Watch the city vanish as you head north on this exciting guided day trip from Dubrovnik, heading for the lands north of the city. Stop on the contemporary bridge on the way out of the city for a photograph and a panoramic view of the new port, Gruz, and then continue on, passing through small seaside villages.

Arrive in Ston and learn some of intriguing historical facts about the small town: that its walls, some of the longest in Europe, marked the northern border of the erstwhile Dubrovnik Republic and connected the town of Ston to the more diminutive Mali Ston (Little Ston). Hear how the town boasts some of the best oysters in Europe and that even Roman emperors used to request the oysters to be delivered all the way to Rome. Take some time to stroll the streets and sit down at a restaurant to enjoy a snack, including some oysters (at own expense) before continuing on to vineyard-laden Orebić.

Board the boat to cross over to Korčula Island and enjoy the brief ride through the Adriatic Sea. In Korčula Town, stroll the narrow cobbled lanes of the walled town, supposedly once the home of Marco Polo. Locals may be convinced of this fact, but no one really knows for sure where Mr Polo was born.

After exploring Korcula Town, head back to the mainland and ride in a comfortable vehicle to Potomje, home to one of the Dalmatian Coast’s most notable wineries. Sample some local wine, get a tour of the grounds, and then head back to Dubrovnik, enjoying the rustic countryside.

Need a microphone and speakers since people in back could not hear driver. Driver will not rotate people so front two people had personal tour while for back people, driver was just a driver. Need to change that!

Good day trip away from busy Dubrovnik city

Each location was great. Ston with its history and salt mines Korcula with its rich history, architecture, artist gallery and the beautiful Allie’s. Felt like Venice. Great restaurants on the eastern side of the peninsula. The Peljesac peninsula itself was a treat despite the weather not being great. Still had a great day. Few points for improvement: The boat from Orebic to Korcula was too small and water very choppy. Could do with a larger boat Stop over the Trudman bridge was skipped - bit disappointed Wine tour stated a walk through the grounds, this wasn’t done either. Instead a tour of museum and replicas. Would’ve been much better if vineyards and real grapes, process of wine extraction was shown instead. Overall a good day and would recommend it to others.

I booked late the evening before and despite calling to make sure my name would be on the list, my name wasn’t on the list in the morning however the guide was very professional and called HQ and got me on another company's Tour doing the same itinerary. Ston was great. Just enough time, if you walk st a good pace, to climb the wall. Korcula is beautiful and very photogenic. The wine tasting was good, a variety of wine and liquors.

We chose this day trip from Dubrovnik over Montenegro or Bosnia so we wouldn’t have to deal with a border crossing, however at this time of year don’t think that would have been much of a problem. There is a lot of time driving with one hour in Ston and about three hours in Korcula. We were picked up at 07:20 and back at 17:30. The roads are very winding so could be a problem for some. The island of Korcula is quiet and lovely and we were fortunate to have a beautiful sunny day. Our driver gave lots of information on the drive but you are on your own outside. I meant to take my guidebook pages which would have been helpful. Wine tasting on the drive back was very nice.

A full day tour along the Croatia coast with a stop in Ston and time on Korcula island.
Marilyn P
, Sep 2018
The bus ride along the coast from Dubrovnik to Ston, and then on to the site to the boat launch to Korcula island was just lovely. The stop at Ston was useful for bathroom break and coffee -- really not much to see there. No organized tour was given. The boat ride and time on Korcula island were nice, but our guide, Doris, did not give any organized tour of the island, did not even accompany us to the main street of the town, and did not point out any restroom facilities. She simply showed us a map and we were left on our own. We're glad we did this excursion, but I would skip Ston and hope to get a more engaged tour guide. Wine tasting stop was excellent!

Ston is amazing but very small so not as lot to do but well worth visiting for an hour or so. But Korcula is brilliant and we wish we had had more time to explore as it felt like by the time you had lunch, you were having to head back to the ferry.

Lee G
, Sep 2018
Enjoyable day outside of Dubrovnik. Ston was interesting but only 45 minutes so not much time to get far across the walls and see the town and it would be great to extend the time spent here a little. 3 hours in Korcula was sufficient with opportunity to take a nice lunch and enjoy the sea views. Wine tasting was brief but the folks there are well organised and you get 6 wines to taste before a walk around and departure. It's worth stating that this is not a guided tour although our driver was very friendly and provided observations and tips on what to visit at the locations.

This was a lovely tour filled with history and culture. There was free time to explore Ston and Korcula. Our guide gave us excellent suggestions of activities, shops, and restaurants to try. The winery is lovely with all local wines unique to the area. This tour was a great way to introduce yourself to Ston and Korcula, and we found many reasons to come back and explore more!

I went in late October. Pretty much everywhere in both Ston and Korcula was closed. Very disappointing and surprised the tour was offered at thE time considering. Even the Marco Poli museum was closed. The only good part was the wine tasting and the wonderful driver.

An exceptional tour with wonderful views of the coastline and many of the islands of Croatia. Our first stop was at Ston, a medieval town where we stayed for an hour to walk round and take refreshments. There was insufficient time to walk part of the wall from which we would have been able to take photos as there was a lot to fit into the day. From there we moved to Korcula Island where we had more time to explore. This is a fascinating place and we were able to walk up the bell tower to get some splendid views. There are plenty of places to eat. The wine tasting gave us a chance to sample both red and white wine produced in Croatia. The vineyard is noted mainly for its red wine but also produces some very acceptable white wine as well. Our driver, Chris, made this a most enjoyable fun day out and I would thoroughly recommend this tour.

Loved KOrcula and the wine tasting. The ride was scenic also but the guide barely spoke, maybe his English was minimal but he was an excellent driver. Would be better if a few scenic photo stops were included in future tours.

Our driver wasn't very informative about some interesting points, an places we were to visit, we drove for about 15 minutes before he introduce himself. Also we weren't given a map to follow our day procedures, which a lot people like to do, but overall it was a lovely day, but not as good as other tours we have.

This was not a great experience. Our guide didn't speak very good English, didn't have much knowledge or explain a great deal during the day and didn't have the license to guide us in Korcula city. The agenda itself is great, Ston is a nice little stop and the oysters on way back were yum!
