Our early morning working tour was fabulous! Our tour guide was called Marcela who was welcoming, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. We learnt lots about Croatian History and the best places to visit in the Old Town - which was helpful as we were at the start of our holiday so we could plan ahead on the recommendations! Doing the tour in the morning was great as the temperate was cool and there was no crowds! 100% would recommend.

We took the early morning city walls tour hosted by Michaela, the tour was really interesting and Michaela was very knowledgeable and passionate about the subject which made it all the more enjoyable for us. We definately recommend this tour to other travellers as you get to see parts of the old town that as a tourist you may miss and the quieter city makes it a more enjoyable and intimate experience.

Please book this excursion, if in Croatia. Montenegro was like visiting a fairytale land. My guide Alex was the best. I’m glad I got to have him as my guide. He drove his comfortable vehicle safely, he was courteous and I felt like he was enjoying the visit just as I was. You have to take your passport because you have to cross the border. I’m glad I took advantage of the opportunity.

guide was very knowledgable and personable. Fun, off-road experience into a part of Croatia not usually seen. Overall, a great experience!

Overall great experience! An excellent way to see a different side of Dubrovnik.
