Our tour guide, Gellana (hope I have spelt that right), was really friendly and full of knowledge. We learnt so much about the city walls and the city itself, which made the walls walk really interesting and memorable. Dubrovnik is a truly beautiful city and the views from the walls are incredible, you get to see so much more with Gellana’s informative guide as she pointed out so much along the walk, which you just wouldn’t see without a guide. Well worth it.

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.

Evo was fabulous. He was on time, very knowledgeable, very personable and FUN. We got more than we ever imagined from this tour. Imagine your tour guide talking about Game of Thrones and than showing you a picture of where he was in a scene.

Jelena was amazing! Very kind and knowledgeable. She loves her city. The walk of the walls was stunning and informative. I recommend doing this as one of the first things you do in Dubrovnik
