Island of Korcula with Wine Tasting Day Trip from Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik, Croatia

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

There was so much more to this tour than just the island of Korcula, a long coach ride along the coach was a great way to see some of the rural parts of Croatias beautiful coast. Also included were stop offs for the town of Stol and some vine tasting (and of course the chance to buy) at a rural home vineyard. The Island itself, which is very beautiful, Venetian in many ways however is a little limited in the amount of things to see whilst there. That said, the whole day itself the sightseeing along the way and the town of Korcula, is still recommended as a lovely day out- but beware of the heat, it can be immense.

Small-Group Bosnia and Herzegovina Day Trip from Dubrovnik including Medjugorje and Mostar

Dubrovnik, Croatia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

I was fascinated to learn more of the history of Mostar, I was aware of the basics however actually being there and seeing some of the signs of the war still evident in places was something else- The trip consisted of myself and an American, two passengers our guide and driver- it was a perfect scenario as we had a great guide who was very knowledgable and entusiastic. The drive through Croatia and Bosnia was full of sights and information and with the stop off at medjugorje being so far from what I was expecting- it was the legend of how the town became such a religious focal point for so many. Mostar itself was something else, I had been advised to take this trip prior to booking and wasnt disappointed. The guide again took us from the minibus to the old town, a quick walk though pointing out certain elements, we watched the short historical film which shown footage from the "battle of the bridge" and brought it all to life. We were then given a few hours to explore the town and found it was more than sufficient to see all the sights and have a good hearty lunch. We stopped off at a 3rd point on our return, a hillside fort/monastery village (Pocitel (if i recall correctly) which was a 30 minute stop with time to climb the walk up to the tower at the peak with a grand view. A truly fantastic day out, history, authentic rustic sights and a very good guide
