If you're a fan of game of thrones, Dubrovnik is a must! And if you're not, Dubrovnik is still a must! The old town is just beautiful and walking around the walls, taking in the views is breathtaking. You get 4 hours free time on this trip, which is plenty but it does go by quickly! Petar, the guide, is on hand to answer any questions and is very helpful and passionate about his country and the history. It was a pleasure to have him as a guide for both this trip and the trip to Mostar (booked seperately). There is plenty to see and do in Dubrovik during your spare time, I only wish I had made it to Lokrum Island. Looks like I'll be returning so I can tick that off!

I thought that the full day excursion to Dubrovnik (from Split) was an incredible deal (price wise) and an amazing experience considering it was only 12 hours. The ride was long but comfortable and scenic - with explanations of the sites all along the way. Once in Dubrovnik we had an informative walking tour and received recommendations on what to do in our free time (4 hours - which is quite good). I took advantage of these suggestions and found my day and journey to be both enjoyable and memorable.

Great trip, would definitely recommend Smooth journey with lovely views Petra was a great guide, lots of information and tips. Got an hour long walking tour and then 4 hours of free time

Ant and Petar where great hosts. The city is stunning and we learnt a ton about Croatia. The walls are a must but cost approx 500knr.

The trip was great, Dubrovnik is a beautiful city, just like the pictures.
