Dubrovnik Cable Car Excursion Reviews

The original Dubrovnik cable car was built back in 1969 and was used by visitors and the locals who wanted to enjoy a magnificent view of Dubrovnik Old City and the surrounding area. Until the war in 1991, more than 2.5 million people were transferred to the top of Srdj Hill. After its destruction in the war, it remained in disrepair until it was restored and reopened in 2010.
Lots of steps in hot weather but worth doing.
Sail Date: July 2019
Lots of steps in hot weather but worth doing. I declined the rest of the tour to museums as I had just wanted to do the cable car and wander around myself.

Dubrovnik is a gem!
Sail Date: September 2018
Dubrovnik is a gem! View from the cable car over the old town to the sea was spectacular. Then a guide took us for a walk around the city walls, explaining history as she went. We had time to grab a drink before coach back to the ship.

This place is stunning. However it was very busy and traffic didn’t flow very quickly so make sure you have plenty of time.

Beautiful and charming. Great tour guide who was enthusiastic and lived in the walled city. Enjoyed the sights, food, and people. Very easy to get into from the ship, no hassles entering of leaving Croatia, or any hassles there. Our tour guide did warn us to be aware of pick pockets. We did not encounter any problems, and appreciated someone warning of a potential problem as opposed to trying to cover up the fact that they sometimes have problems (just like any other place that has a lot of tourists.) I original thought Croatia, maybe we will make those days stay on ship days - but am glad we went. Would definitely go back! Read Less

Not long at this port of call so head straight through the walled city to the cable car. Amazing views from the top of Dubrovnik and the walled city. Look around the bombed buildings up at the top of the hill, that were destroyed as soon as 1991-1995 war! Wish there was longer in this port of call as it was the best of the week! Not everywhere accepted EURO though! And ATMS auotmatically let you take out 800KUNA which is over £100!! Read Less

The only down side is that every cruise ship tour has a stop here so it was terribly crowded which dampened the experience. Read Less
