Know More about this tour

Meet your private guide at Dubrovniks cruise ship port, and then climb inside your air-conditioned transfer vehicle and enjoy a leisurely journey to the base of Mt Sr, the 1,352-foot (412-meter) mountain that towers over the city. As you travel, ask your guide any questions you have; the beauty of a private tour is that the commentary is tailored to your interests.

On arrival, board a cable car for a panoramic ride up the side of Mt Sr. Take in the stunning aerial views of the city and the Dalmatian Coast as you ascend the mountain. At the summit, step out of the car and gaze out at the jaw-dropping views from the two panoramic terraces it is said that on a clear day you can see sights up to 37 miles (67km) away.

Spend a few moments snapping photos, and then perhaps head to the snack bar or restaurant to refuel with a drink and some food (own expense). There is also a souvenir shop where you can buy gifts, if you so wish. After exploring the summit, hop back inside the cable car for your return trip down Mt Sr.

Back on the ground, follow your guide to Dubrovnik Old Town. As you meander through the maze of cobbled streets and narrow passageways, learn of the areas rich cultural and historical significance.

See the circular Onofrio's Fountain and amble past Sponza Palace. Walk across the main square to see the Baroque Cathedral of the Assumption, which was rebuilt in the 18th century following an earthquake. Other highlights include Rectors Palace and the Church of St Blaise.

After your walking tour, hop back inside your transfer vehicle and return to the port in time for your cruise departure.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • There were 6 in our group, and we were picked up by a driver who drove us to the bottom of the cable car where we met our guide Marina. The cable car was not running due to heavy winds, so Marina arranged for us to be driven to the top of the cable car after our city tour so we could still enjoy the view. Marina gave us a 1.5 hour walking tour of the old city, giving us much interesting historical information, showing us specialty shops that we never would have seen on our own and taking us to a coral shop with a demonstration. Since she also did the Game of Thrones tour, she worked much of the Game of Thrones sites into our tour, which made the fans in my group happy. It was obvious that Marina was very proud of her country and it's history. Marina was delightful. During our tour, she pointed out several restaurants so that we were able to enjoy a wonderful lunch and then had some free time before we met the driver again.

  • This was a good tour and the guide was very knowledgeable.

  • Unfortunately we had bad weather the day we were in Dubrovnik. The cable car was not running, and it was raining so hard that it was hard to tour the old city.

    I was under the impression when we booked this tour, after speaking with Viator, that we had a private tour for the 6 hours, and that we would have the van at our disposal and we could somewhat dictate what we saw. In reality, the van was only available for part of the time as the tour company had other trips to do during the time of our tour, and also the guide in the city had a specific thing to show us and then was done.

    The guides were both extremely nice and professional, and I would rate them highly.

    I can still recommend this tour, but be aware its not really like having a private guide at your disposal, you must stick to the tour agenda and the van is not available the whole duration.
