Dubrovnik City Tour Excursion Reviews

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.
We signed up for a city tour outside the walls of the Old Town.

We signed up for a city tour outside the walls of the Old Town. While the views were wonderful, the driver was rushed to get us through the sights as quickly as possible before rushing us to the next so that he could get back and picked up another tour group. So it was a bit hair-raising but we got to see some interested sights so probably worth it! Read Less

Dubrovnik Scenic Cruise and Old Town City Tour — Adult Only DepartureWe 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). Read Less

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! Read Less

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. Read Less

Croatian Riviera and Dubrovnik. All of the stops were well thought out, and our guide was excellent. The Riviera town was really left for us to explore at our own pace, which allowed us a chance to get some great photos and buy a few very reasonably priced souvenirs. The stop for a light lunch was at a rural mill, served by people in regional costumes. The tables were outdoors and the setting was lovely. The historic city tour was a walking tour. The pavement, worn down by 100s of years of foot traffic, is very slippery and I saw more than one person slip and fall down. Shopping opportunities were plentiful during the free time after the tour, and the prices were very affordable. Read Less

The tour guides did not make themselves easily identifiable so had to make a couple of local phone calls before locating her. We visited a local mill and were shown how they use water power to grind grain and pulp wool, given a local drink and a couple of open sandwiches. We were then taken to a local port where it was recommended we walk around the promontory. We decided not to do the walk and sat and ate an ice cream instead. The most important part of the tour should have been the walled city of Dubrovnik, and we were then told it wasn't on the itinerary. We asked to be dropped off anyway and to be honest it was the best part of the day, the city is excellent and well worth a visit. Read Less

Our first port of call was Dubrovnik, Croatia, on August 6, 2012. We booked the shore excursion DU10 Highlights of Dubrovnik Riviera. The stop at the Konavoski Dvori Restaurant was a bit of a throwaway as we spent nearly all of our allotted time there waiting in a very long line for the bathroom. We managed to snap a few photos and eat a quick snack of local ham, cheese, bread, wine, which was very nice, but hurried. I do wish the bathroom situation there had been better, as it was a picturesque spot - an old mill next to the Ljuta River. Cavtat was a beautiful seaside village, very lovely, scenic, although for us, frankly the highlight of this excursion came after our children took the bus back to the ship, leaving my husband and I to explore Dubrovnik on our own. We discovered the most charming local jeweler inside the old city, inside the wall; here is their information - BENI, vi Toma Barisa, Od Puca 25. It was a family run store, the son, his wife, and the 'old man'. I found a pair of traditional Dubrovnik Puca/Kolarin earrings - round silver balls, fairly ornate but also simple at the same time. I wasn't happy with the length of the hook, so the 'old man' in his broken English with the help of his daughter-in-law, completely replaced the hooks, put in a chain - all very nice, and extremely reasonably priced. My husband and I then walked the entire wall of the old city, up and down, in blistering heat, but loved every minute, finding the views unparalleled. He and I then grabbed the Celebrity shuttle outside of the walls and returned to the ship on our own. That is something crucial to know about nearly all of the Celebrity excursions - usually, you don't need to return to the ship with your actual guide/bus - the ship nearly always runs shuttles to the key destinations and you can leave your shore excursion and return to the ship on your own - very handy!
