“Excellent tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

My guide, Marko, was very knowledgeable and passionate about Dubrovnik. I took the City Walls tour and was not disappointed. I learned so much more than I would have following along in a book. Marko provided so much additional information and was great with suggestions for exploring the local area and restaurants.

“What a City - and What a Guide!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

Have to agree with Blink _Vader's comments re the guided walks led by Marko. We did the same 2 walks, and found Marko to be not only completely articulate in English, but more than proficient in Latin, when he interpreted some ancient graffiti and other headings and slogans for us! He is well versed in the knowledge needed for these walks, yet is able to respond intelligently and tactfully to incidental questions and comments, as they arise. He is also incredibly patient and alert to the needs of the whole group - as seen on the Walls walk, when a couple in the group struggled to keep up with the steady, but hardly whirlwind pace of the tour. He adapted his presentation to account for their needs, resulting in a walk which lasted a full hour longer than advertised - not that most of us were complaining, as the walk is so spectacular! All in all, Marko is a superb guide, who obviously enjoys but also works very hard to do his best.

“A great way to better understand the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013 via mobile

We chose this tour over others due to the trip advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. We did the Old City tour and the Walls and Wars tour and Marko our guide was fantastic. Knowledgeable, funny and passionate - he really brought the city to life for us. This tour is a real must for visitors to the city as you gain so much mor than you would if you just walk around by yourself.

“Six (!) shining stars for glorious Marko Milos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

Walking tours Dubrovnik offer two outstanding tours :

The tour of the old city is ideal to discover the city, i.e. the buildings and squares of old town Dubrovnik and includes a visit to the Memorial for the Defenders of Dubrovnik.

“Walls and wars” focuses on the history and structure of the walls and the enemies of Dubrovnik, including background about the war of 1991-1995. Participants walk the walls from beginning to end, which can be too strenuous for old people as it involves quite a few stairs.

Me and my girlfriend purchased a combo ticket and were lucky to have Marko Milos as our guide on both occasions.

Although we have participated in many walking tours throughout Europe this guy tops them all and has become our new standard (reference) in guiding. I award him an exceptional six stars for the following reasons :

Marko is a local with due pride and passion for his hometown. He speaks excellent English. He is very knowledgeable and open to questions.

He loves metal music and brought rock attitude and dynamism in the tour. He managed to continually capture the attention of his audience with humor and a little pop quiz.

Although we were quite a large group his organization skills helped make sure no one was left behind and everyone could hear him loud and clear.

Last but not least he did not watch the clock : Because we were a large group we ran a bit behind on schedule. In such circumstances most guides would skip information or rush their audience to finish within the given time schedule.

Marko however decided to work half an hour overtime out of love for his subject and out of conviction that an audience should always get value for money.

“Walking the Walls is the Way to See Dubrovnik”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

This is a most beautiful city. Walking the walls is a must do as from here you will see the most scenic beauty. From topside the continuous clay tile roofs are mesmerizing. The photos are beautiful and the cost is cheap 5 euro.
