Dubrovnik WALKS and the Walls and Wars Tour had been recommended to us by a friend who recently took the tour. We are so glad we took their advice. Our guide Goran was fantastic. Having grown up locally and experiencing the tragic events of the early 90s gave him a unique perspective on Dubrovnik. His knowledge, delivered with a lot of humor, made the tour one of the best we have taken in many years. During the two hours we spent walking the wall, he became a friend to the entire group. If you're looking for great tours while in Dubrovnik, I strongly urge you to sign up with Dubrovnik WALKS!
