Full description

Get to the city walls as soon as the gates open on this guided walking tour in Dubrovnik. Uncover the secrets of this must-see city sight on a shared or a private tour. Capture pictures of sweeping views from the top of the Minceta Tower. 

Meet your guide at a centrally-located meeting point and begin your early morning adventure. As you walk, learn from your guide about how the wall was built. Listen to exciting legends and funny tales about the city.  

Get started by climbing some steps in the cool morning air to be rewarded with a breathtaking panoramic view of the main street of Stradun and the skyline of the Old Town. 

Stroll along 2 kilometers of the wall to enjoy beautiful landscapes of the sparkling Adriatic Sea and a skyline that still speaks of the splendor of a town that was a wealthy republic for 450 years. 

See how the wall is six meters deep in some places and pass by forts looking out to both sea and land. End your tour at the highest point along the wall, the top of Minceta Tower, where the view is not to be missed.

Had a fantastic time on this early morning tour, it's the perfect time to see the city- it's quiet and the views are lovely. The tour guide was amazing and gave us the most in-depth history of the city that I had throughout my time there. It can be tiring as there are a lot of steps but it is completely worth it! :)

This was an excellent tour aided by a most knowledgeable and personable guide. Darko took his time in explaining everything, nothing was too much trouble. He was obviously someone who enjoyed his role and made the tour a most enjoyable experience. However beware the wall can be quite a taxing walk with many steps and steep gradients.

Punctually at 8.00 a.m. we were greeted in a friendly manner by Mateo at the meeting point. After brief information about the history of the country, or rather of Dubrovnik, we went on the two-hour tour. Mateo was able to tell us the history of the city in a very interesting way.
