This was the last tour of our vacation and it was very sweet because of our love of music. We even ran into two couples whom we had met on our cruise of Croatia. A great way to end our holiday.
Ida, the tour guide, was very nice and helpful. Also the dance was joyful and overall very interesting place was the village.
We were picked up at our hotel at 8:10 and after going to other hotels to collect other passengers arrived at the venue about 9:30. There is a small museum that is interesting but it does not take much time to see all of it. If you do not want to attend mass in the church there is not much to keep you occupied until the show starts at 11:15.There are some small stalls selling home made linen but we thought these were rather expensive. The show itself is very good and the dancing and music are well worth the wait. They obviously enjoy participating in the show and the hour it takes goes very quickly. I would encourage you to go as it is only for a morning and not too much travelling involved.
I was disappointed with this tour. Our guide left us to our own devices and unless you wanted to go to the Mass it was a wasted half day. I was not very excited with the dancing and the crafts, although beautiful were very expensive. It would have helped if the guide had explained things in the museum. J and H
The trip up to the village could easily be done by taxi or bus from Dubrovnik. I say this because we were picked up at 9 or so, went to the village and unless you wanted to go to Mass (which we did not) there was nothing to do except go thru a small museum, see some merchants with their local crafts outside selling their goods and then sit and wait over one hour to see the show. Even if you went to the Mass which finished at ll am, by the time you got out there would be very few good places to sit (you actually sit on the church steps to watch the show). So as I said if you wanted to see the show you would be better off arriving a half hour or so before ll am, try and get a step and then go back by cab or local bus. I would not recommend this tour.
