Konavle Valley Small-Group Bike Tour from Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik, Croatia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

The bicycle ride itself was rather short - more time was spent travelling to and from the location (about 40 mins each way). Overall, the experience was fun and the guide was very friendly.

The half-way mark was the monastery where we had a bit of a break. Nobody was allowed in the building anymore which was a shame.

Topping the experience was a wine-tasting session towards the end which was very refreshing.

Definitely worth doing.

My Review

This is ideal for travellers who want everything organised for them end-to-end... from the moment you land at the airport, to all the hotel transfers, ferry trips between islands, city tours and final transfer back to the airport. All inclusive, no hassles. They also leave a message at your hotel with regards to the pick up time the next day to the next destination. Really very organised and punctual.

The downside is the hotel selection. Our first hotel in Split (Hotel Globo) was in the middle nowhere, surrounded by empty carparks and ugly concrete, desserted buildings. Even the surrounding cafes/restaurants were depressingly empty. It is about 15 mins to the beautiful part of town, the real Split that visitors paid to see.

The subsequent hotels were also just average. Our Dubrovnik hotel (Hotel Lero) was a good 20 minutes walk to town. Getting back was an uphill battle, quite literally. Only our hotel in Hvar was in a perfect location.

It would be worthwhile if Viator gave the option to upgrade to a more decent place to stay. Alot of travellers want to be in a central location and will be willing to pay more. The convenience of going back to the hotel for a quick change or a nap is not really an easy option.
