Discover the secrets locked inside the walls of the Old City


1,5 hours

On Wannabe Croatian Tour discover the life of the citizens living within the walls of Dubrovnik’s Old City. Talk with them, experience the spirit of the past centuries through a maze of narrow streets and small squares. Visit the oldest parts of Dubrovnik beyond the usual tourist paths, where fascinating views will open up to you in an unexpected way.

Discover the churches and highlights that you will not find in travel guides. On Wannabe Croatian Tour, you will not be bored. Get prepared for some sarcasm and how to learn history in a different way. You will be able to see and discover all the highlights of Dubrovnik and get all local tips as I am a local guide.

The route will lead us along the picturesque residential side streets, green market and cafes to the old port, so prepare your cameras and questions. During walking through vibrant residential streets, key elements of street planning and medieval house construction requirements will be explained.

As we stroll through narrow streets, we will meet the locals in front of their houses, and maybe we will be able to take a peek into their family homes to see their daily routine. We will check what’s cooking as Croatia is also famous for its food. We will enjoy amazing views and photo ops from non-touristic parts of Dubrovnik. At the end of the Wannabe Croatian Tour, I will teach you how to enjoy coffee in the Croatian way. You will fall in love with Croatia.

‘Wannabe Croatian Tour’ is all about how to embrace local culture, tradition, history, and way of life like a real local through the eyes of a traveler. You will unlock the secret of easy living in Dubrovnik.

As I will take you around let me introduce myself. I am a traveler by soul, tour guide by passion, photographer by love. Traveled to 120 countries around the globe. National Geographic co-host and local expert featured in various foreign media like BBC, CNN, PBS about movies, history, and photo tours.

Ivan Vukovic is a true professional

We were a party of 4 who arranged for a private tour with Ivan Vukovic prior to our arrival in Dubrovnik. (…) The actual tour was extremely informative and Ivan’s personality and sense of humor made the time go by extremely fast. The initial Dubrovnik tour was so wonderful that we actually decided to have Ivan show us more sights the following day. That was a great decision in that we saw areas of Dubrovnik that are not seen on “normal” tours. Finally, Ivan’s follow-up after we left Dubrovnik for Split was greatly appreciated. He is the best!

Game of Thrones tour with Ivan Vukovic

We loved the Game of Thrones tour we did with an excellent and fun guide Ivan Vukovic! He did a great job in comparing King’s Landing and real Dubrovnik’s history and actually making the history so much fun, which we never thought it was possible …the time flew by! We highly recommend it!

An incredible and fun experience

Ivan is one of the best tour guides you could ever ask for. He’s extremely well-informed, interesting and most importantly, hysterical. He will keep you laughing and smiling throughout your entire adventure. Don’t miss a chance to book a tour with him during your stay.

A throne to Ivan Vuka

We first met Ivan and his Game of Thrones tour through another Dubrovnik guide, a Portuguesa em Dubrovnik – Cristiana Ferreira. The promise of an amazing tour through the sets of the GOT tv show was fulfilled and overrated my expectations. Ivan is a fantastic guide, who create a complete tour through the most important sets and scenes of the tv show and led the group to know each other. I totally approved and recommended Ivan and his GOT tour. “The Winter is Coming”.

Exceptional Tour Guide Ivan Vukovic

We were lucky to have Ivan Vukovic as our tour guide. It was four of us in the group. He is very passionate, flexible and professional. Ivan was incredibly knowledgeable, giving us detailed information about the history of Dubrovnik, the old city and surrounding area. He brought us to a panoramic place to see Dubrovnik from the top by night. It was amazing view 🙂 We all loved the tour and the passion that Ivan has for her city. We highly recommend Ivan as tour guide. He is the best 🙂
