Wow we had an 8 hour safari which took us out of Croatia and into Bosnia through the streets, dirt tracks, vineyards, fruit fields etc. Also included was a tour of the caves which were absolutely stunning. Highly recommend this trip you will NOT be disappointed.

The views on this trip are incredible and the buggies are so much fun to drive. I would recommend this to anyone that I know. The manager of the operation, Sandi, is one of the friendliest people I've ever met and knows an incredible amount of fun things to do in town outside of the buggies so ask for him.

During our free time in Dubrovnik we rode the cable car to the top of Old Town. Little did we know we would find the buggy ride company there, too. It was a BLAST. We paid 25Euro/190 Kuna per person for two people or 35 Euro/270 Kuna for one person. The fee includes buggy; fuel; helmet; goggles (we did not use them); and bottles of water. At the time (October 2014) this was a relatively new attraction and the owners were trying very hard to make a go of it.

One of the owners served as our guide. He is excellent. After a brief driving lesson and strapping on our helmets, we were blasting off into the brush of upper Dubrovnik. We saw the remains of a fort built by Napoleon, ranch and found shrapnel from the last war. We stopped for photos of magnificent vistas over the sea.

The promotional materials say, “this expedition will take you to locations rarely seen by visitors to Dubrovnik, including hilltop fortresses and a Croatian ranch and locations rarely seen by visitors.” The rides depart hourly from 0900 to 1900. Participants can also call the company to arrange for a car or van transfer for the one-hour ride. We were able to store our backpacks in the back of the buggy and I secured mine by strapping it over the back of my seat. You will rock and roll and laugh your head off. There are plenty of stops along the way to get out, stretch your legs and relax a bit before charging off on the next leg of the journey. At those points, the guide gives commentary; we learned a lot about the war and saw lots of residual damage. I do not recommend the ride for people with back problems since there is considerable jarring over rocky paths. I would love to take this ride again if I were to return to the lovely city of Dubrovnik.

Well what can I say apart from DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY . The guides didn't want to know made up some excuse about tour being full for the last drive . So me being me waited to see, waited a good hour or more not one tour went out . When we questioned the operator he arrogantly shrugged his shoulders and walked off . At this point my blood boiled over, went to go after him good job the wife was with me . O well they don't want my money then neither will they get it any time in the future .

Dear Paul, We are very sorry to hear about your impression of Buggy Safari Dubrovnik and that you were disappointed with our staff and the way they apparently treated you. We are sincerely upset with such a low rating which is normally absolutely not a standard of our services as you can see judging by most reviews. We are constantly working hard to keep our service on high level. However, all guest reviews are very important for us, both negative and positive, so thank you for your time spent on sharing your opinion. Sincerely, Buggy safari Dubrovnik

When you exit the top cable car station you'll see the guys selling buggy safari trips in front of you. I'd seen the activity on trip advisor and knew it would be something I'd enjoy. I expected it to be quite tame and the buggies to be slow, I was wrong! The track the trip goes on is rocky and very bumpy, absolutely awesome fun bouncing along it flat out. My girlfriend and I spent the entire time laughing. The guide was really nice and took us to a couple of old forts and explained a bit of the history and what it was like during the war. The trip lasted about 45 minutes and I would happily have done the same again straight away. I'd definitely recommend this trip, although probably not for the elderly or anyone with a bad back

Great activity, highly recommend!
We turned up at the Mount Srdj by the cable car we discovered these guys and decided to go - it looked like so much fun!
There is a choice of 2 or 4 seater buggy, you can drive yourself or be drives by a guide. You go in a group and follow a guide around. The drive is safe with enough exciting challenging spots to enjoy.
Our guide Zdravko was great, very attentive, made sure that everyone was comfortable and understands the safety rules. We were very well looked after - both my son and I were given jackets, dust goggles and hygiene hats to use under the helmets.
Zdravko has a lot of knowledge about the local area, which he was keen to share. He took us to three different locations and gave us an opportunity to admire the views, take pictures, and ask questions. Every time he made sure we were safe to carry on with the journey - seat belt check, etc. He kept looking back as he leased the trip and slowed down every time he couldn’t see the last night (there were only two on this trip, I believe bigger groups are led by two people, one in front one, at the back.)
My tips would be wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty, trust your guide, and keep your distance otherwise you get a lot of dust to breath in.
Take the cable car there and back (very safe and gentle even if you don’t like heights), and combine your journey with visiting the war museum.
You will get a great day out of it!

Before we went there I mailed the organisation be sure there where a spot available for us, since we where on a cruise. They told us to be there at 15:00hrs. When we arrived about 13:00 I told them I had an appointment at 15:00hrs and asked where do we meet? I had to hear that there were no spot more available, after having mailed and received a confirmation. Not nice at all of them. Thanks God I haven't paid in advanced.
So my advice is to do the excursion with the cruise line to be sure be disappointed.

Once you go up in the cable car the buggy safari is just outside, nice little tour and some history thrown in about the surrounding areas and dubrovnik in general which was a eye opener to hear what went on.
The tour takes about a hour and it is enjoyable, all be it you look like you've got a fake tan if your the passenger so always be the driver :-D Take some sunglasses as it is dusty to help with seeing your way around.

If you decide to do this, contact the company or speak to their rep (usually located just off the bus in Pile), as often they will arrange for transport up, saving you the cost of the cable car.

Dario arranged for our transport up and down after the activity- much appreciated!! He also waited with us for the car to arrive- which is a great relief, you don't want to be getting into random cars in unfamiliar cities!

The staff were lovely and friendly. Our guide was knowledgable and passionate, and the buggys themselves were great fun! My partner was dubious about the activity as it was the most expensive activity on our trip (240KN/£24 pp to share a 2 person buggy) but afterwards he said it was the best part of our trip and I agree. Gets you up above the city and out into the wilderness a bit. Great experience!
