Overview

Enjoy jaw-dropping views from atop Mt Srđ, the tall rocky mountain that towers over Dubrovnik’s Old Town, and then stroll the streets of the ciyt with your guide, stopping at the town’s famed sights and landmarks and learning about the intriguing history of Dubrovnik.
  • Dubrovnik shore excursion by cable car
  • Enjoy stunning views over Dubrovnik from the cable car ride up Mount Srd
  • Walking tour through Dubrovnik’s Old Town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • English-speaking guide
  • Covered by Viator's worry-free policy: guaranteed on-time return to your ship
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.

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.

Loved our guide. She was great. Cable car is a must. Great view. City walking tour was good, but would have liked more. Would recommend though.

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!

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.

tour guide was not very good. cable car was closed due to weatherwind the day we were there. viator did refund the cost of the cable car ride. we hired a local cab driver to take us to the top which is well worth the trip. For this location you're best bet would be to hire a local cabbie to take you around and see all the sites. you can pretty much tour the unesco site on you're own and walking the wall is an extra fee any way. when we arrive our cabbie taking us to the tour meet point would have given the four of us a tour of the island for 50 euros. that's a better deal than we got.
