    Karalina was attentive to the five of us on this tour. Her personal recollections of the Homeland War were chilling, especially as we are the same age so her stories of evacuation from her home to live in the safety of a hotel, family being injured, playing for hot shrapnel as the bombs dropped were in stark contrast to my childhood in the UK where I saw the bbc news reports.
    I applaud her for her in depth knowledge and neutrality over the warring factions, her explanations were factual and concise.

    We didn’t walk much, I was hoping for more exploring of the narrow side streets, but the content of ancient and modern history gave really fascinating context to the tumultuous history of the city.

    Following this tour we went onto the city walls and I was pleased to have learnt from her as we could see the evidence of the bombings more clearly, along with the older architectural narrative of the city.

    Given this is real factual history of Dubrovnik I would take this over an HBO tour any day.

    The small group was a great size. Would definitely recommend for anyone interested in understanding the history of Dubrovnik.

    Small group, almost private tour with very knowledgeable guide. Not just history, but traditions, culture, food. We loved it.

    We were very privileged to be only 3 in our French walking tour. Our French guide and Croatian born guide went beyond her duties and took us to special spots were a big tour would not go. Her passion for her country made this walking tour truly exceptional.

    Tour was excellent. We had previously been in the town for 2 days giving us a chance to explore the city on our own before we had taken the tour. During the tour we found out many things that were missed during our own exploration. Some of this was done on the tour or pointed out for further explanation after. Also the local guide was able to give several good recommendations for shopping and eating afterwards.

    We took the tour that takes place on Thursdays at 1PM, which was perfect because our ferry from Split arrived at 12pm. We had just enough time to check into our apartment and get to the meeting place by the fountain in the square by Pile gate. We were extremely lucky because we were the only 2 people on the tour. Our guide was awesome! She was extremely knowledgeable regarding the history of the city and showed a great deal of national pride when speaking about here beautiful country. She gave us so much information and insight into the town. It was a great way to start off our 3 days in Dubrovnik. We carried her knowledge with us as we explored the city further on our own. This walking tour of the city is a must do for anyone interested in the history of the town.
