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.

Marko was the most exceptional guide we have ever had on our countless tours of dozens of European cities...he is simply the "best of the best". And the tour was phenomenal ... well organized, informative and a great introduction to Dubrovnik. It exceeded our very high expectations especially for the valued added low cost aspects.

We were looking for a city walls tour but it was confusing especially with the existance of many tour companies, till we found this tour that had a convinient starting time. We enjoyed it and the guid shared with us a lot of the history behind the great walls and made the tour worth it.

Fantastic experience! Our guides were so informative and accommodating to us for the whole day. An absolute must-do if you're in Dubrovnik. So cool to hear from the perspective of someone on the set.

If you want a brief history of Dubrovnik and Croatia then this is the one for you. Informative but certainly not boring and very interesting and educational.
