Departing Pile Square on foot with your guide, you will walk towards the cable car station situated outside the Old Town of Dubrovnik. Upon arrival, you will board your cable car and ascend to a panoramic view of Dubrovnik from Srd Hill. From your bird's - eye view, you will be able to take in the beauty of the coastal area as well as gaze down on the entire city, including its centuries - old walled city.
After descending back to the lower cable car station, your tour guide will lead you by foot to the Old Town of Dubrovnik, where you will walk through one of the largest and most luxurious open - air museum towns in existence. The famous Croatian tourist center awaits you, encircled by its monumental stone ramparts, which have preserved and enhanced Dubrovnik's spirit of Renaissance. You will be awed by the labyrinth of short, narrow stone streets, the marketplace, palaces, towers, monasteries and houses, each of which is over 300 years old!
The old masters understood how to construct a miraculously harmonious stone city. This harmony, simplicity and sense of beauty have, through the ages, become the basic philosophy of life for the residents of Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik was the bridge and diplomatic liaison between the east and west. It has been subject to fires and catastrophic earthquakes, but has always risen again like the phoenix to retain its renown as a world - famous treasury of cultural monuments. During your tour, your guide will stop outside of many of the Old Town's most impressive buildings, and give you more details on their history, design and importance.

In general, it was a good excursion although it was a little more walking than we expected. We arrived at the meeting point about a half hour before the time of the excursion, and since there was no guide there, we thought we were in the wrong place. So we asked around and were told there was another fountain on the other side of the wall so we went over there and ended up coming back. Perhaps someone should specify the "small" fountain.

People should be informed that Croatia does not accept Euros. We needed water but could not buy one. I forgot to mention this in my first review.

Excellent walking tour experiencewith great views from the top of cable car. The only downside was the transportation to and from Dubrovnik with long lines for either taxis or buses.

This was a great way to get an overview of the old town plus seeing how close the neighbouring countries are to this part of Croatia

Our local guide was excellent and spoke perfect English, even though she has never been to the USA. Clearly, she is very proud of her country and did a wonderful job describing all that we saw. This is a great introduction to the old city of Dubrovnik.
