About
On our tour you will see the most significant attractions of Dubrovnik. I will interpret various themes from the life in the former Republic of Dubrovnik which was independent for almost five centuries. This walk is not meant to be one way interpretation, but more a conversational, where you can ask me anything you would like to know about the history of Dubrovnik or nowadays life in the city, including things about Game of Thrones if you are a fan. During the tour, we will visit one of the oldest palace in Dubrovnik. The people who own it are the locals and they still live in that palace. They are also my friends and just for this experience they will let us inside their home, so you can see firsthand how the life of locals looks like. There you will be treated with homemade liqueurs. The purpose of this visit is also contribution to the preservation and the restoration of the palace and furniture itself. Attending this experience you are supporting local community!

Excellent Walking tour
Sep 2021 • Solo
Pavo was an excellent tour guide! He was super knowledgeable about the history of Dubrovnik and Croatia in general and was able to put context behind all of the buildings we saw from its original purpose to how it is used today/changed over time. He was very gracious and willing to cater it to my interests. I’d highly recommend him to anyone that wants a walking tour of Dubrovnik!

Personalized experience that makes you to feel less like a tourist
Sep 2021 • Couples
We had a great time with Pavo and highly recommend him as a guide! The tour included a really interesting mix of history from different eras in Dubrovnik, including the city’s origins, architecture and development, military and diplomatic history, its integration into Croatia, and events during the war in the 1990’s. We learned about major monuments but we also saw parts of the city that are not accessible to the public. We got to sample some locally made candies and treats, which were delicious. Best of all, Pavo was willing to answer any questions we had about Dubrovnik and about contemporary life in the city and in Croatia, which made the experience feel personalized and was much better than any typical tour. He also gave great recommendations for local activities, restaurants, and books about Dubrovnik.

Walking tour with Pavo
Sep 2021 • Friends
We did the Dubrovnik Walking Tour with Pavo and it was fantastic! Pavo grew up in Dubrovnik so he has a broad knowledge and was able to guide us through the old town with humour and lots of interesting facts and stories. He got us to feel like we've stepped back in time and were part of the living history of the beautiful old town. He even got us to visit a medieval palace and we got to try some Croatian wine made by the palace owner.

I’ll definitely recommend his tours, he is great at what he does.

Great private tour of Dubrovnik!
Aug 2021 • Solo
Such an amazing tour! We learned about the history of Dubrovnik, and got to go inside a former aristocratic home which is now the home to a local Dubrovnik woman. We got to drink homemade local liquor as well! Pavo was an excellent guide and showed us famous sights as well as hidden gems in the city. He told us interesting facts about Croatia and the city, and even threw in a few game of thrones filming facts. He provided restaurant and bar recommendations too which were fabulous. Thank you!! Would definitely recommend

Great local tour guide - well connected to Dubrovnik community
Aug 2021 • Family
Pavo grew up in Dubrovnik and is really well connected with the local community. He has a deep knowledge of the history of Dubrovnik. He was engaging in his stories and he was not only interesting for us but also for our two kids (age 11&6). Pavo English is perfect, very easy to understand. He recommended for us several good places to eat and things to do whilst we were there. We would highly recommend Pavo!

Personable private tour with a local!
Aug 2021 • Couples
Pavo was referred to us by another local tour guide and he did an amazing job at arranging a private history walking tour. He did a great job answering all of our questions and giving us a very informative history of the old city as well as a perspective on more recent history. Going with a local was well worth it! We would highly recommend this tour for anyone looking to learn more about the history of the city.

Eye-opening, funny and clever trip around old town.
Sep 2020 • Couples
Had a private walking history tour with Pavo, it was absolutely brilliant and really worthwhile. We could ask lots of questions and found him so knowledgeable about all things Dubrovnik and throughout the tour he was engaging, funny, chatty and really amenable to what we were looking for. He showed us things and explained things that we would never have found by ourselves - or in any guidebook. A real highlight of our trip and all thanks to Pavo. Genuinely could not recommend this tour enough.

Fantastic Tour
We had a lovely afternoon with Pavo, showing us around the old town of Dubrovnik. It was clear from the start that he had a fantastic knowledge of the history of his home town. His tour included a visit to a privately owned palace where we were given homemade liqueur and locally dried figs. Would not hesitate to recommend Pavo!!
