What You Can Expect

Island of Korcula with Wine Tasting Day Trip from Dubrovnik

Enjoy the sights of this day trip and have a taste of Croatia's best wines!

The island of Korcula undoubtedly holds a privileged position among the Croatian islands. Here, there are more legends, tales and monuments than anywhere else. Being stonemasons, shipbuilders and seafarers, the people of Korcula shared their gifts with the world, but they saved their best works for their own city.

A bus will carry you to Orebic, where a ferry takes you to the island. Experience the charming streets, beautiful churches and magnificent palaces in the island’s city of the same name, which is also one of the best preserved medieval towns in the Mediterranean. You’ll also hear a little history of the town’s famous son, Marco Polo, who many believe was born here. After sightseeing, enjoy free time to have lunch and even go swimming.

On the way back to Dubrovnik, indulge in excellent local wine at one well-known wine cellar on the Peljesac peninsula.

What a lovely day out!! And even with it being a long day it did not feel that way at all. The coach was comfortable and clean. The driver and guide well spoken and friendly. The guide was very knowledgable about the whole area we travelled through and even shared a few quirky stories. She spoke English and French fluently as well as her native laguage. I thought this to be really well done and she made the whole group feel included.
The views on the drive was amazing even with the high drops to the cliffs below and the narrow road We stopped in Ston and had enough time to walk around the town and explore a bit before driving onwards.
The ferry was clean, comfortable and well kept and manned. The timing of when and where to meet was well communicated and we did not have to wait at all.
I did not expect such a good introduction to Korcula and the short walking tour of the old city part but was pleasantly surprised and very pleased. Again our guide knew the area well and shared her information with us in a really nice way.
It was very unfortunate that being so early in the season not all the shops and restaurants were open yet. But the few that was had great service and good quality products. I had a lovely pasta lunch with an amazing view. I would love to return again and maybe see more of the whole island especially a bit later in the season when all the shops and restaurants are open.
On the return trip we stopped at a small winery and the owner gave us some history about the farm and his family together with the lovely wine we tasted and some local cheese. I thought this really concluded the day well and put everyone in a nice mood to go home and have some dinner when we get back.
The small size of the group really made it appealing to me as I do not like big groups so the whole experience was positive and enjoyable.
I will happily recommend this tour.
