We took a walking tour of Dubrovnik's Old City with Elite Travel as they came recommended by the host on our yacht.
We were given a tour of the city by Lidia. She was a friendly guide and had an excellent command of English. However, the quality of the tour left much to be desired.
We started some way outside the Pile Gate, overlooking two fortresses. I can say no more as Lidia did not feel the need to elaborate on them. We stood in the baking heat for over 20 minutes while she talked about Croatian record-keeping (this would be a theme of our tour) and other seemingly irrelevant topics.
When we finally made it into the Old City the tour became truly rambling. Lidia would often lose sight of her subject and forget what she was talking about. Outside a shop on the main thoroughfare through the city, Lidia spent nearly 15 minutes talking about traditional Croatian food in the three areas of the country: hardly a necessity when touring an historic city.
All in all the tour was sparse on relevant and interesting information. It was, by far, too reliant on rambling thought and opinions about Croatia. Lidia was very keen to tell us what Croatia invented before anyone else, but less keen to talk about Dubrovnik's rich history. The tour of fifteen people left feeling very disappointed: several complained to our host, who I believe passed our comments on.
