What people are saying about Square of Arms

Very exciting tour. In addition to the basic information, our guide was also able to respond well to our questions and answer them in a noticeably well-founded manner. If you need more than an hour (we were on the road for about 1:30 hours) there is still no extra charge and you have time for everything.

Very interesting tour of the old town. Lots of information about the buildings and the history. Love that it takes only 1 hour and you get a good overview and even recommendations about where to dine and where to take additional walks to see even more. Worth the time and money!

Ivana was lovely and excellent tour guide. She knew everything about the area and local culture. There were 4 of us on the tour and we all give her 5 stars.

The guide was very flexible when our ship arrived late in port. He was also very knowledgeable and friendly. Would recommend

Fantastic tour that helped us learn both the history and what it's like living as a local.
