What You Can Expect

Dubrovnik Shore Excursion: Explore Dubrovnik by Cable Car

Dubrovnik Shore Excursion: Explore Dubrovnik by Cable Car

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2018

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.

Dubrovnik was a like a step back in time, great guide, good insight, and very clean. Took the cable car up and the views where spectacular. Seen where Game of Thrones was being filmed, and walked the fort walls with great camera shots everywhere. Highly recommend.

Our young lady guide was excellent. She led the small group at a comfortable pace, and took care to choose stopping places where we could enjoy shade and relative quiet whilst she pointed out places of interest along the way and explained the ancient and recent history of the city.
At our designated start time, Dubrovnik was hit by a heavy rain shower. Our guide happily re-scheduled the tour an hour later to ensure that the weather improved, and then gave up her own time afterwards to ensure that we still got the full time and value. We were delighted by her consideration and commitment.

We had a wonderful time in Dubrovnik. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The cable car ride was fun and provided spectacular views from the top. The Old town was incredible beautiful and had so much history and so much to see. Loved the atmosphere and sitting at the Buzo bar. Excursion was well worth it and we enjoyed it very much. Just loved Dubrovnik....a hidden gem!
