Full description
Enjoy a full-day excursion from Split to Dubrovnik, where you will tour inside the historic city walls and along the limestone streets of the Old Town. First, enjoy a scenic ride along the Dalmatian Coast, stopping once or twice for panoramic views across the Adriatic Sea. This is the Mediterranean as it used to be, before the onslaught of mass tourism.

Upon arrival at the pearl of the Isthmus of Dubrovnik, take an official guided tour of the city’s historic monuments. Each corner of Dubrovnik is a unique experience, and the 90-minute tour is enough to visit attractions such as the monumental Pile Gate, located at the top of Stradun, Dubrovnik’s famous street of limestone, polished by years of footfall.

Go to the Franciscan Monastery, where 30,000 volumes, 216 incunabula, and 1,500 valuable handwritten documents are stored in the library. The cloister is one of the most magnificent monuments in the city and houses the oldest pharmacy in Europe, dating back to 1317.

A little further on, encounter the Renaissance splendor of Sponza Palace, notable for its portico and columns, and elaborate stone carvings. Today it is home to Croatia’s State Archives. Your guided tour ends at St. Blaise Cathedral, dedicated to the city’s patron saint and protector. Built on the ruins of a 12th-century church, it was destroyed by an earthquake in 1667, then rebuilt in a Baroque style. It’s a popular place for weary tourists to rest on the steps leading up to the entrance.

You are now free to explore the town by yourself. Feel free to climb the city walls and walk the full 1.24-mile (2-kilometer) circuit, offering breathtaking views across a sea of terracotta tiles and the boats and cruise liners in the bustling port. Try some authentic Croatian dishes in local taverns, or just enjoy a cup of coffee in an al fresco café and watch the world go by.

The day was fantastic! The scenery was so beautiful. A must see!!! Dubrovnik was a stunning place. Both the driver and the tour guide were great. Amazing English spoken by the guide.... he had a great sense of humour. Would highly recommend the trip. A long day but really worth it.

The guide (Igor) and the bus driver were very friendly and competent.

Igor is a wonderful guide. He knows a lot of history, was very friendly and speaks English very well. He had great tips for what you can do in Dubrovnik. I.e. he recommended a wonderful beach near to the old town. On the return he gave great tips for visiting Trogir and another places in Croatia. I enjoyed it.

Highly recommend this day tour! Especially if you have limited time. Both Maja, the tour guide and Tiho, the bus driver were great. The meeting point was super easy to find. The bus had air conditioning which was definitely needed on the day I went (such a relief!). They also provide water for a small cost and stop once each way for a quick break. As for Dubrovnik itself, the place was absolutely stunning. One of a kind!
