Traveler pickup is offered
Departure Point: Pile Square
There are two ports in Dubrovnik. If the ship docks at Dubrovnik Old Town anchorage you will have to take a tender to the Old Town Pier. From here, go inside the Old Town and walk up the main street (Placa Stradun) for approximately 300 meters to the West Side Exit at Pile Square. Here you will exit the Old Town (outside of the city walls) and you will be in Pile Square. A guide in Elite Travel blue T-shirt will be holding a EXPLORE DUBROVNIK BY CABLE CAR sign, next to the fountain by Dubravka bar restaurant (just outside Pile gate, western entrance to Old town). If the ship docks in port of Gruz, you will have to take a shuttle or taxi to Pile Square. The driving time from the pier to Pile Square is approximately 7 minutes. Note that the price of the taxi or shuttle is not included in the cost of the tour.

Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Get double the fun with this shore excursion by booking this combo tour. The tour begins when you leave Dubrovnik’s port and head to the cable car station. Ascend to the top of Mt Srđ, a 1,352-foot (412-meter) mound that affords for incredible views of the walled Old Town and the crystal blue Adriatic Sea. On a clear day, you can see as far as 37 miles (67 miles) out into the Adriatic. 

Take an hour or so to drink in the view and then head back down to the Old Town to begin the second phase of the tour. With your local guide by your side, you'll hit all the best sights in the city, starting with Onofrio’s Fountain, a large circular structure with faucets that was the terminus for the 7.5-mile (12-km) aqueduct that flowed drinking water into Dubrovnik. Then walk over to the nearby Franciscan Monastery that houses a recently restored Pieta sculpture and one of the oldest still-functioning pharmacies in Europe. 

After learning about the history of the monastery, slowly make your way down the Stradun, a wide — by Old Town standards — limestone-clad pedestrian street. As you pass the narrower intersecting lanes look up at how high each street climbs before being met by the 12th-century walls. 

When you reach Sponza Palace, on the other end of the Stradun, stop and listen to your guide regale you with historical facts and anecdotes about the pretty Renaissance-era palace, which houses today the vast state archives. 

Other sites you’ll see include the Rector’s Palace, Orlando’s Column, the city cathedral and the Church of St Blaise, a sanctuary dedicated to Dubrovnik’s beloved patron saint. 

Worry-free Shore Excursion: We will ensure your excursion ends with ample time for you to return to Dubrovnik port for your ship’s departure. In the extremely unlikely event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. If your ship is delayed and you are unable to attend this activity, your money will be refunded. See our terms and conditions for full details.

We had a great tour of Dubrovnik. Our tour guide was great and really informative. Unfortunately it was a little busy getting up the cable cars as it was a Saturday and there were lots of tourists but all in all it was a great tour and was as great way to see Dubrovnik Thanks!

What a perfect 3 hour tour. Our local guide was fantastic (I’m so sorry I’ve forgotten her name). Wonderful history and walking tour of Old Town Dubrovnik, which exceeded our expectations. Due to weather the cable car wasn’t working however our guide did not miss a beat and gave us an incredible view with local perspective. Thank you so much.

This is a easy walking tour of old town and a cable car ride to the top of the mountain overlooking old town Dubrovnik and you can see a long ways into other countries. The view is fantastic and the guild knew the city and the history so it was great to get the exposure. After the tour you have time to explore on your own

Good from afar

The first part of the tour viewing Dubrovnik from the top of the hill using the cable car was great. It afforded us any opportunity to view the city from above with a great panorama. The rest of the walking tour was not so great. It was too hot and it was difficult to understand the tour guide. We left the tour early with others leaving too. The city was also too crowded for this type of tour.

Dubrovnik was very picturesque and we loved how this tour highlighted its features. Our guide was very knowledgeable and did her best to maneuver us through the crowds and find us shade so she could talk about what we were seeing. Initially she did not pace the tour for the slowest members as Dubrovnik is hilly, sidewalks are not very wide and it was extremely hot so some people petered out quickly. The wall is not for the faint of heart but worth it. I recommend it over what was being offered through the cruise ship for more money.

Tour guide was very funny and shared all the history of her city with us. She showed us how to take the bus back to our cruise ship for much less then the cab fare.

Tour starting time needs to be coordinated better with shore time when you tie it to a sure excursion. We laned at 7:00 am, but tour didn't start nail 9:00 am. We had to cut short the city part of tour to return to our ship in time. Guide was delightful, but again, we missed part of the city tour. Views from the top of the cable car were fabulous of the walled city.

Unfortunately it rained during our tour, but the tour guide I think her name was Maria was super friendly and informative and didn't let a small thing like rain keep us from enjoying the sights of the city. Loved It!
