Driver in Dubrovnik

While on a Mediterranean cruise with Holland America in May ’07, one of our stops was Dubrovnik. We were fortunate to have hired, online, a wonderful driver, Tomislav Radulovic (e-mail Tom met us at the ship when we docked and was exceptionally pleasant and informative. He speaks English quite well.

His cost without a guide was €180 (near $242) for three to four hours; it’s more if you want a guide. The tour was based on our interests and needs. He will work with you to give you what you want.

Tom drove us around the town and then took us to a beautiful restaurant by a river for lunch: Restaurant Konavoski Dvori — an excellent choice, by the way. Prices on the menu ranged from about €5 to €20 ($7-$27), and the food was terrific.

The total cost of my meal was about €18 (I drank tap water). I had the most delicious frog legs accompanied by an excellent tossed green salad, not to mention the best homemade bread I’ve had in years, baked over an open fire and under a bell. The thought of it makes my mouth water.
