Continue towards Orebić, taking in the beautiful panoramic scenery of the vineyards and old settlements of the Peljesac Peninsula as your guide tells you about the peninsula’s wineries and mussel-breeding.
In Orebić, board a boat and admire the striking blue color of the Adriatic as you make your way to Korcula Island. Wander around the streets of Korcula with your guide and see how nature, history and local culture merge together. Next, visit Marco Polo's supposed birthplace, St Marco Cathedral and other historical landmarks. Have free time to explore more on your own and have lunch at a local restaurant (own expense); then meet your guide and return to Orebić by boat.
Back on your comfortable minivan, admire the Croatian countryside on the drive to Potomje, where you will visit one of Croatia’s most famous wineries. After a guided tour of the winery, enjoy a wine tasting, as well as samples of brandy and liqueur , accompanied by a sommelier.
Finally, relax on your vehicle and admire more views of the landscape and Adriatic Coast on the drive back to Dubrovnik.

This is a phenomenal trip and Philip, our tour guide is so great and the do trust his recommendations on food suggestions the local restaurant he suggested was phenominal and very well priced but do bring cash. And also on the way back to Dubrovnik he let us get out and take photos with the 500 year old trees at the Arboretum and also had a special surprise (although you do need a at least a few people on the tour to want to eat) he brought us to a oyster/muscle farm that we pass on the way back and they truly were the best oysters I've ever had and you watched as the owner went into the water to fetch them. And if you're not into oysters the view on the lake is great too. Incredible and well, well worth it if you like raw oysters and so inexpensive just do bring some cash. Great, Great, Great tour!!!

This day trip is absolutely fabulous. A must do for any visitor to Croatia!
You had enough free time to explore Ston and Korcula in some detail. We were even able to stop to taste the fresh oysters on our way back to the city which was not in the original itinerary. Thank you Phillip for everything!
