What people are saying about Korčula Island

VERY INTERESTING EXCURSION

We picked up a van for 6 pax. the guide (Drazan) super friendly and telling us a lot of things while, the stops were: Ston: they impress their walls that unfortunately we didn't have time to see inside and the salt flats, then van again seeing the Panoramas of the Pelješac peninsula Very beautiful and interesting stories, to take a taxi board to the island of Korčula: go up to the bell tower and enjoy the city of Marco Polo and take a dip in a cove, taxi board again to take the van and go to do a tasting of local wines in Potomje: it is interesting although I keep the wines of Spain :) After the wines we went to an oyster and mussel farm that we bought and we were lucky to try direct water, this experience and what surrounds it thus as the endearing marriage that runs it was the best (believe me it is worth seeing). Good company, driver / guide of 10 and an excursion that takes you into the culture of the area. Recommendable.

Great trip all the way around. Had an early pickup at our hotel (Sheraton Dubrovnik). Let on time in a very comfortable Mini bus with 24 seats. Our driver was an expect getting us to each location ahead of schedule. And, our guide, Hannah, was exceptional---well organized, very knowledgeable, interesting and quite proficient in English. the cruise to Korcula, old town orientation walk and wine tasting were highlights. we definitely recommend this excursion ..well worth the price!

Very enjoyable trip! We were a group of 7 people in a comfortable minivan and the trip lasted approximately 10.5 Hours - enough to make a short stop at Ston, and 3 hours at Korcula. Its a very beautiful island with historic old town and lovely coast (although not very appropriate for swimming for the lack of proper beaches). Our guide was excellent - polite, informative and made sure that we are comfortable. A great value for money this trip.

We have been with them all day! From 7 in the morning to 18, but they pass quickly. Very interesting if you want to know several places without being worried about schedules and transport since Mario has taken us and indicated ferry times to visit Korcula and return, in addition to telling us many curiosities about the area and Croatian society and history. Highly recommended!

Interesting tour. Good to have the chance to see Ston. 3 hours in Korcula was just right. Wine tasting was fun. Guide was knowledgeable and considerate.
