Breath taking views especially at sunset. Very smooth both going up and down for anyone who may be nervous of heights. At the top is a wonderful spot behind the main building and over to the right where there is a completely unrestricted view , its quiet rough under foot but bring a small picnic and enjoy the sunset. Also available for a small charge 30KN is a fantastic war museum which is well worth a visit again this is behind the main building.

Just worth noting children under 12 are charged a reduced fare (50KN),
I unfortunately was not aware of this and hadnt see the sign untill we were at the top and ended up paying full fare (200KN ea) for 4 of us, I did query it when i got back down but was advised as the ticket was scanned they could not refund me :-(

There are lots of taxis at the top if you want to take a cable car up and taxi down but the view over the city make it an wonderful over all experience.

Without a doubt if you plan your day(must be good weather)the views are truly stunning down to the old city and to outskirts of the city and the nearby Islands
The Panorama restaurant on the top is an excellent place to wind down relax and take in the view.
If you stick to a hot drink then the value is good and take your time
.A bit pricy otherwise but that is the premium for the superb view.
Here is the negative
If you buy a ticket for cash you get to "jump the queue" whilst if paying by card you have to patiently wait in the main queue. Don't understand the logic applied why can't you buy at same point(cash or card) then everybody understands the system
.
It is a bit pricy but for the energetic there is the option of a one way ticket(up) and then a long downhill walk from the top .If you are at the front of the queue when it is your turn make sure you head straight for the rear rail for the best views of the city going up

Dear 871philipl, Thank for your review. We only have one queue line, and if there are number of people in line, they can experience a bit of wait regardless of the way how they purchased their tickets (online, in tourist agency or on the spot). We accept both cash and credit cards and there is no "jumping the queue" for anyone. Thank you for sharing your experience and best regards, Dubrovnik Cable Car-Team

nice ride. too bad most of the time your photos will be marred by the cables. so to make lemonade out of lemon, just make sure the cable car is in your photos.

in May, the sun is setting at the direction of Lapad peninsula. therefore you wont get the evening rays hitting the Dubrovnik old town and illuminating it. I think early morning might actually be a better time to get a good photo with the soft light

there is a fine dining restaurant at the top of the hill. surprisingly the price is about the same as most restaurants in Dubrovnik, which means pricey but not more outrageously expensive. you need advanced reservation if you want a table right at the edge looking out to the Adriatic coastline

220 HRK return was absolutely not worth it as cars only go up every 15 mins unless busy. All thats at the top is a little viewing point that’s crowded and once you’ve seen the view for about 5 minutes there’s not much else to do and nowhere to sit except some steps that isn’t positioned to look over the city. One of the viewing platforms was also full of bushes which restricted the view anyway. It’s ridiculously priced and I wish I kept my money, don’t bother!

Dear mel_d_mel, Thank you for your review. Opportunity for several activities has been provided on the upper station like visiting The War Museum, Buggy adventure ride, Hiking trail, Panorama zip line, drinks and meals in the indoor and outdoor Panorama restaurant, shopping at genuine Ohrid pearl shop. From the Upper station of the Cable Car, you can easily see the Adriatic Sea, whole Dubrovnik region, parts of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro which cannot be seen from the other spots in Dubrovnik. Regarding the price we believe that we provide the best value for money and our prices are set accordingly, however we are aware that not everybody will share our opinion. Thank you for sharing your experience and best regards, Dubrovnik Cable Car-T.

This is not cheap, but well worth the expense. The views over the old town of Dubrovnik are beautiful as are the vistas across the coast, the sea and back to the mountains. The restaurant at the top was too pricy and we made do with bottled water we took in a backpack. Combining a return ticket with the Homeland War exhibition at the top is well worth it. We could have spent a lot longer going round the exhibition but had much more to fit in on a day trip. The cable car is definitely one of the top two things to do in Dubrovnik.

A short ride to the top then provides superb views across the coast and down in to the Old Town of Dubrovnic. However at approx. £20 per person it's very expensive for the experience. While there we had a drink and meal in the Panorama restaurant which is good value for money, especially if you've already been in to one of the sister restaurants in town which give customers a 10% discount card. Booking ahead is recommended as others wise you may go and be disappointed if they can't accommodate you.

Great views from the top. A really smooth ride despite being quite a windy day. Despite reading other negative reviews we didn’t have to queue at all. It’s worth checking the time of cruise arrivals to make sure you don’t visit at a potentially busy time. It’s worth paying the extra to visit the museum/exhibition at the top with details and photos about the homeland war if you’re interested in recent history. It is relatively expensive but a one off experience.

Here, it’s about the destination, and not the journey itself. The view at the top is amazing but the cable car ride was a damp squib. Unless you are lucky enough to get a good spot, you don’t see much anyway. The ride was short (and expensive) and be prepared to queue for this privilege

I think there are better options to get to the top, and better options to get down such as a hike to soak in the view.

Dear Kungski, Thank you for your review. We are sorry that you didn't enjoy Dubrovnik Cable Car and that you experienced a queue line as they are not on place during whole day but just on specific hours on some days. We believe we do provide the best value for money and our prices are set accordingly, however, we are aware that not everybody will share our opinion. Cable Car ride lasts 3,5 minutes in one direction and cabins travel 778 meters distance between the lower and upper stations, passing over one column. From the Upper station of the Cable Car, you can easily see the Adriatic Sea, whole Dubrovnik region, parts of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro which cannot be seen from the other spots in Dubrovnik. Thank you again for sharing your experience and best regards, Dubrovnik Cable Car-T.

The cable car ride was good, that's where the good stops. The experience itself was overpriced, the view from the top was poor (far better view along the coastal road to the East) and the queue at sunset was long. I wouldn't recommend this attraction.

We visited Dubrovnik Cable Car on a Monday evening, it cost £45 for 2 return tickets but is more than worth it. The short trip offers incredible views of the Old Town and the surrounding area. The cable car station at the top has a restaurant if you want food/drink with a spectacular view.
