    Great guide who had a passionate love for her country and history. The meeting place is about a 10 minute walk after the exit if the port. Turn to the right and walk past the bus station and then about 10 minutes.

    A great tour of the city by a local. Would have been nice to have more free time, so we just took a taxi back to the ship instead of the ride provided by the company.

    We really enjoyed this tour. The guided portion of the tour was great with a lot of great information. We appreciated that at the start of the free time the guide let us know that if we didn't want to go back to the ship right away we didn't have to. We really wanted to walk the walls and this worked out perfectly for us since we ended right at the entrance. This was a great alternative to the busy ship excursions offered.

    It was my impression that the tour company does not have a lot of experience. The pick up arrangements were very poorly described. As it turned out, there were several entrances to the port of Dubrovnik with the sign that said Port of Dubrovnik on each them. The tour company did not specify near which one of these signs we were to meet or that there was more than one of them, so we waited near the one were our ship docked for a long time. Then I needed to make a couple of phone calls to get hooked up with our driver and a guide Elvis. Their office on the phone said that we had to go and look for them, but they did not give clear instructions. They said they could not come and pick us up because there were people from other ships/locations, and they needed to wait for everyone in a central location. When we finally met up with the driver and the guide, they had no one on the bus. So, this was very frustrating! The company did not do any homework in terms of finding out that all the people on the tour were from one ship, and that they could just pick us up in one location, or at least give us clearer instructions where to meet. In addition, it was a rainy day, which made walking around and looking for the mini-van only more difficult. The tour itself turned out to be pretty fare, although we had better ones. The city of Dubrovnik was absolutely beautiful, and I wish we had a better tour guide to explore it with.

    Excellent tour, good service, glad I took this private tour instead of the ships group tour.

    The tour began with a private drive the top of the mountain to take a picture of town. Nice photo ops. Didn't know this was going to happen. When back to town to meet up with the rest of our group of eight. Tour consisting of walking through the old town with guide pointing out interesting buildings and facts. Could've spent more time walking around versus listening to the Tour guide. Tour did not go on the walls around town. Walked that on own. Guide was ok but not easy to hear. Would do it on you own with guidebook

    We had a little walk from the ship to find the tour guide, but fortunately someone answered when we called to direct us to where we needed to be. We were driven, in a minivan, up the highway overlooking the town for a marvelous view, then back down into the old town for a walking tour. Impressive medieval buildings.

    The tour operators were polite and on time, took us on the scenic route of he city and the old town and then left us within the walled city to stroll around, we were picked up on time to be transferred to our cruise ship, verypleased

    A part of our tour was just for the two of us, and then we join a group of about 10 folks. We enjoyed when we could hear the tour operator tell of the history. Dubrovnik is a scenic town worth a visit.
