Amazing stunning Island, lots of time at leisure. The local guide was really good. Well worth It
Beautiful weather meant the trip along the coast was spectacular. Korcula a small, but interesting island. The guides were all terrific. They spoke excellent English - and German!
A long day. First stop was Ston which really doesn't produce salt anymore is a more like a movie set for salt production. Next onto the island. Very pretty, our guide Ivana did a nice job with not much to work with here, she was really knowledgeable re: history, etc. On our own for lunch - Ivana pointed out a great restaurant, then onto the wine tasting. Really this was more of just a stop with a few samples. I really don't think they should call it a wine tasting. It is more of a visit to a winery.
Korcula is a beautiful place and being relatively small, easy to get around in. There was plenty of time for lunch and wandering the town as well as a good guided tour to start. The local guide was excellent with a great repertoire of funny stories and comedy lines. She could have done a stint on stage! An added bonus to the tour was a stop off at Ston (with the spectacular walls!) on the way but sadly not enough time to explore the walls. The vineyard stop on the way back is also interesting. The only downside was that this was a mixed English/German tour and the repetition in 2 languages becomes tedious. Fortunately on Korcula itself the two language groups split up for local guiding.
You cannot miss this trip. From the stop in Ston, to the village of Korcula, everything is amazing. I loved our guide in Korcula. She was funny and witty and gave us some excellent info. I had the best lunch there of my whole trip and I love that it was sitting sea side! Well organized and plenty of on your own time. It was perfect!!
A very enjoyable day. Andrea our guide was lovely as was our guide (also called Andrea) in Korcula, who was very informative and highly amusing. Korcula town is a lovely little spot. I am surprised no mention is made in the tour literature of the stop-off at Ston when just over into the Peljesac peninsla. It is an amazing place with the longest complete fortress walls around a town in Europe going right up the hillside - you get very good views with reflections if you pay a small amount to go into the salt pan area. I would rate this bit of the tour more highly than the wine cellar.
All arrangements were fine, and the island visit was one of our favorite experiences on our visit to Croatia. However, I was disappointed that the tour was primarily by van. When the advertisement said it was to be by "van and boat," I wrongly presumed that it would primarily be a boat trip from Dubrovnik to Korcula. For clarity, it would be good to advertise more clearly, such as "by van and a short ferry ride.".
Korcula is a beutiful island and it's worth the ride. I just thought that the trip by bus is too tiresome.
The tour and the tour guide were fantastic. Very informative. Bus ride was very comfortable.
bustrip from Dubrovnik is too long, it takes to much time to reach the boat to the island of Korcula,
the boattrip itself was only 10 min. and the boat was very old and dirty
the guides in french and english were friendly and ok
Destination was beautiful but the ride there was a bit tedious- a large group on a bus where guides were translating in 4 languages - never a quiet moment.
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.
This was an excellent day trip out of Dubrovnik. We were picked up at a local hotel and taken to the tour company's depot where we joined tthe coach and were introduced to our guide. Guide was excellent.....entertaining and had a good knowledge of the area. We stopped at Ston on the way to Korcula. an interesteing little village worth a quick look and a cup of coffeee. Korcula is a beautiful island...well worth seeing. We had a local guide there who gave us a short but very interesting tour of the old town. Lunch at a waterside restaurant was great. Stopped at a winery on the way back. Not bad but not overly exciting. The only negative was that it did take nearly an hour to drop everyone off at various hotels when we got back. Not so good if you are one of the last. Overall though it was a very good day trip....very interesting, some beautiful scenery, great value
