The medieval Republic of Ragusa, now Dubrovnik, once rivaled Venice in maritime might. Its famous walls, medieval monasteries, and large cathedral are among the sights included on a tour of this fairytale city.
The guided tour part was fine and our guide was knowledgeable but it was only 2 hours of the described 3.5 hours tour. The remaining 90 minutes was on your own before getting back on the bus. There was also a shuttle if you got done early or stayed later.
Best 20 euros spent. The city is a bit removed from the cruise port. These people provided a shuttle to the city. Allowed for a couple hours of self led tour and then hopped again on the van to visit the top of the mountain with views down to the city
A lovely place with a very good tour guide. Loved the place I knew little about before arriving. The sailing ship from the dock to the walled city was a highlight of the cruise. A place we will definitely return to
Croatian Riviera and Dubrovinik tour. While the Old Town is really worth seeing, we would just do the $15 shuttle from the ship if we were to go again. Tons of traffic to get to the Old Town. It probably took over an hour to get there and we had very bad weather . The trip to Cavtat was a long bus ride and once you arrive there is not much to see or do except view the boats in harbor and get a coffee or gelato. Then they drive you to a pretty old mill restaurant with the worst service and food I have ever encountered. It is not on the way to anything so you drive way out of the way and we had to wait 30 minutes for a small glass of local wine and a ham and cheese sandwich which is the only options you have. Do yourself a favor and skip this tour but do go see the Old Town.
Too short a time in port, and with 40 people on the tour no time to do anything in depth. Much time spent at the granary museum and the maritime museum when there are much more beautiful and interesting things to do in the town.

Interesting tour of the old town and the guide was good not great. Went for lunch at a mill in the country. Absolutely the best vegetable soup I have every had. The grilled trout was delicious. Tour of Cavtat was also very beautiful.
