About
The uniqueness of Dubrovnik lies in its history and cultural heritage, while its modern lifestyle mirrors a strong spiritual identity, historical imprint, and presence within European culture. Rich history is alive in every part of the city – at the same time a museum city and a live stage, it represents a perfect cross between the past and the present. Every corner of this Pearl of the Adriatic hides a treasure. Protected by UNESCO World Heritage status since 1979, Dubrovnik is surrounded by 1,940 metres of unique medieval ramparts preserved in their original form that are open to visitors as the city's main attraction. The congress and incentive segments have gradually been developing since the very beginning of tourism in Dubrovnik, which is considered to be in 1887 with the opening of the Imperial hotel. Records show that the first international conference was held in Dubrovnik that same year. From then onwards tourism developed at a faster rate, and since the early 1970s, it has

I always try to use the local information bureaus and this one was very good.
Its also right by the Pile bus stop / Pile gate to the old city so is really handy when coming to visit the old town area.
They gave us a lot of help in not only things to do in Dubrovnik and helped us with the Dubrovnik card, they also helped us with our driving trip up the coast of Croatia and up to Zagreb.
Really want to thank the team here as they were really helpful.
There was also lots of brochures and information to take in the building. They also helped out with maps as well.

Went to the tourist information center outside the pile gate on 3 occasions over the space of 2 days. First occasion the we had only arrived and were looking for a small bit of information about the area. She didn’t even want to speak to us. Second occasion my girlfriend was looking for a close by chemist, she didn’t know any chemist close to us. We then googled and found a chemist inside the old town. On 3rd occasion we looked for info on bus to top of mountain as cable car was closed. She threw a timetable at us, once again she didn’t want to speak to us and she continued to go on her phone. Honestly the most unhelpful staff I’ve ever met. Really disappointing considering it’s a beautiful city. Highly recommend googling information as the workers we dealt with were completely unhelpful.

My terrible experiences with the Dubrovnik Tourist Board might be because it's off season? I have been there several times and was shocked at how unhelpful and uninterested they were. It is winter and many of the businesses and restaurants are closed. In my opinion, the attitudes of the people working (?) there need a serious adjustment. If they find tourists particularly annoying during winter - why don't they just close the place?

Just visited the tourist office outside the walls of the old city in Dubrovnik. Went in as independent travellers seeking information on the City Wall walk and had to fight my way to the desk past a scrum of local tour guides. The staff were really only interested in talking to these guides and handing out maps, brochures etc to them rather than making any effort to speak to tourists. Eventually I almost had to interrupt a flirty conversation between a tour guide and a member of staff to ask about how one gained access to the walls. She scowled at me and then mumbled something in Croatian while waving her hand in the direction of the city. I took a map leaflet from the counter and squeezed out the door into a crowded footpath and basically followed the crowd.
Be prepared to be bold in order to get help in these offices. Spoke to other tourists who confirmed that these offices were only for picking up leaflets rather than getting any personal help.
Could do a lot more to help the beleaguered tourist but then hey, they have plenty of tourists to choose from so they don’t seem to care....or perhaps they were just having a bad day.
Anyhow found the entrance to the walls, paid my 200 Kuna and thoroughly recommend taking the time to make this a must see in your Dubrovnik trip.....fabulous to step back into time.

This is a beautiful country with beautiful sea views. But that’s is. It’s painfully obvious that the people of Croatia are clearly annoyed with tourists. We’ve traveled to many countries in Europe & have never experienced such rude, disrespectful behavior from the majority of the people here. From the airport, to restaurants & even small mom&pop shops. Countless times I’ve had my credit card tossed back at me after making a purchase - and I mean that literally. Never in my 48 yrs have I been treated so rudely & disrespectfully. I don’t understand how you can say hello, smile at someone & have them stare you down or roll their eyes at you. We had a group of 6 in our party & all of us were blown away at the behavior of the people here. Tourism is their livelihood & they clearly don’t want tourists there. We’ve visited Adriatic Sea communities in Italy, Montenegro, Turkey, etc and have NEVER been treated this way. And most places by the Sea (Mlini, Cavtat, Dubrovnik) DO NOT accept the Euro. Only their local currency the Kuna. And they’re cleared offended when you offer to pay with the Euro currency - Mind You Croatia is part of the European Union. So heads up, many places refuse to accept it. Bottom line, too many other countries on the sea to waste your time & money here. Sadly, we were looking forward to an amazing experience but we will without question, not return here.

We visited Dubrovnik in July 2019. While the City and scenery is unbelievable, breathtaking, the town is cashing in on its increased popularity with GOT fans. It seems like their goal is not customer service, but instead they are trying to get as much money out of each person that puts its foot trough the gates. The prices are unrealistically high and then on the top of it most of the places are trying to swindle some more.

There were a couple of Tourist Information places but we only used this one - opposite the fountain statue by the Pile Gate entrance once you are inside the Old Town.
Could not fault the ladies who worked in here they were so helpful and explained about the One Day Pass that was the same price as just The Wall ticket so we bought it and got into 9 attractions for free and also had 24 hour bus travel.
They were knowledgeable about everything we asked them so would recommend going in to see them.

We walked into the tourism office right outside the east gate to old town and they recommended this beach saying it was only a 15 minute walk away. That was a bold faced lie. It's at least 30 min. We would have driven if we knew how far it actually was. Also, we called a cab to get back and the first cab driver wouldn't tale us bc he thought we were wet. To be fair we were damp after we rinsed with fresh water but you're picking people up from a beach, what do you expect? We call for another cab and convince him we're not that wet. He checked the seats when we got out and charged us 5x the metered rate bc his seats were damp and continued to berate us. We gave him 600 hkn (over 7x the metered rate of 80 hkn) to shut him up. If you go to this beach, drive and don't believe the tourism office because this was the second time they gave us severely faulty directions. *review written in July 2016*

The staff there was very helpful with recommendations of things to do in the city, and how to get around. Insightful and friendly.
