In recent decades its visitors have included a swarm of A-list celebrities. And its renown has only increased since it has become a filming location for movies and TV shows like Star Wars and Game of Thrones. We specialize in arranging tours by well-informed locals in Dubrovnik that will make your time in this gem of a town even more magical. Together, our staff has many years of experience in tourism, and you can count on your travel guide to be friendly, articulate and steeped in the kind of local knowledge that will take your visit to another level.

No matter which walking tour you book be ready to discover some hidden gems along the way. All our guides are officialy licensed and passionate about Dubrovnik and whatever comes with it. This city has so much to offer to fill several bucket lists. So many things to do and to experience, places to visit and many more stories to tell. This beautifully preserved UNESCO site, surrounded by battlements, built to protect the inside with baroque churches and grand palaces speak of the splendour of a town that was once a wealthy republic in its own right.
Every era like a fascinating chapter of a captivating story. Wander past quaint limestone houses with shuttered windows, along narrow alleys and up flights of time-weathered stone steps and listen to a unique history full of surprising facts, entertaining legends and funny tales. There is a reason why Lord Byron, British poet and leading figure of the Romantic movement once proclaimed it the “Pearl of the Adriatic”. A few centuries later another literary fan, playwright and Noble Prize winner George Bernard Shaw put it this way: “Those who seek paradise on earth should come to Dubrovnik.” We show you why!
