The Free Dubrovnik Walking Tour wins the Best Free Tour Worldwide Award
By: Freetour.com GmbH
The prize has been granted by FREETOUR.com, the online booking platform for free and budget activities all over the world. The platform celebrates these awards annually and chooses the best tours and tour operators based on travelers' reviews and ratings online. This way, the winners are always chosen by verified users who have participated in the tours and rate their experience on the platform.
The tour is operated by a local guide, Marco. He takes pride in his love and knowledge of his hometown and offers to tailor the tour to fit his travelers' interests. This flexibility is deeply appreciated by users, who share their enthusiastic opinions on the platform's reviews.
One of the highlights of the tour is a visit to the Lovrijenac Fortress. This impressive stone fort was built back in the 11th century to defend the city, and it is located on the top of a 37-meter high rock overlooking the sea. As Dubrovnik is a walled city, another iconic stop is the Minceta Tower, which can be found on the North wall ending and offers panoramic views of the city and the sea.
The tour also includes a stop in the Jesuit Stairs, nowadays known around the world as the filming location of the Walk of shame scene from the famous series Game Of Thrones. These baroque stairs lead to the church of Saint Ignatius and were designed by the Roman architect Pietro Passalacqua.
It is true that this tour stops in the most attractive spots in the city, but this is not the only asset that makes it the best in the world. Marco's explanations are engaging and fun and include anecdotes about the people and the culture of the city. Users have also stated that he makes some comparisons between old and recent history so travelers can better understand Dubrovnik's past and present, along with the city's customs and traditions.
