Stradun - once a sea channel, which separated the city in two parts, today the town's main street, paved with smooth stone blocks.
Church of St. Blaise ( St.Vlaho ) - Dubrovnik's most beautiful temple erected in honor of St.Blaise, whose golden statue with a scale model in his hand from the 15th century is now kept in the church.
The city walls and fortresses - untouched, sends a distinctive image to the world and turns Dubrovnik into the most beautiful city in the Mediterranean.
Sponza Palace - once the state money forge and most important meeting place for traders and other business people, once a cultural center of Dubrovnik Republic, today the archives of Dubrovnik's history and the center of cultural events in the city.
Starting from main meeting point in Split or at your hotel, we'll begin our full day experience discovering the fabled walled city of Dubrovnik, UNESCO World Heritage site.
Our air-conditioned coach takes the scenic route along the new highway and as we slowly move to the coastal road it opens up the amazing panoramic views of Dalmatian islands and the wonderful delta of the river Neretva with the endless fruit and vegetables fields which represent the main living economy of this beautiful area.
We will arrive to Dubrovnik before noon. Each corner of this legendary city is its own unique experience. Our professionally guided tour is led by a local resident with years of experience whose passion for the city will be evident as you walk through these ancient streets and marvel to the rich architectural ensemble all around you. The guided tour lasts for about an hour and a half and afterwards you have enough time to re-visit the main attractions of the Old Town and enjoy a local cafe or many crafts and shops. This memorable excursion through Croatia's most famous medieval city begins at the monumental Pile Gate, located at the top of Stradun, the splendid main promenade street of the Old Town. We keep walking to the Franciscan Monastery, whose cloister is one of the most magnificent sites in the city and then to the oldest pharmacy in Europe opened in 1317. A little further is the Sponza Palace, notable for its portico with columns and elaborate stone carvings which today houses the State Archives. Our tour ends with a visit to the Cathedral which was built on the ruins of a 12th C church but then destroyed by the great earthquake in 1667. Having experienced the most important parts of the Old Town, there's time to go back and explore its hidden corners by yourself. Feel free to climb the stairs to the walls that allow you to walk around the Old Town from high up on its ramparts; or take a cable car for a stunning view of the famous red tile roofs and the sea. Dubrovnik is yours to discover! On the way back to Split we also visit Ston, known as the gate of the Dubrovnik Republic whose 5,5 km 15th cent. defensive stone walls used to protect this area from the enemies. Ston is known worldwide for its famous fresh oysters - with time to enjoy these seafood delicacies (optional).
Join us and discover why Dubrovnik is considered to be a true Adriatic pearl!

Very professional service from the organisation.
Dubrnovik - simply beautiful!
I would like also to thank Ivan (driver to Dubrovnik) for being such a humble and nice guy as well as for speaking to us and giving us information about Croatia; I'm sure it wasn't his duty to do so but he did. We appreciate that.
Keep it up!!!
Malta guys ;)
Our guide and driver, Igor and Andre, were both top notch. We learned so much and were so well taken care of.
The office staff was very professional and helpful in all aspects of our inquiries and booking.
We highly recommend this tour to all others. All 4 of us felt it was a valuable and enjoyable tour. To answer Igor's final question at the end of the tour, which we could not answer at the time because of too little exposure to Split, Split is our choice between the two cities as most interesting and enjoyable even though we also loved Dubrovnik.
Thank you for a wonderful experience and valuable primer and backdrop to our nearly 4 weeks in Croatia. We are currently in Istria and loving it too - what a country!
You should be proud and optimistic for its future.
A fantastic experience!!! Our tour guide Tiho was amazing, he had a wealth of knowledge and a true passion for making our day a stand out. Whilst in Europe we went on many tours, however, this was the best by far! I would reccomend Split Excursions and our wonderful guide Tiho :)
Our guide Igor and the bus driver Tico were both excellent.
