Do you want to discover the old town and hear about the history of Dubrovnik? We’ve got the perfect tour for you – our Old Town Tour is a great way to get to know the city. We’ll take you through the streets of the old town and show you the main sights. The tour takes an hour and a half and it’s ideal to get your bearings, especially if you’re visiting Dubrovnik for the first time.

The tour is led by a professional licensed tour guide, born and raised in Dubrovnik, who will show you around and tell you what it’s like to live inside the Old town. You’ll see all the most important monuments, palaces and churches of old Dubrovnik. We’ll cover the history of the old Dubrovnik Republic as well as the contemporary issues that make life inside the Old town interesting as well as challenging.

Dubrovnik Local Guides lead small-group tours and on our Old Town Tour there will be a maximum of eight guests per guide. We want to provide a quality tour experience. That’s why we’ve capped our walking tours to just eight. Sometimes there will be four, sometimes five or six; but never more than eight. In such a small group you’ll quickly bond with your fellow travellers and your tour guide.

Our Old Town Tour is the perfect introduction to Dubrovnik. Starting by Ploče gate, we’ll show you the Dominican monastery, the old harbor and the cathedral before we explore the oldest corner of Dubrovnik. You’ll see a 16th century palace where people still live and we’ll tell you about the everyday life of the local community. You will discover curious details along the way and your guide will entertain you with stories and anecdotes from the rich history of Dubrovnik.

You will see all the main attractions on our Old town tour, including the Rector’s palace, the church of St. Blaise, Sponza palace and the bell-tower. We’ll recommend which museums to visit, where to go for lunch and dinner and share some helpful tips and advice on how to make the most of your time in Dubrovnik.
