 7 minutes.

An informative tour, an a very nice guide

The tour started with a walk to the Telepheric under the rain, but because of this, the visit to the top was less crowded. Our guide Mariela was really nice, yet being a very small group, I would have loved a bit more walking around side streets of the old town, instead of long stops in the main squares.

On time led brilliantly by Mara who obviously loves her Croatia

As Australians we did not know what to expect from this tour but we're very pleasantly surprised. The guide, Mara, was exceptional and was very accommodating with any questions from the group. She represented Croatia faithfully and was very informative about its history and fight for survival and independence. She emphasised the devastation of Dubrovnik caused by the 1667 mammoth earthquake. She was very aware that some in the group needed to meet their Cruise ship and she calmly got us there in time and yet very informed about the old city etc. The cable car view was breathtaking. This was a tour where all our expectations were exceeded and it was in no small way due to the excellent representation Mara provided. We highly recommend yout organisation and this tour. Anthony E.
