Dubrovnik City Tour Excursion Reviews
Guide was great - city is awesome!! Tour takes you to the 2 monasteries.
Dubrovnik is now very commercialised and getting expensive. Too many people visiting at one time, cruise ships are killing this place! Very expensive to walk the walls @ GBP 18 per person.
We took another trip to Korcula ( not on the list ) great place, relaxing super value for money and very friendly and polite people. Visit soon before the cruise ships spoil it.
Dubrovnik Scenic Cruise and Old Town City Tour — Adult Only Departure
We got on a boat straight off the ship and had a little but pretty trip to the old city of Dubrovnik. After being guided around the central street for a little while, we got time to explore on our own. We walked around the entire city wall (worth it, but very long!), and would have tried to get up to the mountain if we could have. Too many tours, so the line was enormous. You get to see a lot in a few hours, and if we had found it we would have dined at the Lady Pi Pi (it's high up close to the city wall).
We took an excursion but would have been much better off taking the shuttle bus (which magically only came into existence after everyone had booked the tours!). We had different opinions about Dubrovnik. I thought it was charming and atmospheric with an fascinating history whereas others thought the town architecture looked like a prison. The guide had some very interesting facts about the war and the history but was impossible to acquire any substantial information because of the sheer volume of people. The Tour Guide did her best but there were lots of other tours and it was not possible to hear what she was saying and consequently couple by couple we peeled off! I still feel very guilty about our ‘escape’ through the side door of the cathedral! Missing lunch again we made for a café…..…a café that told us that they did not have any food! In remembrance of when I was last in Dubrovnik before the war we had a glass of šljivovica - its still very strong stuff!
On a previous trip to Dubrovnik, we toured the city on our own. This time we chose a walking tour and we were not disappointed. Maris was able to give us a lot a history of the city along with visiting many of the important sites. We also took the cable car to the top of the hill for a great view of the city. This excursion also allowed for some free time which was greatly appreciated. We were very lucky that the trip ended just as it started to rain.
Started early with bus from the ship, which is docked far from the old city of Dubrovnic.
Went off by the old city, walked the walls of the castle and saw the old city in the morning, before the heat of the sun became hot.
Then we took a local boat, from the old towns small port, 20 minutes to the island of Lokrum, where be had a hike, a bath and suntanning. Nice island with ruins of small castle and monastry, lots of peacook birds, beaches and nude beach.
In the afternoon, we took the cable car to a mountain-top, with a fantastic view over Dubrovnik and the surroundings. Absolutly worth the time and money.
Great overview of city and area. Walking in the city area and within the old walls of the city were interesting and worthwhile.
