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.

Brilliant kayaking trip… great way to explore a little of the local area and an island! Your guises were fab. Good there was an option of a longer or shorter route. Good pace. About 8k in total. Water and a wee fruit snack was helpful. Take cash, the beach bar at one of the stops doesn’t accept cards so we missed out on a wee ice cream n coffee.

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.

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

Desa was so knowledgeable and personable she made the tour so engaging and informative! I highly recommend
