What You Can Expect

Small-Group Tour: Ston and Korcula Island Day Trip from Dubrovnik with Wine Tasting

Ston and Korcula Island Day Trip from Dubrovnik

Watch the city vanish as you head north on this exciting guided day trip from Dubrovnik, heading for the lands north of the city. Stop on the contemporary bridge on the way out of the city for a photograph and a panoramic view of the new port, Gruz, and then continue on, passing through small seaside villages.

Arrive in Ston and learn some of intriguing historical facts about the small town: that its walls, some of the longest in Europe, marked the northern border of the erstwhile Dubrovnik Republic and connected the town of Ston to the more diminutive Mali Ston (Little Ston). Hear how the town boasts some of the best oysters in Europe and that even Roman emperors used to request the oysters to be delivered all the way to Rome. Take some time to stroll the streets and sit down at a restaurant to enjoy a snack, including some oysters (at own expense) before continuing on to vineyard-laden Orebić.

Board the boat to cross over to Korčula Island and enjoy the brief ride through the Adriatic Sea. In Korčula Town, stroll the narrow cobbled lanes of the walled town, supposedly once the home of Marco Polo. Locals may be convinced of this fact, but no one really knows for sure where Mr Polo was born.

After exploring Korcula Town, head back to the mainland and ride in a comfortable vehicle to Potomje, home to one of the Dalmatian Coast’s most notable wineries. Sample some local wine, get a tour of the grounds, and then head back to Dubrovnik, enjoying the rustic countryside.

All our day trips from Dubrovnik were excellent, and this one was no exception. Breathtaking landscapes and seascapes, the color of the water, the shape and style of the buildings, everything was a nice experience. Highly recommended.

This was a last minute tour for my family and I was unsure that everyone would like it. That said Korcula was amazing and provided a much more relaxed atmosphere than that found in Dubrovnik. I wish we could have spent more time from our holidays there. In addition the stop at Ston where we had an amazing meal of mussels was a great way to end the day trip

This tour was amazing, as was our guide Ivana. It rained, but the people in our group made the most of it. Korcula was beautiful, and we had the best pizza at a restaurant pointed out by Ivana. The wine tasting was good, we weren't limited to how many we could try. I highly recommend this tour!

Great day out. Korcula was a stunning little island. Ston was very interesting, definitely do the wall walk. Would have been great to spend a little extra time there for some oyster and mussel tasting.
